Darkhawk seems so random in this group.

There's a plethora of tropes to choose from but Darkhawk was a big deal for a brief period in the early 90s, armor on everyone became a thing.

Bonus points if the character's name has any combination or at least two of these words:

DarkBloodFireScarlet
DeathWolf/WulfRockStrike
KnightStarReignHawk
LockDieDeadRain
WildHardStormHammer

etc

Nice entries wildcat & artiom both the sort of stereotypical strong dudes of whatever team they're on, both with seemingly pointless bands on their appendages.

Sorry for the quick and nasty effort today.

Presenting... Death Kyll!

Hiding the feet was a tactic that some artists used in the 90's, as was adding a pointless "Y" to a character's name.

Side note: My band in highschool had a mock powermetal song called Death Kill.

This was a good topic but it's also the worst topic. I made a check list for my drawing and kept to it. Shoulder Pads? Check. Missing foot? Check. Large, nondescript rectangular gun? Yep. Weird safety cone shaped boot? Yep again. Ponytail, Cable-esque arm, a weird looking communications tower earpiece, random spikes, energy power, random bandage with ribbons, bland costume, strapped gun on back, face tattoo... all yes... and I like my draw but I also really don't at the same time. :) Heck, I even draw a tattered paper around my sig stamp in the corner.

Thank the gods the 90's are gone... bad time for comics...

DEATHCRASH takes posing to the EXTREME!!!

Sorry for the smudgy. I just saw this today and had to throw something together.

No nose, mowhawks, chains and punk.

I shall call him Hard Hawk.
