This is another character who is also an unlikely hero. The symbol changed a bit. But ether way, he’s from my horror comic and he’s the main character.

this is a teen who wants to help people by “fixing” things. He ends up making the situation worse. But people like his presence so they let him stick around. He may not fix their problem but he can fix their day.

Extraterrestrial forces corrupted the Earth, bringing extinction upon the human race. A small military group tried creating superhuman forces to fight the extraterrestrials. They're called the Chimera Squad and are made of humans whose DNA was genetically mutated to enhance them in many different ways. Dr Chimera His DNA is augmented in a way where he can take on any characteristic of any animal that he wishes for 24 hours. The problem is though, if he takes on their form for longer than that, the animal starts taking over his brain and his consciousness, which is why he needs to be careful.

Love the first two for clean powerful graphics . The intentionally limited palette, color washes, and shape distributions of the first and second images elicits a very satisfying Japanese screen printing vibe for me. Love your variation of shapes and distribution of hues in the second one, and well controlled value distribution and line in the first one!

I think it looks great as you are a beginner. I would suggest that you focus more on color, light and maybe later on anatomy as it's a more complex subject to really bring the life into your work.

Here are progress shots and references for my submission for the unexpected heros challenge , so mine were inspired by the drawing tools that i use often my Electric Eraser , Box Cutter and my Pentel Graph gear 1000 So ill start with the leader Graphite Angel he was the one who under went the most change while i made the drawing initially you'll probably notice he didn't have wings as i was drawing i realised he was the only one that was too plain looking he didn't have something to make him stand out thus the wings then later on i noticed the hair i had originally given him made him look timid he didn't have the valor and aggression of a true leader thus the change in hair and facial features These guys exist in the picture plane dimension so Graphite Angel is pretty powerful he can create virtually anything with his mind Box cutter is the muscle of the team his ability enables him to slice through anything even the fabric of their reality from time to time he has been known to be able to travel to other dimensions because of this ability he however refrains from doing this too much as it tends to leave weak after the travels the retractable blades he has stem from his bones Electric Easer is one of the few surviving members of the Easer race his power were always hunted down and imprisoned or killed because unlike Graphite Angel who can create anything Electric easer can wipe out anything in existence by a thought so in a way he keeps Graphite Angel from going overboard I
