Dr. Fate doesn't really mean much to me, but the mood of this is perfect for the character!

I agree, my son digs him, but I dont know much about the character. I wanted to get that powerful feel to it though.

Of course Fate could kick Superman's butt. Supes is vulnerable to magic.

This is one sweet drawing! Great job!

You are without a doubt in my top 3 comic artists of all time, dude. Just phenomenal work. Perfect proportion and form every single time. Your "energy" or lightning effects are brilliantly done. And you've mastered the "less is more" style. :) You know when to use few lines and minimal shading, and then you go crazy on Hawkman's feathers and stuff!! JUST. FREAKING. AMAZING.

wow, sincerely, thanks for your kind words. It still blows me away that someone would look to my art for any kind of inspiration or as a guide for process. I feel like I have so much to learn and so much to get better at consistently. Thanks again, I do appreciate it.

No problem at all! Meant every word. I've been drawing comic stuff since I was a kid. I take too many "hiatuses", though. :) I'm good on detail(i'd love your feedback and critique on just my "Earth Colossus" piece)but my stuff doesn't turn out as "eyecatching" as I'd like a lot of times. I take any critique really seriously, and would greatly appreciate your take on my stuff. I was at Mid-Ohio Con in November 2010, and had the distinct honor of having my work critiqued by Bob Mcleod!! Been working on my leg/lower body proportions ever since. :) PLEASE take the time to look at some of my stuff and give me any critique you can think of, anything you think I can work on. Your work reminds me Frank Cho's work with smaller breasts. lol. Very eyecatching, and you never see a drawing where you have to say "that arm is too long" or "that head is too small for that body". I remember Marvel back in the days of Todd McFarlane or Stephen Platt..Horribly disproportionate, but very flashy. People ate it up for some reason, myself included.

Well, it's certainly taken years of drawing everyday to refine those proportions. And I most definitely still make mistakes and miss things that I could've done better. Doing the sketch a day has helped IMMENSELY with my figure work, hands and faces for sure. It's just a matter of buckling down and finding opportunities to learn, but that doesnt happen by accident. It takes work. However that work can still be fun. I've had such a blast working on this SOTD for my blog, and with each sketch I try to incorporate something I can learn from. Then I just have fun with the drawing. Over time those little bits of things I've learned from both mistakes and successful drawings are becoming a part of my style and fairly effortless. It doesnt happen overnight, so I know I still have a long way to go.
