In 2009 I posted an old sketch of an elderly Superman, stating my hopes to get around to painting it “very soon”. Apparently by very soon I meant four years later. Sometimes time is my my Kryptonite.
So here he is. A Superman, ravaged not by Lex Luthor or General Zod but by the super villain that is time.
This image was digitally painted in Photoshop using a tablet. I’ve wanted to attempt a more painterly effect, and feel I’m headed in the right direction. The process and outcome feels and looks the way it did in my days of brush and canvas work, so I’m pleased overall.
