Here is the main idea for the scene: Athaclena, leading the Neo-Chimps attack, discovers a gorilla in the laboratory.

Here I'm working on the Athaclena character. Cause she's part of Tymbrimi kind I'm interpreting her as a sort of a human and fox mix (this way the Tymbrini kind is described). First, following the start pose, I've drawn the human base and now adding some "fox" detail. As you can see I'm working also on her clothes.

I love your style Captain, very clean immages but with a lot of detail. ^_^

Thanks for comment :).

Due to the detail level I thought, I'm wondering if creating an hybrid 2D-3D illustration would be less time consuming. The main scene will be 3D (model, texture, lighting, rendering) and the I'll add some little details in 2D (perhaps even the fur, let's see).

Cheers.

Athaclena character is completed. Now I'll start working on the human while also starting to model something.

See you.

I started working on the Gorila model to insert into the capsule.
I didn' start from scratch the model. I used a free model gently shared by Silo's forum user Teyon.

Teyon's model contribuition (http://www.silo3d.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12376)

Cause I need mainly the back of the gorila I'm not working to much on the front. Still thinking how to create fur: real fur or simply painted over?

Hey Michele great modeling and perfect topology! I think, you must use the real fur. I'm waiting with curiosity for your next post.

Good luck!

Gorila mesh complete with no wire overlap. As you can see the front side is not well modeled as the back side which the one I'm interested into. In the scene, infact, you'll see just the back.
Now, I'll start posing the gorila into the capsule and creating his "armor".

The pose for the gorila into the capsule. Now it's all simmetrical but I'll correct this. I'll start also the armor.

I started working on the Athaclena model. Again, I used a base model: this time I used a Make Human woman base model. I modified her legs and head to match the fox-human concept drawn.
I'starting working on her clothes.

I've completed the Athaclena model. Now I'll starting posing her into the scene. Definitely I decided just to render diffuse and shadows pass and then paint it over in Photoshop.

I finally complete the Athaclena's pose and exported everything into Max to start creating lighting. Cause I really have to go fast, I decided to create the lighting into Max. I've more confidence with this tool instead of XSI, which I used to model the capsule.

Leading the Neo-Chimps, the Tymbrimi girl Athaclena enters the illegal laboratory "Howlettes Center" were Neo-Chimps are trying to uplift some Gorila individuals. She stands in front of one of them, sadly looking at him: such a powerful and woderful primate reduced to an experiment, to a slave. She's wondering if is this the way the Uplift philosophy has come to...
