Nice. :D
That group piece is really good.

One quick question.
Is the female Robin actually one from the comics or something that someone requested. I know there's one in Dark Night Returns and Spoiler (think that's her name) was Robin for a very short while but I can't remember seeing a dark haired one before.

They are all great, but the best is the little Nightwing.

These are very cool. (LOL, as if you didn't know that already.)
I'm impressed by the way you're rendering (or not rendering) lit surfaces. Cap's shield is the best highlight I've ever seen on plain brush drawing. You ink like a watercolor painter.
BTW< that ?Young Avengers? piece is compositionally extremely impressive.

Good friggin' stuff.

The linework is great! Heck, the whole drawing is excellent, but I really like your inking.

I'd be on cloud nine if I could ink like that! The lines look so fluid, almost as if they'd run off the page if you picked it up.

They are so smooth, it amazes me that they're actually stuck to the paper! It looks like you scanned the empty pages and put the superpeople on top from illustrator or something. Great work, I especially like the feet for some reason. :)

Thanks you guys! I've really been enjoying drawing on paper again. :)

Wendy - Actually, this particular Robin is of my own design. I call her Robin One. I made her up for a Batman story I wrote in my head one time about Bruce Wayne becoming mayor of Gotham and Tim Drake heading up the bat-vigilantes as Nightwing. However, there have been two female Robins of note, Stephanie Brown in 2004, and Carrie Kelly from Frank Miller's 1985 Elseworlds tale, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Leonardo - Thanks! That one's actually a Robin, too, though clearly influenced by Nightwing's design. Someone commissioned me to draw them a sketch of what a 'Robin Beyond' might have looked like, so that's what I came up with, drawing from the animated Nightwing, Robin, and Batman Beyond designs.

I LOVE Cap's shield and the burst around Shazam. Gorgeous inking, Dean!

I was looking at your drawings again and I´m amazed with your brush skill, wish I have half of that. You made me your fan.

Gorgeous inks. :) Might I ask which brand/size brush you're using?
