I like the effect of this lineart better than the color, it capture the retro feel so much more.

Of course it's amazing either way. :P

Wow. One of the few linearts I've seen than does not in any way require color. This piece is perfect the way it is.

Man, that is some seriously impressive inking/black and white placement/technique in general. I usually use nibs myself, though every so often I try and batter a brush to my will.

I have a question... Do you use any white ink, or paint, or gel pen, or scratch the board with an exacto -- any way of making things white? As nice as it is to try and make things right the first time, I'm always looking for ways to be able to work back and forth when I need to. What do you use (or are you just that perfect)? : P

No, I use white calligraphy ink to go back in and correct mistakes, and do sone white-on-black drawing.

I use the Winsor-Newton brand. It works best if you pour out an ounce or so into an inkwell (I use bottlecaps from Diet Coke!) and let it sit for a little bit, thicken up.

Absolutely gorgeous, but that's pretty consistent in your work. :3

I was wonder though: How do you always know EXACTLY where to put that shine on costumes? In all of your pieces the highlights always seems so perfect and I can't seem to figure out how you always nail it. Any tips?

AdamHughes Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2009
I just look at the real world, see how light plays off of human anatomy... After a while, you get a feel for it.
A tip: a shine on a costume is essentially the same thing as a reflection of a light in a mirror. The only difference is that the human form is a lot curvier and shapelier that a flat mirror. The trick is: figure out where your lighting is coming from, and then the point on the figure where the light source is reflected, for example the curve of Catwoman's breast. OK, now: every other shape on her body will reflect the same light source. The thing is, find the exact spot on all those shapes (arms, legs, head, etc) that matches the spot on her breast that is cathing the reflection.

Here's a cood practice....

Look at a couple of pool balls on a billiard table. See how the light sources illuminating the table are reflecting on the surface of all the balls, and pretty much identically? That because they are all the same shape, and are lit by the same lights. Now, but an exually reflectinve object, but of different shape, next to one of the balls. A glass of beer (which is a cylindar) or a cermaic bowl turned upside-down. Any shpae will do. Not how the lights refelcted on the balls are also reflected on the new objects, but in different ways.

That's the first step tp figuring it all out...

She looks like Audrey Hepburn in a hot way <3

Did you intend for her to look a bit like Audrey? 'Cos she has Audrey Hepburn's eye shapes and pert nose, perfectly

I am tempted on buying, though it's mainly for the corps Ring promotion going on.

Still good freak cover and well I wonder what reaction is gonna be when finds out (if happens) Selina's heart was once already removed.

Damn you Adam, this is so cool it's knucking futs!!

With a sable-hair brush you say, have ever attempted to ink a piece digitally before?
Just curious because I do all my inking digitally, with the right settings I can achieve a nice brush line.

Awesome as always sir.
~Cheers.

I tried inking digitally once. It's clean, easy, and fun...
... and the death of original art sales.
Artists need to eat, and pay their mortgage, and for time immemorial, art sales have paid the bills.

This is yet another masterpiece Adam! I love the way you play with the black and whites in your drawings. And Catwoman gives you the perfect occasion to do so considering her black leather costume; and now the zombies in the darkness behind her.Beautiful!!
