    CHOW #319 :: The Starbound Outlaw

    Character of the Week #319
    The Starbound Outlaw
    Deadline - Sunday, March 3 10PM GMT

    In the distant future, mankind has technologically advanced to the point where space travel is a common thing. This has opened up a whole new breed of outlaws, pirates, rebels, what ever you may call them. They all have the same thought in mind, self preservation. They do what they want to survive without considering the consequences, as long as it benefits them. Most of these outlaws are rough around the edges, have battered bodies from violent conflicts and hardened attitudes. It's survival of the fittest in space.

    Design a space outlaw based on this future. Space travel is a common thing. One requirement for the design is to include a form of a visible cybernetic implant/enhancement.

    The Guidelines:
    • Must be human.
    • Can be male or female
    • Must Include cybernetic implant/enhancement
    • Think about what this character is out for. Money? Power? Thrill?
    • Think about the type of gear a person would need to survive in the environment of space.


    The Rules
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
    • At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
    • Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll
    • At least two wips posted in the finals thread
    • Background is optional
    • Have fun!

    If we're talking about the environment of space, are we to take that literally? Or can we do some sort of Han-Soloesque thing, without the whole bulky spacesuit thing going on? To put it simple: does our outlaw have to survive IN space or does he use a starship to travel from planet to planet / attack other ships? Would be nice to have something specific on this, since we might require to implement some sort of oxygen supply and stuff into the design.

    Here's my initial sketches, the girl on the right is definitely the most promising. I've always found very intricate detailed designs a bit forced so I'm going to build her more. I like her attitude and can already kind of see what she would wear from her bust sketch.

    I have a bit of a story in the works too.
    Her name is Enno, she has always been a rebel, raised in the space slums and hanging around the wrong crowds. Three years prior to the portrait she was diagnosed with cancer, human's genetic hamartia. She was offered a place in an experimental medical procedure where her genes are spliced with a that of a regenerative newt-like alien race. Out of five participants, she is the only survivor and is paid well for partaking in the experiment.
    Two years later the cancer begins to come back and she starts to deteriorate, the only cure is to collect a rare precious material native to the newt alien planet however, the planet has been off-limits for several years after a raid to mine the planet dry of the material she needs. This material gives the newt aliens their regenerative power and without it the race is dying. Since it is too expensive to buy, it becomes her bounty and finding the precious material is a constant race for survival and self-preservation.

    Let's see what we got here...

    I'm trying to bulk up my sci fi characters, they invariably go the spandex spacesuit route and that looks damn silly. A perfect opportunity.
