Drawing for Myself – Thirsty, Knox, and Gibson Re-Imagined

Time to move on to the boy heroes of The Front: Rebirth. Let’s see what Thirsty, Knox, and Gibson look like in the style I’ve been using for the Masters of the Universe re-imaginings:

Here they are as a group. Let’s look at each of them individually:

Thirsty might smile a little less.

Knox might get a tad more angular.

Gibson would get shorter and rounder.

Man, am I already halfway done with this series? I have to say, I’m having an absolute blast with it, and am already wondering whether or not a new story in this style is a good idea. It’s been so darned long since I’ve worked on a story with these characters, I’m sure not many people would mind if I did try some full-color adventures with these guys in this style. Sure haven’t heard any objections yet.

Anyway, here’s a list of the re-imaginings I’ve done so far:

  1. I like this new direction for the guys! They come off as a bit younger and individualistic this way. Of course, some of that could be the color, but overall I like these designs a little better than the originals (which were still great, by the way).

    You may have inspired me to take up a similar project I had in mind for some lesser-known Saturday morning characters (like Marshal Bravestarr and the like). But 30 characters and 30 classes come first!

    Thanks again for always sharing and inspiring.

      Thanks for the kind words. I’m really digging them, too, and I’m seriously considering doing my next Front book in this style.

      And I think a Bravestarr re-imagining series would be fantastic! Now you got me waiting for December!
