Phantom Lady - commission process 1

I am starting a new painted commission featuring Phantom Lady. Kevin Hare approached me with a gag comic panel featuring Phantom Lady and how her appearance can affect both cop and criminal alike. I have done several commissions for Kevin over the years and he always manages to come up with ideas that are full of fun and sexiness. This one is no exception. He has also been a sport by allowing me to share the work in progress.

The commission will be set in the 1940s. So I started looking at some comic covers from that time period in order to get the costume right. Though the final piece will feature the yellow and green costume, I used the blue and red color scheme here for fun.
