So, there's a little boy named Clark. He just had his fifth birthday party and he loves the Flash. I was asked to draw a Flash comic book cover for him. I felt like the request was a no-brainer. Yes, I would like to draw the Flash doing something awesome. So, I thought it'd be fun to draw Clark making the Flash eat his dust. I gave him his own costume and superhero name. That way, when he's running around his yard, he can pretend he's the Lightning Boy. Happy Birthday, buddy.
P.S. For this piece, I inked the lines in Illustrator. I wanted it to have a certain clean quality for him. The colors were painted in Photoshop. The initial sketch was actually done on an iPad with Sketchbook Pro.
