Today’s post is my variation on Superman via Steam Punk. So imagine that Krypton sent it’s last son to Metropolis during the Victorian Age. My guess is that the presence of aliens would have changed our path a bit. Here we see a version of Lex that has joined with Brainiac to make the best of the technology of the age. The aviator scarf is my nod to a cape without breaking the rules I learned from The Incredibles- No Capes!
I started this one with a pencil drawing and then colored it in Photoshop. Thanks to my brother I used a wacom tablet to do the shading on the background. I really enjoyed that, but ditched it for the main characters because I wanted to go faster and I’m used to the mouse. I will have to restrict my tools soon so that I force myself to use new ones, but I liked what I got out of this illustration and I think the scratchy pencils match the scene.
Now I’m going to go try to imagine the Superman theme on a pipe organ.
