The Dream Coalition colored by captblitzdawg The Dream Coalition colored by captblitzdawg
Here it is- I suppose I could keep adding to it and tweaking it. Hopfully it will be appreciated by those whos work is behind this piece. From the top clockwise is the high-flying Bluejaye by :icongwdill:, followed by the hammer-swinging, demon-smashing Christian by :iconvagabondx:, then the athletic Sword, created by :iconcaptblitzdawg: (me); and finally, Gilead Samson- the muscle of the group- by :iconhulkdaddyg:.

This was drawn as four seperate pin-ups (each on 9X12 paper) then placed together in Publisher and colored as one large piece using GIMP 2.6. The lettering is Flyboy from Blambot.com I did make some minor creative changes to some of the characters- the eye shape on Christian's mask, Gilead's top I turned white instead of black, and Bluejaye I added another light blue stripe to his outfit. All characters are copyright and property of their respective creators.

Thanks- although it started as four seperate pin-ups. I laid it out so they are together in the shot, but they are distinct. Thank you for looking and for the comment. It's always appreciated!

Not a problem. Is Gilead a Nephilim or is he something else new in the half angel- half human combo? I did an outline for a story once called Nephilim Rising where a descendant of THE Paul Bunyan discovered he was from a line of Nephilim and he learned there were others like him in the world, but they were not all nice people- some were conspiring to conquer the world.

As the offspring of an angel and a human technically he is a Nephilim, however they were known to be the evil that led to God sending the great flood. Gilead has had a few unique experiences that set him apart from ancient evil ones. I have recently introduced his mentor Samra who was one of the rare non evil ones who survived.

Hey! This is really cool! I was planning to do something similar using all the Christian characters I've encountered. Just so you know I changed the white to black on his costume so the G reads better, also it tends to look like a baby's bib in white and bothered me. You weren't the only one to like the white better though. He also has no belt, but all in all it's cool that you would draw my guy and place him with this awesome group. I don't know if you plan to take this any farther, but there are a few proportional problems. Gilead is HUGE. He is 7 feet tall and is apparently in front of a flying Blujaye which makes him seem reeaaally small or Bluejaye is really big. Also to note Gilead is not the team muscle, he's the leader. He is the strongest and most powerful, but the muscle of my team is really Neijia. :) Thanks a lot for including me! I'm going to add you to my "to do" roster! :salute:

Hey, Gary-
Glad you liked it. I thought Gilead was behind Bluejaye (I'll have to work on that!). And on this team-up, he is definitely the muscle of the group- he may well be the leader, too! I get the feeling Christian is the kind you lay out an objective for and he goes, Bluejaye and Sword are team players all the way.
The belt I added because I thought I saw it on some versions of the outfit, plus it helped "thicken" him up without me making him look fat. Thanks for the comments, Gary! I really appreciate it.

Ah, I se he's the muscle of THIS group. That's cool. He's also half angel like Bluejaye. I don't mind at all the costume changes, I just thought I'd let you know.

Thanks, Jake! Yeah, it would be fun to do a story with these four guys- although I get the feeling Sword would be caught several times saying "WHY does this kind of stuff happen to me?!"
Thanks for commenting and for the fave- I appreciate it!

Thanks, Kent! I hope it turned out in a way you guys would've liked. It was rejected by the ComicArts group. They didn't say why, either *sigh*

Anyhow, thanks also for the fave on this- it means a lot, man!

#ComicArtNetwork where a bunch pros and bunch of non-pro guys like me can post their stuff. I did put the picture in the members folder which takes stuff automatically. I just thought I'd try for the features folder, but it didn't make the cut.

Hm, think it was because of the subject matter being pro-Christian heroes?

I wondered the same thing- I mean it is obvious they are comic-book styled heroes, why can't they be Christians?

Hello I'm from :iconthe-oc-maniac:

The characters are nicely drawn - every ripped muscle in place ;D The anatomy looks good and natural (if of course the where dehydrated and so on - but for a superhero top notch :D )
Anatomically only the wings could use some work because they are drawn without perspective - and the should correspond to the body placement of Bluejaye (the wing on our left should be seen at a different angle (and at least it should be slightly smaller than the other wing)

What botheres me here is the overall composition of thecharactes. I know that they where done as seperate character drawings and maybe thats why it's like that. The composition is too loose even for a poster type drawing. You're leaving too much space filled with not so interesting background. To help it maybe Sword could be bigger and higher - it would close the space a bit.

Next thing is the typography - it doesn' really go well with the drawing. Maybe it should be above their heads in a more rectangular shape (not squarish) like for example here [link]

If Sword would fill the gap the text made it could very well be placed above them. The colour of the text isn't really working here - maybe the same blue as their costumes would work better. And please no white smudgy background xD It will look better with the sky as it's only background :)

I hope my critique will come in handy :D

Thanks so much. I agree I wasn't pleased with the color of the type and having to put the white behind, but it seemed to give it the pop needed to make it visible. I didn't try blue- I was afraid it would be too much in the picture. Glad to know it isn't. I will try to go back on my history and see if I can make some of the recommended changes.

I appreciate the comments! Thanks for taking your time on this.
