Character art thread

Figured I would get things started here as a former member of the CoH art forum. This will be the place where you can post art of your characters.

Hey Gideon if you're the same one this is mysterious-flame/The Bug here are some of my heroes and villains.
I DIDN'T DRAW ANY OF THIS STUFF ALL COMMISSIONS. The Bug http://mysterious-flame.deviantart.com/art/The-Bug-Redesign-3-367419927 his powers in all honesty I haven't complety got a power set a nice mix of batman and Spider-Man and his own of course. His family owns a mental institution. Won't go to much into detail. This is the bugs Exo suite not the final design http://mysterious-flame.deviantart.com/art/The-Bug-Redesign-2-328861564 the final will be more mech. He'd use this suite in hard situations.
This is Doctor Cutta and his creation
http://mysterious-flame.deviantart.com/art/Dr-Cutter-and-The-Creation-333782011 The dr works for the bugs family it's safe to say he is secretly crazy.... The creations jacket are made out of faces of there victims. There is more indepth story to them both but I'll hold off.

This is the pumpkin patch http://mysterious-flame.deviantart.com/art/Welcome-to-the-Pumpkin-Patch-332303031i really actually don't have much of a story for them even though they are some of my oldest villains. Sorry for links I don't remember how to actually post images lol

My Fire/SS/Regen tank Brahn

One of my earliest L50's and favorite heroes, here is my Fire/SS/Regen tank Brahn Fuhrnos.


First I drew him in pencil...

and then digitally colored him.

@ GFN: A couple people in the thread already said they didn't make their own artz. You could have a friend make you some character artz or commission someone. There is no shortage of artists willing to take your money on DA if you look through the CoH group. Also many on this list (who helped with my City of X Send Off {coXso} event) knew the CC very well and still take commissions, just look through their journals for pricing info.


Also while there is no telling if the artz forums here will be anything like they were on CoH forums (though I am seeing some familiar names already) I know the community of artists that made the 606 our home were a generous bunch. Many of us held contests with character artz as prizes or had DaD (Drawing a Day) challenges where people could submit refs of their heroes and the artists would practice by drawing them. Also regular forumites getting surprised on their birthdays with multiple gift artz was not uncommon (I did more than 50 of those myself).


So just be active, keep your eyes peeled and there should be opportunities to get art of your character done.
Cheers!

Aye CR,

Aye CR,

I have even tapped Vex as a co-founder for moderating. I plan to make the CoT DA page everything the CoH one was and more.
I firmly believe the community and overall generous nature it harbored is what made CoH such a great game, not the actual game itself (which was fun but more like the spoon not the actual meal)

i plan on setting up a commission corner inside the CoT page, contests with rewards, themed galleries, collecting stories, screen shots of locations for reference... and many things I have yet to think about.

Give me references! Next

Give me references! Next week I'm going to start a 30-day arty challenge, doing one sketch a day to better my work. Give myself more things to practice on than just my own characters. so, in the spirit of that, anyone who wants to toss me character references, descriptions and such feel free to do so! You can look over my other stuff at kestralwolfe.deviantart.com . All sketches will be scanned and sent to the character's owner, and with permission, I'll post them in my own art thread just for that 30-day challenge =)

Good choice, VexXxa certainly has the experience.
Sounds great. You should probably make a folder for people to
put up their character refs (once the avatar builder comes online) as well.

To be fair that little Freedom Furball is pretty adorable and tough to resist drawing. ;)
Amerikatt has managed to pop up at least 4x in my drawings over the years.
This was the first.

One of the things I always loved was creating fun toons based on puns... so ... figured one of the first things I'd like to play with in the new game is a character made up entirely of air/storm powers. Call him Cloud Atlas. :) Started sketching him out... got him colored and started on the shading but too tired to finish tonight...

CoX was an awesome community

CoX was an awesome community (and still is!), a really great (arguably the best) Super Hero game MMO, and was also a huge inspiration for creativity. The insane level of customization options we had in CoX left me constantly creating new characters from random ideas I might have, but my first and always my favorite is Kai Steel my Tanker. I spent countless hours offline even after leaving CoX drawing her and continuing her story. Here are just a few random pictures I did:

Nice stuff KaiSteel! All the metallic body pieces... you were not looking to take the easy road artistically were you. :D
I had a tanker named SteinJack who was all metal skin with a minimal black and white outfit (the only color on him was his red lensed shades). Never did try and draw him though.
Sidenote: One of the great things about fanart is you get to make proportions not possible in the CC (Costume Creator).
Here's hoping we get to make thicker more powerful looking women like this in the AB (avatar builder I think it's being called?).

