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
Other recent DC stuff:
This is really nice! I love her hair color. You did a good job on the skin shading as well.
Amazing, love the way you draw her hair!
Incredible, you've really got an eye for detail. Really good stuff here.
Wow, now this looks great! Awesome drawing, I love it!
I love her more as Oracle too, but you've done a great job drawing her as Batgirl here!
Your style of rendering is amazing I'm so in love!
I love redheads, excellent work on her face and hair!
I saw Huntress's work and immediately I searched this one too...Awesome just like the other!
That's exactly how I would picture her. Great job!
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.
Gorgeous, great job!
Excellent take on Babs, lover how much life there is to expression and the shading on her skintones and hair!
Oh man, thank you so much for your comment! I was worried about Babs's red hair, so I'm glad it turned out well! Thank you again!
This is AMAZING. I love the eyes. ;; They look VERY realistic. I love portraits too, I feel you on that bit. XD
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.
