Sadly, I'll never master Poser, so I just use it as a basic figure modeler to draw from.

 

SuperSquad America are very cool too. Look like a fun group.

 

thanx--but poser's not that hard--it's the upgrades and add-ons that'll do you in....

 

cyberpath and shard are interesting character concepts

 

but then i'm one of those who can never get enough of good looking female champs characters....

Matriarch Xeta, ruler of an as yet undecided planet.

 

Rather than a tiara or crown, the symbol of her office is this half-mask (with built in optical enhancements in the right eye).

How about something a bit more down to earth?

 

This is Percival Prentiss, my character in a 1930 pulp game. The goggles are just glasses (which he actually only needs for reading).

 

I based the character on Hiram Holliday, a pulp era hero created by a very famous author in some of his first stories. Unfortunately, I have just had a senior moment and cannot remember his name. He wrote a lot of great stories over the years.

 

Percival, like Hiram, has been studying to be a hero for the last ten years. He's taken shooting lessons and boxing lessons and learned a bit about driving and piloting. Now he's found he is one of the Sons of K. D. Elder, a very diverse group who have inherited their fathers' estate and their father's penchant for investigating conspiracies...

Take a look at the metallic fill effects under blends. That might help see how the defaults work. It looks like a gradiant fill basically. Maybe add a lens flare or a light effect on the edge of the metallic surfaces.

 

I'm going to have to take another look at the coloring that I've done. It is definitely not up to snuff with your stuff, but I'm not very artisitic either.

 

Thanks for the posts!

For the metallic effect try adding a hard accent of very dark (but not black) tone, and a highlight of very bright (but not quite white) tone. The high contrast will help make it "shine". Then throw a small lens flare on the bright highlight. You'll want to do this on another layer likely so you can tweak until it looks right and then merge it down.

 

Looks good so far though.

One other thing though; the swirly effect and the centralization of the belt buckle plus the "V" style of his torso pulls the eye directly into the buckle. Might want to throw an accent or a lighting effect on the face to pull the eye there.
