Before I give the specs on Round Robin #2, I wanted to give a quick refresher on how the Round Robin contests work, since they're still fairly new:
Traditionally, the winners of the Artist Show-Off contests get to pick the theme of the next contest in the series as a reward. The Round Robin contests are different because the winning artist then picks someone else in the Comic Vine community to pick the theme for the next contest. Why all the roundabout? This contest is meant to promote that other Viners who don't traditionally visit the Artists Show-Off forums come and hang out with us. It also injects some fresh ideas into the contest themes. 
 
Now on to Round Robin #2!
 
The theme for this round was picked by The Dark Huntress:
In the spirit of the "New 52" redesigns currently being promoted by DC, what would your take be on redesigning any Marvel character?
 
Any character in the Marvel universe is up for grabs! Of course, this doesn't involve just a costume redesign. If you'd also change something about the character's origin, or would like to slightly alter their powers, tell us that too!
 
Deadline is September 19th, 2011, 11:00PM Eastern Time. Any medium is accepted. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

Edit: Added accepted medium info. Thanks to Decept-O for pointing that out!

@jennifermontes: Awesome. Glad you and Dark Huntress collaborated on this and are continuing my contest idea which is now Comic Vine's contest. This is a great idea and hopefully artists will join for it. Congrats again, Jennifer, and this is a great idea by Dark Huntress.

Here we go pretty quick entry, but i enjoyed drawing it. 
 
Two of my favourite marvel characters Cloak and Dagger. 
Ive basically revamped their appearance i guess.
 I was hoping that i could draw more, I enjoyed this contest so if its allowed could i draw more characters?

@The Dark Huntress: Thank You. I am glad you like my idea. I think this subject matter for this contest is a great choice, already getting responses. @Blizaga101: Wow that was fast! Well I assume you could post more drawings of more characters but it would be best to ask JenniferMontes and Dark Huntress to be certain. If you do more characters, though, just my input here, you would have to finally make a decision which piece would be your official entry. I've done that before so I think that might be the route to take.

52-escizing Marvel characters? Hmmm...

#10 Posted by karbacca (143 posts) - - Show Bio

I decided to go a bit crazy with mine. I did Wolverine as if he had been experimented on to unleash his feral side. Giving him the kind of after effect that Beast had. I plan to color it with shades from one of his costumes (brown and yellow).

@Decept-O: @Blizaga101: Yeah, it definitely would be helpful if you guys specify what your official entry is going to be. Having multiple entries per person would make the voting process more hairy than it needs to be. I wouldn't worry about it too much for now, but just something to keep in mind.
 
Great entries so far!

Here's my Iron Fist entry. Oish, looks like it could use a little more cleanin' right over...yeah... 
#13 Posted by Decept-O (7277 posts) - - Show Bio

@karbacca: That's incredible, man, really awesome. @ARMIV2: Iron Fist with an adequate costume design, cool work.

When the Phoenix Force took host of The Stepford Cuckoo's, instead of splitting itself into three, it ripped the minds of the triples from there bodies and forced them into the body of Celeste. The sisters thought mentally for dominance and control of the Phoenix Force and the host body, eventually Phoebe became the dominant personality. She embraced the Phoenix readily and enjoyed the power giving to her from it. However she constantly faced struggles from her sisters so the Phoenix Force took the amalgamation onto a whole new level and moulded the three minds into one, eradicating the problem of internal struggles.

Not really a huge change, but...oh well...
#19 Posted by gunjin (716 posts) - - Show Bio

this is going to be kind of hard. most marvel costumes are pretty updated already. 
 
@ARMIV2@DomDom: nice job and you guys picked two of my favorites.

It's awesome!

@gunjin: It's dificult this contest. Marvel Comics is on road, characters are good, don't need changes for me. But I must to say that Superman, Batman, WW and other iconic DC character don't need, for me, this stupid revamp.. I hate this, soooooo much

@Gambit1024:  that's awesome. 

@maxicere: i actually kinda like the dc revamp. i hope they really unify and incorporate the different universes they absorbed/dissolved.

