3Boot Lightning Lad Photomanipulation
This photomanipulation of Lightning Lad is the third one I created based on the 3boot version of the Legion of Superheroes. The main issue I have with this image is the same as most of my male superhero photomanipulations. The quality of the original photo was not very good. Its always more difficult to find decent sources for the male characters.
The actual photomanip itself I am fairly pleased with. I feel I captured Barry Kitsons Lightning Lad design very well. The lightning arcs on his costume came out great, the white areas of Lightning Lads costume look really good (getting white to look right is almost always a challenge). I even modeled a version of the 3Boot Legion clubhouse in Lightwave and rendered it for the background. The worst part of this image is when reduced to thumbnail size, the model bears an unfortunate resemblance to the guy from “That 70’s Show”
