Black Cat plays by ChristopherStevens Black Cat plays by ChristopherStevens
Black Cat's pretty fun to work on. Havent gotten the hang of shiny leather yet, but I enjoy doing white hair for some reason and Im a fan of this kind of mask. If these guys used spirit gum or some other kind of glue to hold those masks on, you'd think they'd get nasty rashes after a while. Just a random thought.

The client asked for a Spider-Man element, so I added the mask. The hand reaching up to grab her was a bit of a last minute add, but I'm ok with it.

Cool Copics, Warm and cool prismacolors with Dr. Martin white paint on vellum bristol board

Really well done. This is a beautiful piece of work however I will note that there is one element that strikes me as a bit off: Her Chin seems a bit too squarish to me.

Love the way you did her hair here. It's almost like a cape billowing in the wind.
It's inspiring to see work of this caliber done traditionally as well, in certain fields it's become something of a rarity.

Thanks, Karl. Flys only live for a day or so. You'd be dead before I finished. Maybe one day I'll try to set up one of those time lapse videos.

That would be awesome. I love looking at art and stumbled onto comicartfan.com I saw a lot more of your work on there I've never seen here on DA. I even saw a pic of you. Lol. Anyways, I really wanna get on your commission list again. I got a piece done before, but I'd sure love a full size.....something! Lol please let me know.

Seriously, this is incredible. I have my copic markers, but I'm too afraid to use it, cuz it's so expensive. Warm markers for skin tone, right? Gah! I must draw comics like this someday. It's a BEAUTIFUL style.

Bah, you have to break that mentality. I know where you're coming from, but the only way to see what you can do with those babies is to break them out and go for it. Start with small images to keep the ink usage to a minimum if you need to. Take the plunge.

Thanks for the kind words!

The secret to holding the mask on is tiny magnetic implants steathfully hidden below the surface of the lovely skin and naturally corresponding reverse polarity magnets in the mask for a secure hold - and viola! - the trick she is done - BTW delightful and sophisticated work of art ~:0) VivaChas!
