Superman by SaiyaGina Superman by SaiyaGina
Back from San Diego Comic Con! I had the best of times! I'll write about it tomorrow ;)

I made this fanart for the SDCC Souvenir Book celebrating Superman's 75th anniversary, and I got really lucky to get a full page feature on it! I've got to rush to make this work, but in the end I liked it quite much, just a little away from lots of shade, highlights and that kind of stuff. =D

I hope you like it!

Superman © DC Comics
Art © Gina Chacón
Made in SAI and Photoshop CS6

i really like the way this one is done. the birds and planes in the back..superman's hotness brought out in all its glory, and don't even get me started on that ribbon.

Me encanta la variedad de estilos que dominas. Anime/manga, comic occidental, más realista o más caricaturesco. Eso habla super bien de ti como artista =D

Me alegro que te hayas divertido, Gina. XD Espero lo hayas hecho por todos los que no podemos ir. ;P
No pero en serio, me anima el saber que una paisana tome papel en cosas tan importantes para esta industria. De veras eres una inspiración. ;D

Your work is of such quality that it almost makes the Big Blue Sue look good, and that's saying something when the subject is a DC "hero".

There has been recent discussion over the nature of today's comic books. Specifically, regarding the stories and exploits of the heroes and heroines themselves. People are beginning to wonder, with good reason in my opinion, if the comic book characters of this era are the legendary equivalent to those great myths of the Olympians, the Greek and Roman legends. The reason I bring this up is because this piece of work, whether by your intention or not, really captures the same feeling of power that you would feel when looking at a painting of say, Heracles slaying the Nemean Lion, or Zeus raining lightning from the sky.

In any case, this is pretty damn good.

I see that parallel as well. And some writers try to make the mythological comparison quite clear (see Grant Morrison's "12 Labors of Superman" from All-Star Superman). Hell, the JLA and the Avengers are basically modern day pantheons.

Pues amé está pieza. No me gusta super man, pero la manera en que lo hiciste me agradó bastante. Es un dibujo muy hermoso que si compraria para colgarlo en la pared.
