Noble Savage by DNA-1 Noble Savage by DNA-1
Noble Savage is a signature character from the CITY OF HEROES expansion CITY OF HEROES: GOING ROGUE and one of my personal favorites. I really enjoy the character's mysterious, tragic storyline.

Incidently, 'Noble Savage' was also my handle on the official COH forums. :)

Yay!! GR is Officially Offical today!!

David, the art on Noble Savage is truly awesome, both your concept art, and the final in-game art. Including the little reference to Lost, which The Wife™ thinks is pretty cool.

Now that I'm free to talk about it, learning Noble Savage's background was a great story. And after learning it, if I was in your position, I think I'd probably snag it as my redname, too. Good call!!

Ha ha. Thanks, man. Glad you caught the Lost ref. I'm a huge fan (and the show's jungle scenes were shot just down the street from my parents' house in Hawaii!!)

I really got to love Noble Savage's backstory as I was chatting back and forth with the Designers who originally wrote it. Did everything I could to make it come alive through the visual character design.

Oooo!! Right down the street!! How awesome is that? =D

Everyone involved in the creation of Noble Savage did an excellent job. All in all, I think he, and Warrant, are my favorite new characters.

That'd be cool, but so far, I don't think ANY mmo has been able to given clearance to run on consoles. PS3 and Xbox don't appear to be too keen on it.

Ever heard of that Linda Hamilton/Ron Perlman tv show called 'Beauty and the Beast'? That's where Noble Savage's cleft lip comes from.

How long have you practiced and worked in the industry, David? Currently trying to break in myself (Digital Animation Course at Uni) and, I've got to say, looking at the sort of stuff I'm up against just makes me feel completely doomed...

Love the pic. Any chance of twisting a few arms to get us pieces like that in game? ;)

Seriously, though, what I wouldnt give to work somewhere like Paragon Studios. Keep up the great work David, 'cos the art in-game has been on the up and up for a good while now.
Although as I keep saying; the old stuff is looking a little dated now =P

I still think he looks kind of sad... Is his story in the game or do characters just meet him as an NPC?

If his story's not in the game... can you give us a hint of his background? ;)

Your character's story intersects with his in a couple of different ways, depending on your choice of alignment. He may be an ally or and enemy to you.

Great ambiguous hero, great ambiguous name, and excellent choice of forum handle. This guy looks like he could draw a line or two.

Look! Up in the sky!
Is it Adamastor, with an improved medical plan?
Is it Backalley Brawler-Kicker, with a headlight and a jet boot?
No, it's Noble Savage! (phew)

<3 Noble.

I'm curious, from a, hmm, background point of view. How many concept arts did you make for, say, Savage, from the establishment of this look to final model? I'd assume there were more, for stuff like his back et cetera.

In addition to this piece, I did a bunch of initial sketches to explore different ideas and later a front/side/back turnaround to show all the various details.
