Quinn Royce:Saber Bio by Dualmask Quinn Royce:Saber Bio by Dualmask
(Update: I changed his blades. They were bugging me before.)

Felt like making some kind of bio for WEAPON Combat League's lead guy.

For the uninitiated, WEAPON Combat League my primary original universe concept. It revolves around a special combat suit, the titular WEAPON, which was once the domain of the military but whose secrets somehow mysteriously ended up on the streets, enabling anyone with the means and the skill to develop and customize their own suits, complete with signature abilities.

Some use them for underground competition, others for crime, and some for outright chaos. To rein in this problem, the military (the Defense Force) instead of fighting them, opts to gather the best of the custom WEAPON wielders and have them compete for fame and fortune. The goal: to inspire the creative designers of the next generation through friendly competition and rivalry, rather than destruction and bloodshed. Naturally, not everyone is keen on this idea, and that's where the main conflict sets in. There are also numerous subplots involving the many diverse characters in the story.


Took me way too long to render this. WCL, with a ginormous cast and an even larger narrative, is meant to be geared toward fast production...but I guess it's okay for a standalone illustration.

Character, design and concept fit beautifully, I can easily imagine the animation he's from. Even if Keith sounds like the least menacing bad guy name :)

Love it though hope you can bring this whole concept to fruition.

The thing about WEAPON Combat League is that there really aren't "bad" guys per se. Well, there is one, but even the story's "villain" (who is not Keith) believes what they're doing is right. In fact, from Keith's point of view (I'll post his bio eventually), he did Quinn a favor.

Glad you like it! I'm really proud of the story I wrote (and am still writing!) and I hope to be able to express it properly soon.

Your guy looks cool. Nice power suit. Of course, Saber would speed past him in a blur and cut him in half, and if that's not enough, Saber has teammates: [link] ;)

It's actually great to see the ol' WCL concept resurface here and there. Just getting a glimpse of some of your older pieces of Quinn shows how much you've refined the character over the years. I find that in itself pretty cool, not only from a technical standpoint, but it seems like you still have interest and motive in making the entire concept itself better.

If this manages to send of any positive vibe for you, I've actually thought about the cast of WCL a few times during my absence, so I'm hoping that this isn't just a one-time only thing. I'd love to see what you would do with the rest of the cast, if you're motivated in doing more with the WCL world anytime soon. In any case, this image is promising enough. :)

Thanks a lot for checking it out! It's great to know that WCL's had enough of an effect on you that it crept into your mind while you were away! I want to make high quality bios of all the WCL characters; it's just all about scheduling the right time to work on them. I do have plans to put WCL back on the forefront (note: development never really stopped, I just stopped posting excerpts from the story online) but it's all about balancing the schedule with my ongoing webcomic.

Thanks! :nod: I created a new folder on my HDD called "WCL Rebirth" and started developing new imagery. I'm not getting any younger, so I figured it's high time I treat this concept like an A-list idea rather than a back-burner one. ;)

Looks like a solid image to me- easily readable text, good layout, and the WCL logo suits the overall look well. In fact, I'm quite impressed with the well-connected design themes throughout the card. Quinn himself is nicely drawn, with a good sense of form and mass- without being overly massive. Nice work!

Glad you like it! I was worried a lot about the graphic design elements of this image. I still have some confidence issues when it comes to creating the overall aesthetic of the WCL concept, but it seems to have come together nicely enough here.

Well as stated in the bio, Quinn was a notorious criminal, but he also does a lot to bring problems on himself even after he joins the League. It's all in the story, one I hope to tell somehow, someday...
