Just finished the initial concept.... needs alot of work from here but I thought I should get something up at the very least

she still needs a name though

here's her brief

Name: Sera Thatcher Avatar of the FlameGuard
Race: Human(oid?)
Class: Warlord
Artifact: FlameGuard (Suit of Armour, Fire/lava)

her main weapon is the giant magical gauntlets and those spiky things on here back are going to be holding lamps/torches/brazers or something

more defined concept on the way

*edit* thanks to LIANNA's suggestions i have fixed the pose

Good start BERNIE :D I hope you give her some hair or something though, she's looking mighty masculine so far (though I know it's just a preliminary sketch) Here are some tips for making her look more female, that don't involve making her look like a tart.

- The pose: women's centers of gravity are generally lower than men's so try to keep that in mind when posing a girl. It'd look a bit cooler if you pushed the pose a bit further, having her hips more foreward and her back arched back a little in a defiant pose.

- the head/neck: the big thick cords in the neck look pretty manly. Women have more slender necks (generally) and smoother jawlines. It might be hard to tell the gender if her face/head look very angular.

That's my two bits worth Bernie, hope you turn out a sweet model there Bernie.

This is the final (ish) concept its open to change and i need to decide on the colour,
feel free to comment and critic (please dear god critic my work!)
here is her "grey"

Still needs a name i will try to get a story up.

lookin good Bern!

Fire needs a bit more lovin in the concept, it doesn't quite look hot enough to my eye. Might be a matter of stylization tho :-)

Still need to put he cgtalk logo in there someplace (inside the jewel on her armor maybe?)

It'd look awesome if there were some little sparks or something coming off the flames, and some glow around the fire too.

And just as a practical point...her high heel boots are WAY too spiky. With heavy armor on she'd be striking oil with every step with those. Again, personal taste ;)

Looking foreward to seeing her in glorious 3d! :D

Neat idea with the Pendulum thingies hanging off her back, can't wait to see in 3D

okey dokey just started the 3d stuff today and this is as far as i got need to figure her arms out as of yet and the rack on her back is very temp BUT its a start
as you can see i deviates quite a bit from the concept but i like it better this way
im thinking of changing her artifact to a flame sword but i havent commited yet,
her stories starting to develop in my head when i get something worth reading ill post,

ok so ive finished chunking out here aromour and stuff
the sword is going to be made out of partially hardened lava and will be on fire

03 March 2008, 11:59 PM
finished the sword AND! just playin around with sum fire stuff

what do you guys think?

Looking good, nice form and concept. I'm going to do a similar weapon made of obsidian which is volcanic glass. This was used by many mesoamerican cultures in ritual sacrifice. The idea will be that once the weapon strikes it's victim it will return to it's original form of malten lava.

Keep up the great work!
