    Hi all,
    Here is a sculpt I worked on, I did it from Walter O'Neal fabulous illustration.
    I also did the same logo from the last Superman Movie, and the patterns on his suit too.

    Great sculpt! I'd love to see this the next Superman movie. That cape is wonderful---any tips on how the cape was created?

    Thanks all for the comments.

    @fabianloing: Thank you. For the thigh I don't like so much when they are so muscular that they seems like ecorche, I know that's the way they do it in Comics, but I wanted to make a more realistic style.
    I took picture from the movie and you don't even see as much muscle as I did.

    @threetails: Thanks, for the suit it is pretty simple, I just layout the Uvs and did a seamless texture in photoshop, than use this B&W texture as alpha and apply a displacement in Tool submenu.

    @monstermaker: Thanks, do I have to say that I love your last work?

    @industripop: Thanks too, for the cape I don't have any special trick.
    The only thing is that I started to rough it from a cube instead of a plane, because that's really difficult to deal with border edges.
    Than I retopo it in 3Dcoat, took a few minute with the Slice tool, I just did a plane with retopo not the full volume.
    Than I use extract to give it a volume in Zbrush, the advantage is that I did it on a plane and the newly created face are clean.
    That's all I can say, but it's a bit technical.
    On the sculpting side there is really no big tip, that's just about getting some references, and playing with your napkin

    Didn't have the time to continue him for now, but I use some of my spare time to participate in Gnomon Challenge.
    This month theme was Dragon Fire, and I did a dragon

    But not an usual dragon, an Napoleonian officer dragoon (in French they are call Dragon like the creature because they were created while using a Dragon as an emblem, far before Napoleonian wars).

    Enough word, here it is.

    I spent 3 days on it, just figured out the challenge was running 3 days before the deadline.
    That's why some area are not really well done, I will try to pursue it later.
    Hope you like it.
