Nice art Baron. The second Haywire is much closer to how I imagine the character. I still think he should be smirking though, but that's my idea, and he's your character.

I like to draw Haywire as dead serious; sort of like how you see pictures of the Monarch. It's only when you watch, or in this case read, that you realize he's a goofball.

I liked the serious look of Haywire coupled with the Comedian-like smiley face badge, made me smile anyways. It's good stuff, the first pose of Speed Freak is great.

yeah a guy in a lab coat, bowtie, and sporting a six shooter can't be all business.

this one I'm comfortable with pretty much all the way through on Speed Freak. The jumper is coming together; the pants could use a little more character (she does run after all), but the torso is just about there.

also...

I don't like drawing that utility belt, because I have different ideas for it everytime I render it. Love drawing that cape and cowel though; you can do so much with it.

hair is extremely important on her and right now I'm experimenting with Brody Dalle and a young Glenn Danzig for her look. I have to admit it's from listening to a LOT of misfits lately.

a halfway detailed/cartoony Haywire. (with the old trick popular with artists who draw joker of drawing one half of his face one way and another the other way)

Cool, BARON. I thought Speedfreak wore a metal bodysuit with swords in the forearms... oops, wrong Speedfreak.
