Art Inspiration: Heroes vs. Villains – John 181


As part of the final assignment in my resent drawing club, I had the students create their own hero or villain. Their characters had to have up to 2 powers/abilities; a unique name and they had to indicate if they were either a hero or villain. The students also wanted me to redraw their character, in the comic book style, once they had handed their original in. I needed the original as a reference and I wanted them to do the work. The variety I received was amazing and it inspired me to create a wide range of characters.

I began with my version of the villain’s leader and in the next few weeks I will post the student’s original character and my version that I gave to them.


Villain 05 – John 181

Some students modeled their character after popular comics they are used to, this student had his own idea matched with something he was use to. He wanted a character that was a bit of a cross with the Flash and Iron Man, yet he wanted a unique helmet and exoskeleton. He came to me for some ideas on the helmet and I gave a few ideas on the exoskeleton. He modeled it a bit from the storm troopers from Star Wars and football equipment.

I took the students’ image and the questions he asked about the armour and took it from there. It is very similar to the storm troopers armour with a few comparisons to Ironman’s suit. He wasn’t too particular with the colour but I decided on a blue base so that it was different from Ironman.

I showed the student his character and he was happy by saying that it looked cool; high praise indeed. I hope you enjoy the fifth character from Heroes VS. Villains – John 181.
