Title: Character Redesigns
Post by: scourge on October 10, 2014, 07:01:48 AM
Post any redesigns of characters that you really enjoy. They don't have to be one those that have actually happened in the books. If they're ones no one has ever seen before all the better.

To get things started, this redesign of the classic X-Men, while subtle, really works for me. Based on appearances only, I'd be more interested in seeing what these guys do with this look than if they were in their classic outfits.

I have always liked the look of the pure white Vision.

I don't know the character at all, and from what I understand he's one of Sickly Nickly's boys and the colour change came with a drastic character change, but my first introduction to the Vision was from Captain America and the Avengers on the Genesis and Arcade, and i always liked the white look way more

There are some designs that were only in the comics briefly, that I enjoyed quite a bit. These were usually versions of characters in alternate reality settings.



Age of Apocalypse: specifically Sunfire, but also Nightcrawler as he's just so natural with a sword--Though I didn't like the change in Nightcrawler's personality in the AoA version. Sunfire is just a dick like usual, but Nightcrawler lost all his charm.

(http://i1211.photobucket.com/albums/cc431/treysome3/AOAUXF.png)

Age of X: Along those lines, I like the look of Rogue here with her skull glove:

(http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/e0/06/5b/e0065b992223fdb1521e780e80dfb35d.jpg)

Gambit's ok, but he's basically Metal Gear Solid Gambit and Gambit's look has usually been pretty good regardless. While Rogue's look is cool there, I'm also a big fan of her modern green and white uniform and her classic 90's green and yellow with the leather jacket look. All the others, like Extreme X-Men and her early pre 90's day looks are shitty comparatively.


House of M: Iron Man's Gundam/Transformer look here was a fun change. Not one that I think would work consistently, but I liked the direction they went in and wouldn't mind seeing this being one of his special occasion armors.
(http://i.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel//universe3zx/images/thumb/0/03/Ironman_HoM.jpg/406px-Ironman_HoM.jpg)


Negative Zone Gladiator: This isn't an alternate reality version AFAIK but it fits with the theme. Johnny Storm as he was when he came back from the negative zone was a pretty nice redesign. It was the first time Torch came across with some kind of intimidation, which makes sense. The guy should be intimidating. He can set you on fire.

(http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/namey/32802/4221221/4221221_original.jpg)

Side note: Whitey Spidey however, I'm less big on, although I liked the white suits just fine for the FF in general. And it's not that I hated Spidey wearing the team colors, but it was no black suit Spider-man, and doesn't hold a candle to the original.

White Vision was a Byrne thing. He said someone with his name and powers should be ghost like.


Byrne was also the one that decided he had to undo decades of character development to get Vision "back to basics", even though "a completely robotic personality with no sense of humanity" was in no way the Vision's original personality, given the guy was crying in his first appearance. Byrne's kind of crazy like that.

I don't necessarily think that the white look was BAD, per say, with the right additional bits it could have been classic. The problem was they often tinged the shading on the Vision to be this ugly light yellow rather than gray, so he often had this piss yellow complexion. He was also basically going around in a shoulder cape and a speedo. Give his outfit a little more of a design to it and get rid of the yellow highlights and it could have been a solid look. I'd still prefer the classic outfit, but unless a re-design really grabs me, I tend to prefer the classics.

(http://imageshack.com/a/img746/29/cmEd5e.jpg)

This was a re-design of Wonder Man that I thought looked pretty cool, with some slight tweaking to it to get the colors of the stomach area and the pants/arms to match.

(http://imageshack.com/a/img38/585/captainmarvelcollarandc.jpg)

Likewise, this was all the alteration I felt the Captain Marvel look ever really needed. Some yellow trim around the jacket flap, a high collar, and a slightly longer cape. I'd probably get rid of the button/diamond designs on the cape as well to clean it up a little, but other than that I think this is a perfect look for Cap. Ironically he was the only one that missed out on all the high collars that DC was handing out with the reboot.

The AOA designs in general were pretty amazing.
I liked Colossus more Corsair'ish look as well, and, as mentioned, Sunfire was fantastic like hell.
No surprise they actually adopted it as his standard look for 616 Marvel.

I kind of like the concept of Angel as a sniper.
I mean, imagine him somewhere far out of sight, hovering just up there between the clouds, killing people out of nowhere.
Add to that a kind of stoic personality, and it would really work nicely.

