Originally I wanted Rhino to be  a bit more like the Insomniac version but as I started drawing it i realized that I kind of hate that overly armored look and do not enjoy drawing it.  I understand there are practicial issues with my design in that his torso is exposed but I just love the "cave man wrestler" look so much.

in my universe Aleksei Sytsevich was a Ukrainian Wrestler and part-time thug.  After a serious injury he used his criminal connections to become part of covert super soldier program from Russia.  This resulted in him having a prototype armored hide grafted to parts of his body.  Alexi would eventually defect from the program and use his newfound power to be a freelance hitman. 
Adrian Toomes

I basically copied the wings and pose from the Insomniac game concept art.

I really liked what Homecoming went for visually in giving him this old school adventurer/pilot look but with a sinister edge.  I tried to replicate that.  However, as much as I like Keaton i was not a fan of how compassionately he was as a villain. Vulture is one of Spideys nastier enemies he was just never competent enough to be a threat like Ock, Goblin or Carnage.  I do love that his MO is stealing excess technology though, that links in with his motif really well. 

In my universe he is an engineer who runs a gang of techno thieves. He is also a nasty bastard.
I took a lot of inspiration from the Spider-verse version for Scorpion.  Although i love the classic design I like the more cyberpunk aesthetic and always felt some Spidey villains look too "superheroic" in their design (Mysterio, Scorpion) and i felt he needed more bite.  I also think a cybernetic design opens up the potential for him to evolve his look over time.

My version of Scorpion.

The man only known as Scorpion is a representative for the largest Mexican Drug Cartel in New York.  Sent by the cartels to do business with the NYC Kingpin.  Little is known about the Mexican mans identity other than his passport says "Mac Gargan" and is likely false.  His known as the "Scorpion" due to a history of poisoning cartel enemies with a rare scorpion poison.  While working a job alongside Kingpin cronies Mac is caught in the corssfire in a battle between Spider-Man and the Hobgoblin.  As a result of this he suffers irreparable damage to his spine and both of his lower legs. 
Not wanting to ruin his relationship with the Cartels; Kingpin takes Mac to Otto Octavious, the science prodigy of Horizon labs and forces him to save Macs life with cybernetics.  Otto is a respected scientist but has on the side developed technology that Kingpin uses for criminal activity.  Otto uses takes the opportunity to use Mac as a guinea pig for his neuro-prosthetic cybernetic process he has been developing.
And the Scorpion is born!

He has "blade runner" type legs that enable him to move fast and scale buildings, a cybernetic-enhanced spine which enables the use of a powerful tail weapon.  The enhanced spine also increases his strength.  Additionally he has retractable lenses that give him heat vision.  His tail comes equipped with a titanium blade and a customization projectile weapon that he often uses with acid of poison.
