I love commissions involving the Legion of Super Heroes and this was definitely a fun one. Here as requested by the commissioner we have Archie Comics’ Betty Cooper dressed as Saturn Girl from DC Comics’ The Legion of Super Heroes. Specifically, Betty here is decked out in Saturn Girl’s 1970’s costume as designed by Dave Cockrum. We can see elements here that Cockrum would also use in designing costumes for the X-Men’s Storm and Phoenix. The addition of a Jughead hat wearing Proty was mine.
This piece measures 9″ x 12″ and was colored with a combination of Copic and Chartpak markers. The colors unfortunately didn’t scan very well and look far, far more washed out here than they really are. I know I could probably punch them up a little in Photoshop but that always feels not authentic to me. For some reason, however, I have no problem using filters on Instagram.
This commission goes out to be loyal supporter Jamie Morrison as part of his rewards from last year’s Die Kitty Die Heaven & Hell Kickstarter campaign. Packages are still going out, Folks! We’ll get to you I promise. Thanks for the support and your patience, Jamie!
As always, no one ever has to wait for our Kickstarter campaigns to request a commission. If you’d like me to draw you something, please reach out and let me know!
