I was reading an article about Overwatch recently (Yes, I’m still obsessed) and it mentioned a rumour that says the game may be getting a monkey/gorilla hero. While Winston is obviously already in the game, I really liked the idea of a little monkey character running around shooting everyone in the face and it reminded me of a character I created a while back.
Spider Monkey, the mercenary/assassin/all around psychopath has been lurking in my mind for a while now and saw a brief incarnation in DC Universe Online where he creeped out everyone else in Gotham and Metropolis.
The Overwatch article. whether it’s true or not, inspired me to give one of my favourite bad guys the look I always wanted him to have.
So here he is, ladies and gentlemen. The thoroughly creepy yet somehow still adorable…Spider Monkey.June 10, 2017 at 11:26 am #145787
Can he do sand castles too? Dust Devil looks cool.June 11, 2017 at 1:32 pm #145809

This explosion slinging beauty was originally part of a criminal duo with her sister, the original Knockout. Knockout and Bombshell were recurring foes of Jennifer Holt in her days as Supermodel. The sisters would ultimately win the war with their enemy when they kidnapped Supermodel and brainwashed her into joining their side.
The deadly duo then became a trio.
The sisters loved seeing the high and mighty Supermodel fall from grace but they weren’t prepared for how likable she actually was once they got to know her. They actually grew to consider her a friend. So when Supermodel found herself on the losing end of a fight with the extra dimensional terror known as Omega, Knockout and Bombshell came to her rescue.
Sadly however, during their attempted escape, Bombshell misfired an explosion and Knockout was killed.
Devastated and horrified by this, Bombshell fled, leaving a depowered Supermodel to her fate. If it wasn’t for the arrival of Jennifer’s niece, Jamie, she probably wouldn’t have made it out alive.
Bombshell had seemingly vanished, Supermodel had lost her powers and was crippled and Knockout was dead. The deadly trio of women was officially over.
The trauma of that night seemingly brought Jennifer back to her senses and she was given an official pardon for her efforts in holding back Omega, who planned to destroy everything but she was still haunted by the crimes she had committed. So when Jamie decided to carry on the family legacy of superhero women, Jennifer was proud and asked that she take on the name of the fallen Knockout.
Bombshell, however, was anything but proud.
She saw this young upstart using her dead sisters name as an insult. She wanted to put an end to it but she would take a much subtler approach than she usually did. From the shadows, Bombshell plotted against both Knockout and Jennifer for months, subjecting them to a torrent of mental and emotional pain through agents and proxies. Only after months of this did she reveal herself as the mastermind behind all of it.
Bombshell now hid her beauty under a hideous mask and declared herself the antithesis of everything Knockout stood for. Her plan didn’t stop there though. She drugged and abducted Knockout and planned to subject her to the same intense brainwashing that had been used against Supermodel. This was bombshell’s ultimate revenge against Jennifer, who she believed was responsible for her sisters death. Her plan may well have worked if it wasn’t for an emotional plea from Jennifer that gave Knockout enough time to escape and subdue Bombshell.
Her plan foiled, Bombshell now resides in a maximum security penitentiary where she patiently plots her next move. She has set aside her hatred for her former friend for the time being but her hatred of Knockout has only grown.June 12, 2017 at 2:57 pm #145839
Bombshell, well i’m sure she’s a blast to hang out with.June 18, 2017 at 5:00 am #145911June 18, 2017 at 5:41 am #145912
Stalker is the twin sister of Ariadne and a former assassin trying to make up for her past actions in a less lethal manner.June 23, 2017 at 9:44 pm #146051
Great work as usual, very cool costume designs , and wonderful posesJune 26, 2017 at 12:09 pm #146126
Very few people can openly walk in the world of both heroes and villains and not face any kind of backlash from one side or the other. Nightingale achieves this by offering medical services to those who need it but don’t want to risk going to a hospital.
Cyber offers an entirely different service. Knowledge.
There’s very little this information broker and hacker can’t find out for a price. She has rules, of course. Giving away someone’s secret identity or the location of a secret base is just bad for business and would only lose her customers but almost everything else is fair play as long as you can afford to pay her.
While many people would like to see Cyber come over to their side exclusively or just take her off the board entirely, most play by her rules. If they don’t, they not only risk Cyber’s wrath but face being ostracised by other members of the hero and villain community who realise that having a resource like Cyber on your side is far better than having her as an enemy.June 27, 2017 at 6:07 am #146138
This one’s just some stupid derpy humour.
The bizarre Atlantean mutant named Sal Monn (who the humans refer to as Salmon after a miscommunication) thinks of himself as a great villain. A would be world conqueror who is on the cusp of domination.
He is, in actuality, little more than a nuisance whose plans never amount to anything at all. He once attempted to invade the land but all he accomplished was knocking over a few sand castles before he had to dive back into the sea to avoid suffocating.
Salmon considers himself to be Riptide’s nemesis but his plans to best his hated foe fall very short of ever working and Salmon has actually helped Riptide on a number of occasions. Mostly accidentally of course. Rip just feels bad for the guy and plays along.
Maybe one day the great and powerful Salmon will achieve world domination but…probably not.June 27, 2017 at 6:53 am #146140
Great backstory. Kinda feel sorry for the guy. But then again, he probably deserves it. 😉June 27, 2017 at 9:38 pm #146151
I really like all of the character designs on this page. The simple backgrounds also work surprisingly well.June 30, 2017 at 9:43 am #146205

Thank. I wish I could say I chose to do that for reasons other than sucking at actual backgrounds but…July 1, 2017 at 3:04 am #146211
I like Stalker’s design, and I really like what you did for Cyber’s hair
