The Widow

Here is the leader of The Web, the terrorist group I posted last week, The Widow. I tried a lot of different color schemes for her greens, reds, purples, ect... but a friend suggested trying her in just black, grey and white and I think it works pretty well. Critiques are welcomed.

The Widow is an immortal who was born in Atlantis when it was still a continent in the Atlantic ocean. She began as a common girl who caught the eye of one of the royal family and within months was married to the king himself. She started an uprising when she assumed control over Atlantis after killing her husband. She destroyed Atlantis and herself when she activated a doomsday device. But she didn't die, she was resurrected. Again and again she was reborn and each time she would try to assume control over what she thought was hers. Ahhotep I- founder of the eighteenth dynasty in Egypt, Fu Hao military general and high priestess of the Shang Dynasty, Sarmatian queen Amage during the 4th century B.C., Julia Domna empress and wife of Roman Emperor Lucius Septimius Severus and Morgan Le Fey half-sister of King Arthur are just a few of the names she has had through the millennia.

Now just as in Atlantis she was reborn as a peasant girl who caught the eye of the warlord in China named The Dragon Lord. After some years as one of his many wives she was able to kill him (as well as his other wives) and take control of his empire as The Widow.

The World Wide Web

Originally the Circle of the Dragon created by The Dragon Lord in the early 1920's, the group had been recently taken over and changed by his 137th wife, now called The Widow, when she killed him. Now called The Web, it boasts some of the most technologically advanced systems and soldiers the world has ever seen. The groups only goal is world domination through fear and intimidation and they have made it clear they will not stop until their goals are met. The Widow herself has not been seen in public but her soldiers and operatives are shown below.

The first of the Widow's soldiers is her best and most feared warrior, Wolf Spider. Her second in command, he is always by her side and is only sent out on the missions of the most importance. He commands the Huntsmen the main infantry of the terrorist group.

The Huntsmen are the infantry of The Web. Armed with Kinetic Blasters and the most sophisticated body armor and gear, they are a force feared throughout the world.

The general of the air infantry is Dragonfly. Once a respected pilot who was crippled during a crash, he was brought to The Widow and genetically altered, and given a suit so he can fly at speeds exceeding mach 3. With his ability to generate heat blasts that can melt steel like butter he is by far the most feared flyer in the skies.

The Fireflies are the air-force of The Web. Armed with Heat Blasters and housed in a suit capable of high altitude maneuvers and super sonic speeds, the Fireflies can handle most fighter jets in the air.

Last is The Widow's spy/assassin, Spiderwasp.

Atlantis rising

Just some sketches of my villains from Atlantis cause as everybody knows... you gotta have Atlantian villains or nobody will take you seriously. Im trying to go in a different direction than just some humanoids with blue skin or looking like Abe Sapien from Hellboy. The idea is that Atlantians are a very diverse race with some looking like jellyfish, reptiles, and fish. And when they are not in their city they move about in exoskeleton suits designed for their particular class sect. Still in the eraly stages so...

More villains than you can shake a stick at

Last week a posted a sketch of a character of mine called Dragokin, here is the finished product.
He belongs to a group of superhumans who work for the highest bidder, Force Inc. Bodyguards, thieves, sabotage, ect... Force Inc. is the group you trust to get the job done!

Dragokin son of a Celestial Dragon gone bad.

Watts the living lightning bolt.

Headcase the madman with vast mental powers.

Shellshock, a mercenary with an armored suite capable of creating earthquakes.

And Sludge, second generation baddie with a specialty for industrial sabotage.

Its a big group so I'm still working on some of them. Thanks for lookin'


Feel a STORM coming?

So I wasn't completely happy with my STORM agents before. The head gear was too "Nighthawk", so I wanted to go with the hooded look I had for them a ways back. Top are the officers, middle is infantry, and the bottom is heavy artillery. More baddies on the way...
