Legion of Superheroes. by MBirkhofer Legion of Superheroes. by MBirkhofer
Fantastic pencils by Francis Manapul.
[link]

Color: me.
He posted the pencils on his deviant, and I wanted to try my hand.

I wasn't familiar with the characters so I had to rely on reference. Which was the published version done by JD Smith.
When coloring something like this, that was officially done by someone else, I usually try and avoid looking at it, to avoid influence. In this case, I used it for a character guide, hence the notation. (Although the technique and coloring is completely differant.)
