As I mentioned in my last post I am planning on revisiting a concept I created back in high school. Way back in 1987! This is my super hero group, the ENFORCEMEN. This is a quick sketch of the Enforcemen line-up. This in not the final designs, just a quick rough sketch to get down the feel of what I was going for. I really wanted to keep the essence of what I was trying to acheive back then. So mostly what I did was really just update the look of each character.
Starting from the top left, the Enforcemen officer remains essentially untouched. I always pictured them as high tech SWAT team type in full body armor. I changed the look of the 4 armed alien, the concept now is that the alien is in the Robot Armor. He is still 4 armed, I just felt he needed to look more bad ass. The old version looked dated to me, especially with his leather outfit and the spiked arm brace. The character on the top left is the leader of the group and I tried to keep the look fairly the same. He still has the short hair and badge on his left side of his chest. Again, just an updated look.
Now to the group on the bottom. Starting from the left, this guy remains fairly the same. I always intended to give him this camouflage outfit, so it's just updated. The women were them main fixes. Because, the old outfits just wasn't going to work now. Especially the mini skirt and cleavage revealing leather outfits. They gotta go. Now they have body armor that protects their whole body. And I tried to make one of the women more statuesque and model type compared to the cuter girl with the short hair. Finally, the bad ass of the group. My original drawing was the guy with the spikes coming out of his costume. This was my attempt to create my version of Wolverine. Since I don't want to go that route again, I decided to make him have a different power altogether. But he still is the bad ass of the group and still is the Martial artist that you wouldn't want to make angry.
I'll continue to post artwork updates whenever I can. Take care guys and talk to you later!
