Prince Namor (reimagined)
Another doodle done for the Whitechapel 'reimagined' slot - the current one is for Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner. The instruction for this one was pretty much to ignore the existing version and just use "The child of a human sea captain and of a princess of the mythical undersea kingdom of Atlantis” as the brief. Makes sense as the proper character hasn't really got anything fishy about him - no idea where the winged ankles and spock ears come from bu not really what you would relate with underwater creatures. Dabbled with making it a full on monster but decided to keep it as a 'human' character that could actually still be used in a similar way as the existing version within the marvel universe. Wanted to make this one seem a bit happier with his lot in life though, rather than the grumpy Namor that is the default. Only decided to do this at the last minute tonight hence the last minute post.
