Hi there! I'm a cartoonist/animator about to self-publish my first graphic novel which I'll be showcasing here along with some other art for fun and feedback.

First off, a couple re-designs for Superman,

and Batman.

Hey, welcome.

WHat do you use to illustrate?

I'm generally a huge fan of redesigns, so it's cool to see someone else's take on characters. I think the S-shield is a little too small on Superman.

Is it because the cape crescents are too small?

Cleaned up the mask a bit too. Thanks for the input. :D

I start with a thumbnail in my shetchbook to get the pose I want, then I fire up my Wacom cintiq and rework the sketch in Alias Sketchbook pro. I do most of the pencils in Alias then I import the sketch to Manga Studio 4 for ink, paint, and perspective rulers for BGs. Alias has amazing pencil emulators, nothing feels as natural when it comes to digital pencils but the more I use Manga, the more I just use their raster pencil emulator. It's not bad at all and I could see myself working completely in Manga Studio 4 eventually.

I'll try to bump it up a bit and see what it looks like. Personally I hate giant sized \S/, but ya there's still some room for it to be bigger. That's what I love most about digital art, I can tweak it forever!

Voila, %15 more \S/.

He used to be Apache Chief, but that was too confusing so he's been re-named. :wink:

Isn't that racist to call him just Vulcan? How will we know he's black? :lol:

Ah, very cool.

I think you should work on varying your lineweights a little more to add more depth to the composition.
