Betsy Braddock Vs Betsy Braddock - Art Vs Cosplay

Yesterday I posted a nice piece of art by Nick Law of Betsy Braddock. I kept looking at it thinking there's something familiar about it, which prompted a search of any Betsy material I'd posted so far.

In 2012 I posted photo's of a great Cosplay by the lovely 'Gillykins' posing as Betsy Braddock in pink. This is obviously the inspiration for Nick Laws piece of art. I've put the two photo's side by side to show the similarities between the two. Every artist has a muse...


Both are very good, and both are forms of art, but which is the better? the original cosplay, or the copied, enhanced, digital art?

Betsy Braddock by Nick Law

Here's a great piece of art by Nick Law (NickLaw-Artes) featuring our Betsy, posted in his DeviantArt gallery. He's titled it 'Psylocke', then goes on to say 'This is Psylocke I love. No, I do not like the Ninja version.'.. I hear you brother, and totally agree with you.

As far as I'm concerned anything pre-ninja isn't Psylocke, just Betsy Braddock. The whole Psylocke body-swap thing happened, then she became Psylocke.

Anyway here's the art...

ElvenBrit Updated Profile Photo

Thought I'd tweak my profile picture a bit, just for fun, with a Captain Britain theme in mind.

Excalibur by xcub

Spotted this piece of Excalibur art on DeviantArt by a 'Digital Artist' who posts under the name 'xcub (Psi-Man)'. A nice mash-up featuring the original line-up in their original costumes with a few added members for good measure. I like the idea of Betsy Braddock being a member of the team, nice.

Betsy Braddock by Izzy World

I've been a tad bit busy of late, hence the lack of updates on my Blog, but service will now be resumed once more, starting with this wonderful piece of Betsy Braddock art.

I recently drew an alternative cover for an online comic called Defenders UK, which I've featured on here several times. As way of thanks, the author/artist, (and friend of mine) of this comic asked me who I would like in return. After much pondering I chose our dear old Betsy, but in her early guise. I'm not a big fan of Psylocke (shock, horror!), I much prefer the original English rose that is, or was.



For his muse Izzy used the actress Amber Anderson, who I'd not heard of, but a quick Google image search and I can see why he chose her, good choice.

Alas I can't reveal my art just yet, but will be able to in the spring of 2016 when issue three of Defenders UK is scheduled to be released.
