Zero: Pixy vs. Cipher by BoggeyDan Zero: Pixy vs. Cipher by BoggeyDan
My take on Cipher (Galm 1) vs. Larry "Pixy" Foulke (Galm 2) in their climactic final battle.
This piece is inspired by ~Skunk-Works' artworks.

Cipher uses a black ADFX-01 here since it's very much fitting in so many ways:

- Pixy mentions him and Cipher being the "opposite sides of the same coin"; black & white are two universal opposites
- the music during the battle, "Zero", has samples of Razgriz (black is the trademark color of Razgriz, by the way) in it
- the battle is pretty much a foreshadowing of future events (as seen in Ace Combat 5)

I did the ADFX-01/ADFX-02 lineart first on paper, then scanned it in and traced the lines on Photoshop. The rest of the art (smoke, snow, background, etc.) was drawn on Photoshop.

Are you saying you haven't played this particular mission? Because if that's the case, you should go ahead and do so... it's epic. :XD:

Anyways, thanks. :D

I've noticed in one of the missions, it was the same map as the one from Ace Combat 5 in the mission Solitaire and the one following it.

That would be the Mt. Schirm area in Belka - [link]

Probably the most major difference is that the XB-0's giant hangar is no longer present during the 2010 Circum-Pacific War (AC5) - it was either destroyed by Cipher and PJ (at the player's discretion), or it may have been dismantled.

Also, during that mission's take-off sequence, you finally get to take off (and resupply in, if one so wishes) from Heierlark Base for the first time (the Heierlark map is only seen in AC5 in an in-game graphics cutscene of the Wardog planes landing).

Also, I've wanted to use the worst plane in the game against Pixy and say, "Now, we're evenly matched.

By the way, this is a fantastic picture. I loved the two Morgans and I agree with you. Like opposite sides od the coin, these two are perfect for an epic battle. Faved!

Hmmm, yeah, the Falken really is stronger than Morgan, because of it's coffin cockpit, but maybe Fenrir has a chance. It has the 360 degree cockpit too.

I've flown the Morgan, FALKEN, and Wyvern, and I must say that the Morgan and FALKEN are evenly matched, with the Wyvern trailing rather closely behind.

I just meant that personally, I could take on any plane with the Wyvern.
Other than maybe the Mig 1.44.

I HATED this mission. Epic music and all, but pick the wrong plane in Mission 16 and you're pretty much fucked.
C'mon, does an F-35 really stand a chance?

:iconboggeydan:
BoggeyDan Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Exactly why picking the overall best plane available is a must for that last B7R mission. Good thing I learned from that experience of mine in AC5, in which I picked the wrong plane (a Legacy Hornet) for that mission in which you fight Ofnir in the Yuke ravine.

So what's the best plane for fighting Pixy?
Reply
:iconboggeydan:
BoggeyDan Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Obviously something with very high performance (reflected by the high price tag), such as the F-15S/MTD, Su-37, YF-23, F-22A, and so on.

I recommend selling off your weaker planes/weapons and buy the most expensive plane you have unlocked so far.

That's what I did.
Too late to get a new one, so I just started a new game.
