Character Contest 47: Weather, Weather Everywhere

First entry, El Shamal is a supre-villain in my meta-verse. Some background about my meta-verse. The majority of the heroes and villains were my Champions and GURPS Supers characters. I was an active gamer when I was in junior high and high school. Which was… well, before today.

El Shamal was the dictator of a Persian Gulf Emirate who also controlled the wind. In my original story, he invaded a neighboring emirate. It took a rogue squad of heroes to liberate the tiny nation and ultimately destroy El Shamal. The parallel is the First Gulf War of 1990-1991 not 9/11 and the War on Terror.

When I began to re-visit my meta-verse is when I found HeroMachine. Before, I used to rely on the artists in our RPG gang and others to draw my characters. Most of the time they would put me off, or draw something that was completely different than my vision. HeroMachine is a great tool to enhance your characters and draft new ones.
