Fan-arting my own character in my own way. Personal work, 2014

Can this be a real t-shirt that I can wear?

I still have a massive HeroesCon recap blog post in the works, but considering the comics news today, I wanted to share this amazing commission that Babs Tarr drew for me at HeroesCon

Since Babs was so busy at the con all weekend, I just handed her my sketchbook on Saturday and asked for a commission of Jem, but only if she wasn’t too bombarded with work. When I stopped by her table on Sunday, she surprised me with an illustration of me as Batgirl/Batmangirl and I almost started tearing up on the spot. Thank you so much, Babs - I really can’t wait to see you work your magic on the new Batgirl series this fall.

P.S. Also, thank you, Jordan, for coloring me in

Barbara Gordon
HeroesCon 2014 sketch
Done for the amazing and talented and handsome Rico Renzi.  I had free reign to do whatever I wanted, so I decided to do a fashionization so I can stand out amongst all his other Batgirls.  

YES.

I figured since I did the first two, I should round these out by doing the third most prominent (but my least favorite) of the Dazzler outfits- pink hair+leather midriff strips (what are those).
For the final incarnation she had to go full Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj realness. 100% modern pop queen. I also tossed out the traditional mic for the pop singer hidden mic.

Someone please put Erica Henderson on a Dazzler book ASAP ☆

LITTLE GIRLS ARE BETTER AT DESIGNING SUPERHEROES THAN YOU, SAYS ALEXANDRIA LAW
By Betty Felon
In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.

Here’s my Project Rooftop entry! I was thinking kind of a Prince/Beyonce sort of thing. Wanted her to be a little more casual and out there because that’s what I liked so much about the original Draw Batgirl Meme.

After I submitted that I did a few more that were more functional and the latter was the one of that bunch that I liked enough to finish. Looked at a lot of GCPD swat stuff from the Nolan films and tried to fit the bat logo in there. Hope you like ‘em!

My wardrobe will never be complete until I own a gold Bat-chain belt and a navy Bat-scalloped cloak.

My take on Super Girl! It was fun to draw her :D
Happy Saturday everyone!!

I’ve never been crazy about Linda Danvers’ signature Supergirl digs, but her crop top ringer tee looks pretty cute when styled with a pleated skirt and suspenders.

Ant Lucia Gives the Women of DC Comics a Retro Makeover for ‘Bombshells’ Prints

By Betty Felon

Tapping into the popular DC Bombshells statues line from DC Collectibles, QMx has released a set of prints of Ant Lucia’s conceptual artwork featuring DC’s favorite heroines and villainesses in the style of mid-century pin-ups. Lucia channels Alberto Vargas’ trademark pin-up style while capturing the strength and beauty of the likes of Wonder Woman, Catwoman, et al; and the result is a fun, sexy, and chic makeover of DC’s finest. This artwork will be also used for DC Bombshell-themed variant covers for DC’s current series in June 2014.

Ever since the release of the DC Bombshells Supergirl statue last year, Lucia’s redesigns have been a hit with collectors and cosplayers alike, with the line of statues quickly expanding and with fans emulating these stylishly retro makeovers of Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and more.
