Metcarfre. A genius biochemist, he made millions consulting for the Superhero Organisation Association working to identify the many chemical and biological agents, compounds and molecules that get brought in or used on the heroes.
He became unsatisfied with the passive approach to solving problems and, using his knowledge and skills, he concocted a draught which would cause his muscle and bone tissue to become much, much stronger.
It was a resounding success, and it - in combination with greedy corporate entities - revealed that Metcarfre actually possesses a superpower; he willallwaysretain his full faculties and personality. The human test subjects which the concoction was tested on turned into wild, raving monsters. Metcarfre’s first test as a hero was subduing these unfortunates until the effects of the compound wore off - about three hours.
I have no idea whether I have the cut and hang of the suit right on the hulked out version since I have no reference images for that kind of thing. I just had to guess.
I was also getting a bit tired of drawing by the time I got to it, so it probably doesn’t look so great, at least when compared with the “normal” Met on the left. Oh well.
Fayili. Taught to master shapeshifting magic by the elves, Fayili can visibly become anyone she has met, or anyone she can imagine. The illusion dissipates if she is physically harmed, and some people are taken in more easily than others by the illusion.
The woven top was not actually as difficult as I had dreaded it might be, though it was still not easy. I also spent ages trying to get the powers to manifest properly.
I think my style is moving inexorably towards “realistic” and has at this point shed almost all of the cartoony elements. I don’t know whether I should try and bring them back in or let them drift further away. Is there a point where the two mix that my followers prefer, or one of the two extremes? I’m not sure how I feel about my style…
Vigafre, Funk Fu master. It’s unclear whether his dance techniques are magically infused or super powered, but it’s virtually impossible to hit him while he’s dancing and he never seems to get tired.

Speaking exclusively about the technical and visual aspects of this picture I feel like something with the multiply and overlay layers isn’t quite right. I can’t get the way the powers manifest to look how I think it should, no matter how I play around with the settings. So this will have to do.
