This is another piece that's been sitting on my hard drive, waiting to be completed. It's the second of three 'Hawkworld' pieces that I started it a year ago when he was announced to appear on Smallville.

I had built my first version with Michael 3 and was never quite satisfied. This past month, I completely rebuild him with Michael 4. The bracers and boots are from Valiant, the belt is Ad Gladio, the axe is from As Shanim ("Alphaseed" now), and the helmet. mace, and chest emblem are custom by yours truely.

I created the backdrop in Vue8 xStream with native elements to the program, but wasn't happy with how the clouds were turning out. I ended up improving the clouds with sky photos from my own backyard (heavily color-adjusted, of course) :)

Awesome Work Doug,

Any plans to share some of your custom models. They'd be a big help to some of us less technically talented people out here.

I haven't released any models because they're primitive at best. I'm good at covering the flaws with Photoshop.

Yeah, I mainly just use the models as reference to work out foreshortening for my drawings. I'd love to get my hands on a good hawkman mask. But I understand your reluctance.
thanks

Hawkman has been my favorite superhero since I was a young, young kid.. I've been thinking about rendering something similar for awhile. :salute: My winged helmet off to you.

I'd love to see what you come up with. If you get your Hawkman together, let me know.

Thanks Eve. I've done enough females in pin-ups that I thought it was time to feature some males. More to come...
