The history seems interesting, but i'm not quite sure about what evil army is that. Btw, nice job, nice colors, movement and effects.

Quando ví em biologia o que era câncer, pensei justamente nesse tipo de mutação (Eu lí que é um parasita, ams por que não algo do tipo Prototype? Se há multiplicação acelerada e desordenada, qual seria a diferença se a mesma fosse acelerada e coordenada?)
Isso em 3D ficaria incrível, adorei a imersão provocada, mas também fiquei um pouco confuso quanto ao ângulo (O problema é comigo xD , nada com a obra)

Parabéns

He sounds like a good-guy version of Alex Mercer. But that doesn't matter. I like the concept and I love the artwork. Congrats on the DD.

Wait. . . so. . . why is a mysterious parasite a good thing?? I mean, granted, its not as bad as cancer but its better ain't the same thing as good.

Also, where did he get the powers?

Well, a parasite isn't always a bad thing. Sure, they live off of your own energy, but they can also at times help you. From what I can see in this picture, he seems to be able to transform it into a blade of some sort.

No, parasites never help you. They life off your energy/nutrients/warmth/fluids/whatever and give nothing back. That's the very definition of a parasite.

I can just as easily argue that their relationship is a mutually symbiotic one, but the parasite would still be a parasite since it is leeching.

Leeching alone does not a parasite make. A parasitic relationship is only beneficial to the parasite, not to the host.

But parasites also tend to have the instinct that it is in their best interests to keep the host alive. If the host were to die, the parasite would too. Therefore, it would be at least slightly beneficial, since the parasite would try to keep them alive.

Sounds pretty good, actually, and your cover looks nice, though this blade arm makes me think a little too much of Prototype...

distritopapillon Featured By Owner May 13, 2011
You're right buddy. I thought the same, but I had to keep the design established by the editor for the character. But the relation with prototype it's inevitable =)

Thanks

Bit of a shame, really. With such a starting point, there are so many different possibilities. But I suppose the blade is the best way of giving the book some visibility: us geeks will remember the game, and that visual superposed with a radiography makes for a most striking cover.

It's actually one of the best covers I've seen in a long time, in my opinion.
