As part of September's childhood cancer awareness month, the objective was to fill Facebook with pictures of superheroes. If you liked someone's post they assigned you a superhero and you were to make that hero your profile picture. I got Aquaman (sigh) and the marvelous Kevin Somers liked my post and I assigned him Shade The Changing Man. Shade was originally created by Steve Ditko in 1977 and was later revamped in the 1990's by Petter Milligan and Chris Bachalo, it was this later series that I read and enjoyed.
Rather than just find a picture of Shade on the internet Kevin drew this image and gave Shade a ZONE shirt.
This was done in a student's sketchbook last week. I really like how ZONE and the little creature worked out, the woman, not so much. I added the woman because when I asked the student if his sketchbook had a theme the class sort of laughed and they explained that is was developing into one with a bunch of nudes. Never one to shy away from drawing naked people I tried to figure a way to work ZONE in. I originally was drawing the woman in a much more stylized fashion, I don't know when I went wrong.
So maybe this is my character Ultra, years later, thinking back to when she met ZONE.
