Poison Ivy by Elvenwyn Poison Ivy by Elvenwyn
Line art by :iconjimmymcwicked:--->[link]

I was watching these two speed paint videos by :iconadonihs: -->[link] and [link] and decided to try out the technique he used for those two pictures in line art I was going to colour. I tried it out and well, I must say, the result was just awesome!

Anyway, I was thinking of what I could put behind Poison Ivy as something she could lean against, but the way her feet were posed kind of caused me to scrap the ideas because otherwise it wouldn't look right (also I didn't want to put her sitting on top of a plant or vines because there's already too much green).

Poison Ivy belongs to DC comics.

I didn't draw this picture just coloured it, but I can still give ideas. Maybe you can have her standing in the center of the picture with all sorts of man-eating plants on each side of her (just as long as it's not too many) with a dark-ish/gradient background. With the pose you could put her in a normal or sexy kind of pose without overdoing it.

I know I DON'T want her in the center; it's a poor composition, no offense. It's too easy. Too many people do it. I've read too many books and seen too much art, and my eye is drawn the most to off-set compositions. Of course, as you may know, there are many other types.

True, well yesterday I was giving a composition off the top of my head there, I've never really thought of Ivy otherwise. I can't really think of a composition of her that has her off to the side where you can tell she's the main element of the picture unless she's beating up Batman, Robin, Nightwing or some other hero (but then again, that's also a very common composition).

she'd be at a focal point
