how do you prefer him to be drawn? very muscular, lean but ripped, linebacker-ish?

#3 Posted by KingRobbStark (165 posts) - - Show Bio

I would say lean. He's always on the move, and does not need to work.

He should be what Henry Cavill became for MOS.

His head proportions look ridiculous for that last pic.

Muscular but not too muscular

Big and lean.

Superman is a big, powerfully built man but he's not a competition bodybuilder and shouldn't be drawn as one.

I like him to be 6'3 tall and 240 lbs.

I liked the first 2 pics in the OP, wherever they'd be ranked on the scale. Not a huge fan of #3. The large-framed (& muscular) man conjures that heroic image/feeling for me, so I like the "lead" characters to look that way. I was impressed at how Cavill looked in MoS, he looked like a comic character.

The way Jim Lee and Tony S. Daniel tend to draw him is pretty much spot on in my opinion. Henry Cavill had a fantastic physique as well.

Cavill had a Superman physique.

I like the way new 52 Superman is also.

Nah, what Deranged Midget said is exactly how I feel.

Agreed.

I think it depends more on the artists proportions and uniqueness. Rocaforts Superman feels authentic being lean, but Ed McGuinness' also seems authentic and he's the size of a tank. Uniqueness and creativity are the key.
