Heroes and Villains

I've had in mind for a good while now to make a series of illustrations of heroes and villains, some of them that I really like and a couple that I don't particularly care for, but I know are super popular.
The only one's that's gotten on paper so far has Catwoman, but in line and upcoming are: Black Widow, X-23, Elektra, Aeon Flux, Kabuki, Poison Ivy, Rogue, Storm (<3), Phoenix, Mystique, Wolverine, Gambit, Magneto, Emma Frost, Spiderwoman, Vampirella, Iron Man, Witchblade, Hulk, SheHulk, Angel. Maybe I could do Lara Croft, too, now that I think about it.
It's a long term project and it will take a while, but either way, I wanted to show off what I've done with Catwoman, even if I haven't touched her in a while, 'cuz I have difficulty working with architecture LOL
Here's the two that I've done of Catwoman <3
1. Very nice and all.

2. This one's my favorite, can you tell? XD I really like how she's turning out and sometimes when I like something a lot I slow down a bunch more, 'cuz I'm afraid I'll mess it up. And well, I made the mistake of working on the background last, so even more x_x
Either way, I only have ONE Catwoman comic and I'm not a really big comic book nerd or anything, so I don't know that much about her; but I DO know that she's some kind of an antihero and she's not really on anybody's side, but hers and doesn't really mean any harm. And in this image, I seriously like how her facial and body expression turned out: You catch her in a chilled moment, she looks really comfortable in her "habitat" and she gives you some kind of friendly, but distant look.

- BTW, there is never enough of this, but: LIKE in facebook Gabriela Handal Arte and suggest to people, too!
