I have to admit, I’m really proud of this guy, because everything I wanted to do but thought I couldn’t, I did. Especially the stomach armor that looks like muscle. 😀 Every superhero’s gotta have it, real or fake!
Now, I’ve done the two pictures here for several reasons. You’ll notice that the uncolored picture is different (duh :D) but different in the way that I mean the character’s armor is not popped out. That will be flying mode. I also put the uncolored version there to illustrate how shading and color really make a difference in how the drawing looks.
So, this guy is gonna be a super hero, he has a secret identity, but you don’t know who it is. And I might change it without notice, because I tend to do that. The silk looking stuff is his wings, have you ever seen the videos of the crazy guy in the flying squirrel suit who jumps off mountains and flies at 300 mph? Well, this character was loosely based off that guy. I say loosely because that guy is crazy and this guy isn’t. 🙂 Technically, the wings shouldn’t be out in fighting mode (colored pic) but I wanted to see if they were a good fit, and they are. That triangle button activates flying mode, and the rest of the buttons… you’ll have to wait and see what they do. (I actually don’t know what they do but when I decide you won’t know about it!) The pads on his fingers are antigravity pads, I guess I need a button for that, don’t I…
I looked at old comics of the other super heroes to kind of get a feel of what I wanted to do. I wanted more futuristic, like Iron Man, but not so much of that gear, because it makes the hero feel bulky, but no gear makes him feel like old time Super Man, which isn’t bad, but as I said, futuristic. I had him way fatter than that, originally, and I was wondering why he looked so weird, and then I took off some of the fat and added muscle armor, and then it looked awesome. Despite it’s being armor, if it looks like muscle, then the overall feel of the character is more slick and less bulky. Black and green colors also help this effect.
Anyway, hope you enjoy!
