i love this! my favourite so far!!
Well I like it! The shirt is great. the low v cut, the scale-ended short sleeves all say “one with nature” to me. The pants are ok. Might take him a wee bit more seriously if they were longer. Just above or below the knee.
What really sells it is his face. He realy looks wild but in a noble way.
A job well done Maris!!
Those shorts are very European. Not meant in a bad way, just sayin’…
I guess I’ve been trying to think – what would this redesign look like in another artist’s style?
Because as a ‘cute cartoony’ aquaman it works, but as a costume redesign? I don’t know.
I need this!!!!
Heh, I actually really like this! It’s simple but has a casual feel to it. Very free-spirited (which one might expect from a guy who rides porpoises). Great work, Maris!

I gave it a shot.
Now I want to see a JLA movie with Owen Wilson as Aquaman.
…WHO WEARS SHORT SHORTS!!!!!!!!! ^_^. Love.
So I’m the only one that already pictures short-shorts and super low v-necks when he thinks of Aquaman?
Nice! Wanna see the entire JLA in this style!
Very innocent feeling and child-friendly. Suitable for cartoon network.
He doesn’t look all that heroic, but I’m surprisingly okay with it, given that he’s Aquaman (a la his relative uselessness in “Superfriends,” maybe?). I have to say though, at first this redesign reminded me of what a younger Aquaman from the new “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” cartoon might look like, shorts and all.
And I can definitely hear Owen Wilson yelling “OLD CHUM!” in a live-action JLA movie.
So, in this world, does Aqualad wear pants?
I don’t like the drawing of this one. It doesn’t fit with the rest of the JLA redesigns either. I do however quite like Warren T. Newsom interpretation of the costume. The costume works, but I think the art is a bit too Scott Pilgrim. & yes, this does look ALOT like Owen Wilson!
I love Maris’ drawing! I only did mine to show what the costume might look like from an artist with a different style. I think the costume works extremely well. I think Jim Aparo could have done Aquaman with this costume and it still would have looked awesome.
Great design, and great drawing, Maris!
Yea! A Maris Wicks sighting! I have yet to see anything done by Maris that isn’t both charming and smart. (And yes, I find the poop and fart jokes charming.)
looks like his costume shrunk…
Silly Saturday-morning feel to this.
i was on board with this idea until now…given the super man addition i still had hope that this would come out cool….
I love it. I love the variety of styles that are showing through. Great idea gang!
