Zatanna Zatara by ChapmanBaritone Zatanna Zatara by ChapmanBaritone
I've loved Ed Benes' work ever since his run on Gen13 and when I came across this image whilst researching my favorite DC character, Zatanna, I fell for it instantly. Everything about this piece just spoke to me and I knew that I would one day need to color it. Thanks to malfunctioning cable internet and a bushel of time one weekend, I accomplished my goal.

Lineart: Ed Benes
Colors: Yours Truly

Zatanna Zatara is a member of the Justice League, the daughter of the famous Action Comics character Zatara, and like her father has vast magical abilities that she channels through speaking her desires backwards.

Beautiful coloring work and very vibrant. I love ED Benes work as well and you have done a masterful job coloring Z like this. She's a gorgeous woman who got messed up in the new 52 shakeup.
I love this version of her:love:

I would be greatly honored if you would allow me to use this depiction of Zatanna in a slide show video I am working on. If you say yes I will put your name in the credits and put a link to your DA page in the description.

I love Zatanna. She is an amazing character, just so bubbly and friendly. I love how she speaks backwards to use her spells.

Zantanna! One of my fave Marvel characters!

This is really well rendered, and I like the highlights of the "magical" lights. :-D
