    Default Super 1 and the Amazing Team 0

    This is my CGChallenge - TEN entry.

    A crazy project where I had to develop, from concept to final image, 10 characters in less than 2 months in a part time regime.

    They form a very peculiar team of superheroes, which I'll be describing and showing in more detail during the next days.
    The project consisted on the of a fictitious comic book.

    It was an ambitious project but extremely fun to do. It can always be better but it was a satisfying result.

    Great characters. I had a look at the wip shots at cgsociety, really like the concept.....and they're not game models.

    This is just too awesome!

    Love everything about it. The little old lady cleaning the robot is perfect.

    Thanks Pride and Father O.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Here are the profiles for the characters in the next image:

    El Dorado - A former mexican Wrestler who was born with a bacteria in his bone structure, that processes bone and turns it into gold.

    This fact had several consequences. A gold bone structure made him extremely heavy so he had to develop extreme strength to be able to move like a regular human.

    On the other hand, being so heavy, even has a baby, his mother quickly became incapable of lifting him up. That lack of motherly contact, made him a very needy person, with a tendency to violence and destruction in order to get attention.

    Flash - The fastest sloth in the universe. So fast you'll rarely see it move.

    Haha, great back story! I suppose he'd also have to be extra tough with all the low-lifes out there hunting him down for his bones.

    Thanks everyone!

    Here is another superhero character from Team 0:

    Gill - 50% shark, 50% lawyer and 0% human.

    In charge of all the legal Damage Control, associated with the usual super hero activities that tend to destroy many properties.
    There have been some cases where evil is stopped exclusively through legal action, but when that's not the case Gill also has other talents that make him a valuable member outside the court.

    Thanks again guys!

    Santis: Its not Consuela but that was the main reference.

    Here is another one:

    P.R. - The Public Relations guy of the team. He has the power to be extremely persuasive, but only if he's smoking. It doesn't really matter what he's smoking as long as he inhales the smoke.
    So, due to all the non-smoking laws, most of the press conferences take place outdoors no matter how dangerous it might be or how bad the weather conditions are.

    Nice one, but it looks VERY similar to the dude from Eat 3D tutorials.

    Nice work. Don't see the similarity myself, Faircat.

    Thanks everyone!

    Here'e the next member of Team 0:

    Octavius - An octopus like alien which came to Earth in pursuit of an enemy of his own kind. After joining forces with our heroes in order to eliminate that that threat he decided to express his gratitude by staying on our ocean rich planet and becoming a member of Team 0. Though his true motivations are much darker than that. He intends to study our protectors in order to find their vulnerabilities so he can plan the perfect invasion and change our planet's name to Water.
