With the “Samurai Girl With Bow” project I wanted to convey a primitive/dystopian dragon lady look, an elite assassin trained from birth to be deadly accurate with her bow.

Who can forget Elric of Melniboné the a fictional anti-hero created by Michael Moorcock, and the character the sickly 428th Emperor of Melniboné and his chaotic-evil Sword Stormbringer? As with “Kali” I started from scratch as I do with all my characters. Before I even touched a computer, I began creating detailed study drawings of Elric’s anatomy in order to best capture the essence of the sickly sinewy Albino Emperor. Both the rigging and the materials treatment provided a real challenge. For the straps, I wanted to keep a saturated yellowish reflective metal material yet still allow the runes on the straps to be noticeable. The best solution for this was to use a V-Ray wrapped shellack material treatment. It’s funny, because you don’t really think/care about what things are actually made of until you have to consider how they will actually appear in more realistic applications.

With the “Samurai Girl With Bow” project I wanted to convey a primitive/dystopian dragon lady look, an elite assassin trained from birth to be deadly accurate with her bow. “Samurai Girl With Bow” was a project that involve a considerable amount of work in Z-Brush in sculpting and creating the textures. The ominous thunderhead sky in the animation was done using E-on’s Vue software.

One of my primary objectives for embarking on this project was to become more proficient with the 3ds MAX CAT Studio animation tools, apply my skills in environmental/set design and get some exposure using the FumeFX fluid dynamics engine. I started from scratch as I do with all my characters. Before I even touched a computer, I began creating detailed study drawings of Kali’s anatomy in order to best capture the essence of the exotic statuesque feeling I wanted to convey. The final stage of the modeling process involved the construction of the set, and pinning down the look of the FumeFX flames of the braziers.
