The "foundation" of this painting has 2 years ago.
I did the drawing and the first coat, but it pretty much $ucked; Starfire having some kind of gold flesh, it was really weird to paint; and I decided to leave this stuff for the day I would like to come back on it :lol:
(hint: and if you have no deadlines behind you, I highly recommand to do that when you're at the point you can't do anything good anymore on your work anymore )

Then, I continued this painting around 6 months ago; worked on it some weeks... not that much.... And finished it a few hours ago !

Far away from beeing my best stuff; but close enought to be one of the painting that took me the longest time!

My first goal was to paint jean grey as the phoenix, but I already drew/painted her like 4/5 times, so I switched my choice for Starfire, as I still get people complaining about the fact she's not on the DC WOMEN pic ;)

(roh...bad boy ! not good!!! )

I don't like this ubër boring character, and I didn't change my opinion about her.
But now Starfire's lovers will stop asking me to draw her , right ? :rofl:

the drawing itself beeing around 2 years old, there's probably antomy mistakes. apologizes :p

-Acrylics on canvas paper ,60 x 47cm / 18,6"x 23,8"
-airbrush & classical brush.
-marker and watercolorable pencils.
-colored inks.

Starfire is ©DC comics

Wow! I almost didn't recognize her if it wasn't for her her glowing green eyes. If that Teen Titan Starfire can be redesigned as a sexy adult, I wonder what Princess Camille (from Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland) will look like (she's a pretty redhead too!)

but THAT is starfire original design from the comics.
the ones from the cartoons, is an horrible re-take that is out of purpose from the original character !

OK, so she had an original comic design, my bad. I wasn't familiar with the comics; I first saw her character in that Teen Titans cartoon series, and that's how I came to know her character.

For a character you don't like, you sure did do a good job.
