Superman

A quick Superman image for the OzComics.com challenge this week. He’s never been one of my favourite Super Heroes, but I felt like having a crack at him. As ever, it’s telling a snippet of a story, albeit a daft one.

This one began life as a sketch in my pad before being transferred to my ASUS Slate tablet PC. Having purchased the kit over half a year ago, I had been neglecting it. I picked it up again when I went for a Drink’n’Draw session last week and I really felt we bonded, finally.

Speed Trap

Part of the Wideguys lineup, I initially wanted to do a cop car conversion of the 2009 Dodge Challenger. This was one of the American muscle car re-imaginings I really liked from a few years ago, other examples of which are the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.

From there I developed the idea of it being part of a speed trap scene, and that it would be cool to have the cop a female, so that I could use her long hair to accentuate the draft created by the unseen perpetrator speeding by. The criminal in question was originally going to appear to the right, having gone round a bend left and driving off into the distance. Ultimately I preferred the idea that you don’t see him, just his wake.

This image was created by drawing and inking the car and the cop separately with a pen and pad, then scanning and comping them in Photoshop. The dust cloud effect was created using the Colour Halftone filter.
