CITY of HEROES Key Art by DNA-1 CITY of HEROES Key Art by DNA-1
Marketing artwork created for CITY OF HEROES FREEDOM.

Idea here was to show an epic clash of the titans, featuring all the signature characters from the CoH universe, including heroes, villains, and Praetorians. Players are represented as well, in the form of the character wearing Ascension Armor (only available to post level 50 players).

Did this at movie poster size (36 x 24 in.) at 600 dpi, so the file's HUGE. Lots and lots of detail on every character as well.

Is there any reason why this artwork isn't also used in the loading screen! People hated the version that was used with a vengeance :S And this one is a slightly 250% better :D

Suffice to say, it's complicated. I formatted it with the loadscreen in mind, but it just wasn't to be. Maybe we'll see it used somewhere else in the future.

I wish we could have this as a loading screen. And not have it force-changed. I love this pic more than any of the other loading screen arts. It's that cool.

This is my favorite image from the whole game. The other loading screen was good - but now I would like to ask the person(s) responsible for selection why they didn't pick this one instead.

Heh. I have a new desktop background! Excellent work, there are a few anatomy and technique issues I see, but definitely nothing so distracting as to take away from the work :3

I also wish this were the loading screen! I'm a Statesman fangirl, though, but I feel that just because he's dead doesn't mean he has to be removed from the art!

I'd love to see this get more use of course, but since I'm on a different project now, you guys will probably have to ask Zwillinger about it. :)

Make sure to tell Zwillinger--popular demand from the community is probably the only way that'd happen. :)

I agree! i'd rather this than what we had/have now. I like Penny but... I think this should have been the loader.
