Superman Portrait by Protokitty Superman Portrait by Protokitty
Decided to do a Superman portrait for fun. Superman, much like Wonder Woman, is always a challenging subject. He's such a iconic character yet everybody has their own ideal Superman. It took some trial and error to figure out what worked for me but I'm pretty happy with this one. The 'S' is a little wonky I admit.

Photoshop over markers.
Created 6-3-13.

Holy wow. Amazing work! And your WW is one of my all-time favorites as well, so I'd say you're more than capable of taking on these iconic characters. :-)

Oh, wow! If I had an "ideal Superman" you nailed him right on the head! Here he looks simultaneously strong, proud, and determined, which to me is perfect! Your coloring is dazzling, as usual, and I love the strong shading you used. Your tweaks on photoshop round out the picture nicely, especially the highlights on his face and hair.(Very nice background as well, I always think of Superman being in the sky!)

Overall... just... beautiful! Loved it so much I almost started tearing up upon seeing it, ha ha! Amazing job here!

I can't wait to see Man of Steel. It will be the first Superman Movie i ever saw. I try to get into Superman since i remember hearing my Grandpa telling me us he had a dream he was Superman before he died in 2003. Which is funny since i came up with Dream Reader from a Dream too.
