How long Vigil has been around?

A long time! The stuff on DA is really just a sideline to the main comic which was posted on a site called Cranky Octopus -www.crankyoctopus.com/  the site shut down a while back but I might go back to the Vigil storyine one day!

I like it, but there's not enough complexity in her costume...

Huh. So there's actually some complexity to her simplicity. Good to know.

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner May 11, 2014
LOL! There's no complexity to her costume at all! Thanks for the kind words. The simplicity of the suit is deliberate actually - the idea is that it's a creation of her telepathic powers - like a solidified thought. I considered adding some detail at one point but I think the simplicity makes it more distinctive in the end. (Plus I'm very lazy and it's easy to draw!)

Ah, yet another time-travelling telepath. Not too popular-a-theme yet, but it's getting there.

Ok, I think misinterpreted my comment. Time-travelling telepaths is actually something I'm quite a fan of, namely because of Cable of X-Men fame and Silver the Hedgehog of Sonic fame.

she sounds interesting although I am at a bit of a loss why you wouldn't be into have a shocking character development like what I suggested.

It's a very good idea, but I already have Vigil's story worked out and your idea doesn't fit in I'm afraid.

I have a vague idea for an image of her in the middle and the Hegemony and Dryads on either side trying to grab her. Might be kinda generic, but it was just a first impression.
Reply
:iconkostmeyer:
Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
Sounds good to me - I like the idea of the two factions fighting over her. What are the dryads exactly? I get that they're trying to restore the planet but what is their society like? I assume the Hegemony are a militaristic army, but I'm not sure about the dryads - do they have a 'country, with cities and so on?
Reply
:iconfarawayforest:
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
The dryads are genetically engineered human too, kinda like nymphs meet amazons?
They may actually be from the same stock as the Hegemony. But they either came to love the planet more as it was or were infected by the indigenous life forms. They don't really have a country, they live in the huge Nether Haven forest that has become totally overgrown since the fall of human society.
One of my favorites is Kali, she often has to defend her people from the more aggressive indigenous beasts.
[link]
They live in small bands in the forest, but some say the roots of the trees almost work like a giant brain, they dryads can sense this through their connection with the environment so even though they live in small mostly isolated groups that have a greater awareness of each other and what's going on in the forest.

I just love old school fantasy creatures, elves, fairies, satyrs. My excuse for having these creatures in a Sci-fi setting is that they were originally engineered to be explorers or botanists. Rather that send in big expeditions with vehicles and all that, the ancient ones decided to just create people who were content and self sufficient in the wilderness.

If it's a DU SHIELD, shouldn't it's members be humans rather than superhumans? What I'm getting at is - what's the difference between this and the existing Thunder Force?

My organization respects the individuality of solo-heroes, and leaves them alone unless it's important. Baisically, it has a roster of heroes and soldiers they can deploy in the event of disaster. It also gives payment to heroes who need it. It's like Havoc Unit, but more open to people wanting to join. I understand that Vigil has better things to do, though.She also dosen't seem to hang around others too much as well. I completley understand.

So not really like SHIELD at all then? This is probably a better idea - doing something unique. I shall be interested to see how this develops :)

The pose is just majestic. This is awesome. I always like the slight blue-ish tint on her suit, it really gives it a latex-ish feel. I'm gonna go check back at the comic, it's been a while since I had the slightest chance to go on Cranky Octopus! Last I checked in, Vigil was in quite a pickle!

This is the first time in a long time where I haven't seen her in some form of torment or pain(as drawn by you, that is)! You certainly know how to put her in harm's way, but I suppose that just shows how strong of a character she is by fighting her way through such instances! Great work!:D

Well, I suppose she hasn't been in any sort of real pain in the pages of Catacombs of Kane, but she's definitely been in some perilous situations! Not to mention that ever since she mind wiped the heroes in SW, she's been in all sorts of trouble, peril, or tremendous amounts of pain! Poor thing!:(

Heh, nice to see Vigil enter the DA-Verse. But as you say, since she does cross time, space and dimensions on a regular basis it fits that she'd be able to pop up there.

Mind if I submit Nest to the DA Verse? I do own at least part of her. XD
