A drawing I did of one of Jose Shuster's early Superman concepts.
Classic is always great no matter what the time.
Love the look of this piece.
Awesome Great Work
Only one thing I can say: Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster would have LOVED this. Great work, captures the character and the sense of menace.
Man, I dig this. Gotta love that original Supes!
I think I'll always love early Superman more. I wish SOMEONE would just have a spin-off which used THIS Superman in modern-day. Some would say they're the same character. I would say that those people are fools. They have the same tights and little red briefs, but let's face it. Modern-day Superman is portrayed as a demigod who is only shown as being REALLY good or REALLY evil (whenever he does something reprehensible, he really goes all-out. Usually doesn't happen though). The old Superman was more of an anti-hero, but he was consistent. His costume didn't say 'Here is a man who forgot to put his underpants on the inside,' it said 'Here is a man who looks like a professional wrestler. Except professional wrestlers don't throw cars at you.'
Hello, I haven't seen THIS guy in a while... I HAVE seen a sanctimonious character who's been relegated to godhood status since he flies and shoots lasers from his eyes and wears a similar outfit. But it's been quite some time since I've seen the 'Super-Man'. Who, by the way, is a much more awesome badass. Very nice picture.
Muy bueno, me gusta ese primer traje, las botas me parecieron muy interesantes. Excelente las sombras y tintas.
that looks great, i like the "half tone" effect!
wow, just awsome?
I've always loved this design; I don't know why.
Yeah, me too. Because it's very simple and basic about it immediately gets to the heart of the character.
Oldschool = sweeeeeet
Man, the drama here! This is how I like my Superman... vaulting through the night sky with that bemused look on his face, patiently sorting out the wretched mess we humans make of things.
Thanks. I just got the idea of doing another view of that famous cover with Superman watching the results of an atomic bomb drop. I did try to give it the feeling of Superman being above it all.
And... old school superman !
