Power Girl 'Sketch' by AdamHughes Power Girl 'Sketch' by AdamHughes
Another 'sketch' for the gentleman who waited too many years for it, so he got the top-shelf treatment. On a strange note, it felt weird to do a Power Girl drawing and NOT have it be silly or goofy. I wonder why Power Girl and Batgirl strike me as characters best suited for humor?

Pencil, Pitt pen, Gray Copic marker, and calligraphy ink on 11"X14" Bristol Drawing paper.

They seem best suited for humour because of the way they look.   Their over idealized physicality, and their histories.   Supergirl also strikes me the same way.  I'm curious, since I'll probably never ever experience it for myself, how do you do sketches at con's and then post some of them here?  Is it that you carry a scanner with you, or do you keep the works and post the finished art on to the purchaser/client later?
I live in South Africa, so finding your stuff is rare enough, and I'll never afford to get to a con in the US or elsewhere, but at least I can see your beautiful work here.

Now that's Power Girl.  Wow.  You really captured her inner beauty and not just her physical comeliness.  She's got a certain confidence that other superheroes don't, and that comes across here.

Awesome job, glad you went with super-girl's face instead of an individual. As probably already said, you did her face the correct way.

The thing is, you copied Supergirl's face. Which is really good because she's her clone, most people give Powergirl her own face, forgeting that her and Kara look practically the same.

Very nicely done.There are few who have a gift in drawing the female form so beautifully.

Outstanding! I love the tonal values you get with these tools! It has all the impact of a final coloring -without the actual color :P Are all those highlights really paper-space, or is there some kind of white pigment involved?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010
There's white paint being used, surely.

I like the horizontal lines, adds a slightly different flavor.

okay this is fantastic quality
love the shading, highlights and its surreal looking in the face almost photo quality realism
my only complaint
is with the character herself im a healthy redblooded american male
and i gotta say uber breasted superheroes women/girls gets old
i argue that you did a fantastic job and at the very least the flow works
but due to how gargantuan her breasts are they're almost held tight beachballs i can see her being much for a fight with those immovable objects in the way
and i grant shes like kryptonian(clone) and infused with yellow sun energy soo shes gonna be pretty resilient age wise and being invulnerable
but if you look at how massive they are the one on the viewers left looks almost as big as most skulls or heads of the average person or bigger its impossible to tell

i personally wouldn't mind seeing another rendition of power-girl built for fighting meaning realistic mammary gland scaling i.e not much larger than a D or DD at Moooossstttttt
even C or Larger B's would work and fit better and not get in the way during a fight

Power Girl is one of the hottest women in the DC Universe. It's always her beauty and breasts she is light-hearted about:heart:

I finally took possession of this piece from my good friend, who, thankfully, was raised with super-hero ethics, at Heroes Con 2010 last week. Although I was happy to give you my gratitude in-person last Saturday, words can't really express how delighted I am for not only the piece of artwork, but the thought and time you put into the artwork. Again, thank you, Adam, thank you very much.

I am wondering, is any of your BW work (this for example) open for coloration?

Because in that case I'd like to give it a try...
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
People are free to color whatever they want for practice or portfolio pieces, as long as I am credited as the artist of the line art.

They are not free to sell what they've done, or try to pass the entire piece off as their own work.

LordDaroth Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for this info. Is this for only the images from this DA account, or any -nonpirate- source of the internet?

I ask this because you've done some really awesome SW pic, and those are not in this site...
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2010
It applies to my artwork, anywhere that you find it. DA, the Internet, floating down the street.
My artwork, just like anyone else's property, isn't to be reused or repurposed without permission and/or compensation.

A lot of people think sexy girls or beautiful ones are goofs or silly. So this kind of girls often develop two attitudes : distant, or humoristic.

I think Power Girl is often seen as a funny character for this reason. She's not really distant, she's sympathetic, and her big bust make us turn things in joke. The same way we can meet a girl like her in real life, and force ourself to look at her in the eyes, to give her respect. It can be a little embarrassing for both, and often, a kind of humoristic word or joke may come at this moment, to destress everyone. It's a kind of contract and a way to tell "ok, we understand ourselves, it's allright, no problem with that."

I think Power Girl would frown and make a sarcastic joke at this moment. "Hey, look at my super eyes, pal, and don't come too close, I don't want to hurt you with my super tits".... So I think it's natural to see her as a funny character. But the writers can write something serious for her, however :)

It is a great pleasure to see your art here, Mister Hughes. You're my favourite Wonder Woman illustrator :)
