Creeping Ivy by oxboxer Creeping Ivy by oxboxer
Not quite there. Needs more scary. Didn't think this design would be so hard to nail down!

ETA, regarding the legs: I got lazy and decided not to draw them in fully, since I feel like I worked them out to my satisfaction in [link] Sorry for the confusion! And thanks for the design crit so far, you guys are really laying down some good stuff! I am blessed with intelligent watchers, ah~

Quick question... is this Poison Ivy? Because if so, this is a creepy-cool redesign of her. I often wonder how good the designs would be if DC could include actual mature imagery for their comics. Not just nudity for titillation, but creepy things such as Ivy here or one of my favorite redesigns of Wonder Woman [link] . Not exactly PG, but truer to her origins and (ironically) a more practical outfit than the armored swimsuit.

Needs more rib cage showing and ... ivy maybe? The rib cage opened is so creepy though. XD Perhaps the stuff coming out of her ribs could also be like a flower's stamen?

I like the long arm-hands though ... definitely creepy.

Hahah, I was gonna write "Oh my God, I love the legs", and then I saw your description... xD
Still loving the legs though! :heart:

That collar she's rocking that's growing right out from under her skin is great. What about incorporating some of the alternative, creepy eye colorations Jesus Saiz has been using in his new 52 rendition? With black corneas and pupil-less green irises. I understand a lot of the disdain so many fans have for the DCnU, but there are the occasional good ideas, and I think that's one that's really unique for how Ivy's usually portrayed - not to mention the crazy effects you can get with it.

What about messing with her skin color, too?

I don't want to mess with her skin color much past the green gradient creeping up from the extremities and the green freckling... Don't want to veer too far into "sexy green Orion ladies from Star Trek" territory. Whenever I see green skin in the comics it looks too artificial. Plus I've been thoroughly brainwashed into digging her creepily pale look from B:tAS. :B

The eyes though... I'm in total agreement with you (and every other commenter who's brought them up), they really need something more. Hadn't even seen Saiz's take, very interesting!

Hahaha. Okay. Although those green freckles are fricking fantastic.

Look it up, they really pack a punch!

Her feet look like tree roots. Nice touch! This is one of the most creative poison ivy designs I've seen. I'd rather see Batman fighting her than our usual nymph.

The arms and ivy/chest thing are rad. Awesome design and ideas.
