I'm giving a presentation on the development of this project tomorrow and it occurred to me that I haven't posted any updates in a while so over the course of today I'll be posting some development stuff which I'll use in the presentation.
Starting with some reasoning to why I chose Jacopo Tintoretto's Saint George and the Dragon.
The strong sense of movement in the piece really appeals to me, everything about the story seems to have been captured in a single image. The princess running towards the view with Saint George and the Dragon fighting in the mid-ground.
I had a flick through some comics knowing I'd find something to get this point across and it wasn't long before I found what I was looking for:
This images shares a very similar composition to Titoretto's painting. Superman is fighting Cil Gand (I think) in the middle-ground while a defenseless dockworker flees towards the viewer.
