WCL: The Striker Team by Dualmask WCL: The Striker Team by Dualmask
Decided to try out my markers on a slightly larger project.

The Striker Team is the "hero" team of WEAPON Combat League. Quinn uses his energy blades and jump jets for fast melee attacks and a hit-and-run fighting style, Faith protects her allies and damages her opponents from afar with concentrated light blasts and Marcus does the heavy lifting with high explosives, with strong armor enabling him to tank for his teammates.

Art notes:

Drawn on cardstock paper with mechanical pencils, Microns and a Sharpie inking pen, Tombow brush tip markers and Copic Ciao markers for the skin, with a touch of colored pencils.

My scanner sucks. There's barely any difference between the red on Quinn's armor and the orange on Marcus' on screen, but it's clearly different on the paper. Attempts to make it look better in Photoshop didn't work out. But still, I'm pretty happy with this. I want to add some kind of background but I'm not sure what to do that won0't butcher the piece.

I scanned it before I colored it so maybe I'll do it digitally as well.

EDIT: Updated with a photo instead of a scan. I'll accept the skewed look and uneven lighting in exchange for seeing the colors a bit closer to the way they were intended.

Thanks! I think this is the first time I ever colored these characters with traditional art...at least Marcus and Quinn. I draw Faith all the time...haha.

I like the look of Faith in this one. Marcus reminds me of an 80s cartoon :)

Ah well. I designed Marcus' armor loosely based on bomb squad gear.

Nice work!  I looked more closely when you mentioned the color difference and yeah, you can barely tell between the two.  I wonder if there's a setting for your scanner to help it pick up the colors better?

I even tried to do a color replace in Photoshop and it kept affecting the red and the orange at the same time. I bought a cheap scanner and it shows. I'm going to have to invest in a better one.

Still, couldn't hurt to try again. Maybe I can affect the settings somehow. I'm going to explore it...and re-upload if I can manage to improve it.

Glad you like it, at any rate. :)
