So lately I have been wondering, "how can I get my art style to the point that I could do covers for DC comics". I figure, what better way than to keep practicing and start drawing DC characters.

For this piece, I tired to add more motion in the character than I usually do. I played my hand at atmospheric perspective, and I used a dark border stroke to try and highlight the character more.

Any way I will add a poll to ask the following question, but is this getting closer to the quality and style you would expect to see on professional comics/would you buy a copy with a cover similar to this? Thanks for your help!

You certainly have the style going for you. I agree with the others, her musculature on her midsection is incredible. There's something about either her hands or her head that's too small/too big in proportion; something just looks a little off to me, but all in all, great pose, and great job with the coloring. Your style has quite the professional look to it! ^^

If you want my opinion, this looks so excellent in terms of muscular detail and shadow effects that you'd make a good option for DC to hire to do covers, especially for the comic book issues that are set in mainstream DC continuity. Plus, it's a good balance between how you drew Supergirl's abs and how you mangaed to keep her as attractive looking as possible.

10/10 score.

Well I'd figure I'd throw in my first comment. I think is this very well draw, colored, and shaded. Her ab mucsles are sexy yet scary XD.

Looks very Good Quality wise, but style wise i think you suffer from what many artist(self included) do in that it looks like Artemis cosplaying supergirl. I'd look into practicing how to step outside of your comfort zone when it comes to your female faces.
