I heard.  I am so excited!  I am more of a trade man, but I might just pick up the single issues just so I can see his art sooner.

Have you been around busty women in skin-tight outfits before? Sure, the cleavage shown isn't down the center, but that's a totally legit placement. Outfits can't hold everything in :)

Very nice detailing here; it figures that apparel to be worn 24/7 underwater would have to follow something akin to fish scales in order to last long, much less be functional.

Sadly, this doesn't change the fact that Aquaman just has an ugly costume.  At one point, I remember DC revised his origins (yet again) during which the shirt and pants were part of a prison uniform put in place by Atlantis' tyrant of the day.  That at least added some sense to its composition.

I"m trying to analyze whether you used a brush to do the scales or you drew them individually because  I'm struggling to conceive how you could have done it either method.

It could be a hexagonal pattern deformed using a mesh to form it along their bodies. That tends to be the fastest way to do it.

I really enjoy how you tend to use a more rectangular torso style over the traditional heroic v-shape.  Imo, the triangluar shape always feels like something you're more likely to see in a gym or after a lot of very-specific, abdomen based excercises.  The squarer shape implies to me the idea of "I don't have time to go to the gym to do crunches, I'm too busy Saving Lives."  Which is a very hero-y sentiment to me.

I understand your desire to draw more natural body types, but these are getting rather uncharming, especially on the male side. Having that wide of a waistline is... yeah, maybe a burly 50-year old, but not a young man (I assume Aquanman is young in this pic, I'm not really into this universe). And Mera too... again I assume she has a lot of excercise as a superhero, why does she look like an average, lazy secretary who has her snacks at breaks? Yes, they shouldn't be skinny, but they should look their age and activity-level.
I don't want to lecture you on body types, you know all too well what you're capable of as you've done some amazing bodies in the past, it's just a humble observation.

I think it's a much more realistic depiction than traditional superhero 0% fat, 8hours a day in the gym, they're supposed to be real people with lives outside of working out.

The scales are gorgeous. I also love how the outline for the guy is... gritty. It gives him a sort of gruffer look, while her outline is completely smooth.
