This is hands down the coolest modern Nova costume we've seen yet! We're still keeping our fingers crossed that a version like this will show up in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' film.

SMP Designs was, by far, the best experience I have ever had with a costume maker. I've commissioned a few costumes, and have always had huge problems. Sean was the exact opposite. Amazing work, extremely high quality. Highly recommended.

Sean is fantastic to work with. I always know he has everything covered. I don't need to ask questions or worry. It's done, right, the first time! Hire this guy. You won't regret it!

In this post, I’ll be covering a new Wolverine project. This will be an original version of the character based on different concepts and reference images that the client and I reviewed and selected design elements to focus on and include. As usual, the first step was to create a fitting mock up. I created […]

How It Was Made: Raven
January 1, 2017

In this post, I’ll be going over the the construction of a redesign of Teen Titans’ Raven. The client originally sent me the art below from the animated Teen Titans series. While this was the base for the design, we wanted to amp it up and make it more cinematic. So, I decided to add […]

Below is […]

How It Was Made: Captain America Armor Variant
September 29, 2016

After completing the last Captain America project, I’ve taken on a new version. This one is based on the one covered here, but has one major difference – it’s armored. I’m using the below artwork as reference, though this new piece is not ment to be any one version, but an original “mash-up” of some […]
