As they say on the streets, "I ain't touchin' that one."
I've got to get in on this Batgirl thing! It all started when an artist named Andi Watson posted some revamped-Batgirl concept sketches for a since-cancelled DC Elseworlds project. A few other artists then posted their own Batgirl concepts in their livejournals. I first heard about all this when I saw Josh was doing it. Since then, the number of participating artists has ballooned into the hundreds. You can find a full list of Batgirls here.
It sounded like a lot of fun, and I was already in a Batman-y mood after plowing through the fourth DVD volume of the Animated Series, so I've jumped in. But I don't have a livejournal, so I'm posting my batgirl here. You can view a larger version by clicking the image. The idea is to draw your own take on the character, rather than forcing yourself to stick to the originals. I'm not sure why my "ideal" Batgirl wears dress clothes and carries a sword, but it was the first image that popped into my head!
