Superman by GeirrodVanDyke Superman by GeirrodVanDyke
I have changed the name to avoid confusion.
My intention was to create a semi-ambiguous image that referred to his name’s jumbled etymology. During the process I started to wonder what role the character has played in addressing or further obscuring Nietzsche’s original meaning.

Acrylic and Digital.

Edit:
I want to thank everyone for their kind words... and a big thanks to $Thunderstatement for the DD.


…about Till Lindemann…I think he might be a distant cousin. :)

Absolutely crazy! The detail on this is freakin' incredible! You've really captured his power so well here. Love the inclusion of the sparks and dust in the bottom corner as well.

Overall- this really is an amazing piece!! :)
