As I mentioned when I posted my recreation of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie logo the other day… I went back and made those cutouts around the “S” shield full cutouts so that the logo can be used on any background, and not just a black one as I had originally done.
The more I kept looking at it, the more interesting it became. Speaking, of course, of the logo from the movie posters for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. For some reason, and on not much sleep, I decided late last night to tackle this… so tackle it I did!
As I was drawing this, I was having a hard time visualizing everything that was going on with that “S” in the middle. For some reason I couldn’t wrap my brain around it after staying up all night… but I kept methodically plodding along until it felt finished. When I woke up this morning after about 8 hours of sleep, and looked at this again, I was pleasantly amazed at how I now easily understood the construction and that somehow I had managed to capture it correctly with my brain on autopilot!
The only thing I didn’t do… that I might do later… those cutouts for the “S” in the middle aren’t really cutouts. It all looks better with black behind it, so I did it that way… but in truth, these should be cutouts so you can see through them to the background behind… whatever that might be. I’ll probably tweak it and make a version with true cutouts later just in case I need it for something else.

People like my comic strips… and people have really liked my recent Technical Illustration posts… but one of the most consistently searched areas of my blog continues to be my logo and insignia work; in particular, my Spider-Man head and my Flash and Reverse Flash insignias. Check out my Comic Book Company Logos and Insignias post from last year to see what I’m talking about.
I attribute at least some of this popularity to the recent success the CW has had with shows like Flash and Arrow. So, never let it be said I don’t try and give people more of what they want! Here’s my rendition of a bust-style illustration of the Reverse Flash costume from the Flash TV show.
Your eyes are not deceiving you, by the way, there is no person inside the costume! I’m actually thinking of doing a series of bust illustrations in this style with various costume-only renditions. If you have a favorite character, please let me know and I’ll see if I can add it to my queue.
Remember, if you are interested in requesting my services as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
I posted a bunch of comic book company logos and superhero insignias last September. Recently, I decided that I wanted a new online avatar for some of the forums I regularly visit, and it felt like the right time to whip up a few more and also post them on my blog. As I have said before, I really like having clean vector versions of these around because I can use them in lots of different ways and scale them to any size I need.
I really like the Superman S-shield design, and Superman is one of the most widely recognized of all the DC Comics characters. I’m also a big fan of the Wonder Woman eagle insignia too. Once I had created these, I realized it was insanely easy to also have a Bizarro Superman insignia as well!
I liked the Bizarro one so much, that I changed a bunch of my forum avatars to it last night! Please let me know what you think of these… and don’t forget to check out the ones I posted on my blog last year.
