I haven't painted a character design in a while, so I came up with this guy. He's a mech pilot, for some mech that I haven't designed yet....I'll get to it eventually. I also worked out a regular pilot suit, which I still need to render up. That one will happen for sure in the next week or so. The rest of this week is the San Diego Comic-Con(!), so I'm taking a bit of a break for a few days to head down there. Hope to see some friendly faces there!
I wanted to mess with that previous goblin design a little bit more and changed the proportions a little bit. So I took the old model, pushed and pulled it around and re-sculpted sections of it. Then I chose a slightly different color design for it and re-composited/painted in the background....and there ya go.
I was looking at the mech/armor from Appleseed a while back and that design really sunk into my head. I wanted to do something influenced by that, so I came up with this. I'm still having fun with the insect shapes, so I kept going along those lines. For an operator to fit in the suit properly, I would have to go back and take a better look at the proportions of that center torso area. It's all good though. I had fun with this one.
