    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    HOWEVER: I will allow the use of or interpolation of ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS into the work.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.

    So here's the deal:

    You are an artist/designer. You have to put together the cover for a comic called THE FANTASTIC FOUR. It is issue 1 of this book.

    You have been told that the comic is about four people who steal a spaceship, fly into space, get heavily irradiated by cosmic rays, and return to earth weirdly altered by their experience.

    And that's it. The bastards haven't told you one more damn thing than that. Not a clue. They might all be women. It might be about the Indian space programme twenty years from now. For all you know this is a JG Ballard story, for christ's sake...

    It's up to you what kind of company you're at. What kind of comics you make. How you translate that description of The Fantastic Four. What era you're in. Who you are, even. Go nuts with it.

    You have one week. Go.

    Thanks, Warren, this thread will be insane.

    I think I may post my second piece of "art" in three years on this forum in this thread.

    Watch out, Rooftop. Here's where Whitechapel will give you a serious run for the "out there" content!

    There was absolutely no way I could sleep without doing this.


    Energy entity discovers new friend in low Earth orbit. Energy entity greets friend in the universal language of Total Decomposition. Energy entity discovers, to its horror, that its new friend is not in any way equipped to handle Total Decomposition, being composed of many confusing and conflicting parts, some of which seem to have (screaming) minds of their own. Energy entity has a think, decides to put it back to together as best it can, then buggers right off before anybody discovers what it's done.

    Left to right, we have: Astronaut made of bits of an experimental shield generator. Astronaut made of ablative heat shielding. Astronaut made of booster rockets. Finally, at the bottom, an astronaut made of pure intellect wrapped in scrotum skin.

    Edit: thought a bit of colour might be a nice change.

    @struthersneil - Disturbingly awesome.

    Ha! "wrapped in scrotum skin". Love it.

    It's like a much creepier take on The Venture Bros. take on the FF.

    By interesting coincidence, I'm reading through a collection of the first dozen or so Fantastic Four issues. I really look forward to the entries.

    I see what you did there. "wrapped in scrotum..." - Fantastic Foreskin! Love it.

    @struthersneil: Space Shuttle with teeth is now the scariest thing in the world to me. Yikes.

    In a sense, haven't we already seen Warren's solution to this REMAKE in "Planetary"?

    And in "Ruins". Everyone loves a bit of "Ruins" right?

    My first entry in such a thread.

    Fantastic Four #1

    Unclear about whether the Fantastic Four are the creatures on the planes or the fleas on the 'F'.

    Oh, and now its colored, too!

    I really like the slight Mignola look you gave the Thing. Its mostly in the nose, I think, but its there - and its really nice!

    @struthersneil - Colors: EVEN. BETTER.

    I'm probably doing this wrong.