I like nu 52 Batman, the briefs going away helped him, though I feel Superman's costume suffered losing the brief's look. - Mainly because Batman is almost always shrouded in his cape or shadows whereas Superman's looks like blue nightwear now.
Title: Re: Character Redesigns
Post by: Ares on October 18, 2014, 10:00:17 AM
For some reason, I have an easier time seeing Batman lose the trunks than I do Superman. I don't mind them on Batman, but with the right coloring he can lose them and it doesn't really affect his look. With Superman tho, the trunks are just a part of what make the suit classic. It helps there that it was based on the old spandex suits circus strongmen use to wear to show off their physiques, and the trunks were a necessary inclusion in order for said spandex to not show off anything indecent. It'd be very easy for a more classic Superman to justify that type of costume design when questioned about it.

"Well, when I decided I was going to be a superhero, I took my inspiration from heroes in the JSA, especially guys like Starman. He was my favorite hero growing up, and I wanted to emulate that kind of look."

^Exactly. Also, Batman's trunks were normally obscured anyway.

Its funny you chose Starman for an example.
He's the only hero who had the same boot style as Superman. True story!

Well, I went with Starman because he's more or less wearing Superman's outfit with some minor cosmetic differences. Take away the hood and its basically Superman's outfit in Red and Green with a star in place of the S-Symbol. Given he was also one of the relatively few flying heroes of the Golden Age, and his powers came from the stars, I could see Clark identifying with him and wanting to emulate that look, just sans the head-gear because he wants folks to trust him, and thus goes completely maskless.

Agreed with Billy's look, love it. One thing I always loved about cap marvel is that the button, cape held ob by a threaded rope and the yellow trim is that it looks somewhere in-between a ceremonial uniform(military,fireman, cop-whatever you would wear when you accept a medal of valor)

The uniform still looks functional even with its ceremonial aspect and. Best of all, it's very regal. The very imposing,regal look of it implies enormous power but tempered with morality and responsibility and it separates him from all the super clones who all seem to have uniforms that imply power first, posture second.

Superman and marvel are the two classic uniforms of that genre of most powerful guy/s around that also imply more than mere power.

Excet that Starman is basrd on Superman, and not the other way around.

No kidding, but in a Pre-Flashpoint universe where the JSA predate Superman and Clark is simply the first hero of the modern age, it's a minor touch to explain Superman's more classic appearance. Just "These were the heroes that came before me, I wanted to honor the tradition they set up", even if he came out before them in our actual history.

The of the few good things about the nu 52 is that it did away with that bullshit, even if the downside is that those idiots wiped out the Authentic Justice Society, making it a horrible tradeoff. Smh.

It's just something you can't have both ways. You can't really have Superman be the first hero in a world where the JSA fought in WWII without Superman having also been in WWII, which ages the character beyond the 30 something he's suppose to be in the modern era. And the JSA are as much tied to WWII as Captain America is, which is part of the reason why Earth 2 doesn't quite feel right. You can go the Pre-Crisis route, but I like the JSA being on the main DC Earth due to the legacy aspect.

For my money it makes sense to have the JSA fight in WWII to establish this sense of legacy and heroism, but have Superman be the first hero of the 21st century. It fits thematically with his whole "Man of Tomorrow" niche, while paying tribute to the notion that other costumed heroes had come before him, like the Shadow, Green Hornet and the Phantom.

If they changed the colour up, Id like the Nightwing one. Though it would be more of an elaborate type thing than a re design in that case.

also, x men one is pretty good.

Long pants on the Robin costume. Redesign of the millennium.

Agreed.

(http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/ignore_jpg_scale_medium/4/48605/2284961-profile_robin.jpg)

This was always my favorite Robin costume. Seemed like the perfect balance of a modern update, but with a lot of nods to what made the classic one work. I disliked it when they got rid of the green with later Robin looks, as it made the overall outfit too dark and brooding.

Title: Re: Character Redesigns
Post by: Ares on October 20, 2014, 01:06:23 AM
As for that Nightwing image on the first page, I like the general color scheme as it returns to what we saw with his first and second costumes, but I find the segmented armor to be a bit too busy. I'd take the overall design, simplify it to the more traditional spandex-style look, and throw in a few elements from the first outfit like the utility bracers that served as additional storage units for gear.

