So the image above was my first attempt at a JL layout for a commission…
However, the client wanted less Batman and more Superman, so I did some quick photoshopping in order to come up with a new layout…

Obviously there are some issues, I’m thinking they look a little too separate, blocked off…I might have to overlay some of the characters a little more, I don’t know. And Superman’s foward-most hand is a little iffy…and the Flash is looking a little weird…but hey, she really liked the second layout more, so I’ll be proceeding with that one.

Wonder Woman Commission
October 5, 2011

I got hired by a father to do a Wonder Woman commission piece for his 5 year old daughter.
I started out by sketching this in my 8.5 x 11 sketchbook, but wasn’t happy with the face and some of the hair.

So on a separate page, I sketch, like 5 more faces until I created one I was happy with. I’m particularly happy with the very Greek nose, and the look in her eyes, which I wanted to say “Really?? You’re shooting at me with bullets? You’s a dummy!”

I then took that face and the body sketch and merged them together in Photoshop, then printed that out and lightboxed the whole image onto a sheet of 11×17 Bristol Board.

I then inked over those pencils with Windsor Newton Series 7 brushes and some Micron pens until I got this:

About 3 hours and change of coloring in Photoshop, I was done!

Now I just hope the client is happy with it!!
