MyDCU: Black Canary by BSDigitalQ MyDCU: Black Canary by BSDigitalQ
Moving on in MyDCU, we have Black Canary, a classic DC heroine and Justice Leaguer.

Like quite a few characters I've run up against, Canary has one of those really classic designs that are really hard to work with. On top of that, she doesn't have many alternate designs or redesigns floating around, and what is out there is almost always ugly and overly complicated, or sexes her up to ridiculous heights. I like heroines to be sexy, but sometimes designers go to such extremes I have to scratch my head at whatever they were thinking.

But I noticed that BC's design has a slight hint of "biker gal" in it, so for my design I played that aspect up. I kept the fishnets, cause they are one of Canary's signature design elements. I had originally intended to give her some black jean pants, but the significance of the fishnets made me ditch that idea. So I looked to inspiration at a local Harley-Davidson store close to where I live, and I took a look a some of the women's wear there and consulted with the fine ladies who run the store. So in the end I went with hotpants for Canary, a larger jacket than the one she normally wears in the comics and cartoons, tassles on the jacket (just about every item in the store had tassles in one form or another), and a lower-midriff baring zippered leather shirt (which, unlike her comics outfit is not strapless, though you can't tell here).

Canary's look in the cartoons always makes the jacket blue, probably so it doesn't blend in with the rest of her outfit, but here the blue never looked right, so I made the whole ensemble black. Which is funny, given that three out of the four ladies I'm serving up have outfits that are predominantly black. :lol:
