Havoc by BlackTalonArts Havoc by BlackTalonArts
They call me a menace
They say that I’m cursed
But somethin' about me is makin' 'em jealous
So listen and learn
I herd 'em like cattle
'Cause I’m surrounded by cowards
And I don’t give a fuck when I walk into battle
And thats why I got all the power
I’m where you wanna be
Ain’t no one ahead of me
All of my enemies made a decision
It's better to follow me
I make no apologies
All of my sins I would repeat and I repeat
'Cause I'mma be me 'til the death of me, oh yeah  ~Skylar Grey...Wreak Havoc



Pretty much says it all.  Ready to lay it down and put the metal to the ground. The future is here and it's grim.  There's a reason I walk these tracks alone.

DS/Zbrush/Photoshop
Character in progress and have her name but will reveal later once her sculpt and texture is done.
In the mean time, texture by Kaylesses :heart:

Love the strength the character shows. She really is a "don't mess with me" unapologetic one. Wonderful lighting as usual and a very nice post-apocalyptic surrounding.

Wonderful scene and stunning character, Mel! There is no need to mention traditional highest quality and amazing attention to detail. It’s all there. What I like most is the girl. She’s got the looks, but will put up a decent fight if needed, or wreak havoc, and you have shown that very well. Bravo!

Great image, Mel!  Looks like you are having a lot of fun with the post-apocalyptic theme at the moment.

I think I'm going to really like this character if you continue to develop and use her.  She seems a little "softer" than some of your other recent characters, still lean, strong willed, ready to fight, but somehow she gives off a more feminine vibe (for lack of a better term).  But compared to Talon I guess anybody would seem a little "soft".

The dirt on her skin and clothing is excellent.  You know I'm always curious about technique: is the dirt a preset that came with these clother and skin, something you added to the materials yourself, an LIE or geometry shell add-on, or did you add it in post?

There are other details here I really like, too, like the pose, the goggles, the elbow pads, even the braid. I find the braid particularly interesting because it looks like it was designed for a Queen Elsa type of girl, but you've made it convincing on a character who is pretty much the opposite of that.  The debris at her feet is also a nice touch, either she's been standing there for awhile, or maybe she realizes that somebody else had been standing there (and she's not happy about it).

Thanks Theo!!  Yea, she's fun just got to finish her up when I have time.  Hopefully I do her justice. :)  I'll definitely keep developing her.  Like you said, going for a bit of a softer face and body but still lots of strength.  More your real girl feel.

Some of the skin dirt is from a geoshell from the character from Kaylesses....the dirt on clothing I did in postwork.  Had to do quite a bit of zbrush work (besides character) on the clothing and getting the hair shoved behind the goggles.  Always enjoy that part the most. lol 

You know in the post apocalyptic world, no one seems to bother cleaning up after themselves. *sighs*  :D

and make all the ideas you have for her. :D

Probably won't be for a while as I would also like to do either some props/clothing for her.  We will see.  :D

That sounds very exciting! Going all out with the character's customisation,
making some things that are unique to her. I'm really looking forward seeing
what you come up with! :D

I am wanting to do that too for a couple of my characters, but I don't see it
happening until next year when the weather starts cooling down. :( More time
for planning is a good thing, but really, I just want to dive in!

lol We can only hope! There are too many things on the table, too many ideas, too
much that we want do or learn and not enough hours in the day. Right now, I'm
despairing that I will get anything done now Summer is making its unpleasant
presence know and I'm sweltering in the heat and humidity. Summer is always the
worst time of year, I get nothing done and then I spend the rest of the year
scrambling to make up for lost time. This year has been harder than most because I
haven't had a good year at all, and just as I'm starting to find my footing again and
get some work done, it's time to stop again! *shakes fist angrily*
