I'm kind of torn about Batgirl's new costume. For one thing it's an attempt at making an outfit that looks more practical while (ironically) being less functional than her previous spandex-with-kevlar-plating outfit, specifically because it contains a leather jacket. Leather jackets--in my experience, having worn one frequently--have a way of restricting arm movement to a point where, while practical for everyday movement and motorcycle riding, impedes the wearer in any situation where the arms need to be held up; the rest of the jacket gets pulled up along with the arms, which is especially difficult if the jacket isn't open. Considering Batgirl frequently needs to climb around, perform acrobatic maneuvers, and grapple vertically upward, this functional disadvantage is something I can't shut my brain off to. I'm unaware of any variety of leather that wouldn't have this problem, and from what I understand, Barbara's new costume is assembled from  items found at vintage shops.

On the other hand, aesthetically, giving Barbara a less high-tech and more "street vigilante" look is fitting for the character, and meets a nice middle ground between traditional spandex costume looks and a more modern, clothing-style-oriented look that ultimately makes her appear more credible as both a female superheroine (because that was undoubtedly the chief concern with the design change) and as a serious vigilante-type hero in general, while visually distancing her from Batman. I just wish they'd adjust/elaborate on that jacket in some way that makes it more believable for Barbara to do the kinds of things Batgirl has to do to be Batgirl.

Gotta admit, I joined this site to follow you, your depiction of Batgirl has got to be my favorite

I like how you represent them, I see A LOT of others making them have these humongous breasts, which ruins the rest of the look for me. But these are just perfect & your artwork is amazing. Tks for sharing with us.

If you're a vigilante are you really serving justice or self vengeance?

I love these Justice magazine covers that you've created.

It's lovely art. He can keep his thoughts to himself. I also have no respect for a person who literally finds everything "sexy" (note: Not always meant for sexual appeal) on a teen-and-preteen-friendly website and comments only his disgusting thoughts. Really, this website is for art, not for people simply wanting to get off. He could have said anything positive about the piece other than "I want to pull her zipper down". Like what the heck.

one can only aspire to have the talent that you have im less than a year into digital media and wow... truly an inspiration to keep growing!

Great piece! Is it just me,or does she has some Angelia Jolie face resemblance? (at least the eyes :D)

Useless character.

The color scheme is great but the boots just throw me off the entire outfit. I understand the need for change for a younger audience, but this Hipster phase will come & go. It's a fad and fads never last. The only real way for D.C. to know is if they test so this doesn't hurt them either way. We'll see how it works out. I've been a longtime aficionado & I just recently completed a Batman poster myself. If you'd like you can check it here: Thanks for the inspiration, Artgerm.

Same for me, too. I love the new suit, but I hate the boots.

Her baddest look yet!
SweetestRevenge2734 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
i personally think that she should have a more leaping-off-a-building-with-cape-flying kind of pose, because while the way you drew the motions are really nice, her pose is a bit odd. but otherwise, i really love the colors and the lines.

I love the pose. It really describes a very upbeat personality. 
spider-man2013 Featured By Owner Edited Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Any chance you could do some Marvel ladies on Justice mag? Or maybe a new title of magazine? That would be sooooo cool. All you've done that I can see is DC girls. Otherwise, really great work as always.

Shulkie Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014
Gorgeous outfit!! I like the black down the pant sides and belt design. I kinda has the Stephanie Brown look somewhat mixed with Barbara's. Gorgeous coloring and vibrancy. Pretty cool how you blurred the background and the lower cover part and had nice focus on her upper body and facial detail.
Very beautifully done:love:
pyradragon Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
Her new costume is pretty cool. It looks real, like something you can put together yourself. Nods to creature. 
The drawing looks superb and the colouring for the creases and highlights makes it  more 3D. Her face is detailed and looks real.
Midas2004 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014
I have never liked this costume before now.
x---whatsername---x Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  Student General Artist
the new outfit is a great jump in the right direction for her, and hopefully many more female (and male) characters to come! great work as always! :)
Dawnelldo1 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014
I hate the new costume, but you make it look great.

when I saw that Batgirl was getting a new look, I was REALLY disappointed, but you've made it look amazing

great work!!! love it
nelson-net Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
That's a truly leap of fashion. I'm sure that would become into a realistic trend in comic books and comic book movies... and that's something good (in fact, that's not something new, just take a look of the Fox/Marvel movies).

is it just me or does anyone else realize that the zipper on her jacket isn''t going over her BAT-LOGO(hehe)
Esurio Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014
Yeah, it bugged me too but it seems like that's just this particular artist's mistake (mistake being a harsh word when this piece of artwork is otherwise amazing). If you look at official pictures of this new design you can see the zipper running through the logo.
DAgirator Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yesh yes
Kai-Dragoness Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
