Here's a self-promotion piece I just finished. I wanted to do a "superhero" piece that wasn't exactly a piece of fanboy art, but something that could have a subtext of sorts. I also wanted to do a man, woman, teen, child, and dog. In the end it seems to be about a superdad's irritation/expectations of his family, I think. But my only reason I did this was to have a superhero piece with a fully drawn city in the background.
Anyways, below is the uncropped version of the art.
Then the city by itself. I had to create it separately and then put the characters over top. If I hadn't built the piece this way I would have gotten lost figuring out where everything was--too many details to keep track of.
Last, the original inks.
