Hey all,

So...word on the street is that Rocksteady may have the Man of Steel make an appearance in the next Arkham City installment. True or not, I decided to run with that idea. I wanted a Superman that could be from that world, dark and gritty as it is. But Superman would be the light, the beacon of hope from a brighter, yet no less gritty Metropolis.

So, I sculpted onto the figure's sleeves and legs a bit of Aves to creat a more textured suit, similar in feel to the Arkham game's Batman's modernized tactical suit. It looks realistic and practical, yet maintains the classic look. The boots I kept clean and with a stylized split down the center. He is an alien, after all, so his suit, while practical, could get away with a more clean look as well.

Sculpted the 'S' logo in the upcoming Man of Steel movie style, as it looks great. The head is from a Marvel Select Alex Ross Captain America, unmasked, with sculpted hair. The head is perfect for two reasons: 1) scale is spot on. 2) the face looks like an actual real, mid-30's guy. The face has a seriousness, a depth, and he looks like a grown man. Funny note: the hair was sculpted up in a 'windswept' look, but apparently got heavy and drooped in the overnight drying process! Oh well, a stylist I am not!

Cape is cut cloth, sealed and wired for poseability!

EXPERIMENT COMPLETE!

Don't know why I haven't commented on this one yet, but I've been back to look at it SEVERAL times. Of all your custom, I think this one is my favorite of all. The blues you used are perfect for Superman (in my opinion) and so are the reds. The head choice is astounding and very distinctive. Finally the cape and the sculpted symbol are just terrific! MAN you have come a long way...then again, haven't we all?

I love it! that face suits him really well, and though I like dark colors better, your paint apps are beautiful. Good job!

I honestly wouldn't mind it one bit if Supes looked like this in Arkham City! Beautiful paint work and sculpt work as always, fitz. However, I have a feeling that should Superman appear, he will probably wear muted colours, darker blues and faded reds.
fitzjedi - Tuesday, July 10, 2012
I think you are right about the muted colors, IF he appears, man.
