~Say Hi. Get welcomed!~

Figured we should have a thread for when people pop up here in
the artz section they can say hi and introduce themselves.

So let me start by saying welcome everyone (to the best part of the forums!) and hi, I'm Christopher.
I'm a 7+ year veteran of City of Heroes, artist and builder of custom computers. I had a small
artz thread in the Official Forums 606 that some of you may have seen.

I was one (of the many) artists giving away gift artz for birthdays contest prizes and just to practice
my art in general. Most were line art as I come from a self taught, pencil drawing
background but towards the end I was learning to paint digitally.

Occasionally I get to mix all my skillz into one project.

Sup Crown here....Been with

Sup Crown here....Been with COH to the bitter end. I have since retired every one of them as player characters. Instead I've recreated them and have plans to begin my own comic universe. I'm not an artist but my cousin (who was a COH player) are writers (She is more than I am.) Right now we are working on a Fantasy graphic Novel in need of art. So I'm trying to learn. I've posted my character Kendrick, fill free to tell me what you think...Story and Art which ever.

I'm Fireheart, played as @ Astemus on CoH for years. In that time, I was active on the Forums, as well. I have a bit of the artistic eye, but my hands may as well be bricks, when it comes to creating art. I've created hundreds of characters and most of them have some backstory. My favorites, of course, generally have significant backstory, even if I haven't articulated it all.

Be Well!

Hello All, my level 50 main

Hello All, my level 50 main on COH was Lady Judgment, an invulnerability/ super strength/ fire mastery tanker... her colors were based off of Spider Woman (like my avatar), but she was the maximum height from the character creator. I originally started on Virtue, but migrated to Liberty where I joined an all artist, art collector supergroup from members of the art forum, called the Envisionaries. Like others in the art forum, I often did free art of other players characters, to get better at my comic art, which eventually became entirely digital. I will answer to the name Bobby or LJ in reverence to my old toon...

EDIT:

Forgot to add, it is great to see so many old friends here. Loosing COH was heart breaking, doubly so for losing the art forums. I have kept in touch with some players via my account on Deviant Art where I used to do commissions, and a few select players from my old supergroup who have become real life friends.

I miss Juggy's thread on how to request fan art... stickied at the top of the forum.

Welcome guys!

Welcome guys!
@ Bobby: Yeah that's one of the threads I wish I had backed up before the forums disappeared (I did manage to save some of them). You can always ask Ed to re-post it when he pops up here (I've sent him notes about the game and forum already).

Howdy all, thanks CR for

Howdy all, thanks CR for giving me the heads-up about the new digs. Masked Shrike here. I had no idea there was a forum, and I'm so glad to see there is. I spent many happy hours browsing through the CoH Art forum and DA. I have missed the game and the art community, but I did get a pretty good keepsake out of the deal! PC and I have been pretty busy settling him in here in the States, but we still talk about the old days in Paragon.

I'm not an artist, just an art w...uh, appreciator and commissioner. My main characters back on CoH were the Masked Shrike (Victory and later Virtue) and PinUp Girl (Virtue). I made them over in CO and I drop in there from time to time, but I just can't seem to love CO. Nothing against CO, it has a lot of good stuff going on, but it just doesn't click with me. Maybe eventually.

We did contribute to the CoT Kickstarter, and we are really looking forward to the day we can run around Titan City.

I'm looking forward to seeing some cool art and other swell stuff. Good to see some familiar faces!

Hi! Brand X, started CoH

Hi! Brand X, started CoH during the infamous Winter Event, stayed until the end! Not much of an artist myself, but I did have a thread on the CoH forums for all my commissions! Which has continues and will continue! I have a lot of high hopes for CoT! Why I too had to give to the KS!

Hey everyone, I was

Hey everyone, I was Funkatronic Felina back on CoH, I mainly joined CoH back in about 2009 or so, and I had the most fun in an MMO to date. The character creation was amazing and I loved how many types of heroes you coudl create. I only loved it more once I got Funky to Level 50 and started doing the Incarnate stuffs.

