Title: Starcraft: Ghost (fan Art)
Name: Jason Chan
Country: United States
Software: Painter, Photoshop

This is a fan piece of Blizzard's upcoming Starcraft: Ghost. I tried to get her design down from various screen shots and model renders, so it's probably not 100% correct. I was almost done painting the piece before I found out that there were cg renders of her from E3...

Anyway, I started with a pencil sketch that I scanned into Photoshop. I put in my basic colors in Photoshop and then opened it up in Painter to add in the details.

At this point I'm fairly happy with it, but I'd like to see what everyone else thinks. Any critiques are welcome.

I love the character rendering and the general mood and colors of this piece, though i think that maybe some tightening of the lines in the fabricated fixtures like the pipes and machinery might help a bit...but then again the overall looseness is what I enjoy in this work as well.

Inspired!

"I like her!" :D Great picture... "You're going to the front!" * Don't know the character that well... already saw some videos and stuff but not too much... "maybe" I would give a little bit more of glow to the blue parts of her right arm and legs...

I love it! A simple but appealing pose, great lighting and mood. Some of the best fanart I've seen. I somehow wish you'd gone for your own design though as you clearly have the talent for it.

Nice, she looks cute! The texture build up is nice in the background, and the highlights on the face work good. The highlights on her ribcage area are kinda odd, it could be done differently, but that is really nitpicking. Nice work:thumbsup:

I love the mood of color and the pose, but just one suggestion, the blue elements must be glowing and autoligthed. Ah...! the face it's cute i love her, i wait so long for this game :sad:

This is stunning. Your use of the brush for modeling form is exceptional. Truly great work, Kudos!

Totally smoking babe.
Like everyone else says, I love the mood, just a tad of the facial tones in the thighs and a little tightening of the collar right under the neck. Regardless, I haven't seen anything like it. What a render!! Full of life. :drool:

nice,

more interesting than some of the official blizzard artwork.

although I'd say your version doesnt seem quite athletic enough for the role she's meant
to play.

However I would enjoy banging the hooie out of her,
which is always a plus mind you.. hmmmm...

Great style, respect. The glowing seams are a excellent touch. May I ask at what resolution this was made?

I hated on Starcraft when I would send my ghosts to nuke Zergs in cloaked mode, but then they would get detected and get slaughtered by Zergs. I would be really sad if this girl got wasted.

I like the buildup of paint on her face and body. It's awesome, sometime people (including myself) have it too smooth and thin and no textures, but your pic is top notch stuff. :buttrock:

Ok now I got to ask the annoying Painter newb questions.

In Painter what brush do you use for her? Did you start with a pencil sketch first? Could you share some of your technique?

I love this pic! You made a great design for the suit, the girl is cute, equipement is cool and I also like the solid colors, the way you did the light and the dirtyness of the room and walls. :applause:

Awww....she looks so sweet. :D Almost too sweet considering shes supposed to look like a black-ops/assasin.

Still a beautiful picture, you really caught the mood of the game's "dark-styled-future" with that background. :)

BTW, is that bottle her drink? :D

Personally, I feel it would be better if her eyes were looking directly at the viewer or looking sidewards instead of staring up. But nonetheless, great piece of work!

It's great!. But I see something a little off with light. Maybe the torso needs stronger shadow drop. Boobs have no shadows on torso but I'm not sure where does the light source comes. Maybe thats the problem. Small detail. :thumbsup:

I love it! I wouldn't mind seeing the feet area lost in the dark a bit more and as someone else note a bit more lighting on the machinery. Probably best to not try an dfix somethign that isn't broken. Well done.

excellent artwork, I love the way you posed the character, the gesture looks really nice.
the character kinda remind me a main girl from a japanese comic-"Gunnm," but in an American version.
Looks really cool
please post more stuff on, I cann't wait to see it.
