Big Barda!

Here's my rendition of Big Barda, one of The New Gods that Jack Kirby created while working for DC Comics in the the early 1970s.  This drawing is part of an ongoing (I hope!) trade with one of my comic art pals.  He received the original, which is hand-colored, and without a proper scan.  So here's the digitally colored version that I used as a birthday card for a friend a couple months back.  I also rendered digitally the "Kirby Krackle," a series of black dots that represent cosmic energy or cosmic dust or general space-age awesomeness.  In this case, they contain a secret birthday message...
