Battlesuit in a box by Ranarh Battlesuit in a box by Ranarh
Finally, my new ID is done!! :phew:
I had actually wanted this to be done by the end of last year... anyway, I finally did it, and I really like how her battlesuit came out. Ranarh, my namegiver, is a roleplay character with an imperial battlesuit and a lightsaber (not shown here). She's human, but not Terran - that's why her colours are like that. The bunny thing on the floor is a fremai, an iconic creature of the setting. Man, are they stupid.
Done in Painter, I upgraded to 11 in between and instantly got into trouble with the new contrast handling. Thanks go out to the guys from and the Luminarium for their help.

This was her description for the other players of the group:

"Ranarh Eadha is a modified human (Lanpar variant). Her physiology doesn't differ that much from the human standard; she's flexible, and has no problems with dust. Has an excellent balance, but doesn't handle pressure changes very well. Most of all, Ranarh is very small with her only just oneninety. Her skin is gold, her hair inky blue, and her eyes red. Her hairdo is sacrificed easily; she had it long on Helvite, crew cut in the military, and now something like an asymmetric bob.

The cargo hold in her cybernetic left arm always has a pack of chewing gum. Really, chewing gum is a solution for everything! Almost as good as towels, but edible.
Ranarh comes from a rich crime family. She loves pop - chewing gum, holo-fremai adoptables, vibrodaggers with kawaii Ginkosh on them etc. Her nature doesn't allow her to skip any fashionable sports, or not to test an insane technology, or... and most of all, she doesn't think about it twice. With her luck though, it doesn't go wrong *all* the time.

She doesn't own much. Her weapons are her most prized possessions - vibrodagger and vibrosaber, and especially the lightsaber from the Koltar's captain. She's probably the only one regarding the twelve fremai as commonly owned by the crew, and has to save the poor dumb creatures' lifes several times a day (she named them after defeated adversaries). But at least frem mean there'a always Gribbai. The only thing Ranarh just eats without suspiciously testing it for poison. She always changes plates with her friends, and lectures them about the consumption of things like energy drinks.

Her attitude is louty and humorous, towards others as well as herself. Normal sitting is out of the question; she lolls. She sticks chewing gum onto everything. She trains initial carving with her lightsaber on the fusion generator casing. She binds bows to the fremais' ears. Mekeles' too, while she sleeps. Half her vocabulary is youth slang. She takes a stroll on the ship's outer hull in the morning without a tether. She reprograms the sustenance machine to Gribbai flavour. She would die for her friends and COs, has never had a problem with an alien no matter how weird, steals from the rich to give the poor and would never draw innocents into it. And she always shares her chewing gum."

As you can see, Ranarh is all kinds of fun. Some of these are insider jokes and comments, but as all roleplayers I'm happy to talk about my character, so ask! ;)

Thank you.

You've no idea how hard it is to stand in a doorway like that, until your simple camera finally makes a picture ;)

My favourite part of that description was Ranarh comes from a rich crime family :) Seriously loving the background and the faint reflections of the characters in the glass. Damn you have to much patience lol!

Yes, crime family - they actually sent their administrator to fetch her. She was imprisoned at the time, and he seemed to be content running away with her cut-off hand. Was a bad hand week. :D
