I think Deathstroke might do with more body armour. He has slight super strength so the added weight wouldn't bother him. I do like his more practical approach in his gear. Though fans would be disappointed if he had no sword. Probably the best Titans villain.

You've gotten rid of Black Manta's iconic helmet. I disagree with that approach.

Thank you for bringing back Harley Quinn's iconic look. (Iconography is important to me, it seems.)

Shriek had the best episodes in Batman Beyond. I'm not making that up. The episodes concerning him often had huge amounts of character development for Bruce and Terry and amazing fights that showed just how sound can kill. This is an improvement without a doubt over his weird claw hands. And thank you for remembering this villain.

Brainiac's almost turtle look is awesome. I always thought he was better as an intellectual foe. Using minions and robots and all that. This is probably my favourite design of his. Though he is missing the Brainiac tri-circle symbol.

Mr. Freeze might be too ... Tron Legacy in my opinion. Great design, just a lot of glowing.

Luthor's suit looks great. it got way bulky in New Earth. This one looks more serviceable.

Joker shouldn't look that dirty. He sees the world as a performance and so should look his best. I mean he specifically goes and gets a similar suit each and every time and keeps it in good condition or at least tries too.

Croc's more bestial look is awesome, really brings out the character. Or at least until his redemption.

I should say I'm speechless but I'm not. This is simply brilliant! And I'm not being nice. If I'm ever looking for some help in character design, I'll be calling. I think DC needs to take your Wonder Woman design very serious. Honestly I think they've always had her concept all wrong. This looks spot on. You defiantly should explore more with her and her series. And Batman/Superman look awesome! LOVE IT! ALL OF IT!

Stick-bag Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
Black Manta actually looks pretty menacing here, instead of the stupid "iconic" helmet DC still insist on forcing onto him.
DualStarDagger Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
really like batman and wonder woman here--your redesign of her makes her look like she's out to thrash an army.

Love these man 
otakusenpai Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
personaly I like the batman redesign the most it looks simuller to the dark knight outfit but balances it out with the grey on his chest also I like the idea of a batman that isnt a full on body builder and uses his brains far more than his brawn
RyanOttley Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Professional Artist
So good. We need a good Lobo redesign though.

Nice! I think your Wonder Woman design is my favorite. Reminds me of Izumi from Full Metal Alchemist.

Kurvos Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
Pffh... I am SO totally sure it's just pure coincidence the 2 only completely naked characters here happens to be women, right? :P So totally not sexist or anything... oh no, totally not.
Maybe if you made only 1 of them naked, you could have gotten away with an excuse if you tried really hard... but there's just no way in hell you're getting away with this. And of course, both of them are more or less depicted as being sexy.
You could have made Killer Croc naked too, for instance. But CONVENIENTLY, you stopped his drawing just around his waist. Not to mention, you drew him as ugly and repulsive as humanly possible.

I'll admit - some of these designs are great. But I will not let this just pass by with such a questionable thing in it like this. And don't you dare come with the "I'm straight, so I of course love the female figure and want that to be drawn sexy" argument.
anklesnsocks Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Professional Filmographer
well neither were supposed to be sexy.
Kurvos Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
Compare Cheetah and Poison Ivy with Killer Croc... are those two or he the one most likely to get laid? :P
anklesnsocks Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Professional Filmographer
just because they are naked dont assume im going for sexy.
Kurvos Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
Alright, sorry then. I guess I have to accept your excuse of it being a coincidence the two only naked characters here are female though.
And just for the record, I'm gay. So I don't find them sexy myself anyway.
anklesnsocks Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Professional Filmographer
cheetah is supposed to be a straight up animal, so why would she be wearing clothing?

and ivy is a super nature hippie who isnt ashamed of her body.

croc was just a really big drawing, so i didnt have more room on my page to continue the drawing down. id have made him naked as well.
Kurvos Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
Fair enough then. I'm sorry and apologize for being wrong and overreacting.
igcreator Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
I absolutely love these redesigns, primarily because you have tailored their body shapes so well. Their postures and proportions, and how their weight is distributed says SO MUCH about what they actually do as a hero/villain, whether it's brains, brawns, gymnastics, stealth, or just straight-up beat-em-ups.

I only pray for a day when stuff like this can be seen in interiors more often.
griotman Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
Now this is how I think the rebooted DC characters should look like. It should have more of a gritty dark graphic novel feel to it......
I like what you did with Wonder Woman. She actually looks like an Amazon because of the somewhat retro greek hairstyle.

Joker actually looks like someone who fell in a vat of chemicals and survived. Awesome!

Batman with what seems to be an apparent super lightweight armor.

The Superman attire is superb and I feel as if you were going for an alien peace officer with a bit of an ego.

Catwoman looks like a retro acrobat/burglar, which is cool.

Deathstroke actually looks like an assasisin with military background.

Black Manta looks like a BAWSS.

I also like the lightning bolt design for Black Adam.

Catman looks gritty. Cool.

Smaller Lex Luthor armor. Cool.

You brought in a little TDKR for Bane...I like it. He looks like a linebacker/brawler.

I love the nude hippie look you gave to Poison Ivy. I think it's PERFECT. I've always wondered why Ivy always had clothing even though she's a free-spirited evil hippie with plant powers LOL.

All the others look great as well. BRAVO!!! Why don't you do the same type of redesigns for more characters? I would love to see your take on characters like Martian Manhunter, Zod, etc. KEEP UP THE PHENOMENAL WORK. DC should have hired you to make the designs for New 52!!
