Batgirl has recently gotten a redesign of her costume that has proven to be a hit around the internet. There has been numerous pictures made featuring her new look, so I decided to give it a shot too.
I really like her new jacket design instead of the traditional spandex look or worse, super plated armor. Gag. It is a lot of fun drawing her jacket because of all of the line creases and whatnot. Incidentally, the other features of her costume that has also been getting a lot of attention is the button snap cape fasteners and her combat boots. I actually neglected drawing combat boots. There is no real reason why, it was just a personal design choice made by me.
Batgirl was drawn with a .07 mm tip G2 gel pen, which is okay since I wanted the sketchy jagged look for her jacket, but for smooth lines it kinda sucks. Well that is not necessarily true, it is just in consistent for smooth lines. I don't know if it will be smooth or if I need to retrace my lines a couple of times to make it dark enough. It is much better to just use a Staedtler art pen, which I used the .01 mm tip to draw in the finer details, like the eyes or small shadings. I then blacked out everything with a fat tip Sharpie marker. Finally, to make the picture slightly cooler, I took out some of my lines on the under part of her body with a White Out pen. This implies that the light source is coming below her.
