Sly Cooper: Thief of Virtue by ConnorDavidson Sly Cooper: Thief of Virtue by ConnorDavidson
This is my fun concept/fan art for the next game in the awesome Sly Cooper series. I claim no credit or ownership of the Sly Cooper character and logo. Those belong to the Sanzaru/Sucker Punch companies.

Here we have the dashing master thief and his six new foes. These fiendish devils broke into the Cooper Vault - even past the new security built by Bentley from the third game. Now, it's time for Sly to get his family's loot back. And get even.

Kevin Turbo the Lion - head of a fight club/street gang in Miami. He is the fence of the gang, selling the loot off in portions to the best bidders.
Master Kre the Crane - ninja master with a fleet of smuggling vessels docked in northern Japan. He transports the gang's goods across the world.
Cesar DeRoque the Penguin - oil tycoon with a massive rig in the central Pacific. His international bases provide safe havens for his criminal cohorts.
Lady Venom the Cobra - celebrity figurehead secretly industrializing the Amazon. She ties up police and media attention with legal and political nonsense.
Colonel Zahn the Snow Leopard - arms dealer financing warlords in Africa. His weaponry allows all his associates to be the top dogs in any dispute.
Drake Lupus the Wolf - criminal mastermind based in the Swiss Alps. His brilliance is surpassed only by his cruel desire to control the world through crime.

Well it's been a long time coming.
But I'm going to begin reading your work all the way through.
Already from day one I can tell how your art style is increasing in quality. But you still manage to capture my interest with a unique looking group of baddies to face off against Sly and co.
Lady Venom in particular with her ornate frill.
I may not comment on every page or fave it; but know that I am reading your work and see how the story progresses.

This is so exciting! Clawhauser icon 

Oh, those old pages...oh those old pages... I hope you can get through them. Their shorter than the future ones, so...

I'll definitely be looking forward to your thoughts as you read through the story. I hope you enjoy it!

Glad you're excited to have me read it. ;D
I'm working on my own eventual comic. I'd like to see how you did yours. I could learn a thing or two from it. ;D
Oh I'll be sure to get through them. ;D I still find them enjoyable as you keep the essence of Sly in tact quite well.

Most of my thoughts might be short comments. They usually reflect my overall thought on that particular page. And faveing a page is more or less me bookmarking where I last left off.
But rest assured,what I read so far i like. You've definitely got my attention and i shall continue reading it. ^^

Chronologically speaking, when would the comic take place? :p

A year or two after Sly 4 - in which I am completely skipping over how Sly got back from his time displacement.

I understand man.

I myself am actually in the progress of making a Sly Cooper Fanfic series, though I don't plan on releasing it till the Sly series comes to a natural conclusion, as I want to make sure all the events that occurs in my fanfic do not conflict with the actual timeline in the Sly Cooper games. I haven't quite decided though if I want to write it out or make it into a comic...

Comics are prettier, but they're a lot more work...

Well, you shouldn't hold out on yourself. Tell the story you want to tell, and what people might enjoy. Whether or not future "official" stuff conflicts with it doesn't really matter all that much. (If you've written it before, that is. If you write after and conflict...well...)

I thought about what you said these past few months, and I just want to say that you do make a good point there. Of course, being that Sony may not make another game for Sly after that post Sanzaru announced, that kinda makes things a bit difficult for me when it comes to staying canon in chronological terms. :p

Honestly, sooner or later I will start to get tired of waiting for Sony to get off their ass and bring the series to a natural conclusion, so I am going to do this. Ill wait for the Sly movie to come out and keep an ear out for another Sly installment. If they haven't announced anything a few months after the movie, I am going to continue my possible fan-comic/novel the way I would have done it (while of course sticking to canon and not misrepresenting ANY of the characters to the best of my ability). Meanwhile, ill be writing up the synopsis, script, and characters for the first part of the possible fan-comic/novel, since that one in particular takes place during the two-year interval between "the Thevious Racconus" and "band of thieves".

It may even be a few years before it comes out if I choose to do it as a comic, considering that my drawing is still in the process of improving. But yeah, I don't plan on holding out on myself if Sony continues to pull this. Thanks for the advice, Connor. :)

Hmph. Arpeggio was only in the story for a few minutes! Cesar is way more important than that little birdie.

:D Yeah, when you said it that way, arpeggio appeared only on few spots. In India, and at the flying thingy where he was planned to build clockwerk. Oh and he talked to jean bison in canada :D Cesar is a BOSS! He is not gonna be in a big part!

Well now, that's a tough but great question. I'm hesitant to choose because A) I have decent knowledge and insight to the vast array of great actors in the world, but not as much as I should, and B) such a declaration could ruin some people's imaginations...which may or may not be better than my own.

 

While I work up a list, why don't some other people give me ideas? I'll share mine if you share yours...heh. ;)

Had that list ready didncha? I like your ideas (though I did have to look one or two up to refresh my memory.)

 

Actually, I was considering Clancy Brown as Zahn, though I was also looking for a slight German accent. And Kevin Michael Richardson for Turbo too. Heh. Maybe there's something there... Here's a few of the ideas I had in mind...

 

Kevin Turbo: Kevin Michael Richardson, Fred Tatasciore; Brutish and speaks in Spanglish/Ghetto lingo

 

Master Kre: I have no idea...there are tons that would fit, yet I can't figure any names; Cold and arrogant, doesn't necessarily have to be Asian.

 

Cesar DeRoque: Tom Kenny, Seth Macfarlane, any comedic guy with a distinct/slightly annoying/ high voice; Pompous, nasal, takes himself seriously even as others can't. Probably a poor idea...I like yours better.

 

Lady Venom: Tasia Valenza, Kelly Hu, there are a few more; A soft and seductive voice, but often grows cold and cruel.

 

Colonel Zahn: Clancy Brown, Liev Schreiber, Corey Burton; Deep and signature voice, slightly accented and very menacing.

 

Drake Lupus: Will Arnett, Benedict Cumberpatch ('cause I can!), Gary Oldman...I'm using bigger names here, because Drake needs a strong voice, sinister and calculating, yet, must still illicit strong sympathy and emotion. Actually, Adam Baldwin works too.

 

My pathetic list. Don't take any real stock into it. Leave the casting to the casting directors. That's what they're there for.

the reason I pick Tara Strong was for her work as Penelope Spectra on Danny Phantom.

Don't misunderstand me - I think Tara is an awesome actress, and I love her whether she's playing a young boy or an actual woman. (She plays an awesome Risha in SW:TOR, but then, lots of people are awesome in that). She may very well be the right person for the voice - in fact, I think I'll hire you on as one of my casting directors...

Yep. I love the trope, though I don't *usually* adhere strictly to the setup. Still, it's one of my favorite aspects in a story - multiple villains, each taking their turn and each having a unique time to shine.

I definitely can see these characters in a Sly Cooper game! I really like the mini-bios and character designs. Keep up the good work! :iconranranruuplz:

Thank you! A bit more extensive bios are given with each piece I did for the villains in particular. If you haven't, I'd love y'all to check them out. I'll probably get them into the group gallery soon.
