STAMP: WIP to protect from whim violation reporter by Scintillant-H STAMP: respect good violation reporters by Scintillant-H ElsAnna stamp nonincest by Scintillant-H
Remember a LONG time ago when I mentioned redrawing all the old Teen Titan books (starting with Slade, that is) to look like the cartoon show style? Weeeell, I'm back on that ;) The only thing annoying me is having to "translate" the other character's outfits into TT cartoon style look-y. I don't feel like wasting that kind of time when I've got tons of other things to get done, including that I finally got the steampunk mermaid tail designs FINISHED so I can start making pinups of my mermaid OCs in their steampunk gear (LE F***ING YAY!!!) PLUS I now have two new ships.
(to skip down to the "how I need your help" part, skim to the red bullets :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred: )

First one... I saw the old Yule Brynnr movie "The Journey", AND IT WAS AWESOME. I now ship his character with his love interest, even though she, out of guilt, rejected Brynner (but she loved him too) and he... well.... the way his character ended up. I won't spoil it for you, just GO WATCH IT. :D It drags a bit in the middle here and there, but it's SO worth it. You get to know these characters and how and why they came to respect one another.

Second ship? It's a "friend"ship ;) Miss Martian and Nightcrawler. :love: they have this cool-ass brother-sister love thing going on in my head. I wanted to ship them romantically, but I realized they're not compatible enough as they are... and I love them too much as they really are to change them. :D So they are shipped as the bestest best friends EVAH. I have a chibi design and I'm going to use it!
I'm also going to make a stamp to that effect.

But, yes, back to the Teen Titans.....

Taking a look at the differences between the original comics and the cartoon show, you can see just HOW different they really were. It was dimmed down for kids, but the style had it's own very specific charm and style. No flash, no glitz or frilly poofy costumes--it was all "flattened", and much of the gold was downgraded to silver (with a few exceptions). I've got the patience and interest to "translate" the characters that interest me personally, but that is VERY few characters. I can do Tim Drake, when it gets to his storyline (and if I can't finish my own design, I can ask Glee if I can use hers ;p ) but many many others have hero or villain costumes but they never appeared in the cartoon show. Meaning they need a "dimmed down" and "flattened" redesign.

The whole point of the project is to tell the same story with a different look. I'm not going to draw, say, [] in their old comic book outfit. Nothing wrong with the outfit, but it's not supposed to look the same.

This is the KEY REASON that I haven't tackled this project sooner. I didn't have the time or the interest in the individual characters to invest time in reinventing them. When I go into a design, I REALLY go into it. Don't have the time, here.

I'm not going into specific characters now, just putting it out there that I'll need some assistance from someone at some point. Maybe I'll hold a really small contest with a 5 point prize per character or something... not sure. Just updating on that. ;)

So far I've sketched out a few pages of the old 1980s Teen Titans #2;

See all that? Know what that all is? Prototype sketches. Things that other, more insecure, artists delete from deviantART in shame. Because it's... that bad?
I see purpose in this. Post it. Show others "look at this. You think I'm so good? Well, this is how shitty some of my prototypes are. Work hard and you can achieve the SAME end result I can." If someone doesn't want to learn to draw better, fine and dandy, but I hate hearing people have no confidence because they think I'm so awesome and they don't stand a chance of matching me. ANYONE can learn to draw as well as or better than me. ;) Don't give up. Take a look at those HIVE members in their robes. It's an oval, a triangle, and some lines for sides. You're telling me you can't draw THIS?

If you can draw that, you can draw this;
