Jimmy Olsen is one of only around three things I'd actually kill to draw AND write. I previously ranted about Jimmy here, so I'll try not ramble on too much. I will say that Jimmy doesn't get the love he deserves... and just try to leave it at that:)
Below you'll see the first step in inking this piece. I went in with a marker for all the outlines and little details before I broke out the brush. I actually almost let it be at this stage, but it just didn't feel like a finished piece.
Even though the writing scrawled on the robot's chest and the dinosaurs in the background look like I was just goofing around, these elements were actually taken from a story in Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen #12. If you can't track down the original, it was recently reprinted in Showcase presents: Superman Family volume one. Those old Silver-Age tales were just packed with this sort of crazy stuff!
Anyway, have a great weekend, folks. I'll see ya back here on Monday!
