Here’s my rendition of Patriot for the Official Marvel Handbook Redux Edition! Had a lot of fun doing this one.
Awesome! I saw this the other day at OHTMU redux and was pleased to see your work over there as well. Nice redesign, very clean and it nicely retains the most important elements of the original. I really appreciate this kind of reductive redesigning as opposed to the more common nu 52 style of cluttering up the costume. Now I'm actually interested in this character. I'd read a book about him with that design! Great work!
he actually looks more like a 40's character in your version.
Thanks! I was definitely trying to play that up way more.
well, that's your style anyway. it's what i love about your stuff.
Thank you! Yeah, New Frontier had a huge affect on me.
I was hesitant to make a Cooke comparison, just because I thought you'd be tired of hearing about an obvious influence, but yeah. It's there and it's awesome. You took an ugly looking character, retained all of the design elements and completely fixed it. Good work!
it's a beautiful style. so clean and uncluttered. just the character and a background. no need for speed lines everywhere.
