Well, since I finally managed to settle on a style for the Supermanica online encyclopedia, I thought it was time to start a new art thread for the artwork that can be previewed. I've settled on a more simplistic animated style that combines the great styles of Wayne Boring and Curt Swan that produce the "iconic" feel that I've been searching for. Here's the first one of the line. And naturally, Superman had to be the first one rendered.

Thanks, Gernot. Like I said, I'm striving for the "iconic" look for these characters. I've never agreed with the long, flowing cape look that characterizes the Post-Crisis Superman. I much prefer the shorter cape of the Plastino/Boring/Swan eras (which I'll duplicate for Superboy and Bizarro, too).

I'm currently working on the inking of Lois Lane, and then I'll start inking Hercules (just because the pencil work for him is already done). After that ... I wanna do a really offbeat character like maybe Mongul or (even larger) Validus ...

... which'll probably make me wanna draw the ENTIRE Fatal Five!  :twisted:

I just stole that Superman pic for my files, Bill!  LOL  

Be SURE to let us know when you do Superboy, Supergirl, Mongul (YES!), Lex Luthor, and Brainiac!  Wink

Just to let everyone know, I'm in the process of creating a library of emblems for the various characters in the Pre-Crisis Superman universe so I don't have to keep redrawing them over and over again. So far, I have the following:

Superman (Curt Swan style) (Used for Superman, Superboy, Supergirl, Superman 2965 and the various members of the Legion of Super-Pets)

Bizarro (simply the Curt Swan Superman emblem backwards)

Anti-Superman (the Curt Swan Superman emblem with a yellow "S" inset in black)

Superman (Wayne Boring style) (used for Superman 2956 and the original Super-Girl)

Superman (Modern Style) (used for Superwoman, Laurel Kent, Superboy-Prime, Superman 2020 and Superman Jr.)

Earth-2 Superman

The Defender (Lex Luthor's "heroic" identity on the planet Lexor)

Nightwing

Flamebird

Captain Thunder

Captain Marvel (Also used for Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., Uncle Marvel and Hoppy the Marvel Bunny)

The Flash (Barry Allen)

Batman (1960s style) (Also used for Anti-Batman)

The Composite Superman

Ultraman (Crime Syndicate of America)

These might also make good avatars, too. More to come ...
