Work in Progress - Pencils Complete

Characters © DC Comics

If you have been following me on Twitter or come here regularly, you have seen bits and pieces of this commission for Royce as I have worked on it. And now Royce has graciously allowed me to share the completed pencils as a whole.

This piece is measuring in at 14" x 17" and it is on Strathmore 400 series Bristol Board. The idea was Royce's. One that he has toyed around with for quite and while and when he mentioned it to me, I had to make this happen. There are some areas that are still pretty rough to the casual viewer but it's enough information for me to begin inking. (This was scanned in three sections so there is some variation in lights and darks) There are a lot of silver age references, a couple of bronze age ones too. I know I didn't hit every Superman Family landmark or supporting character, but I think Royce and I captured some of the best loved. Thanks again Royce. Onward to the inks!
