Fighter Maiden by Colourbrand Fighter Maiden by Colourbrand
"...they got her; a good shot in the drive units and all her systems failed.

Despite the gravity resist, the ship fell and smashed itself into the ground, fuel cells now burning their contents with neon-green fire.

She will admit that they got her, there was no denying that.

However, she was no quitter; she stumbled from her wreck and checked her weapon as her friends flew overhead into battle.

Down, she maybe; out - no way...."

-------

This was a very old pic I once posted on Flickr ages ago - and it was an attempt at 'glamour art'. However, after some rather disturbing comments and complaints, I took it down. It was not that I was scared or insulted, I just felt uncomfortable and it was not 'me'.

Years later, I found it and decided to make it more interesting; gone was the costume, in place was again a test into textures, and I added a backdrop to make the overall picture more interesting.

Will admit, love the crashed ship and the upturned rocks. That took ages to do because I had no idea where to go - thank the digital medium for its flexibility!

I also wanted to explore more people ideas, do something different, and do more honours to past old sci-fi I grew up loving yonks ago :)

Comments and feedback, most welcome!

Enjoy! :D

I would but I wanted to make them minimal - but next time, will remember :)

Thanks for that feedback :D

As for 'boob armour' - think cup, or codpiece ;)

I like this lady's looks and her grim determination.Clap  Maybe she could get into a sniping match with a downed alien fighter. Wink/Razz

Looks quite good so far!

In my personal opinion this "pin-up pose" is way to overused. Maybe you could make the character more action like, a few bruises, a bit blood and a fighter pose or something like that.

Looking forward to the next one! I salute you!

Never quit! Never surrender! She looks great and sleek and dangerous, and I really like the overall idea here, downed fighter, pilot still in the fight, comrades overhead, tells a story sir! Excellent!

Yeah keep fighting! That's the spirit.

Love the way her body curves, and again the textures. I must say, these new textures you're trying out is definitely for keeps. It's doing wonders.

It's very cool! Really fun textures and a great 'pin-up' style pose, but showing character instead of skin. :nod: I like the ships too!
