This piece is two fold for me...

I love the classic almost andrew loomis feel to it. The pose is strong and the redering is super clean.

Your vision of supes here is fantastic too. A little bit more alien in feel and that is is soo slick. I'm a sucker for personal takes on classics and this grabs me.

great stuff.

Very slick. I love the dramatic shading here...The shadows get sooo dark, the lighting on the chest looks very...dramatic. Yeah. ^^;

I agree with the others who mention it updating his look and keeping it in line with classic looks. I don't pretend to know much about his classic looks in particular, but I do like how elements of this design are very slick and modern, but it somehow captures a classic superhero feel at the same time. I think it comes from his physique looking "realistically ideal," rather than overly-ridiculously-musclebound. It is obvious he's very muscular and his muscles are emphasized, but still, they look believably ideal rather than having like a million bulges of muscle covering every inch of his arms. I dunno how to explain it I guess, even though I've mentioned something similar commenting on your pics before. ^^;;

I like the shading on his face, and how you use it to more effectively define his features.

Very awesome work on this pic. : )

Wow! This is easily one of my top 5 favorite pictures of Superman. It seems like there are certain artists that have a style that seems almost tailored to fit a character, like Frank Miller and Batman or Ed Benes and Birds of Prey. I think you totaly OWN Superman. You not only nailed the look, but more importantly you got the attitude and presence. The DC big wigs are idiots if they don't let you do some Superman books.
I love the "S" idea you had and the idea of the alien one piece suit. I mean if his body is invulnerable and his suit wasn't at least nearly invulnerable he would have quite a few wardrobe "malfunctions" during his battles. The only way to resolve this that makes sense would be that his suit has to have come from the advanced technology of his homeworld. If you go with the movie descriptions, and Kryptonian technology being based off of crystals, then it's possible that these suits could be "grown" on rather than pulled on.

Now that is f***ing beautiful. You have captured the feel of a Max Fleischer Superman, updated the costume without changing it at all. Then, you pushed it a level that, I believe, Alex Ross will say, " You are the man!" Damn that is good.

The "S" is tight, reminds me of the spearment gum commercial.

I think you're really good at anatomy. :nod: It shows in all of your drawings. I envy that. Do you draw the anatomy from memory or do you ever use reference? Just curious. Even though I "know" what the human body looks like, I'm still stuck using reference.

I like the boots myself. I'm not as keen on the S-symbol, but at least you're trying something different. :nod: Perhaps it wouldn't seem so jarring if the diamond portion of the emblem was also three dimensional. :shrug:

Thanks...For simple standing shots I don't use ref
But if its an odd pose ore forshortening I might.
I don't have models like some artist I know...

Well the \S/ symbol was inspired by the smallville Kryptonian glyphs they used.
I think is should look almost alien and only happens to look like the letter "s".:)

:icondalenorvell:
DaleNorvell Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2007
Yeah, I agree with the alien S-theory. I like how Mark Waid established in "Birthright" that it was a Kryptonian symbol that was important to their culture, so supes wears it as a tribute to his heritage. Then Lois actually dubs him superman because to her it looks like an "S". In the original movie it was the "El" family crest cuz Jor-El had it on and the other men had other symbols.

A bit more of an alien flare compared to the classic costume, but it works. :clap:

I'll have to invest in prisma pencils. They look really nice on this.

Plan on coloring it, buddy o' pal?
