mildred was my second attempt at using photoshop to create a character concept. it had to be done in a hurry [for a group project at uni], so i tried making a 2-d maquette of body parts assembled from supermodels until i got roughly the stance i wanted, then i airbrushed over the jumble to get the curves right. notice the perfect side - view of the pistol. that's intentional, of course - not becasue i can't replicate perspective worth a damn..........
but why is the mauser-esque pistol so big? i makebelieve i hear you ask, well it's becasue she's an ex circus contortionist, who tired of playing the legs in the 'saw the woman in half trick' [due to her diminutive stature] and turned to a life of crime. oh, and she's supposed to be set the 1930's. [hence wardrobe]
i'll be doing a couple of posts with other pieces i have, crits will be appreciated !!
although, after just spending 15 minutes writing this, i've just found that i'm not allowed to post an image. what gives?
