My "Superman" entry for the new Kubert student sketch blog "The Badass Zone" [link]
I chose the topic for our first sketch challenge.
My first thought after I chose Superman for the topic was: lace-up boots. Then I decided to draw a Superman design without referencing ANY other Supermans.
After finishing this, I figured the guy looked too young, so I came up with the story that he is a goverment-engineered Superman to combat the original Superman. The original Superman has gone rogue, and the government has used his DNA to create someone to find him.
Also, he keeps a "kripto-knife" in his thigh sheath to kill Superman when he finally finds him.
