One for the redheads. #redheads #batgirl

This started off as an exercise in doing things wrong. Like cutting the building through her waist line, the buildings behind her cape, and such n such. Things and mistakes or misteps that pencilers have done in images I have had to ink and make work. This was to see if I could set myself up with those obstacles in the pencils. I ended up having enough fun and making it work well enough that I added a touch of color and shared.
It’s good to give yourself challenges. I do a lot of things like this that I would probably never post because they get so ugly but i like to make my brain work in different ways.

More of the the “Alice” Tea Set that Jody designed in 2003: a porcelain Mad Hatter cream pitcher. Acrylic paint on black paper.(Incidentally, his teapot-holding arm is the handle, his hat is the lid, and the cream pours out of his sleeve cuff! )

Scientists Develop a Darker Black
Really dark black is apparently the new black. From The Independent:

A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.
If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.
Actual applications are more serious, enabling astronomical cameras, telescopes and infrared scanning systems to function more effectively. Then there are the military uses that the material’s maker, Surrey NanoSystems, is not allowed to discuss.

You can read the rest here. The obvious question is: how much more black can this be? And the answer is — none. None more black.
