|The Spectre, created by Jerry Siegel & Bernard Baily|
- Super heroes with energy blasting powers were a favorite because it kept me from having to draw pesky details like fingers.
- Super heroes with hands balled up into fists also kept me from having to deal with fingers.
- Batman was always a favorite to draw; draw an extra long flowing cape and toss on lots of shadows and voila, I was able to obscure most if not all of my shortcomings at drawing human anatomy.
- Heroes who could fly really fast? Speed lines took care legs and feet.
- The simpler the design, the better. Jim Lee, I am not.
Here's the original pencil sketch.
