I've decided to work on an entry for this contest. It sounds like a super fun opportunity to explore some new technology and reinvigorate me to create a fun new character!
I've been working on a concept over the past few days (must improve my 2D!) and am wanting to take the character in this direction:
A fierce brawler-type character with an outfit consisting of some time-period mix of medieval armor and... 40s fashion? I want to give her an androgynous appearance, a slightly bulky physique (think Nadine from Uncharted 4... ugh she's awesome...) with feminine but a bit rough facial features and short hair.
Things definitely may change during the ZBrush phase depending on how things are looking!
I think I'll be spending the weekend exploring Character Creator and see what kind of base mesh I can get out of it, then move on to ZBrush where I think I will be live streaming my process.
Thanks for looking.
