Jenna Revivial Concept by fox-orian Jenna Revivial Concept by fox-orian
For some of my oldest watchers, you may remember a character I used to draw by the name of Jenna. After a while, I developed Maia, and Jenna disappeared from my gallery some time in mid 2004.

Well, after all these years of Jenna being dead in the back of my mind, I realized she'd be perfect to resurrect for a role in SYNTHESIS. If you know and remember the old Jenna from my earliest years here at DA, you win 3000 spacebucks.

So, I took the time to develop a new concept of Jenna. New personality, new look. Though, her fundamentals are still there. Jacket, long black hair, green eyes. It goes without saying, Jenna is a non-synthetic Aricee inhabitant. Jenna is kind of aloof in personality now. She stays kind of remote, but takes great interest in certain situations around her. Maia becomes one of her interests, because she senses that SOMETHING is different about her. Jenna is neither a protagonist or antagonist.

This is a part of a new style I'm playing with. I'm using some selective exaggeration such as the flatter feet, thinner neck, ankles and wrists. I'm drawing the rest of the cast this way because I'm curious to see how it will work out. I'm not very happy with my *typical* style in submissions past, so I'm doing some small experiments such as what you see here.

very stylish, i love the use of grey tones on colour.
The character herself looks really interesting, and the clothing design looks very futuristic while also looking like it could belong in today's world.

I must say. it's the first time I've been to your account and also gone through your art.
: ) I really enjoy what I see and find the concept art and such for your story really interesting.
Your style and such kind of reminds me of the Series Lain.
Which I really enjoyed as well.
: ) I look forward to seeing more of this! :heart:

yeah! I found it a good series, and the mood/feeling of it was interesting.
I find the same mood/feeling from your style and story so far. I can't really explain why. But i think it's a good thing.

The exaggeration works rather well. I think it may be better if you pushed it slightly further, though, to make it apparent the exaggeration is intentional. Or, you could use precise details to convey this, like the shoes.

Only thing that kind of bothers me are the folds in the crotch area; they seem a little...unnatural.

your experiments looks great to me, I like this slightly difformed silouhette, it passes perfectly as human and has a very nice graphic impact. even if this might sound silly but I really love how you drew her shoes, I tend to think that if shoes are well done the rest must be because usually people hate to draw feet and so focus more on the rest of the body. a fully detailed character, from head to feet is highly attractive though.
I'm sorry I couldn't know the old Jenna but this one looks really cool and interesting to me.
it's nice you're using an old character :)
and the layout of this artwork is really cool as well!

Nice design! I think that the adjustments to the drawing
style are nice. They seem more expressive, accenting the expression on her face. It seems (from my personal experience) that slimmer, more stylized anatomy gives a more mature and aloof demeanor to the character, whereas rounder anatomy gives a younger, happier look. I personally think that the anatomy change is very fitting for Jenna, and I look forward to seeing more of it. Great work!

nice concept, and liking the new style your trying to make with the thinner wrists etc
I was thinking that maybe an animal side-char might be accompanying her (cute small cat, or tiny bird, or i dunno whatever small thing) to give that extra touch or emotion.
