I thought I'd pick a villain as the subject of this costume contest. I'd like everyone to have a go at redesigning the costume of...

THANOS.

Deadline is June 10th.

@ARMIV2: This is great. The way you drew him, makes him look powerful.(Like he should be.) But I'm a little skeptical on the headgear. It kinda looks like shredders helmet from TMNT. Not that it makes it look horrible but that's just my honest opinion.  Still looks great, are you gonna color it?

Thank you. I think I see what you mean by the crest thingy lookin' like Shredder's helmet piece...thing, but that wasn't intentional at all.

As for coloring it...I didn't have any plans.

I knew it wasn't intentional. Don't get me wrong it looks amazing and the headpiece fits the costume. Just had to mention it.  
 
Aw man. : (

Well thank you once again.

The coloring thing is more of an issue of time for me.

@ARMIV2: That is really good, it fits very well. It reminds me of a more bad ass version of his "pilgrimage" attire when he came back after The End.

#13 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (706 posts) - - Show Bio

Augh! I'm on my 4th version. No matter what I make, it never feels like an improvement. Thanos is one of my favorite villains and it's really difficult trying to improve on it.

@ARMIV2: I love the pose. He should totally have an explosion going off right behind him.

Also, it looks like he just kicked The Shredder's ass and stole his hat ... awesome.

Here's my design. I tried to keep the familiarity of his classic look and just slightly modernize him. The coloring didn't come out quite as I had hoped, but I'm happy with it nevertheless.

Cropped and enlarged my entry.

Aww lame how did I not see this? I guess I should get to work

#40 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (706 posts) - - Show Bio

I am not kidding in the least when I say that I made 10 different versions of Thanos for this contest. I tried building the Infinity gems into the suit, first to match the flow of chi on the katra scale. That made him look like he had clown buttons. Then I put them on his chest, fists, helmet, and belt. Then I gave him a giant scythe to tie in to his lady Death. Then several different iterations of each of those concepts. None of them felt like an improvement on Thanos' basic design. He's always been one of my favorite villains and I feel he's pretty close to perfect in his design.

So I said screw it all and decided to just skip this contest. Then my best friend gave me a suggestion. A suggestion so ballsy I couldn't ignore it. And here is the fruit of that labor:

Very cool picture, I think you accomplished your goal, modernizing him, but keeping him familiar. I think the blue should be darker, but as you said the color didn't come out the way you want, and I'm no artist so i'm not really in a place to judge.

@ARMIV2:Yours is quite impressive as well. I really, really like the look you gave him. You are a talented artist for sure, keep up the awesome pictures. When I figure out what I want, might have to ask you to draw it, lol, love your style.

#45 Posted by ARMIV2 (8520 posts) - - Show Bio

Yep, voting is gonna be epic.
