    I'll start with a quick sketch I made for what I hoped would be Rogue's new X-men costume.
    I was disappointed to see they just reused the 90s costume again and took no inspiration from Dauterman's incredible Gala design.
    So I created something inspired by Dauterman, but mixing it with my favorite elements from the Chris Bachalo design and adding a recolor of the 90s bodysuit underneath.

    I made some designs for this new era.

    Betsy and Kwannon on the same team:

    or Betsy still as Captain Britain in a new Excalibur book with Rachel and Meggan:

    That looks nice Factor!

    Personally I kinda want Rogue in a non-green costume again. Especially if Jean and Polaris are using so much in their uniforms.

    A red or maroon variant of this costume would be <3 as a bit of a call back to her X-Treme uniform.

    not my art, unfortunately the link I followed did not give the artists name, though they are recognizable concept art...

    Thank you! I really wanted it to feel like a natural progression from her classic looks.

    Thanks! I picked green because I wanted to use her most iconic color, but I also love her X-treme era.

    Here's another design I created today. This time it's Synch.
    He was significantly harder to design because he has 3 costumes that I know of, 2 of them being Gen X costumes that the whole class wore and 1 is the most recent one, which is also a pretty generic "yellow X" design. So he doesn't really have a look of his own with recognizable elements like Rogue does.
    Let me know what you guys think:

    Reminds me of Angel from Chuck Austen's UXM run.

    Ediy: BTW, how do you picture your Rogue's design shoes?

    Ouch! LOL. But I guess the color is similar

    I pictured something like her 80s shoes, but I'm not terribly happy with how they turned out, so I cropped the picture.

    I wasn't throwing shade at you LOL I love that Angel costume. Probably the only good thing that came out of his run as far as I remember.

    Interesting choice of shoes. I'm doing my rendition of your design if you don't mind. Just drawing and enjoying some music.

    My talentless and butt-ugly Jean Grey redesign, I also updated her codename.

    "Can we just say that she is a chaos magic avatar and that her origin is split across the multiverse? She has no beginning, she has no end, she exists to be the improbability of the cosmos. She's neither mutant, inhuman, sorcereress or otherwise. Everything and nothing." (Anonymous)

    Hahaha no problem. I automatically think anything regarding that run is bad.
    And feel free to draw the design! I'm excited to see your take on it

    Austen run had a few good things. Like the sweetest X-cover is from his run.

    And as promised, here's my rendition of your Rogue design with some flat colors to add some life:


    I took a few liberties here, like keeping her waves. Overall it's a strong design and I'd only change the dark gray on the outfit since it looks too similar to Monet.
