That's right. This time around, try redesigning everyone's favorite punchline, The King of Atlantis and the Seven Seas (that's like 2/3 of the world, for those keeping score, and BTW he doesn't talk to fish, he friggin' COMMANDS them, okay?) AQUAMAN
 
Deadline is Sunday, NOV. 7.

 See what I did there?

@Om1kron: lol, pure visual genius :) 
About the only character who can pull it off, other than Namor of course.

haha lets not be brash it was meant as a prank, I'll actually get cracking on my actual drawing once I know what I want to throw down.

@Om1kron: I don't know, man. It will be tough to top such an original design, haha!!

I wanted to make Aquaman look like a king, so I tried to make him look more like Poseidon or Neptune

@payno: That is epic...It puts me in the mind of Thor's recent redesign...I likey !

I wanted to give him a SoCal surfer feel with longer hair and wetsuit. I would have colored the suit a little differently but I didn't have any grey Prismacolors on hand (need to go pick some up). This was a nice test for me so I could use my new markers.

Nice colors man very clean drawing. 

#17 Edited by Om1kron (1219 posts) - - Show Bio

ball point pen, pigment pens, and pitt pens, white gel ink for highlights, and random highlighters at work for color.

I second that.   Wow, really great drawings here, upping the ante for Aquaman.  Sink or swim!  *pun intended*

Am I allowed to put up a different image? I made a few alterations...

@Gambit1024: Go for it.
#22 Posted by tonis (6561 posts) - - Show Bio

Lot of inspiration coming out of this one. Some fantastic water effects and creative posing going on with all you guys. 
Aquaman may get a lot of crap compared to other heroes but he'd be proud to see the turnout here.

#23 Posted by Manarg (98 posts) - - Show Bio

All the inspiration anyone really needs.

Ok, here's my finished product. I'm new to painting on the computer, but I think I did well considering what I have to work with :) 
 


Basically the same as I did before, but reverse the colors. I brought back the hook hand and made him look more like the king he's supposed to be.

@Gambit1024: awesome job Gambit, your Ultron was my favorite piece from you so far but this just literally blows things out of the water (or into it). There's some very creative coloring techniques your picking up. 
Excellent progression I'm seeing out of your work with each new contest.
#27 Posted by Gambit1024 (10217 posts) - - Show Bio
@tonis: Thank you so much! I'm gonna try to do more and more stuff on the computer. Hopefully one day I'll actually win a contest :)

nothing is final until the deadline, knock yourself out.

Heres mine.. finally got to scanning the thing, been lying in my bag since the 26th.. lol 
Alright I haven't coloured it, cuz i cant use photoshop for colouring, i only know ver basic photo editing and i dont want to colour in my sketchbook, unless i copy it first.. (dont know why i like doing that) 
anyway criticize away!!   
(also tips are very very welcome :P )

#34 Posted by Manarg (98 posts) - - Show Bio

I decided to enter this, I have been toying with a new more angular style so I guess aquaman will be my first place to show it.

@Om1kron:  insane work man! love the whole wet suit feel to it, and the toes, and ofcourse the bubbles coming out of the nose are a nice touch! you got my vote when it begins. 
Also did you give him a tail??

Thanks for the compliment, I was looking around all night at wetsuits and how they're actually sewn and what not. You'd be amazed at how purpose built those things are. I mean from a design perspective I dunno why the fuck someone made him all metal/cyborg/can opener. lol
#37 Posted by spawndon (1417 posts) - - Show Bio

my piece. 
I will surely color it.

#38 Posted by deadpool1109 (452 posts) - - Show Bio
@Om1kron:  metal cyborg can opener?  you reffering to the dc costume where he has the metal uppers and the hook, or one of the designs here (please dont be mine :P) 
but yeah, it makes sense from a regular humans point of view to have an underwater character in a wetsuit, but Im guessing from the atlantians point of view Im guessing the armour is made of some sort of alloy which is created specifically for underwater combat/movement etc.

I'm talking about the current dc costume design. It seems like a rip off of bionic commando, plus the whole cyborg design thing is starting to become a cheap cop out to me where design flaws may lie. I mean I use it to, but I feel it's overused on characters who aren't complete cyborgs. the articulation lines that are supposed to make be believe this charater can now turn or bend sideways because you drew horizontal lines conveying this is flexible metal have nowhere to adhere to the body, no main metal mechanism or gear that shows how it works.  
 
But then again these characters can breath underwater and deflect bullets and can take the pressure of the ocean but if bitten by a great white, lets nevermind their original abilities, that still hurts. LOL! I just thing people make stupid design decisions with major characters.

Dang. Some good stuff here. I don't like Aquaman, but all of your art is still good.

#41 Posted by reaper2923 (2863 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice artwork everyone :P but Aquaman is still a loser

@Om1kron: he Kindda looks like Namor the submariner!!!!
#45 Posted by tonis (6561 posts) - - Show Bio
@EGoD: great interpretation, the armor is molded around him perfectly and very slickly designed. 
The shade of orange/red you chose is much better than the pumpkin orange he typically has and you did a beautiful job with the coloring. 
 
There's a lot of inspiration to work from here.

thanks,  I didn't know if I was even gonna enter since I'm trying to get other stuff done but I decided to put one out.  Everyone's done a great job in bringing new life to Aquaman. 
 
@Final Arrow:
 
 lol, that was entirely coincidence since I really didn't think about his face much.
 
@tonis:

Colouring is the one thing that takes me the longest and least favourite since I do it all by hand, thanks :)

@Om1kron: yeah i guess so, but hey its a bunch of superheros, if it was supposed to make sense to us mere mortals, they wouldn't be superheros now... would they??
