Ballo --Armed and dangerous-- San Ta Ha Ana...

Here is my thing...He/she is work in progress, it isn't a final concept, I have too much to tweak and think but I like to leave all the creative process meanwhile I'm modelling the character, could be a mistake, yes, but I like to feel that. Three words, scifi, mystique and twin Siamese...and elegant...well four words.

Really cool. But armed? Await updates.
*(GOZER)-During the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex Supplicants, it chose the form of a giant SLOAR...

Thanks mates. Actually I'm bit lost with the weapon. Any ideas? I will try to design something soon, and model!

The free online dictionary defines "weapon" as:
weapon [ˈwɛpən]n1. (Military / Arms & Armour (excluding Firearms)) (Military / Firearms, Gunnery, Ordnance & Artillery) an object or instrument used in fighting
2. anything that serves to outwit or get the better of an opponent his power of speech was his best weapon
3. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Zoology) any part of an animal that is used to defend itself, to attack prey, etc., such as claws, teeth, horns, or a sting
4. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Anatomy) a slang word for *censored*

So I guess the green breath of death might be arguably enough, but will it make an impact on the judges/viewers?

Maybe give it something in the form of a religious/mystical symbol for channeling energy ... or some biotic weapon maybe.
You might just as well keep the breath of death and depending if it's a close range/long range thing the weapon could cover the other fighting distances?

Thanks SunsSkull. Really good point.

I'm thinking about the religious ornaments. I will try to design something related, but more futuristic. I don't know from where start..anw. here is a bit of small update. It is the first rough attempt to match the concept, quite a bit frustrated to undestand what I painted.

Because I love the creative process and test and change the idea meanwhile I model, the faces looks a bit vamp right now, who knows the end how will be...

A new concept, this time more medieval than scifi. But I'm trying to focus in the main character because the first concept was so blurry. and I don't like the 3dmodel, so restart.

  02 February 2012
and a new more, this time to study the scifi idea.

  02 February 2012
I prefer the more mystical idea, for me it has a feel of an ancient mythology (greek or nordic) creature, specially because of the blindfolded eyes.
Concerning the topic of a weapon, on the contest rules they talk about a item that the character wields, so I don't know if the idea of the green breath of death qualifies, better check with the contest management.

Cheers and best of luck

I like the idea

Both Ideas look ok, but the high tech looks like it will make a way more interesting sculpt.

I'd be interested to see a combination of the two. High tech cybernetic stuff peeking out from the folds of a robe
When I first appear I may seem mysterious, but when explained I'm nothing serious.

a staff-ish weapon or a blade with a long handle could go in right(our right) hand of ur 1st concept art itself..the pose suits that well...

and something like an alien-egyptian looking staff would have both mystic-futuristic feel to it

awesum work..

i think there were some really cool weapons in stargate 1994 movie
  02 February 2012
Ey, thanks Luis. Yes, I'm designing a weapon as an item, but right now I would like to start with the modelling and leave the weapon at the end.

Thanks Nikizar

Hi h2olt I like the futuristic idea as well, but the previous concept was a bit silly. My first idea was a bit of religious scifi style but in that case the arm was too "cyborg"

Thaks pyrocube, good recommendations. I love that movie!.

Here is my last concept. I'm quite happy with the costume and feeling I think is quite close that my first idea. So now start to modelling!
