Finally submitting the sketches of Tex's new Blood Sport opponents, Strelok and Rik. <D This round is going to be rough, but should be fun. I got lots of surprises and twists for this entry. >:}

To sum up: Strelok is one nasty piece of work, a bounty hunter and mercenary for hire who was put into the B-S by accident. He's one of the Irken Empire's favorite propoganda tools and enjoys his fame--probably. It's hard to tell with the mask--actually it's unknown if Strelok is male or Female. He's known for being quite sadistic, often toying with his victims with torture before killing them off in decidedly gory fashions. He's also a good shot and has multiple weapons and a high-tech suit. He's got a few injuries here and there.

Rik is getting seriously tired of this competition, and just wants to be free of it to hook back up with his wife who was, unfortunately, also involved in Blood Sport. He carries a locket with a picture of his family in it, is handy with guns, and is nicknamed Quick Shot Rik and The Cowboy for his quick gun-slinging skills. He also has a Southern accent like Tex does.

Tex, meanwhile, is doing the best of the three, at least physically. He has no serious injuries other than cuts and bruises, since he used D12's pak to heal himself. The poncho part of his jacket is somewhat shredded, along with the hem of the coat which was ripped to make bandages. He's running low on supplies but certainly not energy-pulse ammo for his twin pistols.

Interesting juxtaposition of characters we got here. <|D All good with guns, all more than willing to kill what they have to to get out of this contest of the damned. That's a recipe for something deliciously nasty.

To *Irken-Risk and ~Gvozdi, if you want me to make changes to Strelok or Rik's designs, speak up, because the pages are being sketched soon. X)

By the way, I was going through Tex's ref and some of your older BS3 entries to get a closer look at his equipment and fighting style...

I just noticed something. Wasn't Tex 6'3? I know it's nothing big but I thought you might want to know about that.

Loving the cowboy hat conflict at the bottom! Favorite part... Rik's expressions. Captures his general "ugh" emotions very well.
