Christopher Reeves, Superman Original Sketch Card by Jeff Lafferty
Hi everyone one. New video's up ... almost made my self-imposed Monday deadline, only missed it by about 20 minutes.

I think your going to like this one. It features the Superman commission I did for fellow YouTuber - EvoMasher ... please check out his channel and tell him thanks, he'd get a kick out of it.

What can I say about this one, other than I love this card, I think its one of my best one yet and I think it made a great video. ( I know that probably sounds cocky but ... I cant help it, I just really, really like the way this one came out)

I'll be doing a print of this piece soon (like in about three days) if you want to pre-order one, I'll throw in a freebie print along with your order (your choice, just email me JeffLaffertyIllustration@gmail.com and let me know which one you want after you order)






I also want to thank the musician ODi for her awesome music that I was allowed to use in the video, check her out at ... http://music.mevio.com/ or they're Myspace page at - http://www.myspace.com/odimusic

Thanks everyone who commented, liked, shared ... all that stuff, you guys are awesome!

Don't forget about the contest this month ... Share one of my videos on facebook twitter or any social media, comment and let me know that you did it, and you'll be entered to win the Mad Max pencil study.

I'll draw a name out of a hat on March 31st!


Good luck everyone and I'll see you Friday with the new podcast.
- Jeff

That's pretty cool, Jeff!
Reminds me of the first Superman movie I saw when I was a kid :)

48hlc48 said...

Jeff, this piece looks bigger than it is in reality. Watched the video and was very impressive indeed. Wonderfully rendered and executed. CR was the ultimate superman in my book.

Smoker said...

Very nice. He did some excellent work on that series and he did a lot of good work for spinal cord injuries.

Good job, Jeff!

pastel65 said...

Wow! Watched video. Wow!!!!!!!!!!! Pam

Terranova said...

I agree with 48hlc48: I thought, this was a big painting - something like a cinema poster.
Really love that painting.

Well, my family thinks, I am cooking atm - instead I was watching your videos - yor painting style and listening to the music. Very interesting and very relaxing. thanks a lot for sharing

Off now - in the kitchen

Dee Ray said...

Now THAT is something else. Christopher Reeve has been my favorite actor since a child in the 80s, and he remains so to this day even past his passing. Do u do these pieces to sell? This one is gorgeous.

Jeff Lafferty said...

Dee Ray ... Thanks Dee Ray, I appreciate the kind words.

I do sell the originals and also signed LE prints. This one was a commission, so its already sold, but I do have prints of it available in my store. Here's the link if your interested ... http://goo.gl/4qUKvU

Dee Ray said...

Thanks for the response Jeff. Wished I knew of your work sooner. I would of asked for a print for Christmas and had it matted/ framed. Nevertheless, great work. May I ask if u do other such comic related characters whether they're real people or not? Sorry. I'm sure your website will offer more detail. Thanks again!
