In the spirit of better late than never, this update showcases Rich’s concept sketches for the new Sparkman. As you can see, we went over a few color options for the highlights.
That’s right, we have a new member of the team! Please welcome aboard Leon, the new Sparkman! If the name sounds familiar it’s because the new Spark is being based off Elecman of the Sinister Six … who is also Geoff aka Diveman of Cossack’s Comrades. It may be a while before the epilogues reflect this, but until that happens please give a warm welcome for the new Spark.
In addition to this he has a new card for the Shadow Hunters character cards we’ve made and Topman’s created a new background for the cards which we’ll be using.
“Where did you learn how to do that?” I asked.
Needle Gal pushed the last one into Gravity Man’s right wrist and moved on to his left arm. “Mostly practiced on myself,” she said as she pulled another needle from her hair like a seamstress and began lining it up in place along Gravity’s outstretched arm. “It took a long time before I figured out where the right pressure points were. Luckily 15 years is a lot of time to practice.”
“Well it’s a hell of a skill,” I remarked. “You should use it more often.”
Topman’s been experiencing delays in his revision to Genesis End, so here’s Needlegal in her spiffy new Transmetal 3 armor! Well, I say "new", but it’s mainly tweakes colors and a new hat. Her armor was designed first and at the time an entire line of new armor for the team wasn’t planned. That was scrapped when Rich got around to doing Gemini’s armor (who was second, if I recall correctly).
“I’m certain, now, that I understand what happened here,” Ha’Khael said as he swept his hands along the air, almost like a mime might. He stopped. “Ahhh, yes, there it is. It’s like I said, once you know the intent, detecting the spell is child’s play.”
“What are you saying,” Gemini asked, “that you know how these people are being murdered?”
Along with the latest Genesis End chapters here’s a picture of Geminiman in his Transmetal 3 armor.
Geminiman got up off the floor and felt his jaw. "Have you been here the whole time? It’s been 15 years."
Bongun shrugged. "It not like I have a place to go back to. We ghosts do like to haunt places and this seemed as good as anywhere. Maybe you’d even remember me again. Or see me again! I had almost given up hope on that ever happening."
And here are some pics by Jade of Alpha Movement fame. Either I missed this or forgot about it when they were first made because they’re from some time ago. I found these when scouring the net for Cossack’s Comrades material.
Gemini’s Working With Ghosts may be over, but we’re not finished with refurbished Mechanical maniacs stories. Tune in next week for more!
