YOUNG JUSTICE: BATGIRL by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: BATGIRL by philbourassa
DC Nation is back and with it the return of YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION! To celebrate I thought I would share some Batgirl art I did a while back.
As a character designer I spend A LOT of time drawing characters in relatively static poses for the sole purpose of conveying basic information to board artists and animators, and while I certainly try to inject those drawings with as much life and vitality as I can to help convey the attitude and personality of the character, nothing quite compares to the fun of drawing the characters in action. I find it to be something of a release from the conservative discipline required to draw your basic model sheet.
Big props to Dazzlin' Dusty Abell for inking my pencil art on these.

Batgirl and Young Justice belong to WB and DC Entertainment and cannot be used without permission.

Given her general proportions, her boobs are a normal size. I do agree on the fake though. They look like they've been glued on as an afterthought.

Why'd they have to cancel this beauty of a show and replace it with the soul crush that is the tiny titans poop. DC is killing me. Killing me with knives made of sad and flames of demons.

Sorry, in Canada here and behind on what is going on, but when you say YJ is back, do you mean in re-runs or there will be a season 3?

I love seeing these images of the characters and the detail of their costumes. As I've said before, I wish that when DC did their reboot, that they gave you and your crew the task of doing the updated modern costume designs cos they really are great without being too complicated and still iconic.

Will we see more of the characters?

After watching some of the latest episodes I really would love to see Arsenal's design, please? I hated when they took his arm in the comics and gave him that awful gold arm, but again, you and you guys have taken something awful and made it look great and functional. I'd really love to get a proper look at his design and maybe have some fun drawing him the way I did with Red Arrow, so if that's possible it would be great. Hope to see all the characters looks and designs like this.

Thanks again and fantastic work. Big fan!

Thanks for the kind words Sean. :) Yeah, I will absolutely post more art up when I have the time to go through my files and get stuff ready to present. I would love to see your take on my Arsenal design, always cool to see talented artists draw this stuff!

Wow, that's great stuff. Thank you sir! I will definitely link you to any pics of the Young Justice characters I draw. I'm planning one very soon just for fun, at the moment I've just done Red Arrow here [link] (the ladies seem to favourite this pic more than any others so he's a bit of a hit, no pun intended. :aww: )

Thank you again and look forward to seeing more YJ work, and whatever you work on after that. All the best!

dc nation is the best segment on cn right now, cant believe what they are going to do. They should expand and not remove shows, what an end to a very short era. Maybe they might make a comeback like family guy, lol

It happens, but hey, it was fun while it lasted. Sadly it is the end for YJ and GLtAS, but there will be more shows on DC nation that you might enjoy if you give them a chance. :)
