So here is a picture a buddy of mine from university dug up from waaaayyyyyyy back in 1993 - when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

It's better than my failing memory would have assumed from that period of my life, but those legs are a little cringe-worthy. Ditto the weapons, but I still can't draw those damned things.

Anyhow, just thought I'd post it to hopefully stack up against more current art, once I get around to drawing some.

I'm guessing the 4.0 on his chest and his face was his GPA at that university?

Nice artwork by the way, I like it.

No, but back in the late 80's / early 90's belts, swords and guns came pretty much standard with every superhero. I think I showed remarkable restraint in not adding pouches. I mean, look at Solo... why does he need 10 pouches on each boot? What is he keeping in there?

The haircut is similar, but mine was based on the roommate I drew this for so any resemblance to Solo is purely coincidental.

The 4.0, to answer Jaeger's question BTW, was the minimum grade he needed to maintain in order to not get kicked out of his engineering program. I think it was out of 5, but I don't remember. I DO remember that he locked himself in his room for days at a time trying to maintain this benchmark, exiting only for class, food, washroom breaks and occasional binge drinking and fighting - usually to the Mortal Kombat soundtrack. To his credit, he did well and is an engineer out in Alberta making far more money that I ever will.

I remember Solo. That was pretty much the standard new character Rob Liefeld look of the 90's. So horrible. What is he shooting at? He looks as if his aim is horrible and one shot to the chest and this guy is blown to smithereens with all those grenades.

He had the ability to teleport... Which I guess made up for that.

He was shooting at the terrorists. He's basically a Punisher knock-off, I would think.

More Sober-goodness from the 1990s... behold, the Sudbury Six! This was a team of superheroes representing stereotypes about Sudbury - a mining city way up in the northern wilds of Ontario. The linework is a little faded but then again, so has my talent <_<
