There were no superheroes during the renaissance period. Why? Apparently there were no supervillains so they were not needed. That would explain the lack of superheroes in fine art. It's time to fix that. Well that is according to Worth1000.com where they are running this Photoshop contest on superheroes. It's a pretty cool idea and some of the results are very good.
The rules of the contest are thus:
Take any piece of fine art and incorporate a superhero (or supervillain), as in the awesome themepost. As always, quality is a must. We'll remove poor entries no matter how much we like you. You'll have 48 hours for this contest, so make your submissions count.
If you like the idea, take a look at the contest website for all entries, it's worth it. I think I like this one most of all, maybe not the most complicated, but I like the simplicity of the image.
