The Women of the DCU resin mini bust line from DC Direct.
I took this line over as Art Director/designer when i started with DC Direct.
Where i felt more freedom on the Heroes line, the Women line posed some unique challenges. Preconceptions based on pervious product, popular artists, and inner politics.
I think the Series i worked on tread the line between cool, kick ass superhero bust and classic pin-up....There is a nod to both!
I also got to bring my aesthetic to the heroines, and try to tell a bit of a story, making the poses more dynamic overall and adding more detailed, story centric bases.
This was done for the Heroes line as well.
Again, the comic artists i worked with on these were top notch! They leave you in awe everytime a drawing comes in.
The Batgirl bust is an intersting one. It won a Diamond Gem award for best selling mini bust of 2010. In regards to 10 months of busts the Batgirl was at the top in sales, selling almost 3 times as many as some others in the comparison.
Guess she's not so goofy looking after all, huh?
