Power Girl by AdamHughes Power Girl by AdamHughes
My Sistine Chapel. Probably one of my most successful covers, if not the toppermost of the poppermost.

Still, not 100% what I was shooting for. I was going for making the cover look like Power Girl was laying on a bed with white comforter and plaid sheets if you viewded it from a distance, and then as you got closer you realized she was actually 10,000 feet in the air.

So this is your cover.  Wow, nice work.  I have this issues somewhere in my comic collection and always admired the cover.  It's like PG hired one of the great renaissance artists from the past to do a painting of her in the air.  Like you say, a Sistine Chapel piece :)

Adam, Me thinks this will be my favorite Powergirl piece ever! Simply wonderful - It really captures the sensuality and playfulness of PG and at the same time, there is a certain sadness in her eyes that gives a real depth and hint of tragedy to her. This is the bar to top in MHO. Keep up the wonderful work!

My all time favorite comic art work. Period.
The look on PG's face, the cloud shading, the cape looks 3D and flowing off the page, and the jet is the icing on a truly inspired piece of work.

No offense but god I'm so tired of companies penalizing their customer base due to a few douche bags trying to steal from them. And now ARTISTS are doing to people who want to view their artwork what the companies are doing now with their consumers? Sigh.

Being an artist by trade myself, I can't blame Adam or anyone else (including publishers) for this practice - as Lex Luthor said in the 1978 Superman movie, "People are no damn good!"

If your afraid of your artwork being stolen then don't bother uploading your art to Deviant Art!

Not so much worried about my art being stolen, but Adam's stuff is PURE GOLD and worth MEGA BUCKS! Whereas my stuff, on the otherhand, is white metal at best and if folks wish to swipe it then I feel somewhat validated. In the end though, I still agree with Lex Luthor's sentiments as a sweeping generalization.

Getting back to your original issue:

DC Comics sold/sells some of Adam's famed covers in large posters. I believe Adam's site, justsayah.com, sells them as well. If you really want to see it enlarged, I suggest you buy the poster. It'd help Adam too.

One of the most fabulous covers I've ever seen in my life, simple idea but realized in a way only you can do: simply amazing; not to mention the subject per se (PG is the best heroine to me).
I love your work and I hope to learn something new every time I look at your art, because it shines in its own light. You are really one of the greatest artist in the world, a real master.

Greetings from Italy.