(http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img743/9732/R6sqTV.jpg)

Something kind of like the above, just with a few tweaks here and there, and, you know, done by an actual artist and not just my attempts at Photoshop.
Title: Re: Character Redesigns
Post by: Ares on October 20, 2014, 02:51:39 AM
One thing I liked about Dick taking over the Batman role was getting into how different their approaches to being Batman would be. Dick commented that, first and foremost, he was an acrobat, so he immediately lightened the armor of both the cape and the suit and altered the cape to have more of a gliding effect to aid rather than hinder his movements. I likewise don't think Dick would wear much more than the 'spandex kevlar' that use to be popular in Pre-Flashpoint DC, as it's the best compromise between movement and protection.
Title: Re: Character Redesigns
Post by: Ares on October 20, 2014, 03:27:04 AM
And speaking of Nightwing, I found an image of Starfire that I thought was a nice compromise between her classic outfit and the more conservative outfit she wore in the late 90's Titan series:

(http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/6/68345/1973251-1720900_starfire_alien_alliance.jpg)

Give it some of the gems her original outfit use to have and it'd be perfect.

As a side note, I hated it when the broke Dick and Kory up, and kept teasing them maybe getting back together, just because they wanted to also tease a relationship with Oracle. I hated the whole Barbara/Dick romance, because it came completely out of left field and felt mostly like Bat-Editorial was trying to distance Dick as much from the Titans as possible. Dick and Kory actually had character development to establish their relationship, it felt natural and they worked hard for it. The Barbara relationship felt like they just went "aw, fuck it".

And now for one of my favorite villains, Dormammu.

Like a lot of villains, Dorm suffered from meh to not so great costumes. I never really liked his original
looks. The puffy shirts and pants made him look like some dopey Power Ranger/Sentai villain.

From the 90's Spider-Man cartoon show. FUCKING STUPID.

(http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080603232442/marvelanimated/images/8/85/Dormammu.jpg)

From the Hulk & The Agents of S.M.A.S.H. & Ultimate Spider-Man show. Infinitely better than the 90's Spider-Man
incarnation, but still terrible.

(http://x.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel/i/mg/6/60/542b18f4e805c.jpg)

Also, NOT a fan of the demonic monster forms of Dormammu. The guy's not an actual "demon" in the sense
of Mephisto and the other Hell Lords. So when artists go this route, I'm thoroughly disappointed. He's a
magical bad guy, an evil sorceror, not a goddamn monster.

(http://schmoesknow.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/HSDS32.jpeg)

The Marvel Mangaverse's version. Better than the one from Avengers, but again, it still makes him look
like a demon.

(http://media.animevice.com/uploads/2/21764/377030-dormammu_mangaverse_large.jpg)

The one from the Doctor Strange animated film. Probably the best out of all the monster looks.

(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/cfXWcJIvSjI/maxresdefault.jpg)

My favorite design, I think it came from that ultra shitty (worst written version of his character EVER) Defenders mini.
What I like so much it's that its a simple enough design, yet it looks like something an evil spellcaster would wear. A
mix of robes and armor.

(http://www.game-art-hq.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Dormammu-MVC3-Official-game-Art.jpg)

His current one? I don't like it since it makes him look like an evil jack o' lantern to me, but it's better than
the fucking monster look at least.

I will say this for the Nu-52, if you take away the hooded cloak and to were to replace the stupid glowy chest hole lightning bolt with the classic Shazam bolt, that actually isn't a bad look for Black Adam. It's close enough to the classic appearance, but has just enough tweaks to look slightly more Egyptian and ancient, giving the impression that while there is an overall scheme to the Shazam powers (primary body suit, Shazam bolt, gold stylings on the wrist, belt and boots), the look of the suit varies from wielder to wielder. Billy's look resembles classic Golden Age Superheroes because those were the heroes that existed before him, hence things like the cape and such. You could even just say his dad was a fan of the old Film Serials of that age, and he use to watch them with Billy before he died, so they influenced his design choice.

You'd think so, but they managed it with Captain Marvel, and they almost did it with Adam with that cloak and the lightning hole in his chest. But take those latter two aspects away and you have a look that works for Adam, but is terrible on Billy.

