Adobe Illustrator vector sketch of Supergirl.

Software: Adobe Illustrator
Tools: Pen tool, blend tool, gradient tool, transparency/layer settings.

I first did a hand-drawn pencil rough of the basic form and then redrew it in Illustrator based on that sketch.

I fixed a couple mistakes in the earlier work-in-progress postings. I originally drew her belt buckle backwards. Oops. That's what happens when I draw too late at night.

This is my first time drawing a character in Illustrator that has blonde hair. It's a lot easier to fake black or dark hair because it isn't as noticeable if it isn't right. It took a lot longer to do blonde hair so that I liked it. When I was all done I also tried an easy trick to make it look a little more realistic and less vectorry. I copied the entire head of hair a couple times at half-tone and pasted it just a tiny bit off center to add just a bit more texture and to get a little bit of a blurring effect on the hair.

This is the recent (2000-2011) version of the character Kara Zor-El from DC Comics.
