The effect you great on the metal ornamentation is mind boggling. Unfortunately, I take offense at excessive mind bogglement. Please,in the future, try to keep your mind boggeltry to more reasonable levels.

In all seriousness.. when you sit down for a day of convention sketching, do you appreciate odder more obscure character requests or are they a pain? If it's very obscure is it better to bring a reference pic? (Please note that I am not categorizing Deja Thoris as obscure)

BIG BIG FAN, Mr. Hughes.

This is how she is described in the novel, the most beautiful woman in the universe, completely nude, wearing nothing more but jewels and ornaments. Do you find it offensive? well, certainly martians didn't!

Don't worry. Dejah Thoris uses to be depicted with clothes or jewels covering her attributes, presumably because the society considers it offensive, so when someone depicts her the way it is meant to be, I profusely applaud it and defend it.

Who you think draws the best (I'm not saying sexy or perfect) women in the comic's world? By now I'm between you, Frank Cho and the one in the Coraline's dreams album (can't remember the name)

Great illustration! What comic or graphic novel is this character?
Reply

AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009
She's the titular character from Edgar Rice Burroughs' novel A PRINCESS OF MARS, and the 10 sequels, all published in the early part of the 20th Century.
