Really cool, but Boomer's hair could be better in my opinion. (plz don't hate me.)

Having read your intentions for these characters, I offer the following (and I know it's long, but please read):

  -Brick and Butch have R's on their clothing, while Boomer has a B. This makes sense for them as a team, but is distracting and not cohesive for them as individual characters. Perhaps a "RRB" logo that they each have? Something like that would connect them, allow for more flexibility in where they stand, and let them stand apart as their own character.
  -Brick doesn't look like much of a fire guy. His clothing is long and baggy, and would cause difficulties in fighting. Fire is difficult to control, and long, baggy, extra pieces of clothing can easily catch on fire, particularly for a twelve year old who won't (I would assume) have complete mastery of his talents, even if he is super smart. He also doesn't appear particularly intelligent. He looks intense, but he lacks an obvious quirk or nervous tick that usually accompanies hyperintelligent characters (i.e. L has bags under his eyes, slouches, and has a sweet tooth; Dexter has glasses, lab coat, and later the cybernetic tech; etc). I like the way you draw fire, it's different than I'm used to.
  -Butch doesn't look all that strong. Yes, it's a superpower, so he doesn't necessarily need the literal muscle, but it would make sense for the character. He also doesn't look dumb. Currently, Butch just looks rough, outdoorsy, a little mean, and like he wouldn't care about schoolwork. Butch and Brick have outfits on that would actually work very well if you switched their outfits, leaving Brick with the hat(maybe, I'll address hair later), and leaving Butch with the tattered sleeve ends. Baggy/long clothes can easily be hiding a lot of muscle, and if the character doesn't slouch, such clothing conveys strength.
  -Boomer's outfit is very appropriate for a speed character, and the little rings you show near his hands are an effective way to convey sonic ability without the cliche scream. I also like that the rings appear somewhat rough; that's unusual and much more interesting than a plain circle. Perhaps circles under his feet or behind his back? That would underline his speed aspect. He isn't smiling, though, which he probably would be if he were the kind character you described him as.
  -Ok, Butch's hair looks like fire, Brick's long hair makes him the bishounen, not Boomer, whose afro slightly confounds his speed. I'm not really sure what you want to do with this, but the long straight hair is Bishie, an afro-type hairstyle like Boomer's is typically tough-guy, or "I'm a genius and I'm too busy thinking about other things to care how I look" which doesn't really agree with how the characters are now, but could certainly be made to work, and Butch's hair does look kind of like fire. Boomer's hair does kind of fit with his little sonic rings, now that I think of it, but maybe all the pokey-outie parts(I'm sure there's a word for that) should be in the same direction(rotationally, like the sound rings).
  -You clearly are skilled at drawing, and the characters look very nice. It's impressive that you made this into a line art just for showing a stage in the design process. The characters look like brothers, and they look like a team. Their designs fit with each other while not being too similar, so they aren't likely to be mistaken for each other (even if they were the same color).
  -A hyperintelligent fire character such as Brick is not something that is done a whole lot, and it will make your comic all the more interesting for that distinction.
  -Boomer having the sonic powers be part of his speed is good because it means he doesn't necessarily have to be hyperactive or impulsive. He can slow down and keep pace with others if he needs to while not giving up the high top speed. The sonic powers also give a good reason for short, extreme acceleration.
  -Butch is the dumb muscle... it's all in the character development. Where will you go with him?

With eager anticipation and wishes of greatness,

...Ordelog, would you be interested in being an editor for the Main Script of RRBD?
You most certainly have what it takes as far as qualifications go.
I admire how you pointed out ALOT of things no one has counted on which really will be explained in more detail later.
Also I like how you point out what the boys are missing or how their appearances don't match their personalities to an extent but again the information given was NOT really all that clear as I'm prone to keeping much of what i do have on projects hush hush ^^;
But I WILL be explaining this in more detail to this on those that work on the project so again i ask if you are interested please let me know ^^
Ordelog Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013
Sure. I'm in school, so I don't entirely know how my homework load will vary from week to week/day to day, but I don't have much else going on, so I'm sure I could "be an editor for the main script." I totally understand the desire to keep information under wraps. I do that all the time. So yes, I'm definitely interested.

Do I need to friend you or follow you or something? Sorry, I haven't used dA much in the past, so I don't really know how it works.
