Emerald Empress - Rough

Legion of Super-Heroes © DC Comics

Just an idea I did in my sketchbook today. I did the quick logo and text in Photoshop. In case it's unclear, those would be the Legionnaires hanging upside down on each side of the Emerald Empress. An inspection of the guard, as it were.

I did a few modifications to the outfit she has worn in the past. I think of the cloak being heavier, less cape-like, more regal. And she has a semi sheer full length skirt. It's not an outfit for fighting, but then I never thought the Empress should do any physical fighting. Not with the Emerald Eye of Ekron at her side. And I thought she would treat the Eye like a loving pet or servant. It would always be within arms reach not floating around above her head like it is usually shown. Most of the time she would be touching it in some fashion. Just some thoughts. Maybe I will get around to doing a finished piece with all the logos and text in place.

I like the logo, makes the piece look like a real cover.
