This year I decided to participate in Comicon Challenge, into 3D section 🙂 (First time challenge yeahei !)
This year theme is “super hero/vilain from any paper comic”. If you like super hero (from american comics, manga…) go take a look, it’s seriously amazing, a lot of challengers have stunning models ! Badass guys, stylised vilains, sooooo great ! It make me feel so exited and humble at same time.
My character will be “Garami” from a japanese comics “The Arms Peddler” ((牙の旅商人, Kiba no Tabishounin), a Dark Fantasy-Western inspired comics. One of the main protagonist is this lady who carry a dark sword on her back, sell weapons to those who need them and ride a dark carriage pull by zombie horses (so damn cool).
For the challenge we have free method, so I’m going to do a complete character-creation process with studies, mood/attitude sketchs and final concept + modelsheet. Here is my today very first sketchs, I try to understand the character clothes and search for interesting poses. I’m gonna draw her coat in the next steps and see what could “look” more interesting for her 3D version.
