Black Cat: Closure by liquidd-1 Black Cat: Closure by liquidd-1
Full View Is Best

Love is a fickle emotion. Hot and intense one moment then bitter and cold the next. A gamble of the heart. Infatuation, on the other hand, is far more forgiving, but it too can hurt. Especially when it is confused as love. Such was the case of Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat who wanted to be with Spiderman and for a time got her wish. But the romance was short lived because Felicia could not love Peter Parker the man, she was too infatuated with Spiderman.

Black Cat is a fine looking woman and since I had to try out the Wacom Graphire tablet I won in *drakhenliche's contest I figured I create this piece. A few pieces of symbolism are strewn about in it for good measure.

Black Cat and Spiderman are copyright Marvel Comics Entertainment
Illustration copyright myself, of course.

The only heroines who are interested in both Peter Parker and Spider-Man are The Black Widow and Spider-Woman. And this would be prior to the Black Cat's introduction in 1979. In retrospect, I wished that the Black Widow was Spider-Man's first crime fighting partner followed by Jessica Drew. Don't you agree?

Any thoughts about doing a Black Widow vs Black Cat or Spider-Woman vs Black Cat artwork?

I really love this, its really gorgeous. I think you can feel the intensity and sorrow of all their relationship from the way you drew it. It's so bittersweet!

aaawww!! so nice!! I love the cat *-*

I like how when I first looked at this I thought she was wearing a cloak. In many Black Cat pictures all you notice is her body but in this one she seems wrapped up in her melancholy like the cloak. It's only later I realised it was her body and how well the anatomy was drawn. She is sitting like a cat.

I also like the wind blowing through her hair and the fur on her boots which adds movement and more feeling. Her sad face is beautiful and I love the cat taking the mask like the predator it is.

I like the perspective on the building and how it leads the eye towards Spidey too.

Their romance was a fool's pursuit at first, but she's realized her mistake long ago.
Her face looks so alive...
Love her wispy hair too.

zerry Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2006
Bloody awesome... reminds me of the new Black Cat/Wolverine limited series Claws, which starts with Felicia telling an overly-amorous Parker to kindly bugger off.

I agree with the statement that her outfit looks velvety (as well as beautiful) and the wispy hair is wonderfully detailed. On top of it all the cat (y'know, the real one) looks very well done and realistic. Amazing stuff man :boogie:
liquidd-1 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2006  Professional General Artist
Thanks, Zerry! Oddly enough, I didn't spend much time on the cat. It was actually fairly easy to draft it with the Wacom, so I'm surprised it came out as well as you say. Thanks for the kind words.

Oh, wow! I bet that lil' tablet never dreamed it'd be creating something that awesome! Beautiful picture! Especially her face and hair.

On another note - my devwatch hasn't been showing me your deviations! :cries:
liquidd-1 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2006  Professional General Artist
Yeah, I'm loving the tablet, Izzy! Perfect beginner's choice. :nod: Once I get the hang of it I think I'll invest in one with a larger drawing area :D

It's not showing them? Really? That sucks. Wonder why?
drakhenliche Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
I've found my A5 one helpful, though when it comes to colouring I still seem to only use a small area of it! What's really handy are the shortcut buttons on the side of the tablet (the closer 'undo' is for me, the better :D).
I've rewatched you now so hopefully you'll stay on my watch this time!!!
