Vixen - Canson Portrait

Vixen © DC Comics

I think this is the first time I have ever drawn Vixen. I have a couple of sheets of Canson paper that are perfect for characters of color. My first impulse was Storm. Then the X-Men, Thunder Bird. Maybe Luke Cage. Well, I didn't feel like drawing a tough guy today but liked the idea of doing someone I have never tackled before. Then while searching for some Bob Oksner artwork online, I came across Vixen. In case you didn't know, Vixen was created by Gerry Conway (first comic pro I ever met) and Bob Oksner. So I had my character to draw. I went with her more contemporary look, not really liking the Wolverine-like hair she sported for a while. I think this look is much more elegant, sexy and it took care of my need to draw a beautiful woman. Maybe I'll draw Thunder Bird or Cage tomorrow. :)

This was done in ink and white color pencil on a 9" x 12" sheet of Canson Paper.
