    Redesign #106: Ram Man!!!

    WELCOME ONE & ALL TO THE 106TH REDESIGN CHALLENGE !


    It's about time we take a shot at one of the oldest characters of the MOTU world:

    RAM MAN


    As an artist, I've personally always felt that Ram Man was one of the characters that really needed an upgraded look.
    He's an iconic character, well known to any MOTU fan, and has the potential to be one of the coolest heroes in the line.

    He's powerful, armor-clad, and super buff. He was even Teela's love interest for one episode of the original series!
    So, now its time to show the MOTU community what you think Ram Man should look like to do him justice;
    an appearance that truly demonstrates his true force in the battle between good and evil!

    Without any further ado, let redesign challenge #106 begin!!






    *Collages created by PYRE




    - You MUST make a unique change to the original appearance of the character in some way. This is a redesign challenge after all!

    - All artists who choose to participate will have 1.5 months to come up with a redesign for this character.

    -You can use ANY medium you wish! You can sketch, paint, make a 3-D model,
    render a sprite, create a custom action figure, whatever you want. Its entirely up to you!
    *Hero-machine entries are game!

    -You don't have to force yourself to make your design conform to the new OR OLD cartoon & comic book's style.
    Be as drastic in your redesign as you see fit. Whatever makes you happy! All that is required is that you add something ALL-NEW to the character's appearance,
    however big or small.

    -If you can't think of a new design, or just hate the idea of working on this character,
    you do not have to feel obligated to participate in this particular challenge.
    You will still be free to participate in any future challenges you wish.



    THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SEPTEMBER 15TH!!!



    GOOD LUCK!

    Glad to see you will be participating in the challenge bro! Looking forward to seeing what you do with this.
    Yeah, "improving" on a look you already like is definately a tough challenge. It,s true, ram man does have some awesome qualities to his gear, but there may be a few rough edges to work out...like those pants!! Lol.

    Nice Jafari! Glad to see the shoulder straps finally attaching to something. That used to drive me mad!

    And Zargon, excellent job, that's my plan A scrapped then :P

    This is going to be cool

    The poll is pretty tough for this one too... I'm in the middle of a NA redesign project anyway so Tuskador is an obvious vote.. but I do fancy drawing some pretty lady characters too and i've never drawn Evil Lyn...

    Looking awesome as always man! I was running back through the challenges to see the ones I've missed in the last few years and you've been smashing it!.

    In the spirit of sharing. here's my WIP. Not sure whether I'm gonna clean it up or just use it as a reference to create something more dynamic..

    Well I had an idea. What if Ram Man had...the Ram Stone?

    So I gave it to him.



    When he activates it he is covered in mystical green energy (somewhat resembling some kind of human-ram) that enables him to charge through any barrier; natural, man made or even magical

    I like your idea.

    I like your design but I personally would like to see his traditional helmet. would make it an even better design.

    Thanks guys!

    Zargon's reminds me of a 7th Kingdom Ram-Man, the 4H would be proud, great take! Seraphyn303 your armor is superb! I really very much like your design work here! Pyre's is full of character, looking like a modern update, & those feet are awesome! 3 Cheers!

    update* Wolfsfang, your entry wasn't showing up for me, but now it is, love the helmet & weapon!

    great job guys. I am sketching mine out as well. so many fun ones. Wolfy, i love yours!! the helmet thing seems redundant, so i would say leave the ram horns off of the first one, so that when he "powers up" it adds something to it!

    these are so fun, here comes mine!!!

You kicked my but on the Blastar Redesign! i dare you to do it again! lol. PS. thank you for the props brother. it means a lot.

    Zargon: Boy am i ever glad heromachine was ever created, and submissions were accepted into the redesign challenge. How cool is it to have ram man as...a ram!

    Wolfster: what can I say brother. i miss having you color my art, lol. You are getting so good! great job on your ram man design and the look of your work on this piece!

    I have to agree wolfster...or maybe even a hybrid helmet with ram horns attached like Seraphyns. Or mabe making a metal helmet shaped like a ram skull somehow? A great design we hope to improve...i think youll get more votes than me on this one

    Wolfsfang! Holy crap dude that's amazing! Your work has come on incredibly over the last few years.
    I actually think the helmet is awesome. Only problem might be (and this is the same problem my design has) that for a battering ram, the horns might lack strength (depending what they're made of, I'm only assuming it's bone but I might be wrong)

    As a design is so clean and beautiful though. Love it.

    Pyre, nice to see we had the same idea about mechanised knees plus the feet are a brilliant touch. Awesome stuff.

    Ok I compromised by giving him more of a traditional Ram Man helmet, but I kept the horns (cuz I like the horns )



    oh and for a added bonus, here is his energy shield without him
