The Many Faces of Selina Kyle by AdamHughes The Many Faces of Selina Kyle by AdamHughes
I miss drawing Selina. It sure was fun with her; lots of different moods. She's the quintessential femme fatale.

And YES, I'm aware the she resembles Audrey Hepburn, LOL.

My personal inspiration for Selina Kyle is Ms. Hepburn, circa 1954-57. My favorite face ever.

My personal inspirational cocktail for Catwoman is:

70% young Audrey Hepburn

20% Liz Taylor from CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF

10% Trinity from the first MATRIX film

This design has always been one of my favorites, if not my very favorite, for Selina Kyle. She is simply so beautiful in this guise.

The woman Batman fell in love with? This is exactly what she would look like. Witty, sultry, and fierce. Amazing!

Absolutely stunning mix (of course) and beautiful style. Yours, not the ladies'. Though they had serious style.
hanzo66 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2011
I do admire how you make her look almost photo-realistic without crossing into the Uncanny Valley. Impressive.

Definitely a fan of your Catwoman cocktail recipe.
BlackheartK Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
well... I vote for Winona Ryder to play Selina in whatever Batman movie they put into production next. I see her face in here.
gforrydesign Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010  Professional General Artist
I thought I could see some Audrey Tautou in the mixture, too. Or it could just be my imagination. (Kinda subjective to the viewer... like clouds in that sense...)
paintedmenagerie Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2010
each and every face is quite priceless
Speenu Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
after watching "Inception" this weekend, it occurred to me that Marion Cotillard would make a good Catwoman
mcherry1 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2010
I love how you made the distinction of Trinity from the FIRST Matrix movie in your description.
artybel Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Ahhh! It explains so much! I think you do the best catwoman ever! If they ever try to put catwoman in another movie I hope they get an actress based on the characteristics you just described :)

your capacity of drawing especially the facial expressions is amazing... i just love them!!
Any chance to see you in Italy someday?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner May 16, 2010
Hopefully! I've been to Italy once, many years ago, and I loved the experience. I hope to return someday.

Perfect combination. Sounds like my dream woman!
Hazneliel Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2010
Hello, She is amazing. Did you invented the woman´s gestures and characteristics or some comic drawer did? If you did, well, she is fantastic.

I want to ask your permision to use her as the inspiration of a 3D render I want to make.

Her eyes are blue right?

Do You use mouse or a tablet for this Mr Hugues?

I live in Arnhem where Audrey was born, my girlfriend lives close to a bust they made of her. Every time I pass I can't believe how the friggin missed the whole point, it's pretty ugly:

AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2010
Gah! Yeah, that doesn't really look like her much at all...
natephant Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i was just about to ask if you based her on Audrey Hepburn, question answered.
baldricc Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2010
If I could favorite this twice, I would!
wonderinaliceland Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009
AUDREY, of course! And you know who else? She reminds me a bit of Zooey Deschanel, especially in the very top right and very bottom left.
k-m94 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009   Writer
You're extremely talented, and I positively adore your Audrey Hepburn- like Catwoman. She's long been one of my favourite comicbook heroes. (Catwoman, I mean, not Audrey Hepburn.)
Keep up the fantastic art! :)
aRecycledHeart Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2009
I really have to say I love how you draw your muse for Selina Kyle/Catwoman from Audrey Hepburn & Elizabeth Taylor. Not only are they my two favorites of all time, but they capture the whole persona somewhat of Catwoman in the sense that those two actresses had that constant allure as though they knew something you didn't. Thus why your version of Catwoman will always be my favorite.
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009
Thank you very much!
