Originally when George Perez drew these two characters (Crisis on Infinite Earths is the only work I know of where he drew them both), he gave them more or less the same generic face he gives many of his female characters.

For the upcoming Worlds' Finest comic that he's currently drawing, Perez decided to do something different and model Huntress and Power Girl after his two friends Jana (JC Marie), a professional model and Margie Vizcarra Cox, a cosplayer. Admittedly I have issues with artists modelling characters after RL people, but that's a post for another day.

From Crisis on Infinite Earths, luscious pretty art. I especially love his attention to detail:

I especially love how he drew the pre-Crisis Helena Wayne (she was one sexy lady!):

For Worlds' Finest, Perez did this piece for a T-shirt:

I'll just go ahead and admit, while I do appreciate the effort at giving them different faces, I do think his Huntress and Power Girl looked better when he didn't actually model them after people he knows.

↑ In addition to an already terrible costume that looks like something out of a 1980s Scifi anime, Peege here especially makes me a sad sad panda on all scales. ↓

I expected better from Perez. ;_;

Hopefully the interiors look better. :/

I like Peege's costume a LOT better than the one from the actual WF cover we've seen. Still don't think she needs the P built into it. but at least this one works better than the old one, if only because it doesn't have the 'lookit me, I used to be Supergirl!' aspect.

(I actually have more of a problem with Peeg's hair than her face.)

the old one

OK, I'm making an assumption here that may not be true. 'the other one' would be more appropriate.
