Aquaman Redesign 1 by Grailee Aquaman Redesign 1 by Grailee
Project: Rooftop
Redesign Contest, Aquaman: Sea Change [link]

My Aquaman design is inspired by the high sea adventure pirate, the greek mythology and Peter David's run on the Aquaman series.
Peter David's run on the Aquaman series leaves a great impact of my impression of Aquaman.
Curry wears armour that comes from the sea creatures. Bones as the arm guard and exoskeleton of the prehistorical armored fish, dunkleosteus as his shoulder armour guard.
Curry's Weapon is transformable: between the Spear and Trident. Only when it becomes the Trident will the full power of the Weapon be unleashed.

why, why, why don't you work for DC?, this would be so much better than the V-neck redesign!

Ah ha, I see what you did there. You made his crown kind of like the Roman Wreath thing, but fish bones. Very clever. I also like what you did to his arm.

impressive redesign. I love his face, first off - which really had nothing to do with the redesign aspect, but like every piece of his armor, clothing, it tells a story of a fantastic adventurer. Again, amazing work.

Ever since Geoff Johns got his hands on Aquaman, he's quickly gone on to become one of my favourite DC heroes (to be fair, he is good at turning heroes I never personally cared for and making them all time favourites).

As for the re-design, this is awesome. I love the armour and trident, and the way you did his water hand is brilliant. I also like the pirate vibe you've gone for on his shirt and boots.

Geoff John's take on Arthur is very different from Peter David's. But its working out great! haha

Thank you. Glad you like the redesign. :)

I've only recently started following the character; I really liked Geoff's take during Brightest Day so it was a natural step for me to move to the new 52 series. I've not read any of Peter David's work; can you please give me some recommendations.

I would recommend Peter David's Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect and Young Justice besides Aquaman.

I have been meaning to read Young Justice. I really liked Superboy on Geoff John's Teen Titan run and I'm keen to see what he was like before that.

 You gotta try it. Its a book full of fun and adventure. Seeing Superboy, Robin and Impulse interact with each other is really entertaining.

Wow, I love the Dunkleosteus shoulder shield and the fish-skeleton "laurel wreath", plus the seashells on his boots are a nice touch!

that fossil fish head shoulder is da bomb, i think though you would win from using less colors and more different hues of a same color to gain more cohesion (the brown buckles just don't seem to belong...