I'll get one in this time. I have all weekend off. I'm just trying to figure out who to recreate.
#35 Posted by Decept-O (7277 posts) - - Show Bio

@Raven0207: Looking forward to it, and I'm in the same boat as you are, also trying to figure out which character to do here. Plenty available though!

#36 Posted by jennifermontes (47 posts) - - Show Bio

I finally decided on redesigning Namor for this contest, since he's one of the oldest characters in the Marvel universe. I think that deciding on a character was the hardest part!

#37 Posted by EGoD (1515 posts) - - Show Bio

I chose Magneto for this constest

#38 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been working with moviegeek17 on his Marvel Genesis project and went with Iron Fist.

#41 Posted by maxicere (936 posts) - - Show Bio

Here my entry.

I choose to redesign: Ben Grimm "The Thing". My idea is that Ben looks like Sandman, but with stones, no sand. He also can increase his tall and proportions. A huge hulk of stone (not orange this time)

@maxicere: very creative way to update ole blue eyes. I really like the idea of him being able to grow like that too. Good one :)

#43 Posted by Decept-O (7277 posts) - - Show Bio

Elektra's DNA is extracted and a clone is created, and all her assassin fighting techniques are embedded in the clone's thought processes. The clone's body is then merged with a cybernetic body, making the clone a cyborg of sorts, but with a catch. Elektra now takes the name "Elektra" to new heights as she is given the ability to control electricity.

@maxicere: Incredible work. Plenty of great entries for this one, glad its going on!

ok so this took me a helluva lot longer than anticipated. esp to be so rough. super huge pic, i can break it down to individual ones, but i like the cover layout. i thought the x-men needed real villains again, so i redid the horsemen. weapons should match biblical revelations.

i guess i combined some elements from captain planet and some metal influences (and the power rangers ?). choosing the right horsemen (logic-wise and powersets) took super long as i debated countless lineups including using the illuminati or cabal. anyways key is below:

clockwise from upperleft -

natalia essex - dr. s. sex (s for sinister i guess mwuaha)

nate a - apocalypse or apex (time travelling ship right? totally explains pestilence)

alani ryan - kanaloa - death (this one's my favorite, esp because i was able to turn loa into kanaloa ala archangel style) - shark's name is "poison the well"

xian chi xan - desert ghost - pestilence - vulture's name is "winds of plague" (didn't pick foley/elixir because its more obvious and so the x-men have a counter on their side - plus x-men 2099 word. he kinda looks like the moonlight knight - sailor moon anyone - huh?)

japheth - angler - famine - maggots' names "the famine" or eany and meany (wish i didn't decide on the detailing on the coils - skirt look is based on the hyena men of nigeria)

cordelia frost - red queen - war - cerberus' name "red fang" or the dogs of war

click image to enlarge (caveat - inage is 5mb so not 56k friendly i guess - who still has 56k?)

edit: click this for even larger - for the full size though you'll have to right click on image and open link in a new tab. also if anyone would like to reink/recolor this for me, that'd be awesome.

@maxicere:

awesome, i like the sandman style effect on him.

@Decept-O:

very nice. now her name makes a little more sense ha.

#47 Posted by tonis (6202 posts) - - Show Bio

@gunjin: incredible man, I know how painful injecting the thought process into things can be on time constraints, and pushing for that kind of completeness is just killer. So worth the time ;)

@tonis: thanks brother. for some reason i didn't see the second page so i totally missed yours and egods. love it. esp being a huge rand fan. is that misty's child i see? alicia keys with a kung fu grip - hell yes.

#49 Posted by Decept-O (7277 posts) - - Show Bio

@gunjin: Thanks. Yeah, couldn't pass up the word play, it is what gave me the idea.

I like what you have here, very colorful to say the least. Great work.

hehe, I would so pay to see a killer Alicia Keys kung fu flick any day :)

I HAD to love karate, my pops insisted on watching it on Saturday afternoons (after my cartoons) and I was like HELL YEA!!! When I first saw Iron First in the comic shop it was an instant sell to me. Really enjoyed working on that based on moviegeek17's creative ideas.
