Mother Mayhem by DNA-1 Mother Mayhem by DNA-1
Concept art of Mother Mayhem, one of the signature characters fromCITY OF HEROES: GOING ROGUE.

As one of Emperor Cole's top Praetors (aka lieutenants), Mother casts a very large shadow over the game's lore. She heads up a vast network of psychics called the Seers, whose sole responsibility is to make sure the populace is thinking appropriate thoughts.

As much as I can't stand her, I would love to have her wardrobe as actual costume pieces. Those boots are absolutely fantastic! (The chains on the trench are pretty cool too!)

Love your artwork. This game is so beautiful looking and the character design feature is awesome. Sure wish it wasn't an MMO.

Actually, I play it as a 1-player solo game. I don't have time for social teaming, raiding etc., so I just make myself a kick-ass scrapper or mastermind, and I'm a one-man army. Also, the game can be played completely for free now, so take a look if you're interested. :)

Love the looks and the setup of all these games, and all the wonderful design work that artists like you do. It's just the mechanics that are flawed.

I remember in this game, just to get one accolade I wanted, I would have had to do like like ten taskforces that required 5 to 8 hours each!! of grinding with a group, being reliant on their attention span. I mean, "woa" I might get one day a year where I can piss away an entire day just to play a game. It would take me seven years just to get the one little accolade I wanted! No thank you sir, that does not fall into my "being able to play it solo" category, LOL.

I had a model who got involved in CoH and then another game, WoW, I think. She wasted her best modeling years years sitting in front of the computer, getting caught up in drama with guild or whatever it was she was in, missing out on jobs and shoots, not working out, neglecting her relationships, just to get some super doodads for her character. She lost her fiance, her sanity, her awesome body, and many opportunities in life, all over a fucking video game. I never would have believed it. She would have been better off just shooting heroine or snorting coke, at least you can still go out and do "something" when you are high.

I would mark it up to craziness, but I have seen it happen to many people. I think if you sit anyone in front of a computer game for over a thousand hours a year, they are destined to go barking mad!

Eek. Sounds horrible. :( I find that I'm good after an hour or two, and I'm grateful to have that 'off' switch. Incidentally, and on a more upbeat note, I wanted to mention how much I enjoy your photography. Easily some of the best on DA, and I always look forward to your posts. :)

Still, I am a huge fan of superheroes and I actually like the CoH concepts, the character classes, the powers, the animations, the costume creation is just the best thing ever in any game I have seen!!! That's the positive. You do such amazing work there. It's the whole "you know" of MMO that loses me. "time" I am one of those people who is good after 30 minutes :) - which is why I stick to Madden Football. ;)

Thanks for the compliment. I actually got into photography so I could understand people better, especially women. I am a fantasy author and my first novel was a real miss for me, I spent 30 years creating my world but my prose was not quite there, writing is so difficult.

The photography helped me understand people better, especially women, and since my chief protagonist is a girl, I kinda needed that! Now, ten years later, I just finished my second novel, it's a big epic fantasy about 800 pages worth... and this time it's good, thank god! I am doing my rewrite and synopsis and looking for an agent. Who knows where it will lead, eh? Maybe I toil as a journeyman novelist, maybe I get lucky and I am the next George Martin or Robert Jordan. Who knows, maybe one day I will show up knocking at your door with wads of cash, begging you to help illustrate a graphic novel, or do the concept art for the feature movie! :nod: Dream big... that's the key.

Well, that'd be incredibly cool--hope you strike the big time! :) Likewise, I'd love to be in a financial position where I can commission original top-end photography with great models, like Adam Hughes or Alex Ross. Now that I'm using a more photo-sourced style, especially. So when I strike it rich, I'll come calling as well.

The Seers' influence is more like the power of suggestion, I imagine, and your character's got enough mental fortitude to withstand it.

Yea, i can't stand to use the witch boots due to that :|
And the new organic armor boots are kinda big foot as well, but it's at least not as obvious as it is on withc boots.

*pokes David*

Please fix witch boots :D

I've heard that said before. Will look into it, but rest assured, we're trying really hard to port over all the upcoming enemy group costume parts for players. LOTS of cool stuff coming b/c of that.

Think that's scary, try playing through her story arc.

Here's a hint: The Seers really don't have a choice in the matter, but none of them are rebels.
