Another warm-up sketch that got a little out of hand.
The body is a combination of Jor-El and Zod's battle armour and the neck plate is based on the Kelor robot from the opening of Man of Steel. I did a pretty crappy job of getting it down in the line-art (cut me some slack, it's just a warm-up sketch
), but the head is supposed to be the "pin-art" style of holograms we saw them use in the film (I also threw in a bit of a Bizarro reference with the cracks on the face).
And, yes, that is supposed to be Jor-El's face. I thought it might be an interesting (and kind of creepy) take if Brainiac turned out to be the computer from the genesis ship that crashed outside Metropolis, and it started using his face and voice when talking to Clark (and that way we get Russell Crowe back, YAY!!!)
Yeah, sorry, I kind of went into full on fanfic mode for this one...
