This was a book cover design I drew back in 2011 for a novel entitled ‘Superhero’ by the late author Richard Ellis (1958 – 2011), published by Just Done Productions.
What is this thing? Well I haven’t a clue, a quick doodle turned into inspiration and inspiration led to me colouring in this chibi. In case you were wondering, the word ‘chibi’ (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word for ‘short person’ though often referred to as ‘super-deformed’. While the doodle itself only took a few minutes in pencil, adding colour and shading took substantially longer, regardless I am happy with the results.
