DiCicatriz and I have finished work on his prize for being the overall Friday Night Fights 3 champion. It's a duo of his original characters, Wraith and Howl. Here they are in black and white (click to embiggen any of these):
And here they are in color:
Since I work in Flash with layers, it's easy to export pieces of the overall image as well, which he went ahead and got:
I had a great time working on them, and luckily I think he was happy with the end result.
DiCicatriz has done some fantastic work over the years and has been very generous sharing his creativity. I'm glad I got the chance to pay that back a bit.
Awesome work, Jeff! And very nice of you to break it down into the various elements.
Awesome! Thanks so much, Jeff. I don’t think I can go watch the Avengers this weekend. My epic geek experience is at it’s threshold. Any further and I might just explode.
That is so awesome.
WOW! Awesome pics! Congrats, DiCicatriz.
….so, when is FNF 4?
Oh, and I forgot to add, DiCicatriz, can you post pics of your original characters?
jeff–did i ever say what i wanted for my prize for that pop quiz?
(what’s up with Howl’s golden nipples?)
@FRM: Howl’s got nipple piercings. He’s a little edgy like that. That one was my request to the artist, so don’t think weirdly of Jeff 😉
@ams: These are the reference pictures I sent to Jeff:
Thanks! Any bios or power descriptions?
No, I don’t have a prize listed for you for either of the two pop quizzes you have won (Easter Egg and Belt Buckle).
Those fists on Howler would be a great item asset. Did I mention these are very cool pics? KICK-ASS!!
Well if you’re that curious:
Howl and Wraith are both members of the Chaos Kids. Howl received his abilities in the same manner as the other Chaos Kids did, meaning unexpectedly and with the disastrous results of superhuman powersets being used by inexperienced people in real world settings (the alterations his body went through were incredibly painful and in his first outburst, Howl collapsed the building he lived in, burying and killing his boyfriend) He has the ability to project supersonic vibrations through his vocal chords, manifesting as a devastating supersonic scream. His body has enhanced durability and respiratory capacity to cope with the stresses of using his powers.
Wraith is a little more complicated… His original identity is that of Howl’s presumed to be deceased boyfriend, who was involved in the same event that gave Howl his abilities. Unbeknownst to Howl, Wraith developed the ability of astral projection and manifested an intangible/inaudible/invisible psychic extension of himself outside of his body. Unfortunately during the first use of this ability, Howl collapsed their building and destroyed his physical body. Wraith was able to survive, but only as a non-corporeal being of psychic energy unable to interact physically with his environment. He was believed dead for a while, but through some convoluted storytelling, Wraith comes to possess the body of the Chaos Kids’s first superhuman encounter: the psychotic Afghan telepath, Mindwarp (a former superhero who was driven insane by the accidental deaths of his original superteam, blamed Kid Chaos, and subsequently targeted the Chaos Kids in retaliation). During the confrontation Mindwarp’s spiritual essence is devoured by the deity inside of Kid Chaos and Wraith’s astral form occupies the empty vessel. Wraith loses the ability to project his astral form, but has access to the late Mindwarp’s formidable telepathic and telekinetic abilities. The happy couple is reunited and go on to further adventures with the Chaos Kids 🙂
Holy storytelling, Batman! Great concept. Where the hell are all your pics kept? Why are you hiding the Chaos Kids from us?
They’re all in the public photobucket link I posted in my Power User Profile 🙂 I have a whole subalbum dedicated to them.
Impresssive collection you have! I urge you to get some of these on the main forum to share your work with newcomers. Cheers!
I think of all of Hayao Miyazaki’s films I enjoyed Howl’s Golden Nipples the most
Very nice. Clean crisp images.
okay, jeff, for my first prize i would like a hoodie for HM3, you know, with a tight hood, zipper, and drawstrings. in pieces would be best.
You got it.
I have created a hoodie: http://forums.ugo.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=79737&d=1313386311
which hasn’t been added yet. Comes with hood separate from torso piece.
See FRM, your prize is already ready! Hey, I never said *I* had to be the one to draw it, did I?!
Think of me as Jeff’s Left Hand. 🙂
that’s great, but the hood could be tighter and lower over the face.
Please send me a link to a picture of exactly what you’re looking for.
Great concept and execution. I gratulate also for DiCicatriz and Jeff.
actually, forget what i said that hoodie fits my uses fine.
Unless you’re visiting the Middle East. 😉
You sure? I don’t mind doing a second one at all, I just need a visual reference so I am sure I understand the way you want it. I’m happy to do a new version to go along with dblade’s, though.
well, i was thinking a hood position more akin to this
tighter like the second one would be best
