Storm Sunday: Adam Hughes, Part III

Storm by Adam Hughes Adam Hughes is often called a modern master for his depiction of beautiful women and this post is just one more testament to his artistic abilities!  Whether he’s rocking the covers on DC Comics (like Catwoman, Power Girl or Wonder Woman),  commemorating the many girlfriends of Spider-Man or illustrating pop culture icons (like She-Ra, Chun Li or Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Adam Hughes brings the goods!

The above incredible image of Storm is from Adam’s Deviant Art site and the note from Allison Sohn reads, “Another piece from Adam’s upcoming sketchbook. The amazing thing, I think, about this piece is that there is no real color used. Adam rendered this one with both warm and cool gray scale markers. Together, they read like desaturated color.”

Barry Windsor-Smith Week: Deathmate

Barry Windsor-Smith - Valiant Original ART Deathmate Card 34 Solar
Let’s look beyond the history and final product of the misfired and misconceived project known as Deathmate.  Instead, let us celebrate Barry Windsor-Smith’s artistic involvement with these amazing images of Void and Solar.

I remember being super excited when this project came out because Void (that’s the lady in silver above) was (and still is) my favorite WildC.A.T.  She’s shiny like the Silver Surfer, Russian like the Black Widow and she can teleport.  I was in love (still am).  She also had a really cool (in)action figure and a foil cover.
