IF (Illustration Friday) 2/20/15, the topic was Metropolis. The only thing that came to mind with this topic was the last son of Krypton (that or the Fritz Lang movie of the same name). I opted for the material I was more familiar with, and had a good idea for a layout already in mind. I wanted to capture the duality of Kal-El, who he was, and who he has become. I found some good reference since he's been around for ages, and tried to capture him as best as possible while interjecting my own take. I did a lot research to make sure I captured the primarily elements of him, and his background appropriately. This piece is late, and I didn't make it in time to submit it for IF, but I wanted to finish it as I have so many works that I am backlogged on now. I'm really happy with how this one turned out as well, and I think I've made a lot of adjustments in my normal approach to make this a successful piece. The piece is entirely digital done in Painter.
