Hawkgirl is one of those characters who i think really benefitted from the JL cartoon series but DC didn't capitalize on in the right way. Instead of running with the ground work the writers from the show came up with they tried to reintroduce storyline threads from previous hawkgirl runs and wound up making the sound boring mistakes, when wound up again killing off any interest in the character and ultimately the character itself. I was actually hoping they'd use the shows character name and origin in the previous Hawkgirl series (prior to the new 52 stuff) they didnt but i did buy the softcover collection of the series.
My comic shop had this statue for a long time, and right when I was ready to buy her, someone had swooped in and taken her away. Now my collection isn't going to be complete without becoming much pricier.
*fave'd* ... Strangely, and unexpectedly, you show more of a sense of the wings being a part of her by having them wrap so closely to her back. (They would be, of course, even if they're not organic, as I think they ought to be.)
That may, in turn, have made the statue easier to fabricate, but it also makes her look like a more integrated being than most Hawkgirls. I never was partial to having the notion reinforced of her putting on her wings. This lovely take puts that idea far, far away.
And she should always have such a big, honking mace!
Your sketches and marker spot illustrations are outrageously good. I was wondering approximately how long a piece like this takes you. I know it varies from piece to piece so really, an approximation would more than just easily satisfy my curiosity :3
I like how her mask is up a bit so we can all see that cute smile underneath --- "There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live and too rare to die.”- Raoul Duke (“Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas”, 1998)
