ISIDTA 15 : superheroes

ISIDTA 15 : superheroes

Ok, this week's drawing is a little cruder than I had intended it to be, because I somehow managed to slash open my finger on a tin of leftover chicken pot pie, and so my drawing ability has been dealt a bit of a blow. (It's the index finger on my right hand, a most important finger for many activities.)

Also, I've just noticed that this is the first post I've made to the blog since LAST week's ISIDTA! Well that's sad. Thing is, I've been miserably sick for a week, and haven't been much in the mood for posting or much of anything else. I've been in and out of work for the past week. Even more seriously, my voice is practically gone, so I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to get on stage for CageMatch this week. Erg.

So, on to the commentary. This idea just popped into my head while reading Dean Trippe's Butterfly. I pencilled the various elements in my sketchbook, as best I could with a bum finger. Then I scanned 'em into the computer, composed the panels and inked them with a Photoshop brush and the Wacom (since I could undo my many screwups). And voila.

Here's one that might fit better on the screen.
Kit's ISIDTA can be found here.

Okay, the first line somehow got lost.

"Wow. That is one badass .sig-jpegable flying superhero you've got..."
