I am thrilled at how creative and fun these covers are!
I applaud the rejection of a straight cheese shot trying to sell the issues with T&A and just having the ladies being super heroines, yet still drawn beautifully and powerfully.
the action figure cover was an instant favorite of mine!

I think I get the concept... Defenders would be like the opposite of the Avengers. Quite clever making them the opposite sex, too.

Do you know if it's pronounced "hyppoLIGHTa" "hyppoLEETa" or "hyppoLITa"?

Wow!

Man, I love the drapery, and the harpy on her bronze thorax! Great differentiation of materials there, and I like the red accents. The pose is pretty awesome too, cocky and badass.

I love your artwork. There is so much that I could say about the character and did. But, I erased it so not to insult your hardwork on this piece. I will save it for the comic shop when I pick up my books.

Well, technically Hippolyta's not new character in the Marvel Universe (she was bad guy previously: [link]) but she's new at the hero game. Yes, I'm nerding it up. lol :)

I am looking forward to getting into this series and seeing how good it is. I like getting pleasantly surprised. Awesome cover work, for sure at least. I particularly like that winged creature on the armor. Is that a harpy?

In between doing all these amazing covers for Marvel, what else keeps you busy? Any sequential comic art on the horizon?

I'd be alright with that... just lose the white girl dreads. Yuck. Otherwise the costume looks great, especially dig the mask!

prince-benjy Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
right well the dreads can work I just feel like "white girl dreads" is something people use to make a character look tougher.....

I'd agree with that. As a personal preference I like the short hair approach for the same effect on women, and three o' clock shadow for men. For the design over all I feel the dreads are really jarring, they don't fit the aesthetic. While I realize it's a pretty fantastical fiction we are all enjoying (and they are selling) as a rule elements of truth go a long way toward selling a design. So long dreads on a character who is supposed to be a strong melee fighter is really impractical. In this instance in particular it would have been nice to see some short hair for a bit of team variety as well.

I agree with you but i really just feel that the Dreads don't fit especially with who she is, and with a name like Hippolyta I expect something more grecian
