Captain Atom

I’ll be honest, I didn’t realize until much later in my comic reading that a lot of the DC heroes I grew up on were from older publications and had already gone through several iterations prior to my discovering them. Imagine my surprise that Captain Atom was one of these, and not just an all metal man from Justice League International from the 80’s. I took this back to Ditko’s designs from the original Charlton comics.

The original Atom has a orange and yellow colour scheme, so rather than shy away from that I just went a bit overboard on the other colours and added some fun space rainbows and well, atoms. If I had to do this again I might up the saturation a bit on the background elements and take it into a less subdued space.
