My first African American heroine for my DC Cover Girls statue series. I worked with the team at DC to come up with this new costume and hairstyle for her. The first prototype was displayed at SDCC 2014. Hope you like it!
I always admire artist that can do more than just "pink or white" skin races and do them well. There's color all over the world, I wish more artist would try them out too! I think it shows true skill if an artist can nail down every skin tone from white to the darkest of browns, without muddying them or being too "general" about it. the same with features, I like when an artist makes it apparent that someone is a certain race but they don't do it by making them the ugly stereotypical version of that race. I guess what I am saying is that clean, nice representations of all races in art work really makes a piece great.
*If anyone is offended by my opinion, sorry but I mean no harm. I love all colors, but unfortunately there seems to be a lack of them in art recently...
THIS IS TREMENDOUS. I HAVE SEEN AND LIKED A LOT OF DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF VIXEN, BUT THIS VERSION OF THE COSTUME IS THE BEST. I PREFER HER WITH SHORT,CLOSE CUT HAIR,BUT THIS VERSION OF THE BRAIDS IS FANTASTIC. IT REALLY HAS SOME STYLE. I THINK THIS VERSION OF VIXEN COULD EASILY BE TURNED INTO A SERIES THAT WOULD FLY OFF THE COMIC BOOK SHELVES. I KNOW I WOULD BUY IT. MAYBE YOU CAN TALK TO SOME PEOPLE ABOUT THIS. YOU WOULD BE THE ARTIST OF COURSE.
