Daily Deviation

Given 2012-05-26
SUPERMAN by *DistortedVizion is as epic as the suggester says! "A small big man. It shows a childhood dream. The expressiveness and the love in this shot are great and incredibly full of emotions!"
( Suggested by LadyxWinter and Featured by Kaz-D )
That's adorable! The kid looks really like a miniature version of super man. i love the classic pose of superman ripping off the dress shirt to reveal a heroic costume. As well as the outfit itself. everything down to the glasses is really cute. The background is good too since it looks like a street in a city where superman would live. the way the kid's ripping off his shirt is perfect. the ripped tie is a great addition to the pose. His expression is really cute. this is the face of a miniature superman out to get the other miniature bad guys~!

Simply an awesome piece!
Very rarely do we see artistic parodies on such iconic poses and ideas, as a superman fan at heart I can't help but adore this photograph. An amazing piece of artwork that exhibits amazing vision and originality.

The parody and the visual link that is established between this piece and the comic book superhero that every child knows and loves is the backbone of the image, and the source of it's conceptual strength.

My only criticism however, is the colour correction and balance. The colours seem a little too dull, and the sepia tone maybe not the best choice for this piece. A small technical criticism, however, on what is otherwise a great photograph.

Beautiful piece and power to you and this boy for not considering yourselves 'troubled' for having autism, because it isn't a curse it's just a different understanding.

So cute, especially with his front teeth missing. Very well done. Congratulation on the DD, it was very well-deserved.
The message behind the photo is very touching, too. My mother has been a special education teacher for 20+ years, so I have had the honor of helping and befriending many children with autism, as well as kids with other learning difficulties, and they are some of the sweetest people I've met.
