An artist's truest fulfillment comes when the God-given gift of this talent is shared with others, and appreciated by all.

• THOUGHTS OF SUPERMAN, AND HOW HE MUST ALSO BE IMPERVIOUS TO TRENDS (FASHION AND OTHERWISE) -
- Superman is the FIRST superhero, officially. His costume design was based on several things, most notably the carnival strong man, hence the tights, and trunks. Clearly, it was a different era, an era
possessed of a greater measure of innocence than today. I think the fact that Superman's outfit looks dated is a GOOD thing, as it serves to always identify him as the beginning. Among an entire generation of "clones" HE is the Template Model. And his appearance automatically declares his primary status and importance.

In Mark Waid and Alex Ross' KINGDOM COME epic story, there's a great scene where Superman comes out of retirement to restore order in a chaotic world of destructive and egomaniacal super-beings. He strides authoritatively into a bar full of these godlike creatures, and they all immediately accord him the deepest respect, making way for him, and falling into awestruck silence. Now, sure, Ross did tweak Superman's old costume a bit here. But it remained essentially the same, old-fashioned, with the red trunks, and the cape tucked in at the shoulders. Superman looked dated and out of place, but that's as it SHOULD be. It's a frikkin' badge of honor. Haha!
Any effort to modernize this Template Superhero only reveals an agenda to serve crass commercialism rather than respecting the "landmark" status of a pop cultural icon. Other characters may be more malleable, changing with the times. But some are not.
Superman is the prime one of these, in my opinion.
Cheers!

do you have any personnal art, done in a personnal style. I like to look at your gallery, but it is all commercial work, impersonnal. I mean i can look at your gallery and i cant figure out anything about you as an artist, all i can see is a worker. And i definitly would like to see some personal art.

It all depends on what you look for, and how well you see.  An artist is present in all of his/her work to varying degrees.  And it's up to the artist to reveal as much or as little of himself as desired.

What is your opinion regarding the fact that we may never get to witness the appearance of Namor "the Sub-Mariner" McKenzie, Janet van Dyne/The Wasp, Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Hercules, or any of the X-Men (outside of Wolverine, along with a cameo of Hank McCoy) appear in either Ultimate Spider-Man, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and/or Avengers Assemble?

I love following your work, and I love your recent stuff. But I really love going through your gallery and looking at the work you did for QtC. It was and still is one of my favorite movies, and it's hard to find good art of it anywhere else!

Greetings Mr. Moore! I have a question, and I hope you will reply in time. Do you know of any professional Latin American digital artists? It is for a school assignment, and I was assigned to look up any digital artists in Latin America. She wasn't specific, but I'm seeking professional artists. I hope you can help, if not, 'tis okay. Thanks!

Except for one disappointing fact:  in every episode, it turns out the ghost/monster they're dealing with turns out to be a fake!

Remember me? We had a rather in-depth discussion on Superman's costume back when Man of Steel was in theaters.

Well, I'm back and this time I felt I needed the advice of a professional since I've been working on designs for a version of Atlantis.
