jacobanderson - i like this alot, and i would actually go for an 'in between' of the two you drew. something pushing out, but not too close to his head either. and i liked the hand opened up, the closed fist is done to death on flying poses. i dont think i would clench my fists unless i was flying as fast as i could, and thats not what this pose looks like. but i really like it so far man! nice lighting too!

This is where I am so far. Unless I'm doing a color study, I probably shouldn't go too much further without adequate reference. I think I went halfway between the two arm poses with this. AND I think I should add hair to this guy as well. Even though I'm balding in this time/space continuum, who's to say that I didn't in the one I'm illustrating now?
Besides, If I added hair I can get that cool subsurface scattering of light, which always looks dramatic.
I was aiming for superhero as well, but in between realistic superheroes and way-the-f@*k-overpowered superheroes. I think if the first season of Heroes were on as a kid I would have felt like I was Peter Petrelli...hence the graceful, slowish flight illustration.
@Lt-Action- As much as I kept on trying to see elbows inside the samurai garb, I'm still picturing some massively meaty moobs under there...
Great dynamism in the composition though. With the wind-affected cloth, you've made a static pose into a dynamic one.
@tehmeh- Hah. Hilarious. I had a letter I wrote to myself in ninth grade that we weren't allowed to open till graduation from 12th grade. It said something along the lines of hopefully completing a 5 minute long stick-figure-slash-death-beat-em-up Flash animation (like those over at fluid-anims) Did I? Nope. XD. But it was my senior project in high-school, so I guess that counts.
Oh wow, I got WAY off topic.
Here's my image.

@jacobanderson: I prefer the version in post #53 MUCH more than #55.
It was much more dramatic with the cool foreshortening, I think you have lost that with your update. Also, the face looked nicer, had more mood to it, than the new one cast in shadow.
I personally would like to see the old version again!
Just my two pennies.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.

Some really cool ideas going around! man there was so many choices from he-man to a power ranger but i started to paint me as a boxer as I have always loved watching boxing and always wanted to have a go, say the least I actually hate my painting and probably will chuck it soon.
