ImaginFX 67 Cover by AdamHughes ImaginFX 67 Cover by AdamHughes
Year: 2011
Client: Imagine FX magazine
Media: Media: Pencil, PITT Pen and COPIC marker on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

On sale in the United Kingdom on February 8th! It will be available in North America a few weeks afterwards...

Here's the link for the digital version! [link]

A comic-centric issue, issue 67 contains (among other things) a tutorial on how I colored this piece. I had a limited amount of space, so I focused on the digital aspects of the process (it being a magazine about digital graphics).

Not to worry! Right here on DA, I will post a step-by-step about the rendering of the actual physical art, including tools, pitcures, and tips about techniques. So, basically, you get the whole story if you keep an eye on my DA gallery and also find a copy of the issue (which is also available as a digital download; GOOGLE it).

Check out how I drew the art before I colored it: [link]

Simply awesome, Mr. Hughes!!!
captain-vodka Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013
Very lovely but I can't help but wonder why you didn't make the gloves as smooth as the boots or goggle straps.
Either way I really do love it. (:
fernandodesenho Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013

This is awesome, great mag too.
I used to HATE your art back in the days!!
I don't know if it was the expressions you used or your style...
Years later I rediscovered your art online and was blown away.
Few artists progress like you have once they are in the industry,
not that you care what I think...
Now I am amazed by every piece you do! I aspire to hone my skills like you and
be a name in the industry to inspire others.
O.K. I'll quit whining now...AG

gemmillw Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
Huge fan of your work, and of you publishing all the steps for this piece. Thankyou so much!
Catwomans-stitches Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011
I got this (two copies) when it came out over here in the UK on the eighth - it's just fantastic!!! I realy would love to see you drawing Catwoman again. The tutorial was fantastic and now I know WHY you love the nose LOL :)
I'd love to see you draw a few covers for Gotham City Sirens, and I'd really love to meet you and Alishon in the UK. We're having our first ever Comic-con in London this year - is there any chance you gys could fit us in next year? I know you need an invite - so I'm inviting you, you can stay at mine LOL :) (you just have to graffiti over all my walls with your beautiful gals)
Laiferr Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Ooh if Adam Hughes came to a comic con in the UK I would go all the way down South for it seriously!
Adel5 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
... too easy to fave it....
Hellboyj Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
That's probably the most perfect Catwoman I've seen. Period. And the composition certainly fits the character. As always, amazing, amazing stuff!
Jordi-Domingo Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
Great job!
jurneejakes Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Looking forward to Anne Hathaway as Chris Nolan's Catwoman. Any thoughts on that final product?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011
Well, as soon as I see teh final product, I'll let you know.

As it stands, I think she's a fine choice. Like Christian Bale or Michael Caine, I don't think she's definitive, but she's definitely interesting.
jurneejakes Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Was only curious if you had your own version of what the new Catwoman might look like is all. =)
