Interesting posing on the robot. Cool

Here’s a stab at a couple of public domain characters.

First off Captain Blood a pirate displaced in time.

http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/bad-people/2012/08/Captain-Blood.png

Irish born Caribbean Governor and former pirate, physician , and Royal Navy Sailor Captain Peter Blood was investigating a rumored separatist Voodoo cult in his territory when he ventured into a series of catacombs under his island. Little did he know the Voodoo high priest had just been murdered by a novice magician from his ranks who was making a desperate bid for power. Upon being discovered by Governor Blood the panicked magician threw a string of cursed bones at the captain locking him in a moment in time. Before he could dispatch Blood permanently the room began to quake, seemingly emanating from the corps of the murdered High Priest sealing the chamber for well over three hundred years. In modern days an archeological survey of the catacombs uncovered the chamber and to the start of those that found it the perfectly preserved (And still living) body of Peter Blood. Once the string of bones were removed Blood regained consciousness and mobility and set out to discover the world in which he now found himself.

and PantherMan a crime-boss of old returning to power.

http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/bad-people/2012/08/JaguarMan.png

PantherMan was a vicious sociopathic Crime-Boss in the first half of the twentieth century. In the 1940’s he was confronted and apprehended by masked crime-fighter “The Owl” Though he was never positively identified he was convicted of several counts of abduction and murder as “John Doe”. Despite several daring and clever escape attempts he spent the following decades in prison. Years later in the prison infirmary the elderly and frail “John Doe” was visited by a mysterious stranger who gifted him with a very old wooden jaguar totem, six days later he died of old age. Six days after his burial in the prison cemetery his grave was found open and empty, six additional days passed before a number of known crime-bosses were found dead in an old meeting room with a large panther painted on the back wall in blood.

Another go at public domain characters, Tsuru Watanabe & The Headless Horseman

I always thought The Legend of Sleepy Hallow would fit pretty well as a Japanese Myth.

Nice and I agree with it working well in a Japanese setting, the closest they have is probably the nukekubi, which is almost like a vampire which can separate its head.

The Punk Troop is a really cool name for a gang.

He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.

Deathmask was a villager who was permanently scared in a civil war in her nation, she now takes it out on the world.

http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/bad-people/2012/09/Deathmask.png

She was badly scared in the face when young and spent the next few years as a child partisan where she developed a reputation as a skilled and merciless killer.

unmasked close-up. Parental discretion is advised.

Scarlet Mantle

Scarlet-Mantle-I.png

Mob soldier Grant Warner was known as a tough customer with a talent for armed robbery. When his crew where involved in an armored car robbery they weren’t expecting company, but a civilian car pulled up to investigate. Warner was ordered to murder the family of three and as used to violence as he was he found the killing of a woman and young child distasteful. Refusing his boss shot him in the head.

Fourteen hours later the door to the hideout burst open and the remaining mobsters were shocked to see a man with a rag torn from a young girl’s dress wrapped around his head and face, soaked through in blood. The man killed the crew and took the money, leaving his gun behind.

Grant sat in his room with his head in his hands and tore the makeshift bandages from his face and looked at them, this had to stop the killing, the violence, and the crime in general.

He was going to be the one to try.

Cool character.

Attention to details. The little things can add up and can be the difference between a good design and a bad one.
