Black Cougar by SharkSmirk Black Cougar by SharkSmirk
Just a quick sketch - for :iconcatwoman-fanclub:: catwoman through history.

I didn't want to pick something too common, and since I've always been in love with the way Pocahontas was drawn (too bad about the movie, though :D), I made a colonisation-of-America Catwoman :) She's from the fictional Black Cougar tribe that specialised in "borrowing". They mostly operated in the south of the continent, where gold and precious stones were prized (northern tribes are more practical in that respect, valuing things like land over bling). Not to get too political, but I always thought the first American colonizers were major DICKS, so I reeeally like the idea of them getting their asses kicked and being relieved of their precious kitschy trinkets :)

On a more arty note, I really had trouble with the outfit. Most Native American women's clothing seems very rich and layered, which would make it hard for her to run around and climb. So I was just like "I'll just modify the Pocahontas outfit, Disney probably knows what they're doing". Yeah, maybe not :P So she's basically wearing a cocktail dress, and the damn kitty ears look stupid (popular culture has obviously fried my brain). Gah, this is definitely going on the re-draw list.
