Starfire Statue Design by AdamHughes Starfire Statue Design by AdamHughes
Year: 2010
Client: DC Comics/ DC Direct
Media: Pencil, PITT Pen and COPIC marker on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

This is a statue design for the Covergirls of the DCU statue line from DC Direct, on display for the first time at ToyFair in NYC. I guess it should be available for pre-order soon.

As for the concept... I thought Starfire holding her ridiculously huge head of hair like it's the train of a dress would be fun.

You are so good with the Copics. It almost looks like water color. Have you ever messed around with water colors?

When I was a kid, I thought Starfire was the prettiest of all heroines. Thank you for keeping her that way and for making that ridiculous hair look great! I've got the statue on pre-order at my local comic shop!

Admittedly, I like Starfire with more fiery-colored hair, but I love this either way! I love the way her skin tone came out!

When you say "...then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

What lights? Do you mean 'highlights'?

I colorize the gray tones using PS.

Yes, yes, I mean highlights. Thank you! And, do you remember what number of marker you used for the skin?

How large is the paper you used? 11 x 17 or the traditional 11 x 14?

I really like this, your type of rendering and coloring. You do the rendering in copic.... I just can't wrap my head around how much you understand markers...

Awesome art!

:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011
11 X 17. :-)

The markers just take practice. There are many who understand them much better than me.
