As is tradition, the winner of the previous Round Robin gets the honor of choosing another user on the Vine to bring a fresh new idea to the table. My choice was Primmaster64. For those of you who don't know him, he's the go-to-guy for Superman-related stuff here on the vine.

He chose to go with his own concept character - Val-El. According to him, Val-El is the son of Superman and Maxima with the backstory of having his parents killed (ala-Batman) and being brought up by... Surprise! Surprise! Batman!

Here's a sample concept design of mine. Forgive the ugly art. I'm a mediocre artist. But I hope you get the picture.

We'll go with three weeks on the deadline. Be creative & have fun!

Deadline is on the last day of Feb, 12:00PM Eastern Time.

Round Robin #1 - PD Character (Turoksonofstone)

Round Robin #2 - Marvel Redesign (The Dark Huntress)

Round Robin #3 - Bio Mech Disney (Silkcuts)

Round Robin #4 - Anti-Hero (SteveRodgers)

@ssejllenrad: This is very interesting. So we can do our own version of his character I see. Nice unique idea.

I stopped there. I cried. I tried to tie a noose around my neck. The noose broke. I cried some more. I came back to post this.

Perhaps a Mod or Staff member could post this contest topside so more Viners can see it?

@ssejllenrad: So this is an original character created by Primmaster64 and that is your entry?

Also, how dare you call yourself mediocre.

@LeeThomasART: That was actually made some months ago so it wouldn't be allowed to be an entry. I don't think I'll enter this contest. :D Well I do see myself as mediocre. And don't see it as a bad thing. I just know there are still more to improve upon. And I know I'm not even half-way to being a good artist. :D
 
@Decept-O: As long as it's the son of Supes and Maxima, then I guess you can do your own version of the character.

YA.

I decided to post another "concept art" I made for this character.... Just to keep the thread alive. Not an entry though. This was made prior to the contest.

Why do it in Toriyama-esque anime style you guys might ask? Well, let's just say the one whose idea we're using now is among the top contributors of the dragonball content here in the vine. :D

@payno: F*cking awesome! Dude! What are you doing here in CV? You should be like in Warner or something making animations ala-Bruce Timm.... I'm loving your design 140%!!!!

@LeeThomasART: I see you went with the more Batman look there. Nice! Another awesome entry from you mate!

@Primmaster64: We've only got 2 entries right now but I think you can see the talent is top-notch. Now you know the capabilities of viner artists, you should pitch in more of your brilliant ideas here in the artist showoff... Why am I saying this? I still feel bad for letting you wait so long about the request on Val-El... Now you can request from better and non-lazy artists here as well. Nyahahahaha! Cheers! :D

#28 Posted by Primmaster64 (21137 posts) - - Show Bio

Its pretty cool! I see that you brought some Batman elements into him.

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

liked this idea and all the wide range of takes on it so far. I figure the offspring of these two would be one hell of a warrior.

Maxim-El (son of Superman & Maxima)

@tonis: thank you Mr. tonis sir. I did toy with "Son of dead dudes, property of bat dressing psycho", but it just didn't seem to have the same ring to it.

Times like these I wish I was a better artist. I'm always thinking of the spawns of two super heroes. Its an everyday thing.
