Exclamation Redesigning Superman CHALLENGE

Title says it all folks. The end of Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr's Superman is coming to a close and with it we have Superman gaining a new power in the Solar Flare [or was it Super Flare?] as well as a new suit since his other New52 suit got destroyed. I was unimpressed with what JRJR produced as far as a new costume but I kinda dig the new power.

This challenge is to try and get a few of the more active posters/artists to try and +1 JRJR and GJ. Hold on to your suspension of disbelief and imagine a world where you got to have final say in what new power Superman would add to his arsenal and what his new costume would look like. You can incorporate the new power in the image or suit if you'd like or simply describe what you would give him in terms of power upgrade. Would you go ahead and keep the Solar Flare?

So there it is. I figure if we can get at least 5-10 participants we can have a vote afterwards for which one is the superior design for the Man of Steel. Who's up for the CHALLENGE?

I'm definitely in. A few questions though.
1) Can I do multiple designs
2) Can I use microheroes, drawings, or both?
3) Can I also do a movie design or alternate design?

One design per participant, micros are fine but I'm probably gonna do both since I dont have a proper scanner or program to color my pencil work.

I would just go back to the classic. Most characters only dream of becoming as Iconic as Superman. So why needlesly try to update his look when his iconic look is already almost unversally accepted? It seems like shooting one's self in the foot to constantly update a look that already works. plus the fanbase never really gets on board with it, Remember Superman red and Blue. or Ho much people bithced about his long hair days?

Deadline? And there has to be more than us wanting to do this. THIS should also be a monthly thing. I know that TKL has loads of ideas....

Tuesday March 31st. We can try to do one a month if we can get enough people behind it. Already got an idea for another Challenge.

I had a moment last night and a new redesign came to me in an instant. Most original Superman design I've come up with in YEARS that doesn't resemble a half dozen other redesigns in my drawing notebook. I almost took a pic last night and sent it to you, Goat, but figured I'd surprise you. Hopefully I can find somebody to color it well enough or I'll just have to make a micro alongside it to show off the altered color palette.

As far as an additional power to go with it? I personally liked the power upgrade from All Star Superman where his protective aura could also cover whatever he's holding/carrying. I just didn't care for the visual and the color they chose...

Um... it's an art challenge. The whole point is the art LOL

However, I wouldn't mind your thoughts on what you'd change with the costume and the power upgrade you had in mind.

One week to go and not a single entry? I can't seem to work my scanner and I doubt I could color one of my sketches so I'm gonna have to break down and go micro style. I know Goat also started over on his design in favor of something with a little more mph.

My original redesign had a coupled armor bits around his neck and wrists, with a yellow cape and a white bodysuit with the KC red/black S. The design overall was supposed to mimic Space Ghost's. My new one? I went simplistic with it, w/no cape and there isn't any blue in the suit at all. I'll post the micro soon after I drop my son off at his grandma's!

Okay, I realized I never posted how to go about entering a redesign/concept. Post your redesign with a brief description of why you went the route you did, as well as a power upgrade to go along with the suit since it seemed as though that was what Geoff and JRJr were building up to.

______________________________________________



The Design: I called this one shortly after sketching it out 'Superior Superman'. I started thinking about a no-nonsense Superman who might possibly forget about his Clark Kent side for awhile and be a bit more of a pro-active badass. As for the costume itself I asked myself what his current New52 suit was lacking. Aside from the red underwear on the outside, he was missing his gold S shield on his red cape that also shows up on the backs of Superboy's leather jackets from time to time. So I decided to make the S itself actually gold and not just whatever yellow is in the color palette and on a red shirt to make it stand out from the usual blue tops Superman wears. I went super simplistic with the details and didn't want to add a ton of seam lines or armor. Just black pants with black leathery boots with a little detail around the tops. The S would be raised similar to Superman's New52 suit, and his sleeves would be a little longer and kinda go over the tops of his hands cause face it... sometimes long sleeves just do that. I figure if he's gonna get his hands dirty he can roll them up if he wants to go all farm boy on something.

The Added Power: Invulnerability Transfer - Think of it like this, instead of cowering behind Superman as he protects you from bullets or energy blasts or a building falling down on top of you... what if he just held your hand and gave you his invulnerability while in contact? What if a building was falling apart and Superman used this power to strengthen the building long enough for civilians to get clear? Loosely inspired by the added bio electric shield Superman used at the beginning of All Star Superman.

Just a few more days left guys, I'm debating if an art challenge a month would actually be worth it with this small amount of interest and actual entries.

Ok, here's my Superman redesign:


I tried to stick as close to the original suit as possible, all I've really done is modernise it a little. I did his hair like Henry Cavil and replaced the red trunks and yellow belt with a yellow and red belt similar to the one in Smalville Season 11. I think this design is nice and basic, isn't too complicated and won't look dated in ten years time, it should hopefully make the fans of old and new comics happy. As for the extra power, I decided to skip that, just leave him be.
