The year is 2067 and the world is now one nation. A new world order was made and the borders of all countries were lifted. The world has one government, one currency and one language. A small number of humans has evolved into super humans and are being oppressed by the World’s Government.
Born last of two children to a scientist named Lucifer Payne and his wife Sandy Payne, Sasha Payne was raised to be a revolutionary scientist. She was home schooled with her older sister Sarah Payne. Sarah was the smarter of the two and she was more skilled which caused their parents to pay the older sister more attention. Sasha started to rebel to draw the attention of her parents but that only got her in trouble. She was eight years old at the time and they lived in Flatbush Brooklyn.
Sasha’s Father, Lucifer, worked for the WOREX (World Executive) as a researcher of genetic traits found in super humans. Lucifer and his co-workers keep people captive to experiment on. One day he made a breakthrough in creating a new gene that gives the carrier the ability to regulate adrenaline secretion at will at an almost limitless amount. This ability causes a person to perceive time slower than the normal person, almost to a crawl, the power to transcend time. He decided to hide this discovery from his superior and co-workers so that he can further work on this experiment. He manages to take all the information regarding the experiment and stash it in his personal home laboratory. At his work place he marked the experiment as failed and no one questioned his judgement.
Lucifer lacked test subjects to perfect his experiment on so he decided to use his own family. Sasha, Sandy and Sarah were all used as his test subjects at their own free will. He even used himself as a test subject. Fortunately, the experiments were successful but the bad part is that the World Government knew about the whole thing all along. They were waiting for the experiment to be a success before repossessing the genetic experiments.
WOREX sent a small army to capture one of the four and murder the rest. Lucifer tried to prevent this by playing as a decoy while allowing his wife and children to escape. With his new-found powers, he managed to ward off most of the soldiers before being shot by a sniper from across the street. Before he died he managed to burn all the documents concerning his experiments.
While trying to escape Sandy was intersected by 3 soldiers. She tries to ward them off by using her new power but was unsuccessful because she was also shot by the same sniper. That sniper was about to shoot one of the two sisters but chose not to and let them escape because he was restricted by his moral.
Sasha and Sarah had no family members they could call on because Sandy’s family disowned her at a young age and Lucifer was an orphan. The sisters were forced to live in the abandoned subway of New York City with the risk of being raped or killed very high. There were so many homeless and dying people down there that is smells of rotting corpses and accumulating human feces. The managed to survive by eating food out of restaurant’s garbage all over the city. They lived like this for two year. During that time, the both awakened their ability to slow down time and the used this to their advantage but pickpocketing pedestrians. The happened to pick the pocket of WOREX Agent and they were caught by him in a short amount of time. He offered to get them off the streets if they joined the WOREX ARMY. There was a program that was made to take homeless children off the street and turn them into soldiers to reduce the homelessness rate that plagued the world.
The sister’s agreed unknowing of the fact that this particular person was the same person who shot their parents. The went to military school for seven years where they both graduated at top of their class. They soon became officials in the military and were given high ranking positions to be kept under surveillance by the WOREX. Sasha happened to be place in the ICU (Information Consolidation Unit) where she has access most of the government’s classified information. She found out that the WOREX is responsible for her parents’ death. She attempted to ally with her sister in over throwing the government by Sarah, thinking rationally, decided that it’s best if they both left that in the past because it would destroy the life they worked hard to stabilize.
Sasha then decided to go out and find other people willing to help her destroy the worlds tyrannical WOREX.
This was a very fun project an I had the time of my life making my character. I started out with sketches of a character I already had in mind. She had to be strong but gentle, intimidating but beautiful. She had to have unique hair and eyes so I made them red. He outfit was supposed to be something relating to the principles an elements of design so I made her pants big and green to complement her hair. She’s a very mysterious character so I made some of her clothes black and grey. The dog tag she wears around her neck is supposed to represent her power to slow time for her alone.
I can see my growth as an artist in terms of proportions when it come down to drawing humans. I learned a lot about how someone looks in the round rather than relief.
I studied on how to draw mouths to help me with the facial expressions.
This project is preparing me for 3D design. I will have to use this skill in my digital program to create realistic characters and objects.
Structure wise, I went for a very realistic proportion. The arms are slightly longer than an actual person but that was for the sake of movement. While making the marionette I didn’t really think about what it will represent but as it progressed I found it becoming more like some type of Jester or clown with goat legs.
I go for the clown look, the colors I used works in my favor. The modular design comes from my use of a number of parallelograms. The colors are complimentary. I chose these with the intention of implementing A type of principle or element of design in my marionette.
Modular design made it possible for me to create the puppet in a whole. I used the shapes to create a box then used the same shapes to create arms and legs.
The creative process was very frustrating because personally I don’t like working with this type of art. It’s far too fragile and it doesn’t allow me to have creative freedom as I would hope. It limited me to paper when I wanted to use wire and other things I found.
The characters body is more 3D than the limbs which makes the project to me look silly. It got the Job done and it made the right movements where I wanted it to so in the end the differences in the shapes worked out for the best.
I didn’t use any pattern in it’s creation because it demanded more fine motor skills than I have so I avoided messing up the progress I had made at the time. If I have messed with the character It would have fell apart multiple times.
There is balance in the character in it’s shape and construction based on the even sides and shapes used on both sides of the puppet. the proportion was close to human and it may be beyond human, humanoid at best.
These are my initial designs for the puppet, Click image for enlarged version.
