Today we continue our look at the official Critical Hit Characters Designs by our good friend Thomas Perkins.

You may remember Thomas Perkins from his excellent work on Ben 10, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Green Lantern, and of course, our Hero History of Kablamakus! Thomas approached us quite a while ago about providing art, and over the last couple of years, we’ve honed everything down to where we are happy to show off the first official character designs to you, our faithful Spoilerites and Critites.

All this week, we introduce a character and design to you. The third character in our pantheon of heroes of the Critical Hit Universe is the artificer who is out of time – RANDUS!

Comment section below… use it.

If you didn’t get to see Orem, check out that awesome image, here.

And if you missed out on Torq, you can find that bit of ephemera here.

    Comparing it to the Aldo-made miniature, his arm is far too small in this.

    Wait, this guy looks to competent to be Randus. Maybe it’s his evil twin…the one that only rolls 20’s.

      Randus rolls 20’s. Granted it is usually skills challenge initiative, but he does roll them.

    I was expecting a more Nathan Spencer-like arm… this looks kinda weird, it seems to be twice the length of the other arm. I love CrabSpiderGuy though! Now I want to release it into the wild!

    Great Character desing Mr. Perkins, specially loved the look and feel of the robotic Arm and the green light effect.
    A quick question, are the robotic arm’s spirals of “exelarchy of cogs” inspiration?

    I was imagining something more Steampunk. Still, excellent work Mr. Perkins

    My actual train of thought went something like “That arm looks too big for some reason… oh wait!”. Dim of me! Loving the pouches too, at least we know that unlike a lot of comic book characters Randus actually needs them.

    Yay! Randus! Randus has always been my favourite. And he’s so well-drawn too!

    Will there be desktop wallpaper-sized versions of these?

    This is my favourite one so far. I still prefer the Aldo miniature of Randus (in the same way that they say your favourite James Bond is the one you saw first).

    I love this take. It is has replaced Rick Moranis as my go-to Randus image :)

    The proportions on the arm of mega punchiness are awesome…Reminds me of Big O!

    Randus needs to start yelling “SHOWTIME!” before punching something.

    Now I understand why he punches things so good.

    So. Much. Love.

    I don’t have words to describe how awesome his “assistant” looks!

    It’s really pretty good. I always imagined (since he’s always described as being a little shorter than average) as having smaller features (skinnier in the face and neck, and not so broad in the chest. Still like it though. :)

    I would thought the robot arm was freaking huge, thus explaining his ridiculously effective robot arm punches. Other than that very much my favorite Image so far
