Alert: please look at the my full-color 2008 Batgirl pic because this one just isn't good. I'm only saying this here because search engines hit this picture far more even though it's a crappier pic.
The 2003 pic was drawn during the Artist's Constipation period and I wanted to take a second shot at the character. I tried again in 2006 because of the the-current Batgirl internet meme rolling around and the added bonus of looking at Yvonne Craig for reference. While I was going for a comic-like Batgirl, I still wanted some of her visual influence in the picture and I think it worked to a degree. I left most of the inking open because I planned to color variant color schemes like the one from Batman: the Animated Series. I'm not sure how I ended up liking this picture but it didn't last long since I nevet got around to coloring it. It's all for the best because the 2008 picture turned out MUCH better.
