“Solari" is a character design that I created through the Gnomon School in Spring 2014. Solari was designed and implemented over a ten week period using ZBrush and Photoshop.
Here is the original character description that enabled her creation:
"Solari is a female hybrid; hybrid being a blend between an alien and a robot. She is a pilot of a spacecraft that is suggestive of “Slave I” from the Star Wars universe. She sometimes flies with a co-pilot, but prefers to work alone, flying from one end of the galaxy to another transporting cargo of various sorts.
"She has a lean and athletic body structure, but most of her body is wrapped in protective gear and technology. Her protection is a blend of body armor and clothing that protects her from harsh weather she encounters when visiting remote planets. She is frequently seen wearing digital googles which provide her with navigational details, radio frequencies and various data points regarding her internal components. She cannot hear naturally, and is thus reliant upon custom earphones that translate analog signals into a digital equivalent.
"On her back is a backpack that contains numerous technical manuals and electronics equipment that aid in the repair of her spacecraft and person. Several antennas protrude from her pack, all of which are retractable. Furthermore, the pack is awash with various LEDs and electronic surveillance equipment that she uses to stay in contact with suppliers and merchants spread across the galaxy.
"She sometimes carries a weapon for defense, but her physiological makeup combined with a unique ability to control her surroundings through her mind provides her with tremendous power. However, because of her unique childhood, she lives primarily in the shadows and at peace with those who surround her."
