Awesome work as usual. Great pose, perspective, colours and, well, everything. I like the cape. It may not have a realistic flow, but it nonetheless looks good. :D

Friggin' great work here. In a short time you've become one of my favourite artists here. There is nobody here with a better understanding of light and you use it masterfully to demonstrate texture, no matter how subtle. I love the work on the cape. Wonderful folds and texture!
I'm not really big on the deep sepia background, though. The colour looks nice in the highlights and shadows but in the midtones, I think it ends up looking a little muddled and...ugly. I can't help but think using the photos' original colours with a 50% sepia overlay might have been more striking. I'm also slightly bothered by the persistent centering in the image's base. It creates a triangular shape pointing upwards, that just seems strange since it's at the bottom. Centering the text and images feels a little easy. It might simply be better off without the S insignia. The word Superman is striking enough in that nice silver.
Overall, this is an amazing piece of work. I always love seeing your name in the update. You never disappoint.

fanastic job. My only jibe is that the blue is too deep cyan-yellow, and should be a little more blue or magenta to tie into the background better. Overall, spectacular, i love the cape, I think if u were worried about the butterfly effect, tho, u could've had him swooping down instead of from down-to-up. GREAT work, keep it up!

Yet another absolutely gorgeous piece.
I wouldn't be surprised if this one gets picked up by some website as an "Official" poster like your previous..Look to the Sky.
And I think it looks like Routh... when I saw the thumbnail I was sure it was him.

Hello I this is my first post or reply to art work here. Nice to meet everyone or at least those of you that may read this. ;) I have only posted three images myself so far and get real inspired by all the cool images I am seeing on this site. As for the image by darthbakpao here I really like the composition and color usage. It has a nice mood and style going on. I now want to seek out and see your other works. Keep creative and I look forward to more images. Rickout
