Superboy Expressions by philbourassa Superboy Expressions by philbourassa
A couple of expression shots of Superboy. I usually do these by drawing over storyboard panels or actual frames of the animation in order to put the characters "on model" and create more diverse reference for the board artists and animators.

Easily one of the strongest character designs of the series. He has a distinct look to his features.

Epic work!, I am a big fan of Superboy as he is seen in "Young Justice", and here you can see him in all his badassness.
I found this so inspiring, when I look at this I want to grab a pencil and start working on my own drawings.
Once again: Great work!

I always come back to this image. I can't help but admire your work. Seriously, very inspiring stuff. And quite honestly, even though the Super-family have been my favorites from DC, Superboy has always been the coolest. And really, this version is everything I expected him to be and more. Great work man. Great work.

Great job on Conner, er, Supey, he looks very much like how I think of him. Though I like the classic costume, I'm glad you gave Supey Jr. the newer costume.

Can I say how wrong DC is doing all this revamp, post "Flashpoint" thing?

Young Justice is setting the example on how these characters should be handled! Not relaunching, not reinventing characters... just giving them the proper care: good stories, really talented artists, top-notch animation and character development!

Im a huge fan of this messy, confused, angst-driven Superboy! Hes trying his best to be a hero, but having such disfunctional history, we can blame him for being like this! The limitary shoes and pants, along with the classic black t-shirt, is a no-miss!

Mr Bourassa, you and all creative crew behind this show deserve so much acclaim. You guys are making history. The show is way better than the comics, right now. Period.

The many expressions of superboy:
Frowns, growls, more frowns, a small smile here a smirk there, and finally EVEN MORE FROWNS! XD

I love Superboy largely because of all his expressions! For such a stoic character who hardly says anything with his mouth, he says SO much with his face.... <3

I agree so much! I loved how the animators could just somehow use Connor's face to convey all his thoughts.

Too bad he doesn't have the awesome haircut from the Titan's Tomorrow arc but I love that you made Superboy with his more casual looking desing than a whole suit!

You guys did a great job I hope for many more years of this series.
