I'm pretty happy with the result. It's the first time I've ever worked on bristol board instead of normal printer paper, and the bristol took my pencil and ink quite happily.

Thanks! It's nothing compared to some of the others, though. *boggle*

I've just been sitting here looking at Batgirls for the last half hour...

Whoa... I'm afraid I was immediately struck by the awesome background, but then I realized that your pose and proportioning kick my ass. :-)

Yeah, I finished up the background and then went "wait, this makes the colored lineart look like crap." So that's why she's shaded.

Thanks!

Whee, thanks! The moon actually is really easy. I've discovered some nifty techniques for making stuff glow like that - I should post some tutorials sometime.

Nice work, Darth!

Alas, I'm in that tragic twilight zone between Aki and the real artists, and so don't have anything actually worth putting up (or really even breaking out the brush pens for).

If you say so. Quality isn't a barrier, though. I've seen Batgirls of all levels, from mediocre tossed-off sketches to ones that made me briefly ponder cutting my hands of, they were so gorgeous.

Thanks!

I regret not putting more time into my batgirl now. But being very close to the top of the list made me happy.

Thanks! Took me an extra day since I got home late on Thursday and had to finish Friday's comic first...
