Black Canary by AndyPoonDesign Black Canary by AndyPoonDesign
The 2nd episode of season 2 Arrow has aired and whose new to the city??? Black Canary!!! I was pretty excited when I first learned that she will appear in Arrow and get to work on her because I stopped working on Smallville just before they start bringing in the second round of super heroes which included the Black Canary as well. I felt like this is my second chance! As some of you who knows me in person that i'm a Batman fan, comic nerd, so I try really hard to retain any visual cues from the original source materials. On the previous Death Stroke design, alot of people weren't satisfied because in the comics he only has one eye and that was the network's decision and who knows maybe it'll evolve as the story develop. For Black Canary, I'm just waiting for people to flag that she is missing her signature fishnets. So if you haven't noticed, I implied the look of the fishnets with cross leather straps on her pants. They also announced awhile ago that there will be a FLASH series and will introduce Barry Allen in this season of Arrow. I don't know if I will get to work on Flash or any of his costume yet but to all my friends who knows me well, I'm one tiny step closer to maybe possibly working on Batman, someday ..... someday ..... its coming!!!

Her outfit looks awesome! I also like her expression, it's very determined and cool ;)

I think you really nailed it, the outfit really works for the show, it's got to walk a delicate line with tv-realism v the comic and I think the tights would have just felt ridiculous in the show.

Thankyou, it is hard to find the fine balance, either way would disappoint a different group of people, I just need to trust my gut instinct and both my knowledge of comics and realistic designs. Sometime the studio also have very specific directions, but normal quite open to see what i come up with first and then add on it.

I do wish Laurel had become the Canary instead of her sister. But the design is top notch.

They have a tendency to introduce different characters under the mantles first, like how Wintergreen was the first Deathstroke and Yao Fei the first Arrow. I'm sure Laurel will become Canary before too long.
