I honestly know next to nothing about the character OMAC. Joel gave me this character to redesign. Here is what he had to say:
Jesse has a classic style, who better to tackle this classic kirby character.
So I pulled up Wikipedia and started reading. Really the only thing I knew was the dude had a mohawk. I didn’t even know OMAC stood for One-MAn Army Corps. Maybe I should start reading comics.
So with the military in mind I tackled OMAC. First thing to go was the spandex. I knew I wanted to keep the mohawk somehow. My first sketch was like a military war machine, Iron Man style but with a mohawk. Then I saw there was a version done recently that was basically a robot like Iron Man. So I scrapped that.
My next thought was military. I googled some military uniforms, then swat uniforms and that is what I went with. Gave him a faux-hawk. I wanted to stay true to the color scheme (a little) and gave him red pants but put the camo texture on it. So he is basically more of a military man like his name suggests.
Next week is the final week where I get to choose a character myself. What should I pick?
Hope you dug my redesigns.
