Barda may be my favorite comic book superheroine of them all. Her outfit, her personality, her background, EVERYTHING! :::sigh:::If only she existed in real life, I'd put a ring on her in a heartbeat! That is, if she was already shacked up with Scott Free...
I don't think she has, at least an ongoing series anyway. I've only ever seen her as a major supporting character in Kirby's Mister Miracle series as well as the occasional guest appearance in several other DC flagship titles over the years. I just hope they don't wind up burying her again because she's one of the best characters Kirby ever came up with.
Yeah, you're right about that-- or, if not her hair, just another piece of her headdress. That's how I was originally planning on doing it, but when I drew her with her head turned, I couldn't make sense of how the headdress would bend around her shoulders to amke that position possible. Luckily, I found an image where the artist (I think it was Kevin Maguire?) drew it like this, so I went with it!
Well done! When it comes to drawing characters, you've got this George Perez feel in that, like him, when you draw any characters, you draw them RIGHT. I can't put it in any other words, except, that it's on model, in the right personality, whatever. And it's all gorgeous.
