Tired Superman by FionaMeng Tired Superman by FionaMeng
R.I.P Steve Jobs.

This image wasn't original created for Steve Jobs, but I was very sad to hear the news as I was finishing up this piece.

I want to portray superman as a tired hero. He has super power, but he is also a man. Being a man, like everyone else, he has moments of weakness. He could get tired, or disappointed. It doesn't make him less of a hero.

You captured the moment. It feels like he is feeling so tired and still had to keep the never encding battle.

This is really a wonderful work. Because Superman is sore of a 'demigod', we rarely get to see him in his most vulnerable moments. You did a really good job of portraying him as such! :)

Tried to comment but I think DA ate it. I saw this yesterday when I briefly met you at SDCC - amazing. I'm hoping to get back tomorrow (not there today) to purchase it. I wish I'd done so yesterday. The image is so beautiful and there's something haunting about it. Even Superman has his human moments - so good.

Cheers!

I met you briefly yesterday at SDCC - if I can I'm hoping to make it back tomorrow and if you have some of this left I'm going to buy it. I wish I'd bought it yesterday! It's seriously so beautiful - all of your work is awesome, too. I wish I had half of your talent!

Cheers!

Hello there. Thanks for your interest. I'm afraid I'm not accepting any commission work at the moment.
I'm very flattered you asked though. :)
