About a week or two ago my friend Jeremy sent me a message on Facebook asking if I'd do another drawing for him.  He asked me to do one for him a few years ago of his head on Brad Pitt's body from Fight Club (Tyler Durden) with Jessica Alba.  Here's what the finished product looks like magentafreak.deviantart.com/ar… .  He loved it!  He happens to be a big Superman fan, so this time he asked if I'd do a drawing of his head on the body of Superman from the upcoming movie "Man Of Steel."

I had no idea there was a new Superman movie coming out.  Then again, I don't really care for superhero movies unless it's Batman, and even then I'll wait until it comes out on DVD to see it (truth be told, I didn't give a shit about Batman, even though I've seen "Batman," "Batman Returns" and "Batman Forever" a ton of times, until I finally caved and saw "The Dark Knight.").  He sent me a link to the trailer for the new movie and it looked okay, but I can see why others would like it.  That and the new Superman costume looked awesome!

What's weird is that a few days before he sent me that message, I realized I literally have not done a single drawing in over a year.  I can only draw when I'm in a certain mood, and as I get older, I find the mood comes less and less.  I told him I would look into it, but as usual, I can make no guarantees.

True to my word, I did a Google search of Superman images from the new movie.  I also raided Jeremy's profile to find good face shots of him.  Turns out there was a picture of him where his head was in a perfect angle for transplantation to another image.  Combined with an epic pose of Superman, it made a truly awesome picture.  Now, I had procrastinated for about a week or so before actually doing this, mostly because I'm currently in the middle of a cross stitch project that is turning into a major undertaking.  I set it aside for a few hours, not only to finally start work on my drawing, but to let my fingertips heal a bit.

It's truly amazing how you can start a project and be indifferent about it, then once you really get started, your whole attitude changes and you remember why you fell in love with drawing in the first place.  I did complete the drawing, and it can be seen here magentafreak.deviantart.com/ar… .  Once again, he was very pleased.  I'm hoping to finish my cross stitch project sometime within the next few weeks, then who knows?  Perhaps I'll be back into doing portraits for a while.

I love art, especially cross stitching. I used to do a lot of drawing and writing, but my main focus for the better part of the past 3 years has been cross stitch. Also, I have two joint accounts. One is with ~carchesium carchesium/deviantart.com called ~OpticalAssault OpticalAssault.deviantart.com that features psychedelic art. The other is with ~Corvus-Rose corvus-rose.deviantart.com called ~CandyAppleApproved candyappleapproved.deviantart.… that features humorous comic strips. There isn't much rhyme or reason to what I do.

Location: Wisconsin, USA
Favourite genre of music: Not really sure, but I lean more towards rock/pop
Favourite style of art: cross stitching
Operating System: Windows 10
MP3 player of choice: iPod Shuffle
Wallpaper of choice: Whatever cool pictures I find on Google

Personal Quote: "No one ever accused me a bein' nice."
