I finally decided to buckle down and update my 3D Superman to Genesis, if for no other reason than to keep classic Superman alive in the face of recent changes to t he character and his mythos. As I predicted, there were several challenges, mostly due to there being no DSON files for the G-Suit (seriously, what’s up with that, Daz?). I ended up cobbling together a passable suit with the Journeyer Scout pants, the Preppy shirt, and the Town & Country belt. The belt and cape (from Ice-Boy) also took quite a bit of custom morphing. This is only the second render, and from a geometry standpoint, everything seems to work relatively well, though I’m not sure I like the textures just yet. They might seem a little…blah. What do you think?
The suit design basically undoes everything I think is wrong with Routh’s and Cavil’s. I thought Routh’s codpiece and belt rode too low on his hips, and of course Cavil has none at all. Most importantly, the only true S-emblem is displayed across my model’s chest. Seriously, why do they feel the need to keep distorting an already iconic symbol? I thought Routh’s was bad enough, but one look at Cavil’s, and I was ready to run screaming back to Routh, LOL! Ranting aside, I do plan to see “Man of Steel,” just to give it a fair chance.
