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.

Your Galactus gives me some inspiration. I think going from the whole, 'man in a suit' thing makes a TON of sense.

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! :)

Sweet.

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.

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..

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.

Ultron is my favorite design, but I'd have to say, Galactus is the best as far as a redesign goes. Considering the lame ass design he has now, this one would be the best.

Thanos look bad ass! Love the direction you took with galactus. I think it's a nice little in between of movie galactus and comics galactus. My absolute favorite is the Baron, though. The hydra emblem looks awesome!
