... these two here are two more characters I did for DC Online... these weren't meant to be used 'as is', but the player could pick and choose different elements for their character customization. It's much easier (and much more fun as well) to design a whole character instead of designing "50 different boots, 50 different torsos, 50 different helmets" etc etc... I've done that before, and for me, it's much much easier to design a whole cohesive character that can later be broken up into pieces (less brain-draining as well)
Anyway, these two were pretty fun because we had designed SOOOO MANY super-hero type characters, that it was nice to be able to do something a bit more Sword and Sorcery... at this point, I was trying to focus much more on giving characters distinct silhouettes and 'cuts' in their accessories...
For the Evil-Sorcerer dude, I wanted very much to keep an Egyptian feel with the curves and sun motifs, but also some chaos with the cape and necrotic skin.
... the girl was very much influenced by a crow and a 'hard angle' armor with semi-organic elements ... I don't know if that cape would be too much of a pain in the butt to make in 3D (with all the feathers), but I thought it made for a pretty aggressive look, so why not throw it in?
