The Blackbat by JenZee The Blackbat by JenZee
For those of you who are interested, there are a couple alt versions of this piece (I was indecisive) as well as an early version of it on my blog here!: [link]

Doodle of TWO Evenings! I started this as just an evening sketch, but ended up wanting to take it a step further, so spent two evenings on it :). I mostly wanted to focus on drawing mindfully - being in control of my subject matter, the colors and form. Too often I allow the art to control me which can result in other, happy creations, but not this time! NOT ON MY WATCH! :batman:


CASSANDRA CAIN LADIES AND GENTS. To be quite honest, I don't love her design - I think the mask is too feminine and generally makes her look like a silly courtesan, and bandages on the OUTSIDE of the Batsuit... well... I know a lot of things don't make a whole lot of sense in the comic-verse, but those just seem a little too FORCED. I won't even ask why she has Catwoman-claws.

WHY THEN DID I DO FANART? To be perversely contrary!? I just love Cassandra Cain... and am hoping that even with the upcoming DC reboot, she gets some storyline-love! Maybe they'll reboot her costume....>_>?

Thanks for looking guys! I hope you like it :).

Wow, looks great. I am actually really fond of her costume, despite all the silly stuff that you've pointed out.

One other thing I have against the wraps: does she wrap those around her arms every time she dons the costume? Seems like a waste of time, while someone's life out there may very well be in danger :P

The way this kind of seemlessly blends from flatter graphical shapes and the really nicely modeled 3d form makes me really like it.

For me, her Batgirl costume was perfect: bad ass & intimidating. Her Blackbat costume is a bit too ridiculous.

I've never seen this costume on her before... Is this from a series or is it your own interpretation? Either way I love it! amazing work :)

Aw man, this is the only redeeming thing I have seen so far of reboot re:ladies. Saw a couple of the new Catwoman pages and I. Cannot. Even.
Alongwith the drastic reduction of ladystaff, idk, but me and my boobies do not feel awfully at home chez DC of late. That said, I dig this like cuh-razy. Particularly loving how even the background is all appropriately snazzy (and of batman icon as SRS FACE for SRS BIZNESS).

Despite the DC redesigns of classic characters (that I'm not too fond of, either) the drawing is awesome :)

I love the coloring technique here, and even if the "legs turning into ribbons" things seems a little odd when thinking about it, it looks so natural within the context of the picture that it's not even really an issue. (Speaking of "issues", especially with that giant logo in the background, this totally looks like it could be the cover for a Cass-centric oneshot. :D ) Great job!
