Gotham Gears II: Poison Ivy by ChasingArtwork Gotham Gears II: Poison Ivy by ChasingArtwork
Ivy produces a unique, self replicating nano virus within. The nanobot design is a hybrid of her own custom model and an ancient (thought lost) molecule structure known as "Chlorophyll". 

This nano swarm secretes initially as a green liquid, quickly building itself into a spanning networks of tendrils, then vine structures, and eventually more complex constructs. These growths range from harmless spiral petals of colour (purpose unknown) to large, monstrous constructs, complete with defensive/grabbing appendages.
This network of structured nanobot growth is known as her "Garden"

• Ivy's "Garden" directly connects to her main processor- the larger her garden spans, the more powerful her neural net.
• Ivy has a direct link with anything grown from the 
Chlorophyll virus. She is conscious and has full control over her Garden. 
• Ivy is also able to produce a short range collective of nano spores, close proximity has been known to cause certain systems malfunctions, leaving the target susceptible to suggestion. 
• Direct contact is rumoured to cause complete system shutdown. (Ivy refers to this direct contact as a "Kiss")

• If Ivy stays in one location for too long, the neural net/garden becomes too vast and complex, and so she must take root to properly connect. It is very difficult for her to move once this rooting has occurred- if she is forced to uproot, she must completely disconnect from her "Garden". This process is apparently very painful and taxing to Ivy.  
• Ivy, and the Chlorophyll virus needs access to sunlight in order to function- prolonged darkness will eventually render them inert.  
• Ivy is incredibly possessive and protective of Garden, any outside or damage or interference sends her into a blind rage. 
• Without a Garden network, Ivy is unable to focus for long periods of time, becomes disoriented and eventually weak. Very frail when disconnected.

Hope you like her! was going for a Empress/ scary Mother nature/Kerrigan kinda look. Ivy is one of the biggest and baddest in the Gotham Gears universe, and I think she was my fav to design so far. 

For the rest of the series:

Lineup 2 is just Ivy and Scarecrow so far, more on the way.

Geez, you just explained how plants grow in a post-apocaliptic way, not to mention the "lost" Clorophyll molecule. Nice!

Alright I think I've absorbed enough of your awesome artwork to guess a possible timeline for this whole affair...

In an alternate timeline or universe, some kind of event causes the death of a large chunk of heroes all over the world. Ultron and possibly Tony Stark take the necessary measure to become somewhat like "gods" of the mechanized heroes and isolate themselves from most of the world.A unknown creator builds/experiments with a large selection of automatons of varying build.Eventually,these mechanical constructs develop technology that mimics fallen heroes and villains and some of them like the Joker,Ivy and, Scarecrow robots even take materials and chemicals that belong to their original counterparts while fighting for justice or wreaking havoc... 

I'm not sure if I'm remotely close, but this is still awesome anyways! Keep it up!

god damn your designs are cool. you should make one of Red X from teen titans, that guy is one of my favorite DC villains ever. just a robot that strives only to help himself using technology that resembles something that batman would make.

,,ancient (thought lost) molecule structure known as ,,Clorophyll"" ?

When does the ,,Gotham Gears" time line even occurres ?

Empress, yes. Kerrigan, definitely. Love the feel she has. She's always had the nature of a queen in control to me.

Your work impresses me every time I see it, I would love to see a Harley Quinn, then you can have the Gotham Sirens in a series. Absolutely fantastic work.
CyanSoul Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Truly amazing! :) I absolutely love the direction you chose for Ivy's design. I think that the Empress/scary Mother Nature/Kerrigan look (as you yourself put it) suits Ivy perfectly. Keep up the good work!

I am eagerly awaiting more characters from the Batman-universe. I have my fingers crossed that Harley Quinn is going to be included in the second lineup. ;)

Xavius-Windsong Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
since you mentioned her... I hope you do a robots-style version of the Zerg. That would look really cool

Inf ac,t if you think you're up to it, doing a reversal where the Zerg are feral 'bots and the Protoss are purely organic... that would be neat.
ChasingArtwork Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
They are so badass already, that would be a tall order :p
Xavius-Windsong Featured By Owner Edited Jan 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
so, you do the reversal.

Creepy, robotic Zerg

Organic, flowing Protoss

More on the way? AWESOME!

I really like what you did with a robotic Poison Ivy; a lot of people might think that robots and plant life would be a counterintuitive concept, but that's hardly true. You really showed it here; she looks amazing and has this downright awesome alien look, which fits very well with how damn weird plants would be to a mechanical civilization.

There's a fascinating implication here that this world in Gotham Gears (And possibly that of Auto Avengers; not sure if they're in the same world or not but that would be AWESOME) has no plant life, at least that chlorophyll was thought lost.

Her abilities are a very cool imagining of Poison Ivy's abilities rendered into mechanical terms. The emphasis on the Garden is a very interesting and fun twist on it, and I particularly like the bit about her having to take root and such being painful for her to end.
