Welcome to another Penciljack Weekly Sketch Group!

If you have any ideas for a sketch group topic you'd like to see in a future Sketch Group, please PM me the details, and I will include them!
Weekly Sketch Group #269 Topics:
1. The Tick: LINK Draw ANY version of The Tick. "Spooooon!!"
2. Mythology: The 12 Labors of Hercules: LINK Draw your favorite, or ALL of the labors of Herc!
3: Hollywood Badasses: Kirk Douglas: LINK The original Spartacus. Vincent Van Gogh in A Lust for Life, Ulysses, The Vikings, and one of the most powerful movies I've ever seen Stanley Kubrik's: Paths of Glory (check it out if you haven't seen it!).
4. Original Character/Concept:
An (as yet) Un-named Superhero Team
The following characters stand together, “assembled”. Looking at them, Lance stands at forefront. Torrent and Say’Vek stand on his either side just slightly behind his shoulders. Directly behind him towers Jai, arms crossed, with forcefield shimmering around his body, grinning widely. Phil is leaning on Jai’s left side, right arm around Jai’s shoulders, Phil’s left hand holding a gun. Behind Torrent stands Grace, her back to the group, looking at us seriously. On the other side of her Crimson hovers about 3 feet above the surface. So it's kind of a triangle, an image that would look good on a cover of the team comic. Char descriptions follow:
LANCE: His weapons of choice are a short broad sword and a just-under-a-foot long staff with a round thingie at the end holding a purple glowing gem. He is pointing the staff at “us”, and the sword in the other hand ready to fight. He is average height, slim but broad shoulders, blonde short hair, blue eyes, just hit 40 or so. He wears a kind of a black pseudo-military uniform: t-shirt, vest with a gun strap and some pouches (only a couple, not 90’s OTT). So it’s kind of an urban fantasy character.
TORRENT: Late twenties, chin-long brown hair, conservative superhero outfit. It is more functional, i.e. we’re talking jacket and trousers rather than pyjamas and underpants. Subdued blue and green colours, a couple of lightning bolts here and there, and I like the DCNU collars )).
He has a crackling static electricity field around him, and in one hand he has a "lightning sphere in it".
SAY’VEK: She is about 7 feet tall, very skinny but quite muscly, with thin white fur covering most of her body. Though she is mostly snow-white we could maybe do some light brown or orange patterns in her fur. She has slits where a nose should be. She isn’t wearing much, essentially some form of clothing to cover her chest and groin/upper leg areas to appear civil. She has bow and arrows strapped behind her back, and she also wears a belt with (now) empty leather sheaths. In her hands she is holding daggers, she is tensed, slightly crouched and snarling ferally.
PHIL: He is thirty-something genius eccentric scientist. Tall, weedy, scruffy short black hair, wears glasses. He is armed with a short, thick, black gun. Also wears a labcoat, anything underneath is not important.
JAI: He is a former soldier in late thirties. Tall and heavy build, very short black hair, Indian ethnicity. Whenever I imagine him, I kinda see Luke Cage sort of clothes, but I don't want that, I want something unique about him. He is surrounded by a forcefield which kind of shimmers blue.
GRACE: She is a bit short, medium-length black hair neatly tied in behind her head, brown eyes, glasses. She wears a stylish business suit, very sexy, a naughty secretary kind of thing.
CRIMSON: She is a “human torch”y kind of character. She can change to and from fire form at will. Here her lower body is made out of fire, but from about mid-chest upwards show the human bit. Tha goes for arms as well, so the hand is aflame, and the shoulder bit isn't. Or maybe one hand is fully aflame and the other one isn't. She has long brown hair, and is in mid-30’s. The top bit that's not on fire is wearing a tight lycra-like costume of dark green and purple tones.
LanceCo Logo: The basic design is a lightly curved “L”, which straddles a golden circle with image of Earth inside the circle. Each of them who have a uniform (apart from Grace) has the insignia on it.
And there you have it, my fellow sketch-fans, a real panoply of topics to draw this week! Sharpen those pencils and sketch away mon amis!
