Escalation Reward Art by Bambs79 Escalation Reward Art by Bambs79
:iconshag49931: has worked really hard on his City of Heroes role-play arcs, to the point where he's even commissioned reward art as a thank you to those who've played them! This is for his Escalation arc. The custody line up shows the 5 stages of Dr Erica Lashion's clone growth, starting with her original self at just a meagre 4 ft in height!

Artwork: The first character was lifted from the promotional poster and done digitally, whilst the remaining 4 (new) characters were all grey-scaled with markers and then coloured digitally in photoshop.

If you haven't stopped by ETJ's page then click on the link above, or if you like CoH roleplay, get involved with the Escalation arc, it's had good reviews!

Hope y'all enjoy!

:D

Thanks man, yeah, I think the whole growth thing has gotta be done carefully, I'm always conscious of not making the women too masculine. This was a fun job to do 'cos I was given the CoH designs and got to adapt 'em for the reward art.

Thanks for the comment dude, cheers! :w00t:

I really love how you did this with the escalating scale and the development into the different body forms.

Thanks, I had to draw a scale out on A2 paper and then draw them all (except the first one) next to one another so that everything lined up ok. Thanks for faving it, cheers! :D

Is the height measurements correct? B/c at normal stage, she is tiny.

:iconbambs79:
Bambs79 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, the guy who created her character says that when she starts out, she's barely 4 foot tall, very petite. This contributes to her obsession with becoming bigger and stronger, so that people take note of her rather than ignore her. So yes, the height scale is correct!

Cheers! :w00t:

Great job, Rob.

To anyone thinking about buying a commission from Rob, he's easy to work with, and always does great work.

For any curious City of Heroes players, or people who just geek out on the background of such things, here's how it progresses:

Stage One (far left): Underdeveloped, mass-produced clone body of Dr. Erica Lashion. Rank is only Minion class. Powersets are Robotics Mastermind and Devices.

Stage 2: Fully grown clone. Ready to fight personally. Uses "electro-gauntlets". Up to Leiutenant rank. Powersets: Electric Melee and Willpower.

Stage 3: Starts using the name "Escalation", since her schtick is now coming back stronger each time. Rank: Boss. Powersets: Mace / Invulnerability.

Stage 4: aka "Escalation 2.0". Rank: Elite Boss. Powersets: Super-Strength / Invulnerability.

Stage 5: aka "Escalation Extreme", the version for the big climactic fight in Mission Five. Rank: Archvillain. Powersets: Super-Strength / Invulnerability with almost all possible powers selected in both sets.

I like stage one, look wise. But height wise there is something left to be desired.
Reply
:iconshag49931:
Shag49931 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
At that stage, Dr. Lashion doesn't grow her clone bodies to full-size. She grows 'em smaller in the nutrient baths so she can crank 'em out quicker and get back to her criminal activities after each defeat. Quantity over quality.

Kinda tricky, ETJ wanted the original character be really diminutive, hence the 4ft height, but there aren't many people who are naturally that little I suppose. I think the idea of the line up to show the growth works ok though.

Cheers! :thanks:

I wonder, is it appropriate to reduce the scale of the head of a larger female character, not unlike the ones here, as one might do with a larger male character. An example being the hulk who has a tiny head in proportion to his body.
Reply
:iconbambs79:
Bambs79 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Good question. I was reluctant at first but I only made the last character 10 heads high, the other 4 are all 8 so still in relative proportion. I think that number 5's still feminine enough though, i.e. short torso, long legs etc. That's the idea though with the hulk and characters of that ilk, the heads are generally smaller on purpose in contrast with the rest of the body to convey how bulky they are.

Shag49931 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
I think it works. The head isn't too small in relation to the body, and it gives her an overall sense of bigness.
