At first I thought about being cheeky and just drawing my version of MadKat as I had him formed and ready to go. Buuuuut I felt that was not in the spirit of the thing, so got to pondering and ended up with this.
I thought about redesigning Dark Kat, http://www.fmstudiosamvs.co.uk/yang/Dar ... plings.jpg
which was a lot of fun ^^ I always felt with him, he should be as imposing as physically possible. While the canon of robes was a look that an Overlord could wear ((An Overlord can wear what they jolly well like. You don't get the OverLord status by listening to what lesser mortals think of you
)) I felt the robe look suited the troll wizard PastMaster better. So I went for the demonic DreadKnight look which also meant I could explain the off looking nose DK always had by just hiding it. I thought about covering the hands in armor too but I wanted to make sure people knew there was also a kat still in there, rather than a bunch of creeplings tapped together.
I also felt like putting armor on his Creeplings to work with the theme, although the creeplings I don't think they fully understand the concept of armor. ^^
However I then saw a much superior idea for Dark Kat's redesign and I moved focus on to the crystal chaos-causing criminal Rex Shard. http://www.fmstudiosamvs.co.uk/yang/RexShard.jpg
Watching the show, Rex' transformation was far too clean and clear for something as random as growing crystals. So I went for more of a "body horror" approuch to the process, as to have your body form and crack and be pieced by crystals should not be a fun time. I saw him to be more of a pained character in the reboot, like he didn't want this power given to him by the accident at first. Spending his first episode turning kats in to crystal as he looked for someone to cure him. However at the end of the episode he would be locked up in the science labs of Pymadyne, still in his half crystal form. Subsequent episodes maybe coming to terms with his powers, maybe an evil kat could convince him to embrace his new life as a super villain.
I also added the "DOC" to show how he is a convict with the Department Of Corrections and just to give his actual clothes a bit more flare.
With Rex now my focus, I was planning to post just him and the poor guard he was transforming however it was a shame to no longer post the Dark Kat. A friend of mine convinced me to try and combine the pictures and after strugging with a way to combo the two, I decided to go meta and have them backstage getting ready to shoot the reboot ^^ I was gonna have a joke where Dark Kat tried to console Rex by saying at least he still looks better than Morbulus only to reveal the guy's rebooted self is no longer a giant bacteria and having a cool new look X3
The Posters are two old works of mine that I thought worked for studio posters. It also includes my version of MadKat there... That Kat always has a habit of showing up where I don't expect him.
