Hey, Project: Rooftop are doing another Fan-art Friday!
Considering my track record - my fan-art redesigns have successfully made it on to their site every time I've submitted for such an event - I decided to have another go.
This time, as you'll have seen in the link, the subject is Thor.
As usual, I've taken this as an opportunity to re-imagine the Odinson as much as redesign his costume. I always fancied the concept of Thor being less human-looking, and much more otherworldly. As someone who is mistaken for a god of thunder here on Earth, I thought it'd be cool if the Asgardians were all beings made up of pure energy. My Thor would essentially be a living lightning bolt, who assumes a humanoid form when visiting Earth. I didn't want to make his outfit overtly nordic, and tried to put in a lot of different cultures' design elements, suggesting that maybe even Zeus, Raijin and other Thunder God figures in mythology were more or less inspired by him.
So there you have it. As usual, please feel free to post a comment in the box below (seriously do it, these masked men are getting awfully pushy!).
Thanks for reading,
