    Thanks. I tried to make it look like he’s looking up into the sky as he flies up, but I don’t feel like it turned out too well.

    Alright, time to get back to my Anomalies series. Here’s the file on a target:

    Name: Patrick “Pat” McKinley
    Age: 38
    Height: 5’9”
    Weight: 275 lbs
    Powers: Able to manipulate gravity. Can control the personal gravity of practically anyone or anything, and can use this to create a form of what appears to be telekinesis.
    Threat level: Moderate – high
    Observations: Dr. Archer has noted that target’s abilities appear to destabilize when target is inebriated, which happens frequently. Thus, threat level varies depending on target’s state of intoxication. Caution is highly recommended.

    Great character, however there are a few things that you might want to take a look at. Firstly, his left arm is noticeably larger than his right and secondly, his right hand is in an impossible position in relation to his right arm, so maybe you might want to change either the hand or the arm here. But other than that, good work.

    Alright, I fixed it up a bit. How does this look?

    His left forearm and hand are still way too big compared to the rest of his body, but the right arm looks better.

    –Or you could move the bottle and forearm up just a bit, making it be his ‘shield arm’ position, where he is angrily fisting the bottle forward the onlooker. Add a shadow of the forearm and bottle on the torso?

    Hey there Machiners! I’m still here, just been lurking a little too much. But getting back to my Anomalies series, here’s young Jared Mitchell:

    Jared-Mitchell-1.png

    Dr. Archer recruited Jared to his team after studying his unique ability. Jared has the ability to project laser-like beams of energy from his hands, eyes, and sometimes even mouth after coming in physical contact with natural elements of the earth. However, all Anomalies have a weakness, called a drawback, and Jared’s drawback is that air does not count as a power source for him. Separate from that, his other drawback is that the further away and more out of contact he is from the elements, the more his power is unable to function properly. Thus, he is often seen barefoot, and will almost always carry a water bottle with him for a quick charge up.

    A very close friend of Dr. Archer’s and and the team’s closest ally, is the mysterious Anomaly known simply as Elijah.

    Elijah.png

    Elijah is one of the smartest and wisest men Dr. Archer knows, and is his greatest go-to for knowledge on Anomaly abilities. Born in 1750, Elijah fought against the British in the American Revolution, but tragically lost his life when he was stabbed in the heart during a duel with a British officer post-war. Elijah’s life changed forever when he burst back to life in the morgue, gasping for breath, with no pain and no trace of the fatal wound. He later discovered that he had the superhuman ability to heal from any wound. Further experiments, accidents, and discoveries led him to learn that he could also self-revive after death, not contract diseases or get drunk, and could even reattach and, sometimes, regrow, a missing limb or appendage. The most sobering of these new-found powers was the discovery that he also, by healing and rejection of disease, appeared to stop aging. He was forced to outlive everyone he loved: his wife, children, children’s children, grandchildren, even great-grandchildren. So as not to arouse suspicions, he would assume one identity after another, and whenever he was “killed,” he would again leave town, change his name, start over. He lived to see the invention of the car, the telephone, the computer, and so many other things we take for granted today. And with this long life he has lived came knowledge and wisdom; he has seen generation after generation of Anomalies all over the world. Pictured here is Elijah during what we today call the “Wild West.”

    *Sits up slowly* How many centuries have passed?!

    Gosh, it’s really been a while since I posted anything! I guess I let life get too much in the way. Well, I’m back! At least for now.

    To get the ball rolling again, here’s a WIP I’m working on. I’ve been watching a lot of medieval-themed movies lately, so this is inspired by the likes of Kingdom of Heaven, Arn: The Knight Templar, various Robin Hoods, and some of the English soldiers in Braveheart. So I won’t get busted for plagiarism, credit for the chain mail design goes to AMS, branching off of Suleman’s original work.

    Neat! I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily the best fit for chain mail, though, but perhaps some variation of lamellar.

    @Suleman thanks! What I was mostly going off of was AMS’ take on your Lady Knight. She had what looked like chain mail sleeves in his version. Was I wrong?

    I can’t speak for AMS, but to me those pieces are more like lamellar and/or scale armor, and that’s what I intended those to be in my original work.

    Chain mail would look a bit different:

     

    Going for that chainmail look in Heromachine, I’ve used another item, e.g. here. What I do is I mask it onto cloth items from the Tops and Legwear categories, with varying degrees of success.
