I'm very happy with this page. The week I started to draw it, I saw a
tweet by comic artist Phil Hester
about some advice he got on his art.
Ice hockey?!! Hmmm...
I didn't look at any photos of ice hockey players, but I started to
differently about my drawing, and as a result, I redrew the poses of both figures to get much more of a sense of motion into the drawing. Originally I had both of them just standing in upright, heroic poses, chests out, hands on hips - very static and stiff. The wonderful thing about being an artist is that, hopefully, you are always learning how to improve. The flipside of that is going through bouts of self-doubt, thinking your own work is not very good. Boy oh boy, did I go through some MAJOR art doldrums after completing this page! I guess that all any of us can do is keep working at it!
This will be the last update before the New Year!! 2020 has been a hard year for so many of us. I want to sincerely thank you all for reading the comic and following me on social media this year. I really, truly appreciate it, and I hope Steamroller Man has given you some laughs, or at least a smile, to distract from the trials of everyday life this year.
Here's to a better 2021 for us all!

Thanks for the commentary, I will be studying this page for a long time! Night Knight's pose is so dynamic! I really like his legs, and the costume is comic genius! "Fighting crime till bedtime!" Love it! Been waiting eagerly for this page, was not disappointed!

Wish I looked that good in a sleeper!

....the pillow-fisted hero of the night. These puns are...something else again.

Don't judge me, but I think Sleep Tyke is so cute. He reminds me of my son.

Awesome splash page! Definitely a good choice to go with more movement here when introducing Night Knight and Sleep Tyke.
The comment about use of ice hockey as a reference was interesting. I wonder if other ice sports (ice skating, skiing, etc.) or other spots with fluid movement (roller blading) can also apply here.

Five stars just for that goofy hero alone, this is just amazing.

Ditto the others' comments, and his cape is held on by a
Oh gawd! Those must be getting hard to find nowadays!

The concept, costume, and name of Night Knight had me laughing out loud.
Can't wait to get to know these two better!

Night Knight...love that.
Hey, I was sort of right...there is a teddy bear in the picture.

What's his Achilles heal? Bedtime stories? Rock-a-bye-Baby? Melatonin?! Another beautiful page!
