    For a few weeks, we're going to try something a little different in the REMAKE/REMODEL space.

    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    No more than TWO submissions by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.

    So here's the deal:

    You are an artist/designer. You have to put together the cover for a comic called SUPERMAN. It is issue 1 of this book.

    You have been told that Superman is a man who dresses predominantly in a shade of blue, and wears a red S symbol. You know nothing else about the character.

    The cover must include a logo and the text THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE DARING EXPLOITS OF THE ONE AND ONLY SUPERMAN.

    And that's it.

    It's up to you what kind of company you're at. What kind of comics you make. How you translate that description of Superman. What era you're in. Who you are, even. Go nuts with it.

    You have one week. Go.

    I wonder how many people just urinated on themselves.

    @kperkins-Bwa-hahaha!
    So true... but I think I am with @Alberto: this one gives me the FEAR.
    My design skills are not... awesome. But I'll have a go...

    looks like I returned at the right time. LLTB.

    I haven't done one of these in a while. By the way, for all their simplicity, it's more difficult to imitate a Harvey comic than I imagined...

    super man
