There is a very 60's /Emma Peel influence for my design of Janet. The non-costume outfit she wears in the book is derived from my first attempt at her costume (on the left).
The sketches above were my last failed attempt (all other attempts went out with the recycling) for Ant-Man. After looking at it, I decided this costume was a bit too complex. I really wanted both Hank and Janet to have very retro, simple and sleek costumes.
This is the design sheet I actually sent to Roger and Nate. At this point, all I had seen for the book was an outline. Once I got the script, these designs no longer felt appropriate for the story. So I put him in a modified version of his 60's costume, trying to play up the sci-fi feel to it.
Hope you guys are enjoying my take on some of these classic Marvel characters. And a big THANK YOU again to everyone who has been supporting the book by buying it, tweeting about it and talking it up on blogs, forums & podcasts. I appreciate it so much!
