Martian Mantunter Re-Redesign, digital painting.
I decided to take another look at a redesign I did 4-ish years ago. It was liked well enough, but what it got me thinking about how shape shifting in comics and cartoon tend to go with the blobby mass thing and how that rarely convinced me of how clothes came into appearance or how bone structure would even work.
Then it hit me that to make a Martian Manhunter work in the real world and what i came to was essentially the most highly advances and adaptive Cephalopod ever. He’d be like an octopus with a million string like tentacles all being able to merge,and change pigmentation or density at will.He could harden himself or make himself nearly intangible by loosening each and every one of it’s tentacles and fitting though something the size of a pin-hole.
He could transform to the point where he’s indistinguishable from a human, but in his superhero form He lets it hang a bit looser. Letting the millions of tentacles take the shape of a superhero costume, but not hiding it’s weirdness. The Mark on his forehead is his own reminder of the Red Planet he once knew as his home.
Just emailed my school about bringing a stick blender, since normal blenders aren’t allowed :/
The rest of my Justice League Redesign. I’ll put the write up here later. Enjoy!

"Wonder Woman really is a phenomenon unto herself, the show and the character really has a life of its’ own. She represented, uh, hope, I think, for young women, and she also represented for young men, mind you, which I get a lot of mail on, the type of, like the perfect woman, one that could be beautiful and smart and fun and strong."
