Simon is curious, at least that’s what I see when I look at this portrait. Did this one quick and dirty to try out the undo history recorder in zBrush. Should have the video up on my blog at some point tomorrow… after I sleep.
“Ask & I’ll point you to the place… heh”
Michael Doucet was born an Acadian living on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. He learned to live off the land hunting and trapping to survive in the wilderness. He has since joined the Elite Guardians, a group dedicated to preventing the leakage of evil spirits into our world.
White Devil (aka The Fly Gwai Lo) is a supervillain whose face is an oni-style devil mask and whose most treasured weapon is his nice-ass suit. He imagines himself as a pretty funny guy, a “‘high on life’ type”. A former ‘economic hit man’ affiliated with the IMF and World Bank, he was transformed by Edam pu Eman after boasting that he could sell anything to anyone even as a literal devil. She obliged him, but rather than feeling properly cursed, he thinks it’s pretty awesome, and now he just runs around conning people into deals that are terrible for them. He never stops thanking Edam for what she did to him. It’s honestly kind of disturbing.
Back to the graphite drawings. This guy may be older, but he’s tougher than nails, hence “Strong Guy”
It had all lead to this, she’d put in a hell of a lot of effort to get this far, the odds had been far out of her favor and yet she had triumphed. A cup of coffee, altogether too hot and sweet, was hers. Triumph.
The darting eyes of waiters under thick black hair and too much pressure from the obnoxious American canoe competition team on table four had not looked her way, the steaming pots of cheap coffee and weak tea poured by without ever diverting in their path to her table but still she had triumphed over the odds. With a cunning combination of feminine charm and obstinate determination that comes from paying a ludicrous fee for the breakfast buffet she had broken through the ranks of waiting staff to her goal: the coffee. Kind of a shame that it tasted so awful.

Sorry for the lateness on the entry guys.
Real name: Franklin Holman
Age:39 Location:Chicago, Illinois
Franklin was a celebrated make-up and special effects artist. After he is wanted for a murder he didn’t commit, he faked his death in order to hide and figure out who did this to him and why. he created a horrifying face from a mask made from an experimental idea he had for a Halloween costume. Using a old suit he had in his closet to go along with the mask, he patrols the city in search of injustice to destroy as The Face.
Lot of bug and insect looks seeping into my unconscious with this years characters. I hate spiders, so that must be filtering in some how. 😀 Again no idea about a background on this fella, just popped into my head. I guess thats better then popping out of my head. LOL
This year is going to be tough for me to do 30 full color pieces. I lost the whole first week of Nov due to lost power from storm Sandy. So instead what Im going to do is 30 tight pencil sketches of new characters. When i can I’ll try and bring them to finish like my Day one post. So here is day 2 The Hammer. No idea for background on this guy yet. I was very influenced by the incredibly awesome Hammer wielding heroes and villains from Stuart Immonen’s work on Marvels Fear Itself. Great stuff and very inspirational.
Sad lives up to his chosen costumed name. He often wonders why he bothers, after all we are all headed for a bad ending someday anyway. Besides even if he stops this crime, it’s not like hundreds of others won’t occur. In the end does any of what any of us does really matter. Usually after a few minutes of being around this the crooks give themselves up, even prison seems cheerful after being around Sad.
I imagine that the very prude, uptight Dr. Han is a mean but brilliant scientist.
One day in his lab he accidentally creates these three blobs of life that he names Obbo’s
Belligerent yet protective, Lou.
Happy go lucky and clumsy, Tad.
And loveable yet naive, Beau.
I think that these four would be very fun to work with!
