MIKEY ESPINOSA – POISON IVY – GOTHAM SIRENS (PART 1)

My latest redesigns will be of the DC heroines and villain, particularly the Gotham Sirens.

This post features the lovely Poison Ivy.

Her ability to control nature and her obsession with it was something I wanted to show in her redesign. She see’s nature as the true owners and rulers of Earth and  I wanted to show how manmade fabric is being held up by the plants, showing the strength of flora over man. Of course I wanted to stick true to her original design, giving her orange/red hair and slightly tinted green skin, I didn’t want her to have physical, plant like features.

Mikey Espinosa – Male body

I did a study of the male body. It’s been a while since I worked with acrylic paints since I’ve been using ink and water colours this year, especially with the fan art series. Doing this art piece was a good break from the watery mediums. This was a piece for Abraham Espinosa who works in Health and Fitness, I was focused on energy and the shape of a mans body.Mikey Espinosa - Body work out energy June 2015The piece during it’s progress.

Mikeylovestoys – Harley Quinn Arkham Knight review

mikeylovestoys - Harley Quinn 9It’s been a while since I posted things from my toy collection since I’ve been focusing so heavily on the art, MIKEYLOVESTOYS on instagram has been my main focus for sharing my collection. I decided to share my recent purchase Harley Quinn from the Batman Arkham Knight video game. Can I just say WOW! She comes with a bat, a gun, jack in a box and several hands. I love the paint job of the clothing, giving her that rough and grimy edge especially with the white fabric. The head sculpt is near perfect to the game and she’s a pretty figure, I do wish the white face paint wasn’t so white and having it slightly faded would have been a nice detail but that’s just me being picky. The articulation is great, it rotates at the torso and hips, and there is an ankle joint which allows her to stand in a very cute way!mikeylovestoys - Harley Quinn 11 mikeylovestoys - Harley Quinn 2 mikeylovestoys - Harley Quinn 5Usually I wouldn’t pick a Harley Quinn figure but I’m slowly growing to like her and this figure is the perfect representation of her for my taste. It’s sexy, dark and menacing!

I recently got the chance to meet Rila Fukushima at London comic con and it was awesome! She’s a high fashion model and actress. She made me love Yukio as a character in The Wolverine with Hugh Jackman, Rila can now be seen in Arrow as Katana and Game of Thrones.Mikey Espinosa - Rila Fukushima 2015 The image above is inspired by three looks; the red top comes from her appearance in the MFLO – All I want is you music video, the skirt comes from her Yukio costume in The Wolverine and below is the picture we took from comic con! Rila Fukashima and I at may 2015 comic convention
