Indy Card, Final Version by AdamHughes Indy Card, Final Version by AdamHughes
Here's the final version of that card. Not a masterpiece, but fun. And I thought it was one of my better Harrison Ford likenesses... It takes place in 1930, so I was trying to draw a 31 year-old Indy.

This scene is from Dark Horse Comics' digest INDIANA JONES ADVENTURES, VOL. I (May, 2008). I figured everyone was going to draw scenes from the movies, I decided to take a different tack. The girl in the image is English, not Swedish; she's an archeologist (or archaeologist, as the Brits would write it) from the British Museum.

Read the comic; it's a damn good Indy yarn!

I suppose I'm going to get hit for this one, but... He reminds me of Shia LaBeouf... It's the eyes, really. Like Harrison Ford/ Shia LaBeouf combined. Great work regardless

Yeah, I'm in 'classic American Illustartion' mode these days. Any babe that has to have a retro feel is going tp have echoes of Ms. Hepburn, my favorite retro babe.

Thank for your interest!

I'd also like to add that there will never be another woman like miss Hepburn.

There is another woman like Hepburn; Jennifer Love Hewitt. I'm kidding of course but I've heard that said once and I almost choked. Hepburn was one of a kind.

Good lord, the lighting must have been a BIATCH to do in this. It's fantastic! Yay for younger Indy who has yet to encounter nuclear explosions!

Lovely glow on the gal's noggin. I really like the detail shot here better than the full version. It seems better framed and really pops.

great piece Adam....really awesome. I love the fact that the likenesses feel right...but it's got a nice feeling of not being overly referenced....kinda playful, cute and cartoony...but with all the 'realism' you'd want in something like this.

great colors too!

I sometimes wonder if I should be inspired by your ability to capture an image or depressed by your ability to capture an image... It's work like this that reminds me of just how far I have to go just to sharpen your pencils....

As always, AMAZING work, you are one of my favorite artists bar none.

This really is a great likeness of Indi, perhaps one of your best. The lovely lass is quite stunning as well, and the light and shadows at play work with the piece tremendously. I like this honestly much better than your puzzle piece, which I know suffered from rust and pain. It has my appreciation for that.

I have to say, I've been a fan of your work for more years than I want to mention, and it's just great to be able to actually say that to you directly. Put our art up in the same places. (You can laugh, it's okay.) Thanks for putting pencil to paper, you've furthered some of us along.

I'll have to agree with everyone- wonderful colors over an already solid pencil drawing (I love that you can still feel the linework underneath. It is a very good Indy likeness!
Ha ha, this could almost pass for a happy holidays card, what with the snow, the overall golden atmosphere and the christmas skull in the back...
Ok, maybe not the christmas skull.

You nailed the younger Ford likeness, not surprisingly. He even has a certain nervousness about him that an older more seasoned Indy might not. Dang, I'd like to get to know that Swedish snow bunny better! ;) Everything about this rocks. Great to have you back in action!
