Deus Ex: Protagonists by TronixGFX Deus Ex: Protagonists by TronixGFX
A tribute to my favourite game of all time, Deus Ex and also hyping for the newest Deus Ex: Human Revolution game that is coming out this August....I am highly excitable.

Anyway, for this picture I painted...these are the three characters from the deus ex games. Alex Denton(right) is from DE: Invisible War. Now I know many fans who seem to dislike invisible war, I know it wasn't as good as the very first one obviously but I really liked the game and overall I thought it was a success.

And JC Denton(middle) is from the very first and the best game of the Deus Ex universe, the one that started it all. JC is a serious badass.

And finally, Adam Jensen is the new character for the new game. And to be honest, whoever was responsible for designing this are my hero...he is wicked cool looking!

So ya, I hope you all dig this painting. I made it in photoshop and took me approximately 27 hours....ya in my opinion it shouldn't took that long to make but I'll definitely try to work faster next time, learn a lot from making this.

In chronological order too :D

While Human Revolution was actually my first, and I love it especially since I got Pacifist and Foxiest, I'm kinda enjoying the original even moreso for some bizarre reason. Plus joining the stuff I know from HR really makes treating Deus Ex 1 as a sequel really fun

Deus Ex is the greatest game ever made. Great RPG mechanics, amazing cyberpunk setting, and the fact that no two playthroughs are alike. Playing it for the first time is such a mindblowing experience. Really love how symmetrical Denton looks in your drawing.

Great work! Love all three games, though at first I was confused about Alex since I played as a female Alex in my game . . . :-D

Have you bought the game yet? I had it since it came out on Steam but I recently actually finished it lol.

D'aww, papa Jensen :D :XD: j/k.
TronixGFX Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Of course I bought it...right on launch date =D. I was anticipating this game since it was first announced. Was worth the wait too:3
SylphViper Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice. :3 I'm still trying to beat Deus Ex 1, lol...I have Human Revolution, would feel stupid to play that first, lol.
BloodWolfGurl Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Actually, since Deus Ex Human Revolution is a prequel to the first game, it wouldn't be a problem playing it first! The only reason I'd recommend you play the first game first is only because of the vast differences in game graphics and mechanics... DE:HR is better with those things because of the modern advances and such.
SylphViper Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, I know...It's just that I have a personal thing against playing the second or third games, etc. before playing the originals. ;D
All I know is that there were certain elements in the original DE that were missing in DE:HR.
BloodWolfGurl Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Like what?
SylphViper Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, for instance, the fact that Deus Ex's bosses were actually CHARACTERS that you recognize, lol. Uh...lets see...
The abililty to make a class(well not really a class, but more like specialization). There were actually MELEE WEAPONS, lol.
Basically, alot of things...and usually the most important things that I enjoyed from Deus Ex 1.
BloodWolfGurl Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Those points are very true. Each DX game has it's pros and cons though... you make me want to install DX1 though! :D
SylphViper Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, lol...each game has it's pros and cons. :P But honestly, I still like them both, lol. (I have yet to play DE 2)
Have you ever seen this?

BloodWolfGurl Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah! It's awesome! They would play that a lot when they were advertising DX HE!

Nice mate.
Frankiethe16 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2011
Very nice, I actually was introduced to the Deus Ex series by Invisible War and while it isn't as good as the first I've always felt that a lot of people ragged on it more then it deserved.
Gonen32 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2011
Awesome work ! I don't know how, but you managed to make even poor Alex look badass :lol:

I just finished the new game. I am a BIG fan of this series, and this is just fantastic. Really nice work.

FUN FACT:The JC in JC Dentons name i supposed to be a refrence to Jesus Christ since they wanted to make JC Denton a decendent of Jesus Christ :3
hotrod772 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2011
I knew that =P
xEternityTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011
ok how about this,Alex Denton is a clone of JC Denton! :D or this JC Dentons DNA is actually Adam Jensens DNA so in a way, JC Denton is a clone of Adam Jensen
hotrod772 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
I knew that too. lol
xEternityTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
are you the helios ai?! :O...
Adam Jensen:-plays deus ex invisible war-...i never asked for this...
JC Denton:-plays Deus Ex Invisible war- a bomb!
lol i never played DX:IW but i keep hearing its crappy :( im not saying it it becuase i havent played it,but i want to
hotrod772 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Trust me, you don't want to. Crappy doesn't even begin to describe it. It was a half-assed sequel that only used the name Deus Ex to get sales.

Deus Ex, God from "God from" what? Deus Ex Machina "God from the Machines"

Adam, the First. J.C, the Son. Alex, the Messiah.

Through Adam's genes the evolution of man was made possible. Through the ambitions of J.C a perfect world can be realized. Through the actions of Alex J.C was free to continue his ambition.
wtfuguys Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2011
"That makes me one ugly son of a bitch. How'd my face get all marked up with bioelectrics?" (Actual in-game line when Denton confronts Simons at Area 51, assuming you don't kill him in the sea base)

Aside from that one detail, cool pic. I know it's personal interpertation and all, but that's one of his best comebacks in the game.
DooMGuy117 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
JC Denton in this pic looks more like a human and less of a Minecraft Character...and i love it :D

and yes: Deus Ex 1 is the best of the series thus far...but Human Revolution looks SO badass, MUCH better than Invisible War was
Worgen Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
I love your portrayal of JC here. Reminds me a lot of how nano tech is depicted in the Too Human universe. That being said this is one of the finest examples of Deus Ex fan art here on DA; great job!
lambieeboo Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2011
Awesome work as always hun :3
MrTKOer Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2011
After looking at this awsome picture, nice job by the way, i just found out that all of them are based around a certain color. Gold-ish, Blue, and Purple. But i have to admit that Invisible War kinda sucked.
Ironsightt Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I LOVE THIS. This is pretty epic. All of them are epic. Especially JC. I know one thing I'm getting Human revolution on day one
