Adam Hughes Statue Art

Adam Hughes has released the preview art for the soon to be released Poison Ivy statue. This statue is part of the Women of the DCU collection.

As usual, Hughes has done an amazing job on the art duties. I'm getting a certain Uma Thurman vibe from the face details. I can't say this is the best costume choice for Poison Ivy though. I think the gloves are a bit heavy while the high heeled shoes seem oddly dainty and plain. I mean reeeally. Who takes over the world in simple pumps? The hair is lovely but there's just too many leaves -- she's looks smothered. I'm not trying to be overly critical but this appears to be a mish-mash of various looks that don't quite gel. The colors of the Silver Age mixed with the tendril-like (leaves abound) nature of the Modern Age and a few nods to Uma Thurman.

I'm sure the final product will vary in a few ways. One thing is for sure -- I'd prefer a green skin Poison Ivy. The natural tone was already given to the Adam Hughes bust. Check out a larger preview here: Adam Hughes on Deviant Art.

UPDATE: Here is the actualized statue in all her glory. She's been streamlined a bit so the gloves aren't as bulky. They also toned down the leaves. Thankfully.
