This was a fun design to create. The character description said something about a traditional superhero suit and a stylised teardrop instead of the "S" of Superman. And he is Captain Lachrymose, so I thought to myself: "he is a emo kid".
So the hair style, pin bracelets and belt, just as the striped sleeves were easy. Then I just had to figured out the teardrop logo. Just turned the superman logo upside down and added a "all crying eye" right there. There you go!
Cheer up masons!
