Lightning Lad - Legion of Super-Heroes

We have another Legionnaire for Roland today. Garth Ranzz, Lightning Lad. Lightning Lad had one of the coolest costume anywhere. Designed by Dave Cockrum during his run on the Legion in the 1970s. Thanks again Roland! This is ink on 11" x 17" Canson Bristol Paper.

And below we have something special that I thought I would share. This is just one of several painted commissions I did for my friend Tom Fleming, owner of Fanfare-se.com I met Tom through eBay and he probably has a larger collection of my artwork than I do. We became friends and our families would spend Thanksgiving weekend together at Mid-Ohio Con. Now they come down here and spend their family vacation with us. Always a lot of fun!

Back in 1999 or 2000, Tom had an idea to commission from me a series of paintings of the Legion couples. This one with Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl was one of the earliest ones, dated 2000. This was inked and them painted in gouache and watercolor on 11" x 17" Strathmore Illustration Board. These were a blast to work on. I will share them all, one at a time if there is any interest. Most have not been seen. They won't take the place of posting new work, they will just a little bonus post. :)
