Lucy Corazon's "Starter Unit!" Strong recovery powers that can heal herself and those around her. She also uses a bow & arrow as her main weapon for long distance attacks.

Mountain Zone 20th Anniversary 27 - Sketch Banner

Wow! It's been twenty years since I first created this little guy after watching the (dreadful) season of "Masked Rider!" My first original character (as about as original in 1996) looked nothing like the "Virtual Paradise" version today, but the core belief that I could create a character that looked like me. A strong, leading Black Canadian who fought for the ones who couldn't fight back is a rarity within my people. My continuous goal is to finally create a series of adventures featuring Mountain Zone (whichever version) and friends to the large masses!

Thanks to all the likes, faves and retweets throughout the month thus far. It's almost over but I'm not stopping yet.

Nope, not yet! :)

Mountain Zone 20th Anniversary 17 - Christian Resso!

Young Johnathan & Martha Resso were the biggest stars in Hollywood during their heyday. Winning many awards and breaking box office records the two realized that they have done everything they could in Tinseltown and wanted to tackle the next staring role in their lives. Raising a family.

Much like his parents, Christian loved acting just as much as his parents and decided to make a name for himself in the acting world, but would get a cruel realization very soon.

Extremely talented at a young age Christian studied at the Stagecoach Theater Arts School at six years old, excelling at dance, singing & of course acting, but when your last name is Resso your success only comes with jealousy and contempt. After graduating (with honors) Christian struggled to find big movie roles, many thinking he's just living off his mega star parents name, clinging to their fame. No matter how had he tried, it seemed that young Christian will never break out as the star he knows he can be.

Mountain Zone 20th Anniversary 12 - Sauga City Power Plant

Rough illustration of where Gateman took his last battle five years prior. The color strands represent the Wi-Fi signal. The strands have two colors for speed (light) & strength (dark). The richer the color the faster & stronger the Wi-Fi signal!

The standing structures that look like mushrooms are the modems that capture the Wi-Fi signals. Since this is the city's power plant, I though they should look like some form of plant! ^^;

Mountain Zone 20th Anniversary 11 - Professor Henry Tachikawa

Once a colleague of Dr. Julian Anthony, Henry is verse in artificial intelligence in holographic programing creating the different personalities within Julian's Starter program. The two were a perfect team, yet Tachikawa believed that if they sell their works through military benefactors, they would be able to be wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. Julian wasn't interested, wanting to use the "Starters" for culture development using interactive means, but create weapons that will in turn destroy humanity.

Henry decided to go behind Julian's wishes and try to sell their works to the highest bidder, but when he was caught selling to cyber terrorists, Julian turned him in, ending their long standing partnership.

Julian later modified Henry's AI interface to create the first version of the Starter program to much success, while Henry sought revenge over his former friend & colleague. Creating the most dangerous weapon of all.

To which Jason must forgive in order to save the future!

This month (August 26) marks the Twentieth anniversary of my first original character, Mountain Zone!

Since the current incarnation of my character that I am working one is Mountain Zone: Virtual Paradise, I figured that I spend the next month posting the different characters and the world they live in, both 'Sagua City' and it's digital world, "Virtutopia!"

So with that said, here is Twenty years for the one that started my love for drawing!
