Set The Mood: The Gardener


Meet Bella Garten – renowned botanical genius, nationally wanted ecoterrorist … and an integral chapter from the early career of one Pamela Isley.

Bella’s love for Pamela stems from a shared dream of environmental friendliness across the globe, even to the point of extraordinary and immoral measures. In an effort to act on both these passions, Bella takes the matter of preserving Mother Nature into her own hands, cultivating a new lifeform that will bend humanity to the whim of The Gardener.

I found Bella to be an extremely intriguing character by the end of this comic. Questionable as she is, I’d certainly love to see a lot more of her!

I also wonder if Batman will heed her warning … :eyes:


Hold up, Static. What the heck is a moodboard?
Putting it simply, moodboards are a series of graphics that are used as a way of capturing the atmosphere surrounding a particular subject to briefly immerse the viewer into the “mood” of said subject. Kind of like collages! Which is why there’s no right or wrong way to make one. You could make one entirely out of relevant quotes, or organize one by a certain color palette, or just fill it up with pics of things that represent the subject point-blank. It’s your board!

How do I make a moodboard? How do I post it here?
Personally, I find the easiest way to make moodboards is through Pinterest. For those who aren’t familiar with the site, it’s a hub for images/videos that can be added to “boards” you create based on personal interests or whatever you’re particularly searching for. Many people use it for the sole purpose of creating moodboards, so there’s plenty of stuff to work with there if you’re not inclined to create one from scratch.

That said, you’re also free to make one through any editing program if you don’t wanna go about making a whole Pinterest account! Just paste the graphic(s) here as you would any other image. If you’re doing a Pinterest board, feel free to drop the link to it, or provide a preview screenshot!

And finally, for those who don’t wanna do either of those things but still want to participate, you’re more than welcome to create a moodboard of your own here by posting any pictures you may find relevant and just sort of talking about your thought process on them. (Ex. post a photo of masks and talk about how that may relate to “Crazy” Jane.) Otherwise, feel free to just openly discuss your thoughts on the topic at hand.

As always, remember to keep all contents of this thread respective of the Forum Guidelines. This includes doing your civil duties to keep a check on profanity, keep things SFW, and remain respectful towards one another’s work. For now, let’s also stick to posting :warning: ONE BOARD PER PERSON (PER TOPIC)! :warning:



Great work!

Love the additional shot of Batman all tangled up in there too!


Thanks so much @staticshocks!