The Moys have been regulars at Anime Central's artist alley in Chicago for years. Whenever I went, I made it a point to get a commission from each. They're really nice guys to hang out and chat with, too.

Oh I hope so! I can't wait to find out, though. I have a character (Riot Baby) that I never made in CoX because I couldn't get those beefy proportions I wanted. :3

Yes, yes, yes - a thousand times yes! I wanted a heroine who was reluctantly forced into the role and wasn't the generic female super heroine body type. Just because you have special abilities doesn't make you Ms. Athleticism by default!

Quote:

Kai Steel: Absolutely gorgeous work! I really like the different hair styles.

Thank you! Hairstyles are something I have trouble with so I try to work on different types to get some practice. ^_^

I am loving seeing all the artwork! Character art is always great, and it's something personal that you feel proud of, or at least I like to think we all feel that way - whether our hands drew/created the art or not, our imaginations created the characters that inspire it all. Here's to hoping we get that same inspiration from CoT's character creator! :)

Well, it was a character

Well, it was a character design I drew years ago for a RP I was on in second life (and I was going to get it commissioned too, but finances kept me from it on there). It's also the reason why I really want a plethora of circlet charms for CoT. The Herald and Rai have an interesting working dynamic, which was shown in the BESM d20 game that drawing was based off of. Rai having the mirror of Nebt-het does not equal finding the shards of the Wosyienpu, it equals going to her favorite anime worlds so she can fangirl over her fave bishies. If they happen to have a shard, then it's a lucky break. :D

I've also noticed my drawings/edits to my last post aren't showing up on my laptop. I did use bbcode and copied the links from photobucket. Guess I'll have to go in and see if they're misbehaving.

I just saw this, I've loved

I just saw your original concept here - and I'd already started on playing around with what you had in the fan forum as concept ideas of the tank, gears and a kind of giant/robot/transformerish look. I've loved that name you had and started playing with the concept and came up with something completely different.

I'll take a crack at this trying my hand with the original concept, keep in mind... I am not an artist - nor do I play one on tv. I just love to have fun. Hope you don't mind... but the name is just too much fun not to do stuff with.

bahahaha it matches my forum name so well! I shall avatar-ize it tomorrow!
As far as Arch goes... I spent a wee bit of time looking up various mech/robot things that start to give the feel of what I hope to create in game for him. I totally changed his origin story to take out the templar look and bring him a step closer to what he was in CoH.

One of the things I'd like to see is come up with some animated costume choice options. I know on CO they have a "cosmic" skin that's all stars. I think it's possible to have some limited animates to the costumes so, having that gives the appearance of lightning, fluids, atmospherics. Which this is different from an aura in that it's the actual skin.

I'm going to play with the UDK, Maya, Zbrush and see what's possible. Most likely this may have some drawbacks with performance so it will need to be carefully done. But if it's feasible I'll definitly push for it to dev.

Artists assemble! *ahem*

Artists assemble! *ahem*

I'd like to get some character art done and thought there's no better people to ask for recommendations of artists who take commissions than other artists. The drawing(s) in question are of powered armor / exosuit in a relatively traditional comic book style. For a non-digital format I'd prefer an artist in or near Europe, lest shipping becomes a concern.

Might want to specify what

Nicely done Tidalwave. Very cute. :)

Hey Fez, you might want to specify what medium. I am guessing you mean traditional as you mention shipping?
I don't know that many EU artists off hand and most of them are digital artists.

FYI you could get something digital done anywhere in the world and have a site (like DA, FAA, Zazzle or
whatever their EU counterparts might be) print it on whatever you want (canvas,
posterboard, mousepad etc) and ship it to you that way.


I would recommend any on this list, http://fav.me/d5hupfx
they all played City of X games and know the costume creator.


Also you could look through the DA galleries of the big collectors (Thors Assassin, Caemgen etc) and find hundreds of artists to choose from and then jump right to their journal, find their location, see if they are open for commissions and what their rates are. You also will get a good idea of what their best areas are as armor/mech is not everyone's strong suit.

I did mean artists in the European area for traditional mediums, yes. As you said, shipping is not a concern for digital art*.

Thanks for the link and the suggested galleries. Those look like superlative places to start. I've been poking at DeviantArt a bit but my DA-fu is weak.

Yeah, Watchfire is a great group. They encouraged me to just 'freeform' a new character and I ended up with a rather deep backstory, which led, in turn to the creation of a new character in CoH. I ended up using the Peacebringer AT, in all-human form, to create my super-powered college professor, Starlight Saint.
