This one will be really fucking interesting. Especially since Punisher's costume is so damned good already.

It is good, but I feel like it has some room for improvement, so I am curious as well.

Hmm.. I think there's a lot of room for interpretation.. I just don't know which direction to go in.

Coooool.

Deathlok would be a good one too!

I know in my head what I think he should look like. Not sure I have the skill to translate it to a picture. I'm curious if anyone else will come close to what I'm envisioning.

I think he should have a beard. He wouldn't care about shaving. Make it so!

In my mind, this is Frank in, like, the last week of his war. Somehow, he's actually succeeded. He's wiped out the majority of organized crime on the East Coast to the Midwest, and those that remain are terrified to come near him, as are those how dare to be petty criminals. Now all that's left for Frank is finish off some last vestiges of the Mafia, and in the process, get himself killed. He's stopped wearing Kevlar, he's stopped taking care of himself. He's inked up, unkempt, and ready to die.

Also, it was totally unintentional that he looks exactly like Gerard Butler. I was as surprised as anyone when I was done and found Leonidus looking back at me.

This one I'll have to think about. I had a concept in mind but it started looking like the Grim Reaper.

Great job, Dave!

I really dig the concept of tattoos instead of a shirt/costume.

Heh, nice :D

It'd be neat to see him like Zsasz marking all the bad guys he's killed ala tattooing.. he'd be like a coherent Memento guy :)

For me, the perfect Punisher wears an all black SWAT/Navy SEAL suit. Including the helmet, and night vision goggles. It never made sense to me that, being a former soldier, he wouldn't protect his head.

No-prize answer:

He wants his face to be the last thing they see when they die.

Really? oh. Doesn't explain the lack of helmet. Does he want them to notice his awesome hair, too? ;)

Still, a nice skull-ish facemask under his helmet would be awesome.

I wanted something that would spook people to see coming at them out of the darkness.

I started with the idea of a gasmask painted to look like a skull.

At some points, I had a Brian Lumley skull on his chest, and later the one at the bottom, ditching it when I figured he'd want to keep in the dark for maximum effect.

I had boots, but apparently I accidentally deleted them.. ah well, it works better, IMO.

I don't think you could get a more perfect Punisher than Bradstreet.

Perfect on every level.

(Also, as an aside, saving the meat packing plant for later on.)

Actually, I found a sketch by Rafael Albacerque(sp?) of wat my perfect Punisher looks like.

Based on the Alamo Scouts (US 6th Army Special Reconnaissance Unit active from 1943-1945). He's a former soldier, so he's going to dress like a soldier in his personal war by wearing a black uniform and he paints a black skull on his face.

And my Punisher drives a lowered, reinforced 1951 Hudson Hornet racer, painted flat black.

Yeah, it's pretty plain.

Frank Castle. Ex-army ranger, Vietnam vet. Decorated with every combat medal under the sun. An accomplished man of war. He thought those days were behind him. After the nam’ Frank settled down, married a gorgeous girl, raised a family of 2 girls and one boy, his pride and joy. Years pass and He’s now a grandfather celebrating his retirement from decades of quiet service in the NYPD. Dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant; surrounded by his wife, his children, his grandchildren. The restaurant explodes in a hail of gunfire. His whole family dead. Collateral damage in a war between two rival mafia families. Frank survives or a part of him does. Now the old soldier has a new war. He is an army of one. He is The Punisher.

I was thinking of just photoshopping a skull onto the epic beard man from the Oakland Ambalamps Bus Fight. Then I thought better of it.

Edit: Btw, these are freaking awesome.

This guy looks Scottish. He should be wearing a Kilt. :)

i see no real sense in re-designing the punisher so here's an oldie.
my contribution: fingerless gloves.

Ya know, I could draw him in the exact same pose with a kilt, bagpipes and hairy legs and it would not look half bad.

Can't go wrong with a gattling gun, that's what I always say (usually, it doesn't make any sense when I say it, but this time it works!).
