The Blue Beetle redesigns

Reference sheet example

Blue Beetle redesign initial iterations

Second phase of redesign iterations

Blue Beetles vehicle
Here is my initial reference gathering and subsequent concepts for a redesign of a comic book character called 'The Blue Beetle' as well as the initial vehicle redesigns. For the initial design I was not sure which direction to go in, as such I tried to keep the concepts fairly varied. My tutors and classmates all agreed that the first design was the strongest to expand upon, as such I went with that design for my second iterations of the character.

My goal was to keep the silhouette and beetle like feel of the design, whilst experiment with different patterns and suggesting other materials. I have not decided which direction works best yet however I personally like the designs of numbers 6 and 12 which I feel match the required beetle like design but also feel more intimidating as costumes which I feel a vigilantly hero would aim for.

As for the vehicle I am leaning towards the top right hand corner helicopter/jet like vehicle and possibly the bottom right hand corner design as I feel both fit the character well. The first option I feel is a more practical and modern take on a design for a heroes mode of transport, whereas the next option is more beetle like in appearence as such it is more litteral to the brief. Id prefer the first option personally with the second option as a compromise to fit more to the brief.

I will continue these designs upon further feedback from my tutor.
