Bats, Octopi and Spirals

Maybe I should be making individual posts for each drawing that I do....

...nah....that ain't happening.

A little while ago, I started all of this ethnicity and gender flip characters with my African American Batgirl. I wasn't too much of a fan of that picture, so I redid it....and there's still some parts of this I don't like. I think I may have to revisit it one more time to get things right.

The next drawing is of Ursula from Disney's The Little Mermaid. I wanted to draw her as younger and sexier....but umm...apparently some people have issues with Ursula being sexy. I say, get over it and live with it. You know she was stuntin' on them young mermaids under the sea.

And last but not least, is an African American ethnicity flip of Spiral from the X-Men universe. I used to love this character on the cartoon (even though she was only in like 3 episodes). I knew that many people weren't really familiar with her...but basically, if you weren't in any of the X-Men movies, the general public pretty much weren't familiar with you. So, she needs some shine. And this one is by far my favorite, even though there's really no background at all to speak of.

I think that I even outdid my personal best by including 4 different light sources. Yeah...almost became too much to handle.

Until next time!

Without Wax,

You are so talented! I hope you make it big one day (hey, I'm an aspiring writer trying to get published, ever think of doing cover art for novels? just a thought)
