SSX3's ELISE, less egregious by AdamWarren SSX3's ELISE, less egregious by AdamWarren
The final, revised version of another illo that Ryan Kinnaird and I did for EA's snowboarding game SSX3. The original Elise pose at the bottom of the illo was judged to be a bit saucy for a game rated "E For Everyone," so I replaced the earlier iteration with this somewhat less egregious pose... which I actually like better, as it turns out.

Anyhoo, when I get a chance, I'll dump some of the roughs for the "Elise pose revisions" over in the scraps section.

Pencils and inks by me, colors by Ryan.

Knew I recognized this pic of Elise. I saw it in the Russian pilot's chopper in the newest SSX.

You're right, this one is better.

Looking at this picture reminds me of the La La La Lock step, and her top "Canadian pride".

I totally spotted this pic of Elise in the trailer for the new SSX on gametrailers tv just now. A testament to your awesomeness.

This is nice, but the little things kill it.

Her hips and boobs look too big compared to her waist [even in cartoon standards] I expected there to be a panel of her snapping in half after that first one. Itís most noticeable in the large panel of her lying down.

Her lips look really big, and swollen in that same panel, like they were stung by bees, while her lips are really thin in the rest of the image. She is looking a lot like Anna Nicole Smith in that laying down panel. Even if she is pouting, the upper lip is far too big. Larger upper lips is a trait black people tend to have, and she looks very white to me. Try looking in the mirror and pouting yourself to get the look right.

Her mouth in the middle panel is really weird. Itís very long, and it just dips over her chin ever so slightly that it looks really awkward and unattractive. Not to mention the one giant tooth on the top of her mouth, it reminds me of those bad American cartoons that try to copy Anime. It is way to big, and looks strange and fake when the other teeth in her mouth are so finely detailed. You need to make it less long, or add a gum line and some detail lines to show itís not one giant monster tooth!

you always do great work, but i think this is the first one that made me want to star at it for a while ..... I love the storytelling element of the character design..... great work=]

I actually think this one is SEXYER than the other.

Its all in the head really but I guess the people who has stakes in making money on the game wants to be darn sure they aren't offending anyone.

Keep up the great work. =)

I like both versions but this one is cuter and seems more sporty.
krashark Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Very cute!
angelidollinda16 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007
I like this pose, too. It adds a contrast to the action scenes behind her that I think balances out nicely; plus it makes it seem like she's taking a break. Tell Ryan the colors are great! ^^
smokeART Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007
I spent all my money on those when I could have seen them here?
ariakitty Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think I like this one better too, her expression is really cute. I love the background as well, there's so much action and stuff going on, it really makes you want to stare at the picture for a very long time! <3
jbwarner86 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007
Actually, you're right - this pose does look a bit nicer. It's a little more sophisticated, and the anatomy seems more naturalistic and less twisty. Plus, I can add this one to my favorites without my mother getting the wrong idea.
