DC Heroes Cover by YelZamor DC Heroes Cover by YelZamor
Final vote week for dA's 'Cute Monster Design Challenge' has begun. Please do check out my entry, should you have a moment.

:bulletblue: Greetings, peeps!

:bulletblue: I bring you triumphant news! It pays to be in the right place at the right time! It happened to be just right when my colleague, the very hard-working Ian Sharman, was putting the finishing touches on the LSCC programme. The organisers requested he use a colour version of the sketch, kindly provided by George Perez. Only, he didn't have one.

:bulletblue: *In case of colouring emergency Break Glass*

:bulletblue: And here we are! I was very pleased and proud to have been set to this task, especially since hundreds of people would have seen my work (the programme came in a few variants, distributed to the thousands of visitors).

:bulletblue: Surreally, I was cheeky enough to ask the man himself to autograph the programme for me. He sounded rather pleased with the colours and we had a little natter about Wonder Woman's eyes. I'd made them bluish, though he seemed to think they were brown. By his words, it was alright since he based the design on a brown-eyed relative.

This was a much-needed ego-boost.

Well done! (Though I'm pretty sure Diana's eye are brown...) This is the first time I've gotten a look at Superman's New 52 costume, and I actually like it.

Hullo.
In the absence of an official DC colour guide, sources found through google state that her eye colour is blue. :)

But yes, Supe's collar looks pretty snazzy... though you question the necessity of a utility belt. ;)

Tah for the comment!

Really? I totally thought she had brown eyes... The whole Greek thing. Though I think Lynda Carter did have blue eyes...

You're right about the utility belt. Has he ever used a physical tool? Other than what he was born with.

Myeah... the whole Greek thing. Doing a skim search, there was (or is) a belief in Greece that people with blue eyes are givers of the matiasma (or evil eye). So it'd make sense for her to have brown eyes. But as far as I can find, DC states it as blue.

But ya know... 'tis comics. ;)

A friend of mine suggested that Superman need not have big muscles either, since the source of his power isn't pure brawn.

As you said, 'tis comics. Since when do they ever follow the rules? (Not that I'm complaining, of course.)

Interesting point about his strength.

Ah! But you see, I was under said impression also until my good colleague informed me that these were the New 52 versions. :) She has a new choker and an armband too.
