    Wow, that is nice. I didn't really look at the prizes, I just like doing this sort of thing and seeing what other people come up with.

    I always love seeing what people come up with in these big "Draw [x]" memes. Makes me wish Project Rooftop had more frequent updates.

    I wish the non project rooftop memes were a little bit more organized

    I'll try to do this, but I probably won't come up with anything.

    Project Rooftop is weird. Sometimes they pick awesome stuff (that Nick Fury and Black Widow picture), but sometimes they pick stuff like that Connor Hawke one which is really weird and doesn't work at all

    A lot of the designers get too creative with their designs.

    DMAC, give him lots of belts and pouches. Trust me... belts and pouches are the spirit fingers of comics!

    Hey, now we have to work out joint custody of that awesome statue we are going to win as a team.

    Cyborg

    Speaking of characters that need a drastic overhaul. I've yet to see a redesign that make Cyborg look like a credible superhero and not some weird white leather fetishist.

    I like the one on Project Rooftop, but I agree with them about the weird things on his head and thighs. I also think it looks too much like a suit and not a cybernetic body.

    I think what always bothers me about Cyborg's look is his half-metal face. I don't know why, it just never really looks right. I think the obsessive compulsive side of me is subconsciously bothered by the asymmetry.

    I'd really like to see him just rebuilt from the ground up. New color scheme, new body, new everything. I'd kind of like to see something similar to this. Or maybe just plunk him in some kind of Iron Man like suit. I think the worst thing about Cyborg's costume is that he never really looks like a cyborg. He just looks like a big dude with metal hands and a halfro in white spandex.

    I liked the Cyborg redesign from Kingdom Come. Going T-1000 makes sense from a technological standpoint.

    Why does DC have so many terrible artists on their best books? Most of their top-tier stuff looks it's being drawn by Top Cow/Aspen rejects. Meanwhile they have a bunch of incredibly talented guys slumming at Wildstorm and various low-tier books. Couldn't they have persuaded Neil Googe, Doug Mahnke, or Chris Sprouse to help launch this book? I mean, these are some of their most famous non-Trinity heroes, and they're being drawn by someone who can't seem to work out how a neck is supposed to look.

    Man that Titans or whatever art is damn near the worst thing I have seen in a long time. Poor Cyborg.

    I think there could be some really amazing stuff come out of this Iron Man thingy. The Powergirl, Supergirl, Batgirl... Spoiler? redesign contests were amazing.

    Look at the artist's signature in the lower right. That's how you know he's a student of the 90's.

    Is that Churchill on that cover??? He may have drawn some of the skinniest wrists I've ever seen on Supergirl but he can do better than that. His art in the Titans East one-shot was actually really good.

    To be fair, Poison Ivy with ankle-length hair would be pretty hot.

    Although that wasn't the longest hair I had ever seen. I just picked up Wonder Woman: Challenge of Artemis trade out of a bargain bin because it seemed interesting. It was a fun read but Artemis' ponytail wrapped in loops around both her legs near the bottom.
