Near the Border by pvtskwerl Near the Border by pvtskwerl
Based on Ace Combat Zero's ending.
Awesome conclusion and amazing music, there is absolutely no reason why the game did not get any tribute for that portion alone.

Special thanks to Smurfbizkit, Jerry Cai, Marc, and Relicnews IRC for picking the project apart and give me the much needed critiques.

And lastly:
"Yo buddy, still alive?"

Wow, this is beautiful!
I love the atmosphere and camera angle and composition and everything. If only I could make art that's even 1/10th as beautiful as this... haha... Great work!

Wow this is awesome. Just awesome. Seems like something from Ace Combat 6's emotional/"heavy" parts, if you know what I mean. I like the statue-it reminds me of the angel statue in Behind Enemy Lines, where he's parachuting down after getting shot down, and first sees the good side, then gets blown around and sees the destroyed part of the angel.

Very impressive pic,the only negative thing that I could say about it you made him too old. In the picture he looks mid maybe late 30's, but in the game he look's like he is in his mid 20's. Other than that Great picture

Pixy is the best wingman in the entire series, both in combat and in terms of personality. Too bad it all turned out like this. :(

Sorry, fan girl mode there.

This pic is AWESOME! best ever. Ace combat zero is the best game ever. I love the soundtrack too, I have 'zero' ( the last song), and I played the game so many times I know it by heart.

I still beilive that PJ is not dead, just missing.

I loves him.

you know, I've been considering, you know how Pixy fought for ISAF, a good chance he's mobius one. Thats always crossed my mind, though highly unlikely, that would explain how mobius 1 is so powerful.

Great work anyhow love to see more! ps. did you do one similar tribute for ac5 or ac4?

:iconpvtskwerl:
pvtskwerl Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I have an AC4 tribute and another ACZ tribute that's being worked on.

As for Pixy being Mobius 1, I'd vote against that fact due to Mobius One is a mute.

:iconbalasar:
Balasar Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009
that is a good point, but you do know that every character that you play is a mute, the only confirmed face is that of blaze. Now, if you noticed, there was a mini birthday reference, on ac4s first and last mission, and on the mission The Stage of Apocalypse, there was another one.

now, I think it would be neat if Pixy did meet or was mobius one, imagine the conversation. I say, the most mute pilot must by Cipher.

Honestly, I still think the painting is still lacking in term of lighting (bring focus on character) and composition etc.

This is actually my first piece of work after 3 years of break from painting, I am actually thinking about revisiting this piece after warming myself up with a few projects and see if I can gain any new insight about how to improve this painting.

P.S.
I'm gonna miss Cipher. He was a mute and cool pilot.
