Steampunk Lady Blackhawk Zinda Blake by DubuGomdori Steampunk Lady Blackhawk Zinda Blake by DubuGomdori
Lady Blackhawk, aka Zinda Blake, I found to be an interesting character. She comes from the 50s, should be dead by now like the rest of her team, but through some weird circumstance in time she's thrusted into present day where she ends up on the Birds of Prey team under DC Comics as an aviatrice. She is skilled in flying any aircraft. She pilots the helicopter for the team that she has dubbed Aerie Two, can order beer in 30 different languanges, is a fine markswoman, skilled in the use of a variety of weapons, and has superior abilities in hand-to-hand combat, loves cooking and dancing. Can you really ask for anything more?

I wanted to do a Steampunk something starting a search to what character would be good to get the make over treatment. Someone who could be a natural, or not. I thought about Dr. Strange using several gadgets to cast spells. Gambit who could throw all these different types of gears. Iron Man, but he's be done many times by others. Wonder Woman who has the invisible plane. That got me thinking about other characters who pilot. Lady Blackhawk came to mind and got the single vote needed for a makeover. So, I decked her out with several accessories and gave her a big gun. Redid the Blackhawk logo a little. Whaddaya think?

Alot of you always ask if my work will ever get colored. And some do. This time around you have a rare treat of seeing Lady Blackhawk in color. Click here [link] and you'll see this fabulously colored by JNetRocks :iconjnetrocks: who I've admired for some time now.

And if you like that steampunk, wait till you see who gets the steampunk treatment next. That will be posted for all you to see next week.

Materials Used: 11x17 Strathmore Bristol Smooth, various grahite and mechanical pencils, Photoshop CS, inspired by DC Comics Lady Blackhawk
