Love-signal by mikemaihack Love-signal by mikemaihack
Here's the piece I ended up painting for the 2011 Heroes Con art auction. Part of my "Catwoman Sitting on Pillows in Front of Giant Bay Windows and/or Holding Things" series.

Yeah yeah. I've drawn similar before. But this time I painted her! Other than sketch cards and an occasional animal here and there, this is the first time in ten years I've pulled out the acrylics for some sort of substantial piece. I just wanted to be able to offer something unique and in color at this year's auction. Plus I thought of this idea and thought it'd be fun. So that's that.

Heroes Con is next weekend! Already!! By far my favorite comic show. Hope to see a bunch of you there!

Haha she stole the Bat!! CatWoman rocks so much, and she goes well with your cute style. This is acrylic? I though it was water color ... Well it looks great anyway.

Oh my goodness! This is just way too freakin' cute!! I absolutely love the concept of this. Catwoman looks great, you totally nailed the curves of her body. Of course, that sleeping cat almost takes all the attention away from her -- it's just so darn cute! Actually, this piece really looks like it belongs in the comics section of a newspaper. I could be imagining things here but.... some of the buildings seem to have bat ears and another vaguely resembles the bat symbol. Was that intentional?

You know... I would love to see them do this in the new Batman film. Although, I think it would be a little too comical...

mikemaihack Featured By Owner May 29, 2011  Professional General Artist
haha! agreed. i don't think this would fit the tone of the new bat films. not that i wouldn't love to see that!

and yeah, the bat eared architecture was intentional, but i tried to keep it subtle. glad you noticed!

thanks so much!

YUSSS! That's so cool that you did that with the buildings. It's such a nice touch. So many people would bother and this is why you rock. :D

gorgeous! looks like watercolours not acrylics - how did you get that technique? did you then ink on top? lovely stuff :D

:iconmikemaihack:
mikemaihack Featured By Owner May 29, 2011  Professional General Artist
i water the acrylics pretty heavily so in a way it is more or less watercolor. i find acrylics easier to layer though. and yeah, inks are on top. thanks!

SO ADORABLE. And it just occurs to me that Bats may have asked Gordon permission to do that. D'awwww!

This is adorable, and so are the goat and the giraffe. And the differences in their characterizations are cute. :D
