Well, I did say version 3 was coming soon... and here it is. This'll probably be the final one for a while, since I'm very satisfied with it. Key differences from version 2:
1) Narrower hips, now the same width as standard Metru or Vahki hips. This was my main problem with the previous version; the gears in the hips looked cool, but they were far too wide. I've managed to keep the gears, but now she's a little better proportioned.
2) Added detail on the legs. I never did all that much with Helanya's legs before, which is a shame since they're completely mechanical and that allows for some fun details. This version fixes that, with some added rods and pistons, particularly on the lower legs.
3) Reworked body. Redesigning the hips necessitated a redesign of the body. I managed to keep the same armor on the front, since I think it works rather well, but inside she's very different. Once again, rubber tubes proved to be particularly useful for filling in some gaps.
4) Weapon. Helanya's sickle (or scythe, but I think it's more sickle-ish) has gotten a small upgrade, mostly to reflect the back story I'm working on. Basically, I added some lime green. It's not a great color scheme with red, but in the story Helanya was given the sickle by Feldratus; he is from the Jungle Tribe, and originally, the sickle was a tool used to clear heavy vegetation around Tesara, hence the green.
As usual, credit to Tayanacon for the original character. Also, apologies for the blurriness of the back picture. It wasn't so obvious on the little screen on my camera...
