So I've had this ferocious Batman addiction lately and since all of the female villains are beautiful (at least, all that I can recall), I'm singling out Poison Ivy to be the victim of a much needed ugly/scary Villainess design (I'll try at least). Lady villains don't have to be ugly, but Christ, they ALL look like porn stars ready for action. Needs me some variety. While I enjoy the duality of evil coming in the form of someone gorgeous (and can appreciate a sexy lady), people that terribly ugly on the inside can't all be beautiful on the outside.
I think I did a good job making Harley look pretty freaky in the latest pic I posted of her, but she's still got the typical slutty my-tits-are-gonna-fall-right-out-of-this-in-5-4-3-2 outfit and I feel like I could do a lot better. I can't help it, I loves me a pretty, slutty Harley. But Poison Ivy I can thoroughly maim. Not that she's not a cool character--she is and that's why I think I could make her badass and grotesque. I'm looking for a real horror show sort of theme. Hope I can actually do it.
I suppose I could always make an original ugly Villainess too... But it's funner to mess with the design of an established character : )
