Here's my entry into the
"Out with the Old in with the New" redesign the Teen Titans contest!
FULL VIEW IS A MUST ON THIS ONE!
Finished it last night, I know the colors are pretty flat, but I was too tired and suffering from allergies to work on it anymore. It's so hard to draw while you're nose continuously keeps running! Ah Spring, how I hate you!
First off, in my versions of the Teen Titans, not only did I change their costumes, but I aged them too. I was thinking, why would they change costumes, and I came up with in my mind that they would be getting older and as their bodies and minds grow, their individuality and styles would be reflected in their costumes. Makes sense to me!
Okay, so we got Robin first. Went with my version of what I think his first Nightwing costume would look like before he actually becomes Nightwing. Gave him kind of a "Batman" utility belt, gloves and cape to tie into where he comes from. I really think this costume works well for "Birdy Boy"!
Next is Starfire, my little Bumgor!
Okay, first off she's got one of those Tamaranian head pieces that Blackstar wore and she eventually donned in a later episode of TT! Made her outfit a bit more revealing, compared to her original comics outfit, I still left too much clothes on her! Same color design from the cartoon and like the other Titans, has the same type of Titans communicator belt buckle!
Beast Boy is third and I decided it was time for BB to get away from being the foolish looking one and get a more hip look! Got the tight really short sleeve shirt, Titan's belt, and baggy cargo jeans! He's got his "tough guy" fingerless gloves on so if he wants to change his hands into claws they wont tear his outfit! I was originally going to try and make sense of how his outfit changed with him when he went animal, but I'll leave that to the old Reed Richards unstable molecules costume material explanation!
My new BB is coming into his Teen heart throb image that I know he has!
Raven probably went through the most re-design from me! I decided to get away from her cartoon/comics outfit completely and try to match her outfit with her personality. Still has her short hair, though now with a bit of red in it! Red is fire or danger, and that that's part of Raven! I always saw her as a bit punk or Goth and so I designed her outfit with that in mind. Got the corset/bustier top with the fishnet attached. Still got her "Raven" gloves and I gave her a vintage style skirt, something she might have found at a thrift store and modified or made herself, complete with fishnets under it. Kept the purple color to her, but with some red through out. Finished her off with some butt-kicking boots! Raven is dark and sexy to me, and I thought her new costume should be edgy and sexy to match!
Cyborg got the Transformers overhaul! Basically modified his basic design from the show, and upgraded him a bit! Made his shoulder armor a bit larger, and added some shoulder mounted missile launchers. His forearms are more robotic, with the ability to change into two of his arm cannons but also to hide other weapons! My Cyborg flies, (couldn't understand why the cartoons didn't), so he's got some thrusters on his waist and in his lower legs! His lower legs can also "Transform" in to wheeled feet, think that girl robot in "Robots", so Cyborg doesn't have to rely on the T-Car anymore to get around fast! BOOYA!!!
There you have them folks, my re-designed New Teen Titans,.....GO!!!!
Wow! That was a quick 1000+ views! Thank you all!!!
