    Yeah its awesome and I think we all may owe him

    BIG ditto!

    I have a friend who actually purchased a suit that is a direct replica of the one from the movie. If you need pics of the original shape, I may be able to get pics if you need them for reference.

    Batman and sons

    Three out of four of them, at any rate. Looks really good.

    Yeah. Jason Todd just doesn't do it for me. I have trouble caring about characters when I don't know who they are. And, I mean, I know his story, but he just seems so radically inconsistent between appearances that I don't know who he is.


    Wish I'd seen this sooner. To each his own, I suppose. I'm really not a fan of Damian myself. I think his character is unnecessary. In fact, he reminds me a lot of Jason when Jason was Robin. Brash, often acting without thinking. Which is why when discussing him with friends, I felt that Damian could benefit from dying. Jason seems to have grown in popularity since resurfacing as Red Hood. Though, he took a bit of a detour during the Battle for the Cowl arc. At any rate, keep up the fantastic work on your creations, sir.

    The updated version of Jason is one of my favorite character from the DC Universe Second only to Batman Him Self.I never liked the Original Jason Todd being that even in the origins he was just a clone of Dick. The revamped version Jason was a Street Orphan who Bruce catches jacking his car. He is dark and damaged and has major control issues. His own mother betrays him plus He dies at the hands of Joker and is resurrected.

    Characters do not get much darker than him. And that is why I like him so much

    I wouldn't say he was a clone of Dick. While there were similarities (the parents not being in the picture for one reason or another) they were pretty much polar opposites. Where Dick was a obedient yet cocky, things with Jason tended to go in one ear and out the other. If Jason were anything like Dick, he probably wouldn't have died and been replaced with Tim. So things seem to have worked out.....except now we have Damian (ugh.)

    How about Terry Mcginnis from Batman Beyond

  • lface8lface8 Posts: 89
    edited December 1969

    Batman Beyond had it's moments. Terry wasn't a terrible character, but wasn't anything great either. He can kind of be compared to Spider-Man in that he was a high school student fighting crime and struggling to maintain some semblance of a "normal" life which is kind of cool, I suppose.

    That's exactly what I say and is also exactly why I like Terry. He is Dc's version of Spiderman.

    Just a superhero-themed render from 6 years ago. I made the models in Wings3D and textured and rendered in Bryce5. I was faking HDRI with reflections and a tiny bump map plus surrounding the scene with a sphere with an image map on it. A little postwork in PSE to get a "glow" effect. I think the light from the Lantern was a conical volume light.

    Like the Superman family pic. Don't know who the gal (red head) is on the far left though. Jimmy's hair looks more black than dark strawberry blonde. Actually his hair, now I'm going by the Jimmy Olson I know from the comic books, should have the red headed gals hair color! :-) Lois' face, I guess, looks more like the Margot Kidder "Lois" than other Lois's I've seen.

    Been meaning to post something here for awhile since the previous forums tanked. Anyway, let me start with Classic Superman B-)

    The Red Head is supposed to be Lana Lang.

    Well I think I've got most of them. Let's see, I don't know much about Connor Kent in the black T-shirt, except from the Smallville TV series, but I gather from the Wiki on him that he has several different origin stories. I'm guessing that's Power Girl and the Earth Two Superman with the graying temples at top left?

    Great job!

    My guesses for the elderly gentleman are Perry White... if not that (which I would bet on) then I would say Pa Kent

    Elderly? You mean Superman from Earth 2?

    I don't think it is Superman from Earth-2. I think it is Perry White in the Superman Family pick on the back left.

    Gotcha. You may want to put that gold band that he had around his head in the Silver Age/Pre-Byrne days.... or you could go full on Byrne and just have him covered in Black except for his face.

    You're thinking of Jor-L/Jor-El. Kal-L was Superman's name in the 30's and the name of the Earth 2 Version. I have a Jor-El all set. Did a lot of chars from the Superman stories just haven't rendered them all yet.

    Right, the REAL Supes had a different but distinct look. I LOVED the way Keith Giffen drew him in the All Star Comics in the 70's, along with Wally Wood!

    I was playing with WorldBase XT and ended up with someone who looks like she wants to be a superhero...

    Hey Joe, thanks for putting the Alien Force morphs together. A commission payment came through and I finally picked up the base set; I'm working on some packages of paper RPG miniatures, and these will come in handy when I get to the Space sets...
