Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) by Gene Gonzales

Batgirl © DC Comics

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.

Ink on 9" x 12" Strathmore Bristol Board


  1. Excellent one Gene. Love that you kept her mask off.

  2. Great job Gene. love the brushy style of the inks.

  3. Thanks Spazzy!

    Thanks LJ. I wanted to do her face, not that mask. I might take another shot at her as Black Bat. I think that's what she's called.

    Thanks Joe! I haven't done dry brush work in a while. Fun stuff.
