I like this one.

I don't know what it is but the thumb doesn't look right. It's the knuckle wrinkles there's too many.


The rest of it is gorgeous but that thumb blows it for me; My eye goes straight to it.

take a look at your own thumb (I just did) and it wrinkles just as much, if not more. I think he nailed it...

Just a quick question. I know it was in your FAQ from long ago, but i'm wondering. Are you still using a mouse to paint your work? Thanks. This is fantastic, as usual.

SO! I went to one of the local bars that I frequent, and was browsing through their ever-changing collection of books and random junk they keep in the corner for people to occupy themselves while I was waiting for a friend, and suddenly I saw a volume of Fairest, and recognized the cover. I was all like, "OH HELL YEAH!! I know that artist! That's Muddafrickin Adam Hughes!" and picked it up and before I read it, went and flipped through the book for all the covers. Good stuff, as always!

I just simply adore this piece! I love the way you drew and painted her. I also love that she is looking into a reflective surface and using her cold breath. Simply amazing. I actually wasnt into Fable until i saw this image and i was like, "Damn, maybe i should read this."

Mr. Hughes, you are seriously a huge inspiration! Guys like you, Alex Ross, Jim Lee, and a plethora of others are huge influences on my art!
