Dean Robert Smith is a graphic designer hailing from the UK that recently redesigned the characters from The Avengers in a series of simple superhero sketches that highlight the crimefighters at their most basic. The illustrations strip the characters down to their preliminary linear outlines highlighting the artistry behind the design.
At the heart of all popular superheroes is the comic books and graphic novels from which they were first adapted from, as Smith's designs showcase. These graphics capture the simplicity of the heroes and their glorious costumes with clean shapes and lines without any interior color fill. Despite the lack of shading, highlighting and detail, the images still capture the essence of the characters and their timeless glory.
