Fantastic Four: Fashion Forward Final!

Hey Guys! Thank you to everyone who contributed their suggestions towards my entry for Project Rooftop's Fantastic Four: Fashion Forward contest. So low and behold, here is my new look for Marvel's Cosmic Quartet:

A big thank you goes out to Brian Kane for his invaluable suggestion about altering the logo. I was quite proud of my design which used the letter "F" turned on its side to create the number "4" as well, but his  recommendation of intersecting the two, opened all sorts of possibilities with positive and negative space, not to mention made the whole thing more compact. Not to mention it kind of looks like a cross between the Facebook "F" (with the white character in a blue box) and the Apple Logo with a piece removed from the whole and repositioned on top.

This was a lot of fun for me, and hope you enjoy as well.

Yes. I can illustrate for you. I'm a traditional illustrator and can help you achieve your goals through art. Learn how to work with me at 


  1. Awesome! I am a big fan of how you handled the logo. Very clever! Those cool little parallels so often used in logos don't come naturally to me... mind if I ask how long it took you to flip the F to make 4?

    Anyway I like the clean presentation and drawing style. However, the Human Torch's head does kind of stick out because it's a different rendering style than the others. I see why it has more values (fire light) but the lack of black outline seems odd.

    (Also since it's sort of a fashion design, for some reason I'm expecting that exaggerated leg length look, whereas the body types are a lot more realistic here. It's an arbitrary decision though.)

    All in all, I wish you the best of luck in the contest!

  2. I sketched up a full page of possible logos, a couple of which were similar to one I used for the final, but I was still using a slanted "4" on the figure sketches for about two weeks before I settled on one that used parallels.

    I agree that not having a dark outline on the back of the Torch's head looks odd. I was experimenting with Photoshop, to see if I could color my lines without all of them needing to be black, and maybe got a bit overzealous. At least I learned something new.


  3. I want to send you and Becca a lucky loonie from Canada - can I have your mail addy sent to me. -
