Retropolis by iskandarsalim Retropolis by iskandarsalim
Done in Photoshop CS spanning within 5-6 days. Tools : Poser 5.0, CorelDraw 12 and PSCS.

This was originally intended as a Jim Caviezel's Superman artwork. He's my favorite actor and in my opinion, would make a great Superman. Halfway through i decided to change it into a Routh's Superman artwork because i found the particular headshot more suitable. If you notice, Routh's headshot here is similar to the previous Superman artwork i made, this time with a lot of improvements and modifications. It was originally based on a screencap taken from one episode of the "Cold Case" TV series. I hope the result does look like Routh, or at least resembles him.

I read that Singer is going for a retro-look for the Superman Returns movie. That's what i'm trying to achieve with the sephia or brownish tone.

The "Metropolis" in the background was created using collages of New York. The perspective seems a bit off, i wish i could spend more time on it, but i'm too exhausted and lazy for that. Everything else were added to achieve an "official" poster feel.

You will find plenty superheroes and characters in ~iskandarsalim's gallery, but Retropolis is clearly one that stands out. Does something this good (and with Superman) really need a longer write-up? ( Featured by dinyctis )

Superman Returns was an amazing movie! I really wish they had made a sequel! Brandon Routh was PERFECT for Superman!!!!!
