Batgirl a la nouveau by OlgaUlanova Batgirl a la nouveau by OlgaUlanova
Barbara Gordon as Batgirl, à la nouveau


Because of a hook-up through my super awesome godfather, I got to wear a "Barbara Gordon" badge at New York Comicon last month. Needless to say I was tickled pink about that. :D

I met a lot of people while I was at Heroes this last weekend and some of them told me about their comic art fan collections. What was the chances that I would run into the guy that actually has this piece! And thanks again for my own Black Widow which I hope to see here soon!

There's something so wistful about her expression. I thought I had this faved but evidently not! It's been remedied quickly :)

The art nouveau styling for this piece is really excellent. It seems to suit the character well, and I love the way her hair is flowing. :)

I think I've mentioned this before, but I absolutely love the way you draw and paint hair. It always looks so fantastic!

And I must say this: I also love the fact that your rendition of Batgirl looks like a real woman. Often times women in comic books are exaggerated to one extreme or the other, and I always appreciate artists who have a more realistic approach for a change. c:

OlgaUlanova Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
wow, thank you so much for the thoughtful comment!

I feel that my work still lacks dynamics, and hair is the one area where I can cut loose and make it do unrealistic things. ^_^ It's always fun to draw.

And the comment about her looking like a real woman - best compliment I could ever want. Thank you.

that means so much, Adam. ^__^ thank you! It feels incredible to be drawing again. Don't know why I stayed away as long as I did.

(and if you ever feel like it, I'm always open for critique. I'm tuff, I can take it. ^_~)

I tried really hard to come up with an answer that would not question you (again), and decided the best way to go is not to question you on this. hahahaha! :D

Dustin's your Godfather? cool!

Anyway this piece really sticks out. I've been toying with Nouveau and am looking into deco. This almost looks like the combo of the two I want to hit :) Great piece!

OlgaUlanova Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
A great inspiration for that period is art nouveau stained glass windows. They're right on the cusp of deco, but still retain some fluid lines.

and yeah, Dustin's my godfather like in the movie, not like... an actual godfather. LOL
