I dunno...thinking that a scarf may get in the way of wielding a bow and drawing arrows. plus, I kinda submit to the Edna Mode school of thought...

a scarf aint a cape...but it has the same hazards.

What stops you?
You already have the collecting bit going.
That's the tough part for me, whenever I get spare monies it seems to go toward a computer upgrade or vacation.
And when I do commission art I tend to give half of it away so my collection is far from where I want it to be. Art trades help though.

So seriously... what is stopping you?

dunno who that is but yeah, same basic principle. :)

I ganked the idea from COH fire/ice elemental titan weapon once they came available. suits him and his original concept better. waaaay back in MSH RPG, he had darkforce manipulation...which I put into the form of a sword. I like the lighter smokey look versus going pure black like marvel did with it's standard use of darkforce.

this is a redue that Jason opted to do as he was not happy with how the coloring was working out (he does it all by hand!) he had tried using his kids coloring supplies as he ran out but it wasn't working out to his satisfaction as such he opted to start again. the pic that I am working on is the original line work he put together.

I was kind of surprised to

I was kind of surprised to see Lionseye caught in a normal perpendicular-to-the-plane-of-gravity pose! I got used to so many action shots of her in the middle of some acrobatic maneuver. Appealing picture, composition-wise, too.

Are you doing repeat work with the same crew of artists? A lot of consistent character seems to be coming through, the more art we see of these heroes, and despite different artists. (I could probably trace it back, but I'm curious how you'd respond, Peregrine.)

A Wing and a Prayer, A Strong, Strong Wind, All Forests are One, Power Struggles - Venture City metahuman novels in the spirit of City of Heroes and other comic book superhero fiction. (http://bit.ly/sdpbooks)

I have a lil stable of

I have a lil stable of artists I like to go to as their style suits my taste in what "I" feel fits the comic genre...that an they're damn good artists imo. The stable, as it stands now is Fooray, Joe M Davis, Eryck Webb Graphics and the artist I lean upon most often of em all is Alex (imagesbyalex). He was one of the first two artists I ever commissioned (the other was Baquintania). Given I love Alex's work the price point for his work is well worth it in my opinion and honestly he is one of the "cheaper" artists to commission. in addition, he is highly involved with me when he is putting a piece together and makes changes if needed. Alex has done the most work for me by far of all the artists and I am pretty sure he is getting close to being able to render WP with his eyes closed...heh

by using the same artists I find you get a sense of "stability" behind the characters in question. it promotes a false sense of history, if that makes sense to ya.

every so often I will venture out an get a new piece by another artist to see their "take" on any given character that I may be seeking to get a commission of. and often I get something that is much more than I expected. a good example there is the one of White Peregrine done by Redgvicente which gave WP an almost "Dark Knight" like vibe...art wise. it is probably one of my all time favs. I have others I love by other artists as well...another old one I love is a piece that Jim Tessier did of WP in his CoH costume prior to wings being available. there is also the 3d model one of WP that I love done by Doug Schuler...and the list goes on and on. ...I basically love all the art I have ever recvd, whether it was commissioned or gifted. :)

in regards to your comment regarding Lionseye...yeah...she's usually caught in some dynamic posing...which makes the one of her seated stand out. I like it....a lot. :)

well, having found out CoH

well, having found out CoH made a "return" I jumped back in the pool and it is just as much fun as I remember it. :)

now, just need to see CoT go live at some point in the future but till then I'll be runnin around in the lands of CoH.

on a side note, I can even run it via my phones hotspot. lol thus far no issues. I was curious and thought I would give it a try but was sure the latency would kill it...but low an behold, tethered phone to PC and basically zero lagging. NICE! a bit of background, once I stopped playing mmo's (which basically was around the time CoH closed its doors, for the most part) it wasn't much longer till I killed off my internet as I just didn't need that much power when I could accomplish everything I needed via my phone. when I finally found out CoH was "back" I figured I would try it and see what happened...again, thinkin the latency would kill me but nope. as such, I am once more available to patrol the streets.

makes this kid a happy hero once more. :)

I really like how it came out as well, but unlikely I would ever be able to build it, in any game, given some of the specific pieces that would have 'glowing' effects...not to mention a partial metallic cat helmet. heh

with the return of CoH, I have been working on something but it's tough to come up with something that is even reasonably close. still working on it though. heh

so, made remade a few folks

so, made remade a few folks on Everlasting: whiteperegrine (corr/psi-kin), Citenik (brute/ss-wp), Ms.Majestic (pb/human only), Lionseye (corr/dp-time), Astrogate (cont/grav-time).

Costumes are hit an miss. WP is basically impossible to recreate given the specific look to his costume, so he is constantly a work in progress although I am happy with what I have at the moment. Citenik never really has had a definitive costume (even goin waaaaay back to table top marvel superheroes rpg) so he works just fine. Ms Majestic I can get damn close but had to compromise on the sleeve and chest star look. Lionseye is also extremely close with only some minor variances. Astrogate is a simple one but while I would like a more full eclipse look on the chest symbol best I really have is a plain circle which works...although I may swap to one of the sun symbols.

All that said, if CoT can get their CC to be equal to the initial CoT I suspect I will be a happy camper. I suspect that given the bit we have seen thus far they will not only equal but exceed, in many ways. Now, I just have to wait a bit more.

so as I wait for CoT to

so as I wait for CoT to arrive I have continued onward in CoH. My latest and newest character creation that I believe will be added to my standard stable of heroes is Sovereign Star. I really like the idea and look I have behind him, although I need to sit down and hammer out history/backstory. I need to grab a screen cap of him and then sit down to do some paper/pencil work to see if I can do him some justice. :)

brute...ss/??
I tried Invuln and ran em up to mid twenties but for some reason just not feeling it. thinking of either WP or possibly the new Bio Armor. I like the functions of all the PBoE's at the end and fits a 'star' theme. I will have to look at the animations tonight to see if they jive with my thoughts or get relegated into the ole "hell no!" trash bin. if the latter happens, I suppose I will just go with WP.

Character Creation.

Character Creation.
Now all this is just my opinion but the look of a character is important but just as important is a characters name. A good character name should "suit" the look of the character at hand. in many ways it is part of the characters costume. A bad name can utterly destroy an otherwise cool looking superhero. if the name jives with the look and makes a person say, "oh hell ya!" then mission accomplished. this also adds to the longevity of a character.

given this, I will typically mull over names for a good bit until I find a name that "I" think fits for the looks I have come up with. I have also changed names after a certain amount of time if I come upon something that seems to fit even better and I have done that more times than I can count. yet for all the characters I have come up with I actually have only a few that have stood the test of time (aka decades for some!). no part of their longevity is definately somewhat sentimental but also because they seems like a character that could be used in any major book out there on the shelves today.
if you look at the characters out there we find some general trends...no crazy costumes (for the most part). all characters have a very simplistic look (not counting the 90s when artists went a lil crazy with straps and such). these names are then combined with the very simplistic character designs and voila you now have some of the iconic characters that we know and love/hate today.

"But WP, all the cool names are taken!" Fear not...this is a good thing! there are plenty of names out there that can be simple and cool that have not been used. it is up to you to find them, and effectively "own" them. remember, names are costumes are not mutually exclusive. they compliment one another. also, remember the thesaurus is a great resource to use for alternates and also just to get ideas in general. also, don't be afraid to sit on a character design for a good amount of time. jot down all the variant names you come up with, sometimes inspiration strikes when your looking at a list of names.

long and short. don't skimp on character names, they can ultimately make or break a character concept!
