Beta by Dualmask Beta by Dualmask
One of my original characters.

Cherie Wilson was the only female member of the Hudson Multinational Corporation's Executive Security, an elite soldier unit hired to protect the Corp's most valuable employees, including their head of Research and Development, Chelsea Romedrux. But during the event known as the fall of Corp Hudson, Executive Security found themselves being replaced by an army of mindless drones known as Security Soldiers, in an effort to replace human soldiers, hampered by free will, with automatons that would obey any order without fail. Rather than allow herself to be killed or replaced so unceremoniously, Cherie, along with her teammates Jason Priest and Don Thompson, pleaded to Dr. Chelsea to come up with a way for them to continue to serve, even if it meant giving up their human bodies to do it.

Chelsea, desperate to create a force powerful enough to overcome her mortal enemy Nia Black, agreed and began experimentation on Cherie, Jason and Don, augmenting their bodies with parts from an unfinished combat robot. Jason, codenamed Alpha, received augmentation on his arms; Don, codenamed Gamma, was given the core of the machine as armor over his trunk; and Cherie, codenamed Beta, received augmentation on her legs. Together, the trio became known as Hudson's Exterminator team, or Team HEX for short, and they were tasked with a single mission: find Nia Black, and destroy her.

Beta's cybernetic legs give her impressive, running, leaping and kicking abilities, and combined with her natural martial arts skill, make her a deadly foe. She is the quickest of the three members of HEX.

This has me wanting to get back into drawing my core characters and exploring my main universe again...I'm going to draw her more in the future, and her legs are going to be redesigned.

Thanks. She definitely needs a redesign though. Or maybe her older appearance was fine and I took this attempt too far in the wrong direction.

I somehow missed your birthday, so I'll do a version of her for you and we'll see if you still feel the same way.

Well, she's got a good power-pose, and it accents her cybernetic legs well. What sort of redesigns do you have planned for her legs?

Glad you like it! I'm thinking of changing her lower half so everything below the waist is more robotic in nature, rather than making it look like armor or high tech thigh high boots. I have a book for learning to draw mecha lying around that should come in handy.

Glad you like her! I actually want to redesign the legs...keep them just as sturdy looking, but make much more hi-tech and sleek.

Oh yeah, I like her. Very nice OC Jonathan. I like the design of her cybernetics as well.

Thanks! Actually I think I rushed her cybernetic parts way too much. :iconmr-marcus-81: gave me some ideas as to how to improve her, such as making her entire lower half robotic instead of just from the thighs down.

Sounds cool. I'd like to do a fan art of her after you get a final design ready. I've been doing a few cyborg/android sketches so I'm ready for whatever you throw at me:)

This is great! So strong, so solid, so feminine, so sexy! Very cool costume, is she from the same universe as Jet Dancer or is she a separate project?

Thanks! She's one of my oldest characters, actually predates Jet and many of my other characters...currently she's a villain meant to be an adversary for Nia, but she may also be a Jet enemy for later, although the two are similar (Beta has cybernetic legs) so I might want to keep them apart.

I know mecha isn't your thing, but I could imagine her with some crazy, decked out legs.  It does look like she's just wearing some hi-tech boots here rather than giving the inclination of cybernetic leg replacements.

Exactly, and that wasn't really my intent, but I can definitely see what you're saying. I was trying to streamline the look because I don't do well when it comes to lots of intricate mechanical detail, so I figured I'd try an animation-like approach to her having cybernetic parts. Plus I was kind of rushing for the contest, but I definitely want to draw her again and do it better. Kind of hoping whatever you decide to do will help inspire me.

I've got a few things in mind for her legs...one of them being that it's not just her legs, but her whole lower body (if nothing else starting from her hips down).  I saw an appendix to an old GITS comic book from back in the day where Shirow made a great point in saying that it would cause more damage if a cybernetic limb were grafted on at the thigh or bicep rather than a major joint, as physics would cause for the cybernetic limb to either rip away from the organic parts when trying to use it's augmented strength.

I'll continue to stew on some ideas...:plotting:

Yeah, see, that's the kind of thing I would never have thought of...I'm really the human-in-tight-leather-with-guns-and-swords kind of character designer, not the augmented cyborg/robot maker. Maybe I should have just stuck with the armor or boots idea for Beta and her teammates rather than cyberization; it suits me better.

Still, I'm eager to see what you come up with.

Ah, I can see why you could want to keep them separate, then! Still, very cool design, and that's one of the things that makes a great, memorable adversary and rival!
