As it turns out I had to do a Birds of Prey commission, and man has this guy been patient with me. This is for the ever-enduring Andrew Wilson over in Manchester, UK. I actually got this commission request from Andrew over at the 11 O'Clock Comics Podcast message boards. The podcast is a great roundtable show about comics and I've gotten to be acquainted with the hosts over the last few years. Well Andrew, got a hold of me and asked for a convention style commission with at least 2 of the Birds of Prey characters. Then he waited, and waited. So I went all out on this one for him, I sure hope you dig it man.
This commission also gave me the chance to try some new rendering on reflective textures on the women's outfits. The background was more of an afterthought, but I thought I should put them in some kind of environment. I used Copic multi-liner tech pens all throughout. Mostly size 1.0, then .05 and .03 for the refined lines on some of the rendering and tight details. I used a PITT brush pen to fill in the blacks through out the piece.
