Brainiac likes short shorts

I don’t know what Brianiac really looks like, so I made a no-reference guess based on my memory of Superfriends. It’s sort of my “default” when I think Brainiac. That, or James Marsters. Or the Timm version. Or the tentacled skull robot latched onto Luthor’s head.

The stranger thing about this piece is that I rarely – if ever – work in color. But when I do it’s Photoshop or Illustrator all the way. This was done in color pencil, and as I was working on it – sort of in an out-of-body experience kinda way – I realized that this is the first piece of art I’ve hand colored in over 10 years.

Made me feel old.

And depressed.

But that’s just like shooting fish in a barrell.
