FABLES 100 by AdamHughes FABLES 100 by AdamHughes
Year: 2010
Client: DC Comics/Vertigo
Media: Pencil & PITT pen on Strathmore Drawing paper, Adobe Photoshop CS2 colors

On sale today, December 8th!

This is my one-page contribution to FABLES #100. FABLES is one of the consistently best comics around, and reaching its 100th issue is a big deal.

I was asked by creator Bill Willingham to participate, and I was honored! For anyone unfamiliar with the book, every once in a while they field questions about the characters from the fans, and answer them in story form, called BURNING QUESTIONS! My burning question concerns Snow White and her husband, Bigby Wolf (as in, the Big Bad Wolf or fairy tale fame). What are they saying? You'll have to check out the comic, for now!

Be your own best friend and start reading FABLES!


Check out a detail of Snow White here:

I remember this! Man was it ever hilarious. You did an awesome job of catching Bigby's fury at that particular question!
Trey3rd Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015
I think Bigby is saying I WANT YOU TO READ OUR COMIC! The old Uncle Sam Point

It's either dad pointing at me for poor grades at school via the mail and mom telling him I got accepted to Harvard.  Or, Wolfy is suspicious that me, the milkman/exterminator, has been coming onto his wife, Snowy :)

WOW I knew that was you when I saw the page! I'm guessing that that's Ambrose on the corner? ;)

Your talents with inking are mind-blowing. Loving the contrast between the man up front and the girl in the background.

WOW! Its crazy!
They used to have covers made by James Jean and now you?!
Comics aside, they got the best cover artists the industry have!
What now? Alex Ross is next?!
Really good depiction of the series man!
bunnyluvstiger Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011
I saw it!!! I'm holding the book right now. This is amazing ^-^ Your seriously lucky to have done this
bunnyluvstiger Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011
It's such a shame what happens to Frau Totenkinder, even though she comes back, she refuses to fight anymore :(
NegraGolondrina Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
*spoiler* I think it's the happiest thing that happens to her in the entire saga: she finds true love with a good man. I can see that as a reason for not wanting to fight any more
stabiro Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
Great work! This may be a somewhat late comment, but I recently started reading Fables and I love it! Searched DeviantArt for Fables related art and BAM! - found this one! I'm pleasantly surprised :)
zoroblind69 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Hobbyist Artist

I'm relatively new to Fables, but I am seriously lovin' this =D Your style is so groovy! (By the way, is it weird how she kind of reminds me of Zooey Deschanel?)
thelearningcurv Featured By Owner May 6, 2011
wow, this is a really cool concept, I heard that fables was a good book but I never realized how good.... thnaks for sharing this!
serke Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2011
Whoops, accidentally spoiled myself on that marriage. I just got done reading the first 2 volumes and I loved it. It's a happy spoiler though because I've been rooting for Wolf. :-P
I love this, by the way, great colors. And White's outfit is awesome.
Marie-Ange-the-Celt Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You are so lucky to have had that honour ! Congrats ! :D

I love it :D
scope237 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011
The fact that you are actually a Fables fan just makes this piece SO much better!

You need to draw more Fables! Can we bug Shelly Bond about you drawing an entire issue or two?

Any character you'd really like to draw from the series? I think you'd rock Cinderella!
SimiusVeganArt Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
I love the expression of the woman!!
Do you use real reference to make that perfect perspective?
Sory for bad english...
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
No; it's just a simple rectangular room in 3-point perspective. It's not that tough to draw.
SimiusVeganArt Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
Niceee!!! Thanks for reply
KarlyNoelleAbreu Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Aww I love your take on Bigby, he's great. Your Snow White is good too, but a little more... happy than I generally picture her.
Good job all the way around though!
sprucetree Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2011
How do you do the detail on the face-whiskers (on Wolfman)? They seem so real!
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2011
It's just PITT pen (markers) with a little Black colored pencil for texture...
electriclite Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Oddly enough the first thing this reminded me of was a scene from that old Neil Jordan film, "The Company of Wolves".

Excellent either way.
Cyrus911 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2011
She looks a lot like Katy Perry lol
Bodhipuff Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011
Is that you and Alison as kids?
WhiteWolffie Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
Love it, and how you rendered the kids! ^.^
Djeroon Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I wonder why bigby is so angry? He's scaring his kid! ;-) Wow, issue 100 already. I tend to lose track of numbering cause i get the trades, but it is still a cool milestone! Glad you're part of it!
HanieMohd Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
YES!! you have a drawing for FABLES!!! absolutely love it :D
artybel Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Fables is one of my favourite comics, and I'm soooo hanging out to see Fables 100! And you're in it?!!! Sweet!!! :)
jacksprat Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
One of the most amazing crazy ass issues out there. I'm not going to reveal any details for those who have not yet read it, but da-yumn, I was not expecting what happened much at all. Bill Willingham likes to make things so freakin complicated and then tie things up in ways you would never think of. Great page, Adam. Very funny, Snow was hilarious.
supermarioART Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome style and concept!Great!;-)

I love how you drew Bigby. Captured his rage perfectly. :)
hclark Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't checked the book but Bigby looks like he's saying 'GET THE CAMERA OUT OF MY FACE!"
snailbutter Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010
