Scheme & Sketch: Clean Sweep

Nerds On The Rocks is proud (but deep down we hate ourselves) to announce a weekly contest where you, the nerds that you are, submit descriptions of a superhero/supervillain of your own creation that you’d like to be seen drawn by our resident “artist”, D.C.

Each week the most interesting submission will be drawn (as in selected) and drawn (as in drawn).

To start things off, the master of rocking nerds (and the number one cause of Shaken Nerd Syndrome), Earl the Penguin, offered this description:

He’s a normal fellow who wanted to do something more with his life but couldn’t afford a higher education so he learned through books and trained himself.  Instead of high class body armor he has garbage bags knit together and since he can’t afford a cowl, a cloth with holes punched into it.  Maybe some foil on top to give him some color.  A garbage can lid as a shield.  A brokenstick is his weapon of choice.  His name is Clean Sweep and his catchphrase is “It’s time to clean up this city, one piece of trash at a time.”

And here’s what D.C. did with that.

"It's time to clean up this city, one piece of trash at a time."

Looks like he disregarded the trash can lid and tin foil.  (In my defense he also sent me a picture of a hobo.  And as you well know, hobo imagery overrides all reading comprehension. – D.C.)  What an ass.

So there you have it.  Leave your description in the comments below and next week you might see your character in picture form.

Review Bot 3000

A surly tavern patron who guides young adventurers on foolhearty missions in order to acquire strange ingredients for powerful potions. He also plays a mean sax.

    Wow, really fantastic piece. Love that concept, too. If you don’t mind, I’d love to get in on this.

    Here’s my concept, in short form:

    Martin Marsh is a 19 year old kid who’s father was the B-list super-criminal “The Salamander”. Seeking to redeem his family name and carve his own path as a superhero, the boy uses his father’s research and patents to create the persona of The Frog, a gadgeteering crime-fighter who’s always ready to leap into action!
