I loved Batman v Superman... Next up Suicide Squad!

So I've been roaming the internets lately and have been doing my civic duty liking BVS posts or tweets and at some points rebutting some haters on my FB page, chatrooms and newsites. BVS has got the fans divided! It's very much like the Man of Steel reaction, actually. Crazy sidenote, I had to comment on a site to help them clarify some things they misunderstood about BVS... here's the catch: it was on a site that prided itself to be a lover of all things Zack Snyder! How's that for divided!

Anyhow, I loved Batman v Superman. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it surely exceeded what expectations I had of it! I'm eagerly counting the days until the blu-ray comes out!

To be honest, I was quite bummed the rest of the world didn't quite feel as excited about it as I was, but after a few weeks of moping and checking the Box Office performance of BVS (which, I'm glad to say will at the very least break even for WB), I'm back on my feet not caring what other people think! Back to work in combating DC hate with fan art! And what better way to do that than making fan art for the DCEU's next film, Suicide Squad!

The second Suicide Squad trailer just dropped a few days ago and it looks absolutely awesome!

Quick sketch on the first layer. I knock down the transparency on this layer
and keep it loose. It's quite a horrible drawing, but I just push foreward.

Inking phase next. The speedline background is on a separate layer as well
as my shadow pass on her face and hands. Usually if I'm a little apprehensive
about something I work on a different layer so that mentally, I'm not stressing
out about running out of undos! It's quite freeing for myself and
I just keep drawing more and worrying less.

Coloring phase. This was a little trickier than my usual drawings.
Usually I have a color scheme in mind already when I start coloring, but I
really had to find it while doing it on this one. I wussed out on the face shadows
and actually made it a color instead of keeping it that stark black from the inks.
I did more colored line effect this time around so the stark blacks on her
face weren't quite working. I added one of my favorite lines from the
trailer to finish off the drawing. The Ballroom Blitz!

So there you have it. I've noticed a lot of some artists I follow on tumblr or twitter post up a lot of Marvel themed sketches (and they're great!). Rarely do I see some DC love (unless it's Batman). So I'm back to try to tip the scales! DC fan powered sketch! Bring the hate, haters! DC Cinematic Universe is going full-steam ahead!
