TRDL 2015 Series, No. 27 – Power Girl [TRDL Redesign]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Power Girl. Again, this was a jam from approximately 13 months ago. I have a large process library of projects waiting for completion, and I just hit the ones I’m in the mood for on any given evening. I’ve tried to draw Power Girl’s in-canon looks many times, always failing. I can’t gracefully get around the décolletage. That said, while my various redesigns over the years have been hit and miss, I liked the lines and callbacks on this one. The loincloth matching the flow of the cape was a design nod to some femininity to offset her powerful form, and the colors and imagery is referencing her main look over the years. Less ‘boob window’ here, but hey. Again, when I draw PG I tend to take the approach of a power-based strength rather than being overly muscular (as opposed to a character like She-Hulk)…
