I was thinking about all of the charaters and contests on the Vine, and public domain I thought was a perfect way to get to see some cool, or campy, drawings. This essentially is the same as every other contest, the winner of this one gets to choose the next...
 
The objective to this is like the costume contest, redesign the character's costume into something cooler, funnier, scarier etc.
The character for this contest:
 
 
 

No Caption Provided
Now remember, I want to see stuff that is completely different, but still has the same Duke feel. Give him a much needed makeover, armor, new mask, etc.
 
 The contest ends October 5th, unless you need more time.
 
 
 The of Darkness was Danny “Paddy” Sullivan, a police officer from an unnamed American city. When he was killed in the line of duty, Danny discovered that he continued to exist as an "Earth-bound spirit." He decided to continue fighting crime as the Duke of Darkness.
 
His powers include intangibility, , super strength, and the ability to perceive & battle ghosts and demons. Even though he's a "ghost," he is able to be knocked out by a bump on the head such as in his first adventure. The Duke of Darkness battles villains such as Professor Evil and Mr. Slumber, who attack people through their dreams. A police captain whom Danny once served under viewed the Duke of Darkness as a very mundane nutcase and kept trying to lock him up. Although Danny could escape at any time, he humored his former boss in between solving crimes.
 
 
 
And most of all, GOOD LUCK!!!
 
PS, I'm not sure if you are allowed to make your own contest, but if you are not someone tell me =)

@PikminMania: was actually wondering when someone would setup a regular running challenge for the PD characters. There's so many great ones to choose from.

Good one, I'm definitely in :)

@turoksonofstone: @tonis: Thanks. To be honest, I thought of this because I decided to start creating my own universe of characters and stories, and I added a lot of public domain characters into it. Duke was my first choice.
 
Can't wait to see yours.

Considering the nature of the contest and the fellows powers, I may actually give this a shot.  Great idea either way if I don't.

@payno: nice one, you always kick butt with those ghost like characters :)

I tried to give him a more fancy suit that would look like a duke would wear.

just found this there and came up with a design :P Here it is

No Caption Provided

Ok so here it is. I really didnt want to drift far from the original design as i love the costumes of the golden age (i guess i could call it)

So i kept the main elements such as the colours and cape, collar however ive changed the boots and gloves and made them more metallic looking. To give him a more supernatural feel ive made anything blue have a kind of firey effect to increase his spooky-ness :P

the background was just for filler, however i think it emphasised the eerie nature of his character

@Blizaga101: Dude, great job. Love the design. Again, these are all great takes on the Duke of Darkness. I think PimkinMania stated October 5th is the deadline but I don't know what time on October 5th.

@KEROGA: I love it. It reminds me of a 30s version of Duke of Darkness.
 @Blizaga101
12:00 October 5th

For anyone who is interested, you can read all four stories that the Duke of Darkness was featured in here: http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Duke_of_Darkness
Look down and it will show a link where you can download Duke's comics.
