Redesign In "BLUE," 3

So, the new design is done. From its initial sketches, to its first design, to the current. Now, I have to animate the thing, or at least see how it translates. So I threw together a cape and hair move, with some stuff happening around him. Please do excuse the video garbage that pops up.

Redesign In "BLUE" Continued...

From his first design concepts, Bartz the Blue had a cape. He wasn't designed to be without it. Another reason a redesign was necessary, I wanted his outfit to work with or without his cape and I didn't feel this design did.

The new design with more detailed colors sans cape...

I wasn't getting rid of the cape, I just needed a stronger option of the character without it. The new design with more detailed colors with cape...

Redesign In "BLUE"

In the midst of everything else that's going on, I am in the middle of redesigning some of the characters in "Bue Dragon Blues." Not that I don't like their current designs, I just think some of them could be pushed a little more. Let's start with the main character Bartz the Blue.

First off, his design needed a little more to it. It had nice elements but that felt flat to me over time. I also felt there needed to be more consistency in his outfict overall. I added a knee pad and made a new belt buckle similar in design. Here are 2 of the more finished looks of this.

I was fine with the additions, but I also wanted the character to look younger and the design to be pushed a little more to a "cartoony" feel. This was more final.

This image was cleaned up and colors were added to bring you this...

Sketch Process: Robin Redesign cont.

i was just gonna do robin, but i like the crazy batman in the first sketch, so i went ahead and sketched a version of that up.

flipped that image, gave it more detail...

inked and colored 'em both in the computer for the final. i made some changes to each while i was inking and coloring...

Sketch Process 01: Robin Redesign

Here's a quick walkthru of my drawing process with Digital Webbing's "Girl Wonder" redesign going on in the "Draw Off" section.

here's my beginning scratches, working out design. i usually draw a basic form and throw all types of ideas on it, there's multiple "r" placements, different types of boots goin' on. i have to squint alot to block out some aspects, but i get a whole bunch of crap happening.

from that, i take what i want and leave the rest. went from four pouches to two, got rid of the boots, no knee pads, still messing around with the "r" placement.

then i'll play with that simplified design, still working out elements. love the "r" on the bottom of the foot, i can see that imprinted on someone's head after a kick to the face.

keeping what i want, i draw the more detailed sketch, but this will change some once i outline it...

Street Fighter Ken

Rise of the AMERI-MEN

With Captain America's death, I thought I'd do some stuff in the vein of Superman's death and the "Rise of the Supermen" with all the varied incarnations of Supes. Here's a few Cap renditions for the fun of it...


Luke Cage, throwing on the star and forehead "A"

Giant robot "Iron American"

Wonder Woman, Sort of

Did this a while back for a contest over at Lesean Thomas' website. The contest was to develop a new design for Wonder Woman. Being the giant robot fan I am, I did a version of her as a pilot of an invisible robot. Well, maybe more like a transluscent, bot...

Cuttin' Records

A DJ friend of mine, wanted some illustration work done and I had to come up with what I thought best suited her needs. She's a pretty BAD-ASS chick, so I thought I would capture that...

Star Wars Short Production

Here are some production pieces from the interactive Flash version of the Star Wars short.

YouTube Channel

I've posted a few of my creative endeavors on YouTube with a channel I call, Creative Leftovers.

I drew a redesigned version of the Wonder Twins for Comic World News a while back, but I had to see them transform into something, so I did a little Flash movie you can see below.

The same goes for a Mazinger Z. There was a Mazinger Z/Giant Robot Draw Off over at Digital webbing, and I couldn't draw the robot without showing him do his signature rocket punch.

Spring Cleaning

More sketches and scribbles from the past.
