Power Girl Issue 2 Cover

By AdamHughes
2K Favourites
This is my second POWER GIRL cover. As with the first one, these are variants; the book is actually being drawn by Amanda Conner and she rightfully gets the main cover.

This is one of those exercises in creativity to get the job done. The end of February was a tad nightmarish; being the shortest month of the year, I was closing on a house, and I had MegaCon to head off to the day after closing.

I needed to hand in a Power Girl cover before I left, and I needed it to look decent. There wasn't time for anything elaborate or full of backgrounds. One option is to do a rougher cover like the one I did for CATWOMAN 79. Looser inks, less rendering, but still throwing in a background full of details.

The other option is: do something designy and graphic. All I had time for was a nice shot of her standing there, so I thought it'd be eye-catching of the parts of her that are lit by direct lighting are kind of washed out, but she is standing in the shade of her own logo. My art director kinda liked the idea, so the end was result this quickie.

17" X 21" pencil & ink on Strathmore series 300 3-ply illustration board, with digital colors in Photoshop CS2.

I love how she floats on the white background. Her right arm has no edge. Beautiful!

I like how the light and shadows make her breast seem bigger than they are.

Seeing this, I seriously consider of petitioning DC to re-name her into something like:
"Heart-Attack Girl", or "GASP", or "OMG...irl", or "The Stun!", or "Spotlight", or "Eyesuphere-Girl", or "Men-Trap!"...
