Witchsonas!

Apparently it's Witchsona Week (although it may have already finished, I don't know). Anyway, I think the idea is that during this week, you create a witch-y persona for yourself. I came up with two ideas, but - because I couldn't choose - I decided to draw both! A gnome-witch complete with stripy socks and majestic beard, and a garden flower witch.

Zatanna the Magician - Redesign

Here's another tweak of a previous redesign: this time of the magician Zatanna.
I ditched the fishnets and top hat, favoring a star and zig-zag pattern to embellish a patterned black and purple tuxedo-style suit. I also thought it would be cool if she could fly around on a giant playing card, and have a satchel full of magical equipment (amulets, spell-books, etc.).

The Flash - Redesign

I'm currently really enjoying the CW's Flash live action tv series, and it got me thinking about how fantastic a character the Flash really is. A superhero who isn't defined by the fact that he fights crime, but rather saving lives, fixing problems and generally speaking helping people. In all his various personifications, he's a warm, positive genuinely human hero, who has his fair share of tragedies and issues, but isn't hung up on them, and never lets them define him.
Therefore, I decided to update my earlier redesign of the scarlet speedster, removing the helmet and visor, replacing them with a more recognisable cowl, with goggles and lightning bolts.
Below the redesign are some sketches: I really wanted to emphasize the 'speed' elements, trying to give him an early racing car driver look, but also incorporate the 'scientist', with the side-satchel containing the Flash's stash of high-energy food, to help him cope with a super accelerated metabolism.
