Thank you! Glad you like the colouring; I was trying to keep the colour schemes of the squadmembers cohesive.

Cork up the champagne, gentlemen. This one may actually survive.
Glad to see you’re still awesome. I especially like Xero; that hair is amazing.

Finally finished this group! I was planning to add two more members, but I’m pretty sure that would set my laptop on fire.
Thanks a lot, man, I appreciate it 🙂
Great start, man! You’ve got some solid designs there.
Sweet! I really like villain designs that aren’t afraid to add a spot of colour.
Outstanding lighting effects, there.
Thanks, Vectorman! I’ve got to say I’m pretty pleased with it, myself.
Portuguese light infantry
From left to right:
First ranger Bak Eun-soo
Rangers are commonly recruited from allied partisan or guerilla units. They provide their designated units with often vital information in regards to the local terrain and hostile forces while also acting as a link between the unit and the civilian population.
Chief Surgeon Lúcio Prado Calixto
Specialized medical personnel were experimentally introduced into the Portuguese army during the Second Imperial War of 1847. Portuguese army surgeons are highly trained in providing medical care to injured soldiers and are rarely directly targeted by hostile fire due to their reputation for treating enamies as well as comrades.
Combat Mage Osvaldo Ruiz DiasFirst
It takes at least ten years to train a halfway decent combat mage, but the investment is well worth it. Combat mages are extremely highly valued troops; they can summon spirits to act for them, conjure up mists to obscure terrain, astrally sense the location of hostile forces, read the minds of prisoners or lob fireballs at entrenchments. Because of this they wear no specials markings to reveal themselves as astrally gifted, since unlike the surgeons any enemy soldier with half a brain would do well to consider them top priority targets.
Portuguese army badges
Every Portuguese soldier is given a bronze badge that signifies their rank. These are a few of them.
Top row: Ranger (Dragon), Chief Engineer, Sergeant
Second row: Combat Mage, Engineer, Demolitionist, Lieutenant
Third row: Surgeon, Grenadiers’ Corporal, Munitions Carrier, Grenadier
Fourth row: Chief Surgeon, Rifles’ Corporal, Mechanized Gunner, Rifleman
Awfully creepy set of characters! The costumes are well put together and simple, in that they’re not needlessly overwrought. Great job!
Looks awesome! The symbols behind them is a clever addition; they work very well with the costumes.
Only nitpick I have is the face of the sister to the left, it looks a bit… awkward. I’d lower the eyes a little bit and flip the nose, the shadow of it doesn’t really fit the pose.
I like what you’re doing with backgrounds.
I like it! Great first post.
The University of Kar-Sharyk
When Kar-Sharyk chose to establish his first aetherial laboratory on the Cliff of Persh he could hardly have imagined that it would eventually evolve into the most highly respected magical university on the Eastern Continent. These days Kar-Sharyk is considered to be the greatest Aetherial researcher the world has ever known, but back then he was thought of as just another dabbler in the magic arts, conducting his mediocre experiments with the usual delusions of grandeur that comes to a young sorcerer. The turning point came when he took in a group of exiled pixie drones to work as his assistants. As the years went on it became evident that the pixies not only had a surprisingly long lifespan, when they were safe from being picked off by birds of prey, but they also had a natural talent for academics. With the help of his acolytes Kar-Sharyk quickly rose through the ranks of the Saphire Magocracy, and was chosen as Saphirical Archchancellor at the age of 89. As he lay dying just a few years later he charged his pixie apprentices to continue his great work.
Now, 700 years later, they are as diligent in pursuing that task as ever before.
Prime Auxiliary Shurpi
Of the hundreds of pixies who were tutored by Kar-Sharyk himself only four remain, and Shurpi the Observant – the oldest of them – is the head of the university, as he has been for the last 200 years. Despite his venerable age and small stature Shurpi is a force to be reckoned with. He has survived hundreds, maybe thousands, of assassination attempts by the Opal Dynasty, ambitious faculty members and a multitude of Pixie queens who still consider him and his ilk apostates and traitors.
Great use of tattoos, there.
Just wow. I might need to steal that idea of mainly using gradients to define a character.
Also, again: wow.
