mine's a very late entry thanks to the fact that i only found out about this on saturday, so i started banging my head against the wall trying to come up with some sort of idea, and when it finally split open, this came out.
BIO CHEMICAL WEAPON
Yes i know, it's not the most original idea, considering the fact that every major holywood production has had them feature in some way, resident evil, planet terror, twenty-four,etc. not to mention the fact that at first glance it seems to be very off-topic but hear me out, i imagined the type of weapon found in movies like the rock,or the season 3 of twenty-four, where the mere fact that you're in the same room, breathing the same air it's in means you're about to experience a very painful death.
That weapon ladies and gentlemen, is a young lady named Tiku, and she just breached containment.
I haven't got any WIP pics yet, hope to have something up tomorrow.
okay, here we go, the scene is in a top secret laboratory, so top secret that even the people who work there don't know it exists, lol, i just souldn't resist. anyway, the scientists there have been culturing Tiku for over a decade, cloning her & infusing her body with chemical substances (think Alien ressurection), then cloning her again just as the poison gets so potent as to kill her. Therefore every generation of clone has a higher level of resistance against the poison & ofcourse happens to be a more lethal killer.
i tried to do a thumb sketch of what i had in mind & failed miserably. so i decided to use my less than stellar 3d skill to try & build a 3d model of the lab & surprisingly came up with something promising.
now i can get started on the line work.
Started the lineart
C&C are very welcome.
Stupid question..... If she's only just out of the tank..... why is she wearing a buttoned up shirt? other than just not to be naked? also, I know it's only in sketches and you are probably putting it in later, but how does the poison kill the other people? is it touch, or airborne? 'cos I think some little vapor trails from her around the dead people would be cool ^_^
Kitten Poker, thanks for coming through, got my first reply
i thought about making her totally nude but with all those other versions of her in the tanks nude, figured that's plenty of nudity in the pic, so i'm gonna have one of the dead people on the floor without a shirt (the person she got it from). The poison's airborne, i will add the vapour trails on her & on the victims, thanks for that advice & for coming through.
Update, a bit tiny bit more detailing, work is making progress very slow
you are making good progress ^_^
I am finding the line around the walls is a little distracting, try only having it in the pod room?
Also the shiny bits look a little unparallel nearer the top of the windows, giving a slightly distorted effect, but that's probably just me :op
The tops of the pods are ace ^_^

Coming along very nice
Just becareful with making it too perfect with the lines..you plan to use brush strokes in more of the areas? Kinda like make the walls like a little dirty or have some textures?
I have to agree that the pods are looking wonderful! There looks to be sooo much for you to have to do ...I hope you will get to finsh in time.
kittenpocker i just realised what you ment by the line around the walls and i'll post a pic without it to see what it looks like. i've tried my best to get rid of that wavy distortion around the edges of the glass ( i think having very straight lines does this, or does it?) hope it looks better now. i was hoping the work on the pods would be recognised, thank you very much
I wanted the room to look very clean but i've realised that it look very cartoony, kinda reminding me of dexter's lab, i love the cartoon but that's not a good thing, so i'm gonna try out some dirty brushes but i must confess i don't have much luck with or experience with custom brushes (but i never give up) thank you for stopping by
finally did the doors & added some details & lighting in the pod room. Also did some floor tiles (even more straight lines)
drew the first dead person, lost his shirt & is keeping the door to the pod room conveniently open so we can see inside
an upload without the line dividing the first room, what do you think, with or without it.
i have to finish this weekend. otherwise i'll get into an even worse panic than i'm already in.
