Batgirl No. 27 by AlexGarner Batgirl No. 27 by AlexGarner
Cover to Batgirl #27.

Had to be done reasonably quickly due to a late scheduling change. Using an older layout for another Batgirl cover I was working on months ago and then plugging the new costume was my pragmatic solution to make this deadline. My only gripe is that I wish I had the time to set this piece aside for a few days so I could see the mistakes with fresh eyes, because right now my eyes are very fresh and I see a few things I would definitely like to change. No time this time unfortunately.

And don't ask me to explain the costume because I'm sworn to secrecy. Or maybe it's because I'm too lazy to answer. Either way, you get nothing from me ;)

Featured in portuguese blog Coisas da Interwebs. Have an awesome weekend. If you could please share this feature, I'd really appreciate it, as lots of hard work goes into finding and selecting all the awesome art and running the blog. Thanks!…

LOL!  Hmmm.... Bat-Ghost?  Or maybe Ghostbat to name this alternate costume?  I do think a cowl or hood should be used to hide her hair though.  Good stuff anyways ;)

I wish I could make art like this

Curious to know what you would like to change on this. I like this look, great pose and foreshortening too. I think it would be cool if her kit got a bit grubby after smashing up the baddies too.

Your covers are one reason why I'm so glad I subscribed to this comic book. I love the character anyway, but your covers are awesome!!! Love the white variation even though it could be her snow-suit, but it's a nice variation and beautifully done. Love the mask design and how she has  bat-symbol clasp for her cape. Great texturing in her costume, too.:love:

Again loving the colours. what are you using? and how long did it take you for this piece and for all cover in a regular time frame? Thanks!

I did the rough sketch many months ago so that was already done. Using that I did this in about 3 days I think? All Photoshop.

Xeranx Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013
Very nice. Would this somehow act as some kind of Rorschach-esque reveal if I said that I thought you were using Belladonna as a reference?

I don't read comics anymore, but I must say this would definitely catch my attention enough just to pick it up and glance through it. The lighter costume is definitely a source of intrigue given the  general costume rule amongst the 'Bat' franchise.

Instantly made me think of what Babs would look like as a White Lantern and I do so love the look I mean Babara looks absolutely beautiful. Kind of a shame it's more then likely going to end up as a one-shot deal unless this suit does become a regular thing and that would be fantastic really. :D

Brilliant art, as always, Alex... But dear gods how much I despise this costume design.  I guess DC forgot the horror of Alicia Silverstone Batgirl.
