So, with all of the huballo about getting a proper CSA Aquaman, I finally broke down and decided it was high time I designed Anti-Tomato (he's still "Tomato" technically but Antimato rolls off the tongue). Set to premier towards the end of Influx' first "Volume," Antimato's world was similar to ours, except on his world, a war between the earth's heroes had driven him insane. He set to create a perfect world under his rule, killing all the world's heroes (save Teknos, left alive "for sport") in the process. He then set about building a device to let him conquer other earths... but Teknos was able to steal the device, and use it to contact the primary earth's Influx (ala Anti-Luthor). They win, Teknos sets about rebuilding "Anti-Earth," everyone's happy. The end.


Just kidding. Love Mirror Mirror stuff too much 4 that (However, the rest is in spoiler tags... In case anyone cares about being spoiled for a series I'll probably never do properly anyway  :P )

That about wraps it up for Antimato's past... so onto the design itself. The idea is that in his insanity, Antimato would alter his appearance to reflect his own twisted vision of himself. Because he sees himself as the villain, the "Antiverse" Tomato, his costume and overall look reflects that... thus why you see elements from both Trek's "Mirror Mirror" and DCAU's "Justice Lords"

Woo, I is on a roll!

The design for this is pretty much straight forward, it's a cursed version of Peter's normal gear (for those not aware, Peter is Kid Rocket. After the events of Volume one, most of the characters start wearing attire skin to what you'd see in a Final Fantasy game) thus why I was able to complete it so quickly. Even so, the aura took some fiddling with to get right.

This is wicked. :o I'd take ages to come up with just the aura in CS5!

Well, to be fair here, for the most part they're just design sketches... doodles I put together to nail down how I want to do the characters, which I then do a quick color job on (I'd say the whole process usually takes less than an hour). The idea with these is to give me something to work from when doing skins of the characters.

Peter's aura is two different techniques layered overtop one another... the background flames were drawn with vector shapes and then motion blurred and smudged around for better effect, and then I duplicated the main artwork and smudged it about to get some deeper texture closer to the artwork.

--------------------------------------

The next 3 were all sketched more or less right after one another, but because each has his/her own story I'm going to be coloring and posting them separately, rather than trying to lump them together.



Here's the first of the "Warriors of Light," Yami Herotoshi, also known on our world by the alias "Marauder."

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Now, those of you who remember his the sketch I did awhile back (unfortunately the image has been removed from imgurl and I don't have the sketch handy to rescan and upload :( ) will remember that Yami's attire nods toward typical White Mage designs. I wanted to do the same sort of thing with his counterpart, but sections that would normally be white on a typical WM outfit are gold instead. In Anti-Yami's mind, this is supposed to make himself shine brighter as a beacon of light.

Decided I wanted to make a few custom tee-shirts featuring my/fr characters, so I'm trying to nail down the style I want to use.

A custom tee shirt sounds pretty cool Tomato. What other styles are you considering? Is it a bigger design? Maybe a big Tomato Head in the center like that smiley logo for "have a nice day" or something? Are the designs in the front, back or at the sides of the tee shirt? :)

Ahhh more of the Antimato story. I dig.

The style you are going for for the t-shirts seems pretty cool. Also, it seems easily animatable, if you ever figure on doing any cartoons of those fellas...

So I had to restart my minecraft game a few months back, and I decided I needed to make a house that was a little more obvious from a distance (I play the dragon block c mod, and I have to travel to different biomes on occasion.)



This is what I came up with

I was so disappointed in the Kid Zoom outfit that Pod recently reminded me of, that I decided to try my hand at something a bit better. There's still a lot of similarities with the Kid Flash Uniform, but I doubt anyone would have trouble figuring out which to the two was the evil one at first glance.

It's pretty good, but honestly I think it would be better if it wasn't yellow on the top. The way it is it just doesn't seem like a Reverse-Kid Flash, seems more like Kid Flash gone evil. How would it look if you swapped the yellow and black?

The Kid Zoom outfit is pretty disappointing. I like the idea though.

