Silver Age Adam Strange

The next cover in my year long series of DC reprints is the Silver Age Adam Strange.  It was a delight to work on this as Adam Strange is one of my favourite comics characters.  For me, the central theme of the series was the romance between Adam and his love, Alanna.  I was always struck by how the early stories usually ended with Adam alone, light years away from Alanna and dreaming of a way back to her.  I've actually drawn him once before, lost a similar reverie.

The final art for this was drawn in ink, with colours and effects added digitally.  You can see the colour rough below.
