Basically, this is that inevitable topic I have to make where I explain I used to be good at art, but now I just want other people to do it for me. Most of the time.

I've racked up quite a few commission pieces over the years. Naturally, most of them feature City of Heroes characters, though CO has a small representation now. For example:

Atomac and Particle Man | ~zany88 (this was a surprise from Reldin, thank you!)
Wheelman | ~Taclobanon

Most of the pieces that I do get are found in my deviantArt favorites gallery (there are a few in my actual gallery because their original artists haven't posted them).

On today's episode of "Epe can actually make some things!", I managed to churn out this in my boredom.

Quickly posting this before Reldin does.

Hooray for random presents.

The very belated CORPFes art for Atomac. It uses new design I came up with rather than the version I placed with back in Sept. It was worth it~!

How about some screenshots? Some you've seen before and one you haven't!










OK, on that last one I cheated and used a smudge to try and get that effect I was looking for. The other two are unaltered.

These look awesome dude! I -really- like the Sludd one, effect or no it works so well.

Question though, what the heck is the little collar guy on Wheelman?

Wheelman's collar piece is from the Luchadore costume set. You can grind out PvP Acclaim for individual pieces or drop Zen for the entire pack.

Pixel Man strikes again! Not even the mighty leader of the Eternals is immune to his power!

(You know, I kinda want to do this a little more for random people as a commission thing. Not for much, but...)

Minor update-y thing.

The Sludd pic (from my last post) got featured on the Champions Online Facebook page!

Vocalizer and Spectralwing | ~EryckWebbGraphics

This week on "Epelesker actually commissioned a thing with money", I'm sharing this piece of two characters originally from City of Heroes. Vocalizer (my character on the left) and Spectralwing (a friend of mine) were leaders of a particular supergroup back in the old game.

Action Trooper | ~DBed (David Bednarski)

Another CoH piece caps off what could be my last commissioned work for a while-- but really, I personally think I saved the best for last this time.

What I'll say about this piece is that under normal circumstances, you wouldn't catch me dead running around with a character that uses guns as their form of combat. Trooper was a huge exception to that rule.

As part of Agent Canada's recent DC Versus Dust-Up art lottery, I got to have the chance to have a character of mine be defeated by a mainstream villain. Thus...

Atomac vs. Mr. Mxyzptlk in "Ripped" | ~AgentCanada

That's... probably might be as painful as it looks.

That does look rather painful. And great artwork all around. :D

Whew, been a while.

As you might have seen in his own thread, Masamundane's done some freebie minimalist vectors for Wheelman and Sludd. (I think Atomac will be done too, but we'll see about his busy schedule with other requests.)

I have extra commission money as well, so there's one other project coming down the pipe for now. I feel like splurging a little after surviving my first month at the new job, so there might be even more. :D

Wheelman | ~EryckWebbGraphics
This man. Does not disappoint. Also, given Wheels' SG affiliation, I figure that this had to happen at some point since quite a few member used to get art from him.

This was livestreamed as well, but I had to work through it.

I'll update with the proper link once the artist posts on his dA account, but I have to share this now.

Sludd | ~wonderfully-twisted
As part of my commission splurge, I had to check out this artist, since he happens to be familiar with CO! While he only seems to take black-and-white lineart and shading at the moment, he more than knocked this one out of the park, he did.

EDITed with the dA link, of the presentation version.

Set of 9 Commissions | ~phil-cho
Finally got on the bandwagon here and managed to get some busts of some characters, including Atomac, Wheelman, Sludd and (for the first time ever) Poltermask.

But Epe, you say, that only makes four, doesn't it? Where are the other ones?

As it turns out, I did end up gifting a not-so-random selection of people with some artwork as well.

Great stuff, and thanks for the Thundrax commission (posted on the other thread.)

Do you have a link for the artist's DA page?
