Cool Dave Cockrum design, pretty cool twist on the Superman archetype. Cool X-Men sometime villain. Bad drawing from a few years ago.
Seriously, the green arrow means go. Don’t fucking hesitate. And for that matter, when it’s just a regular green light and you’re making a left turn, pull into the damn intersection, for chrissakes.
I believe I’ve already laid out my love for the archer superheroes in the Hawkeye drawing. I’m especially a big fan of Mike Grell’s run on G.A.
This is the most green I’ve ever used to color anything.
Two Sabbath references in a row!
I like The Atom. I became a fan of Ray Palmer when I found the “Sword of The Atom” series in a second hand store, and enjoyed his appearances in Dan Jurgen’s unfairly maligned “Teen Titans” series. But I’m not such a whiny fuck that when he was replaced by Ryan Choi – which is the version I drew here – that I threw a fit. Or gave a crap when Ray returned. I did like the Ryan Choi Atom series, though. Gail Simone wrote some fun stories, John Byrne cranked out some of his most tolerable art in twenty years, and Mike Norton rocked it for the remainder of the series. My one problem with Ryan Choi’s Atom was the color scheme of his costume.. It seemed backward. I colored it here the way that makes sense to me.
I’ve always had a fondness for the Barbara Gordon Batgirl. Probably just comes from a childhood crush on Yvonne Craig from the old Batman TV show. A crush which still kinda continues. It probably also instilled my appreciation for beautiful redheaded women. I loves me some hot redheads.
Anyhoo, as with the Power Man/Iron Fist drawing from a few weeks ago, I’m still continuing to work with greytone marker renderings. I don’t feel this one came out as well. It seems the markers I’m using have a life of about one drawing only.
