Ivy by JustinCoffee Ivy by JustinCoffee
So, here is my take on Poison Ivy now. I became really attached to this idea in my head. It started when i thought about giving her a crown of thorns. Not sure why, but it seemed like a cool idea. Kinda like a forest messiah of sorts. It ended up kinda morphing into a art nouveau looking piece on accident. I think because of how i did the hair. So i know i am gonna get those comments, ha. It deviated slightly from the style of the last ones, because i felt the black on skin was not working, and especially in the hair it looked bad when i did it. Oh well, hope you like it. I had a lot of fun doing this one. More on the way.

Interesting that this version makes her look more like a nature-based hero than a villainess.

I love this picture, she looks so different but in a good way. It feels like there is a great story behind this that some one should write. You did a great job on this.

I think the figure still matches very nicely with the others, Justin, despite the lack of blacks in the hair and skin. Bravo to you for being willing to break with your convention as needed. Really, if anything, it's the lack of halftone effect in the background that stands out to me, not the figure itself. In any case, well done, sir ... a great collection, to be sure.

Thank you very much Jon. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Yeah I think i overused that halftone, ha. And i felt this one was something i actually wanted to make some sort of bg for. I had more branches and stuff in the corner, but it was just cluttering things up. Gonna try and keep these going. Have sketches for a bunch more characters.
