Vixen Concept Art Released…Was Short Hair the Original Plan?

Fans of both Andy Poon, conceptual designer, and DC’s Vixen know likely know two things. The first is that Poon’s design tend to luck much better than what we end up seeing on screen – see the Hawks, Firestorm, etc. – and the second, Vixen typically has short hair. When the first photos of Megalyn Echikunwoke’s live-action Vixen were released many fans were disappointed that the character didn’t have her traditional short hair, despite it being a comic book staple and being featured in the animated prequel Vixen series. Now, it seems, that both the short hair and a costume similar to the one worn by the character in the animated series were initially planned for the Echikunwoke’s live-action debut. Poon’s art is featured below (the short haired design):
