I am not much of an artist. I have been trying to learn, mostly as a function of being able to give writing concept better development as I perceive them. This morning I sat down and tried to draw a character (with Lily Collins as a base) but ended up crumpling up both of them and throwing them out. Coincidentally I was looking into an obscure DC team this morning called the Omega Men. I am not sure if their stories are memorable, but as I use a lot of campy science fiction for the inspiration I am always on the lookout for more. One photo was interesting to me which came fro the first encounter with Hal Jordan with the characters. The set up was kind of funny to begin with. As a native of Canada's Atlantic provinces, I rarely if ever see any comic book action set in the any of them, and while this was more far away Newfoundland it still kind of felt like home. The setup made sense though, the Omage Men needed a place to hide out of sight, and what better place in North America to do so. Equally Halm and Carol were interested in getting away from it all completely, and so again it was a perfect setting. Anyway here is the panel:
Again, I have very little experience as an artist, but one of the things which I thought was an unwritten rule among comic book artists was not to include accessories unless they are absolutely essential to the character, to the point of not including them as characteristics of certain characters instead of having to draw them time and again. This seems to be the case here as the artist has decided to give one of the characters (Kallista) nearly impossibly long eyelashes (they stick out from her face almost as far as her nose.) I guess it is just a case of artists not following one of their own rules.
