Good God, that took a while!

This is, as the title suggests, Rebyka, a character developed by Thraxis of the Altermeta.com forums. She was drawn to his specifications.

She looks a little... different from other kuvrahks. Her appearance is the result of the horrific genetic and cyborg modifications made to her by the scientists who created the Black Talons supersoldiers. The experiments turned her scales and skin black, nearly bleached her hair, made her grow six horns, messed with her eye color, augmented her height, and gave her considerable strength and agility. There were other side effects, too, but I won't go into those.

She left the Talons mercenary group to become an agent with Counterterrorists 'R' Us, the organization which Paladin works for. Their relationship promises to be very... interesting.

The main issue I had with this was the color. She has black scales, VERY dark gray skin, and is wearing black leather. Also, her corneas are black. Proper differentiation was a challenge for me! Also, I've never had to do lighting on leather before, so I floundered on that for a while. That is, until I managed to find some good reference pictures of Sephiroth and "FFVII: Advent Children" cosplayers... :D

I'm satisfied with this, and I like how my leather turned out, but all that black keeps this out of my all-time personal favorites.

Specs:
-Time: 5-7 hours
-Line: Faber-Castell PITT artist pens on blue printout of original sketch
-Color: Adobe Photoshop 7.0
-Shading: airbrush/cel style

-Rebyka character belongs to Thraxis
-kuvrahk concept and design belong to

Zat be some serious hawtness. I'm suprised Kraken was able to talk to me today after this. Thought he'd be paralyzed by all of the leather. That and the leather's contents. ^^

Thats also the first use of cosplayers I've ever seen to do something.

Everything has its use, even cosplayers! XD

I'm glad you like it!

(Maybe Kraken saved himself 'cause he made his own rendition...)
