Just try to picture a confident, calculated and beautiful female assassin. It's a strange mix.
It's not like she has no problems, she's just a total ace at what she does best.
She's the kind of chick that would choke a guy to the point of unconsciousness, tie him to the floor, take off her shoes, and poor a bottle of wine and listen to music until he wakes up-- at which point, she'd gladly cut his life short.
Now I think would be the ideal time to tell you I am brainstorming/doing designs for a comic series right now.. pretty awesome thoughts so far, I'm thinking along the lines of the main character being either a company/freelance assassin... and it's a she. I'm thinking of names, and drawing designs, but I know it will be an intergalactic story that is at times darkly comedic (ala Dexter). I'm thinking of the expanse of the galaxy and if there should be a variety of other species living along side humans, or just humans.
Juliana Emerson has a penthouse with an amazing view over Manifest City, of the 'space state' Manifest, in orbit of Earth.
I'm going to be asking AvP Galaxy for different opinions, and certain members will make cameo appearances in it, but with different names.
Further character analysis:
It can really be anything. The strange thing about this woman is that she enjoys the things that anybody would, music, money, sex, alcohol... She isn't exactly immune to temptation.
I haven't made any official designs but from the moment of imagined her, she had a headset and long ponytail. For hair color, I'm thinking either orange or brunette.
...It's a dirty, dark, glamorously twistedly sci-fi story.
Be sure to send feedback, uh, back, and I'll be sure to keep you posted (I'm currently doing concept sketches- I've done one semi-realistic version of her face, and a couple more animated facial experimentation that are pretty comedic
Now, that was just the initial briefing, and all of it is subject to change. The title "Fatale" is just a temporary title until I have actually named it
.Old Pre-Wacom Concept Art:
This is a semi-realistic look at her face. In the actual versions, she won't be this detailed, but this gives an interesting look at her emotions and a detailed depiction of her headset."Every Girl Deserves to Go To A Ball!"
To be honest.. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I started drawing this one
It evolved into a scenario in which she is dressed up in fancy clothing, and she loses her temper at something, thus extending her headset.
As I stated to Drago-Morph: "This is type of woman, that if she failed an assassination, she would head to the nearest bar/club, and drink herself half to death, and talk the ear off of the guy next to her, while twirling her hair and squeezing his cheeks"
. This picture shows her after a rough/failed assassination, preparing to get all liquored up. Casual clothes were a no-brainer."Honey, I'm-"
(My Personal Favorite)
I'm still working on plot details as to who the man in the doorway is, but that wasn't my focus while drawing. I just wanted a sort of "caught in the act" expression for the concept art page, and this, I find, emulates that with greatness. I also find it to be very darkly comedic, what with the blood-soaked arm and knife.. In hind sight, this really is more of a drawing than concept sketch.
