The Sketch to Colour

This is the sketch I think I will go with for this exercise. I like the way she has near-human eyes, and that it is her battle helmet which introduces the bug-eye look of the real-world insect. I think the way the segmented body works to accentuate her feminine quality works and the way the armour plating and detailing flesh out the artistic ego of their culture is what I was after.

Now, onto the Wacom tablet I go...



If I were to continue the same idea in more depth, I would probably see the elements becoming more stylised, the shoulder plates would grow, the weapons would have more flare and her body segments would have more dynamics about them. We will see if I have time to bring some of this thinking into the digital version...
