Amethyst

Commission to deliver at next week's Heroes Con.  Amethyst of Gemworld.  Watercolor and ink. 

Don't know this for fact, but I think that Amethyst was DC's attempt to attract young girls to start reading comics in the mid-80's.  Some great art by Ernie Colon on the series, especially when he inked himself.  One of those artists who captures so much energy in inking their own work.

Thanks Ben. Actually, it was your Delirium piece that inspired the client for this watercolor treatment.
Looking forward to seeing you this weekend too.
