ART CHALLENGE 1

ALL ELIGIBLE ENTRIES HAVE BEEN SUMITTED. VOTING HAS BEGUN.

Full details here. This is the official thread for ART CHALLENGE 1.
The SWAT Kats Revolution has begun, but it’s been over 20 years since SWAT Kats first aired. A lot of time has passed, and with that, styles, trends, ‘what’s cool’ and a whole host of other factors have changed. From a 2016 perspective, your challenge is to redesign or portray a canon character how you think they would appear in a contemporary setting (i.e. how they would look on television today or how they would look ‘modernized’). The character can be a protagonist or villain character. The minimum amount of canon characters is one, and if you’re feeling generous, you can have more than one redesigned character in the image/scene.

The deadline is set for March 28, 2016 at 9:00 am PST. You can post your art to this thread at any time before that. Good luck!

This thread can also be used to discuss the challenge, talk about ideas related to it should you wish to, clear up any questions, post art progress if you wish, or to announce your participation (optional, not required), or to coordinate/request a collaboration.

I'm having a hard enough time just catching up with everything fandom-wise, so maybe sometime in the future?

I'd love to participate, but I have a trip to Florida I need to prepare and plan out, so not this time, sadly. Maybe next challenge I'll be able to join! c:

Okie, I'll post my pic. It ended up being a lot more detailed, then I meant for it to be. Also, there was suppose to be a Creepling getting zapped at the bottom..... but I didn't like how my Creepling turned out. So I added in an OC. Anyways, Hard Drive was always my favorite character, even though he doesn't have too many episodes. Sooo to upgrade him. I made him look a bit more techie. Also I shortened his Surge Coat... as I remember the 90's had this big thing for long trench coats... its not much of a thing now (at least I don't think it is XD ). Added some gloves and a pair of goggles to him... Gave him a bit of shaggy hair on each side of his hawk.

That's really cool :D Really like your style, it comes through in the color choice and shading quite nicely. For those of us who don't know, who's the OC and why does Hard Drive seem to not be on the greatest of terms with him?

As for his redesign, not sure if describing him as "fitting in today" would be the right choice of words :lol: But, the contemporary elements make sense.

Thanks. The OC'c name is Flicker and in my world, he is a SWAT Kat that has electrical powers as well. When Flicker aka Kevin was a kit, there was an incident where Hard Drive had stolen some katalyst formula for Dark Kat and was being pursued by Enforcers. Kevin was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got zapped by Hard Drive's current as well as being exposed to the Katalyst formula... And with the grace of cartoons, mutated him into having electrical powers. With the question at hand for this image. I have imagined that Hard Drive had kept an eye on the kit.... even offered to train him, but Kevin is a good guy in his heart and refused any offers from HD. Which HD takes offense too... since he feels Flicker wouldn't have those powers without him.

LOL. You are right that he more then likely doesn't fit in today. But had fun drawing this up anyways X3

Poe you're design for HD is just HOT! (as in cool.... oh you know what I mean). I think my favorite parts are the goggles and the lit microchips in his shoulder armor. He really is a cool looking antagonist and you just ramped it up.

Nothing too detailed with mine:
