Superman by michaelkutsche Superman by michaelkutsche
Ok, I'm obviously not very creative with the title here, any suggestions?
Personal work, all done in Corel Painter.

Edit: Thanks for all the nice title suggestions! I'm still thinking of which one would be most fun. "Man of Steel" kind of stands out to me, it exaggerates the irony of the piece.

For some reason one of Superan's old titles comes to mind. "The Man of Tomorrow"
They seldom concider what will happen to a man who's body is essentially overclocked on solar power over an extended period of time.

Interesting picture. An inherant sadness to his expression there.

Well, yknow, he's no ordinary man, he's kryptonian. From what I've seen from comics and mostly cartoons, Kryptonians look pretty normal when they're old, relative to what humans look like.

The feeling I get when viewing this work is of sadness that comes with old age, he is not a player anymore.

how is this ironic? If he is the man of steel, this would be what he would look like since older heavier beings are more powerful, although appearance has nothing to do with strength or power.
