Supergirl 41


And here is the cover for Supergirl 41.

For whatever reason, the DC heroes always seem to beg for very saturated, pure colors. When I have tried to pull things back, it always looks odd to me, even though I often shy away from super-saturated colors in my other work. So once again, Supergirl and Superwoman are soaked with red and blue.

Something else to keep in mind about the covers I post here is that they are designed for print on a comic book, and as a result, they will never look as bright and shiny in the real world as they do on a glowing computer display. I have learned over the years to push the levels about 10% further than I think I should while working on the computer. By the time it sees print, it usually looks about right. Early on in my career, I was often frustrated that my printed work always seemed washed-out compared to what I was staring at in Photoshop. I didn't stop to consider the properties and limitations of ink on paper, just one potential pitfall of working digitally.

I suppose I could knock the saturation back just a touch on the JPEG's I post here to better approximate the printed look, or better yet, you folks can go buy the books!

Thanks for looking!

Supergirl and Superwoman are cool, no question, but take them out and you still have a great image that makes me feel like I'm flying as well.

I admire the fact that you draw Supergirl as though she was ...well, a girl. Not just another posing superbabe.
great line as always. did you modify an actual aerial photo for the landscape?

Keep them saturated like Fast Food. The coloring looks awesome!

These Supergirl covers you've been doing have been absolutely incredible, and this one is no exception.
I'm glad you go with the saturated colors on these characters. It might look garish on another creator's art, but your style has such a beautiful sense of weight and realism (albeit a stylized one) that it makes those pure colors work.
