I was going to save this for later, but then I realized there's not much left that I really want to post here.

This is a character I created for an original concept theme day at C2F. I wrote up a huge bio, which you can find at http://www.site.uottawa.ca/~zek/art/eve.html. (How do I make this a link?) I won't post it here, to save myself the wrath of Max. :)

This was originally Audrey Tautou's head (and neck) on Yasmeen Ghauri's body. Yasmeen was wearing a pink swimsuit thingy and clear plastic boots that I had to get rid of. I cleaned up the skin a bit, then desaturated to recolour it. I redid the original hair in similar style but totally different colours. The costuming is entirely from scratch, including the fishnets, boots, belt and tank top. I was going for a sort of mismatched punk look... like she randomly grabbed a bunch of clothing matching a particular aesthetic without any real care as to whether it fit together. The background was done in Bryce and smudged to match the painted look. The catwalk texture is mine, the bricks aren't. Finally, the lighting was done using a mask.

This is (by far) my favourite of my own manips.

 Re: Original Concept: Eve
Thank you, guys.

Honestly, I do think this is my best. It's certainly my favourite of mine, as I've said. I think it being a pic of my own character brings it up just that little notch in my estimation.

DD: A lot of work? You could say that. From conception to finish, this took about 50 hrs of work spread over some three weeks. Actual manipping time was probably 40+ hrs. Some 15 hrs of that was working on little details and playing around with different versions of things like her belt and bracer. Each went through a half-dozen versions.

BB: Thanks. With a painted style for my actual costume work, I basically have to do something similar for the backgrounds. The costume, skin and background all need to be done in a similar style, whether you go for photorealism, the airbrushed look, or something more unique. That was something I was told by the DCG artist StrangeFish, and was probably the single most important bit of advice I've ever received.

WH: Thank you, thank you, thank you. That's really cool to hear, man. Lighting was something it took me forever to find a way to do. I finally figured out a way with my Emma Frost pic, and this was the next one I did. It was very specifically an exercise in dynamic lighting. (Which took another couple of hours of that huge total I cited above.) And dammit, you're right! I completely forgot that I need to keep bugging Mr. Bum to get his version of the character out. Thanks for the reminder!

DD, sometimes you scare me.

B, I gotta say this is right up there as one of your best. That painty Impressionist style on (all of) your backgrounds is really unique, I like it a lot. And the glowing knife as a light source is nicely rendered.
