    Amy Atom was recently shown a Golden Age comic book, which featured another hero known for having an “Atomic Punch.” After seeing that, Amy designed a costume as an homage to that Golden Age character. Amy-Atom-vintage.png

    More new costumes for Amy Atom. Opinions and critiques welcome.http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-new-suit.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-new-suit2.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-new-suit3.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-new-suit4-.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-new-suit4.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-

    Edit: After looking at it more, I decided to remove the last alternate costume because the color scheme was too similar to the Silver Age Atom. Though no version of The Atom was my inspiration for Amy Atom, I do now notice the similarities between her and the Golden Age character.

    My first monochrome work. Have to play with the transparencies and shades more to not obscure the main figure.Amy-Atom-bw.pngAMY-ATOMFALLOUT2.pngAmy-AtomFallout-bw.pngAMY-ATOMFALLOUT2-1.pngAMY-ATOMFALLOUT.png

    I love that gray wash effect. And you’re right, the hardest part is shade and tone nuance, but you’re definitely on the right track. Nice work. A little trick I’ve adopted is to put a background rectangle between the foreground and background at about 10-15% gray with the alphas at about the same %. It gives the background an out-of-focus effect.

    Damn, that mushroom cloud is pretty freaking impressive!

    Also, RobM, that is a really good idea, and I may have to steal it someday Laugh

    Heh. Yeah. Amy Atom blasted the color cameras by accident. Liked her cameo in Artist Of War, btw. You write it or TheNate?

    @robm: Tried your idea, but I didn’t see the effect. maybe I did something wrong; I’ll try again.
    @stulte: Thanks. I’ve been messing round with this scenario for a few months. It’s such a powerful image, the hero silhouette walking out of the destruction in the background. Go back a few pages in this thread and I think I made a cover using that scene in my Spectacular Comics covers thread.
    @Herr D: No I didn’t write it, Nate did. I’m sorry to say I haven’t read it yet. I was trying to catch up from part one and haven’t gotten to that part yet.

    Try messing with the % gray and/or the alpha %s on the background rectangle. Also, I forgot to mention to do the cityscape’s line color as something like 50-55% gray. Here’s an example.

    OK, I got you RobM. Thanks again. Also, @Herr D, I read that segment of Artist of War. Pretty cool! I like how Nate kept the spirit of the character intact. RobM, how is this one?http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Moonstar-bw.png

    EDIT: This pic was done before I saw your latest comment, RobM.

