What's in a name?

Cosby. For some reason I thought the man's last name had more to it. Perhaps something like Cosmolopouloustrosity or something, and friends had shortened it to CosBOOM, because pronouncing it properly made your tongue explode.

Shows what I know.. and for a guy who learns something new almost every day, it clearly ain't much, hey?

Nathan Cosby. Laurence deSouza. Danielle Corsetto. Dan Simon.
Mark Millar(Miller?). Jack Kirby. Boris Vallejo. Obsidian Abnormal(I don't know if that's his real name).
Names of people skilled in either writing or drawing(painting/illustrating/etc), sometimes both. Is it their names that gives them their powers?...Nooooo.. or is it?

What's in a name?.. typically, personality traits tend to follow names. Think about this for a second. How many people named _____ do you know that share not only the same name, but also personality traits that others named ______ don't seem to have?
Be careful what you name your kids.

Anyhow.. here's another shot at Superboy's new costume for that twitter dealie #NateWouldLikeToSee,
yesterday's was purely for the twitch-effect. The below image is a rough, shaded rough, and quick-coloured rough. I like the head on the second rough better, but these are only quick sketches, much like everything that gets posted here.. well, there's a few (very very few) items that've had more than 2 hours put into them, from initial thought to colour. Not too sure how I feel about the whole inverted-triangle body-style for the 3rd(coloured) rough. For SuperMAN, maybe.. but SuperBOY?, not really.

And yes, the colours are only there for an idea of what it might look like in-colour.
