Batgirl's Struggle by RobertDanielRyan Batgirl's Struggle by RobertDanielRyan
I think I might re-do this!!!!??? 

Thoughts.....

This is a picture I have wanted to do for a while, but was never able to get it to look right. Well one night I sat down and until about 3 in the morning just sketched out different layouts until I found one I liked. I think in the end it's pretty effective. 

Here's the original idea I drew a while back:

I honestly love this piece of work, me being a batman/bat woman fan myself , but i could never get the right feel to the drawing of them, but my rates are.

Vision- I see what your going for but id like to see the face in the back a little more.. cant tell who it is.4/5

Originality- I've seen comic-like art before but nothing like this, well done.5/5

Technique- I like what you did with the over laying and the TEXT.5/5

Impact- Id Highly Enjoy to see more of your art in the future.
5/5
Overall Great piece my friend.

Thanks Angela! What about it do you like more? I like them both, I just like the Joker's face a lot more in the updated one...

Absolutely! I want to see this one colored so bad but I am a novice at coloring to put it nicely haha. Feel free. Whenever you are ready just let me know and I will send a high res one without the watermark. :)

Excellent work! The composition looks great, and the simple line technique is incredibly effective here. I'd love to see a colored version of this someday.

Hey thanks so much! I worked really hard on this piece so I am glad it shows. Trust me I want to see a colored version too really badly, I am just not very good at coloring, so I am hoping one day someone will want to color it for me haha

I love this piece - it's very emotional - but not without hope. I think Babs misses her life as Batgirl, sometimes wishes things could be different, but she's the type to move forward. I like how Batgirl is breaking up the Joker. Somehow, it says that he didn't win.

This is just too amazing. This is actually one of the most amazing works I've seen, not only on Deviant, but even those in my sketch book from Cons.

Truly truly amazing.

Wow, thank you so much! I worked a ton on this, so I'm thrilled that you like it so much! I looooove Batgirl and Oracle so I would never want to do something with her half assed. This is actually going to be the cover to a Birds of Prey comic I am working on for fun, keep an eye out if you are interested!

You know I am trying to figure out the answer to your question myself haha. I'm not a professional (yet) so I can't really say for sure. I do know that some good ways to get your art out there are things like portfolio reviews at comic conventions. As far as developing your skills, just a ton of practice and patience haha.

Did you go to school to learn that art and what about the supplies lol? And can you critique come of my stuff if you got time? :)

RobertDanielRyan Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2007
I started taking art classes in High School. Before that I was mostly self taught. But art classes have helped me tremendously. The supplies thing is kind of tricky, you just kind of have to see what works for you by trying different products out. A good way to start is by getting books on how to draw comic book art. Here is a link to a book that really helped me:

Thanks! Lol my only guides are How to Draw the Marvel Way and a DC Penciling book. I learn a lot from them though! :)

RobertDanielRyan Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2007
Definately, they are a great help. Also just studying your favorite artists and looking at how they draw can be a good help too. I'm not saying to cope their work, but to study their technique. That helped me a TON when I was starting out. I hope some of that helps!

I love the perspective, it shows her inner struggles, yet it seems she wouldn't take it back for a second, hence the smile on her face as Batgirl. :clap: Well done.
