Any incarnation or design of Ultraman, Superwoman, Owlman, Johnny Quick, Power Ring or any of the other characters are eligible this week.
Due Date: March 5, 2022
Discussion, works-in-progress and final submission all in the thread below.

I remember working at a comic shop when Forever Evil dropped. Not sure hoo I’ll draw this week.
Awesome™. Time to get Evil
Didn’t take me long to find my hook.
Now to find the time to draw it…
Here’s my Owlman so far! Decided to take it easy and borrow Jim Lee’s iconic pose!
I like the Forever Evil Johnny Quick design. Lots of lightning and arrows!
I expanded my digital trickery here to get some Flash speed lines.
Wow! That was .,… wait for it…. quick!
I did start mine tonight and will continue tomorrow. Might be able to finish it then but don’t know
Thanks, yea, at this time of year, by Saturday afternoons are usually free and so I try and knock out the drawing right away.
I feel like I’m much faster than I was a year ago.
Nice details on the shading. And nice pose too. I try to do my own drawings quickly too, practicing for any future deadlines I may receive in the comic business.
All done with my Owlman piece! May do another one with a different pose later.
That expression is so him! The pose is just right cause with Quick all you see is his back! Great job!!
Digging the pose! I love me some Jim Lee, if you couldn’t tell by my heavily influenced style. Great job with this one!
Btw, you forgot to mention Ivan Reis’s run with them in Justice League. It was phenomenal!
From my personal collection:
Kinda digging on Deathstorm, but I am not sure who I shall try to draw. Kinda wish I didn’t do Cyborg so recently. Grid would have been cool, but too soon.
Appreciate it! Can wait to see yours!
Oh, I totally missed that! Deathstorm is awesome! I probably should have included Atomica on Johnny Quick’s shoulder too.
Very cool Owlman! I like what you did with the cape effects.
I did an Owlman profile pic last year and I know that mask is tricky to pull off from the side. Lots of weird angles. Looks great.
Thanks @MichaelLakeArt and @RobArt471!
David Finch always drew Johnny Quick with this huge mouth and toothy sinister smile. I was trying for a smug look with a big enough mouth that looks like it could hold all of those teeth.
I started with the eyebrow up a bit too, but that made him look too happy. A slight adjustment brought him back to sinister.
