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”

3Boot Princess Projectra Photo Manipulation

Photomanipulation of Princess Projectra as she appeared in the third major reboot of the Legion of Superheroes comic, known amongst most fans as 3Boot.
I really liked how this manip came out, I did not think so much purple would turn out OK. There are of course some problems, the waistline of her pants is a bit weird and I should have added more definition on the edges of her clothing and shading where her skin meets her costume. I’m pretty sure this was the first superhero photo manipulation I created based on the 3boot series.

Mortal Kombat Moloch Fanart

Moloch from Mortal Kombat

Moloch from Mortal Kombat.

According to Ed Boon from NetherRealm Studios, he will not be appearing in Mortal Kombat X.
I wanted to make Moloch a little less bestial than he was in his previous appearances. I made him stand a little straighter and added some partial armour to (hopefully) make him look a little more intelligent and yet menacing. Colour version coming soon.

Element Lass gender bender photomanipulation

Element Lad?

Gender Bender Element Lass

For Surliman the Sorcerer’s Gender Bender Project

A long time ago, on an internet far far away, a small group of photo shoppers started turning people into Superheroes. So they banded their efforts at the behest of one of their number and began creating female versions of male characters. And thus from my mind and hand, Element Lass was born.

Silliness aside, one of my fellow superhero photo manipulators – Surliman the Sorcerer (now known as Black Alchemy on Heromorph) – asked some of us to take on redesigning some male characters as women. This is one of my efforts for this project, Element Lass. She is derived from Element Lad of the Legion of Superheroes. I did not redesign the costume this time, just went with a pure transfer.
