Black Widow Redesign by zacharyxbinks Black Widow Redesign by zacharyxbinks
Design I made for CBR Forums "Project CBRunway"

The challenge this time around was to create a "legacy character" for one of the Avengers. I was assigned Black Widow, and I think I did myself pretty good.

Basically, I asked myself what a new Black Widow would mean, and where her priorities would be in the sense of carrying on the mantel.

I figured that a new female hero on the field would mean a lot of proving ground to cover. She'd want to be taken seriously as a woman of skill, so gone are the plunging necklines and cleavage hanging everywhere. The way I drew it, I imagine this new Black Widow in a bio-suit; enhanced in all physical strengths and resistance. I also put a thermal jumpsuit over the whole thing, just to add another dimension of functionality.

...Yep.

Ooooh! Love it! I can see her wearing this. Kind of Deadpool style, but it has 'Black Widow' written all over it! Great job!

I see the mask of Deadpool on her torso. Was that intentional? Aha, either way, amazing work here!

Hmm. I like the idea, but the combination of lean face and chubby midsection doesn't quite mesh for me. And if she wants to be taken seriously, I'm not sure about the duck lips.

I'm really not trying to be snarky or insulting here; I'm saying you've got great individual aspects that don't seem to belong together, so I'm not getting the full impact of a single, unified character. If that mismatch is what you had in mind, that'd be an interesting character too, but then it wouldn't really match your description.

Sorry if I'm being a bummer here.

Apologetically,

--Nonie

This blew me away, it's fantastic! And I gotta say, I love your choice of giving her a more practical outfit that the usual pin-up costumes the girls always wear.

Luckily, I'm a bit of a perfectionist and keep trying out new ways to improve.

And anyway, from what I remember, you're no slouch
