First off, Hi, CA! It's been a while since I've posted. This is a character from a while back for a comic I hope to do in the future.
Another redo. This is a slightly disconcerting trend, I guess, because whenever I improve I find myself wanting to fix my old mistakes. I suppose this is more of a design refinement than a complete makeover, though, so perhaps it's not that I do it too much, but that I don't do it enough. What do you guys think?
I've done a bit of research and tried to the character more accurate and fleshed out, as per Giacomo's advice. Unlike in the previous rendition, the sights on the gun are now proper, the holster is no longer a floppy thing, and spare magazines are placed sensibly on the belt instead of in a weird satchel thing in the back. The two other belt pouches contain a flashlight and a multitool, and I'm debating over whether or not a combat knife (or any other gear) should be on there somewhere. The I tried to make the proportions more realistic as well.
The outfit was intended to be a blend of businessperson, soldier, and policewoman. The stripes and blue parts from the previous concept will be in place in the final render.
All critique is appreciated.
