Strike by Dualmask Strike by Dualmask
One of my oldest villain characters. Strike, a.k.a. Egor Towers, is a former strip club bouncer who was fired for lewd behavior toward the girls. In an attempt to make extra money quickly, he volunteered for what he thought was a research study, and ended up being captured and used by a mysterious scientific research corporation as a test subject for cybernetic implants. He broke out and now uses his new strength to commit petty crimes and harass women on a whole other level.

Just messing around with a rough sketch I doodled earlier during a bout of story-block.

The colors of this piece are great, and the pose is strong, but what really stands out for me are the glowing portions. The effects you've added are both subtle and effective, and I like how the color is reflected on his gauntlets.

Thanks! I really like how he turned out. It's fun bringing characters I made up when I was a little kid into the modern day.

Thanks! I can always seem to find a use for him, at least when I'm planning stories. I used to draw him a lot back in the day...I hope to put him to greater use in the future.

Given that he has clawed weapon arms, I think he'd make a great match for my Burst Lion to fight! I might have to try drawing that some day. What do those wires from his gloves attach to? What level of harrassment does he employ? Is he just kind of an all-talk wolf-whistler? Does he bother only the pretty ladies? Or is he more of an "anything with a skirt" kind of bro-douche? XD

His gauntlets and the wires actually feed inside his body (many of his biological organs have been replaced with machinery) and can be fired off like gas powered grappling hooks, and retracted. They're hard to explain, but it makes sense visually.

And as for harassment, well, he likes to grope and fondle and go all the way as much as he can without being a full-blown rapist. But he likes to stick to the attractive ones, the more so, the better...which makes him quite the opponent for a few of my leading ladies.

OK, rocket punch, that's freaking awesome! Is there some art in your gallery showing what it looks like where they feed into him? Or do they go through gaps in his clothing so it's all hidden?

Hmm... so would this guy keep his hands "off" of an under-18 heroine? Or would he display the same attitude toward any attractive lady?

I think I deleted all my old drawings of him, but the cables would feed into his lower back, where his spine meets his pelvis. That's why he doesn't wear a shirt under his vest.

And for the purposes of my storytelling, he wouldn't mess with underage characters. Strike likes his women as 'developed' as possible. ;)

OK, cool! I think I've got an idea of how that would look!

Ah, I gotcha! If he fought Burst Lion the fight would be more straightforward than if he was attempting to... "handle"... one of your heroines! I'll keep that in mind :D

Yeah, Strike's a full-blown heavy thug and he can take blows with the best of 'em. :nod: It takes a lot to scare him and even more to overpower him!

awesome design. may i make a suggestion to add to his greaseball type character? a few gold chains around his neck would be perfect.

Thanks! I hadn't thought of that; it might be a fine addition to his character. :nod:
