In it’s course, that counts almost 75 years, DC Comics managed to house something more than its iconic heroes.

Dozens of creators through the years, turned with their endless talent, the industry into the modern pop culture phenomenon that it is today. And once the childhood awe turned into creative interest, most of those artists put their influence in the way I draw.

In this section I present my small tribute, as thousands before me, inspired by all the mediums, from cinema to video gamas anf back to the source comic material itself.

Let me know what you think, and check back soon for updates!

Superman (Christopher Reeve Tribute)

If you are about my age, it’s hard to think of Superman without Christopher Reeve’s face. Don’t get me wrong, I think Henry Cavill is awesome, but back in his days, seeing the Man of Steel fly across the screen for the first time was pretty memorable.

Placing Christopher Reeve’s face on the New 52 suit, seems like a nice tribute, to his timeless effort.

The Batman

The guys at Rokcsteady really love Batman, as much as we do. They delivered an amazing storyline in the Arkham trilogy, worthy of a movie standard, and they also gave an amazing look on the Dark Knight and his villains.

That suit seems like the best balance between what Batman should look like, but also function in a possible real world… Without the underwear though, I never really liked the underwear in superheroes.

And remember, Batman was created by BOTH Bob Kane AND Bill Finger!

Wonder Woman

When I first saw this cover by Artgerm, I couldn’t but fall in love with both Wonder Woman and his unique style.

I can’t match his talent, but I did my best to capture her, and the Sideshow Collectibles statue, surely gave me the perfect reference for her pose.

Green Lantern

I suppose the 2011 movie, wouldn’t be a popular reference for Green Lantern, so I tried to go with something more neutral…

Aquaman

It’s really sad that a character as classic as Aquaman, has to defend his value, against what people saw in “Big Bang Theory”, or “Family Guy”.

Never the less, I ‘m pretty sure Jason Momoa will restore that. And even though the movie version may look cooler, I combined his face with the classic look.

Green Arrow

The Arrow series really brought Oliver Queen to life, and we have Stephen Amell to thank for that! Too bad he won’t be a part of the upcoming cinematic universe, though, hopefully, things change…

The Flash

When I started this series, I had in mind a really strict portrait type of presentation. But let’s be fair, you can’t draw the fastest man alive standing still.

Grant Gustin’s face and a pose from Francis Manapul’s frame, make the perfect Flash!

Shazam!
Shazam!

After Alex Ross, Captain Marvel’s face became almost fixed to Sal Abbinanti's features, and combined with Gary Frank’s cover make the perfect Shazam!
