View Full Version : Charachter concept: spider unit

Latest updated images: These are the two shots competing for my affections
SPIDER GANG: a bunch of guys with spider packs claim a slum in the old part of town. (the red spots will be the men with spiderpacks) this of coars is just a thumbnail
THE SNIPER: just a sniper, this would showcase the pack more, but I think the shot is boring... what do you guys think

I wanted to make a sniper unit, or an ambush unit that could travel exactly where they need to be in order to kill thier targets, and I figured "whats harder to find than a spider?"
so I came up with this neato contraption:

then started work on this guy:

and here is where I am in the coloring process:

Rip this piece into tinly little shreads, be as harsh as you feel, I promise I wont take it personally. (edit: oh and yes the straps attaching our little hero to his spiderpack are on thier way!)

That's a great concept, and nice work on the lighting/shading. More!

thanks guys, I was thinking of maybe starting back up from scratch with a better pose... and less obvious colors.

cause if you think about it, in those colors he is just a sitting duck.

Good point. Maybe greens or browns would be better. Great concept, I like it.

i agree, more camoflauge colors depending on where this sniper is deployed? Like the concept!
