Battle at the Daily Planet

By jermilex
Another image not done in my normal style, this one as an art test for a studio I was looking to get hired at. Sadly the work was not good enough for the job, but at least I tried. The requirements were to have Superman and Lex Luthor in epic battle in front of a destroyed Daily Planet.

Good! But I know - Jeremy Vickery can do better by drawing hand, with no mattepainting!

Ooh... I don't think it wasn't 'good enough'. You just went in a different direction than what they wanted or expected. 

I know this sounds 'wrong' but it's a shame Superman doesn't kill. 

Lex's suit came with rockets?

So many buildings. You put work into this one. Sorry it didn't work out.

Yes, Superman would make an amazing villain. Glad you liked this one

I wasn't going for villain. Good guys sometimes kill bad guys.

indeed... they do concept design for loads of games and film. Look at their design for Guardians of the Galaxy. It's amazing

It couldn't be a problem with your skill at generating a professional level image. If I see a problem, it's that the scene looks posed.

yes, my character work lacks pretty badly at this point. Oh well
