Second design for Deathlok on the TV show, Agent of Shield. *This is
just fan art! I obviously didn't good too crazy with the design.
Holding true to the style of the TV show by keeping most of the costume
real world items.
As it turns out, his face plate is under his
skin which was established in one of the episode. So, for this version,
I imagine he would get into a fight and his left side of his face
scrapped up to expose the metal underneath. The design is still TV
budget sensitive (instead of spending the money on a CGI leg), I would
spend it on the face makeup and a new vest. Other then that, I'll reuse
what is already made like the gauntlet and the rest of the costume is
basic tactical military gear. Silver rings around the arm and leg hint
at the cyborg implants.
"Thank you" to the doctor and nurses that took care of my mom last week... and to Yuan Tan (Cantonese interpreter) for talking with my mom and help ease the tension, while she waited for op. The littlest thing made a huge impact for her.
If anyone going to Emerald City ComiCon this weekend in Seattle, stop by
Top Cow's booth. I'll be signing my book Shotgun Wedding, along with
William Harms (writer) at Friday 12pm -2pm and Saturday 2pm-4pm. I
might also be in the panel at Top Cow panel, Sat. at 11am. Come by and
say "hi" if you are there.
FYI... this is actually the original pitch cover to Top Cow. I'm glad it'll see print at the very least at ECCC.
I saw the new Shield (TV show) version of Deathlok (bottom left) and was not satisfied
with the design. I totally
understand this is a TV show and it doesn't have a crazy budget to
invest into a side character, still it could have more resemblance to
the original source material without going over budget.
take is to use about the same amount of material
and details. For about the same cost (imo), I went with a vest design to be more in line with the comic character. Instead
of showing the mech arms and leg (which is expensive CG), I use
silver/metallic trim to hint at the cyborg implant underneath the
clothes. The face plate I feel is critical part/look of Deathlok, which
I feel should be part of the final design. Okay, the face plate is
extra cost and not ideal to hide J. August Richards face... but it could
also come off doing the non-combat moment, right? It wouldn't hurt to give
him a gun either.
Below is photo from Shield TV show (left) and the comic version (right) for comparison.
It's possible that the show will continue to evolve the character to be more like the comic version. We'll just wait and see.
Hey everyone! Beeling Cool just broke the news about my comic project with William Harms (published by Top Cow).... Shotgun Wedding! The four issue story will be out in April next year. The cool thing is, it will be release weekly! So if you dig the first issue and want more... well, next issue will be in the store the following week.
As you may have noticed, I have not been updating this blog for months now. The reason is, I'm crazy busy with a comic project with writer, William Harms. If I keep up the pace, I hope to finish this project by fall. So please be patience with me. Here's a sneak peek at 2 panels. As it get closer to launch, I'll be able to share more!
In the meantime, I'll try to post as often as I can.
