Even though this drawing took 15 sessions I had many more permutations of Superman that went into the garbage.

Getting a likeness of Christopher Reeves was very difficult but in the end I feel I achieved it.

Superman: Finished, Wonder Woman Next

I put the finial touches on Superman and started Wonder Woman today.

Superman: Close to Finished

Honestly I don’t think I need to get too detailed in his body, the major part of this drawing, his portrait, is done and I like it.

Superman: Finally One I Like

I kept working on the previous drawing, at first to experiment then I liked it so much I decided to keep going.

Superman: Even Better

I always keep my latest work out so I can look at it throughout the day. Because of this I had to adjust the drawing more.

Superman: I Have What I want

I didn’t want to get this detailed with the drawing but I felt like I needed to in order to get the likeness.

Superman: Getting Close

I switched to graphite for this drawing and took my time on it. I wanted to do the best I could.

Superman: The Elusive Likeness

I don’t think I’ve every had a likeness so hard to capture. Every time I draw Christopher Reeve I don’t quite capture him.
