Defenders 006: Windrunner
November 9, 2011
Well, that didn’t take long. I’ve already managed to fall behind on this little exercise, but here is Defender 006 nonetheless. Windrunner is another one of those tricky too-human looking heroes (like Drow), so again I am relying heavily on the colour to provide identity. Perhaps too much so.
I didn’t really want to fall into the trap of colouring the portraits exactly like their respective heroes, but this was just too natural to pass up. I really like the interplay between the orange and reds of autumn with the greens of summer/spring, which not only matches WR’s model, but also her lore as the ranger archetype.
Here she is, in all her gingery glory.
