Set The Mood: Zatanna



This week I’m all about Zatanna, one of my favorite magic users in the DC Universe! I won’t geek out too much here past the fact that I’m a huge fan of every aspect of her design, so I’ve been very excited to finally feature her on a board of her own. :magic_wand: :sparkles:

I also initially tried this with a splash of purple/dark red, but ended up keeping the palette to warm greys for that mysterious, classic magician look. I used her straight-bangs hairstyle for the same reason, and also a little bit out of personal bias :eyes: (do you guys have a Zanny hairstyle preference?)


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.

For now, let’s also stick to posting :warning: ONE BOARD PER PERSON (PER TOPIC)! :warning:


I have heen a fan of Zatanna ever since I was a kid (I discovered her in a backup story in Supergirl). She’s quite possibly my favorite superheroine. Anyway, for my moodboard I decided to focus on her status as a glamorous stage magician. There aren’t thst many superheroes who work in the fine arts


Love it!! :smile: I really love that Smallville cameo too – she looked spot on to the comic, so that was a great addition to your board!


Serinda Swan was perfect for the role!



Very nice. I especially love the bunny :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::rabbit2:
