Golden Age Superman

I recently drew a variant cover for DC Comics, for Superman Unchained #6.  It was done as part of their Superman 75th anniversary series of variant covers.  They graciously let me have carte blanche to draw whatever I wanted, so I picked a suitably "golden age" scenario for Superman (I always liked him fighting giant robots).

This one was drawn in coloured inks with some colour tweaking and processing in photoshop. 

 Below, you can see some of the various drawings that lead to the final image, including various thumbnail homages I did of classic golden age Action Comics covers while trying to come up with ideas for this assignment.
