"Come on Mr.B, Big Sister doesn't like slowpokes"

I love the Bioshock games so I wanted to do a homage piece featuring a Big Sister.

I don't normally do backgrounds or borders of any kind in my pieces so this was a little new for me, I went for a different colouring style for the deep sea background as opposed to my usual block colouring character style.

Hell yes! Awesome Big Sister! Really got her pose right, nice use of the jagged lines and angles as well.

She looks great but I think her cage needs to be bigger.

Speaking of a great piece hats off to you Deus you honestly couldn't have done better with capturing the sinister and rather terrifying image you would expect of the big sister, damn!

Really impressed how well your border and background itself add that darkness to her look and the long and skinny arms definitely do their justice, bravo.

By the way nice red glow of the eye, at this point its the most recognizable thing we always see with Big Sis here.

Thanks Timmy!
I think the Big Sister is a really great design for an antagonist, scary as hell the first time I had to fight one in Bioshock 2.

Yeah the border/background combo seems to work!

The red eye reminds me of Hal 9000 from 2001 Space Odyssey, same sinister idea I guess

Oh yes and she's all about making you quiver in your Big Daddy boots when you hear her terrible screeching, hence again this picture gives you faint reminder of that. o0o

You can say that again, nice choice!

Had thought the very same thing too, even odder how well it trails you in the game, seems like its robotic but when you get up close to it like when you meet Eleanor its so much cooler.
