Shrinking Violet - Commission Roughs

Another commission I am working on features Shrinking Violet of the Legion of Super-Heroes. As always, I tried to present a variety of poses and/or situations to choose from. Once I showed them, I was told all of them are great and it was being left up to me to choose which one to paint. How cool is that?

I went back and forth on it. Sought the opinion of friends and a higher source (my lovely wife of course) and ultimately it came down to my favorite of the three, "C". I've done other variation of Shrinking Violet in Colossal Boy's hand before but this one fits so well. The costume she is wearing is from the time that they were actually a couple. Around issue number 305 of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Oh, and can anyone guess the inspiration for "B". That is if you can figure out what the heck I drew there. :)

I reworked the hand a bit and then transferred this image to the final art board. I will try to take photos and or scans of the process and share them with the final piece.
