Can-do m8, your evening good for you?
That should work fine. I guess message me here or on Facebook to work out a specific time?
I'll give you a shout on messenger when I'm up.

Just finished making something kinda cool. I've been in need of something I could easily show people when they ask what my comic is about, so I made a page of profiles for the six main characters.

Oh yeah I'm working on a superhero comic called The Challengers in case you're new to this thread. I came up with the idea in sophomore year. Of high school. Ten years ago. Gonna make it soon I swear.

Nice job. I look forward to someday reading your work. Best tip I can give you is to storyboard with some very rough sketches and just get going, it only gets made when you're making it and the storyboarding can help you plan how many panels you need for whatever. Good luck, and don't procrastinate on it.

Still really love your characters, man! I should redraw Trace, or maybe draw any of the others. Whenever you do make your comic, do know that I'll be reading from issue 1. <3

This is a very strange and specific thing for my brain to hyper-focus on but since Adam was listed as Korean specifically now for the rest of them I'm like "o **** where is Surge's family from? Mexico? Venezuela? WHICH ONE OF THE EUROPEANS ARE FROM FRANCE AND WHICH ONES ARE FROM HUNGARY??????"

....im mostly joking but also legitimately curious

I really dig the UI look of the profiles in addition to the portraits. Good stuff

I kind of glossed over the fact that Adam is the only one I listed as having such a specific heritage. I actually did have more specific family origins in mind for each character, but when I was researching different ethnicities and peoples and family names and such, I kinda just stopped and wondered if anyone would really care about how specific I was trying to be. But I guess the answer to that question might be a yes.

- Adam's mother is of Korean descent and his father is of English decent. His surname is hyphenated, obviously.
- Hector is probably Scottish due to his red hair and surname.
- Surge is of Mexican descent.
- Thorn... Irish or Gaelic descent maybe? I rarely think about his human side since that's the less interesting half of him. To me at least.
- Jewel and Trace, I actually thought of them maybe being Slavic in descent, but I couldn't find any Slavic surnames that I felt were fitting to their characters, so I just listed them as vaguely "European" for now. I gave them the surname "Whitman" as sort of a placeholder name quite a while ago, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it but after a while it just kind of stuck. "Whitman" is an English surname FYI.
