final product "supposedly"

This is going to be my final piece, unfortunately time has gotten the better of me. They turned out a lot better than my first drawings.
Here's the names of the characters from left to right.
The Muralist: he's Polynesian, carries around his Gatling gun to paint beautiful pieces of background art, and if you happen to get in the way you'll be part of the piece.
The Pillager: he ninjas himself across the field to where the enemy is and steals all of their spare ammo then he fills his bombs and hits you when you least expect it.
The Perfectionist: she always waits till the last minute to strike, and takes her time to find the perfect spot to snipe from.
The Curator: the head honcho of the group. He organizes the fights and always puts on a good show.
The Tagger: this guy is quick and efficient. He gets in, shoots the hell out of you and then runs away.
The Critic: she's never satisfied. If she sees you she will tear you to shreds with her "critiques".
non-photo blue sketches of my final.

more ideas and revisions

sigh..... well lets just say its not easy to revise a character. I've started to change them around and add more of a back story to them . The girl is particularly hard because I suck at drawing girls. for the most part I was just playing around with her face and hair, not much head way there. I gave her the nickname "the perfectionist" I thought it fit with being a sniper. There's always that one person that cant stop working on a piece of art till everything is absolutely presteen.
this fella right here, Im gonna replace with one of my older ideas. hes biased off of a Hawaiian or Polynesian. originally I just had him wearing a smock but then someone gave me the idea of a grass skirt and tada! ammo packs!!!! way more stylish. I gave him the name the muralist because he likes to paint on empty walls and make master pieces AKA shooting people half to death.
