Your Own Superhero Art Challenge

April 10, 2019 by Displate Artists Team in Art Challenges

Forget every comic book you’ve ever read, erase from the memory all of the superhero movies you watched and go from zero to YOUR-OWN-HERO.

Now think of the life-threatening situation — the moment with no hope to buy booze at night, long dinner with your in-laws or Sunday at work. Who’s coming to save you?

With great power comes great responsibility, so whether your own superhero is a guy with the skill to binge-eat and not gain weight or he’s a man-sized sushi roll riding a Unicorn – make him into illustration and save us from boredom. 

The only limit is your imagination, so go with the flow and design a brand new Superhero of your dreams.
