Bad News by alannahowe Bad News by alannahowe
Poison Ivy was always a favorite of mine when I was younger. Sometimes I wonder how she would react to the constant stream of bad news we get about the state of the planet.

Sketched in pencil, coloured with photoshop, and took way too long. About 3 weeks of nearly all my spare time.

This is beautiful. Ivy is one of my favorite Batman villains, if not my absolute fav, and the way you've depicted her here is just stunning and unique. She's sexy without even trying and everything from her pose to the plant holding her tea to the glasses just exudes that effortless vibe, that something special, that makes every one love her. 

Amazing job.

Favoriting this because I was desperate to find it a while ago for a reference for a Poison Ivy cosplay I did where this was the inspiration to carry sphotos-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hph… (this) little guy around

Hands down this is one of the, if not THE best Poison Ivy interpretation I've seen. Sleek and sexy but the glasses keep as a nice reminded that she was a scientist of sorts. Really good job on this one.

Nice work! Ya know, I always thought Poison Ivy needed a plant pet/companion...similar to what Spike was to Bushroot in the series 'Darkwing Duck.'

I really like the way she is portrayed here. In this piece she is the combination of a scientist, a young sexy women, who is a bit insecure. With her glasses and the way her hair is made up she looks like a typical student. I really love this interpretation of Ivy, as mostly Ivy is portrayed as a sexy women. This is not a typical Ivy-art :)

Aaaw, the fly trap offering mommy a cup of tea is just adorable.

Hmm... Hang on... Ivy loves plants, she can talk and commune with them... So would she drink tea? It's made from the leaves of plants after all, she might view it like we would view a drink made from people's fingers.

I know right? Well, I guess being the supervillain that she is, she would get to work destroying the human race. But there would definitely be this moment of exasperation in there somewhere :)

maybe that's better for this planet (?) or, at least nobody would object her nailing every major business destroying the environment..because basically we're gonna kill ourselves AND the environment...
I think Ivy is the most misunderstood "villain" in comic book history :(
