Words can’t properly express how I feel about cosplayer/burlesquer/model Dangrrr Doll. She’s like, the coolest human ever, you guys (well…one of like 4). I did a Norse viking demon version of her in 2016 and had to do another piece with her likeness. She’s a big Captain Marvel fan (and has even done cosplay based on her) so I figured this was a good fit.
The suit is a composite from various sources I found on the internets. The pose, body and face are all Dangrrr.

I met Vera Bambi back in 2013 when her and her photographer were next to me at FanExpo. They were pleasant and accommodating, especially since that year in particular was very chaotic at my booth. We became internet friends and ran into each other a few times at other conventions. I’d been telling her for years that she was due to get the artistic treatment and finally I made good on my promise.
Vera is a cosplayer and cam model and you can find her online at verabambi.com (also follow her on Instagram and Twitter if you aren’t already – you probably are because she’s quite popular).
I’ve included the pencil and full-colour versions here to see the difference in the look of each piece. I’ve made the pencil version available in 8×10 prints and the colours in 11×17. The original goes to the model (next time I’m able to track her down that is).

One of my favourite things to do as an artist is revist images done in the past and give them a second look. This may involve adding more pencil lines, inking a penciled piece, adding colour, or in some cases, a complete redo.
Since 2017 began I went back to a few older pieces and added some colour to them. I’ve found my marker colouring skills have improved in the past 24-36 months and wanted to apply these skills to older pieces, in particular these three.
Wonder Woman in particular benefited from the extra coat and has made her way back into regular rotation of prints. There’s still a few older penciled artworks that may yet get a splash of colour.
