Audacious Accomplishment ideas - Clarice 1 by Zephyri Audacious Accomplishment ideas - Clarice 1 by Zephyri
Working on ideas for my big illustration assignment as part of the Oatley Academy - we were asked to take scenes from a film and transpose the characters into an extra ordinary setting, so I set my heart on Silence of the Lambs, where Clarice Starling would be a priestess new to a the rank of Demon Hunter rather than FBI agent, and Lecter would be the demon she needs to get into the mind of, to catch the even more evil threat (Buffalo Bill).

I'm exploring stylistic choices here as well as costume choices, as I'm still trying to figure out where I'd like to push my art in terms of getting that something special I can call my own. Ultimately I have my favourites, but as ever, you guys have always been good with feedback so I'm open to ideas too!

I should also point out here that I envisage Starling as more of an HQ-based demon hunter.. the sort who doesn't leave the office much and is more research and questioning-based, so practicality is a lesser concern over looks (imagine if you will a less prudish, high fantasy female equivalent of the get up the priests of the vatican wear). I'm also trying to bring a little of my biggest inspiration, Brom, into my own work, in my own way, so if she feels a little sexier in some, that's a deliberate choice. :)

Hey! By all means feel free to work on or two of them up for details if you like. As long as the description wherever you post the piece links back to this original piece so people can find it, I'm happy. Ping me another comment when it's done so I can see too :)

B3 Is probably my personal favourite though they're all gorgeous, I had a pretty tough time deciding!

Thanks! B3 and 4 are probably my faves of the lot, but B3 I might have to turn into some kind of master archer cause her outfit just says something more nimble than high priestess!

I think the middle row is my favorite in regards to style. They are all gorgeous, but the middle row is what sticks out the most! :D
