Marvel Villains by anklesnsocks Marvel Villains by anklesnsocks
so here are a couple redesigns i did for fun. took some of the biggest, supposed to be epic badasses, and tried to take away some of the corniness. tried to atleast.

you guys may have seen these on Project Rooftop.

here are a little description on each.

Thanos – This was my attempt to take all the corniness from him. I always felt his costume kept him from being a huge cosmic threat that he should be. I also added the hood to tie him to Death, visually.

Kang – He is from the future. he should look like it, and have tech that looks impossible.

Ultron – So advanced that he is a Biomech — a living robot.

Baron Von Strucker – I tried to combine his WW2 costume with that of the Hydra tights. I wanted to redesign the Hydra logo and streamline it better to better implement as a design element for the costume.

Galactus – My basic idea is that he is sort of a void of power. Make him a more visual representation of the “abstract” concept. The hole in his chest is where he eats planets. Afterwards his body physically becomes whatever main element of that planet was. So if he eats a star, his body becomes fire.

Brilliant designs and ideas for these characters. Especially Galactus. Love the planet-eating chest-hole part.

love it Ultron needed a little meat on his bones and love that he is biomech

I absolutely love your Kang.  My one disagreement is I would have made his cape purple because I would never have guessed that was him unless you told me.  The rest are okay.

Love Barren Von Strucker.

Damndamndamndamn! Damn! How do you design like that? I want to learn to design like that.
thorimthestormlord Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015
I like your interpretation of Galactus. The picture defiantly gives of an impression he's this abstract being that consumes worlds.
Kaedegirl Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I  actually have a soft spot for Baron Von Strucker! the  design is so on spot!
monsieurchicken Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
But what does Galactus become if he eats a giant space cloud?

Excellent work!
Artsammich Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
I love these redesigns and the thought that went into them.
Kisonii Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013
Your Galactus gives me some inspiration. I think going from the whole, 'man in a suit' thing makes a TON of sense.
HINCAPIE319 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i feel like these make excellent villains in iron man armored adventures
stoneMonkeyHi-v Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012

Your Thanos is inspiring me somehow...
Herokiller12344 Featured By Owner May 9, 2012
Thanos and Kang look good, But the others are not that great.
DANJAMESV Featured By Owner May 5, 2012   Digital Artist
marvel needs to be contacting u right now these are amazing loving the galactus redesign
PencilsAndNougats Featured By Owner May 5, 2012  Student General Artist
Absolutely love 'em, especially Galactus and Thanos. They're just...brilliant. I also really like Ultron's posture, although I think the torso part should be made smaller. But it looks unique, and it still has a great design, so it doesn't really matter. Terrific job, man! :)
EbolaSparkleBear Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
Ultron needs to go on a diet:P

Nice work!:clap:
tinyguy712 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
You're getting all the credit since this is the way I see the characters now. Can't draw them any other way!
Ultrabountyhunter Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012
Galactus looks awesome.
Owl-Robot Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist

I like the idea for Galactus. It takes what was really a fairly goofy character, and makes him kinda scary.
Kang is also really nicely done.
yanni101 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
These are really cool! I especially like Kang the Conquerer.
Nerosus Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2012
I really love your design and idea on Thanos, Von Strucker, Kang and Galactus. Especially Thanos and Galactus. I always thought these looked rather corny, especially as time passed, their looks never really got updated as with some of the other villains/heroes. Especially Galactus.. I always thought it was wrong to make him look so human..
nervmeister Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2012
Galactus now reminds me of an anti-spiral.
EbolaSparkleBear Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
Ha! Nice:headbang:
druje Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011  Professional General Artist
I am hostilely telling you, that you would probably be the best choice to revamp the Marvel characters' looks. I'd trust you with it.
hoppopngo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
awesomeness, but galactus should be more top heavy... ya think?
SURFACEART Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011  Professional Artist
nice designs man, also like the color schemes
What-the-Gaff Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

holy shit i could take that galactus seriously. the one that's just a big guy with a silly hat always buged me a little.
greenestreet Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2011
These need to be apart of a new animation!!!
gwdill Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Hobbyist
Kang and Thanos are AWESOME!! The others look pretty cool too...:)
Citizen56 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011  Student
All excellent designs. Smooth lines and the fine point really make the shapes pop. It'ss all very subdued while still remaining the elements that make it fantastic.
Carpincho-ZC Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011  Student Filmographer
You inspire me. I want to show you something, a design for superman:
