Poison is Ivy by ChristopherStevens Poison is Ivy by ChristopherStevens
I dont have much to say about this one. I like drawing Ivy and was happy to do another one for a sweet gal. The little whippy vine things at the bottom were improvised late in the process. I'm not sure if it works or not, but I dont hate it.

Prismacolor cool and warm greys, white watercolor on vellum bristol board

Poison IvyŠ DC Comics

I just carefully choose the shades and saturate the areas plenty. The markers take care of the rest.

I love how the swirl shapes reappear throughout the piece...over all design, the leaves, her hair, the whips at the bottom (which do work great!). Really nice.

Awesome stuff! You have a flair for creating great motion in your pieces. What size do you work at for these pieces? You pack in the details so well, especially the textures on the bark.

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
Thanks! I do all these at 11 by 17. That's a pretty good size to get all the detail you need, I'd actually prefer to go smaller. Markers a pain at bigger sizes, but collectors like the bigger sizes.

Awesome ivy motives here and there- on the wrists and breasts in particular, aslo love how your colours changes from dark to light where ornaments overlap, your work looks like a glass-staining sometimes :)
