Longshot

I drew this a couple months ago for Project Rooftop, a site where artists can submit superhero redesigns. It's probably gonna be a long time before they show it (especially since they recently featured someone else's version of Longshot), so I thought I'd give you guys a peek right now.

GDG,
You should have reimagined her as a woman, like Starbuck.
Thanks,

Thanks, folks :) CE - you're right, that would've been kinda cool to do Longshot as a woman. Ah well, somethin' for next time. heh

Heya Grant...

I've been watching Project:Rooftop since they had that reworking of The Spectre... I have a lot of respect for that site, but I have to admit... ilike your Longshot better :P

Hey Grant, I love your take on Longshot! The military look really fits the whole rebel leader aspect of his character. And the grin on his face totally nails his carefree spirit. The braclet blade holsters are a good idea too. Cool style!

Nice one!

you got it wrong baby.

look.

longshot's powers FAIL if he is not following his INNOCENCE.

you gotta step off the cap tip. he's not cap. he quits all the time.

and to give you more insight fanboy,
he kills that little dog. that little dog is evil. it followed him to the x-universe from the mojoverse. it's gog, the magic-sucker. eventually 'shot gives the thing all the magic it can take and it BURSTS.

i think that most people don't understand longshot.
he's got hollow bones. he can't really do that slugfest stuff. but you can draw.

and for god's sake
blow them all off and give the mullet back.

what's it about if not character?

good luck though, kid.
