Update: Reworked background as well as replaced the graffiti text with something more traditional.  You may notice that elements of the Anti-Life equation are on the pulpit and that a better sense of depth is created by layering the new elements.

First appearance: Mr.Miracle Vol.1 Nr.9 (August 1972)
Created by: Jack Kirby

Backstory:  It was the simplest task a Fury could have. Transport the cell of a prisoner to the temple of Glorious Godfrey for Sermon and Indoctrination.  Perhaps the wayward adopted son of Darkseid would finally be reigned in.  
Yet, here she was.  Big Barda, trained by Granny Goodness personally, honed to cruel perfection by Darkseid himself, bested by a man hardly half her size.  
She was impresses and intrigued by this rebel.  Would they meet again?

Notes:  While a lot of work went into Barda an equal amount of work (and more frustration) went into constructing Godfrey's temple and Apokolips outside.  Does the name Victor von Frankenstein mean anything?   Anyway my quest for clean edges and blended textures continues.  I really like the model in this but have no idea who she is.  her musculature was toned down (Believe it or not) and her breasts enhanced.

Thank you all for your encouragement and critiques. They are always appreciated. And JrMcD I see what you mean about the flatness of the armor.

I like...but her armor is a flat. If the future i would try and get more contrast between the edges and the rounded centers of the armor. Make sense?

But yeah, the whole scene is pretty good.

Mr. HM?
Ahm... this is something that people simply ignore and my deepest hope is that you are not going to be one of them: do not cut her knee off again. This is ugly. I know that several pics on the internet do that but, hey, they were made by stressed professionals with no time to do a better job. In the future, try to frame your model by specific areas like the waist or thorax or let the model intact!

But there are good things to say, of course!
You built a complex scenario, created a plot, made her costume! It's easy to perceive dedication here. I congratulate you for those efforts, sir.

Well done!

Edited notes: Congratulations! Much, much better, Mr. HM!

I thought about dong that OCP, but I went with handwriting because I wanted to look like hand sprayed graffiti. In the current Final Crisis mini series, most of the "Annoucements" from Darkseid are crudely spray painted. So that is the look I went with.

Looks very good, Hiss.

I only have a lttle nitpick: try using the text tool instead of writing yourself, there are really great fonts out there that make it look really cool, you can even play a bit with the blending mode for that look you want.
