-That One Anon
I knew it would come to this. A redesign of a one-note, Z-list, joke of a character.
Now, you may notice that this redesign was done pretty quickly. Don't expect that to be a regular thing. I mean, I'm only Human Afterall. The expediency for this one is because of my schedule being more accommodating than usual and CERTAINLY NOT because I gave up on my redesign of Doc Ock because I kept running into the same issues that I detailed in this post. Except yes it is.

With this redesign, I gave myself a few rules, as per usual.
- Keep the round, pink lenses.
- Keep the chest speaker.
- Keep the pink microphone.
- Keep the character funky.
|I like how that hoodie turned out.|
Now, I'm not as down-with-the-youngsters as I used to be, so I decided to make the character decidedly 70's, but in a different way. More hippie, less disco. The same decade but cooler, hipper, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.
My core idea is that mind controllers wouldn't necessarily need armor (because they'd brainwash someone else into fighting) and, because he's a Z-list villain, the Hypno-Hustler would have more of a "thrown together" look to him. After toying around with designs to go on the guitar, I ended up deciding against it. Lugging around a guitar to steal things would be a hassle, a weakness, and a giveaway.
Other than that, I have surprisingly little to say about the redesign, other than a story. I Googled things like "Bob Marley" and "Jimi Hendrix" for inspiration, without doing research on other people's redesigns of HH to keep my mind free from outside influences. Imagine my surprise when I Googled "Hypno-Hustler" One More Time, and found this.

And there you have it; a redesign of a character you've probably never heard of!
