Dime-A-Dozen Projects #6 - Misc. Sci-Fi Characters.

[Dime-A-Dozen Projects is so named from a conversation with creative friends of mine as we lamented that when we were working full-time for someone else, we get these (in our minds) original "million dollar" ideas, that would, somehow, turn into "dime-a-dozen" ideas when we were out of work and on our own.]

Next up, is Misc. Sci-Fi , a group of miscellaneous characters that I drew in my teenage sketch books (mid-1960 - 1980s)
 Most of the these characters don't have proper names or fully realized backgrounds and story lines, just brief ideas.

The Warrior Prince, the sketch book drawing figure who's face influenced by  Miles Davis, jazz's Prince of Darkness.
 The Galactic Bounty Hunters.
 Maximus Kreel, Intergalactic Bounty Hunter. (aka the Voyager)
 St. Clair - Space Detective, "Blaster for Hire".
 Terraplane Jane.
 Space Pirates.

The Great Interplanetary.  This character was a astronaut marooned on with sword and sorcery, and hi-tech elements.  The concept never got past this rough drawing. 
The Lovers.  These are two star-crossed lovers, her being a high born princess and he is a guard palace who combat career was ended when he lost his arm at war.  The bare breast were definitely influence by reading Heavy Metal magazine.

 Future War - Into the Breach - The Godless Hour is a later drawing influenced by my love of military science fiction, especially the David Drake book series Hammer's Slammers.
A10 0 Heavy Artillery - was a attempt female armored battlesuit warrior.

Starship Gunner - Tailgunner is a very old sketch that I always intended to do more with

 It could go with this story board sequence inspired by the arcade video game Tailgunner.
Next, I will start present more focused, starting with sword and sorcery character influenced by the Frank Frazetta's Conan paperback back covers.
