Ah that is from Boris Vallejo (below, the original without the excellent modification).

Simply one of the best artists ever !

What would you do if a smiling supermodel offered you a ride in her flying SUV?

My Mac won't open that file. Says something is wrong with it. It's not a JPG as the extension claims.

You might want to make sure its safe. .

Didn't recognize that it was Boris' work. Forgot all about him, but I used to be a fan. That and of his wife, Julie, who was equally talented in a similar way. 

I was cruising around in some files that I hadn't looked at for many years and came across it. All kinds of stuff in there.

Here's another old image I dug up. Does anyone know who the artist is or what this was done for?  

Food for the imagination in any case...

The US military's latest weapon, still experimental, was a mega-watt combat laser. Designed to nearly instantly cut through 2" armor plate and slice attacking aircraft in half at a range of several miles, it was both compact and incredibly lethal.

So it was hardly a surprise when someone decided to try it on the Swedish woman who was sending ripples through every nuclear armed country on Earth. Being neutral Swedish, she refused to cooperate with NATO or with the Russians not to mention the Americans or Brits, and instead focused on damaging or destroying military aircraft which were capable of carrying nuclear weapons. Her methods were essentially an attack on several nations, and illegal as anything could be, but her results thrilled a lot of folks. 

Nobody knew where she came from, but everyone who'd tried to stop her had learned the hard way that she might as well have come from planet Krypton. Bullets were useless, and she picked up grenades and squeezed them in her hands so tightly they couldn't explode. Neither the police nor the military had much else to use against her. Until the DARPA folks offered up their fancy new laser. 

The CIA Covert Operations agents tracked her to a parking garage in California near the base where she'd just trashed several unbelievably expensive B2 bombers. She was starting to get out of a car when they fired on her, hoping to put an end to her once and for all. If they melted half the cars in the parking garage to slag, so be it. 

She seemed to be impressed, but unfortunately, their vaunted new super-weapon didn't work quite as well as they'd hoped:

Very cool images - thanks for posting!  I guess this is from the Shazam premiere party.

Why did they have to put what I assume is the actual weight on the weights?  Seems like a harmless conceit to put a crazy number on them and let everybody at the party pretend to be a superhero.  Also, a note for budding video makers: A weight that actually has a little "weight" to it will always play better than the ridiculous Styrofoam or (even worse) inflatable ones, provided your actress can handle it, as Vanessa seems to be doing.

Agreed... you gotta get a little strain going to make it look real. Nothing worse than an amateur photoshoot or video where the actress is obviously not flexing a muscle to perform feats of strength. But maybe that's another meme all on its own. Effortlessness. Doesn't work for me, though. 

As far as the marked weights go, they obviously weren't posing her for SWM.

As a content creator, I fully endorse this sentiment. One of the biggest challenges I run into on a regular basis is the impossibility of finding appropriately enormous weights. If I want to have them, more often than not I have to scale up a smaller weight... with the smaller numbers plainly displayed. A tool to allow me to change those numbers on the skins of the weights would be pure bliss for me. Heck, even a tool that would allow me to switch out the letter 'g' in "kg" with a 't'...

Sorry about the digression...

I agree that the pictures look great, but I'm with www1969: I want the weights to look properly superhuman. Don't pop my immersion bubble, please.

I totally agree but I don't mind on this occasion since these photos are just a party photo prop and not something that would be made for our interests, as Shadar indicated.  I would be annoyed if I bought a commission and they did this, but that obviously isn't the case here.  I am happy enough to use my imagination with these ladies.

Enji Night as Supergirl  (Might have been posted before, but figure it's worth seeing again.)



Her  Instagram

It is an homage to a Supergirl & LSH cover by Adam Hughes (BTW this is a nice run by Waid/Kitson even before Supergirl shows up.).



obligatory (This HAS been posted before but it's really fun).  Engji Night as Supergirl dancing to Happy.
