Vic by Ironshod Vic by Ironshod
I've always loved Vic and I think this darker design will bring him kicking and screaming into the present. My hope is that these leather straps, nails and studs give an edgy slightly bondage feel and add to the exsisting character without deviating too much from the original image and spirit. By keeping the image as a simple head shot I have tried to creat maximun impact and focus on the character itself. I hope this would look cool on a cd as I think simple striking images tend to stand out better on the shelves of a record shop than more complicated compositons that may only work on close inspection. I have also mocked this up on a t-shirt (see other submissions) which I hope would make for cool merchandise. I'd love to do Vic in this guise complete with straight jacket and padded cell.

woah! thts really cool, an i love megadeth. best thing metallica did was get rid of mustane, or hed never have made megadeth... but then again mustaine an ulrich cudda written some amazing songs together, an hammet wud have ahd to form a different band, but they might have been let down by lack of songwriters... an im rambling now. anyway, this is highly cool!

I did this art for a re-design Vic competetion here on DA, but I didn't win a prize :( Still it is how I got to hear about DA so it was a good thing :)

I think you didn't win cuz it's still rather too much like the original Vic...but this is very cool!

The ones that won were actually very like the the origianl Vic, which made me think that they weren't really wanting a re-design. Oh well.

Yai!! I really like this Vic. And, as you say, keeping the design simple helps a lot on focusing in the main idea. I think this would really work on a CD cover or T-shirt. Yeah!
As one single thing to enhance... I think the Megadeth logo could be a little more distinguishable. You know a little clearer edge or so. But it's amazing!

Yep, I know, but this is great, at least for me. You know, in contests someone decides and has his preferences, which doesn't mean others are not amazing.
