Random Works of Wow and illustrating the point this week is Greg Land and Catwoman.
Not that 'Greg Land' - this is from his pre-magazine reference days. Yet if you can draw Selina Kyle this well, do you really need photos?
Like Batman is arguably a bigger icon than Superman, Catwoman is arguably a bigger icon than Wonder Woman, yet deceptively harder to draw.
Alot of Catwoman's charm is in just that. It's her body language, and how she can go from playful kitty, to flirty tabby to feral vixen all in the space of a few seconds. In Nightwing #52, Greg proves he can render all three in ways that would make most artists blush, and still have them 'read' as the same character.
For a Nightwing issue, the story centres more on Selina, who attempts a jewellery heist in Bludhaven, flirting relentlessly with 'the junior Bat' in the process. Coming under fire from the owner's thugs for interrupting his own schemes, Selina's true goal is revealed; making Bats jealous, and it goes well.. that's what back issue bins are for.
With Greg's art this good, believe me, it's worth the dig.
