    OK so here are some of my drawings that I do in my spare time.

    Nightwing and batgirl. I'm not really certain where the inspiration for this came from. It's a pretty dark, somber image though.

    nightwing: ever the acrobat.

    sorry guys... this is a wicked crappy scan. :( but its batgirl on a jump line

    well i scanned this one a little crooked... and its no hero in particular. i did this during the comic book class i teach at work and the kids thought her face looked just like mine. must be some weird subconscious thing i do. i love her suit the best. if i were a superhero my suit would be just like that. :up:

    I didn't know you teach comic book class at work. Where do you work? What do you do?

    There great, and that Nightwing Batgirl picture, could the inspiration come from a Crow book?

    I work at an outdoor environmental education program for middle school kids. I teach all science all week long EXCEPT when I teach them my special comic book class. The kids go nuts over it. Their only complaint is I don't bring enough Marvel comics to look at :o

    Anyway, here comes batman, superman and a portrait I did four years ago...

    the batman one up above and this one are quick sketches i did in about 15 minutes each. as you can see batman was inspired by jim lee... i've never drawn a figure running before so i had to look on to see how the geometrics of the body were.
    here's supes. if he doesn't look much like him its cause my friend asked me to stick his head on superman's body ;)

    Nice, esp. the portrait.
    Portraits are very difficult to nail right, because you know what the person has to look like, there's no room for a hell of a lot of flaws.
    I tried making one of my girlfriend, everybody likes it but me.

    I like the portrait the best, but it looks like he is wearing lipstick

    well when you do a pencil portrait all shades of pink and red become very similar. so i don't blame you on the lipstick. i should get back into color but i don't really have the space :(

    anyway. here's another quick sketch i did. this time batgirl and supergirl... no shading though.

    if i put in as much effort into the other drawings as i did the portrait they'd be much better... i wish i had time like that these days

    thanks zer00! that's one of my favorites too. i started out with the girl... then i added the guy and i was like "hey-- that looks like nightwing and babs!" so i draw some stripes on his suit. :up: i like the emotion in it best. it seems very tragic to me.
