Popeye and Superman
The above sketch of The Man of Steel and The Spinach Powered Sailor is one of those pieces that took many drawings to get it just right.
I had Superman's pose pretty much set from the start, only a few minor changes were needed from the initial drawing. But Popeye, that's a different matter. I did five different poses of Popeye with his arms crossed to be able to stand back to back with Superman. It was only when I realized that I had to arch his back that the pose was right.
This is the main promotional piece I did for my "Popeye vs Superman" story,
it had to be "special"!
