Over the years every single one of our favorite characters have been drawn by a whole menagerie of artists, unless of course your favorite character has appeared in only two issues (but then again I'd probably suggest you re-evaulate the meaning of 'favorite' if that's the case). But only a few of these talented men and women truly seem able to capture the essence and aestheticism needed to crate a defining portrayal of our favorite DC Superheroes, which led me to question which illustrator's artwork has left a lasting image on how any particular hero should be drawn by the adoring fans? Does Gary Frank draw a more definitive Superman than Phil Jimenez? Really it's all subjective but I think it'd be great to see what fans think makes for the best examples of how their favorite character should be drawn!
To start us off I thought I'd start with one of my favorite DC characters of all time - Hawkgirl! Even if the character has gone through a whole mess of reboots and continuity errors, I've still managed to find three artists who I think capture the perfect modern interpretation of my favorite Egyptian Queen/Thanagarian!
1. Stephen Sadowski (artwork pictured above)
2. Rag Morales
3. Nicola Scott
All three manage to capture her strength and feminity without resorting to cheesecake..plus they can draw some pretty badass wings.
So which three artists do you think drawn the most iconic interpretation of your favorite DC characters?
