Funny how much a different hair cut and lack of facial hair make him look different from traditional Sinestro. The hair reminds me of Spock.
I think a soul patch would work with that design.

Much better I think.

Yeah, the hair is very much Spock based. Wanted to do a cut that wasn't his super widows peak, but still fit the character.

Born on the Planet Korugar, Dextro Thuul was one of many to fall under the power of the Power Rings of Volthoom, a cursed item which took control of its host, draining them of their own will in exchange for promises of personal power. Though once heralded as Volthoom's most devoted servant, Joseph Harrolds revealed to Volthoom that Dextro had been subverting the ring's instructions, providing his people with aid and protection from Volthoom's regime. His ring stripped from him and given to another, more willing host, Dextro left his universe in search of a means of stopping Volthoom. He soon found his means in another universe, with the Guardians of OA. Though the guardians were unable to make rings based on the emotional spectrum work properly for one from Thuul's universe, they were able to adapt the technology from one of Volthoom's rings so that the power came from the user's ability to overcome fear.

And thus was born Dextro, the hero of Golden Light.

I don't know about the 'stash.
On the one hand, the stash adds something, but on the other, he looks less intimidating without it. I kind of prefer without, but I'm torn.

I agree, the facial hair does make him look... more evil. Codified "evil goatee."

What if he had a different kind of moustache? Would it be weird? A dad 'stache?

Anyhow, it does look great, either way. Glad to see you're still at it!

So I went into a crash+burnout situation (lost layer data, meh) but I'm finally back at it. Trying out a RDJ style beard, think it gives Thuul a more Roguish appearance.

Thanks to SickAlice, work has begun on Atomic. Mostly working on skope end at the moment.

*sigh* if I could go a few years without having to do this again...

So. I doubt any of you heard, but I must once more remove a skin from heroforce because the person it's of turned out to be a disgusting human being. If anyone has a desire to download Mad King Ryan, preferably *just* for archival purposes, do so quickly, because I doubt it will survive past this weekend. Corpirate will remain available in the pack's place.

That said, be aware that Ryan Haywood (google) is a turd of a human. My friends and I spent the weekend destroying merch of the man.

So I unfortunately don't have a ton of time to work on Atomik rn (I promised roommates I'd do some sprite work for a pokemon mod) but the recent announcement of a Crime Syndicate Miniseries inspired me to get back to work on Atomik. For those who saw the OG design on discord, but not the new one, there are a few changes incorporating both the new design, as well as the jacket from the 90s teenager Ray design.

I do like the 90s jacket for our whole 'EXTREME/Grimdark! is evil' thing.  He needs some fingerless gloves too!

See, I thought about doing that when I was designing them, but ultimately I decided not to because we had discussed the idea of Atomik being a thief/spy for Ultraman, and leaving fingerprints (even tiny ones) seemed counterintuitive to that.

Haha, but who says that these designs make logical sense?  Still, that's coming along really nicely.

Mostly done with the core part of the skin now but I'll likely work on the extras first before I get that done (want to do some straps for the arm/knee pads). That said, likely done for today, and I wanted to post a sort of mini-bio for y'all. Real quick though, in case anyone was wondering... I'm using "Atomik" rather than "Atomic" both to match the upcoming change for the CSA miniseries (which uses "Atomika"), and because said change was done to more closely mirror the spelling of "Amerika".

Spoiler: ShowHide
Quote
Born Rhonda Palmer, Atomik spent most of her academic career with her achievements being belittled and ignored due to her gender. However. after discovering the power of the dwarf star material, Dr. Palmer decided to use her newfound abilities to steal from those who had pushed her down throughout the years. Taking great pains to mask her gender (not wanting to endure either the belittling or sexualization that plagued her academic career), Palmer soon made a name for himself in the criminal underworld as Atomik. However, his exploits caught the attention of Ultraman, who was able to use his abilities to blackmail Palmer by threatening to reveal his secret.

The original idea was that I wanted to acknowledge the canon version of the character, but not fall into the tropes that are implied by a female thief/spy. Rhonda is much more of a roll in the dirt kind of thief, crawling through dirty air ducts and trudging through sewers to get where they want to go. And while not really consciously aware of it, he's also much more comfortable in the guise of a man than the years spent living as a woman. It's why I'll probably continue to use male pronouns most of the time, because for all practical purposes this is a male character even if he has some feminine characteristics.

Oh! This character origin is dope!

The jacket and pads and stuff remind me of a '90s character, but done tastefully. I dig it!
