Social Justice Roleplay Concept

I had a concept years ago for a series of 'social justice roleplay' characters, based on the idea of the online 'social justice warrior' crossed with D&D, for which I did a series of illustrations. I decided to use it this year to practice my Maya skills, but I went a little back to the drawing board as at the time I had been focusing on the basic concept, 2D textures and dynamic poses but not really the silhouettes or costumes, which I wanted to make sure I had a better grasp on before beginning the modelling.

This is my first ever attempt at using Mudbox, and I'm fairly pleased with the result.

I appreciate that the characters themselves dont have much of a visual theme going for them in terms of period/culture of inspiration but hey ho. Wasn't really a priority.

The original concepts and their descriptions can be found on my blog, blog.eireniart.uk/tagged/sjw

Warrior: Bump map, specular map, diffuse map, Mudbox screenshots. This is my first ever attempt at using Mudbox, so I feel pleased with how it's come out as a first go.

Healer, Mage, Scout, Warrior: Practicing modelling, each time I tried a new character I got a bit better. I wanted to work without the sketches as reference so that I could focus on learning good modelling practices over 'accuracy'.
