#8 Vincent Arroyo

| November 8, 2010 | 2 Comments

From the pages of the legendary 1930s pulp magazine TALES OF HIGH ADVENTURE  comes Vincent Arroyo–swordsman, rouge, adventurer, lover.

He travels through the various nations of the continent of Aldrezan seeking adventure, whether it’s helping a beautiful woman defend her home (and also winning her heart), joining a band of lawmen as they search for dangerous gangs in the Palliarno wastelands, or gaining the favor and respect of Princess Deandra of the kingdom of Tallis.  Vincent is a man of action, but intelligent, observant, despite his somewhat flippant attitude.  He is a master swordsman, and is known to many…but his own past is still a mystery, even to him.

You see, Vincent cannot remember anything before his 13th year.  In fact, he strongly believes that “Vincent Arroyo” is not even his real name, but the name he was given by the two kindly people who found him and raised him.  There is only one clue: the ornate ring that was with him when he was found.  If the ring’s secret is unraveled, it just might answer the one question Vincent has always asked of himself–“who am I, really?”

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.

    I really like this character. You put a lot of depth into him, but more importantly he has a great story too. Love it. good job.

  2. Thanks! He’s pretty much based on–or better yet, a throwback–to the heroes from the pulp magazines or old comic strips (such as, say, Zorro, the Phantom, and Conan).
