Looks great Vorace!!
Looks good nic ! Maybe look for something a bit more...friendly looking ? Right now she looks a bit mean/dark for a hero, in my opinion.
And don't hesitate to post some references and/or images that could help us nail a period or universe, everyone.
Well I tried to suggest her schizo dark side, but maybe it should be more subtle!
Ok I have a suggestion for a possible setting. If you feel you have a kick ass idea better than mine, dont hesitate
It could be some king of science-fiction setting, 1000+ years from now, on some icy planet. I think it could be cool to use a ''winter/snow/arctic'' setting because it's not too much used in movies/videogames and it has a lot of potential for interesting design ideas.
Some reference I can think of : Starwars episode V (the beginning of the movie), The Thing, Lost planet (video game), Icewind Dale (video game), any siberian landscape, etc
I gathered some pictures to better explain my idea
A few doodlypoos!
hey guys, here's some stuff .... humm... hard to get something that people would actually remember. Almost like an iconic feel for the hero and shadow characters. Ill keep exploring.
I dunno if i should focus more on equipment stuff or just visual aspect of costumes.... what do you guys would prefer ?
That second page is my favorite.
I hate you French people. God. Go eat a croissant, Daniel.
you sons o' bitches.
D@niel: Nice setup, though I suppose we have to push something or another with her character as she is the Hero... not sure though how exactly we visually portray that distinction...
DanielC: some freshness developing in the gear fosho! I suppose to go with Voraces setup though, perhaps a lil more tech peeping through. I was thinking that she could have some light bionic action peeping through a predominance of crazy animal pelts... but not too much tech as the mechanic can go nuts with that display, as Vorace has so expertly portrayed.
seeing how theres already plenty of sickness developing with the costuming and gear... I thought Id explore a lil facial action. Im thinking a lil on the asian sign...ode to future eskimos... lil bjorkesque... probably with light blue eyes .I also figured we should keep the face open (no masks/heavy eyewear) to best portray the character description....hmmm... also thinking that a punk type hairstyle and some tribal facial paint?? wide open for exploration. what do you guys think?
Noice work amigos!!
Nice work teammates !
I did more stuff for the Techy but need to scan it. will post them when Im back home.
I did a montage with all the designs we did for the hero, to get a better overall idea and be more effecient with comments and critics. I did also a separate image with the faces.
Smokenmirror : Im with you on the fact that we need to see the hero face. Maybe not crucial for the other characters, but for the hero it is!. I think going with a bjork-looking face is also a nice touch! Not sure for the tatoos in the face, maybe its too much cliché?
I like the strangness of face #10. maybe not for the hero, but it has a lot of personnality. My fav are #5 and #8. Maybe going with darker hair is better to create a contrast with the white/blue snowy background?
There is a LOT of wonderful ideas. You guys did a superb job!
Considering the hero's costume, I must say a particularly like DanC outfit (#4). It has big bold shapes, and his very original.
The lower part of D@n's #8 is also really interesting. I like the side belts and the huge snow pants.
IMO some design are a bit to ''slim'' (#1 and #6). Usually when you want to stay warm you need a big coat because it's full of air, and the air is an excellent isolant. Except if they are wearing some super futuristic clothes .
Wow, looking awesome Vorace!!
