Breach - LordPanzer
show user profile  LordPanzer
This appeals to me so I have to take a shot. :D Who knows, I might learn something.

I'm no good at characters so I'll make it a robot. I'm thinking something armored to indestructibility. Basically a walking shield with a gun sticking out the middle, and a bunch of useful gadgets, for breaching bulkheads and such, on arms coming around the shield.

I have an image in my head but not much time today. Will do some scetching later.

A robot is still a character... Or do you just not like Organic Meshes? Now's the time to learn man!

I mean I haven't even done the JoA tut. The image in my head wouldn't solidify to the point where I could draw it, and looked kinda goofy to begin with. Guess I'll make it a humanoid, or maybe just a guy in armor. Still gonna carry a shield the size of a door, though.

JoA, here I come.

My first idea looked kinda like these high-end engineer pets from Anarchy Online. I always hated those things so I'm scrapping that.

Then I got inspired by Fulgore, a character from Killer Instinct, the SNES and N64 fighter game. I always loved this guy and thought it was completely unfair for the others to be put up against him.
I don't think my finished guy will look a whole lot like him. I'll add a lot of armor, a shield and a gun. I will have some form of close combat weapon, but not the claws.

My mind strayed to bio-engineering, and I decided to make him a mindless cyborg (though this may not be evident by looking at him) with a berserk-chip in his brain. I've started drawing some reference images that I may or may not adhere to, depending on what it looks like in 3D. I'll post that later.

This is the extent of my drawing skills. Not exactly what I'm aiming for but I'll use it as a rough shape guide. For what it's worth.

Changed my mind. I found some really good modeling references for a woman so in the interest of teaching myself how to model characters, it'll be a female ninja of sorts. Tooled up with a bunch of neotech gadgets and a skintight costume.
I'll take inspiration from the Callidus Assassin from the warhammer 40k universe.

Cool cool, why you appear to be changing your mind at every turn, at-least you're sticking relatively close to the same idea, you're just pushing it that bit further with the more you find. Keep it up!
