Kirby Superman Final by dcjosh Kirby Superman Final by dcjosh
So i kinda changed things around a bit more

i wasnt quite happy with the first couple versions [while yeah, i still like 'em they just didnt quite feel "done". ever happen to you?]

so yeah. Kinda redid some things. I originally had the clouds as just a kind of gradient [didnt want to distract from superman too much] but it did end up looking kind of plain. so i went in and gave them a little form. tried giving the rest of the planet some kind of a water texture but it didnt end up working well here.

so yeah. i dropped the yellow light in the top right. ended up looking too green and eh. just didnt feel like it fit. so i dropped it. added some bright rim light to the right side. to really make him pop a little more. adjusted some of the contrast so the rendering gives him a little more form.

tweaked the space bkg a little bit. that one bright star by his head was distracting me too much so i ended up losing it

blah blah

i like this one better :P


hope y'all do too

Very nice! I like the lasers, and the starfield is really good! Did you have a particular method for that?
And, I might be missing something obvious - why is it called "Kirby Superman"? Is it based on one that Jack Kirby did?

yep got it
may be the angle of the heat vision is not inline with his body line. his body suggests that the beams should be a bit more upwards and to our right
and lastly i believe his left heel is sticking out a bit too...
this version really is much better than the others though
they are minor glitches so in my book this is one hellova job.. a better coloring than i could ever do anyways :D
again kudos :D
