Supergirl by AdamHughes Supergirl by AdamHughes
One of my successful covers. My tribute to pinup king Gil Elvgren!

My PLAN was that I wanted Supergirl to look like a pretty girl sitting on the rocks by the sea under a starry sky, and only afterwards you notice that she is riding a meteor into the atmosphere.

I think her face turned out really adorable, but I really love the cape and the texture on the rocks.

This is probably my favourite, or one of my favourite, of your pieces - she just looks so adorably charming, and the whole daydreaming-girl vs. superheroine-riding-a-meteor contrast is simultaneously badass and darling. ♥

Please let me know if this becomes available as a print. I have the comic but this deserves framing and hanging on the wall!!

Ha ha... Don't be surprised if a "Ride the Meteor" attraction turns up at Six Flags. Of course they'll swear they never saw this picture... or ever heard of DeviantArt.
