    Scorpia Photo Manipulation

    Hey,

    I'm the Art Director and Creative Retoucher for this project. The other people involved are John Paul Zampetti, Jonathan Pearson (3D Modelling), and Andy Douglas (Photography).

    The idea I had was to revive iconic 80s cartoon characters and present them in a way in which they might look in a modern day movie depiction. First in the series was Cheetara from Thundercats. Second in the series is Scorpia.

    We worked together to re-design the character to look more movie-like. We decided early on that she should look like a woman wearing armor rather than a woman spliced with a scorpion. We also wanted the armor to look damaged, to resemble the rough texture of a scorpion exterior.

    There will hopefully be a second edited image from this photoshoot released sometime this month. Please keep updated with my work on www.ryanarya.com and contact me at ryanarya@hotmail.co.uk if you'd like information and pricing on any prints of my work.

    We will be working on Catra next so I will keep you all updated on here in the new year.

    Please feel free to ask any questions.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Awesome! Scorpia was always one of the least "frilly" of the she-ra characters, and therefore one of my favorites.

    I'd love to see this look used for a MOTU/POP big movie/tv series.

    Stunning! and your model there would be perfect for a live action She-Ra episode, beautiful and cruel looking. Excellent work all round.

    The helmet works well, and the face / expression strike me as perfect for Scorpia.

    Didn't see this until just now - VERY cool! Excited to see how you guys pull off Catra's mask - it's not the easiest design and can easily look wrong.

    Good luck!
