Working (It) Out With Batgirl

Thursday's theme on Delineation Daily was to redesign Batgirl's suit.  I figured this would be a great chance to get some good drawing time in on the female form.  Little did I know that this theme would torment me for the next two days.


The drawing above was my first attempt.  I had some fun with the suit and experimented with a more cartoony style, but it just wasn't kicking me in the had no punch.  Plus I felt like I could design an even better suit for Miss. Gordon.  So, I decided to try again.  

My second attempt was this more youthful, street clothes wearing Batgirl.  I've been trying to figure out just what has been bothering me about this drawing and I think I have finally figured it out...the face.  It's so expressionless, I think this drawing would really shine if I go back and rework the face.  There was still something missing though, it all still just seemed to stiff.  So I went back to the beginning...

...and I just started to scribble and sketch and make a mess on the page.  I put all thought of costume and detail out of my mind and just tried to focus on motion and movement.  I really started to like what I had put down and moved on to tightening this pose up a bit.  Eventually that led me to...

...THIS!  This I was happy with.  It's not a redesign of Batgirl's costume or anything, but it's simple, it moves, and it has a lot of potential to become a finished drawing.  I really enjoyed the process I went through with these Batgirl drawings and I learned a great deal while working out the problems I was having.

Little Frank.

My submission for Delineation Daily.  I have really been enjoying and studying the work of Skottie Young lately and I infused some of my favorite bits of his work into this pic.  I am really really enjoying my new brush pens.

Branding Yourself Can Be Painful.

I have been selling more and more of my work lately, I have been picking up freelance jobs and working on commissions.  I couldn't be happier about that.  Now that I am sending out invoices and passing out business cards I figured I need a logo of some sorts.  So here is one of the logo ideas that I have been working on, it's a play off of my signature B! that I sign my work with.

Riddle Me This Riddle Me Fat...

I think that it's funny that the Riddler is always portrayed as a thin lean character.  This is a man that sits around all day creating and solving riddles and puzzles.  I don't think he gets out much.

El Zorro

Zorro is by far my favorite fictional character.  I have so many fond childhood memories of watching Zorro on the Family Channel with my Grandma, dressing up as Zorro and playing in the backyard for hours, and drawing Zorro constantly.  My mom was never too happy about all the Z's I carved into my bedroom furniture but I had more important things to think about at that age than home decor.

B/W version of my Zorro pic.

Some Zorro warm ups...

...and a picture of Zorro that I drew when I was 10.

Slimer and his peep

If I had to pick one cartoon that defined my early child hood it would definitely be Ghostbusters.
