I really like the wings. Don't know about the netting around her arms and legs though. Shouldn't the netting be more snug to her skin?

for this concept I am going to try and capture a strong sense of adventure and wonder. the character will be embarked on a journey full of obstacles in a world that is very huge. the scale will be set by the insect companions that the character has with her. and a vast landscape that I will need to composite.

the setting will be a mystical land were magic is common and the differences between good and evil are contrasting..

wish me luck

Beautiful modeling - looking forward to the concept sketch :thumbsup:

the story behing the picture is the mystical tower in the distance.

I am going to attempt to create a massive landscape with the apropriate level of detail. this will be a big challenge for me because I am new to maya. but a challenge is what I signed up for ;-)

I may revise this concept sketch in the next week but anycomments on the basic layout or colors are apreciated..

I have been just trying some initial textures. just getting the uv's layed out so I can add some tatoos. also I have been playing with the misss shader for mental ray.. I am going to try to add hair now.
