Catwoman by Beth Davis

Ladies in the house-represent!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Batman, favorite character hands down, can beat the shit out of Superman anytime he wants with the kryptonite ring and he is mortal, baby. No superpowers.

It was a decision between Harley Quinn and Catwoman. I love them both equally but I had more fun with the Catwoman sketches. Plus, she is an interesting "villain". She starts out bad but tries to be good. She really is her own worst enemy-more than Batmans'.

Tried something new here. Arm was feeling wobbly and didn't feel like going through 3-4 versions of inked drawings (which I tend to do, perfectionist to a fault. Plus, I was really digging the linework), so I drew it in reverse and inverted the colors in Photoshop rather than colored in everything with graphite. There are a few spots (face, illuminated arm) where I left them alone to pull some light in. The light source is supposed to be the reflected light off the pedestal so hitting her in the face and radiating outward. The forearm is in front of it, so it is silhouetted, but that back arm seems like she's got her sleeve rolled up. Couldn't figure out what to do with it-wasn't sure how it would turn out. I think I should play with this idea more, make it work for me.

My, I'm chatty tonight! Going away now.

  2. That looks awesome Beth...classic Catwoman image. Really like what you did with the light. The Egyptian style cat was a nice touch too.

  3. You totally kicked my butt :) ! I was just about to do Catwoman, it was between Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. I thought Catwoman would be a much more dynamic-cool-pose character than Poison Ivy or Harley Quinn. No worries, your Catwoman is awesome, LUV the hands / nails! And the cat idol is an excellent touch. The whole work; pose, lighting, figure, scene, more = awesome!

    Superman would kick her butt :D (hahaahaha!)

  4. Thank you, but feel free to do Catwoman if you are feelin it! This is all about personal visions! I'd love to see what you come up with!

  5. and yes superman could totally liquidize catwoman :)

  6. Beth you are too kind :) . I was very glad to see your enthusiasm for Catwoman kick'n Superman's butt. Please feel free to smack me down whenever I say something lippy. I'm working on a Harley Quinn, but Thank You for the green light on Catwoman, -much appreciated (I'm guessing you'll be able tell how it could have worked for Catwoman, or Harley Quinn). Your Catwoman is excellent!
