This is a cover image I painted for a hard-cover collection of 1940's Superboy stories published by DC, which should be out on comic shop shelves very soon. It was a fun assignment, and gave me the opportunity to draw a light-hearted super hero image. I even got to put in a puppy.
The final painting was done in gouache and ink on water-colour paper. You can check out the original thumbnail drawing for it below, as well as a sheet of warm-up doodles I did while getting accustomed to the character.
