Maewenn

Also called "Battle-Mage Phoenix", she is both a Sorceress and a Warrior. This new character was primarily imagined as a new skin for Mevenn, but ended up being a completely new character. I've used Akeytsu and Mevenn rig as a blocking base for concepts alongside PS for conceptarts, ZBrush for sculpt using mostly a SubD process so really intensively the ZModeler (it was a nice discovery btw ! I think more about ZBrush like a complete modeling tool now). The rig was also a real pleasure to explore (thanks to Akeytsu), and has also forced me to experiment more on clothing & face controls. I may create more anims with this character in the upcoming months (it's just so coooool to manipulate in Akeytsu ♥)

You can get the character from my store here : https://www.artstation.com/vexod14/store

Original skin. I called it "Phoenix", since it's the first visual that comes out from her sister ; Mevenn from Star Wars-Redemption (some shapes are really close, and they share a very similar rig in Akeytsu =))

LittleFairy, she's you little companion, with less joints to animate and no legs : just make her fly !

HighPoly Sculpt of Maewenn - Weapons, since I want to be able to animate many different situations for her, I've made several weapons. I may add a shield one day =)

Final concept, most parts of the final sculpt comes from this one and a few are based on others, including sketches I didn't published yet (shapes ideas, too rough to be shown ^^")

This skin has some inspirations from "Vyr" stuff from Diablo 3 (I liked the White/Purple/Violet mix they did, here I tried to bring something as cool on Maewenn =) Blizzard is always an excellent source of inspiration to me !)

This one was very inspired by a game that's deep in my heart : Sacred (by Ascaron). I wanted to make a fan art of the VampireLady tons of times, it's still not one but...well, it's so freakin' cool !

An overview of the scene/rig (sorry for my lazy voice, I guess I was a bit tired ^^"). This video explains the how and why of this rig so you can make a good use of it !

some variants of the walk with each skin =)
