Kevzip "Since 2D animation isn't fashion anymore, Mickey doesn't look that much friendly."
Myrridin "Lord Voldemort persuaded Harry Potter to the Dark Side. He found out about Lord Voldemort's secret. He is a Sith Lord, hence his great magical abilities. Harry Potter became Lord Voldemort's apprentice and was trained in lightsabre skill. The young padawan then killed his master and became the most feared Sith-magician-Lord ever!"
Mehz "Demon Cloud!"
Cup of Joe "I decided to do a general redesign of Neil Gaiman's Sandman."
Evil_Sloth "When scorpion defeated the underworld, he gained his true form."
crimson89 "Nina attempted to submerge herself in the lifestyle of a heiress as a cover up to assassinate a particular target. Parties, shopping, drinking, the character that she portrayed took over Nina's identity. However, one day while shopping in a small bird store in downtown San Francisco, her cover was blown.....After a couple of knife fights, a dusty purple skirt, dead birds falling from the sky, and a slap in the face; Nina lit her cigarette, loaded up her machine gun, and snapped back into her old self- as the cold blooded assassin - once again..."
Crush "After years of comfort eating, Jimmy is now a complete wreck, however with Burton's recent successes he has found that people no longer call him the hideous penguin boy... but sir."
ConstantRequiem Cloud Strife - Delivery Boy Extrodinair. No one can beat his skillz! He enjoys brown paper, perusing the WoW forums, and long drives on his Vespa. However, his weak shoulders are often packed with ice.
stampedie "The new superman: more Gangsta!"

I went for Kevzip on this one with Cup of Joe very close in second place.
I considered chaichan also, but his entry looks more illustrative than character design, since we only get to see the upper body. I really liked the feel on Cup of Joe's piece, but I went vor Kevzip in the end because it looked more thought out and like there was more time put into it...
Really great stuff!
Gotta get myself to finish something soon..
cup of joe got my vote, redesigned to the extend that its given a new life, almost see it appearing in latest anime. kevzip was the other one that i was struggling to cast my vote, his entry was really "twisted" and doesnt seem out of place for doing such drastic make over for such a popular character, in the end i opted for cup of joe as i felt his technique, thought process on what to change (and what not to change) and include from research into the character, but given the choice i would have voted for both.
prophet:- captured the essence of original character and added a twist that seem almost logical what the original designer would hav progress! TLL:- am assuming darthvader in a medieval knight twist. the helmet needed a bit more adaptation, cos the "original" was fashion from a samurai helmet. Myrridin:- humour! but the empire strike back, darthvader-luke skywalker, father-son scene might provide better drama?? Mehz:- another good one- on the twist as well as character choice, looks unfinished. Evil-sloth:- idea is great but i think the design of "true form" is too rigid. Crimson89:- thou dont know the original character, but the description helps
clarify the story. the bird store idea begging for a john woo after fight, exhausted looking, sit in a corner with dead avian and feathers still floating, lit up fig look! Crush:- another humorous entry!! nice character choice and a great story! nothing to comment except improving on your execution! light:- the impact of the image is strong enough that a background story is not needed, but again improve on the execution. ConstantRequiem:- great idea, please take the twist further!! a pizza boy that "cuts" thru traffic or Fedex stampedie:- laugh my socks off!! the expression is dead on. do something about the outfit, gansta dont wear spandex Chaichan:- the twist didnt not came thru strong enough, ( this could be due to my ignorance about the origin lcharacter () Sung-jae Kim:- dante (devil may cry) and bruce lee crossover? dante's weapon was not apparent!
damn it, lucky guys and gals, still in their teen ( i'm now twice your age, or more!!!)
