Aquaman by ColonelDake Aquaman by ColonelDake
This was made for the Project Rooftop: Sea Change contest where you redesign Aquaman's costume: [link]
For whatever reason, my email kept spitting out the attachment, and I didn't find this out until after the deadline... alas, such is the way of things. Disappointing, and this is the end of my relationship with my primary email, as this kind of nonsense is unacceptable.

The design isn't wholly revolutionary, and it was made more as an excuse to draw Aquaman-- the fact there was a costume contest going on was just icing on the cake.
Working on Mera was really, really fun. The fish weren't.

Love Mera and the baby in the corner with Black Manta lurking right behind them.

Thanks! Mera was my favorite part to work on, I'm glad someone's digging what's going down in the bottom left corner.

He looks like Captain Kirk with a trident. I demand more beard!

That's probably why Mera looks so pissy-- he shaved, and she misses the beard.

Woah, amazing colours and sense of texture! I adore how the hair and materials of the characters' clothes turned out, plus the lighting/shadows are perfectly picked. Pfft, the fish are fine, in my opinion those miniature background whales and dolphins have an almost 3D feel to them, they're so well defined. Great work! :clap:

Haha, thank you! I'm really happy with how the clothes came out, specifically the left glove. It was all done with a splatter brush, and it did me proud this time around.

You're welcome! I loved that glove best, too, along with another little detail - the creases on Black Manta's suit. They're just so awesomely realistic.
A splatter brush? It's very versatile use of it, then, it turned out fabulous! :clap:
