You might want to double check some wing anatomy. I'm pretty certain that isn't how feathers are arranged on wings.

I think I prefer this one to the other version. The claws on the boots always struck me as odd.

I like the wings the way that they are. Peregrine is likely right, but you also have to account for the fact that wings growing out of a human's back is quite unnatural. If going with bird anatomy you'd probably have to do something like the aracockra from D&D where the wings are attached to arms...

Thanks Bladewind... the wings are actually artificial and part of a harness that is part of her costume. I used a lot of reference pics of Eagle Wings trying to get the wings on the harness right... and they are a modern update of the wing harness created by the first Freedom Eagle (her grandfather). I was going for more natural colors of the artificial feathers to look like the American Bald Eagle (and thus part of why the helmet is white).

I'm gonna be re-doing the colors.... with a dark blue top and dark red boots. But I can't decide if i should add any eagle-like accents to the power gauntlets (like more pronounced talons that are retractable).

I'm starting to think that the energy Halberd should be more of a focus for the energy that the gauntlets are able to fire off... and thus cause people to think that it's the real weapon and not the gauntlets. But i'm not sure... and still trying to figure it out.

I have some new artwork that i've been working on for the past week...

Minuteman III: The latest incarnation of the Minuteman... this pose in this picture is based on a Hero Machine 3 picture of a modern version of the "Fighting Yank" that i found on Deviant Art, and I really liked the pose. So I used it in my design for the new Minuteman! I've yet to decide if he's the latest in the Hawthorne family line to carry the legacy, or a totally new character taking up the legacy in my Mutants & Masterminds RPG 2e campaign setting.

Chimera: Chimera is one of the characters from my home M&M RPG 2e F2F game, she's a shapeshifter who can turn into any animal that she's touched... something made easier thanks to her job as a Zookeeper & Veterinarian's Assistant!
Image

Bizarre: Bizarre is another of the characters from my home M&M RPG 2e F2F game, he's a Vampire/Atlantean hybrid-like creature (it's a very complicated background that came from the player's earliest superhero character). This is almost finished as what the player wanted (went through about six different sketches to get to here)... though there are a few of the sketches I plan on finishing for a picture of an NPC for the Freedomverse w/Marvel Universe & DCU elements campaign setting that I've been working on.

Danke!

I've studied the various pictures of Revolutionary War uniforms of the Continental Army, and the red facing & cuffs was the official uniform for the infantry. The light tan (or buff) facing and cuffs along with the waistcoat and trousers were reserved for generals and their staffs. it's amazing to find out that the early military combat uniforms were also their dress uniforms. as hard as it is today to believe that wearing such bright colors into combat shows how different the methods of war has become in the past century and half. gone are the days of maneuvering troops as a block so they can fire in barrages, and the bright colors allowed generals to know what unit was which so they could issue orders via flag signals and the like.

I've still not decided if the modern Minuteman is going to be a member of the Hawthorne family, or someone who has adopted the identity... though going with the rediscovered legacy would have some really good gaming opportunities for whom ever plays them!
