my first post-superman redesign
Hey, I'm new to PJ, and this is my first post. I'm raw meat! I'd greatly appreciate crits and suggestions!
Anyways, this was an idea that my cousin and I came up with, and this was the result... I'm planning on doing more with it, but I'd like some 2nd, 3rd, and 4th opinions!
I can see maybe this as Superman's son or even Superboy. The whole idea behind the concept doesn't fit the history of Superman. As far as the design. There are some anatomy issues. For instance his left arm, foreshortening and shape needs work. Place yourself in front of a mirror with your arm like in the drawing and use it for reference. The blurred background gives nothing for the character. Leaving out the background might be a good idea or just developing a clearer one. Where it is detailed I like the character. The overall color job is good and the shoes are nicely detailed. Maybe putting this drawing back on the old drawing board and playong around with the concept more might help. This could be a really great illustration with some work. Or you could just trash the whole drawing and start all over. Hey, its been done several times even by the masters.
I'll be sure to address the anatomical issues. As for the background, I totally see what you mean... Oh, and sorry for not clarifying this earlier, but this was a 'just for fun' piece... More of a 'what if' rather than basing it on the actual canon of Superman's history. Anyways, i'll try fixing it and then update it for further crits. Thanks
He looks VERY 1980's.
The red headband and questionable sleeveless vest make me think that he's an extra from The Warriors.
Was that intentional?
Uhh, no... actually now that you brought that up, I may take this back to the original sketch and try again. Hopefully the next one will be retro-free...
note to self: stay more aware of clothing styles
It's been really hard to find time to work on this due to college... I hope to find time this weekend...

I like it as a retro costume though, like something from that Batman Superman Generations series that DC did awhile back. now I want to see supergirl in some legwarmers,
I thought it was the lead singer of Lover Boy. XD