Not really a fan of that look. Diana is the one who should have more of a Greeco/Roman armor look rather than Cap. That looks more like an outfit for Maxi Zeus. But I admit I'm biased and think it's really hard to improve over Cap's classic look (http://pre02.deviantart.net/7877/th/pre/i/2013/316/b/3/captain_marvel_colors_by_wheretheresawil-d6u2gyl.jpg), unless you added a colar (https://static.f-list.net/images/charimage/641781.jpg).

Feminist critics were praising it as a "butch" haircut pretty much immediately, and the helmet made it look like a fauxhawk. What's funny is that if the character WAS a butch lesbian, I wouldn't care NOR would I complain about the hair. But a STRAIGHT woman cutting her hair like that just seems silly.

You know what's weird when you think about it; Void was a full on psychopath, crazy killer sort.

The one on the right isn't bad, but it still feels like a step down from what Cap classically had. Black just shouldn't be a main color on Cap's outfit, since that's what Adam's for. I do like the Rocketeer-style jacket, but think it'd look better if the belt wrapped around outside of it rather than the flap sticking out over it. It's just kind of busy where Cap's classic look is beautiful in its simplicity.

I also kind of like my own headcanon explanation for the retro-look of classic Billy. His dad was a fan of old Film Serials like Flash Gordon or Captain Video (a nod to Cap's own film serial, making him the first movie superhero) and classic Golden Age heroes, so he watched them with a young Billy. After his dad died and when Billy was given his powers, his ideal of a hero was based off those old serials and his dad, and combined with the 'Shazam Template' (single color bodysuit, gold highlights on the wrists, feet and waist, lightning bolt on the chest) to give him his classic look.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only way you'll improve on this:
(http://pre02.deviantart.net/7877/th/pre/i/2013/316/b/3/captain_marvel_colors_by_wheretheresawil-d6u2gyl.jpg)

is with very minor tweaks like a collar and a slightly longer cape.

Not totally sure if it works in-comic or whatever, the placement is interesting almost kind of a "third eye" vibe if you know what I mean.

But it is at least some imagination in doing a new visor so there's that going for it.

Radically different design of Daredevil I drew up if Matt Murdock ever went true psychopath and really wanted to bring out the fear from his enemies.

Thought this was awesome...a bit different from the basic concept of this thread, but share worthy all the same, Ghost Rider as a dragon:

Yeah, the artist did a few more that I saw. The Hulk one was pretty cool, Batman & Storm, not so much, but GR was my fav. The flaming skull head and super long fire tail representing his chain both work so well for a dragon and I've never seen anything like it. Of the ones you posted just now, prob like Venom best, but it's just different markings more or less. Good design, but not as imaginative as the GR one. The Iron Man one is pretty imaginative but I don't really like the look.

Also, Sinestro having less of a Melon head stronger bone-ridges in his face for nu52.

Yeah, he looks better as essentially the evil Hal rather than someone utterly alien looking.

The new DS's costume after his spiritual crisis is strange.
To see him using a cape is weird.

This Invincible redesign won a contest at Project Rooftop:

I like it better than the blue/dark blue one he switched to.

I'm like that with his current costume.
He's always reminded me of Spidey in a way, and it seems like when Peter wore the black outfit, but not as cool.

Nova's always had a solid costume that's mostly gotten a few tweaks over the years, with the exception of
his Nova Prime outfit. Only one I've omitted (mostly because I couldn't find a damn good size image) was
his ultra shitty brown costume from his first appearance in New Warriors.

For some reason I keep seeing updates to this thread, yet the last post for me is always this one. Very odd glitch I'm thinking. Maybe posting will resolve that as I want to see what kinds of redesigns you guys are finding

This has happened to me on a few of the old team Builder thread, and the 'is SHIELD being overdone' thread.
Pretty sure i did multiple posts thinking the page wasnt loading before i figured it out.

...but i like the Flash Gordon.
Its Bck Rogers as a Wolverine level short guy that really caught my eye.
Never seen him depicted that way!

I like that line-up too. Costumes aside, they're all easy to distinguish from each other instead of having a generic hero physique/height/look.

^^^especially between Flash and Buck. These two could look really similar if done lazily.

Some of those, most really, are nice.
The glowy shit is overdone on NW and Manta, IMO.
Kid Flash really stands out, i'd like to see more of that.
