Also, this sketch exemplifies how I like to really pay attention to both age and power set of a particular character. To draw someone looking younger than a traditional super hero in their 20's or 30's you've got to thin out the body and apply less definition to their musculature and frame. Also as a runner, I wanted to suggest giving him that body type. My favorite artists always pay attention to this and Kid Flash seemed like a great chance to practice that approach.
Fun sketch, and as it didn't take me too long, I want to start offering these at cons as a more affordable sketch option.
