DU: Freedom War Page 1 by Gaston25 DU: Freedom War Page 1 by Gaston25
Done for the June challenge over at :icondeviantuniverse:

The challenge:
Freedom War: Chapter 1 – Dark Future
It's time for our second annual DU crossover event! In the not-so-distant future, our heroes (and villains) are being hunted and terminated by Enforcers, deadly machines that are controlled by Pixel, a once peaceful and loving member of Thunder Force. Pixel has reverted to his original programming, and seeks to destroy all meta-humans on the planet. Many meta-humans have already perished, and only a few have survived to fight a battle they know they can’t win. Can they somehow tip the odds in their favor, and restore their world as it once was?

I have teamed up with :iconkostmeyer: and his character, Vigil for this story. My character, Nightshrike is a villain so it will be interesting to see these two work together! Now that the first page is completed, it is his turn for page two!

I really like the lettering. I was wondering what program you use? And where I can find that font? I have Manga Studio, but their comic style font is cheap and cheesy. I'd appreciate the help, Thanks
Keep up the good work!

I use photoshop for all my digital work, and I use a couple of sites to download new fonts. The dialogue font I used for this page I downloaded from Blambot [link]

Dafont is also a good site for fonts: [link]

Thanks for the kind words too!

Nice establishing scene - I love the future version of Nightshrike and the voice over is a pretty cool way in. Didn't expect Vigil's astral form to be a floating head on a screen though! That's going to limit things a bit! Hmmm....

Damn! Sorry about that K, wasn't thinking of limiting you to just head shots. Was just trying to get the ball rolling. I'm sure with you can draw a full bodied astral Vigil and no one would be the wiser!

It'd be a bit weird to change it now, but we'll see what we can do!

I don't think it would be weird at all. In fact, I can re-draw that last panel if you want. That way it's a little more of a team up. I feel bad...

LOL! Don't! I've already started floaty head Vigil in the next page! It's not a big deal, don't worry about it. You're drawing 'real Vigil' when she appears though! I need to get some proper Vigil art out of you at some point! lol!

I'm certain you both won't! I was actually kind of curious how Vigil would react to this month... considering she's FROM the future isn't she?

Gaston25 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012
She is, but the future is never certain

Been seeing different artists pair off to work on the June Challenge. (Myself included) Its always interesting to see a hero and a villain working together in a situation like this.

Looking forward to what you both will bring to the DU. :D
