Krypto and Cassie by mcguan Krypto and Cassie by mcguan
I didn't know if I would be posting this to dA, but with my schedule being what it is these days, I figured why not. A couple months back, an issue of the Superman main title was pulled for some controversy or another, and DC instead ran an inventory story by Kurt Busiek and Rick Leonardi. I say "inventory," but really it was an issue that ties heavily into the whole "Infinite Crisis" storyline of which I know little, and has since been rendered moot anyway. The story is basically: Superboy died (he's since gotten better, because "Comics, everybody!") and his dog misses him.

I have a current project involving my own dog (A Dudley Lab) and since I was already in dog-sketching mode, decided this would be a good time to draw her as Krypto for my own amusement (since my fiancee has squashed my plans to name any future dogs "Krypto," I have to enjoy it however vicariously). It started as a sketch, grew into an excuse to draw the Cassie version of Wonder Girl, and was just a chance for me to work on different lighting for a change. I worked on this here and there over the course of the past two months and in between other things, and was really just a practice piece for a nerd who likes his dog a lot.

So while this was never really intended for dA display, the "Man of Steel" movie is currently filming about half an hour from where I live. This past weekend I decided to stalk the set and catch a glimpse of the Smallville set (what I did see? LOTS of destruction happening in this one, kids), and now I've got an all-things-Superman buzz going.

Created with PITT Pens, Adobe Photoshop, and a timeframe not exactly "faster than a speeding bullet."

Really like your art work and not only do you the typical curvy fan boy's dream super babes well, but you caught the expressiveness of a dog's face in Krypto.  Great attention to detail and thoughtfulness.

I think someone used your piece here as "inspiration".
