Contest Brief

I am looking to have a birthday present made for my girlfriend. Specifically, a comic book front cover that I can frame for her. Artwork would be in a "Tank Girl" style (refer attached image) and would be of two odd superheroines based off her cats

These would be

Lola Ebola
-a costumed crime fighter in a dark leather battle suit like worn in the Kickass comics. Maybe it's torn, or a she is a little bruised. That's where the tank girl aesthetic comes in.
-Dark brown hair, green eyes, not typical super hero skinny, as feline Lola likes the cat food a little too much. She should look a little fierce.
-No super powers or weapons to speak of, just a talented brawler.

Cerebella,
-A pleasant, absentminded genius, dressed in comfortable clothes, wearing a lab coat over the top. Nothing too high tech. More nerdy librarian/lab tech, rather than Tony Stark tech whiz.
-thin, pale, with a round face, glasses, and light brown hair in braids that looks vaguely like a brain. A few wisps escaping around her face.
-No powers, just a high level of intelligence. Lola drags her out on these things as she thinks it will make her more extroverted, and less quiet and mousy.

Layout
-A scene with the two of them. Lola looking confident and happy, perhaps leaning on Bella or interacting in some way. Possibly in the back ground, the smouldering wreckage of whatever havoc Lola has wrought. Lola having a great time, and Bella possibly looking a little awkward as it's not really her scene but she doesn't want to disappoint her friend.
-At the top, the text "The thrilling adventures of Lola Ebola and Cerebella". I'm seeing "Lola Ebola" in a more jagged dark text, the way you would picture the title of a comic where the main character has the word Ebola in her name. "Cerebella" would be in a more simple, flowing or cursive script. As if Lola and written her name, and Bella had written hers.

    To assist, here is a link to some photos of the cats in question.

    Re the possible powers, Bella, super smart, Lola, hmm...maybe just a skilled fighter with a terrifying death glare.

    the contest is too lengthy in time can you decrease the duration?

    Just adding here in case anyone misses it. -If possible, could you make Lola curvy rather than the typical superhero thin (kitty likes her food a little too much). Also, would it be possible to put Bella in a lab coat? Last quick note, there will need to be some room at the top for the title. A "The adventures of Lola Ebola and Cerebella" style of thing. For the text, I was thinking jagged gothy style lettering for Lola Ebola and a softer, more cursive style for Cerebella

    To provide a little more direction,

    Lola Ebola - dressed in a dark cat suit, with dark hair, and green eyes. Think Catwoman crossed with Harley Quinn.

    Cerebella - dressed in comfortable brown clothing, round face, big spectacles, maybe a pencil behind her ear. Light brown hair pulled back in the aforementioned style with wisps escaping around her face. An absentminded librarian or scientist.

    Lola the more brash of the two, perhaps leaning on Bella, while Bella is focused on a book or similar. Lola playing the superhero, and trying to get her quiet friend in on the action.

    Also a fan of the Rat Queens style of illustration.
