Sniper by Darkchild413 Sniper by Darkchild413
Sniper aka Shawn Davids, leader of the DRC. A former member of the Corporation (more on them later) He helped to form the DRC with Nebula in hopes of stopping something terrible from happening to the world and unveiling a grand conspiracy. But many question are still left unanswered. Is there really a threat? Is the conspiracy legit or is it a wild goose chase? Is Catastrophe (Kyana Mitchell) the savior or just a "normal" person? Sniper fights for the answer to these questions and more and though he's not 100% sure of the answers, the evidence is substantial.

Being a high ranking member of the Corporation, Sniper has undergone some operations for cybernetic implants. His most important upgrade is a targeting system which allows him to lock on to and predict the movements of up to 20 moving targets. This makes for some fancy gunfights. Especially when the Corp Elite (Cyborg mercenaries) comes after Sniper for going awol.

...

Though the art is good, there isn't anything insinuating that this guy's a sniper...

Still, though... seems like it's interesting...

The General

Yeah, no sniper rifles with scopes or anything but he gets his name from being able to hit any target within the range of his firearm. If you skim through the description for the Sniper, you'll see that he has some cybernetic enhancements.

Wow, this is old. I almost forgot about this character! Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Maybe I should revisit this drawing...

The characters and their stories are about 5 years in the making. I just wanted to come up with something kind of original but that's a hard thing to do. It seems like every idea has been taken. So I'm just trying to put my unique touch on everything. Hopefully it's noticed when the final project is complete.

I love characters with a past and half of the DRC members have shaky past lives. Sniper, Nebula keeps running into their past and Lucky is trying to get as far away from his as possible.

And Catastrophe's past is very sad. I just started jotting down ideas for a DRC mini - series that takes place before issue 1. This series will shed a some light on who Catastrophe really is, from childhood to current times.

I wish I had the time to just finish the mini right now. *sigh*

time sure is a pain in teh ass! i like the stories u come up with tho, they're original, and that's hard to come by these days, hence the reason i dont post back up stories, i come up with an idea, then find some other mutherfucker's already come up with a similar one, and then im back to square one again, its happened so many times i cud write an article about idea rejection and re iteration.......

anyway, the pic rocks, and thas all that counts.... in a way! lol
