[IMAGE HEAVY] Character & Character Art Thread
Since art will be an important focus of the mod, I would like to showcase the art produced for each character here, see what everyone thinks, get some feedback, start runaway waifu wars. This thread should also serve as a place where you can ask questions about the characters instead of the world (I'm a sucker for decentralized and compartmentalized design).



Hayano Ibaraki, a naval officer who got promoted to Lieutenant Commander and now does command duties as opposed to flying.




Ayako's your average fresh navy pilot, green as a salad experience wise but ready for any mission.



Ivessa is a cocky and laid back assault/bomber pilot who's good at blowing stuff up, but has the tactical sense of a JDAM bomb. The word "dumb-fire" comes to mind...

[DENEBIM MOMENTARILY TAKEN DOWN FOR RE-CONSTRUCTION]


More art is underway, stay tuned.

Re: [IMAGE HEAVY] Character & Character Art Thread


Is the Order a Rabbit? Well it sure is here, because I finally got around to quickly drawing up this bunny girl character, now officially a pilot of the Denebim Navy. The flight suit alone already shows a major difference in culture compared to those of the humans.

She goes by the campaign "Horizon", ranking as Second Lieutenant of the 6th Full Moon Squadron. Specializes in Interceptor missions.

Are these meant to be used as statics pics? Are you planning to implement animations?

Re: [IMAGE HEAVY] Character & Character Art Thread
I've been experimenting with Live2D for the sake of animation, so, while not an absolute guarantee, you can reasonably expect see animated art in the mod.

That does not include Head.ANIs, those are always animated. (Big thank you to Spoon for helping me way back on figuring out how to use Emofuri properly)

The art in this thread is merely for the purpose of presentation.

Here comes another one. Izumi Phobos. By now you probably have noticed the coloration of the pilot suits that isn't completely random. Color denotes the pilot's usual role in their squadron.

Two for the price of one! Meet the bomber crew of Thunderbolt 1, Junko Igarashi (left) and on the right, a girl whose name is as of yet a mystery and I totally just didn't forget to actually write their names down in the design doc again  :P

Bomber crew always wear a black-white pilot suit, but as probably noticeable, the designs are still quite more complicated. Bomber pilots and their Guidance/Munitions Operators wear a more specialised suit built for longer flights, which can often last up to several days, depending on mission, target and piloted craft. There are also a lot more telemetry devices stuffed in there, primarily for monitoring the vital signs but also their equipment status.

They also come with extra padding and internal temperature control for whoever is wearing it, all of which can be controlled by an arm mounted touchpad.

Re: [IMAGE HEAVY] Character & Character Art Thread
Right, here's a big one for you.

I've been working for a solid 11 hours on the first full scene image of the planned VN segments. Normally I wouldn't share those, but since this is the first one I've thrown together (and the first drawing of such a scale in a good while) I'm sharing it here with you.

Just, uh... beware. It's not the work-safest thing to look at.  :P

Spoiler:
It's a locker room scene with Ayako and Ivessa.

Re: [IMAGE HEAVY] Character & Character Art Thread


Wow this thread sure is dusty.

Let me bring it back to life with a bit of Maribel Histera, your number 2 on Nimbus wing. Coming from a rich family, she wants to bring honor to her parents in the form of military prowess, but is prone to jealousy and brash remarks. Prime teasing material.

After an unnecessarily long art hiatus, I've returned with a gift. A gift made of elves.

Yeah, I'm bringing the space elves back.
