Kirby Superman Final

So i kinda changed things around a bit more

i wasnt quite happy with the first couple versions [while yeah, i still like 'em they just didnt quite feel "done". ever happen to you?]

so yeah. Kinda redid some things. I originally had the clouds as just a kind of gradient [didnt want to distract from superman too much] but it did end up looking kind of plain. so i went in and gave them a little form. tried giving the rest of the planet some kind of a water texture but it didnt end up working well here.

so yeah. i dropped the yellow light in the top right. ended up looking too green and eh. just didnt feel like it fit. so i dropped it. added some bright rim light to the right side. to really make him pop a little more. adjusted some of the contrast so the rendering gives him a little more form.

tweaked the space bkg a little bit. that one bright star by his head was distracting me too much so i ended up losing it

blah blah

i like this one better :P

hope y'all do too

Very nice! I like the lasers, and the starfield is really good! Did you have a particular method for that?
And, I might be missing something obvious - why is it called "Kirby Superman"? Is it based on one that Jack Kirby did?

Really cool picture! Very intense! The heat vision works well but I think it could also work without it.
