Supergirl in Living Color....

Here's a sketch I did of Supergirl. It's for CAPS ( Comic Art Professionals Society ) group entry for the program book at this year's San Diego Comic Con. This year's subject is "The Legion of Superheroes". The Legion of Superheroes holds a special place for me in my childhood. When I was in the first or second grade and I realized I might have a knack for drawing, some of my classmates would encourage me by paying me a nickel to draw them a picture of their favorite "Legion" character. This would eventually devolve into requests for me to "draw Supergirl naked". It certainly helped improve my figure drawing! The drawing for the book will be printed in black and white, but I decided to do color for the blog. Admittedly, I'm a horrible colorist and did a few versions that I'm not 100% happy with. So if you want to test your own coloring chops, I've provided the black and white version for you to give it a stab at. Just email me the file and I'll post it up here.
