A Visit From Galena by rachelillustrates A Visit From Galena by rachelillustrates
The long-awaited second picture of my Teen Titans OC, Galena, who won third place at the last contest at Here she is with future Terra and Raven, all in civvies (because drawing superheroes in civvies is fun!). I originally planned on putting them in their costumes and showing Galena using her powers, but that just didn't pan out. I had fun with this one anyway. I'm really pleased with Raven's facial expression, and I think they all look pretty good. I thinned Terra out again to match her body type on the show *coughanorexiccough*, but I promise you she is eating and healthy ^^; At least she's got a BBW best friend now to balance her out ;p

Terra and Raven (C) DC
Galena (C) me :mwahaha:

Thanks so much! I try to keep far away from the anorexia-like drawings, since its scary enough that those body types are canonized through the show. Glad you appreciate it :)

I love Raven's skin tone!

I wonder what Galena's blushing about...

Like me the Ravenīs make up, but you donīt think that she looks a little fatter that how she is really?:confused:

Okay, on that, I don't consider Raven fat here at all, and yes, she looks bigger than she is on the show, but I feel justified as the show makes every character look like they have an eating disorder. I like to draw people looking healthy. And if you still want it to make sense, this is Raven in the future, so you can say she gained some weight.

Thanks for liking the make-up though :)

I'm not particularly fond of the Titans, as the show goes through phases of brilliant writing and retarded writing (Just my opinion! Don't shoot!). You've done them justice, though.

Raven and Terra filled out a little... they looked like 12-year-olds in the show anyway.

No, I agree with you that there were some very BAD episodes, but I still love it. I think the Raven/Terra conflictyness helps ;p

And of course thanks. Making anorexic-looking cartoons look healthier makes me happy.

I thought they were all, like, nine... until my little brother pointed out to me that the title was "TEEN Titans." And I said, "Buhwah?"

:giggle: Yeah, I think the only thing that marks them as any older are Starfire's boobs and Raven's hips.

Master-Pirate Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2006
And her hips are pretty narrow for a teenager. But whatever.

Maybe having superpowers to channel those calories into has an adverse affect on their health.

I much agree, Raven's expression is very lovely. I should do more "teeth-in-lips" mouths on my girls. They always look good on yours! And Galena is very beautiful! Excellent lovely job here!

.... not to be vulgar but ... the way all their expressions are ..... did Galena (all blushed) just cut one?


And ..... what are 'civvies'?

:iconrachelillustrates:
rachelillustrates Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2006  Professional Traditional Artist
Hehehehe, thank you muchly. And to answer your questions, Galena is blushing because she has a crush on Terra, and Terra's kinda oblivious to this, while Raven has noticed and is wary of it. "Civvies" is the term for civilian clothes, so non-costume.

Thank you :blushes: Glad you noticed the details. Terra's necklace was inspired by the comb she has in the series. And of course, I had to goth Raven out, even though in my version of the future she's "White Raven." She just looks so cool all darkly and such ;p

I think "Bulemic" would apply more, seein as how she did eat a lot, specially in the first episode. Of course, when they found her she was living in a cave, so you could go by the explanation that she was nearly starved, but you'd think she'd thicken out or at least have more bone mass.

Woot for the good picture. Raven is captured in a perfect "Ahh...Terra >.>;" moment.

And I wasn't thinking about the specifics/reality of what eating disorder Terra would have had (though that'd make an interesting fanfiction). It was supposed to be a joke.

Anorexic indeed, she looked like you could snap her in half with your bare hands.

Beautiful picture as always, love the finer details, especially their eyes, Raven's fishnet, Galena's blush... all of it. It's beautiful. I see Terra's cute her hair short... I like it.

Superheroines in civvies rule.

Well, Terra was revived (theoretically) at the end of the season, and Raven's costume has only been white a few times.
