Commissioned character drawing.
The owner showed me previous drawings of this character done by another artist. The drawings were probably done in the mid-90s, and the artist somewhat traced his works using Jim Lee and Marc Silvestri’s originals from WildC.A.T.S. and Cyberforce.
Seeing as the character’s design was probably inspired by these works and those probably done also by Brett Booth (Backlash), I took the opportunity to pay homage to Jim Lee by doing the character ala the Batman HUSH and Superman FOR TOMORROW covers that he did.
