#17 – Captain Star

| November 20, 2011 | 2 Comments


Captain Star is a character I came up with when I was a little kid. Back then, he had an underground base with a supercar and a super doggie sidekick. His uniform was red, white & blue with a big gold star on his chest. He was the first superhero I had created; I thought it would be cool to update him 30 years later. His current look comes from a design I did for a dead end project I worked on a few years ago. I always thought the suit was cool and a perfect fit for Captain Star. When I created him, he was just a Do-gooder, nothing to deep or dramatic. I was about 7 so nothing too complicated. But I thought it would be interesting to have a Superman type ‘hero’ who didn’t answer to countries or governments or operated within the laws of the land. He would save those who need saved, help the helpless, but also punish the guilty and eliminate those who pose a serious enough threat to global peace. No more peace talks, sanctions, negotiations, etc. in order to haggle out peace with dictators. Captain Star would drop down in the middle of a nasty dictator’s military parade of weapons, nukes and troops and would wipe everything off the map. Kind of WATCHMEN-esque, I suppose.

This is Rasko Rebasto — His alien race originally appeared at the beginning of my webcomic MORGANNA OF THE BORGS. Rasko is a character I have thought a lot about but haven’t really fleshed out until now.

#15 – Arethousa-The Water Elemental

Meet Arethousa the water elemental who is as old as the Earth itself! I introduced one of her counterparts, Faultline, in last years 30Characters. The last two Earth elementals, fire & air, will show up soon! Enjoy!

#14 – Jim Speedwell – Stuntman

Hot off the drawing table — Here’s Jim Speedwell-STUNTMAN! I have a love for old 60’s & 70’s action movies like ‘Smokey & The Bandit’, ‘Hooper’, ‘Bullitt’, etc. when the stunts and crazyass driving were all very real, not CGI B.S.! The don’t make them like that anymore, so Jimmy here is my little tribute to that era. Think equal parts Burt Reynolds, Steve McQueen, Kurt Russell, Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges and maybe a little John Wayne, too. I think he’s still a character that could be very cool and solid with the right storyline behind him. Enjoy!

#13 – Noriko: The Last Assassin

| November 13, 2011 | 3 Comments

Noriko is a revamp of a character I created for a DOA comicbook project several years ago. She had a slightly different look and a sillier name but that was about it. No history or background, just a look. So I’ve attached her to a storyline where several black ops assassins that work for a sinister global power have been contracted to take each other out. They don’t know that they’ve each of them been targeted by the other until Noriko discovers one of her targets is an old flame. Last year’s characters Ironwolf and Deadeye tie in to the story along with Killshot; he will make his appearance in 30Characters between now and day 30! 🙂 Enjoy!

NOTE: I’m sucha forgetful douche sometimes…BIG SHOUTOUT to Jamie Gambell for lending a hand the other night helping me finalize Noriko’s design. Your input was a huge help and most appreciated! THANK YOU!!

The BRATPACK have their first villain to contend with! Probably the creepiest character I’ve come up with. Creepiest looking anyways. Not much on the power scale but you don’t have to be loaded with powers to be a nasty evil dude.

#11 – Tessy Tantrum

I think this one is my favorite so far. 🙂 A little twist on the Hulk’s ‘the madder he gets, the stronger he gets’ mantra. What if the anger didn’t make a person stronger; only BIGGER…? A fun character to whip up. Hope you dig it!

#10 – Ice Maiden

This one was based on drawing done several years ago, lost in my stash of archived art. Not 100% happy with the pose but I think it’s pretty successful. Enjoy!

#9 – Visigoth

| November 9, 2011 | 2 Comments


A hero from ancient times finds himself sent to present day! Visigoth was inspired by an old Marvel Comics ‘What If’ issue where Conan the Barbarian was transported to present day (then the 1970’s.) I read it a long time ago but I thought that idea was pretty interesting and has been stuck in the back of mind for a long time. Enter the LOTR movies for a little more influence — and there you have it. I started roughing his look out for 30Characters last year but time didn’t allow for his appearance. Enjoy!

Hot on the heels of Professor Neutrino’s debut is another of his lackeys — the Screecher! With her black wings she terrorizes humanity from above! Her deafening shrieks drive all to madness! All will succumb to her deathcry!

#3 Professor Neutrino

At long last, the maniacal scientist Professor Neutrino makes his debut! The Professor is responsible for the sexy, slithery Copperhead, and the poisonous fishman, Blowfish from last year’s 30Characters challenge. He’s added a few more creations to his army of mutated henchmen this year! Can nothing stop him?!

2-Rod Cones

A fun, goofy character. Simple as that. Rod’s name came first — as in the rods and cones in the eye which perceive light and colors. From there, the rest was easy. 🙂 Enjoy!
