    Indigo Beetle

    Indigo Beetle is Danny Garret, grandson of the original Blue Beetle and has inherited some of his grandfathers powers (super strength and healing abilities, increased speed, heightened senses, and enhanced intellectual capacity), but like his gramps he also uses sophisticated technology to fight crime.

    Indigo Beetle is based on the public domain character Blue Beetle (Fox Features): http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Blue_Beetle_(Fox)

    And here’s his gramps:
    Blue Beetle
    The original Blue Beetle was Dan Garret (note the spelling with only one t!) – a rookie police officer who wore a special bulletproof costume and used a gun as well as various technical gadgets such as a wrist-mounted mini-radio, a “Beetle Signal” flashlight, a “BeetleMobile” car and a “BeetleBird” airplane. He later gained super powers such as super strength and healing abilities, increased speed, heightened senses, and enhanced intellectual capacity from the secret experimental “vitamin 2X”.

    The orginal Blue Beetle (Fox Features) is a public domain character: http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Blue_Beetle_(Fox)

     

    Note: Not to be confused with the Charlton Version of the Blue Beetle, who was Dan Garrett (with 2 t’s) – an archaeologist who discovered an ancient magical blue scarab that gave him super strength, flight, and the ability to shoot lightning bolts.

    Your Public Domain Character redesigns/updates are awesome, I wish I had the skill you do. Mine look amateurish by comparison.

    Thanks a lot! But I really don’t think that your work is all too “amateurish” – I for one like it. 😉

    If you look at my characters from when I first posted here (almost exactly 3 years ago), you can see that they didn’t look much different to yours.

    I may have improvd a lot since then by just experimenting with items, but I still struggle with fancy poses and it took me what felt like ages to get a grip on “zypping”. Alas, there are still many guys/gals here whose greatness I’ll probably never achieve – just look at DJubys last masterpiece. *sigh*

    As regarding the topic “design”: I get a lot of inspiration by browsing through other peoples artwork over at DeviantArt and of course from the works of my fellow ‘machiners. 😀

    Anyways …

    yeah I find DA inspirational when I’m in a rut too.

    That said, I would LOVE to see what you could do with my latest creation Purple Heart as I think it doesn’t do justice to the inspiration and I am stuck – maybe as a trade with my version of one of your chosen characters?

    Something like that? 😉

     

    Purple Heart

    He’d be doing well as an antagonist to a group of mercenaries/ex-military/militia guys I was recently working on … 🙂
