A Dedicated Vegetarian by phantom-inker A Dedicated Vegetarian by phantom-inker
This is a commission by the same guy who commissioned the drawings of Kiva as a centaur. This is, of course, the one and only Pamela Isely, whom we know best as Poison Ivy, green girl extraordinaire, occsional eco-terrorist, and perpetual foe of Batman.

This is drawn in the style of a good animation cell from Batman: The Animated Series, done entirely with vectors (duh), and took around 8 hours, I think. I'm fairly satisfied with it; Ivy came out kinda cute and sexy, even if it was relatively quick. I used three reference images, one a Google image search result of an animation cell of Ivy, and the other two being a nude model photo and a photo of a horse I found somewhere on deviantART, both for poses. That said, the shading's all my own, so it's unlikely you'll be able to tell which photos they were (and I don't remember ^^; ).

Anyway, enjoy! This is the first thing I've posted here in quite some time, and it'll likely be quite a while before I post the next something.

it would make more sence if she was a carnivor but in a way it would make even more sense that she be a vegetarian like she loves plants so much she would rather have plants give her nutrients rather then meat. like she wants her body to be only plants inside and out. do i make sense?

How cute! I love the way you positioned the front legs so that the pose works as a whole and creates an expressive image. I particularly enjoy the sly back legs; it's almost like she's sauntering ^^ Great work, and thanks for the :+fav:! :)

This... was a specialized commission, and I don't normally take commissions. It's unlikely you'll see me draw Ivy again, human or otherwise.

its your choice not to do her again if you don't want to , but can you do the ivy from soul calibur 4 with the rattlesnake body? this is a request but not a commission.

Except in very, very rare circumstances, I don't take requests either: You can offer suggestions, but I don't place any guarantees you'll see me draw any of them.

And no, SC4's Ivy didn't inspire my muse, so you probably won't see her drawn.

that is awesome...but despite the fact that she's a vegetarian, my logic always made me think she should be a carnivore, why you ask? well, she loves plants right, she loves them alot, more than people in fact, so much that she would scream in terror when one of her plants were killed, so with that in mind, is'nt it a little werid that she eats PLANTS, the same plants she see's as family, it's kinda...canibalisic or somthing. in my mind Ivy should eat meat, something she'd veiw as worthless, rather than plants, something she holds dear.

That's a really good version of Ivy! So seductive. Give her human legs, and it would look just like her. Well, at least how I imagine her. (Speaking as someone who hasn't actually seen the comic, only live action...>.> I should probably go look that up.)

I generally preferred the animated version, myself; this Ivy is my Ivy, and the comic-book Ivies really aren't Ivy for me.

Ivy looks good like that, doesn't she? ^_^

Every once in a while, I debate trying to do more of the Batman/Superman characters as centaurs, but I've never really gotten around to it. *shrug*

If Jason from the Wotch saw this he would die a happy man! Either that or beg Anne to be her personal manservent for the rest of his life just for her to try and bring your Ivytaur here to life. :giggle: I know this is Ivy from the Batman series but something about her pose just screams Jessica Rabbit to me.

Jason: :jawdrop: I LOVE YOU!!!!!! :blowkiss: :date:

Robin: You have no life :X She's just a toon.

Jason: NEVER SPEAK OF HER LIKE THAT!! :fork:

Robin: ANNE!! HELP!! :sprint:

Jason: Don't mess with my RED heads :threaten:

Thanks! Admittedly, she was fun to draw, and I really do miss the old BTAS shows. Justice League is fun, but it has nowhere near the elegance of style that BTAS had.

Yeah, that's an awesome style, too bad it's fallen off of TV more or less.

Yeah, sadly. You can still catch a little bit of it on Justice League, but that's nowhere near the show that BTAS was.

Heh, wouldn't that make her a cannibal, since she's part plant herself? Or just a semi-cannibal?
Don't pay any attention to me, I'm crazy ;)

You're not the first person to suggest that Ivy ought to be a carnivore, not a vegetarian; but she is a vegetarian, as has been shown in the comic books and TV series not a few times, so this just shows that she's a bit more dedicated than most.

And thanks, I'm glad you like it! I wanted her to really look like herself, and I think I got that much.
