Reference sheets for the two German superheroes and Peligroso and Wraith
(click on the images to see the original size):On the left is the first Kaleidoskop
(that's the German spelling, not a typo). He dies an ugly death in HA #3.
One of the first German superheroes to appear after WWII, he is a regular, if well trained, human called Karl Leitner, but the gadgets in his kevlar-padded suit give him power over light - there are light collectors on his forehead and chest. He can shoot beams out of the projectors on his forearms, and he can manipulate the intensity of the rays. The collectors, projectors and the rays themselves resemble kaleidoscopes. (Here's a nice tutorial
on how to create kaleidoscope effects in Photoshop very easily.)On the right is the second Kaleidoskop
, who has recently become the first one's sidekick. (To avoid confusion, they will refer to each other as “senior” and “junior”, or “No. 1” and “No. 2”.) She is a 21-year old social worker whose parents immigrated from Turkey to Germany. I have yet to find a good name for her. She can also manipulate light, but doesn't need any gadgets to do that. She also has other “regular” superhuman powers, like flight, invulnerabilty and super-strength, but each of these aren't too well developed yet.
Peligroso's design is pretty much based on this artwork by MrHades
The only thing I really changed is the mask. Everything should be pretty self-explanatory… Wraith's feet burn. Yup. There's an evil mouth floating in front of his face, but I need to point out that this detail is a homage to JUMP
and should not be used anywhere else but on HA #3. Floating mouth is off-limits everywhere else.
Otherwise, the author of JUMP will beat me up and leave me for dead in some filthy alley. And it'll be YOUR fault.
