Well, I've been working on a scene with Argurous and Pink, but it's not finished yet. And it is a work-safe image, Ze'.

Here's that work-in-progress:

Here’s our IST New York Alpha Team for 2010.

From left to right it’s:
Großmütig Kämpfer (I know practically no German, so I'm taking it at the player's word that this is reasonably close).
Pink
Cosmic Wolf
Argurous Astraph
Commando

When I can find a good mat for him, I’ll add Patchwork.

Is the Lady Bug Warrior playing with his nipples there?

Um . . . no. He's supposed to be counting.

MonkeyFist agrees with you, though. And, I forsee a name change in his immediate future.

Marienkäfer does sound better than Großmütig Kämpfer... *grin*


Or you could just call him käfer, or the rotkäfer...

I have to say, I'm with Ze and MonkeyFist - he's holding his hands too close to his chest, I'd say. Repose them further out, and perhaps a two-handed counting where one hand has the number and the other is "ticking off" fingers/knuckles/etc.

I know someone who actually uses the fingers of one hand like an abacus for quick arithmatic (in some funny numeric base - 4 I think :P), but he needs to flick the "beads" (his fingers) to do it or he gets confused.

Well, that's what he's doing: He's counting 1's on his right hand, and 5's on his left. He's at 16.

MonkeyFist also reminded me that if I've got Cosmic Wolf in the picture, I also need to have Zell. So widescreen it is. I finally got the lightning surface mat to work again (after moving to a new computer), so I fixed Argurous' lightning fist.

[edit]
Image updated per Anthony's comments

Hopefully, fixed.

Pink is deliberately posing. She likes to show off.

Noticed that last night and fixed it last night.

It is, as well as being fixed. It may be a bit more noticable now. But, I'll have to see what I can do to get it to throw light better.

The teeth are a weird lighting artifact. I'm trying to figure out what caused it before I fix it, so I can do it again, when I want to make a vampire.

As for his pose, I'll see what I can do to fix it.

Actually, this is reasonably close to being a parody of, say, naming conventions for German NPCs from RPG supplements of the 80ies or 90ies.

Gramatically, it ought be Großmütiger Kämpfer. As an adjective, Großmütig is awfully quaint. It is translated with magnanimous. Should is mean something like courageous? Than tapfer would be a better term. Kämpfer, on the other hand, translates as fighter, but does not sound very prestigious. Here, Krieger might sound better.

Please ignore this if you were not looking fro suggestions.
