Cyborg Waifu: Gal Epsilon
And now I’m doing the same thing except with inspiration from other characters in the same family.
If you’re reasonably well-versed in the subject of Sonic Adventure 1, you’l pick up on a number of thoughtful details that would only make sense for people who know the game really well.
One thing I had thought about off and on was how cool it would be to have a bit more unique flavor in each design for these characters. You can see a lot of similarity between Epsilon and Gamma, though Epsilon is a heavier robot, owing largely to the original concept of Epsilon hiding away in the base of a mountain. If a robot is going to hide under a mountain, it makes sense for the robot to be heavier and suited for moving a lot of rock and earth. I added some crash bars onto the design and based the exhaust on the kind of exhaust you might find on a diesel pickup truck. I preserved the original missile launchers, but added hands on because reasons.
There are a few design cues I borrowed from Chun-Li of Street Fighter fame simply because I thought they would be fun.
I had a lot of fun with the design work on this one, as well as just continuing to develop my style in the direction I’m going right now. The design provided more insights into the way I work best, as well as things I can improve upon in my process as I continue working.
Thanks as always for supporting my work.
