Some DC girls redesigns! An extension to the street wear Super heroines thing I did awhile ago. Unfortunately missed the Project Rooftop redesign contest, but these have been floating around in my head for awhile. I also get a lot of questions concerning the brushes I use for these character portraits. I use 2 brushed in my set to do them, and here they are!
I love the worlds of comics and video games, and I’ll probably be doing more like these :)
The Harley redesign is largely influenced by Kris Anka’s work!
As I’ve already told you, these are such lovely designs! Adore all of them
Superman Unchained #6 Variant Cover by Sean Murphy
I want a poster of this. (that 90s Superboy!)
I love this version of Superboy…
Some first sketches I made for Batgirl. I really kind of liked the first ears tbh? But they seemed too cat-like at times, but w/e.
And Batgirl attending a fancy Bruce Wayne party in a Hundurian White Bat-inspired dress.
Cheetah 1 and 2’s Who’s Who entry.
Late last year Jeff Lemire said that he had created a new hero for his new Justice League book - a teenage Cree girl from James Bay based in part on a real-life person, the late activist Shannen Koostachin.
When the cover for Justice League United #0, by Mike McKone, was revealed, however, the character was nowhere to be seen. And several folks were disappointed to see a cast that was, well, very not diverse.
The variant cover for JLU #1 by
Gene HaMcKone didn’t look any more diverse, either.
But that second cover is actually going to look different and diverse when it hits the stands.
incredibly. this is why I’ve never felt that i should ever be hired to redesign DC characters. I feel it’s incredibly important that you have a love, or at least a very strong understanding, for the character you are designing. you need to “know” them so you always have the essence of the character in mind while you work. because personality and character traits will define 80% of your decisions. the last 20% is then just personal taste.
it’s been hard keeping this a secret for the past year, but SUPER excited our title that only went for a year gets out own toyline! I’ve held these tiny things in my hands and telling you the pictures do the sculpt and quality no justice, they are awesome as hell.
