Commission. Client got a an ink drawing on paper and a hi-res color print.
The Great Lakes Avengers are a team I have a very soft spot for. They popped up in the late 80s as I somehow stumbled into reading West Coast Avengers at the time when Wanda/Scarlet Witch first went batshit and when Vision became bleached white Vision, which is a storyline that has basically influenced the current phase of the live-action Marvel shows and movies pretty deeply. Anyhoo, the GLA were ridiculous and a joke, but I loved that Hawkeye came on board to lead them, and they did prove themselves as heroes. Flatman of course is the 2-D Mr. Fantastic wanna-be, but never quite as good. He came out in the late 20-Teens in the short-lived GLA book. I’m sure it was probably handled with utmost care.
Happy Father’s Day, here’s the best son of the worst father in the DC Universe.
I have mentioned before that I like the Connor Hawke Green Arrow exactly as much as I like Ollie Queen. The other major Legacy characters in DC Comics (Flash & Green Lantern), I definitely prefer the “replacements” over the originals (Kyle over Hal, Wally over Barry. Fuck Barry). But with GA, I love both Connor and Ollie. I have also mentioned before that Connor’s costume has too much goddamn brown in it for him to be Green Arrow. So when I draw him, I change it. All that said, Connor is coming out as asexual in the 2022 DC Pride special that’s being released sometime soon (I would assume in June?). It’s a choice that absolutely fits the character, and no matter what, I hope it also means we see more Connor popping up in comics. It’s a character that I am always excited to see, and he was gone for far too long. No thank you, Nu52.
Vaguely remember her from the Black Lightning TV series, but while researching her, I discovered the absolute worst superhero costume I’ve ever seen. Thank god she changed.
Mikaal Tomas, the 70s one-issue Starman, brought back eventually in James Robinson’s masterwork 90s Starman series as a tragic and completely beloved (by me) character.
I almost got this confused with Namorita. Two totally different characters.
Not real happy with the face. I suck.
Tim Drake, best Robin. Canonically bi in a recent-ish story. Refuse to draw him in any other version of his costume. Best Robin.
I’ll be honest, I totally forgot Wiccan (and Hulkling) were a thing. I read the original run of Young Avengers back in the day and loved it, but yeah… Also totally forgot that Wiccan was one of Scarlet Witch’s fake sons.
I have never been more excited for a patron request than when I got “evil drunk Superman from Superman III”.
Hercules! ‘Nuff Said.
