I’ve been playing Overwatch these days. It really is a great game. I hadn’t realized it’s been out for a year now. I just caught the end of Competitive Season 4 and worked my way pretty close to Diamond maining Mercy. Once I got into her play style I found it quite fun when compared to more spastic characters like Tracer, and a little more nuanced than Reinhardt.
2b, Nier Automata
Great game. Great story. Great character designs. I highly recommend this game.
Zero Suit Samus Aran, Metroid
I recently watched a speed run of Super Metroid that was pretty impressive. So here I am making some artwork of Samus.
The C in CMYK. Part of an 8 piece set.
The M in CMYK. Part of an 8 piece set.
The G in RGB. Part of an 8 piece set.
Dana Scully, X-Files
I still have yet to watch the most recent mini-series, but the X Files is one of the best shows.
Slave Leia, Star Wars
I don’t know why it took me over two decades after having seeing the original Star Wars trilogy for me to draw a picture of Princess Leia. Also, I think it is a bit odd that Jabba the Hut seems to have an obsession with humanoid women. Are his fellow slug monsters not attractive to him? Maybe having a neck that you can put a collar on has something to do with it.
Spider Gwen, Marvel
I love the sleek costume design of Spider Gwen, and personally think Gwen should never have died in the main universe. Spider Gwen is a great consolation though, it would be amazing if she showed up in the movie universe.
I’ve finally got around to colouring my DVa sketch. I tried out a slightly different painting technique for this one that ended up not only being faster, but I also really like how it turned out. Instead of painting each colour individually I did essentially three black and white lighting passes – one for ambient occlusion, one for the direct light, and one for rim. I think the ambient occlusion lends a sense of realism, and the technique is familiar since a lot of 3d rendering programs use AO as well.
I’ve been overdosing a bit on Overwatch the game, especially with the latest halloween update. I feel bad for all the other games I’m not playing. Overwatch is just so good.
Commander Shepard, Mass Effect
Female Commander Shepard aka “FemShep” from the Mass Effect series of video games.
Tomb Raider, Lara Croft Lounging
Lara Croft. The original Tomb Raider.
Morrigan, Dragon Age Witch of the Wilds
I started playing Dragon Age Inquisition and am quite liking it so far. I also played and loved the first two Dragon Age games.
Revisiting a few characters again to hopefully do them better justice as I improve a little. Power Girl has been a favourite of mine.
Arise: Ghost in the Shell, Motoko Kusinagi
Motoko from the anime reboot of Ghost in the Shell: Arise. This was a 3d sculpt and render that I had left for a while and decided should be finished up. I was also working on a Tachikoma, but for the complexity I want it may end up taking too long, so I’m happy to leave it at this and do some art that isn’t Ghost in the Shell related for a while.
Motoko Kusinagi, Ghost in the Shell
Motoko from the series of anime and manga Ghost in the Shell. This particular outfit was part of the tv series “Stand Alone Complex”.
