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.
