It just dawned on me that I have been doing commissions for the City of Heroes™ community for a little over two years now.
Though I have never, EVER played on this online game, I think I pretty much know how the game design system works. Basic elements such as belt buckle designs, shoulder plates, logos, capes, cowls and armors. I pretty much drew every combination.
Two years. I can’t believe it.
The image on the left is the very first commission I’ve been asked to draw. The character is named Kore, with her alter ego Courtney by her left side (her left, not yours). She was created by Ashley Johns. The finished image was done and posted on my DeviantART account on October 18, 2005. I was recommended by a fellow deviant EvilMark who is a friend of the commissioning party.
I kind of wonder how this character’s been throughout these 2 years. If my drawing still holds true to her design.
That started it all. From then on, I probably have drawn more CoH and CoV characters than anything else, and I have been introduced to a lot of original characters. Both the generated 3D ones and their creators. Some are great to work with, while a few have been somewhat of a pain.
And I don’t think I’m going to stop anytime soon. As of this post, I have three CoH commissions to finish by November.
Two years. About 50 individual original characters.
Here’s to drawing more.
