Starling by mcguan Starling by mcguan
Sweet Fancy Moses, it's been awhile since I posted. You guys don't want to hear about the hardware/software issues that come with upgrading your entire system and all that and the other stuff, do you? Pretty much just "shut up and get to the art, Shawn" then? I wholeheartedly agree.

Appropriate that my last piece on dA was of Lady Blackhawk and my first piece back is Starling, a character more or less created to fit the DC New 52's Zinda Blake-shaped hole (Starling's co-creator Duane Swierczynski is quoted about that in this interview: [link] The relative quote being this: [link] ).

Anyway, I had a Twitter friend recommend the "Birds of Prey" relaunch, and it's really good stuff. Starling is by far the scene-stealer. I'm liking the way Swierczynski writes her and I LOVE the character's design. But whoever decided to create an action-oriented character with a sleeve of tattoos is just a glutton for punishment.

Created with PITT pens and Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator CS 5.5.

Really nice job. Actually, fantastic job! She's my favorite Birds Of Prey character and you drew her perfectly.

Ever since I've been reading the new 52 Birds of Prey, I just love B.C and Starling! :)

Starling is pretty cool. I hope she makes a lasting impression in the whole DC line.

Me too! If DC gets rid of her or puts her with another team than Birds of Prey, I'm gonna be upset and probably throw a chair at my window. LOL! I'm jk, but nah I would be disappointed. Starling is that chick that can be like a tomboy, but be a chick that you wanna hangout with because she's so cool in keeping it real! lol
