Week 1: Long Live The Legion

Here we go! Here’s how this works…
The subject of this art/sketch blog will be posted right here every Monday.
Participating artists have 4 days to draw/create their piece based on the week’s topic.
When finished, email a scan (or a link) to: patrick@challengerscomics.com
(.jpg format, internet friendly sizes, please)
And we’ll post them back here Friday morning.
Also, for those interested in creating in a live environment,  we’ll be holding in-store sketch nights every other Thursday from 7pm to 10pm, starting this week (January 5th). Bring your supplies and beer if you want. We’ll provide the tables.

Okay? Are you ready? Since we are now living in the future (!!) the very first Challengers Assemble! subject is the Legion of Super-Heroes! Don’t know ’em? There are plenty of sites that’ll give you reference. You can choose ANY Legionnaire from ANY version of the Legion. 1 character, 5, whatever. And it can be representative of the Legion, not necessarily a specific character. You can draw a Legion Flight Ring or their rocketship clubhouse. Your choice.

Okay. See you back here Friday!
