For much of last year, I was redesigning several characters from the DC Universe. I managed to finish the Justice League, Injustice League, Justice League International, Teen Titans and the Secret Six as well as several Wonder Woman villains. One character I left off was Power Girl. This didn't go unnoticed. She was one of the characters that was most inquired about. Having been drawing a lot of X-Men lately I decided to switch things up and throw a DC character into the mix. Who did it end up being? Power Girl of course!
I had this vision of Power Girl in a skirt. I figured it would be elegant and feminine. Now, let me say this... I don't really like flying heroines in skirts. It's silly and impractical. However, for strictly aesthetic reasons I decided to see what it would look like on ol' PG here. Working around that, I wanted to make the costume appear super modern. This mean adding more detail than is usual for her. Also, to compensate the skin exposed by the skirt I decided to toss some thigh-his onto her. I'm not really a proponent for the boob window and I think it's kind of silly but I kept it anyway. I decided to shape it to the same appearance as the S-shield though. Also, I wanted to make her appear tougher too. I didn't draw her to look like a sex bomb... as evidenced by her larger frame and stern expression. The hairstyle was inspired by one Cameron Diaz wore.
Enjoy! Comments are always welcome.
