Catwoman by theangryfish Catwoman by theangryfish
This is pretty much done now. It took around six to seven hours all up using HB and 6B graphite pencils on A4 printer paper. I'll have to get some better paper as the shading picked up some of the paper texture on the background. I think this turned out pretty well, aside from the background, but it was fairly easy as far as portraits go, with most of it being either black or white, and the lack of hair made it easier too.
I think this one is going to cost me, I really should have been studying tonight....
Catwoman is copyright of DC comics, I suppose.

This is a drawing? Wow! This is SO inspiring! What a brilliant job you did!
I'll have to refer back to this work when I become discouraged. It definitely carries a charge, it makes me want to draw right now. :)
And who would've thought of Christina Ricci as Catwoman? Again, brilliant!

I thought this was a photo when I clicked on it. But it's not. It's extremely amazing and takes my hero to a new level. Also, I have that mask and you drew it perfect. I love this.

Is this life serious, that is amazing!! "Only" took you 6 or 7 hours...would of taken me a least a month to make something look half way decent, lol. I'm really amazed. I especially love the eyes, something about drawn eyes really gets my attention.

this is excellent,very expressive..and even though it can be seen in some of the darker areas..I think the texture adds to the piece,rather than detracts from it:)
