Digital color over scan of black Prisma Color pencil on paper.
This a drawing of the Maid of Might incorporating design features I liked from the Bruce Timm (Batman Adventures, Justice League Unlimited) television shows. After my days of drawing Disney's Mulan, I put a lot of "S" curves in my drawings. Timm seems to like the boldness of simple "C" curves.
The red jacket is borrowed from the Superboy (1993-2006) design introduced in the "Death of Superman" storyline. Clark on Smallville (2001-present) would also have a red jacket.
The most curious thing, I think, about this piece is the bird. Flying people are a staple of comic books, but the bird definitively says that this girl is flying.
