    Default REDESIGN The DC Universe!! WHoooohooo!

    Hey guys, a few of us were posting redesigns in the Superman section and a few non-superman designs started slipping in. So here's a new place to post redesigns for all the DC characters. I'll start.

    Superman:

    A1, A2, A3, A4



    B1, B2, B3, B4



    C1, C2, C3, C4
    [/QUOTE]


    I think i've settled on B4 and C1 as my favorites.

    The idea for the above came from desire to remove the trunks but keep the primary design the same. So the issue came up, how do we break up the light blue color. After looking at the fantastic four costumes from the films i was impressed with how they made use of a variety of shades of blue and yet the designs don't feel overwhelmed by the color. I also looked at wet suits and was impressed with how they use multiple colors in non-traditional ways and found inspiration in that method.

    So you have the top primarily a light blue color, very traditional supes, but along the obliquies and down into the legs you have darker shade of blue. Also a portion of the light blue dives below the belt as i felt it better integrated the top and bottom pieces together.

    In keeping the belt the only justification i could think of is that the suit is actually two pieces, pants for the bottom and a shirt for the top rather than one piece like the FF4.

    Overall i tried to keep it as close to the original as possible while changing up the lower half (primarily) to remove the shorts. the variations add pipings or various colors and dark arms. I'm not sure which would work best but i feel that a version of this costume could work well for a redesign. Whenever i settle on the design i'd like to try a detailed fully illustrated version. Anyway i wanted to explain my design a little bit. Thanks.

    Credit to Alex Ross, but this design is just so awesome. Maybe a few tweaks in the insignia to make it look more like his current (Well, kinda current) costume, and it's golden.

    Know who REALLY needs a costume overhaul? Ultra Boy.
    Power - Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. But it rocks absolutely, too.

    Nooo! Everyone is invited to Ultra Boy's gun show.

    I have to say, I do prefer it when costumes look like clothes rather than paint.

    Nah. I saw it with a hood, and it made him look WAY too much like Moon Knight.

    I'd probably scrap the hood then. And alter the insignia a bit.

    I like that look way more practical the the skirt or a bikini both of which DC is trying to eliminate.
