Brush with Super Heroes


I've done very few "straight" comics projects and when I have the results have usually been unremarkable. This one I don't mind too much. I can't remember how I wound up doing a Superman pin-up but the first thing I asked myself is "how do I make it my own?" Well the answer can be seen here as Superman (this was during the short period when he sported a curly mullet) is hoisting a hideous monster baby just before lobbing him into a steaming lava pit. Enjoy!

It's all so nice and skritchy, all the lovely cross hatching and subtle brush work!

It did get used. An all pin-up comic called Man of Steel Gallery. I did a color guide but the final was a bit on the acidic side.

yep, i enjoy to see superman on your style, usually i faind the character very unexpresive on the illustrations i watch, im not a marvel comic reader, so maybe im wrong, but this is very different of what i have usually on maind of superman, to the line, the curves, the expresion, even the backgraund is very expresive and the image has a lot off mouve adore it. <3
