He's really super, man by Jin-Saotome He's really super, man by Jin-Saotome
Superman the Movie was one of my absolute favorite movies when I was a kid. Christopher Reeves blew me away as the perfect Superman and I hope I did him justice here. Superman was made from a DC Universe basic body resculpted so his muscles have a more uniform 'real world' look to them. The head and hands came from the New Krypton Superman and the S logo is a custom printed decal. I constructed a magnetic right palm so you can attach him under a metal object and appear like he's flying, holding it up! One cape and classic movie paint job later, Superman was ready to save the day.

The face is spot on, the magnetic palm is sheer genius and the flying base is great :)

His eyes are creeping me out, they're like that painting of Jesus in the Vatican. His eyes are even creepier in person :noes:

"Christopher Reeve blew me away as the perfect Superman"

He made a great work as the Man of Steel, and this Supercustom is a good homage.

something about the size of the irises and the cheekbones make him seem kinda MORE alien than he's supposed to be. Maybe it's just me
Haha, cool idea with magnetic palm! Up up and away! lol
