More Rev-0!

More work on Lilly, got to a point where I find the armor sort of acceptable.  At this point I threw some different tones down to start some color tests before I go in and tweak/fix some things, like her feet, leggings hands face etc...
Thank you for your time,

Rev-0 Update!

Some of you might be keeping up with my Project Revenant designs so here's another update!
   Lilly, code name Rev-Zero, has undergone a few redesigns that I hope you all will love based on an echoing memory an idol of mine, Rodney Allen, who told me never to stop pushing myself.  I revisit personal projects and apply new knowledge and experience to them, giving them more character.  However, one must know the limits of his or her ability at the time and move on before wasting too much time.  This proves to be a difficult task for many growing artists, I'm not exception.  Some advice, I'm sure some of you have heard before, If you're getting too frustrated with a piece, pickup and move onto something else and never be afraid to start over.  The difference between a good and great artist is repetition... Study, reference, apply and repeat such is the endless life of every artist.  An artist that suffers from arrogance binds themselves from growth.  Look up and realize that no matter where or who you are you can learn something from the people around you.  Live, experience, absorb, grow and let it show through your art.
Ok... So that might be a bit deep for 1:30am, but it's the message I got from knowing Rodney... I'm pretty sure he said something along the lines like, "Yeah man, I wish I could just eat people's brains for their artistic experience... but I can't." lol. 

Here's an update to Project Revenant, some gear redesign, facial redesign and stuff... Enjoy!
