Alas, poor Batman... by Griffinfly Alas, poor Batman... by Griffinfly
My entry for the Comicon challenge 2010.
Turnaround of the character: griffinfly.deviantart.com/art/…
Ivy is older now, she's so old that some parts of her body aren't functioning properly. Though this is not a problem, for she replaced or supported them with the tissues of plants which she now has under her full control. Her mind is still sharp, as well as her sight, and her back is straight, thanks to the corset she's been wearing all these years.
Men are still at her feet and are ready to obey her - thanks to the plant feromones she's using.
And uh, it seems like her followers brought her a little present...

___________________________________________

I don't expect much since there are so many cool entries this year, but well it's about participating, not winning, right? xD
Still I'm very happy I entered, and huge thanks to LilithTD for encouraging me all the way! I love you sis!

UPD. By the way here's her entry as well: lilithtd.deviantart.com/art/Co…
Go give her some love, she does 3d like a pro!
UPD 2: Nossa, a DD! Thanks!
Ok, I hope this pic will make you smile as much as I giggled while drawing it. Cheers!
UPD 3: Gah, I made it into the top!! *bricks falling* -> www.comiconchallenge.com/2010/…

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-09
Alas, poor Batman... by ~Griffinfly left me speechless for a moment, then I giggled and finally stared at it in awe! A fan artwork that's bound to make you think about it all day long! Also suggested by ^lone-momo. ( Suggested by milyKnight and Featured by rydi1689 )

I FOUND IT!!!
I saw this artwork long time ago, and I was wondering if you had an account somewhere that I could comment and let you know how much I love it. Lucky me to find this here! :)

I have to say, I really love this concept. Poison Ivy seems to work much better as this old, kind and yet twisted Mother Nature rather than how the comics traditionally depict her.

Looks like Poison Ivy has... wait for it... GONE TO SEED!

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.

Ahem. Nice use of autumn colors to evoke her age, and the painting style is lovely and evocative.

Very well drawn, I admire such talent you've expressed into this!! Absolutely wonderful texture along with fine toning, the image clear to see with well-shaded outlines. The creativity is great as intended, and I am impressed with this!! Well done, 10/10 of course!!

The way the art itself flows with such a formality that causes passion to overflow through my body when I see this...it's breath taking...Well done indeed and this was without a doubt considered as "Art". Not to mention overall it's such a wonderful inspiration this drawing gives me! So detailed along with a great moral sense of value, delightful scenery added with details beyond mere words! I truly value this a lot, very well expressed and high quality into the characters themselves. Even an interesting touch of some vivid coloring.
