For this contest I'd like to see everyone's 2099 version of BLACK CANARY.
Deadline is May 14th
Just finished the line work for this one. I plan to give her darker color tights instead of her usual fishnets...I hate drawing fishnets. Plus I think a thick, dark legging kind of thing would be more suited. I gave her thicker boots and the "B" on the jacket could be for either Black Canary or Birds of Prey. Her design was always so simple it was hard to do much with her and not go too crazy. I did have fun with her makeup.
Alrighty, here's mine.
I invisioned her being raised in a government lab as some kind of living weapon. She'd be part of a special program designed by an organization following in the steps of CADMUS. She'd be one of many until somebody behind the scenes cuts her strings.
Here's the colored version.
Wasn't sure if i was gonna enter since i've been entering so many things, but i couldn't resist! =)
Name: Scarlet Harper
Hair color: Copper red.
Eye color: Pale Green.
Scars: Scars all around her mouth and lower face.
Age: Late 20's/early 30's?
Gear: Face mask (which she needs in order to: breath, speak, sonic scream.)
mini bio(well not so "mini"):
Scarlet Harper had been raised into a normal family (originating back to Roy Harper, being her father).
Her somewhat normal life is turned upside down when at age 16, hunting down her family history and conections.
After paying a visit to her "really elder" grandfather, she steps into the crossfire of an "elder" titans leage, secret meeting in her newly found granfather's basement.
She over hears the "still living" members of the old titans team discussing an assult on the new "Black Canary" said to have been going around killing off all ties to the retired or now solo Justice League members (whom could still be living in this era- like non ageing Superman). Scarlet is instantly engrossed to the discussion, untill the house is hit with a sonic scream! Before Scarlet could even meet her unknown grandfather, or figure out what had even just happened...she found an explosion hitting her from an exploding arrow, shot at her by Roy in mistaking her for the Black Canary intruder! Scarlet sustained massive injurys to her lower face, loosing her voice and ability to breath without machines assistance. Scarlet was stollen away by the rogue Black Canary descendant and saved by the villainess. Scarlet is given a mouth peice to breathe, speak, and use for sonic screams, by the woman, claiming her as her apprentice/hostage. Scarlet over a long absence from home, forgets her family and the life she once knew as weakness and finally after years of hard training and brainwashing becomes the next Black Canary-- taking the now elder daughter of Canarys place. Scarlet goes on to become the most sly villainess of 2099 and is constanting interfearing with Leage and Titan issues, with the guidance of her twisted mentor.
Hope ya like her, i know the bios pretty sad/lame but i just went with the flow.
anyways! Awesome other entries! =)
holy crap there's already killer entries in here, Canary gets a lotta love :)
I'm rather proud of this one ... I tried a few new things technique wise and had a lot of fun ... hope ya'll like it!
Thankyou everyone for the comments!
I took inspiration from High Fashion, Lady GaGa, TRON, Blade Runner and Aeon Flux. I'm glad that those elements were picked up on as well. I tried to make the character a little more vicious feeling, but also reflect a more fragile birdlike quality. It makes her very raptor-like which I thought went well with the "Birds of Prey" angle for the Black Canary character. I tried to break the current Black Canary's costume down to its main parts and them recombine those elements. So jumbled up a leather jacket, fishnets, and a corset with some modern flashes.
I envision her origin as something similar to the current Black Canary. Her father was the last person to carry the Black Canary mantle. She was raised amongst the 2099-era Justice League and has received some form of training from almost every member. Where things differ are that I see a bit or rebellion in her. Originally she didn't want to be a hero. She struck of on her own as a model and party girl. Her father's death however brought her some clarity and returned her to the Justice League. She is the team's field leader and takes her job seriously. However, when the stress gets to her and she does feel the need to blow off a little steam, she calls up a friend of hers from her party girl days, The Green Arrow of 2099, and they make some noise around town.
^^^ I just added all that information to my original post for easier viewing ^^^
Been meaning to finally color this, so here it is!
" @Darkthewise: I like it, but I feel like something was lost in the inking process, I like the pencil version better. "I would tend to agree with you but if I hadn't seen earlier works by him it would need more contrast with blacks. This is probably where his color skills will take over, : )
