Justice League - Black Canary Redesign by Femmes-Fatales Justice League - Black Canary Redesign by Femmes-Fatales
Justice League redesigns, part 8 of 12.

Having asked you all pick your favourite Justice League members from a selective list, Black Canary settled in the middle. Out of 92 votes, she only received six.

There's nothing cooler than a secret agent and that's precisely what Agent Dinah Lance used to be. She travelled the globe carrying out covert missions for the government until an assignment went awry. This led to her resignation but it didn't manage to hamper her desire to do good in the world. She continued to go on freelance missions (with her Birds of Prey) but received semi-steady paycheques from a series of novels inspired by her time as a secret agent. Settling into New York City's Chelsea neighbourhood, Dinah Lance has become close friends with Broadway legend Zatanna Zatara and the two have since become members of the Justice League. As Black Canary, she continues to kick ass but manages to squeeze in time for some playful flirting with teammate Green Arrow.

I've redesigned Black Canary before (as seen here: [link] and since I liked that design I didn't want to do a total redo. I view this largely as an update. I wanted the fishnet to be less prominent and to have it be mostly reference. As such, the costume itself become more of a spy suit. The problem with Black Canary has always been that she looks like a stripper in her most iconic costume so it's all about finding a happy medium where she still looks sexy but not like she looks like she's going to be riding a pole rather than bashing heads in. I also restyled her hair to reflect a more sensible style and gave her a mask. I'm very happy with the design here.

Enjoy!

The other League redesigns can be found in my gallery. Check 'em out! :)

Very Cool, Very Cool Indeed!!! If I recall correctly it was the "Golden Age" Black Canary, Dinah's Mother, who originally wore a Mask. Though I always wondered why no one ever thought to give Dinah one, is it really safe to go running around fighting Crime with your FACE SHOWING? LOL :)

Thanks! Anything in particular you really like?

Yes, the original Black Canary wore the mask. The second never bothered with one. She did wear a wig for a while before dyeing her hair officially to blond. The wig was part of the disguise.

I think I really like the combination of Yellow & Black. For being called "Black Canary" I can't seem to remember any of her Costumes having Yellow on them, almost always Black & sometimes even Blue but never Yellow! ;)

Actually, every costume Black Canary has worn since the mid-'90s has featured yellow or gold on it. :)

It's all good. You're probably more familiar with adaptations rather than the source texts, right?

I'm a huge Fan of DC when it comes to both Comics & Adaptations though I will admit I don't follow Black Canary as much as I do others! ;)

Black Canary is one of my personal favorites. Either way, I'm glad you liked my designs for her and Ivy. If you get the chance, feel free to look at my other redesigns. :)
