Sketch-A-Day fun with the DCnU 077-079
With these, I think Firestorm is the most divergent take.
It's funny how his costume is frequently referred to as "classic" and "goofy" in the same breath...and I agree with both. I opted to kind of remove the costume element, having him go shirtless and head-dress-less in order to emphasize his atomic chest symbol and flaming head. I see this atomic symbol as actual big electrons (if that makes sense) orbiting the nucleus on his chest...I think that imagery gets lost on the costume quite frequently. I also took away the head-dress because it always struck me as a chimney no matter how it was altered over the years.
Using his current armor idea, I decided to emphasize the seems with a darker blue and repeat the diamond shape throughout...a little cheesier than anticipated.
Pretty bland take on it. Just spinning off the current Wonder Woman look.
So there you go.
