Redesign: Aquaman by GavinMichelli Redesign: Aquaman by GavinMichelli
EDIT 9/14/2013: Buy an 8.5x11 print of this on eBay for just $5! www.ebay.com/itm/281167712660?…


Here's another one of my "redesigned Justice League" pics. There's actually a whole series of these that remain uncolored (I started them back in 2003-ish, but this one was done a couple of months ago). If I ever get around to releasing a sketchbook, the whole series will be in there.

Despite his long hair and beard he looks younger, it says Aquaman which one? ?.?

There's been more than one Aquaman?  Nah, this is Arthur Curry.  I just drew him with a little more spunk and humor than he's usually portrayed with.  He might have looked a little older if I had drawn him with a full beard instead of a goatee.  I just thought I'd go for something more medieval (even though Atlantis has nothing to do with the Middle Ages ;P)

That's a little sad to say. I'm the one that thinks the crown needs to get move a bit. Aside from that it's still a great pic.

Thanks! That's definitely what I was going for. I always liked the long hair/bearded Aquaman because he looks more regal.

That is a sick redesign slayer! How do you get that gloss effect on your metals like that?

In Photoshop, you create a new layer on top of your linework (if you're putting your color layers below the lines). Set that layer to "screen". Now, choose a pretty color and airbrush lightly over the highlight areas. If I'm doing gold, I usually use orange for airbrushing gold, blue for silver, and so on :)
