For this year's last post I chose a Liandra pin-up I just finished two days ago.
Peter David is one of my favorite writers, and FALLEN ANGEL is, without a doubt, one of my favorite comics of all time. Only an imaginative mind as David's could take an overused concept (Good vs Evil, Heaven vs Hell, etc) and use it to create such a collection of original characters, places and situations.
The comic has so much subtext and there's so much depth in its characters that, in my opinion, describing FALLEN ANGEL only as a superhero book is like, you know, saying 2001 and STAR WARS are the same just because both movies are science-fiction.

Five months ago I made this illustration portraying Mr. T as Wolverine. A friend of mine suggested me to continue drawing black versions of white superheroes and I found it kind of an interesting idea, so I decided to try the most iconic superhero of all: Superman.
As you may have already realized, I used both actors Will Smith and Brandon Routh as the base for this illustration.
