Supergirl: Time for a Vacation by Spacecowboytv Supergirl: Time for a Vacation by Spacecowboytv
Here's another quickie I did this week.  I wanted to do more musculature study as well as look at a new way to shade reflective clothing.  As I'm sure everyone here on DA has, I looked at some great work from Artgerm and how he can almost paint a whole second scene in the reflective parts of armor he draws.  I tried a very minimal attempt on her top.  As for the final piece, I am a little disappointed at the muscles, I think its too much.  But every piece has something that we can learn from.  Since her hair is longer here, maybe Kara is a bit older.  I mean heck she does become Powergirl.  As usual, I'd love to hear your thoughts, did I over do it?

I am so loving this pic-I love it when Supergirl dress up in a bikini (or any kind of swimwear) and looks sexy in it! Great work once again.

BTW, if I commissioned you to do it, could you do a picture of Supergirl in exotic wear as shown in this 1969 issue of Action Comics? (solex2001.blogspot.ca/2011/04/…

Interesting request.  I'm not taking commissions right now but I'd consider doing this any way because I like the outfit.  That said could be a while I have a lot of work I'm doing ahead of time.  So I guess no guarantees.  Thanks for the comments though!  Very much appreciated!

Yeah, wow, this is a great job. I love me a lady with some muscles on her, especially on the tummy. You did a damn fine job here.

Well I do like the picture and it is really awesome to see so much work in it.

But here are my two thoughts-

One I think the background will sit better if the horizon line would be lowered slightly. I do like that the shield is drawn in the sand.

Second I think the problem with the muscle is volume. Nothing is wrong with the way or how much they are defined in my opinion. But my guess is that the arm isn't wide (or thick whichever term you prefer) enough for the level of definition. And if you want to run with the older bit she be a bit thicker all around.

I really do love the hair details though. You are getting some lovely volume and definition there.

Wow, I'm glad you said that about the hair, I have been trying a simplified method that is getting more volume to it.  I think you are right about the shading though.  I want to try a new one with much softer shading.

:) I'm glad you tried it on the hair! It worked wonderfully! 
Go ahead and try. Sounds like you would be happier with it. May the experiments continue! :D

Damn man you always do such good Supergirls.  How about doing Raven from Teen Titans some time?

Just a cute illustration of Kara. I do think that you perhaps could have scaled back on the muscle definition, but other that it's really nice.

Looking good once again! The only place the muscles kinda stand out as being somewhat off are the arms. Now she's flexing so they'd be more pronounced, but perhaps the linework among the shading for her bicep/tricep makes it look too harsh. There's soft shading without lines in her midsection and legs, so I think it would be effective without the lines. It still looks fantastic though! She's looking pretty hot (you know, because I'm sure it's warm there ;) )

A good point, I always seem to bounce between doing lines thick and or not doing them at all.  I think I want to try not doing lines more and more

Too much muscles? Really? Don't think so, man. Don't really do.

If anything, well, they fit quite well. Especially if it's something like a slightly older Kara but not yet Power Girl.

I don't think the muscles are too much.  I like to see a bit of muscle on Kara.  So I like how this turned out.
