Here I’m drawing a slightly realistically detailed Betty as the Girl of Steel. I’m not sure if she’s “Betty” enough because most people are just taking this one as a straight
The post-NYCC rebuilding of my marker portfolio continues with this marker color sketch of DC Comics’ Power Girl. I did this one during my night class at the Kubert School. This one measures 9″ x 12″ and it was colored using a combination of copic and chartpak markers. I’m still in the process of
