Sweet Dreams by plangkye Sweet Dreams by plangkye
So the Dream Doctor was my favorite City of Heroes signature character before he was even a signature character, and I'd written him into the Hour Thief's history as a major inspiration and sometimes mentor... when they finally introduced him and he even looked like his costume might have influenced Edmund's, it was just amazing. Favorite part of his design is the Rularuu hands that I didn't even notice right away.


Rights to City of Heroes continue to be held prisoner by NCSoft.

Is this like the Time Lord? Where is he from. I love how you made it, he is very creepy.

He's from City of Heroes, a game that sadly no longer exists - the Dream Doctor was, according to the game's history, one of America's first superheroes, and was sort of like their equivalent to Dr. Strange.

There are a lot of good games that sadly lost to the test of time :(

It was probably the worst MMO shutdown in history - development team was all excited hyping up the next content release, everything looked like it was going fantastic, and then BOOM, NCSoft laid off everyone and gave the announcement that they were shutting off the servers at the end of 2012. They have yet to give an explanation other than "We didn't feel like running this game anymore" and, despite continued interest from other people and an attempt to buy the rights to the game by the former development team, they still have all the IP locked up tight.

Very exciting composition and all-around excellent drawing! The only thing I'm not too fond of is the partial white border around the backdrop. With some of the blue lines bounding the rays of light continuing on in that part of the drawing, it almost looks like it wasn't intentional.

I love how he kind of goes out of the border; it gives it a dynamic look.

Thanks :) I figured it would probably enhance the effect of his reaching toward the viewer.

I know, agh, I remember when I first played the new DA and he was the letter writer and I WAS RIGHT and it was so great...

He must have been added after my time with the game (I only played for the first six months or so although I really, really enjoyed it). Your art style is really great. You are very talented.

He's the founder of the Midnight Squad and had his first mentions on the Circle of Thorns info page on the official site, where it details how he forced them back underground when they were kidnapping and sacrificing children from King's Row, but until the revamp of Dark Astoria earlier this year he remained relatively obscure, only being mentioned in various bits of lore (and writing those letters found in the Ouroboros missions).

Oh, all of that brings back wonderful memories :) I really loved the setting and the lore, it was a truly great game. It's a shame it's gone. Judging from your art, you have great taste in games. I actually intially became aware of you when using some of your excellent Morrowind (my absolute favorite CRPG) mods and then ran across your art here. You are very talented.

Not much to congratulate, it's not like they're paying me or anything. :P
