Black Canary, Again (Again) by mcguan Black Canary, Again (Again) by mcguan
So I have 71 pieces in my gallery here on dA, and now three of them feature Black Canary? That's like.... hold on a second - OK, carry the one, add that - that's like 84% of my total output!

Wait. That's... not right. Whatever, "Math" was never my best subject.

So yeah, it's Black Canary again. I realize I just did a piece based on the silver age outfit a few months back, but I was never completely happy with my first attempt at her [link] (hence why I've never uploaded a color version) and decided to redraw the pose. By the time I got around to doing it, the New 52 redesign happened and, well, here we are.

Created with PITT Pens, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS 5.5. The font is "Fundead" by Blambot: [link]

I have TONS of his fonts...more than ComiCraft. I'll buy CC on New Year's Day during the sale.

Ha! I always think "CC Font Sale" whenever New Year's is mentioned.

I may have a problem.

I like the detail and colors you put in Black Canary you did a great job.
The other thing I the sound waves lines for her voice.

Is the Birds of Prey comics series worth getting, do you know?

I actually think the issue this week (tomorrow) is the start of a new arc. Issue #13, I believe?

I'm still not totally sold on it, but it is growing on me. Gradually.

I love her stance and the design of her name in the background.

mcguan Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012
Thanks! I did a couple different versions of the name in the background (because I can never have just one version, I guess).

Fantastic design piece (still firm on this being cover quality work)! Always amazed by your faces and hair in the final colored versions.

Thanks Kojo. I've had trouble with blondes before (in the coloring sense, and in real life ;) ), but I liked how this turned out.

Well, when you do it so well, who's complaining? I dig the halftones on the sound waves.

Awesome. Also one of the better designs to come out of the new 52.

I wasn't sold on the design at first, but it's grown on me - I like how it incorporates all her past looks in a more logical way.

:iconsean-izaakse:
sean-izaakse Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
Yeah I dig it. The only thing I noticed that I like more is the yellow part across her chest wasn't there in the first like, 2 issues and I thought it looked better. I also like the redesign of Katana actually.

:iconmcguan:
mcguan Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
I noticed that too, the missing yellow. I think when I was drawing out this piece and researching the costume (this was drawn awhile back but I didn't get a chance to color it until this week). I dig Katana too. She'll be next as far as Birds of Prey goes - I've done Starling already and should probably move on from BC. ;)
