Isi namid. this is the pink haired girl minus pink hair. i felt she was more mysterious with platinum like in the original sculpt. maybe she dyes her hair different colors later on. went for a rough painted look on the render. i like where its going and will probably dabble with a similar vibe for 2 more characters in this story. the painted lines on her are tentative until i can think of some neater designs to be painted on her skin.
im really looking forward to Burning Man. aug 29th-september 5th. I will be camping with a group called the galactic jedis and the pyronauts. i thought that was kind of funny seeing how ive been working on a fire spinning fighter for the past month.
cant wait to see half naked babes runnin around lookin like this one :D

Isi Namid

This is infact the same character from the previous post. Her tentative name means deer star dancer. visually i was going for a burning man mononoke vibe. her hair is going through some growing pains. thinking about having her wear some hair extensions or they might be natural dreads branching off of possible a faux hawk.
The outfit design is basically final. I will only make minor changes to it NEED TO MOVE ON lol. As you can see I did several different quick sketches of this character befoer coming to the final design at the top of the pages.
Also I would like to note that the masks were heavily inspired by Francisco Ruiz Velasco . I saw some sketches of mask concepts he did for hell boy 2 recently. I watched the movie JUST to see those masks... They were each in ONE scene for about 2 seconds... FAR in the background. I was very saddened by this and chose to create a clan of masked fire spinners to accompany Isi. The 3 other masks are roughs of what im thinking for em.

Isi Namid trains her fire spinning skills to mask her fighter spirit. Martial arts training is banned so she learns fighting in dance form. Her abilities have no connection to magic initially.... but she soon finds that her haunting past has the ability to evolve her technique into something else entirely. :P
