Spirit of Paragon by DNA-1 Spirit of Paragon by DNA-1
Saw this went live on Facebook today, so here's the complete version.

As many of you know, CITY OF HEROES will be closing its doors shortly. I put this image together fairly quickly, but I hope it will serve to honor the game, Paragon Studios, and the entire CoH community. We definitely had something special here, and I'm sorry to see it go.

The character isn't anyone in particular, but she's meant to evoke several things at once:

--Statesman, the key signature hero and 'face' of CoH, who wears a large white star on his chest
--the blue and white Hero icon
--Paragon Studios itself

Does it "mean" anything? I'll let you be the judge.

-----------------------------

EDIT 4.21.13: By popular demand, this is now available as a print. I've uploaded it at the maximum size too. Cheers!

This is why I don't game as much anymore ..you put many many hours into developing a character and then the game closes down and you have nothing to show for the countless hours you put into it.

That's why I color more and game less now - each line art image is like a boss fight, only now after the fighting of working to paint an image I have (hopefully) a nice piece of art to show for the time I put into it.

I do kind of miss gaming, but I've had far too many hours of work put into leveling and developing characters deleted and nothing to show for it. Art is much more fulfilling and worth while to me now.

Wow, this gives me chills!

Symbolic, in my opinion, of the refusal of the community that made up Paragon City to succumb to the fires of oblivion and the "Coming Storm" which, if you will permit an analogy, turned out to be NCSoft itself.
