Siberian Tiger by action figure aficionado, Nick Rega. An alternate-G.I. Joe timeline creation of a super sniper for the Oktober Guard. He's got some sort of quantum phase relativity sniper rifle doodad that annihilates the target at theoretically before the trigger is even pulled. It's one crazy ass gun. Sketch for NYCC 2012.
Bloodwulf - "an alien bounty hunter from the planet Luap'ur where he lives with his multiple wives and brood of children. He craves a life of action, however, and is always ready and willing to leave his quiet, domestic life behind for grand space adventures."
Work and Family. Just in time for Thanksgiving.
4-Lom, the bounty hunter?! You probably only knew about 4-Lom, the financial advisor and CPA. There are more 4-Loms in heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your hokey religions and ancient weapons. Find out more HERE
OHOTMU Reduxe: TORPEDO - Color assist from the Prime MInister of Coloring, Nick Filardi. Not sure if the new headgear makes any more aerodynamic sense than the original, but let's say it's better for steering. Those things on his arms and legs were nuclear turbines, so I made them more turbine-y. Torpedo's getup is made from the same technology as Rom's Spaceknight gear, so I tried to get him to look a little more like they were made in the same space factory.
I posted the drawing before on the blog, but here's the whole getup for OHOTMU
Marvel Comics' Blue Eagle. I haven't read enough Squadron Supreme to know this guy's story, but for some reason I picture him being an agro madman. Like a Judge Dredd with wings. But I'm sure he's actually just a swell fella with a bird suit.
Here he is in his regular Squadron Supreme getup:

I done Redid the Porcupine. A little bulkier, a little more quills and a few more buckles. Wanted to kind of give him some more personal protection from them quills he's shaking around at people. Some armor on the ribs, more face armor and some heavier clothes to maybe keep the deadly, deadly quills from poking around in places they shouldn't. Because of... y'know, "yeeouch"
I Drew up a redux of NITRO, with color assist from Master Nick Filardi, for the Handbook of the Marvel Universe Reduxe. Tried to amp him up a little bit and make his suit part containment suit when walking around, part shrapnel suit when exploding. Thought maybe his forearm and shin gauntlets would work towards directing explosive blasts or flight. Maybe... or maybe he just loves the gold. Who's to say?

Marvel Comics' Bluestreak. Not sure if it's the rocket skates or not, but I imagine this guy to be a real jerk. Somewhere below supervillain but above road hog. The limitations of being restricted to smooth, solid surfaces and the resultant chip on his shoulder might be what would make him a great hired bruiser. Or maybe he really just loves Saturdays in the park.
DC Comics' Blue Jay isn't a character that I am at all familiar with but I guess he's got quite a history. This redesign may be a little on-the-nose, but the original (with all due respect to creators Mike Friedrich and Dick Dillin) doesn't really seem to give him any attention one way or the other and ends up a bit of Hawkman-lite. So here's to a New 52 wave of Blue Jay comics. Because you demanded it!
