DWIV - 3D - aRobbins - untitled

hey all! This is my first time participating in Dominance Wars, and I'm excited to get going despite the late start.
This is just a first pass at concept, which will almost definitely be changing. I first started with the idea of going the Demon Princess route, but the more I developed the character, the less she seemed to fit into that category, but, for now... let it begin!
any and all feedback is greatly appreciated

colors look cool but looks feeble and less freaky to be demon princess!

Looks more like a bee princess, she can be that, but it's more norm I think

Yeah, looks more like some sort of alien than demon if you ask me. Nevertheless it looks cool.

more waspy ideations

Thanks for the comments so far
I have done some more concept-ing in order to pin down a silhouette for the final. She is of the Norm class and is, in fact, a wasp. I am still debating whether to anthropomorphize her more, especially in terms of her face. I am also still playing with her weaponry, but I'm rather fond of the idea of her having a long-range weapon such as a glaive.
I have also started playing with the colors for her armor. While I like the blues I was working with earlier, I was thinking that, perhaps for stealth purposes, she should be a little bit more camouflaged? Still not sure. Any thoughts?



hmm... still not working
I shall try again later on another computer, but for now, a link will have to suffice -->

I was finally able to upload images! yay!
So, here are some more ideation sketches/color sketches that I've been working on. I'm currently working on my final concept sketch so that I'll be able to start modeling this weekend.
I'm still trying to decide on her class. I wanted her to be a stalker, but her coloring isn't exactly camouflage-able, so I started playing with the colors, but I'm not sure which I'll end up using in the end.
Oh well, for now, sketches away!

If you used the same concept and shapes, and made it a machine scout, that would look really cool I reckon!

I think I'm for a mix of silhouette 4 and 5 (The bulk of 4, the shapes of 5 especially the chest, butt and weapon)...I like the action flying pose of the top row.

Hey all,
this is my final pass on my concept (as final as it will be for now, although I'm sure I'll be changing things as I go). I've already started modeling and am about 3/4 of the way done with my first pass, so I'll probably be posting that this week (hopefully by wednesday).
The only thing that I haven't fully resolved are the wings.. they still feel a little incomplete to me, so those may be changing over the course of modeling.
So, without further ado...

Really really sweet concept. I love the style! This could be killer in 3d with the right shader.

model complete :)

I have finally completed my model
ah, sweet success..
I still have to model the weapon, and I have plenty of leftover polys with which to finesse this further even. I'm going to be starting a first pass in z-brush tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes, especially considering that I'm not entirely decided on an over-all material for her armor and costuming...
anyways, on we go!

so, it's been a while since I posted anything new up here.... I'm still working on the textures and finalizing the color and spec map.. I'm also considering playing with a glow map, but that may have to wait until I'm a little closer to done. I've worked out a pose (not sure if it's final) and I'm definitely going to revise the base and lighting. So, without further ado, this is my latest pass of my model..
