Barbara Gordon by sympathized Barbara Gordon by sympathized

Paint Tool SAI, Corel Painter 12, PS CS5 for colors + retouching. [Ref]

I mentioned I wanted to delve into the realm of drawing ladies, so here's a little warm-up! The lovely Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. Personally, I enjoyed her more as Oracle, but she does look pretty cute in the Bat-cowl! Also, I shamelessly love doing portraits, so I let myself enjoy painting this and tried not to feel too guilty about not practicing full-body anatomy. (...i still feel guilty, wahaha~) This was a nice break from the 4+ days of work that usually go into drawing 3/4 or full-bodied DC boys. This took maybe 8-10 hours total? That's fast for me, ahaha! So nice~

Oookay, that's it for me! I probably won't be able to upload anything new for a week or two. School's approaching midterm season, and I also got another part-time retail job, so I'll probably be too busy to draw. T_T

This is really nice! I love her hair color. You did a good job on the skin shading as well.

Thank you! This is the best compliment anyone could have given! That's what I was really striving for - to capture her comic book image in a more realistic form! Thank you again!

That's one mighty fine illustration. Worthy of a book-cover. ;-)

Wahhh, THANK YOU! ;A; While I was doing her eyes, I was like.. "HOW DO EYELASHES WORK?! WHAT?! WHAT IS GOING ON" ahahaha!!!

I think I'm going to indulge myself for a little while and do some more portraits.. e_e;; THEY'RE JUST TOO FUN.
