Here we go, onto the next and another squeaker for me in the rear view mirror... Thanks for the votes, and I apologize in advance if I don't get this right. My first Public domain contest.

I chose The Black Cat so I guess its about redesigning the costume for her.

Deadline is on the 29th at midnight central time.

@wildcats25: C'mon mister, lets see what you got. Your faces have really started to shine lately! Looking forward to your entry!

@armiv2: It would be great if we could still buy comics that cheap, sadly for the creative guys behind them, they would be making pennies for their hard work.

@iceprince_x: I wouldn't be surprised if John Byrne had not taken from this character bits and pieces to create Kitty. He liked reworking and drawing characters from his youth, like we all do. :)

@ramsillustrations: Mmm, that is the major downside to that. I suppose $4.67 ain't too bad.

Gosh...this design is tricky for me.

@godofart:

Interesting use of color, I can see you keep putting in the effort. Good work Jesse!

I actually came up with something.

If the quality looks a little suckier than normal, it is because I followed my teacher's advice on not changing the DPI settings on scanners, as apparently it is pointless.

I respectfully disagree, but I also digress.

@armiv2: The Rebel in you! Heh....Good entry buddy nice clean scan lines!

@armiv2: The Rebel in you! Heh....Good entry buddy nice clean scan lines!

Heh-heh, thanks. The lines are only so clean though as I edited them. They originally came in all groggy and junk. Tried to clean it up as quickly as I could, though it ain't cintiq level clean.

@armiv2: Yes but your design came out nice and clean and you did a good job doing so! :)

Here my morning warmup, before proceeding with my present project. My entry for this contest.

@wildcats25:

I ink both traditionally and digitally, the last couple of years for the most part digitally. This last entry was digital...

I went and gave my entry a kinda quick-ish color job. Also enhanced some of the lines.

#31 Edited by GODofART (411 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow you guys this is going to be another close match! So much talent on this website! :D
