Vanda Darkflame was our replacement character for Baron Typhonus - who ultimately becomes the Darkitect. She represents the Paradox faction, which served as the closest a player could get to joining an 'evil' faction, as they dabbled and experimented with the energies of the Maelstrom. She is, of course, a kick-butt ninja-type character...
The final approved concept for Vanda.
Thought we were there - still too dark. Notice the older Paradox branding.
First color pass - we decided this design was way too aggressive.
A couple sheets of rough explorations for Vanda.
