Marine is the oldest original character I have and I like to try new designs or color ideas with her.
This time I was inspired by :iconpixeloo: 's amazing work and I tried doing something similar (the important word here is 'tried' ;) ). It was a great deal of fun to do and I like the wacky result :D
In the right margin are a new haircut design idea and others characters complaining about my favoritism.

One day I'll post something with Marine's design evolution of the past 12 years, so you can all laugh :)

wait. the middle looks uncannily like a photograph! What's going on there? I'm seriously impressed by your artwork!

I used textures and photographs to render the image.

That's incredible!

This is one of the reasons why I absolutely love websites like deviantart. I keep finding true gems like this one when I least expect it and it always makes my day.

I love what you've done here, it looks great, and I love her character design as well.

I did the same thing, but in color with another character (Nevhna) not so long ago, if you're interested :)

Ok.. I've seen this pic before... but never saw the link to :devpixaloo:'s gallery.... and now, after reading the comments and tracking down that vid of his / her process.. I'm just in awe!!

Your effort with that technique really paid off! This is just too cool not to try myself!!!

crit: because of the lighting on her shoulder.. the cast shadow from the nose seems out of place, sorta just making that area seem enflamed or bruised / bloodied.. Everything else looks awesome!

I love how you can make your characters look so serious and sexy but ever so subtle. Many respects to your skills!

Est-ce que vous allez écrire une histoire pour elle?
zazB's avatar
J'en ai une, depuis longtemps, mais j'ai aussi beaucoup d'autres projets alors je ne sais pas si je vais l'écrire/dessiner un jour.
Pas besoin de me vouvoyer :)

Heille, ça donne vraiment cool, faudra que j'essaye ça... même si ça a l'air tough...
zazB's avatar
C'est pas vraiment dur... juste un peu long, surtout trouver des photos haute resolution :)

Ouais, je suppose... mais c'est tentant d'essayer :)

Great flow to the design, and I like the color scheme. She looks very unique!

Maybe this Marine character of yours needs a brother.
