Ok, so i changed my mind. I love my Ebony Black story, but its very nature is to be that of a storybook and not an animated television show, so it just wasn't working. She needed to be more detailed than i was allowing myself and i went away from what i wanted to do.
So, back to Omega, who is still my favourite. Who doesn't love a main character who is thrown off her planet because she thinks men are icky? and then proceeds to land in a city that is holding several dozen townsfolk who are not as they seem (alien refugees)? and the cows are blocky and are well... I need to illustrate them for you. Words fail me.
There. And Omega is a tactical and scientifical and physical genius. Well, shes just a genius. And she has a twin brother named Alpha, who is forced to live in a jail cell because he was born second and now that Omega is gone, is reveling in the glory of being the NUMBER ONE SON!!!!! So he's evil. Even though it kinda should be the other way around... OH WELL.
And Omega's belt is the symbol for Omega, which, oddly enough, is similar to the shape of a horseshoe. It has special powers that even i don't know about.
The other characters in my model pack are, as follows:
*Bill Minor, Outlawed Post Office Worker; afraid of guns; Human
*Alpha "Al" Aries, heir apparent to the Throne of War; Alien
*Brian O'Brien, saloon owner/local drunk (its just juice, i swear!!!); Alien Refugee. Resembles a mutated goldfish crossed with a monkey.... or something odd like that. (both his human-suit and alien versions will be drawn)
*Herd of Cows, made of milky goodness! Look don, Quadrepeds!!! They're not really anything special... or are they? they enjoyed a previous life being space manatees and their milk powered the milky way. YES THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE POWER AS WE KNOW IT.
And finally, Omega herself.
She is the local sheriff, considered a "loose" woman because she wears pants and is generally looked down upon by all members of the community as she is rude, obnoxious and snooty, all at the same time. They couldn't really help choosing her as sheriff... maybe that weird helmet she had everyone wear has something to do with it...
She also has an alien version. Which has tentacles, because she is a squid. And i will draw her "true" form, where she is fully a cute squid!!!!!
The squid form is the weakest of her forms, weaker even than her fully human form. She only reverts to the squid state if she's badly injured or sick. and she's probably a cute teal green with purple square spots XD
...I really want to draw the cute squid now.
AND BRIAN O'BRIAN HAS TO BE A GIANT JELLYFISH!!!!!!
HA HA HAH AH
A present for you, Brian. Not Brian O'Brien, who is depicted as the giant jellyfish monster of doom.
I'm feeling REDIKULOUSSSS!!!!

Another try at ebony. She has my favourite eyes thus far. Still owrking on making her body as interesting as her face, and im trying to simplify her shapes so when i have to put her in to flash, she actually works.
Posted the sketches on conceptart.org , so hopefully i'll get some crits from them before i have to hand in sketches on tuesday... well, not really hand in, but show don so he can crit me.

So my animation teacher posted our next project, which is our final design/posing assighnment.
I'm SO EXCITED!!!
So much so that i have started this project and neglected to work on the animation thats due next thursday. Whoopsies.
Oh well. Still working on how i want ebony to look. my fav is the furthest one on the left. I like her proportions.
Ebony is supposed to be 12 or 13 years old. And she has to be innocently beautiful/pretty.
