For example, White shade.
Originally the design for this character was something like this:
|White Shade, early design - art by Dan Smith|
This design worked for the series when it was linear and chronologically specific. This character would have been featuring in stories taking place in the 1970's - as part of a riff on early X-Men or Teen Titans books.
However, the shift in time frame made the design a little redundant.
I've had two artist work on redesigns since then and wanted to share them with you.
White Shade Re-design 1:
|Redesign one by Jesse Toves|
White Shade Re-design 2:
|Redesign two by Nate Osollo|
It puts me in a great position of having options -never a bad thing in this world!
Please leave comments if you have a preference - I'd love to hear opinions.
