The Wolf: Charles Canis (the only character who I came up with an alter ego for) was a soldier in World War II, stationed in Europe. On the way back to the U.S., his boat crashed onto an island, leaving Canis as the lone survivor. This island was, believe it or not, essentially a temperate forest. The island also had a ton of wolves. The first thing Canis did after taking a drink from a stream that ran off of the island was to build a shelter in the treetops to stay away from the wolves. Little known to him, the river granted its drinker immortality (though the effects are only on humans. He managed to avoid being bitten by the wolves for many decades. One day, his signal fire finally attracted attention from a boat bringing goods to Boston. Just as Canis was about to board, a wolf bit him. Unbeknownst to Canis, the wolves of the island had a bite which gave the person bit mostly controlled lycantrophy. However, when first bit, one does turn into a werewolf after a period of time. For Canis, the end of this period just happened to be shortly after the ship pulled into the harbor. The captain had actually been sent by the Swordsman, who knew about the island, and had heard that passing ships had seen smoke for decades, but none had come. The Swordsman spread rumors to keep anyone but his ships from going to the island. He told the “captain” to bring in Canis, hoping to, train him in controlling his lycantrophy if he had been bitten, and in using his immortality to do some good if not. So when Canis transformed, the “captain” shot him with a tranquilizer and summoned a portal to transport both himself and Canis to the Swordsman’s camp. The Wolf can control not just when he transforms, but how much he transforms (the transformed version attached is well over halfway along in the process, and is the form usually brought on in the first transformation, and a slightly less transformed form than the one brought on by sudden bursts of rage. Canis usually transforms just to the point of fangs and claws. A full transformation is a barely anthropomorphic wolf (unless the user of the power stays in full form for too long, in which case the user becomes a full on wolf forever.))September 11, 2017 at 12:32 pm #147619
Father Time: At some point in the ’40, although the exact when and how is unknown, Charles Saturn somehow ended up with the ability to teleport, travel through time (in both directions, although traveling into the future is extremely complicated), reverse time, travel through dimensions, and slow down time (although not speed up time, completely stop time, or fast forward through time.) He was a member of the original All-Stars (late ’50s, ’60s, and early ’70s), and, despite his age, still fights crime. He and the Warrior are the only surviving members of the team, and both have been made immortal by the waters of one of the “fountains of youth” (actually rivers, not fountains. One was on the isle of the wolves, where Canis was stranded, but it was not the only one. The insignia is an hourglass, but is partially blocked by Father Time’s staff.September 17, 2017 at 4:28 pm #147676
You might try borrowing poses from the ‘Custom’ branch of the forums to see if you can ‘destandardize’ your work a bit. It’s definitely time to add simple poses in. Even just a plain, sky-colored panel will allow you to hide masking circles behind. You can build limbs / fingers out of heads for the tough poses.

Thanks for the suggestion to borrow poses, HerrD. How exactly does one create complicated poses? Also, what exactly are you suggesting about the backgrounds?September 17, 2017 at 4:50 pm #147680
Well, obviously not complicated poses right yet, but how do you do poses other than standard poses?September 20, 2017 at 8:26 am #147713
Slight update of the Wolf. I will eventually play around with poses, and more with shading, but the next few posts will be ones that I have already made, but haven’t posted yet.September 20, 2017 at 8:30 am #147716
Chronos: Father Time, who was for the longest time known as the most upstanding superhero, started letting his dark side get the best of him. To maintain his image, he agreed to have a clone made of him that would receive the negative aspects of his personality. Father Time retained the positive aspects, and both received neutral aspects. The Warrior’s superhero organization, who also made the clone, kept the clone under maximum security, and blocked his powers to the best of their ability. And yet, somehow, the clone was able to escape, and did so without his powers. So now Father Time and the other heroes are going up against an immortal, teleporting, time-controlling evil genius.September 20, 2017 at 8:32 am #147718
The Olympians exist in this universe, but, unlike my previous version, are not a team. Here is the current Poseidon (father of the Electric Eel in this universe)November 6, 2017 at 8:17 pm #148280
