Commission: Centauri vs Ablaze by Kostmeyer Commission: Centauri vs Ablaze by Kostmeyer
This is a commission for :iconclockwerksoul: in return for paying for my DU membership for the next few months! It features his character Ablaze of the All-Stars, fighting Centauri.

DU: Ablaze by ClockwerkSoul Centauri DU Handbook entry by Kostmeyer

Ablaze was fun to draw - I drew her once before a long time ago as part of an ensemble cast piece and this was the first time I really looked into the character. She's a super-strong She Hulk type, but what I found interesting reading her profile is that as well as getting bigger and stronger the angrier she gets, she also radiates heat - a nice twist on the Hulk idea - so I thought we'd use it here.

ClockwerkSoul wanted to have her fighting Centauri, and the 'mind controlled heroine fight' made me think of this earlier drawing, which I reworked to suit Centauri's spacey origins!

Hope you like it Patrick!

Thanks BC! I've had it in the works for ages but only just had the time to finish it off properly. Drawing time has been a bit restricted lately but I'm making a push to get my commissions done by the new year if I can - so hopefully some stuff for you soon! That said, it's probably going to take me a year to clear my inbox here! So much to catch up on!

Thanks for the kind words and the :+fav: anyway - much appreciated!

Don't worry, there can't be a lot of stuff from me in your inbox.
At least nothing interesting for you, mostly cosplay shots.

I haven't drawn anything since that lonely Fallen A.N.G.E.L.S. page and right now it doesn't look like there was a change in sight anywhere soon.
Only have the weekends currently and I do not feel like drawing. The itch is gone.
Maybe if I had a couple of days off, it would return ... but my next vacation will be in March 2017 and it comes with some travelling attached, so I doubt it will be much help.

Sorry to hear that you're not feeling it at the moment, but you can never tell when the arty muse will strike next! How's the villain contest going? Might chuck something in if a good idea occurs but I haven't really checked in on it since the start.

I know, it is ( unfortunately ) not my first artistic draught. It can return at any given time ... or maybe it won't :shrug:
I'm no longer phased by it.

The contest is going pretty good, I'd say.
Have some nice entries so far. But one more is always welcome :-)

There must be some stories you want to tell - you have so many characters that there must be one or two that you've never been able to give the time to - I'd love to team up for a story but I don't have the time to draw - but I am up for a joint commission if you can think of a good opportunity for a team up :)

As for the villain contest - I need to catch up on the inbox and see what's already been done - but yeah - it could happen :)

I don't think the contest so far has anything that you would do.
Here's the link:

CONTEST: New Villain for the BC UniverseEDIT: My explanation skills seem to be a bit rusty as of late. Looks like I forgot to add some necessary details ^^;
I added to the rules of this contest the limit of entries I will allow ( or lack thereof ) and what kind of entries ( drawings, animation, etc. ) will be accepted.
T'is the season to do evil! :iconevilgrinplz:
Ladies, gentlemen, dear pets of my fellow dAddicts,
today, I wanna start a new contest! ( hopefully that will bring me back into drawing, too :fingerscrossed: )
The BC Universe needs a new Villain.
So welcome to the
CREATE A VILLAIN CONTEST!!
What do I want from you: I want you do design a male stand alone villain for my rogue's gallery :-)
What's in it for you ( prize ): To the winner goes a full year of CORE MEMBERSHIP on my bill!
( not to mention, you will forever be mentioned in my works as the original creator of said character )
RULES:
The rules are simple: I want a comic book-ish supervillain, a stand alone character


True, there are several stories, especially about the Fallen A.N.G.E.L.S., but
A) I won't start anything new until I finished the ongoing thing and
B) what good is it to spent every free minute at my drawing desk if like two people care for the product?

I kept telling myself that no comments didn't necessarily ment nobody cared, but right now, I myself don't have the passion or the attention span to tell those stories anymore.
If I won't do it for me, I'll do it for those who care. But if nobody cares, why bother?

The point isn't whether anyone else cares - it's whether you do! People always respond more I find to the single images than they do the comic strip stuff, simply because you don't have to think about it so much - you can take it in and respond more quickly. Plus F.A is a self contained project that usually just involves your characters - so it's not really designed to hook in new readers. And why should it? If you love it, do it! But not for number of comments. :)

Thanks! It was fun to draw - I like Ablaze's design but haven't really had a chance to draw her up until now. And obviously drawing Centauri is never a chore!

Things are really starting to heat up in the intergalactic gladiator arena!  was that a pun? 

Wow, this is an incredibly intense scene!  Great job :)

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Edited Dec 11, 2016
I might come back to the arena scene at some point - either this version or the earth one in the Catz picture - what do you think?
Reply
:iconkenfusion45:
kenfusion45 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2016
I honestly like them both.  

The galactic one gives it an otherworldly feel that matches the fantastic scenario the heroines are caught in.  Maybe it fits better with a Silver Age type story where the reader can escape to another world where such events take place regularly.  

The Earth one suggests decadence a little more overtly, with the human crowd finding perverse amusement in watching good forced to fight against good.

Maybe you are on to something with deciding where the contest takes place based on who the combatants involved are.  If say, Batman were forced to fight Daredevil, it should be on Earth.  Wonder Woman versus She-Hulk?  Outer space would be great for that.

And now my interest is peaked!  Looking forward to the next Superhero gladiator battle.  Heck, if Vigil is involved, I would put it back in Roman times, complete with Coliseum and maybe even one spectator eating a loaf of bread! ;)

Somebody had to do that pun - glad we got it out of the way early! Thanks for the kind words and the :+fav: - much appreciated! Trying to get my commissions out of the way before the New Year... we'll see! Things are pretty busy at work but I'm going to give it my best shot!
