Hawkgirl 2015 by AdamTupper
Hawkgirl 2015
Brand-new! I was super happy with the 2011 version of Hawkgirl (…) but that was 4 years ago. Much like the recent Supergirl redo, if enough time has past I like to revisit images I've done, adding in the evolution of my style and work. 2015's Hawkgirl is definitely more dynamic, and fits in with Supergirl who is also looking to the skies.

'Daddy's Lil Monster'
Brand-new Harley for 2015. I based the design off the costume and hair from the new Suicide Squad flick. I changed a few things, removed some tattoos, added a few new ones, gave her the Arkham City tattoo, and added red in her hair and eye as opposed to the pink Margo Robbie is sporting in the set photos.

Chibi Cap, Peg and Dum - Troublemakers
This piece was a commission by one friend for another friend. The sketches for the designs came out so good I'll be doing final versions of them and adding them to my portfolio for conventions in time for FanExpo in August.
Supergirl - 2005 vs. 2015 by AdamTupper
Supergirl - 2005 vs. 2015
I realized that 10 years ago I had started work on the Supergirls series. I figured watchers, followers and the like would enjoy seeing the progression in my art since then.

The first Supergirl (which I loved at the time) was slightly off-model, had a bit too long a torso and although her face was unique, I used far too much of the original model in the piece and didn't translate it as well as I'd have liked. Back in 2005 I was trying to merge the design of comics with realism. Although that is definitely still a part of the process with these pieces, I've learned to be a lot more detail oriented with the shading and hair, add in a lot more elements of my own creation, re-pose the scene as necessary and be far more dynamic than just a simple pose straight-on. 

The great thing about art is how much we learn from it at our own pace. I look at these two images side by side and it's obvious where the evolution comes from. I've had a great deal of influence from not just images and my own drive to be the best I can be, but it's really been other artists that have driven me to produce not only more work but the best work I can possibly deliver.

As a side note, back in 2005 I was only drawing part-time, wasn't selling anywhere and was working full-time at a bank. If only I could go back in time and tell 2005 Adam he'd end up being a professional artist...he'd probably just be happy to know he wasn't going to spend 10 more years working for a financial institution.
