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!
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
