Green Lantern. Manhunter design.collab by Chuckdee Green Lantern. Manhunter design.collab by Chuckdee
Here's another collaboration between good friend (and fellow Deviant) Ed Nunez and Moi.... this was done for a "Green Lantern" game (Rise of the Manhunters)... as I said on previous collaborations I've posted (done by Ed and I); it's hard to see who did what, since we worked on quite a few of these together, and we developed a really good synergy.

The initial heavy-lifting of this one HAD to be Ed... he's got an AWESOME knack for big-powerful shapes. He'd often rough something down, then I'd go over tweak things, then define the more 'techy' stuff.

This was an awesome way to work because it allowed me to work in different gears and using shapes which I might not have though of using initially, so it's a really fun challenge AND keeps things fresh and creative (after designing a GAZILLION characters, things can get stale if you're not careful)

The final color rendering was me, BUT the initial heavy-lifting credit DEFINITELY goes to Ed! I miss doing these damn collaborations! :)

thanks Kelsey! :) ... altho a nice chunk of the credit goes to my good friend Ed Nunez (he's here on Deviant too), we'd usually work on these together, but the initial 'shapes' on this one are definitely Ed's! :)

Better than most man hunter designs though i always feel the colors should be more subdued. I guess I feel the colors never fully mixed when I see them. Since they are antagonistic I would think they should be darker maybe black and green to sort of hint to the lantern colors but then when you think they were first created by the Gaurdians of the Universe they wear red, green and white so that would be a better approach, perhaps opt out blue and exchange it for white and see how that looks.

it did get a bit bright... heheh, I have a habit of saturating things :) ... those are always easy things to fix though, and I think at this point, we had already done a few ManHunters and this is the palette the game developers were going for. :)

I allways thought the Manhunters needed a more mechanical look... it's great to see that idea realized here! Awesome design, and full of detail as allways!
