Matthew made the mistake of mentioning Adam Hughes in a passing conversation last night, which got me thinking about all the wonderful art he’s dished out over the years. Today, it’s a look at Tinkerbell in our Art Appreciation Moment of the Day.

I always assume when someone askes ME to draw a beloved Disney character, they are not looking for a drawing that sticks to the model sheets…

  1. Because it’s only natural for pixies to have giant breasts that will fall out of their scantily clothed leaf dress…

    Nevertheless, I really appreciate the detail in the face and the talent in the gray tone even if I hold some (many) reservations about the depiction of the female body.

  2. Why does every female have to be DD+ and oversexed? Why?

    Yes, yes, it sells and it’s drawn by men for men. Unimpressed.

    The artistic ability itself is quite good, as I would expect from Hughes. A shame it’s hard to focus on that.

    • I completely agree. He’s a great artist, but it’s sad that the talent is used to promote this hypersexualized image of women that’s so incredibly common most people (the comic book target audience of men) don’t even notice it anymore.
