just a simple powergirl by nebezial just a simple powergirl by nebezial
its just absurd how my concentration is all over the place with my nerdouts. here is the real kicker, i dont even read superhero comics.

reason is simple. they are never self contained and since its not simple to get them here... catching everything a comic i might like ties in is damn near impossible

i love superhero costumes tho, no denying that, they are so much fun to design., balancing derail versus silhouette. function versus aesthetic

and in this case, a tongue in cheek joke punchine with elegance

honestly, when i saw her new costume i really disliked it. they jjust took the easy way out and neutered writers from alot of humorous potential.

and this is coming from the guy who always says i dont like oversexualisation.

there is a time and place and a purpose for everything. when a superhero is about to have sex, that is a very human moment and should be treated as such.

this is where you bring the sex appeal. but having it overshadow the hero in a pointless way that obviously is counter productive...just annoys me XD

sex appeal for me works by the rule of contrast... it should be balanced. a short but intense sex scene is believable and purposeful if the hero afterwards puts on a reasonable and functional suit.

it can look good, it can even look sexy, but it should serve a functional puspose

aand that why i left the boobie hole XD

no, joking aside, its a characteristic element that was allways there, and when you think power girl, you have a certain.... busting what, girls have breasts.. some guys do too! XD

if you have been reading to this point you must be wondering.. the hell is wrong with this guy, he is making absolutely no sense!!!

i am kinda sleepy XD

I will never understand how people think that showing a little cleavage or having a bit of risque in a character is bad or in anyway reduces said characters previous actions or abilities.
Yes Power Girls Boob Window is pure fanservice and its obvious but it doesn't lessen her accomplishments or her character. She could still take on an army of alien single handedly, hold up multiple buildings the size of castle and would never let any man make her feel inferior just because she's a women.
I know plenty of bad female characters but nearly all of them are "appropriately" dressed, the reason for their badness was based purely on their character (as in they would be constantly lost without a man to help them) but I could NEVER see Power Girl being like that.
I guess what I'm saying is judge the character, not the uniform.
Unless you're Starfire in Red Hood and The Outlaws I mean Jesus fucking Christ! Theres fanservice and theres her!!

i dunno, something about the red legs i don't like...

Truly stunning.  Your eye for design and your art ability are both fabulous. Somehow, you kept the iconography but exchanged the sexism for class, which I have never seen anywhere else. My only complaint is that this isn't the official outfit- DC needs to pay you whatever it takes to use your design.

I have no idea who Power Girl is ... I saw this and I thought, "This would make a great outfit for a Canadian born superhero. No blue, and no stars." Yea, I'm Canadian. ;)

Power Girl looks so AWESOME!!! :heart:

I really wish DC would use some of your designs. Especially with Powergirl it seems her...blessings can be severely distracting but you always find a way to keep it classy.

I had found this picture on a google image search one day and absolutely loved it. I didn't realize until today that this was done by you. I don't read Powergirl as I haven't found many superhero comic books that I like the story line in. I do however love Aphrodite IX and Artifacts so I was incredibly excited to discover you are the artist behind what is my favorite version of Powergirl's suit. Thanks for being awesome and please continue making awesome art. :)

Awesome design. One only detail: no leggins.
Cyclops1991 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I like this design, too. But the red leggings should be blue.

I love that design! :D

The ultimate comics "catfight" for me would be Power Girl vs Super Girl :P Maybe one of the gals turns evil, like Superman sometimes tends to.

I don't care how strong and proud she is, i'd slap her ass as hard as i can if i ever stumbled across her! :P
nebezial Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
in that moment you would realize that it feels like slapping a brick wall as your bones break  due to the strenght of the impact. some ligament damage very likely XD
Nils-Iver Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Nah, i can't slap that hard while the tendons are elastic enough to shake the shock off. She's jelly just like the rest of us, it's just her bones being brick hard and her material very hard to rip apart, she aint stone or else she wouldn't even be able to hold a fork without deforming it.

Really brilliant work here. Can't say she's my favorite DC character (that goes to Batman), but she's pretty awesome :D

i like this design a lot
Kerevon Featured By Owner May 29, 2013
I think what I love best about this is... well, okay, I love ALL of it best, but one of the most interesting elements is that you're the first person I've ever seen make the boobie-hole actually work as a design element. Usually it's very, VERY obviously just a boob window. Here, it still shows cleavage but in a manner that, while sexy, isn't just obvious fanservice.

I like how this version doesn't look like a stripper! I can really dig this version of Powergirl, and take her seriously.
Miss-Mary-Murder Featured By Owner May 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Makes perfect sense. Women have breasts, and breasts can be sexy; but that's not all they're good for, nor is it the only purpose they serve. Our society need to learn how to appreciate that women have breasts without dehumanizing people.
iwa-kid Featured By Owner May 7, 2013
So nice. I really love the design. It has a decent amount of sex appeal while looking totally kick ass. I think the red tights were a nice design call.
Ziggyman Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Professional General Artist
Nice choices in design.
ArtTraveller77 Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Coolest Powergirl suit I've seen. Most of the time she's overly sexualized. The suit still looks like her but better.
Sitara-LeotaStock Featured By Owner May 4, 2013
Nice! Still sexy, but it doesn't look like she's going to just bust right out when she punches someone!
dragoneyesai Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
The funniest part is, her name abbreviates to PG.

EdgedWeapon Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Student Artist
Heh, I agree. I've always thought of powergirl as being silly, lighthearted and a little fanservicey. "The window" should be used to show that, despite being large-breasted and attractive, she can still kick lots of ass. As long as they cover it with a clear piece of plastic or something to defeat the archenemy of every flying hero - the LAWS of AERODYNAMICS! (DUN DUN DUNNNN!) XD

Your design of power girl puts the actual redesign to shame.
iaconpoint Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
Nothing simple about this. It's light years beyond the New 52 version.

Coming from someone who usually can't stand Power Girls design, I really love this redesign :)

Here was what I was talking about, just mock-up stuff
tomp1210 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
Would it be ok if I used a similar design for a justice league fanposter? Because this is great! It's non profit etc. just for fun.

Way better than DC's shitty costume.

Good one Sir :) and your rant made perfect sense to me...
Nighten-Gail Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
THIS IS FABULOUS. I love it. It stays true to the character, while yet, making her more modest. If I hadn't already made so much of my powergirl costume already, I may have asked to use this design. ;; <3 IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. And that mouth is to die for... you rock, sir.
draw2much Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is probably one of THE best Power Girl redesigns I've ever seen. I really like how her color and hole are positions. Her sleeves are just... wow... I'm partial to that design so I'm just totally loving it. I kind feel like the belt gets away with the stream lined look of the midsection and I think the tights would be better white instead of red. But those are minor complaints. There's just SO MUCH about this outfit that I love.

Thank you so much for taking the time to draw this!
hitface77 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
DC should've hired you to redesign power girls costume because this is awesome.
RamaII Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012
Very well done. Would have loved to seen the new outfit look more like what you did here

Nicely done.
