May Rocksteady Character Design with Process

This is a design for a personal comic project, for our protagonist May Rocksteady.
I've added in initial design concepts and sketches up to the most recent version. When approaching a design like this, I am trying to add character and story into the costume, attitude and design. For this character, the idea is a "working class" mech pilot. I tried to add elements of more industrial/functional design elements to a "sci-fi" idea. The concept here is to push the idea of the function and mundanity of non-mundane ideas.