See, I'm kind of on the opposite end of that though: part of why I did this in the first place was because I didn't like the lack of yellow in it... making the costume Red just feels like we're right back to the Flash's, and making the upper half black with a yellow lower have throws the entire outfit out of balance (the reason the costume works is because the lighter yellow draws your eye to the upper half of the costume). I did the best examples of each just to show what I mean-



And one in full on zoom colors, just because.

While each pic has it's merits, I have to say that the color balance just really doesn't work for me. Maybe the concept of a "Kid Zoom" should just fade away.  :(

Honestly... I more or less agree. As I said in the Kid Zoom thread, I much prefer his costume as Inertia (it gave him something unique and it actually worked better AFTER Bart became Kid Flash, because it served as a reminder of how far Bart had really come as a character). Ironically, the only one I actually like was the last one, which is more or less the original reverse flash costume without part of the mask.

I agree.

As for your designs, I do like the 2 versions with red/black on the top, but none of them blow me away.

Was never really happy with the version I did awhile back using the fabrica character creator, decided to redo it in actual JLU style. Still a WIP, but I obviously traced the original GA character model.

So I've been on a major spider-man kick lately, and as part of that, I went out and read "the REAL Clone saga" miniseries from a year or so ago. It was an enjoyable, if a bit TOO condensed (I feel it would have benefitted from having a few more issues of breathing room... damn trade paperback itis) but it got me thinking about Kaine... while I certainly like his modern design stylistically, there's very little about it that screams "Kaine." Between the fact that his degeneration has been cured in the modern books, and the fact that the design has almost nothing to do with the original design... he ends up looking like Spider-man alternate outfit #215. I wanted to create something that was a bit of a hybrid... Something that wasn't the horrible 90s abomination that the original Kaine design was, but still retained just enough to still be identifiable as the same character.

As you can probably tell, the design is mostly Kaine's Scarlet Spider outfit, but with a couple palette and design choices that make it look closer to the original Kaine design.

It's an interesting design. I like the new colours, but I'm not sure about that collar. The hair certainly makes him look more like Kaine but the spider eyes plus visible facial features isn't working for me.
I think a 2099 style cape or some underarm webbing might work well with this design.

Nitpicks aside, really cool costume idea. I'd like to see Marvel go this route with Kaine.

BTW I quite enjoyed the Real Clone saga. Good mini.

Yeah, I agree about the collar... honestly, the only reason I added it was because I was trying to add SOMETHING to the neck area to break up the area between neck and mask. I'll keep playing with that and the face (I'll post some variants, I wanna see how he looks with smaller eyes and without the nose/mouth.)

As for the arms... I don't think I like the idea of the 2099 cape (mainly because I don't see the 2099 cape piece working on a bigger figure) but I was considering adding arm webbing before anyway.

Upgraded to FH16 (I actually wanted to use that last night but I had to order it) so I pretty much redid it from scratch.



Personally, I'm leaning more towards the middle design... It feels most like Kaine and less Spider-clone. I don't like the no-eyes look at all (it works ok with the 90s design because the mark of kaine makes it visually interesting) and I don't think the large spider eyes look works as well with the hair.

Yeah, the middle one is the winner. Though I do appreciate the faceless one.
Good job!

Fabrica de Herois version 16. It doesn't have as many cool filters as the previous version, but it's a lot cleaner and generally easier to use. I didn't even know the previous one had masking functions, but this one has both that AND a proper layers list.

So while I was going over the Electro designs for my Sinister foes of the Spectacular Spider-Man thread, I came to the conclusion that while I love the classic Electro-with-goofy-mask in THEORY, the simple fact is... they're all just plain AWFUL. And don't get me wrong, if anything, the modern version is WORSE... that stupid blue tattoo/scar thing can go back to whatever hell it spawned from.

So, I made my own. I'm still torn on which version I like more overall... Aesthetically I think the black underoos work best, as it balances the black from the mask, but the yellow is more classic and there's something to be said for the underoo-less outfit too.

I like the one in the middle most, but all are perfectly fine reworks of the classic.  I agree, that blue & black one doesn't do anything positive for me, either.

All of them are solid designs, but the middle is the winner. Balances the top black perfectly.
