Stargazing

Here’s a commission I just recently finished up of the the Daily Planet’s ace reporter spending the evening with Metropolis’ new golden boy:

In my head I was thinking this is pretty early on in their relationship. Lois is taking a break from jotting down notes for an interview, and Kal’s telling her where his planet used to be. Now that I’m finished though, I realize how depressing that it. “There is where my entire civilization blew up.” How romantic.

Anyhow, you can view the process animation for this piece HERE.

    The chicks dig the emotionally-vulnurable invulnurable-superhero thing

      But the good news is from Earth you’ll still be able to see it for thousands of years! Heck, with Superman’s eyesight, he should be able to watch his ancestors milling around…probably in gas guzzling Hummers.

        Well, it was his birthplace, but not his home, you know? “That’s where my ancestors were from” rather than “Yeah, that’s where everyone I knew died.” To me that means nostalgia and fascination more than anything bad.

          also true. still, it’s his origins. his race and stuff. still kinda depressing.
