Commissions!

These are a couple commissions I did for a very sweet lady named Esther.

The first is Silver Age Catwoman.
She asked if I could have Catwoman posing with her two cats. She sent me some photo reference and this is the result. It was a challenge doing realistic looking cats, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
The second is Grifter and Zealot from the Wildcats comics. I wasn't very familiar with either of these characters so I had to do a little bit of research to figure out their personalities.
I ended up doing this piece twice. Here is the first attempt:

It just happened that this one ended up being extremely similar to a commission she already owned, so I took another stab at it. I'm kind of glad it happened that way, because I ended up liking the second attempt a lot better. Zealot looked a little manly in the first.

These is cool - those Persian cats are crazy cute - I'm sure they're proud to have been immortalized through art in such a grand fashion...

Dear Lauren .My name is Pablo Stadelman, I live in Campana, Buenos Aires province, Argentina. I dared to write this mail because I admire your work. More than anything, from discovery in the illustrations of yo in the internet . From there i discover your brilliant art, but even if I found your devianart. I have nothing of cartoonist. But I quite well as the writer (eye, I am not nor Morrison Byrne). Since last year we are putting together with my partner and friend (Agustin Grassi http://jagrassi.deviantart.com/) a project that just goes at number one, called "Aldus", that in comics store since December last year under the Reflex stamp editions (http://www.rfxediciones.com.ar/). It's a simple story, layer and sword as they say usually, which combines several genres, humor, suspense, and so on. As a condiment to the magazine, and we're arming the Web page (Very soon) . We look for artists to perform covers of character. It joined the idea Jorge Blanco, bruno, Mr exes, Gustavo room, and several more that are already drawing.

That's why I dared to write, to see if tapeworms time (and obvious desire) to make a drawing of our character and then post with others.

Your work again, I love, and truth to me encantaria count on your contribution to enrich the project that we are arming (and hopefully grow).

I dismissal with a big hug from the other side of the continent, awaiting your prompt response. Since already a friend, Paul Stadelman
