HOPE - Character Concept by SeanNash HOPE - Character Concept by SeanNash
Concept piece based on my Original Character.

I wanted to just create a style for the character as I've never really done that yet. I wanted to create something futuristic yet something we wear now. So the leather jacket became part of her outfit with just a low cut white top underneath keeping that simple allowed me to go over the top with other parts such as the shoes with lights, the metal armored legs and computer padded shoulders. I wanted to mix it up a bit and just have fun with it.

Character Story

As a young girl she was taken from her home, enslaved by machined men driven to destroy the human planet, kept as nothing but a slave. As the years went on she grew to be stronger. Then one night she escapes, but finds herself in a world that is deserted and lost. She travels across empty lands finding no city's or homes or humans just pieces of a world that no longer exists. All she can do is hope to find something of her past . Something to keep her going through this corrupted world. Alone she fights to find a way to bring hope to the world.

Oh but the charming mix of astonishing colors, they blind my eyes not out of mastery alone, but the sensible feeling that was put and fueled into the creation of this somewhat, masterpiece. The tones of the green and hues of blue and purple play amid my restless eyes, I'm quite satisfied with the overall composition and scenery lighting.

Her hair makes it look as if times stops at her magnificently drawn eyes, it is a perfect portrait from the Orange hair to the somewhat confusing heels. I'm impressed, yet the way this beautiful art is colored seems to lack a bit of variation and life.

I know not whether the structural circle in her pelvis is intentionally positioned in such a manner, but I can perceive it as either a good symbolism to her sexuality which is not quite necessarily to portray in this piece. Or simply abstract and beyond my scope to imagine, whether it is a cosmetic addition or a trait of seduction.

I love your design, yet it pulls on my memories of quite old Cyber Punk works, I don't think I'm much content with the style, but it is a good one either way.

The background's color is perfect, yet the scene it conveys kind of distract the viewer from the beauty of your design, you should have picked a more related scene. Perhaps an alley full of wires in some Cyber Punk City? I'm only suggesting.

Anyway, I can't simply walk away without admitting, I'm in love with the idea and the colors behind this. :)
What do you think?

That's a great concept of a cyborg girl in search of humanity within and around her.

Ah thank you, I always wanted to create a short comic, but felt my art style wasn't ready for what I wanted to do. But maybe soon I shall do a short story based on her, :plotting:

Yes, I wanted to show the lights off at the bottom so gave her a pose with a turn on her foot, as the piece was just to show off some style of the character :aww:

:giggle: Oh, It takes a while, but its just all about practice :) You'll be a pro in no time.

I so wish there was a book with your story.
She seems to be one of your favourite OCs. :)
I love her eyes and her jacket, but the shoes confuse me a bit... The colours are just perfect.
The trees around make me imagine that this was once a place full of technology, but the machines gave up on it and as it deteriorated the vegetation took in. What is exactly the story of where she is? (Okay, okay, I confess I just adore the concept :XD:)

P.S. I got a tablet! Woo! I am crap at everything. Not so "woo"... :ashamed:

:aww: Thank you for the kind comment yet again :thanks:

She was a character I came up with when I was like 12 hehe! I always loved Sci fi movies and games. I've never really thought about the location of the story, As the world is part of an apocalyptic/Futuristic time. But it would end up she finds a city, called the Last city of light, a place where humans fight back against machines. In my head I'd base he art around new york or Chicago with derelict buildings and a futuristic style.

:giggle: Yeah as for the shoes, as I know you always love boots, These are kinda like an all in one armor piece. If you think of Wallace and Gromit's machine legs :) [link]
Its all linked together , she bottom part has LCD lights so she'd be able to see around her in the dark exploring.

And I was terrible at first with my Tablet, I actually drew a stick man and failed my first time :giggle: But you will find you can't live without it soon enough :)

You're welcome. :aww:

Oh, I find that the characters we create around that time are the ones who stick with us the longest. It happened to me as well. ^_^
I hope that someday you manage to write a story about her.

:giggle: Boots are L:heart:VE! And H0p3's armour looks way cooler :XD:
LCD lights! Now I understand the boots better - her left leg is slightly turned, right? :)

Oh, I tried writing with it yesterday... >.< so hard! Then I tried drawing manga eyes... it's like my hands are playing tricks on me!
Thank you for the encouragement, though. :tighthug:
