"I never did find out what 'is name was, but DAMN that old timer left a lot of mutant corpses layin' around those mountains."
-Lance Cpl. Royce Gardener, Seige of Ufa-Madri survivor
He's here to kick ass and chew bubble gum..... and he's run out of gum!
I noticed this chow only yesterday, so I've worked hard to produce something to enter, hope you guys like it and I hope to start my next CHOW earlier so I can give and hopefully recieve some feedback next time. Cheers!
Bartholomew Leonidas Lawson - Man with great taste in life and awful in company. Don Casparo`s attorney and personal friend (he took a bullet in his left leg with Casparo`s name on it), also known as "Law Leonidas", never lost a case in his 30 years of practicing law.
Man, is that a lame character story or what? XD
Anyways - great round everybody!

Shevetta! The Veteran of Almuric rides!
Bio: Known as the Vulture among his enemies, the veteran belongs to a tribe of mixed blood warriors dedicated to ending European expansion with the sword. He's lead hundreds of battles and raids against colonists in the last twenty years.
My entry and wip, to be honest I'm not quite satisfied after finishing it, the gesture/pose, the details especially the scars aren't as pronounced as I originally intended, and I finish this a little bit rushed, too little time spent on exploring thumbnails. I hope in the next CHOW I could fix it.
Still not done, but done enough for the challenge i suppose. i am sure i will eventually go back and redo it.
"Snipers make lousy lovers. They never make the first move."
- Analise Konchalovsky.
After 20 years as an Army Sniper, Analise Konchalovsky. Many are reluctant to take her seriously when they judge her by her young looks, but quickly regret such judgement when they see her skills in action. 10 years ago, while providing cover-fire for her squad, it came down to a face off with an enemy sniper. She waited for him to take another shot so that he would expose himself, but her bright red hair turned out to be the target. She did deliver the kill-shot, but not after being grazed by a 50 cal. bullet, scarring her face and blowing off her ear. Ever since that battle, she has had very little sense of humor. Men tremble in fear when she smiles. There are rumors that her negative response to the advances of men are simply becuase her sexual interests lie in the fairer sex, but again, merely rumors. She doesn't talk much, but when she does, her strong alto voice demands attention.
'Waiting for the Old Man'
The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.
“You need people like me.
You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""
Deep in his memories, he is.
I didn't have a chance to work on it more, wanted to include battle scenes in background, but then this way it centers on him as he revisits his battles in his mind.
(Why am I addicted to Chows??)
here's my take on the veteran. See you all next week.
Ok, here's my guy. Hope you like it. I'm sorry if my wips leave a bit more to be desired, but I kind of flattened the image before I read the posting conditions. All I had left were one early version and the black and white one.
"Any second-rate thug can kill a person... its the fact that you can stay alive when others try to kill you that makes you dangerous..."
This is Innya a veteran hitwoman(ironicaly enough this means "the innocent" in russian). She is a russian mob doll who had to learn a whole new set of tricks to survive in the harsh enviroment she grew up with. She can kill you with 30 different ways before you even know she is there but she is not averse to using brute force either. People who underestimate her sadly dont get a chance to learn from their mistakes...ever again!
When she is in a killing mode she wears a spiked colar on her neck (kind of like a reverse danny the dog). The scars on her right arm are not the number of people she has killed but rather the number of times she has eluded death herself. She hides most of her battle scars with tattoos to feed the myth that wants her invinsible and imposible to hit.
its missing a few finishing touches but i thought i d miss the deadline so i posted it.
the sons of anarchy tattoo is a tribute to the series ofc
