Phoenix by Gene Gonzales

I couldn't decide which incarnation of Phoenix to do so I did two of them. Poor Scott doesn't know what's about to hit him.

we're back on track this week with Marvel's Phoenix as our theme. Here's mine. (which may or may not have been an unpicked up commission from Megacon ;))

We interrupt your regularly scheduled art post...

If you are here to see this weeks subject of Phoenix, Joe and I would like to apologize. Because of workloads, business travel, commissions and preparing for this weekend's MegaCon, neither of us had the chance to finish anything for this weeks post. Just a perfect storm of events and work. We will be back next week with our rendition of Phoenix. I hope you will join us.

Now if you came here to read excuses from a couple of artists who didn't finish the art they said they would...welcome! :)

We now return you to your regular internet experience.

Next Week's Subject: Phoenix

Gene and I decided for next week it would be Marvel's Phoenix (any costume). And no, it's not just because I want to paint another red head...oh wait, that probably is the reason. ;) see you next wednesday!

Poison Ivy by Gene Gonzales

My take on Poison Ivy and a "friend". I had considered doing the current costume but not this time. It really didn't work with the feel of this piece.

Ivy is Ebay bound tonight.

Batgirl by Joe Pekar

I went with my favorite version of batgirl. the gray/blue costume. and because she's a redhead. ;)

Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) by Gene Gonzales

I had started working on a Barbara Gordon Batgirl piece for this weeks theme, but after seeing all the love for the Cassandra Cain Batgirl out there in the Twitterverse, I changed my mind. I will probably still do the Babs version someday. This piece was done almost exclusively with brushes (after pencils of course). I haven't worked like this in a while so it was fun to do.
