CITY of HEROES Key Art 2 by DNA-1 CITY of HEROES Key Art 2 by DNA-1
One last marketing illustration of CITY of HEROES' most iconic hero, Statesman, who died in Signature Story Arc #1, Chapter 5. This image was used all over the place--on the website and as a loadscreen as well.

The stark white light (of Heaven?) is just beginning to dissolve the figure's silhouette at its edge, which feels appropriate for a tribute piece.

Hi, I kind of made fanart of this picture. [link]
Forgive me, it's quite silly.

Well. You can always do some issue specific art for your fans here, and if you frame it right we can use Neo's Login Screen changer to have our own customized Login screen.

Mine is currently showing the graphic that is on the Going Rogue Razer Sphez of Desdemona. It took almost no skill (thank goodness since I have no artistic skill) to get rid of the logo.

I'll be saving this image to use at times as well as the one you released a day or two ago.

I think my only crit is that his right leg looks a little too thin for his body and muscle size. Like, his left leg, which is further away, somehow looks more bulky than the right, which should be large due to the laws of perspective.

Still, I really liked this piece. The only other crit is that it lasted so short a time before being replaced with the one we have now...which I don't like at all -_-

Yeah, I wish we'd kept it around longer too, but the new plan was always to have issue-specific art going forward. We'll see if that holds true next issue.

Having a tool to let players pick their loading screen would be cool. I know that's not your area, but it might be worth mentioning to folk at work? =P

Magic Eight Ball says "Unlikely." Sadly, I know what the programmers would say if I brought this up: too low a priority given all the other features they're working on.

Someone still needs beating to hire some actual UI monkeys. Rather than out of house UI monkeys. The Market still nearly crashes the game whenever I load it...

Anyhow /tangent. I'd apply for any art or writing jobs if 1) there were any, 2) I wasn't in the UK, heh

Art jobs occassionally get posted on Paragon's site. I know we were looking for a good character artist recently.

I'm still not up to the kind of standard you guys seem to keep, though. Besides, still in the UK, so crossing the pond could be a problem. Iunno, maybe I'll get that good someday :XD:

Is it wrong of me to miss Emperor Cole more? A more developed, more compelling version? :)

Did you do any images of him? I think you did, for those Praetorian layouts?

<-- has a character named Emperor's Adul8r who won't be leaving Praetoria. Ever.

Emporer Cole's great! I didn't do much with him personally--just his statue and iconography really. My biggest contributions to the Praetorian sigs were probably Noble Savage, Mother Mayhem, Neuron, and Marauder.

No matter how many jokes were cracked by others about this particular art as the login screen, this was the best one in my opinion. it was really fitting.

Thanks, man. I thought the jokes were pretty cheap. There's essentially no detail on that part of the image, so you see what you want to see, I guess. :p

Even still, I always saw this as a very strong and defiant... heroic pose.

(In other news, I went through my old screenshots and found one of my brute going through the Rogue > Hero mission cosplaying as Statesman. I still laugh about that one.)
