REMAKE: Aquaman for HBO by PaulSizer REMAKE: Aquaman for HBO by PaulSizer
This week's REMAKE challenge from Warren Ellis.
Here's the brief:
"So we here at Whitechapel were going to be involved in a multiple-website remake/remodel-Project-Rooftop type thing for Aquaman. For some reason, this didn't pan out the way it was supposed to. Possibly I lost track of things, I don't know.

But the idea still amuses me. However, I think it needs that extra little twist.

So your INSTRUCTIONS are:

Design a publicity poster for an adaptation of the DC Comics property AQUAMAN -- for HBO. HBO is the home of DEADWOOD, THE WIRE, THE SOPRANOS, ROME, BOARDWALK EMPIRE, you know the score... and therefore you know their stable of showrunners, people like David Simon and David Milch... and the sort of material they do.

The HBO version of AQUAMAN.

That's it. You have one week. Begin."


I may have gone to "pretty boy" for HBO; this may be a better pitch for Showtime or Cinemax.

Pencils/Inks: MangaStudio EX 3.0
Colors/FX: PhotoShop CS2
Type: Freehand MX

HBO Logo is İHome Box Office

I don't know, makes 'em look GAY...
I mean, yeah all the male superheroes with Boy Wonders got accused of it but really...


Myself I like the "Brave and Bold" version where he's essentially "Ned Flanders" to Batman. Batman seems to think he's silly but he's really envious; "Yes you could have a family, be popular and still fight crime. You just wallow in your guilt/hate/vengeance/self misery and that's why..."

Sure, that's part of my idea. Making him a bit TOO good looking, hook in the female audience as well! : )

I'm just gonna shake off the shock that Warren Ellis gave you a challenge.
*sits in a corner*

I'm sorry, it's gorgeous, but my teenage humor keeps gravitating to how bright the orange is down there.

He doesn't give the challenge just to me, it's for everyone on his forums.
And yes, you know the old saying...."The brighter the orange...." uh, I forget the rest. : )

I don't really think it's too pretty-boyish. Also, I love the 3/4th of the world line. XD

"Blood isn't always thicker than water" made me laugh. This is very funny...and also kinda cool. He's certainly pretty, and I like the nautilus shoulder bit.
