POWER GIRL: Maiden of The Sky by Eddy-Shinjuku POWER GIRL: Maiden of The Sky by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing, Illustration and Photoshop Post-processing; 18hours +/-

:bulletblue: 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.

:bulletblue: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.

:bulletblue: 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;p Hope to hear your interpretations.

Lovely, absolutely lovely, she really feels like a "super hero" instead of a...happy little slutty girl in almost no clothing posing like many draw her...sorry that’s a lot of what I see sadly. But THIS is really cool, the coloring is perfect and the way the whole picture comes to together in this really dynamic pose of hers is fantastic! It is stuff like this that inspires me to draw more.
Me ,being all weird about anatomy, makes me think that the way the back foot is a little odd looking but even though I would normally comment on that as a bad thing it does not seem to bring the picture down at all. The feathers fit in and give it even more "depth" to this already many-layered picture. (The perspective seems just right and the picture is well balanced)
Overall, great, “Maiden of The Sky” really seems fitting for this piece as well.
Only thing that I would even consider pointing out would be the feet but like I said, it does not seem to bother me and I am sure most people would not either.
What do you think?

I am not an artist. But when I see something this beautiful, I feel I have to offer my sincere appreciation for a piece of artwork that I could never create but truly admire.

This is in a class of sheer beauty, only one other artist on dA touches me like this and he is :iconisikol:. The rich ethereal background, the heroine's flowing hair and her gentle outreach to calm the obviously frightened dove. Even her near supplicant pose, as to show to the dove she will not harm her.

Her dress and manner reminds me of one of God's angels. This artist has real talent and potential.

I love the pink/purple hues throughout this heavenly pic. The dove is used several times in the Bible for hope and peace. PG looks very angelic and your soft coloring tones look amazing and her body detail is gorgeous. I do like how her boots have trasitioned to violet amongs the bright colors around her.
It's breathtaking for sure:love:

I LOVE THIS PIECE! It's absolutely astonishing! All too often do people emphasize her voluptuousness and nothing else. She's not just some ditzy blonde with big breasts and I think that's where it begins and ends with most people. Beautiful work! I love it! I want more!

This seems to be my trend in art portrayal lately ;p

Of course, I'm super glad you checking out my other art as well, good timing too because I'm on this 'mission' to create something ambitious in the realm of fanart since the start of this year, hope to keep you inspired. :nod:

TQ! :w00t:

This is lovely and very peaceful, like she's enjoying the moment, maybe she's escaping from something just to relax.
I think in your last art works you are telling histories, doing it more interesting.
Just curious, what is inspiring you lately?

My new year resolution is to create something deep and meaningful in fanart; so I carefully thought of the story in the art and relating it to real human aspects :nod:
In short, I try to portray the characters like a real person. I'm inspired by the Director who created the Batman movies where he made the Batman world realistic.

Yes, it's as if she flew high enough to reach the heavens and greeted by an angel in an avatar of a white dove :nod:
The upcoming Superman movie inspiration took me on a different direction than the typically 'pin-up' and fetish Power Girl arts; she deserves something more respectful once a while. And this comes from a guy who have no issue with those kind of stuff lol

Anyways, plentiful of thanks for dropping by and took the time to view this artwork, cheers! XD
