The Man Of Steel by ProfessorAdagio The Man Of Steel by ProfessorAdagio

Please note, the image above is the result of my fan edit/manipulation which is my attempt at making the image have a different look and feel to the original. The original work can be found in the link below.


The origin story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early on he started to display superhuman abilities, which upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity. Superman resides and operates in the fictional American city of Metropolis. As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper. Superman's primary love interest is Lois Lane and his archenemy is supervillain Lex Luthor.[11] Superman has fascinated scholars, with cultural theorists, commentators, and critics alike exploring the character's impact and role in the United States and worldwide. The character's ownership has often been the subject of dispute, with Siegel and Shuster twice suing for the return of legal ownership. Superman has been labeled as one of the greatest comic book heroes of all time.[12]

Doesn't look that much different compared to the original, but on the other hand, the original already looks so good that really, what could you do without messing it up? :shrug:

You've done well with the laser vision, and the lighting effects on both the shield and the shoulder do a good job of showing just how bright and powerful it really is. Pretty sure that whoever's on the receiving end of that will feel it in the morning... =p

Overall, a good manipulation, and I hope you can continue. :)
