These are the "Bad Guys" in my Alpha II Omega manga. I wanted them to be different in appearance, while fitting into known tropes. The smooth-talking, suavely dressed man, the shy but immensely powerful, beautiful woman (see the cuffs on her wrists?), the adorable, mischievous, little girl, and the no-nonsense, grizzled general. I think I pulled these off well enough.
What I had the most trouble with was keeping them all within a red theme in colour with a good amount of difference in shade. Why red? I honestly don't remember. It was the colour palette I chose back when I first drew these in 02-03, and I wanted to stick to it. Not to mention, them all being the same colour, makes it obvious they're a team.
I think that pretty much sums it up. I am working on The All Encompassing Evil, but with my limited amount of free time, I'll most likely have this posted maybe in January.
As always, thanks for looking!
