Man Of Steel by Valzonline Man Of Steel by Valzonline
A personal commission. The client wanted a portrait of Henry Cavill (the actual Superman from the upcoming movie) but with the classic Superman costume... lot of fun to paint!
I'm a big fan of all the classic superhero costumes, not much of the actual 'more realistic' costumes that we see on nowadays movies... but well, I think I'm an old fashioned and purist artist :P
I'm trying hard to finish all my previous delayed commissions (Dallas bud, you're next!) but I'm doing my best... please be patient with me :nod:
Hope you like it.

Good job here, Val. There's an actual portrait of Henry Cavill in the Christopher Reeve Superman suit that exists; it was more of a joke, really, as the suit Henry wore in "Man of Steel" is pretty rad. :)

Looks great!  It really does look like Henry Cavill.  I prefer the original costume myself.

something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Great work.

This is great work, and I totally agree. There is something contrived and overly complex about the current take on costumes that - in my opinion - loses the iconic simplicity of the classic designs.
Anyway, You have some truly incredible work in your gallery, well done indeed!

i like the old fashioned costume for the memories as a child I do think is necesary to improve it and make it more serius and more alien but the costume form the man of steel movie is just tooo tight, how can superman even breath or move?
love what you did with this piece, love the hightlights, the smoothness of the colors and his body is really great.

You're welcome :D

From what I read its supposed to be somewhat like the Dark Knight movies and be more realistic but who knows how it will be until it comes out. :shrug:

I just wish they would focus on some of his other bad guys besides Lex Luthor and General Zod. :(

I think the old costumes were always too campy looking. I'd rather see them in clothes that people might actually wear (though they still tend to over do the "lingerie" thing with the ladies).