    CODENAME: AMY ATOM
    TRUE IDENTITY: AMY LEWIS (note: Amy does not maintain a secret identity because, as she has stated about herself, “it’s hard to hide your identity when you have permanent flaming eyes.”)
    AGE: 24
    HEIGHT: 4′ 0″ (note: Amy is described as a dwarf, but she is more accurately a proportionate little person. The term “midget,” while formerly used to describe this condition, has of late fallen out of favor and is considered offensive.)
    WEIGHT: 200lbs. (note: Amy Atom has an incredibly dense molecular structure, which accounts for her surprisingly heavy weight, while her proportionate little body gives no hint of how much she really weighs.)
    POWERS AND ABILITIES: Amy Atom is a mutant, apparently able to draw energy directly from the radioactivity naturally occurring on the Earth. Amy’s body essentially functions as a living nuclear power plant. She does not tire, at least not physically, can go for long periods without eating, as her body is constantly absorbing radiation to energize itself, and it has been speculated that she may not need to eat at all, only eating out of habit. Amy is incredibly strong, in the Class 10-15 range. This means that Amy Atom can lift or press 10-15 tons. Her dense molecular structure makes her totally invulnerable. She is also immune to all forms of radiation poisoning, though not necessarily immune to ingested or inhaled toxins. (note: While Amy’s skin cannot be penetrated or bruised and her bones cannot be broken, nor can her internal organs be physically damaged, sufficient force has been known to cause Amy to feel pain. For example, Amy has been observed surviving a 50 story fall, only to get up complaining that it “hurt like hell!” Also, the element of surprise can catch Amy unprepared for some attacks. Her arch enemy, The One Armed Bandit, who has no super powers, but is a technical genius, has caught Amy off guard on several occasions with the various weapons built into his Sneaking/Battlesuit. Amy herself admits to taking the Bandit too lightly on their first encounter.) Amy is capable of firing concussive/destructive blasts from her hands, as well as her more recently discovered ability to fire optic bursts. (note: For some unknown reason, Amy will glow with a faint purple hued aura as she powers herself up. Also, her hand and optic blasts are of the same color. A possible explanation for the color of her eye bursts is that Amy’s irises are a lavender/purple shade. No explanation has been suggested as to why her hand blasts and aura are purple.) Amy can simultaneously emit and absorb vast amounts of radiation for offensive and defensive applications. She also has what she calls her “Atomic Punch,” which is basically just what it says, in that Amy Atom can deliver blows with the force of a nuclear devise. It has been estimated that Amy can easily match and surpass the combined destructive force of both the Little Boy and Fat Man atomic bombs used against Japan at the end of WWII. (note: Amy Atom has been observed to level a three block radius with a single punch in a battle against her radioactive antagonist, Half-Life. While the physical damage to the area was undeniable, there was no loss of life, as the area was evacuated before the combatants reached and Amy was able to absorb all the radiation her blows gave off, as well as absorb the radiation emitted by Half-Life to the point of rendering him powerless.) Amy has greatly enhanced vision and can see on a microscopic and possibly atomic level. A lesser know ability, or, more accurately, a specific use of Amy’s powers is that, because she doesn’t tire, she can run great distances at a sustained pace. While she is far from a super-speedster, Amy can run indefinitely maintaining a speed of 30 miles per hour. (note: The average human’s maximum running speed is approximately 25 mph.) Amy is very aggressive and an excellent hand to hand fighter, but sometimes her brashness tends to make her rush into a fray before fully assessing the situation. (note: Amy has been receiving training in battle tactics from Miss X, leader of the Urban Soul Patrol, as well as additional training in understanding the nature and science behind her powers from the members of The Cosmic Protectorate.)
    AFFILIATIONS: While Amy is not a member of any superhero team, she has on occasion allied herself with The Urban Soul Patrol when they need additional muscle. She is friendly with The Cosmic Protectorate and considers them her second family. She has received instruction from each of them in understanding the nature of, as well as the science behind her powers. Starchild, leader of the Protectorate, has given Amy instruction and guidance in controlling her new optic bursts. Arclight has taken to tutoring Amy in the nature and science behind her powers. Moonstar has been giving Amy special battle training in how to deal with flyers and the alien known as Black Hole has been instructing Amy in how to “listen” to the Earth to tap into the energy within the planet, essentially giving Amy a sort of limited, Earth bound version of Cosmic Consciousness. (note: Arclight has pointed out to Amy the importance of understanding her powers and has informed Amy that as atomic/nuclear energy is practically limitless, because radiation exists in all of nature and even in outer space, most notably the Van Allen radiation belts around the Earth, which could possibly be another source Amy can tap into, she has the potential to be one of the most powerful beings on Earth.)
    WEAPONS/SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: None. Amy uses no external weapons of any kind. She has a collection of unitard-like Kevlar battlesuits, designed by her mother, who designed the radiation suits she and her husband wear in their work as nuclear scientists in a secret research facility, with some aesthetic input from Amy. Amy has recently been seen mostly in an all black costume or her classic black & red. (note: Amy’s battlesuit does not provide her any type of protection and is made of Kevlar only as a material that could stand up to the rigors of battle.)http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Classic-Amy-Atom.-1.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Amy-Atom-Black-Suit-2.pnghttp://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/legacy/forum-image-uploads/wndbassplayer/2014/03/Black-suit-clseup.png

    Hey, I wrote another story featuring Amy Atom. You can read it here.

    I incorporated some hyperlinks to showcase some of Amy’s alternate costumes. I also read her profile and noticed a possible weakness for her.
