"Do you really think you can just walk back in here and expect us all to cooperate after what you did?"
- Zinni to Aroska Tarbic
So this is the last of a series of portraits of the characters from my sci fi story. I'm sure I'll do more someday, but right now I've got a ton of schoolwork to focus on as the term is winding down so I figured this would be a good stopping point.
This is Intelligence Officer Zinnarana "Zinni" Vax. People often can't tell just by looking at her what a little fireball she is. She's a lot smaller than my other characters but what she lacks in size she makes up for in brains. As an Intelligence Officer, her primary role is manning the computer, but she's also plenty capable of getting down and dirty with the rest of the team and shooting and blowing stuff up (that's her favorite part
). I've always based her personality on a sort of Penelope-Garcia-from-Criminal-Minds
. So she's sort of spunky and sarcastic but is also very good at what she does.
I have to laugh when I get to thinking about it... when I first came up with the concept of Zinni, everything was pretty much the same except she was a guy. And Zinni was just his name and wasn't short for anything. I can't remember when or why I changed it to a female
The name is based off of my cat Jenny, which I often pronounce "Dzinny" when I'm loving on her.
The hair was a tad tricky and I probably should have spent a little more time on it, what with all the highlights and all. But I think it turned out okay in the end. I ended up changing the shape of her lips and nose a bit, and then I changed the lips again
because it ended up looking like someone I went to high school with and it creeped me out
Done over 2 days, probably about 4 hours, in GIMP with my Wacom tablet.WIPs
