Nora Redesign by JECBrush Nora Redesign by JECBrush
Here's a redesign of my Star Fox fan character, Nora. I decided to simplify her color palette a bit from her old outfit so it congeals her look a bit better and balanced.

She's just chilling after work in a cafe on Corneria.

Nora's looking cuter and a more sexual lady now, nice work on her redesign.

This image is absolutely amazing and beautiful. The colors are so vivid and it looks three dimensional. Not only that, but I really love Nora's design. It fits so well into Star Fox whilst being its own original thing. She has such a pretty, feisty, and badass womanly look. Her ponytail is cute (I quite like the touch of the white tip on it, like a fox's tail) and her outfit is appropriately sci-fi and nicely detailed. In this picture, she looks so casual, giving the character more depth. Your holographic screens are incredibly realistic, with just the right amount of transparency, and you have a good understanding of three dimensional space and color. This just feels like it's an actual place, and that is truly awesome.

No problem!

By the way, what would be Nora's recommended ranged weapon type? Assault rifle? Handgun? Etc? (Just a heads up that the weapons I had in mind are a futuristic mix on modern weaponry(M4A1, SVD, FAL, etc.))

She mainly uses handguns and uncommonly auto-pistols as she often wields her fusion cutter on opposite hand. Her expertise lie around CQC ranges but can push herself to engage targets at medium range. With long ranged weapons she begins to struggle with target man-sized enemies.

Nora had no formal military firearms training with most weapon types.

Man I have been looking for you for awhile. 3 years ago I really started drawing.. I googled star fox art cause I was a big fan, and your stuff came up and lead me to your page. It was a big inspiration and I guess you could say you somewhat got me into drawing, and art.

Well greetings good sir!

I'm quite happy to know that. Honestly, I still am trying to get over the fact that my stuff inspires individuals like you. ^^ I appreciate your interest in drawing. Keep doing what you love doing man, it can take you places!

Well it sure did. Though my page at the moment may not reflect it i went from doodling occasionally to now, I have completed one semester in animation school and am switching schools over to game art.

I still have a ways to go before I have reached your lvl of painting abilities but I have come a long way sense 3 years ago. And I probably wouldn't have done it had I not used your stuff for early reference.

I kinda wish I did what you are doing now by switching from animation to game art and design. But regardless, I wish you great success in what you are achieving.

If you're interested, check out FZD demo videos from Feng Zhu on YouTube www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL. The school he runs focus on the design theory concept and game design. He provides useful tips, resources, and shares a bit of behind-the-scenes business processes of game and film design through digital works. I'm still watching the videos to get inspired and get better at digital painting.

Hey Worgen. Been a long time hasn't it? :P I resumed practicing a couple of weeks before coming back. I didn't want to post poor scribbles on my return. :P

I'm still interested. It'll be a little while though before I fully get back on track. ^^

Ahh yes! I am very glad to have this opportunity! Greeting, SirBrush! I have been a great admirer of your work for as long as I can remember!

I've been in development of my own custom story, that is essentially a massive crossover story that has a Smash Brothers like roster, yet has a Kingdom Hearts like story. And your version of the Star Fox universe just so happens to be a piece of a much larger puzzle. In fact, I recently introduced it. I will always give credit to your material whenever it is introduced, but that is not what I wanted to ask you.

Your character Nora Leslie shares similar personality traits to one of my own characters named Jason Urn who is a bounty hunter, and is also Human.

This hunter and his team were sent to assassinate Fox McCloud to ensure that he will not become a threat to his employer. But before he can deliver the finishing blow, he remembers his conscience, and lets Fox live. Disappointed by this, the employer betrays Jason, and summons a fleet to destroy the Great Fox while Jason, his team, and their former target are still inside. As an apology, Jason and his team take Star and Crimson Fox to their ship, and fly off in hopes of escaping.

These events later cause a feud between Nora and Jason. She feels enraged that this hunter nearly killed one of her friends, yet she is glad that their is a gentler side to him, noticing that some of Jason's team members see him as a father figure of sorts. Much like how Nora is somewhat of a mother to her team.

Nora also feels slight jealousy that she was not deemed to be important enough to be a high valued target in the eyes of whoever hired the Human.  

I have wanted to ask this for what feels like an eternity. How would you feel about Jason and Nora being possibly romantically involved in the future of this story?

I don't mind at all. If it makes you happy, you can go ahead with your story.

Even though I have created Nora and the rest of my characters, I've allowed pretty much anyone to create a story with them.

So go and have fun! ^^
