Adam Hughes Baroness - Unused Art
Close Up Image
Adam Hughes created a piece of art dpeicting the Baroness for the cover of Devil's Due's America's Elite #17. Unfortunately, the piece was deemed too sexy by Hasbro; he reworked it but was denied again. The piece was scrapped altogether at that point.
However, Hughes sold a very limited number of prints of the unused piece in early 2007 at the Seattle Emerald City ComiCon. This print is pictured above.
Later, at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con International, he sold his first color sketchbook. One of the pages inside contains the unused second pass. The sketchbook was limited to 1,000 copies and all were signed by Adam on the cover.
