REDESIGN: CYCLOPS by Toks-S REDESIGN: CYCLOPS by Toks-S
When ever I think of cyclops I always think of Jim lee's version so the current version looks weird to me, it's not bad it just doesn't feel like cyclops to me. This is what came out when I set about designing my own version of the x-men team leader.

Scott seems like the type of guy that would take his role as leader very seriously. The X-men find themselves fighting for their lives almost daily and as a result I think Scott would study military tactics and deployment and so I made his uniform reflect that.

I tried to stick to the blue and yellow colour scheme where I could, I gave him a flak jacket providing protection for his vital organs and made his suit a bit more protection based in general.
I gave him a utility belt of sorts as the x teams are often deployed all over the world and the belt gives him the ability to carry medicine, food, water, communications, tracking devices and many more helpful items, which would prove indispensable on missions.

any whoo, I hope you dig it

Cool Job:D (Big Grin)  I imagine that for "Star Wars Rebels" THIS is exactly the type of Rebel Alliance field commander they need...HIS type;) (Wink)

Awesome job on him. This is how the New X-Men uniforms should've been for either All-New X-Men or Uncanny X-Men :D

Hah, that's so weird, I did a similar design when doing my concepts for Cyclops and Wolverine RE the bulletproof vest and padding. Very cool, great concept =)

I love this, super-heroes costumes are flashy and pretty, but deep down there is always this voice that tells me "how can they survive battles while wearing these things?". Not the case of your redesigns, bravo.

I love Hero uniforms but like you I find myself thinking these guys/girls are really intelligent why wouldn't they protect themselves better.
These redesigns were my attempt to address this issue (not that I think every hero should wear body armour but I thought the idea lent it'self well to the X-men). I'm glad you dig them.

Thanks

I like all the solo pics but this one is outstanding. The colours and shading especially from his optic blast and the details on the uniform are just eXcellent.

this looks nice...if a little barebones. i feel like it needs a little more color. But with a little more, it would be perfect. Also, i kind of miss the Cyclops cowl.

What do you use to draw? your lines are so clean

I use a mechanical pencil to draw (0.5 lead) and everything else is done in Photoshop.

hope this helps.

hmm..so you ink in photoshop? my problems usually start when I scan my work.. thats where I notice the jagged lines..

Toks-S Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Professional Artist
Yeah, I ink in Photoshop. The reason I ink in photoshop is I used to spend so much time cleaning up my line work that I found it was quicker and easier to just do it all digitally.
I also always work bigger than the final image size and shrink it when I finish.

oh wow, this is brilliant! i love realistic costumes...so when the women (especially women who aren't invulnerable) are running around in bathing suits, i get just a bit perturbed. anyway, excellent redesign...well done!
