TRDL 2016 Series, No. 19 – New Superman [Kenan Kong]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Nation-Shifted Supers. I’ve done a few of these in the past, my favorite being my old Chinese and Russian Iron Men, but ever since the promo material came out for this new book I was interested in taking a stab at the new Chinese Superman. I like that he’s tall and lean and cocky. The design is aesthetically pleasing in the colors (WW less so) but the logos are weird. I kind of like the way the Wonder Woman design incorporates some cultural queues, though. Anyway, all digital, all fun!
