The Man Of Steel by DanSchoening The Man Of Steel by DanSchoening
I decided the first piece of art for this year would be to revisit a few older designs that I thought needed more to them. I may only tweak certain things I feel are lacking though. In this instance I liked the pose, but not the design overall. Let's start with the toughest Kryptionian this side of the solar system, :superman:

You should take a crack at Booster Gold. He'd work well in your style.

All these DC drawings are amazing, and really capture the heart of the characters. Keep up the amazing work.

The overall cut of his super-jib, right until you get down to the waist, actually reminds me a lot of Mr. Incredible. Of course, the legs here are way too long to really mistake the two.

Plus: "No capes." ;)

Nice work Dan, keep it up. I'm not sure about the shoulders though, kinda pointy, looks almost like shoulder pads.
Stay golden Pony-Boy.
Happy New Year.

Nice! I do appreciate the input man :) My idea behind all of the statue pics I do, is that they are like model sheets. Now that I'm comfortable with the character and the design is down, I can draw him any which way I need too. I agree, Superman needs to be lifting a plane or beating up aliens :D

wonderful update. He looks kinda ood, as if feeling awkward about the guy (or girl) to his left, but it adds to his farmboy personality, I guess. Again, great pic!

I was personally never a very big fan of the Superman design very much. You've done a very fine job presenting him here to us in your style, but I'm biased: he's still just Superman.

You're such a fantastic artist, though. I'd just really love to see you draw Superman, you know, a little different than that.

And now I suck because I sound like such a jerk. I don't mean anything bad by my comment, I assure you.
