Founding Fathers

Here is the inked image of the Founding Fathers picture I have been working on. It features Washington, Hamilton, Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson. This is one of a series of revamped historical political figures. For a while I had no idea what to put in the sky. First it was going to be a military helicopter hoovering above, than it was an alien invasion. That didn't quite fit in with the setting that was already there, but i did like the idea of having some sort of futuristic crafts in the sky. Later I decided to full the sky with transport ships evacuating the inhabitant of earth.

Here is a summery: Far into the future, Earth has been overrun by a mutant plague and the remains of humanity if forced to evacuate the planet. A few years before the plague a few of the Founding Fathers returned from the dead to protect and serve. Outfitted with state of the art technology not only to restore themselves but also to improve their capabilities, The Founding Fathers have become an unmatchable force. During the evacuation of Earth, they chose to stay behind and hold off the hordes of mutants until the last ship has taken off. From there they plan to travel the globe and extinguish the mutant threat so that one day humanity might be able to return home.

Although it may seem cliché at first, I think Ben should have had some sort of lightning/electrical usage. Hamilton is entertaining with the dualies. Get to the color already!
