Birthday present for my sister Karen! She will be immortalized as an NPC in Halcyon Plume with a unique side quest in the game. She plays the role of a one of many witches in Sociel, with a rather unique personality and goal that will be revealed in the game.
Though she is much prettier in real life, hopefully Ive captured some of her unique charm and beauty.
Corsican SWISS-64 model. A light compact car that is used to get around in the floating islands of Sociel. It features a rear motor and a special engine that utilizes a very minute amount of energy to run at the cost of a moderately low top speed.
Although there are not many cars in Sociel, this one of the few that enjoys constant circulation on the major islands.
The model itself was greatly inspired by a certain car in Lupin the IIIrd
TIESELL-16 A handy mode of transportation favored by the Police of Sociel called the Aries commission. Some can even be augmented to “Fly“ using Gravimatrix technology. Making it s a handy and versatile vehicle in the world of halcyon Plume
Nibelungen and Gyges, the tricksters of Halcyon Plume.
Nibelungen is generally a support unit that attempts to steal objects, buff neighboring units, and calls in Gyges to attack. It also has the benefit of two shield arms and a shielded core. A powerful blast is needed to knock it off its guard and damage it effectively. It is also one of the only units that traverse both the Sociel and Nox landscapes.
Gyges is a miniature attack unit. Its generally fragile but it has a powerful long lasting attack with a long cool down and charge. Its a good practice to get rid of these immediately as they can quickly become a threat if not handled. I’ve also had the idea that Gyges could also be a portable grappling hook point allowing the player to grapple in multiple locations.
The Nikomobile is ready for action! Part shop, ATV, and … Ramen stand?!
This little guy helps facilitate the ability to switch between the world of Nox and Sociel, providing a way point for our heroes in Halcyon Plume. Specifically for the Nikomobile the player is also given the opportunity to sell their scrap parts they previously shot down. You can also make on the fly changes before heading out to the next dangerous path in the game.
Promotional artwork for Halcyon Plume, trying to capture that studio Ghibli feel with my own special twist.
The polecat (below) keeps coming back to me as an important character as they are the sort of guardians of “Sociel“. Mapping it out and keeping paths open for travelers. The character is actually part of a separate frame from the background so It can be animated. I also took the liberty of finishing the flying fish on his switch sign.
This will hopefully be our horizontal banner when we table at Titancon on April 29th. As well as *Ahem… my new banner for social media
Working on 3d models recently for Halcyon Plume, they take more time than the concept art but the results are rewarding
Fennians are the descendants of cats who have been altered
by Halcyon Plumes. Nomadic and mysterious they move constantly, rarely
finding a place to call home. Refusing to be controlled or subservient, they are often called confrontational because they don’t like taking orders. They rarely make friends in the human community, but to a select few they will be friends for life.
Being a polecat is actually a profession. Though the applicant does not have
to be specifically a Fennian, four out of five of them are. They have a natural gift for balance and swiftness, jumping from ledge to
ledge making paths through the terrain in Sociel. They are often times
seen setting up Herring Markers that allow travelers insight into the
dangers related to each path.
