EDIT: If anyone's interested, the original page for this Project Rooftop submission can be purchased over at my art dealer's: [link]

Here is one of my colored versions. Even though I picked the colors before starting the inks, I still had a ton of different color schemes before hand. I settled on this one, because it remains different from the typical Blue only colors of the original, while adding some contrasting colors. I dunno. I ended up liking it. Should have spent more time on it but stuffs gotta get handed in you knows?

I have NEVER and I mean EVER liked a single FF4 costume design...but I can no longer say that. Love this.

Cool re-conceptualization.  The Thing really popped and I like the variations in the costume theme.

i like it, but i like the original thing best. can you do the thing when he had the stegosaurus spikes on his back? if you remember that mutation?

Love your version of Thing! Much better than original.
steel-worker Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
Everything looks great,but,obviously,the most impact comes from your versions of Richards and the thing.AwesomeĦ
beast79 Featured By Owner May 14, 2013
I dig this. Bearded Reed does throw me for a loop but pushing the Thing that far towards monster territory is cool. Also that color palette and the costume design is so different its amazingly refreshing. Plus very patriotic.
ziza9 Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
I love the redesigns here. It really brings the FF into the NOW. I would love to read a book with the characters sporting these looks. Great job.

I love the Thing's design. I would've replaced the red with light blue, though.

This Ben Grimm design is inspired!
You're not hiding all of that under a trench coat and a fedora.

DomEddi Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Amazing! I love the Thing's style, so original!
gph-artist Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
This is fabulous! The redesign is genius in every way. I love the slick, modern costumes (I don't even mind the change-up of the standard colors, hell, if you're gonna re-imagine, go all the way!). Your art is slick, the anatomy is wonderful. Thing is amazing.
mcguan Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012
Holy crap, your take on The Thing is amazing!
kiddoblivion Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
That's something I've never understood, why do people always portray Reed Richards as an awkward, scrawny geek, when the character was created as Marvel's answer to Doc Savage, a handsome genius adventurer.

None of Kirby's depictions of him ever suggested that he wore glasses or was scrawny, he was portrayed as the epitome of male perfection.

Regardless, you're designs are brilliant and this image as a whole is amazing. Love everything about it...even Reed's pencil neck. ;)

Reed's receding hairline, Sue's lipstick, Johnny's tattoo, Ben's uneven limbs - I love the tiny hints of the characters in those details.

I was about to say the only thing I'm not a fan of is the relatively plain four circles logo, and believe me that's a minor element compared to the uniqueness of the overall designs, but it totally works as a callback to Kirby's later costume designs. I'm not sure if that was your intention, but well played nonetheless.

This is probably going to end up being one of my favs. I like the character redesigns more than the costume redesigns though. The Thing is especially good. Could just be the orange, if the oranges were blacks it's be easier to accept, but the whole point tis to re-imagine them, so it's cool you changed their colors up a bit.

love this different take on the fantastic four, you really make these characters your own in this piece , never seen them portrayed this way, especially the thing. I really like the look of the thing kind of reminds me of the stone character from the neverending story a tiny bit, kind of nostalgic in a way. really awesome job, keep up the amazing work.

they're a little "busy" but still great designs
JakeEkiss Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
I'm glad now I didn't have time for this challenge. I can guarantee I'm not bringing anything better to the table than this. Well done!
themscarecrows Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Professional General Artist
This is amazing and makes me want to read a Fantastic Four comic if it were drawn like this. Awesome work! I really like your inks and colors. And designs. Bleh, I like it all. :)
