Another fairly short post, as I'll be in California for the next few days, away from my lovely computer.
I've recently been doing some work on a character who plays a fairly important role in parts of the Novus Imperium storyline I've been developing, but who until now has received fairly little attention in terms of artwork: Captain Jerid Bannon. He is a member of "Green Team," an elite group of Karic special forces operatives with police cross-training, tasked with protecting Karic from internal threats (I had initially come up with this description a couple months back. Immediately after typing it out, I realized that if you replace "Karic" with "Japan" in that sentence I basically just described Ghost in the Shell's "Section 9." Appropriate, since they fill similar roles).
My latest design for the good captain:
I've tried to improve on his original helmet/face designs (originals can be seen here: Link). The new helmet especially looks more aggressive.
That's about all I've got at the moment., though readers of this blog do get a sneak-preview of this year's updated reference of my character Reina Cloude, showcasing a new digital inking style:
It's still in the middle stages, obviously. The full reference will of course be a full-body front and back multiview, with a background.
Stay tuned next Wednesday, as I'll be doing a special extra-long entry on starship design.
Until then, cheerio!