I was so dismayed at what happened to CoH because so much of it was unanswered, at the time I was hoping to adjust Funka to a more Original setting than the CoH-verse to give her a future after the shut down of CoH. So once I saw Roxikat (Rocket Cat), who also was a friend of mine on CoH, advertising the kickstarter. I had to pay for it, just to have Funkatronic Felina live again in a great Superhero MMO!

Funka wasn't my only hero on CoH, I just kept on making different heroes, Like Inflato Mascot (A nerdy guy who through science accidenly make an inflatable Wolf Football Mascot Suit become like a Wearable inflatable super suit that would give him powers)
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/45705431/Inflata%20Mascot.jpg

I hope there will be a way for me to recreate my heroes on City of Titans.

I am Gideon formerly Gideon_B in the CoH forums. The creator of the one and only trenchcoat and shade wearing sword wielding immortal in CoH. Over the years the character has gone through some changes but he is still recognizable. I made the CoH art forums my home during my time there. Was a member of The Envisionaries along with Bobby and others from the art forum. :)

Kaos Kitteh here, was once Magda_Adair on the forums, usually haunted the RP forums.

Mains were:

Magda Adair -50 Emp/Dark defender, Fatesong - Warshade (previously in the reciprocators), and (among a billion other alts), P. Sapiens rev.2- SS/Invul tanker

(Red)
Hunger-(continuously remade, ended up as:) 45 Psy/Pain, A-109-50 Bots/FF Mastermind, (Both started life in the Renegade Misfits)

Started in the beginning of CoH, and stayed till the bitter, terrible end. I art when I don't have arter's block (like right now, grrrrr), and sometimes nab someone's character to art for them just for the practice ('stolen' with permission, of course! =P) And I DJ for NameSake Radio.

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

Sorry. It seemed like a good idea at the time. That is why I usually end up chasing commissions instead. Here's a quickie crowd favorite from the good old days, the part of a lunatic idea that actually worked:

I don't remember what my CoH

I don't remember what my CoH forum handle was but I played on and off the entire length of the games life span. Cecilia Drake, aka: Darkavia was one of my mains toward the end of the game and I posted a lot of fan art around that time. So... yeah, hello I guess?

PS: I couldn't help but notice Envee's Avatar. I tend not to think that highly of my work so I'm shocked to see you still have that after all this time. Thanks for a little perspective.

Heya Twizded. You got my note

Heya Twizded. You got my note then?
Welcome to the best part of the forums (the artz section naturally ), good to see you.


Well I remember your avatar was this teddy with nunchaku but I'm not sure if
you ever posted in my artz thread. If you did I could tell you what
your name was since I archived my thread and a few others.

P.S. Not sure what ya mean man, everyone I ever saw talk about your art on the forums spoke very highly of your lines.
I wonder if you ever read their posts? You have an immediately recognizable style and not everyone can say that.


I used to think like that too but there are still a half dozen or so people with avatars I drew floating around.
Caemgen took one of my first drawings on the forums and made it his avatar and now 5 years later
he still uses it everywhere... the guy has commissioned literally hundreds of pieces of art
(almost 600 in his DA gallery and that's not even the full collection) and he could've
easily changed it for something better at any time but it's still there.
I guess they see something we don't. */em shrug*

Thanks CR. I'm definitely my harshest critic and often pick apart anything I do.

These forums are like a rewind to the "good ol' days". It's an odd feeling to see so many familiar faces (or in this case avatars) but I loved City of Heroes like no other game before or after it. So I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise to see everyone here.

PS: Sure thing, Lord Goat. PM me if you want and I'll pop by some time.

We can be our best ally or our worst critics... often both.


Same. I played it from issue2 all the way to sunset and no other game has come close
before or since for me. I'm over here pushing so hard and helping however I can
because I am hoping CoT will bring our scattered community home.


Make us super again!
