Superman concept art done for a client's video game pitch which ended up being scrapped. Some of the images were leaked online in lowquality but this is the one that i was most comfortable with sharing.
The idea was to how to modernize Superman's briefs rather than completely getting rid of them. We chose an angular approach that would mimic the House of El's angular corner. We wanted to keep the influence around Alex Ross' characterization of Superman, keeping him bold and thick. The stubble was an addition that I thought was interesting and gave him more of a rugged look.
