Bat out of Hell by JakobWestman Bat out of Hell by JakobWestman
Got a request from Rico [link] to do a sketch of Batgirl. I initially had some trouble coming up with something that worked, but then tried using Barbara instead of Batgirl.

Not 100% happy with the colors, and still thinking that it might benefit from a horizon line or some kind of low contrast background. So I might tweak it a bit later. Oh, and the original inks were really small (apprx 6" high), that's why the lines are a bit wobbly.

Let me know what you think!

EDIT 1:
Changed the colors and added a background. Can't believe I didn't take the chance to work with greys and yellows from the beginning. I love that palette and have been looking for a place to use it. And this it feels like the perfect place for it!
Original version can be seen in the step-by-step image here [link]

EDIT 2:
Did a darker stormy sky to add more drama.

Ha! I don't see any wobbly lines! She looks like she stepped out of a Russ Meyer movie but sadly he would never cast her. Hopefully you'll let me make a poster of this!

Haha, that's funny!
I can send you the hires psd if you want. That way you can also see and compare the inks. I made a few minor tweaks compared to the paper original you'll get.

Thanks!

Doing requests/commissions depends on what it is. If it's something I have a natural interest in then sure. If it's not something I care about personally, then probably not. I do so little work so I'd rather do topics that interest me.
