TRDL 2017 Series No. 08 - Starfire

I've drawn Starfire three times now, despite not being a DC fan as a kid (though I read the books), not being a George Perez fan (though I liked his attention to detail), not being a Teen Titans fan (c'mon, X-Men), and ultimately not being a Starfire fan. I think it was the iteration of her used in the cartoons that helped me wrap my head around the character, design-wise, isolating and simplifying her down to the more contemporary colorblocking of her skin, hair, costume, and eyes. Sort of a shame I drew her with her eyes closed on this one. Classic pinup pose here, and I had fun reinterpreting her hair -as- energy detail, leaning more on hair than energy. Quite enjoyed this one in the end.
