From the DC Source:
As some of you know, artist Michael Turner died from complications of cancer last summer. He left a lasting legacy with not only the Maid of Steel, but comics in general. We thought it would be a great honor to spotlight his career and this milestone issue, SUPERGIRL #50 by having a cover from the artist that helped usher the modern version of Supergirl into the DCU.
We hope you agree and join us in celebrating the character, and this great artist.

OMFG HELEN SLATER *DIES OF FANGIRL GLEE*
The line work seems to show its coloured from a con sketch or concept drawing. I think this was a great thing to do, I only wish they had shown Jim Mooney the same respect.
