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.
This version of poison Ivy is beautiful.
This looks great!
looks sorta tarot-card-ey. good work!
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.
Thank you for the very nice comment! I really appreciate it. I was really attached to this concept for some reason. And it's nice to hear kind words like this regarding it
she looks very sexy and elegant!
It looks like it could be a tarot card! Beautiful!!!
Amazing! It looks like Mucha's pictures! And that's a compliment!
is she a kind of jesus christ? haha just kidding
Ha, i suppose. The idea was she was some sort of forest hippie messiah.
wonderfully sexy stuff
Wow. Awesome use of solid colors with no blending. There's a lot to be learned from a piece like this!
gorgeous layout and color work!
Very nice design and colouring
Awesome piece. Well done.
I love your interpretation of Ivy! What a dame!
This is really good! I love the colors :]
Wow! Love the crown of thorns and her martyr-like-saintly expression (haha hard to describe..) But this looks amazing!
Thank you very much Tracy! I am glad you like that idea, ha. It was the first thing i thought of for some reason.
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.
amazing, statuesque and wonderful. love the border. THE BEST!
kinda reminds me of a clow card from card captors nicely done
