Daughter Of Krypton by DouglasShuler Daughter Of Krypton by DouglasShuler
I started developing this image quite a while ago using a different version of Supergirl (with the red skirt). I struggled with the piece on several fronts, including different poses, several models of jumbo jet, and variations on the city below.

Then one night, as I was working it, I received notice that Michael Turner passed away, and the old version just didn't seem right anymore.

I've retooled the image to reflect the costume invented by Michael and it seems 'right' now.

I cheated on the hair - it's painted in Photoshop. I haven't found a 3D program yet that does fluid enough hair.

Fantastic picture!!!! I've been a Supergirl fan for a long time. I don't suppose you could make a poseable model of her?

I made my own in Poser. Beyond that, rigging a 3D model is beyond me.

great piece but it seems to me that she's about to punch the plain rather than save it

maybe open her hand?

I'm not a big fan of Digital Art,
But being a Supergirl Fan, I really liked this piece.

Kudos,

P.S. - What's a guy gotta do to get a girl's attention?
Blown up a planet! I asked Princess Leia the same question!

I love this picture. The glow of the fire on her right side, the playful flip of the skirt in the wind and the flow and movement of her hair. A lot of detail and effort that equals an A+ picture.
