Thanks everyone for your help…it was hard to pick a name with so many great choices. However, we have a winner. Thank you to Vampyrist for naming my new villain, the OGRE!!! To show my appreciation, you are entitled to one LiveWyre style redesign of any character of your choosing. Thanks to everyone again.March 30, 2015 at 7:36 pm #122303
I don’t mean to make my thread political, but I wanted to address a matter very dear to me to this community because I have always felt accepted by this community:
Today is March 30…and today is the first ever recognized “World Bipolar Day”, drawing attention to the daily struggles that people who live with Bipolar Disorder deal with. March 30th was selected for this purpose because it is Vincent Van Gogh’s birthday, Van Gogh being an incredibly influential historical figure who was posthumously diagnosed with Bipolar DIsorder. I am the one and only LIVEWYRE, and I struggle and survive with Bipolar Disorder.March 30, 2015 at 10:22 pm #122310
I’ve known two people who are bipolar and seen the toll it takes on them and their relationships. I hope you’re doing better with it. As someone with his own neurological issues, I know it can be lonely, even when you’re surrounded by friends and family.March 31, 2015 at 7:40 am #122321
Your brave voice only makes you stronger! All the best, brother!
p.s. OGRE is freakin’ bada$$. Love it!March 31, 2015 at 6:47 pm #122353
Thanks for sharing Livewyre. When people come forward and share their stories it can be very comforting to others to know that they are not so alone. My partner struggles with depression. This was a long winter for us, but the sun is out and the days are getting brighter. All the best to you Livewyre.April 1, 2015 at 10:24 am #122376
Thank you all…this community has always made a life long outsider like me feel welcome and accepted, and once again I am humbled to count myself among you.
@ AMS – thanks for mentioning OGRE. I’m thinking a tech guy named Ogre is a perfect villain for a super soldier named the White Knight!April 1, 2015 at 1:16 pm #122378
Are we getting a White Knight update…..?April 2, 2015 at 9:02 pm #122457
…perhaps…April 3, 2015 at 3:49 pm #122489
NEW VILLAIN!!!! This idea actually started as a throw-away ridiculous idea, but as I was designing him, a story started to form. I’m calling him Gerard Marquis de la Fue, known to the world as Candelabra. He can generate and control fire. Think Magneto meets French aristocracy…one of the villains who is not necessarily physically intimidating, but his control of his power and his education makes him a huge threat. What do you guys think??April 3, 2015 at 4:00 pm #122491
I think his face is awesome.
I can see what you were going for with the yellow costume (trying to make him look like a gold candlestick), but I’m not really a huge fan of the colour choice. It swamps the glow from the flames and makes it much less impressive than it would have looked with a darker colour, or a colour the is radically different to the glow colour. But that’s just my opinion. Also, I’ve just noticed that the bottom half of the robe doesn’t match up properly with the top half where they meet around the waist. They match on the outside but the inner edge is slightly out of line. Maybe mask each side to an individual square and adjust the width to fit.
But still, I like the overall look of the character (if we take the yellow out of the equation) and the concept it pretty cool. Few minor tweaks needed that’s all.April 3, 2015 at 4:02 pm #122492
Good calls all around JR…I start the tweeking…April 3, 2015 at 10:41 pm #122497
That face, though.
I agree with what JR said. The yellow on the costume could be a little warmer, if that makes sense. Otherwise, I love it.April 4, 2015 at 8:30 am #122509
The face is awesome. Cheers!April 5, 2015 at 5:02 pm #122575
