Sometimes when I'm just sitting around waiting for things, like computer programs to finish running, I tend to doodle and sketch. Recently, while digging around trying to find my sketches for my original character "Capt. Kaboom" (fodder for a future blog), I came across some random sketches and I'm tossing them up here for posterity.
First up is "Red Lantern." I did this years before DC actually introduced the "Red Lantern" to their GREEN LANTERN comics. What was in my mind was giving modern teen sidekicks to some characters who had never had sidekicks. GL had never had a sidekick and I just started thinking along the lines of Green Arrow and Speedy with the green/red costume compliment. And voila'. My own Red Lantern.
This is little more than just a doodle, but it's me trying to visualize Phileas Fogg from the Jules Verne AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS novel.
The next 4 were all done in one session of doodle-sketches of the Justice Society characters, Flash, Atom, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman.
