The Black Terror of Earth X by TomKellyART The Black Terror of Earth X by TomKellyART
hey all this is a Black Terror redesign I did for Project roof top. FYI the Black terror is an Old golden age comic book character. The Black Terror was a pharmacist/chemist who using science discovered a formula to make him super human ( basically,stronger,fast,tougher, similar to a Captain America type of hero). The character's main look was a skin tight all black uniform,a domino face mask, a cape, and a poison symbol (skull and crossbones) on his chest 
       So for my take on this classic character is that I went with a very streamlined  outfit, Back terror Still has the skull and cross bones on his chest but I made it more stylized. Also instead of the domino mask I gave him more of a ski mask/bandana type face mask that covers him up to his eyes.  I added the skull jaw on the mask to replicate the effect some bikers have on there face masks as they ride. I kept his color palette black and white. Also I gave him a smoke effect the his suit gives off to make him more spooky and menacing. Since his back story is that of a batman meets superman sort of character who was given powers from the chemicals he uses as a pharmacist, I thought he would make use of smoke bombs and other chemical devices to intimidate his foes. 
     The Black Terror has black gloves and a jet black Axe. The Axe styled off a fire Axe because those type of Axes are both fire fighting tools as well as a kind of weapon that is both menacing and very uses full.

If you get a chance pop on over to project rooftop and check out all the cool art. here is a link:

I created this illustration using Illustrator CS6 for 90% and then Photoshop cs6 for the coloring and rendering effects.
