Put here the designs for your villains if you are suggesting one and also your Hero if either a) there is no active comic for this character or b) you are using a different design than that which appears in your title.

First sketches for a female superhero… this one pretty much already nails what I had in mind, the final design won't be much different.

She is called Bombshell.



She's an explosives specialist, working as a UN secretary, doing lobby work mainly against the use of mines… the idea is that she's fighting the bad guys as a lobbyist by day and as a superhero by night. She's equipped with a cybernetic glove… which basically makes things explode ^^. I'm also thinking of using some sort of shape-shifting armor to make her less vulnerable but still keep her human.

Sweet sketch! And a unique power as far as I know, so that's good too. Just so I know, what is everyone's character's powers?

Energize:
Energy based power - looks electrical but it's not, it's a unique energy that his body is constantly recharged with.
He has:
super strength
a protective aura
super speed
flight
thermal vision
energy blasts
a sixth sense for danger

Acrobat doesn't really have any super powers so I'll just list skills…

-Acrobatic (duh!)
-Extremely intelligent due to his strict upbringing by Blackhawk (like batman but more obsessive)
-Has martial arts skills…pretty much anything that robin can do
-a smart mouth : P


EDIT: and oh yeah, I wouldn't mind drawing a scene including bombshell. Socially awkward former teenage sidekick plus…well a bomb shell equals comedy gold.

Thanks guys. Dante (Hellfire) just has pyrokinetic powers (ignite and/or control fire) and also has a decent ability for hand to hand combat. Nothing too fancy.

Literacysuks1, I think that's a smart idea.

I don't want to start a new topic for this so…

I did a quick sketch of hellfire as prep for my pages. If anyone else does some sketches of other people's characters post them here so that we can be sure everyone is drawing all of the characters somewhat on model.



As for this one I think I got his hair slightly wrong and he may be a bit too skinny…I don't want him to be superman big but I don't want him to look like a teenager either.

Good picture, i think it looks cool.

As a side note, I have offered to colour the art of anyone who either can't or dosen't have time etc, etc…

can you just let me know who will be in colour and who won't?

Cheers

I'll try to color some of my pages – depends on the time I have, otherwise it's good to know my pages will be in your skilled hands.

Here the full new design, I just decided to be awkward and throw in some extra. Also, thanks for helping me choose the grey design. Deep down it was the one I wanted anyway, I just didn't realise it.



Literacysucks1, thanks for the picture! You did a great job there. I'll get practicing other peoples' characters asap.

Sweet! I hate to say this, since the picture is so good, but I think acrobat should be just a LITTLE younger looking with a less square jaw, He's about 15-16ish.



Quick Energize, and just like hellfire I think I made him look too young. Agh. Doing a comic with mostly teenage characters has screwed me up. >_>

Nice picture of Energize.

Has anyone come up with some designs for Deuce yet?

I only have my original design which is not gonna cut it, so im starting afresh.

I've brainstormed his design a bit, but I haven't thought of anything that isn't either A ) generic or B ) stupid looking. Right now I'm waiting for someone else to post a good springboard.

Assuming this link works here is my design for Deuce.

Excuse the poor quality but this is done straight in ball point pen during my lunch hour at work.



Let me know what you think.

lol… me too. Sorry for the lack of sketches on my part, I am seriously busy right now… if I can't find the time I'll just see how my scenes turn out in the script and practice characters accordingly.

Finally, some more sketches of Bombshell, so anyone who might get to draw her knows what I envision her to look like… these sketches are obviously not done for beauty or accuracy ;-)



What's important is that she really looks like a woman, not girlish… the Wonder Woman type. Think Frank Cho/Adam Hughes/Terry Dodson.

I'll do some more detailed sketches… especially of her the glove, which is not pictured here (but on the other sketch, should be one of the first posts in this thread). The idea is that her costume can expand to some sort of armor to shield her from explosions. I'll draw that soon too…

looks cool, glove thing is making me think Witchblade sort of stuff, is that right?

Also, is it just because these are sketches or is she Blonde when civilian and Dark as Bombshell?

Thanks, I guess Witchblade is the most famous superhero glove bearer, but her glove and Bombshell's don't have much in common. Bombshell's is just a cool gadget, like Batman would have, not a mystic artefact.

And thanks for pointing out her hair color - she should be black haired in both her civilian and superhero persona! (I just didn't spot the blacks in the “civilian” sketch.) There are some other color changes though, I'll indicate them in a later sketch.

eeeeeh, I tried. She really doesn't have that frank cho drawing body type like you wanted….I'll study up on how to draw women like that a bit better before I do my pages.



EDIT: oh yeah, that new acrobat looks better. Still huge…but better.

Hey, I like it! Especially how you did her boots (mind the “T”!), I couldn't really make it work in my sketch. I think you just need to exaggerate her figure a bit more.

I don't want to be the one to go bursting peoples bubble and ruining peoples moods as you all sketch each others characters, but i want you to remember one thing. Not every scene of the comic will feature all of the heroes at the same time, it would not work. Equally that means that we won't each get to draw all of the characters…which is unfortunate but unavoidable.

For example, as I am now writing the story and I am on the opening few pages I have to accept the fact that I will not get to draw much of the action, i am doing introductions. Some scene are limited to just 2 of the characters at a time.

If when you find out what you are drawing you are not pleased then at this late stage the only option will be to swap with another artist. Once I have issued the plot, I will start a new Thread for exactly that kind of debate, but hopefully we will not have a problem.

If you want, I can let you each know who will feature in you scenes so that you practise the relevant characters.

In the case of Literacysuks1, i know now that your pages take place PRIOR to Bombshells involvement in the battle, so you won't actually be drawing her. Although you do have her for the final shot…

Let me know if you want a breakdown and I will do it.

If I'm only drawing bombshell once in the comic, all the better to practice to make that one drawing count eh?

And do you know which characters I'll be drawing in my pages so that I can focus my practice a bit more?

@Literacysuks1:

2 of your pages will feature the aliens, (which as we have not settled on a design for Deuce yet is a little tricky at the moment)

But your other 3 pages feature:
Hellfire
Energize
Acrobat
Tazor

and of course Deuce
