concept: The magical energy Strange wields becomes heavy from the taint of his soul, the now viscous magic discharges from his hands scars like sap from tree bark. It’s corrosive to the touch. It’s nature is like liquid tar.
Hey all! So I’ve been working on a lil’ project where I make a fake “pitch” for an animated series about my least favorite Marvel superhero, Dr. Strange, called…
For the main cast, I stuck with the main power players of the Strange-iverse. But also thought it would be fun to throw in some secondary heroes for funsies, like Kate Bishop and Iron Fist!
My reboot starts with world-renowned surgeon, Dr. Stephanie Zhang who is nicknamed “Dr. Strange” by her colleagues, who works in NYC. Years into her practice, she gets into a terrible car crash which renders her hands useless and she begins looking for a cure. After years of searching, she receives a mysterious message telling her of a temple in the Kunlun mountains in Tibet that hold the answer to her problems.
After making her journey there, she is introduced to Yao, the head of a small school of sorcery. She also finds two other students who have been called to the temple: Wong, a mercenary and expert martial artist from Taiwan, and Baroness Karla Ma, a noblewoman from Latveria. Yao informs the trio that they all possess the potential to become amazing sorceresses and all agree to train under Yao.
The trio develop friendships as they are pushed to their limits by Yao who trains them in both magic and combat. With the help of Wong and Baroness Ma, Strange is able to regain the use of her hands. Yao also reveals she is their dimension’s Sorceress Supreme, a title she intends on passing down to one of her students.
However, as years pass, Baroness Ma grows impatient and is determined to obtain the mantle of Sorceress Supreme. She succumbs to the influence of a powerful entity known as Dormammu, and succeeds in killing Yao.
However, instead of dying, Yao becomes a mystical entity called “The Ancient One”, and bestows the title of Sorceress Supreme to Dr. Strange. After a battle with Baroness Ma, Dr. Strange and Wong move to the United States to continue their work. Now, Wong and Dr. Strange battle the paranormal evil out of the Sanctum Sanctorum in Greenwich Village, NYC.
During their adventures, Wong and Dr. Strange meet up with a variety of characters. Two of which, Danny Ran aka Iron Fist and Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye, join their cause after they get caught up in some paranormal trouble and need the help of the Sorceress Supreme!
In addition, they run into Dormammu’s neice and Sorceress Supreme of the Dark Dimension, Clea, who winds up being Dr. Strange’s love interest! Together, Clea, Wong, Hawkeye, Iron Fist and Dr. Strange form the new Defenders team!
What crazy adventures will they run into next?
Also bonus! Alternate costumes or like… season 2 costumes (maybe?)!
And just for kicks I composed them together. I designed the Felicia Spidey image to line up like that, but it kinda works with all three of them taking a selfie! Let’s just ignore the eyelines of everything…
I was asked to do a redesigns of Wiccan and Hulkling in a slightly more casual style. I love this idea of Wiccan having some parts of the costume covered with stars so much that I decided to use it through the whole core of the outfit.
I’ve been asked twice about this, and here is the fruit from that labor. Not knowing much of this character, I do know she’s this kinda shapeshifter (as in I’ve seen her in pictures where she’s something else) and her body ‘makes’ her costume. Yowza. So what I really did here was make this one piece so it wouldn’t be awkward? in public. I dunno. I was thinking of a skirt, b/c if she changes then she wouldn’t be losing pants all the time, but I couldn’t figure a good skirt that would work, so hence the one-piece. Finally I wanted a more….translucent skin (much like my Poison Ivy long ago). It gives texture to her skin.
