The Lizard – TRDL Redesign [2012 Film Version]

I hadn't seen the film yet at the time this piece was done, and while I find the Lizard kind of boring when he’s naked and running around (I did like the toy version of the film design better than what i’ve seen in promos for the film itself..), that’s not really anyone’s fault. It’s a green lizard monster. It’s not exciting. However, I always loved in the comics how he was wearing his tattered lab coat and suit, so I went with that look for this. This is a TRDL Redesign, so I just imagined what i wanted to see in the Lizard on film. While I experimented with other heads in my sketches below, I went with a bony, humanoid head (not unlike the film approach), though I exaggerated the arms in length and size to give him stranger, monstrous proportions, rationalizing that he was targeting his arm first due to his injury. Anyway, have a look!
