Alternate Colossus Character Design for DEADPOOL
We’ve previously posted concept art showing alternate character designs for Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the Deadpool movie, which were cool. Now concept artist Alexander Lozano has released a few images that show us a very different take on Colossus, and it makes you happy that director Tim Miller went with the look that they did in the film. I don’t like this alternate take on the character at all. What we saw in the film was the comic book version fans always wanted to see. In case you were wondering what in the hell the artist was thinking when he came up with this, here is an explanation:
"Before the 'final design' was found, I tried a few different ways. At that point of time, I didn't know if Colossus was planned as a 'walking around in bright daylight' character or more of a 'hide in the shadows' hero like in the old X-Men days. So I played around with a Darth Maul-hoodie and the idea to place the 'X' very subtle on his chest with the endings of his scarf. I also wanted to repeat the ripples in his arms with the design of the boots. ...and a lot of possibilities to fix all the X-Men mansion keys at his pants."
Colossus looks like a pretty-boy version of the character that you might see on a cheesy CW or MTV young adult series. Check out the alternate character designs below and let us know what you think!
