Envy by DoodleLyle Envy by DoodleLyle
This is yet another piece drawn in color pencil on two sides of UC-4 drafting media. It kind of suggests a Poison Ivy type character, but really its based on a photo of Diana Dors (no, not Marilyn Monroe) who appeared on an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" entitled "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (no, not the Mickey Mouse cartoon).

While I was really pleased with how the original turned out (particularly the texture of the background), it was a huge pain to scan. I never could get the scan to look like the original. This image is actually a combination of several scans and manipulations in Photoshop--and it's still only an approximation of the beauty of the original piece.

Not officially, no.  But if you want to think of her as Ivy, rather than Envy that's okay.  Just don't tell DC lawyers ;)

She just looks so much like Poison Ivy.

Yes, well--she started out much like Ivy as one of my major patrons loves Poison Ivy.  But she was much too good a drawing to have to hassle with DC lawyers over (or my own conscience).  So she's "Envy" now.  ;)
