Adamantine Corruption by ZTakashi Adamantine Corruption by ZTakashi
The product of the longest procrastination run I've ever seen through.... dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I can go to sleep knowing I did something very productive today (eat THAT, American educational system!)

This is another original character I created, undergoing a partial transformation involving the materialization of a powerful biomechanical gauntlet on her right arm. My overall inspiration for this character's look was taken from Samus Aran from the Metroid franchise, and I wanted to give the transformation itself somewhat of a "corruption" feel to it, kind of like a living weapon partly taking over her body.

Still needs some cleanup (as usual); I did the linart and solid colors completely in Flash because I absolutely LOOOOVE vectors and I haven't had the opportunity to use Illustrator yet, but all the shading, backgrounds, and special effects are total Photoshop products.




Software: Flash CS3, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Tablet <3
Time: like all friggin' day, aside from other projects.....

whoa! this looks totally amazing!! it's funny, when i first saw this i immediately thought of Riku from FF, but it's probably just cuz of the hair ^^ anyways it looks really great, i love the lightning streaks everywhere.. and there's something about her eye[s] that i really like :]

Haha thanks, y'know? Yeah, now that I think about it, the hair is a lot like Rikku's, y'know? Thanks for the comment, y'kno---(smashes in face with sledgehammer)

(That's the one thing I absolutely hated about Rikku in the game, though ^___^; )
