Holding Out For A Heroes Season 2

Well, while my TV's still---resting shall we say, I managed too get caught up on the first two new episodes of Heroes this weekend, thanks to Slugger McGee. So far it seems as great as the first series...intrigue with the company, the shadow of a mysterious villain and more fun with Hiro (lovely underplayed humour when he puts his glasses back on to get a proper look at his hero).

However, while season one liberally lifted from Watchmen and Days of Future Past, this season seems to have picked The Shadow King, The Twelve and the Legacy Virus from the X-Men, as well as throwing in a touch of Cloak and Dagger and the oil from the X-Files. Still, great entertainment all round and I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the series.

Anyway, below is the inked version of the Heroes pic...Hiro is changed from the pencils, I've added Ando and the Haitian and changed Claire's cheerleading outfit to her season two one as I was having trouble figuring out the right texture for her original jumper but can hopefully blag the new one!

With the pencil construction erased, some of the likenesses are now a bit weak (although some-like Nathan below) have turned out ok. Hopefully when I shade in the detail, the likenesses will fill back in...

Next season on Heroes: Age Of Sylar, followed by Mohinder and Micah merging to form Onslaught, then the inevitable Heroes Reborn...

Where's Nathan's big comedy paintbrush beard eh? Looking good though, particularly like Sylar's eyebrows.

That's a spiffy likeness.

Also delighted to learn I'm not the only one who still calls our boy Slugger :)
