Hard Boyle'd Imperfection

Another DC character that's high on my list of favorites is Bizarro. He seems to be pretty open to individual artists' interpretations these days. Eric Powell draws him like a mindless zombie, Ed McGuinness draws him like a beefy, chalky version of Supes. Honestly, I love seeing all the different variations of the big lug. But when it comes down to it, I prefer Curt Swan's classic vision of him, looking like he's chiseled out of stone and sporting some crazy bed-head. And that's what I was going for here. I'm pretty happy with how this sketch came out, though when I do a final full-body piece, I think I'll go a little more nuts with his hair...
Here's the blue line sketch:
And the color rough:
