The Aces of Ace Combat Sketch by Skunk-Works The Aces of Ace Combat Sketch by Skunk-Works
This is a quick sketch I did over the weekend. I plan to draw all of them individually on seperate paper later.

I haven't drawn guys all that much so I used a lot of references. Man it's kinda embarassing to not know how to draw my own gender.

Faces and Hair styles--How to Draw Manga: Male Characters
Poses--GQ Magazines

For those of you who you don't know these guys, they are the aces from Ace Combat 4, 5, and Zero. They never showed what they looked like in the games except for the guy from Ace Combat 5. They still censored his face though. So, I just designed them depending on what people in the game say about them.

Let's introduce them shall we:

LEFT
Codename: Cipher-Galm 1, nicknamed "The Demon Lord"
Plane: F-15C
Ace Style: Depends on Player---Most likely mercenary
Pose: Taken from a picture of Brad Pitt on the cover of a GQ magazine.
Service: The Belkan War (1995)
He's a mercenary pilot who works for the nation of Ustio and the leader of the 6th Air Division 66th Air Force Unit during the Belkan War of 1995. I make him have the longest hair because since he's a mercenary, nobody would care about his hair cut. He also looks tough and the most muscular of the three because he's a mercenary after all. He isn't wearing an officer uniform because of that reason as well. Rough tough and rugged, he has a serious look in his eyes because of what happened to him in the war. One of his most trusted wingman/best friend tries to kill him and his second wingman who was due to get married after his last mission was murdered in cold blood by his first wingman. This guy has been through a lot in a war that was completely grey.

MIDDLE
Codename: Mobius 1, nicknamed "The Ribbon"
Plane: F-22A
Ace Style: Soldier
Pose: Taken from some dude in a suit inside a GQ magazine
Service: The Continental War/Operation Katina (2004-2005)
He's an ISAF pilot but not leader of the 112th Tactical Fighter Squadron. The 112th Tactical Fighter Squadron was made up of the best pilots from different fighter squadrons during the Continental War. Unfortunately, he was the only one who joined as a rookie. Originally a pilot from the ISAF navy but was transferred to the Air Force. That's why I made him wear a naval officer uniform. I'm making him blonde because I feel like it. He has a suave face because I felt like making it so. Nothing further is told about this guy except he has the ability to turn the tide of an entire war by himself without the help of a close wingman. A few months after the war, seeing that he alone can rival an entire ISAF squadron, was recalled to active duty to destroy the remnants of the Erusian Air Force who rebelled and wouldn't surrender. Unfortunately, with his skills, he can never bring peace to his home continent of Usea. Civil war and border disputes ravaged the continent for several years after the Continental War.

RIGHT
Codename: Blaze-Wardog/Razgriz 1, nicknamed "The Ghost of Razgriz"
Plane: F-14A/D
Ace Style: Soldier
Pose: Taken from some dude in a GQ magazine
Service: The Circum Pacific War (2010)
The squadron leader of the 108th Tactical Squadron or "Wardog Squadron" in the Osean Air Force. He commands three planes in his squadron. The squadron members are him, Kei Nagase, Hans Grimm, Alvin H. Davenport, and Marcus Snow, who replaces Davinport after he dies. I didn't need to infer to what he looks like from what people say about him because they actually show him in the game. Except for his face which was blocked by some dude's elbow. That I had to figure out what to make him look like. The way his squadron talks to him shows that he's a young and a very sociable person to be around. Therefore I made him have a happy go lucky kid type look. His haircut was shown in the game so I'm sticking with it. At first, him and his squadron was called the Demons of Razgriz by the enemy after a character from a made up fairy tale in the game. Later, after reportedly being KIA becuase of being called a traitor, he repaints his plane black and his squadron was renamed "The Ghosts of Razgriz" by the President of Osea. Him and his squadron saved the continent from the war and brought peace to the land. Even though he pilots an F-14, he still wears an Air Force officer uniform. He is still in the air force but after being shot down while running away to escape charges of treason, he was rescued by a crew from an air craft carrier. He was later forced to use carrier based jets.

From evidence in Ace Combat Zero and Ace Combat 4 (the two are linked), Cipher might be Mobius 1.

Yes, Zero and Five share the Belkan war, but the Ace Combat games are all in the same universe. In Ace Combat Zero, the parts w/ Pixy are being told during/right after the war in Ace Combat 4 (right after scenario would be the arcade mode of AC5), so it's highly plausible that Cipher joined ISAF and became known as Mobius 1.

I think Cypher and Mobius 1 could be the same person...I mean, Cypher completely disappears after the Belkan war, and virtually nothing is known about either him or Mobius 1, so it's at least possible...

Anyhoo, nice job dude! :clap: :+fav:

Also, Mobius 1 does not fly with a wingman-- possibly because the two that he had as Cipher either betrayed/defected, or got lasered in the face.

Good point...although I personally choose to believe that PJ survived, whatever the canon says really happened. I mean, the plane fragment they show at the end could just as easily have been from Pixy's plane as PJ's. Just my opinion! :D

Foxby Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
Well considering they say that the laser tore through the cockpit and killed him instantly (never mind that it looks like it hit his wing)... besides, he was waving around the Family Photo! Of course he was about to die.

I dont think Mobius 1's nickname was "The Ribbon". You might be thinkin of the Mobius squadron's insignia cuz its a ribbon. Correct me if im wrong i wanna know with sum proof. I like to find out things i dont know :)

No, your getting messed up. The Mobius Squadron was a temporary squadron used in the Battle of Megalith. The other pilots were aces from other parts of the war and werent even in the "squadron" until ISAF gathered them up and placed them under Mobius 1's command during the assault on Megalith. the Ribbon is Mobius 1's original nickname and insignia, so naturally the ribbon is how the Mobius squadron was identified, although the real Mobius 1 is the only survivor of the battle.

just FYI, Mobius 1 was also nicnamed "Grim Reaper", cause I remember when I was playingthat desert mission (the one right before you take over the Erusian capital and then Megalith) that the Erusian soldiers called you the grim reaper over the radio. But personally I think "The Ribbon" is a cooler nicname, Grim Reaper has been over used lol. Awsome pic, keep up the great work =P

Plus, Mobius 1 isn't a joke. He's probably the best out of all of them.
