Q:Thank you so much for reblogging, and the kind comments. I cannot express how amazing it feels to get such comments from such a good artist as yourself and I'm very happy you feel I did your work justice. I had a blast coloring those pages in and I can't wait to see the rest of the strip so that I may play with those as well. It's funny, I actually think the new Batgirl book in DCNU while the inked black and white lineart was pretty good, but it has a horrible colorist. What do you think?
I’m not too fond of the art in its entirety, but the drawings are at least decent. And the coloring is bizarre in some spots. I don’t know about horrible, since the colorist does experiment and at least tries to grab your eyes in some points, but it could’ve definitely been better.
Honestly, I’m one of the people had was somewhat upset by the new Batgirl book, though I appear to be in the minority, or less vocal. Not because Babs is back as Batgirl exactly, since I enjoyed the comics and the show with her, but because her disability magically disappears as far as we know.
If a legitimate reason isn’t shown, it kind of feels like that the editors thought having a cripple as a major character was too much work and too boring. That the woman needs to be in tights and out fighting, forgetting the major impact and hurdles she overcame as Oracle and the leader of the Birds. To cite a reference to callous treatment from ‘a’ comic creator, the back of Adam Hughes’ “Cover Run” has a fake quote from Barbara that reads, “Run, don’t walk to get this book!”
Other than that, it was great seeing your work. You should stick it in a portfolio for others to see. And I’ll try to get the next two pages done as quickly as possible.
