Making Some Superheroes (Conculsion)

Hey, remember these guys?


After tinkering with them for almost an entire year (!), these two crimefighters are finished. They might evoke a certain duo known for their dynamism, but are actually an entirely different solemn guardian of the night and his boy sidekick.

(Did I say boy sidekick? We sure about that? Hmm…)

These characters are from an upcoming novel. I translated the writer’s descriptions of the characters, filling in details here and there to present what I hope are modern takes on classical superhero designs. I was looking at the work of comic book artists Cully Hamner, Chris Sprouse, and Stuart Immonen, with an eye toward the costume design work of Adi Granov and Bob Ringwood.
