Defenders 003: Drow Ranger

November 6, 2011


This one was a bit tricky.  She’s hooded, so my first couple attempts just kind of looked like blobs.  It took a few passes to really pick out the important details and get something that was actually recognizable.

Not only was I struggling to keep her from turning into an amorphous mass, but I needed to find a way to distinguish her from similar heroes.  As one of the more human-looking heroes,  Drow doesn’t really have any really distinguishing features (like Furion’s horns or Sven’s helmet).  I tried to pick a colour palette (which I’m calling evil-blue) that would set her apart from similar heroes like Windrunner.

Mission accomplished?  Sound off in the comments and let me know how she looks, and which hero I should do next.

Some people were asking for wallpapers, so here she is at 1920 x 1080.  Feel free to mock it up for other sizes.

    Completely encompasses the feel of Trax, however in light of your recent arrivals in the defender series I must ask something, why were her facial tattoos/makeup discarded from the image? While you’ve perfectly encompassed the feel of Trax, she feels somewhat different, her featureless face leaves much to the imagination, but at the same time, this may have been an intentional design decision. Overall fantastic job.

    Back when I started, I was trying to be much more sparing with the detail… over time I’ve been slowly adding more and more detail to each picture.

    Compare Trax with Sven or Furion (which came out about the same time). Now compare Trax with QoP (which is much more recent.

    I’m not really sure why this has been happening though… just has.
