Catwoman 48 cover.

I miss doing CATWOMAN covers. I wanted to do more like this, in the murky film noir setting of Gotham City and its environs. I kinda like how Selina is disappearing into the shadows, and you can only tel her from from her leathery highlights.

On this one, Selina is actually witnessing a doppleganger of herself get shot, off-panel (it's OK; its a setup she concocted, with the doppleganger's aid, to fake her death). We didn't want to give away the end of the issue, but we knew it was the Big Moment and should be on the cover.

Penicl and ink on Strathmore illustration board, with Photoshop CS2 colors.

Great piece. Catwoman was always one of my favorite characters. I love how you blended her into the shadow and still the few light spots are enough to indicate her body.

never talk about tumblr, its a realy weird site, and rebloging isnt a hobby, altho my short visit to it proved that geting the most followers is easy if you just post naked women all day every day. so i left

DC let you get away with drawing nipples on a cover?

I think the thing I like the most about your cat woman is how much she looks Audry Hepburn.

I like the way you draw Catwoman, and her face. The way you make her face look makes her interesting. awesome pictures!
