Poison Ivy



Here's a scan of another one of these color sketches, this time of Poison Ivy. Well, it really could be any red-haired nature girl, but the foliage is poison ivy, so I figure that's enough. Ivy was actually the first one I did, followed by a Scarlet Witch, and then the Red Sonja. Apparently, I like red.

Also posted is a scan of the Red Sonja, as requested in the comments. I couldn't quite capture the subtleties of the original with my scanner, which I now realize is not great at color images. I'll have to upgrade if I keep working in color. Damn.

Now that I am getting a little more comfortable with my materials, I plan on tackling some more involved subjects and more refined drawings. We'll see what happens.

I'll post the Scarlet Witch once I get a good scan.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Nice - you'd be a natural for watercolour. :)

Amazing. Love the colors of the first one. The Contrast between the red, green and blue is fantastic.

I love Sonja's expression here, plus the wild hair.

Beautiful work Josh, the paint fits your style so well! I can't wait to see the Scarlet piece.

Okay, now I'm convinced, get rid of your computer, these are great. They both have a kind of warmth that is totally lost with most digital art.

These are beautiful! I would gladly purchase a print of either. And the colors on that Ivy are amazing, you should definitely keep this going.

Brandon has a scanner that he like to tote around with him to the cons. Ask him how it handles colors.

I love how you did Sonja's hair, it's silly but it kinda looks like jelly to me and I wanna touch it!
