    MOTUC Visions: Glimmer

    Okay, this is wasn't what I promised, and to be honest she didn't even came out that great.
    I was very stressed with the current job so i wanted to do something to relax, and I wanted to mess a bit with Photoshop CS5's new brushes.
    This is really my very first attempt at using the new wet brushes there.
    I chose Glimmer because there was some talk about her beign one of the next POP MOTUC.
    If anything, this shows how Mattel could sell two figures with a single mold (admit it, most us us would buy both decos! )

    Liking it Emiliano.

    Not sure which one I like the best as the changes to be are so subtle. The original toy feels so muted, while the cartoon version is more vibrant, like MOTUC. Can Mattel even go with the cartoon one?

    The Photoshop wet brushes work well. Is it a big leap from CS4, in terms of digital painting?

    They are going with what's in the 1987 Style Guide, so I'm pretty sure this shouldn't be a problem at all

    For Photoshop, yes, but it doesn't do anything that Painter haven't been doing for years.
    And the brush response is still far from being fluid and realistic like in Painter (that's why I prefer to sketch in Painter)

    Nice work as always, Emiliano! I hope Mattel gets her even close to how well Glimmer looks there. I am eager to add her to my collection.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Beautiful work, Emiliano! I like the cartoon colors best. I hope they'd make the blue parts metallic as an homage to the silver in the vintage figure's version. Also, the vintage figure had unique boots and bracelets. If they're going to emulate that version, I'd rather them do it right. Teela has really ornate bracelets, so there's no reason to skimp on the detail. That's why if they're going to use the plain ones, I'd rather see the cartoon colors.

    My only two criticisms are that I would prefer the toy come with some bigger hair... I always loved Glimmer's bushy pink afro, and always thought her flattened hair in the cartoon made her look kinda homely. Give her some volume... LOL! And I'd rather her have some sort of skirt instead of the "clad in spandex" Filmation look. But I think her face looks great here, and I love the detail on her staff!

    Amazing! Perhaps the cartoon (style guide) version could come with some extra accessories and the original toy version an extra head with the afro!?

    Great work Emiliano. Personally I'd love to see Netossa next.

    WOW!!! I love it, Emiliano!

    I have to admit, Filmation's colors are always beautiful, though I've long been a fan of the toy look for Glimmer. I think though that if they can go with the Style Guide Glimmer, then they should stick to those colors and not bother with the toy color scheme at all. Toy colors should go with a more faithful interpretation of the toy design (with fabric skirt, crown, bad perm, etc).

    But I love the staff unconditionally! It's perfect!

    Seriously Emiliano, what's wrong with her? She's perfect. Your stressed with your current job? Can't wait to here what that is.

    Very nice! With all your previous designs being so close to what the Four Horsemen have done. I'm sure she'll look like one of the two you have there! So no worries!

    SHE IS GORGEOUS!!!!
    My only fear is that Four Horsemen don't find these threads
    ...I love both, but I prefer Style Guide colors

    Emi, how about begin to show the them back view?

    Just let 'em know

    I'd love to, but as you know, time is limited. I'd like to do full turnarounds for all of them, but I barely manage to squeeze them here and there, so we'll see

    Coloring is not as good as I wanted it to be. I think Perfuma is still the best I did.
    I shouldn't have used the word stressed for the current job, it's something I'm enjoying a lot, I'm just a bit tired and not always happy with the results.
    I dont' think any of the stuff I do for Hasbro will ever see the light, especially if it's movie related but it's always fun and challenging!

    I have a soft spot for Netossa, I'd love to sketch her!

    Oh I'm with you on that. I'd much prefer a toy version that actually look like the toy. But the idea here was to show what the result would be with a simple repaint. Something very cheap for Mattel.

    Oh I like her! Definitely prefer the more softer colours of the toy deco! She looks a little more sleek I think!

    Love that new brush too. Is that just on CS5?

    Dear God, the cartoon version is so awesome! I've wanted such a Glimmer for ages! Heck, that's one of the very few cased where I'd even pay more than the usual price just to get her!

    Wow, am I the only guy who likes the toy colors better? Anyway, she looks cool! I'd hope that a release would give her another accessory to make her a little more interesting, but the staff is really detailed and it at least covered her usual gear...I think. I didn't look it up. Anyway, she would make a good first offering from She-Ra's group. Simple and cost effective, since he doesn't come with much.
