Deathstroke is back! by AndyPoonDesign Deathstroke is back! by AndyPoonDesign
I've been waiting very impatiently for this one, cause its a pretty important one for me. The new badder and improve Deathstroke returns in the latest episode of Arrow "Blindspot". I was very excited when i find out that I get to do a new version of him, but also comes the burden that Arkham Origin just came out and their Deathstroke is BAD-ASS!!! What to do?? I looked up every single version of him that has been done to find key elements but also things that has been done. Almost everything has been done........ so the only strong direction is to stick to the style of the show and ground him. The Arkham version is super cool but has a lot of more fantastic elements that I can stay away from, his armors are almost abit medieval inspired. I was also excited when Costume Designer Maya Mani told me that they are finally open to more hard body armor and even some colors other than the black and greys! We've talked about that it should not be a completely new suit the he built, but more like an upgraded version of Slade, so I took alot of the Island Slade elements and incorporated into the new Deathstroke. I know it will be compare to the Arkham one, but I think we found a good balance that it is cool enough but realistic enough so I'm not so worried by the end of it. Enjoy!

So I see on the show his new Deathstroke has a katana rather than the tactical swords he used on the island and in this design. I really love his blades on the island so I wish they'd gone the route of this initial design and kept those. Just a minor nitpick to an overall awesome new suit.
Thank you guys so much for not pulling a Smallville and making every single costume a vest, a hoodie, or a combination of the two.
This is awesome but his Arkham Origins look is even better. Wonder why they couldn't adapt that aesthetic look onto arrow? It's still realistic. I prefer the Origins mask.
Origins is way too medieval for my tastes.
The mask is the same except for the mouth piece
This is how to bring comic book characters to life. Great design and great drawing.
Awsome design... now I just have to figure out how to make a cosplay suit of this for my wife :)

I'm a big fan of Deathstroke, and this is a thing of beauty. Well done. :salute:
Awesome, this is just the perfct design for Deathstroke. Only complaint is the loss of the scarf he wore in the first season/Island segments. I liked that bit for some reason, it gave him a special forces vibe.
