    Woo, a new AP thread! :D Why the name change anyway?

    Jay had been a bit unsure about Erin and when we all started talking about it we came up with a few other ideas and Aria sounded like a really good match for her.

    What does Erin look like without her suit on? I could use her face for a Minecraft skin...

    I'm probably gonna make a portrait to show that at some point.

    When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought that Aria might be the name of the symbiote. Without giving too much away, have you thought about adding a personality to the armor and giving it a name?

    Aria is a really cool name.

    Reminds me of Arya from Game of Thrones >w>

    But yeah I love that a badass space bounty hunter has such a feminine name :D

    The more I look at her sprite the cooler it looks.

    Yeah, Aria sounds kind of light and it even means air so it seemed like a good match for a quick and stealthy thief. :D

    On a more serious note, it's cool to see the evolution of the armor.
    On another note, it's gonna be a tough hell to make the fanart for it.

    Looking over all of these designs, I'd say the final one is definitely the best -- there just seems to be something a little "off" about all of the others. I'd really like to see some artwork of the complete suit design, if possible.

    By the way, I notice that this Art Process doesn't contain multiple color schemes . . . does that mean that you decided on Erin/Aria's colors right away and never felt the need to change them?

    Actually I completely forgot about that, I was wondering why it seemed a bit shorter then normal. :p

    But yeah, it actually is the case that we never really considered many variations, the colors I've shown were the first ones I tried and we ended up sticking with them. I think I may have done a few color variations, but none of them stuck. I'll see if I can find them to add though. :)

    Edit: Just added them, I can't remember all of what we tried but here are the ones I do remember:

    I think there may have been about three more, I think they were all just different versions of the same general color though.

    Interesting post, as always, Zach! I'm really looking forward to her profile picture as well!

    I'm a fan of the new name. Erin was too similar to Aran.

    Great post! This was fun to read!

    I liked Erin though :p It was slightly reminiscent of Aran.

    Can't wait to see Aria's portrait ... (OF RUIN!!)

    Purple armor is so stylish! :D
    Blue has its charm as well.

    In any case, I must say that the "Portrait of Ruin" pun was unexpected. I wonder what sorta obscure puns could come out of our brave minds' dimension... Puns coming out of a Portal to Dark Bravery!
    ...
    Ok this one was lame as hell.

    Great thread! I really enjoyed this one. I think Aria is a great name.

    And those colors, they're like a symphony...of night!
