The boys’ Winter Formal Dance is abruptly interrupted when they discover their arch villain Redcoat has returned and kidnapped one of their buddies! The setting is the grounds of the guys’ posh New England prep school.
This BG was fun to concoct and really sets the mood for the piece. Redcoat, as my client dictates, is an old enemy, possibly from way back in the Revolutionary War where he battled the heroic Ghost Soldier. Now he has mysteriously reappeared with a vengeance! He’s All-American’s version of the Joker or Lex Luthor– a real evil sunnuva. He was pretty fun to draw as well, and successfully convinced me that I can make a guy in a powdered wig hot. heehee.
And then we have the cute lil’ teenaged hostage. My client liked my design for him so much that he made him into a super-hero as well! Meet The Rebel, the latest sidekick for the patriotic super-duo. He’s loyal, eager, and ready to serve! Think of the “Batgirl dynamic” with a dash of Jimmy Olsen thrown in.
More on these guys to come…
