As you can see, there are some fantastic Martial Artists whose teams unfortunately did not make it into the top 16. But never fear, you can still see and vote for your favorites! No stories in the consolation rounds due to time and space constraints, but the images speak for themselves.
Good luck everyone! You can vote for your top five, but only once. Click on an image to see it at its largest size.
Wow, there’s some good ones here! 🙂
None of them are as good as the ones that got through though. Interesting that.
Yeah, some people just know how to do it. I’m still trying to come up with what I want but it’s a long process. I need more time to do this too.
Here’s the bio on my guy, for anyone who wants to read it:
Martial Artist: Crimson
Bio: The infiltation expert of the team, Crimson is a master of several forms of martial arts, and an unequalled hand-to-hand combatant. Thanks to his training, he is able to move silently, and get past any defenses. He also wears a uniform equipped with a light-refracting cloaking device, allowing him to become almost invisible in an instant.
That pose on Dr. Sancks is fantastic.
Here’s the bio
Valerie the vampire and Hillary the werewolf
when Valerie and Hillary were walking home form the midnight bash party ,while nearly half a mile away form their house
they been separately attack by two different mythology creatures Valerie was attacked by a vampire while Hillary was being devalued by a hungry werewolf.
when the furious attack was over both realize they had gain special powers ,their lives had been change.
Valerie had gain the powers of flight,super speed and strength
Hillary had gain the powers of animal instincts.
@Kaylin88100: I somewhat agree, but there are a few here I really like, possible even more than a few in the lower tier of the Winner’s Bracket: especially Purple Pentagram and Quicksand (with TOOL’s overall concept being one of my faves).
@Superfan1: Cool Pose: I can’t help but think: ‘Carrot Top on the Attack’ taking his frustrations out on a Heckler in a Comedy Club!
Tiger Dao’s Bio:
Martial Artist: Tiger-Dao:
Tiger-Dao is the Grand Martial Artist of the Tiamat Triads; he is a master of Hei-Hu-Quan (Black Tiger Fist) and Fu-Jow-Pai (Tiger Claw System) Kung Fu, both of which focus on maximizing one’s external powers. In weapon use, he specializes in Flying Claws and Tiger Hook Swords. Tiger-Dao’s ability to fight his way out of trouble has put him in close proximity with the Opium dealing Wolves of the Dark Triads and the Opium producing Bengal Tigers of India. Some wonder if he has gotten too close to the Opium Trade and if that trade has made its way into his veins…
I also like Shadow a lot.
Brons – I’m not sure how practical a boob window is on armour, but I like it all the same
Cliff – nice setting
Hyperanthropos – it’s my boat 🙂
Kyle – cool pose
Skybandit – he looks handy
superfan1 – bam!
Trekkie – nice action shot
Xion Unborn – awesome
@Superfan1: Nice use of the forums for that pose! 😉
Yeah, I have to say, this is one of my weaker ones. I was going for some kind of martial arts pose but it was really hard to get right. I’ll get it eventually. Just have to keep trying.
Glad people like mine, Mercwithamouth’s stood out to me as well. Good luck all.
TEAM: Tsunami Force
REAL NAME: Unknown
POWERS: Ninja trained Martial Artist
His mutant power seems to be his knowledge of almost any martial arts form along with his
Speed, dexterity, higher endurance and constitution.
Various martial arts manuevers include:
Hide in Shadows,
All Around Sight,
All Around Sight,
Hallucinagenic Smoke capsules to assist coming and goings.
HISTORY: Very little is know about Oni other than he is presumed to be an orphan and was trained by an assassin organization, but somehow managed to break free from it.
Oni took the image of the demon Oni to strike fear in his foes. He was the last member to join Tzunami Force, invited by Tek.
Oni is a mystery, rarely sharing his background with his group.
Due to the Kami’s use of the Cerebral Enhancer Oni could Blink – Teleport short bursts.
Thanks for the kinds words Frevoli. I admit I did this one first of all five entries and really liked him.
alphaalpharomeo – very clean, love the colors, the web adn over all costume design
Kyle – I love the girl’s leaping pose!
Xon Unborn – I really love the colors and the scarab and wave designs
If anyone is interested in Zero:
The Young Mutants
The Young Mutants exist in a world where most of the superhuman population has been exterminated, leaving few super powered beings behind. Mutants are hunted and dealt with as they are discovered. Most are quietly disappeared by Homeland security as potential terrorist threats.
The Young Mutants are second generation heroes, children of the Atom, second generation X-men
Zero is the son of Agent Zero and Psylocke. He inherited virtually all of his abilities from his father – he is super-humanly dexterous, graceful, and quick. He has trained heavily in several forms of marital arts with some of the worlds foremost experts. He is accomplished with Hands or blades, but prefers firearms.
I believe my gadgeteer finished last in the opening round. Drat. I’m still having fun. Even in this consolation bracket, there are some real good characters.
As the contest progresses, I will post links to my vanquished entries. Here is my Martial Artist: King.
@frevoli: Thanks for noticing.It is my hommage to the movie: “It came from beneath the sea” from 1955 with Kenneth Tobey, Faith Domergue. The creature effects were made by the one and only Ray Harryhausen!
@trekkie: Great action shot. Wish I had thought about that.
Anyway, here is my character’s bios:
Agent James “Jim” Kanahele; Son of a Native-Hawaiian and a Chinese-American. Since his father had a job as a goverment official and his mother came from a wealthy background, Kanahele’s life is not excatly a “from-rages-to-riches” story. He still had to overcome great social prejudice and prove his worth as a soldier during WWII. Jim succeeded with great dificulties into entering the FBI. He is an exceptional fighter, skilled in the Filipino martial art Eskrima and Japanese Jujutsu. The eternal struggle between trying to fit in the world and remembering his roots, puts Agent Kanahele under great stress. Having a good sense of humor, he does like the bamboo: he bends, but never breaks.
In case anyone is interested:
Malachite, aka Marlene Brackett is an expert fighter. Trained in wushu (the fighting style David Caradine popularized in Kung Fu) she’s also an expert in Karate and both western and eastern swordfighting styles.
Personally I think some of these are just as good as the ones that went through, some are better, some not so much, it’s all just opinion.
King -“Damning Eyes”(atomic punk)
Scarlett -“Red Gang”(brons)
Oni -“Tsunami Force”(cliff)
Shadow -“Crimson Cyndicate”(jamesinchains)
Quicksand -“Sand Vipers”(tool)
Quicksand -“Sand Vipers”(tool)
@MartianBlue, thanks, it really means a lot coming from a Power User such as yourself.
@TOOL (22): I have to agree with MartianBlue. Sand Vipers is one of my favorites too. I think your Gadgeteer design was great too but I found the wrench insignia shapes in the background distracting and made it hard to evaluate the piece as a whole. I took the liberty of erasing them for myself and I must say it improved my opinion of the piece. You should have been a contender!
@dblade, I was trying to make like a wrench boomarang, kinda like the one my character has in six gun shooter i think its called, its a FB game. I always seem to come up with a good idea but either go too far or not add enough. Thanks for the liking though. Check out the rest of the tem sometime.
