COH Commission 5 by DNA-1 COH Commission 5 by DNA-1
Just completed this for :iconsupermaorifulla: (thanks, man!).

He asked me to draw a 'dramatic entrance shot' in which his City of Heroes character (Comrade Hero) emerges from a portal to the amazement of that world's heroes. Very much like a comic book splash page, I think.

My top priority with this was to create some drama with the blue backlight, making Comrade Hero come forward and ' pop' compositionally. Hope that's working!

Awesome Pic, the energy trail from the portal is very effective :D

Where can I enter a comission demand and who do you take Paypal :P

All your work is so well done, I've been lucky to have 2 characters in the CoH comics but they have ended. I'll have to see about having you do a commision for a character. Keep bringing on the smiles.

I just read that you did the coloring in this one. What program ( if any) do you use? I have Painter 10/X and PS cs3 and im just not the best with the tablet and 'puter.

Photoshop CS, but I don't use any special filters or anything. Any version of PS works.

Pretty tall order, but I'd say you pulled it off really well.

The heros of 'this' world show their surprise and disdain while Comrade Hero confidently emerges from the portal's blue light and drifts unafraid into their world.

Beautiful coloring job. I especially like the subtle glow around Comrade Hero. It gives him a sort of other-wordly quality.

Yeah I know. I'm wordy as hell.

do you use air brush paint ink or Digital to color?

No need to create a CoH character. I'll draw anyone you like. :) And to answer your question, I use Photoshop for most of my coloring.

I love his expression, and the way the aura of light around him kinda blends into the wispy flames trailing from him to the portal. Top notch, as always!

(What Yakov Smirnov is saying about Comrade Hero...)

In America, crime destroys cities and the citizens fear criminals at every turn.

IN SOVIET RUSSIA, CRIMINALS FEAR YOU!
