Here's my entry for the Superman redesign over at project rooftop. Not sure when they'll put up all that stuff so I'm putting mine up now. I've tried before to send something to project rooftop, but it was after they'd already done a character, I don't know, but this is the first time I'll hopefully get something there, and hopefully people will like it. I went for more of a coat-tail effect because I thought it would look interesting in flight and even when he's just standing. I like it when things drape, but I didn't want to just go with a traditional cape. That's why I created this kind of tunic-y thing, not sure how it'd be classified. I have the little diagram up top how it works. But I figured it'd fold up pretty easily, and the rest of it is simple enough to keep with the iconic feel.
I was really sad that I didn't get to go to Heroes convention. Soon my friends that went should be getting back, telling me how awesome it was, and I'll be sad that I didn't get to go. Next year I definitely have to make it. Though it might be a good thing I didn't go, because I'm working on a sketchbook/artbook that is shaping up nicely. It's better not to rush stuff like that. I've been looking over pricing, etc. I'll probably do it through ka-blam, then I can sell it on indy-planet. That way you guys can order it online. It'll have a lot of new stuff, and the first collected version of Rick Dangerous.
