Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing, Illustration and Photoshop Post-processing; 18hours +/-
Primarily inspired by the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, where things seems to be 'realistic' having Christopher Nolan had a hand in the making of the movie.
As for this artwork, I try not to alienate much from the fans and pertain the core spirit of Power Girl - the whimsical overall tone and high optimism attitude.
In a way, I made her looking more 'down to earth' and towards that modest 'girl next door' direction; I believe this allow for a more virtuous depiction due to the sense of purity.
Heaps of metaphors and symbolism here, though I will not spoon-feed and allow everyone to perceive this in their own accord. Btw how you like my magical bird of heavenly bliss?! LOL again symbolism, doves don't fly that high
Hope to hear your interpretations.CREDITS:
