So during the same conversation that I mentioned in the last post, I began wondering how I would redesign one of the greatest villains over at Marvel.
(we were talking about comic villains if you haven't noticed)
Doom as a character is singlehandedly one of my favourite villains, because at his core he is so not a villain.
Like magneto, he is a man doing what he thinks is what is for the greater good for himself and his country, his methods can just be villainous and often times ruthless.
At his heart, he is a man that can ally with you, as long as your needs are aligned.
Doom has some of the single most iconic design elements of all comic characters, so I really wanted to keep it.
I just hate the medieval armour look to him, cause it's extremely campy and dated.
I wanted to keep the sort of medieval vibe, but make him far less clunky and more regal.
