This was a fun warmup piece to do, especially in light of my history as the original inker on Gen 13. Fairchild was always one of my absolute favorite characters (and still is). You just can't go wrong with an amazonian goddess who's blissfully unaware of how hot she is.

I'm don't know what the character is like these days and I don't think I want to. I'll always prefer the original.

My favorite Gen 13 character, really wish there was a way I could either read the comics or see the tv show.

You're right about where the characters are now.

You don't wanna know.

This is really beautiful. I love the expression on her face and the way you've managed to blend "strong" and "feminine" so masterfully. That's something that many people can't seem to pull off, so seeing it done right always catches my eye! Awesome job. :D

Can't believe this was just a "fun warmup"! Color me jealous. ;)

I think this piece captures Fairchild very well. You can already get a feel of who's she like with out any description.

I like this painting. I always liked Fairchild, but I liked her best as Supergirl. I wonder if she kept that Kryptonian costume.

After Campbell left Gen 13, I grew rather tired of the more realistic depictions of Fairchild that were done. I guess I was predisposed to Fairchild being this tall. slightly muscular girl who seemed to have plenty of extra muscle and energy that didn't really bulk her up.

That extra bulk to Fairchild that some artists added later on didn't make her look as appealing...it looked almost like most guys would be apprehensive of approaching her, given that she almost looked like she could snap your neck.

I think you did a great job finding a pretty good balance: she's got the muscles, but she still exudes that hot look kind of hidden behind an almost shy smile on her face. Kind of like the little girl who hasn't quite let puberty (or Gen-Factor activation 'bonuses') sink into her head.

Btw, I also yearn for the good ol' days. The one thing that attracted me to Gen13 was it was based in San Diego. I loved recognizing street names and places I'd see on vacation there.

Thanks! You totally nailed what I was going for with this drawing of her. Like Campbell, I think Adam Hughes really understood Fairchild very well.

The original still is and always will be the best! And you are right, you don't want to know...

Powerful, beautiful, and yet not over-the-top. If I had to change one thing, I would have zoomed ina little more and focused more on her and not have sucha large background.

Good work.

I agree, the original Fairchild was definitely better. And this is one of my favorite interpretations of her!
