Cassandra Cain is such a compelling character, I really feel like I need to pick up her Batgirl comics but they’re so hard to find here! I love how the theme of redemption is so deeply ingrained in her stories. I love how she’s part Asian. I love how her instinct regarding murder is so completely free of the fact that both her parents are ruthless assassins. I love how she’s one of the best martial artists in the DC universe. I love learning about these characters as I draw them.
This is her as the Black Bat, though I do feel that it’s very easy to mistake her for the Huntress here, sorry about that. I modeled her after Kiko Mizuhara who plays Midori in Norwegian Wood, knowing full well that she’s Japanese of Korean descent and that not all Asians look the same.
[Edit: This presumptuous ignoramus just assumed she was Japanese because of her name and that she was in a Japanese film, even though a quick Google check would’ve informed me that she’s actually Korean-American. Thanks targaryenna for pointing this out in your tags! (yes, I see all your notes)]
