Attachment 1210640I've never really did one of these things so I thought I'd show you guys my version of Petey and Spidey. I'm a big fan of the Super Dorko Peter Parker from the early 60's more then the modern cool ass Petey of today. To me the Geek Pete was the ultimate mask. No one ever suspects a friendless braniac loser with a hunch to be the super strong, wall crawling, web swinging hero. I wanted to elongate his porportion and give him very lanky figure. This look to me sort of makes him look more "SPIDER" like when he pops on the suit. Anyways...Tell me what ya think of my version fellow devs.

I feel that a mixture of Warren Ellis Clark Kent and Cris Reeve's portrayal of him in the Superman films to be the best disguise. When you mix that up you get a clumsy, head sunked between the shoulders, Bowlegged, slightly stuttering, might of been a nerd in highschool, cowardly Clark. I not only see the confident exterior when he puts on the red, blue and yellow tights but sort of a exhale. The chance for him to breath and be himself. To me Superman is truly who he is.
I could be wrong though...tell me what your thoughts are guys and what ya think.

This guys is a pretty complex dude.
Every body knows that the Playboy, Womanizing
Bruce Wayne is an act. That playful rambunctious Bruce before his parents were killed doesn't exist anymore so he never grew to become that kind of man. Vengeance and hatred pretty much took it's place. So His whole life after the point was consumed by getting back at the people who reminds him of his tragic past.
So he prepares himself because he knows that going after such men was inevitable. He defeats his greatest childhood fear by becoming it and "Batman" is the result. So I feel the masked mysterious man of vengeance who want to strike fear in the hearts of man is the real Bruce Wayne. But this again is my opinion. What do you guys think?....

There's tons of people out there who have escaped there past problems by suppressing them so far within there minds to a point where its almost like they've never even happened. This guys just couldn't seemed to achieve such a dream. I'm a big fan of the hulk that started up in the early 80's with Bruce being abused as a child and having (DiD) which is basically a spit personality .
I feel that the reason Hulk is so strong and so perpetually enraged is because of Bruce’s strong inner emotional agony and Rage from his past.
To me Hulk is like a living personification of Bruces inner self. This Wild, Montruos, Powerful sudconcious bomb that has basically exploded. This Bruce here would probably be one who seems to not only be running from a murder he didn't commit or Lieutenant Striker’s men but possibly this beast that lies within him as well. Even though he know’s that’s pretty much impossible. Hulk is partly who he is.
..But What do you guys feel?

I like these, man! I guess being a general comic fan helps. Fun stuff. The only thing I'd like to point out is that Peter's head shape completely changes from when he's dressed normal, then as Spidey. I'd love to see more.

hey cool stuff!
I personally think your showing too much black lining in the final colour work (Especially on the hulk).
really, when it comes to vector art or cell-shaded like 2D renditions, your values are what separate forms (not the lining).
Classy work. I like it a lot. It's true the values are normally what matter over lines in vector work, but I think it works here. You'ld never tell your Clark Kent was superman , and the Batman one is the best.
I disagree to a degree about the linework, though. I think the black interior lines are only a problem because in most of them there aren't exterior outlines, or the exterior outlines are colored but the interior linework is black. The red outlines on Spidey and Supes are particularly distracting.

I think those are all fucking awesome. They represent the characters so well.
I'd love to see these animated.

super man was my favorite, batman was cool too
nice work. clear color with cool pose.
They are all awsome.
These are cool. Can't say I like the Superman one that much but the Batman is sweet.
Good job budy, superma and batman are good. Hulk version could be improved.
It's like a breath of fresh air to me. I'm pretty serious; when I saw it I felt like I was on top of a mountain early in the morning,
Now a few comic strips with these reimaginations would be just classy.
I really like the piece in your deviant art that reminds me of samurai jack, but better.
I friggin' LOVE THEM! GREAT WORK! You captured the moods to perfection...
OMG dude, these RULE so hard!
You can call me sir..
My two favorite heroes are Spidey and Deadpool; since the merc' ain't there, I mostly was lookin' at Parker, and you didn't disappoint. Good job!

Very cool character designs. Congrats !
Cool stuff - I totally agree with your analysis of the characters, and the direction you took them in.
I never felt that Kent was much of a cover for Superman. (wait! take off your glasses again!) So this dorky Kent is a complete switch from Superman.
Not so crazy about Hulk there. Needs a little something something, I think.
YOUR DRAWINGS RULE ALL!!!!! Terrific line art, great interpretations of the concepts. Good stuff, all around!
Damn these are great. Show some more. =)
these are sweet. the batman is superb. love the action and the minute dynamics of the poses. damn nice. tho i want more from the spidey pose and would like to see bruce in a "i got bill gates money" type outfit.
WOW!!! I am Incredibly estatic that you guys like the work. REALLY COOL!!!
I got mo for ya...>
Kind of thought of Matt as a straight faced, dapper
superbly professional and constantly observant lawyer but
one who of course still seems dependent on the walking stick for secret disguise reasons..here. To me this DD guy is kind like a mix between Batman and the Punisher. He seems to not only want vengeance but Punishment when it comes the criminals he goes after and will go through any means get both. This of course spawned from the tragic death of his father when he was a kid. I don't really see to much of a mask man here I just see a guy who is now doing what he always wanted to accomplish ever. Putting bad people away by day and doing the same at night. With his suit I always thought that eventually someone was going to use that ningitsu background of his and place some of that in his Daredevil attire but it never really happened. So I took the liberty of alternating it just a touch. But what's your thought's on this dude?
