Tempo Slice by Shwann Tempo Slice by Shwann
Well known for her skills behind the decks and her equally impressive and deadly gunblades skills, Tempo Slice is the newest addition to the ever-growing SHWANN Universe!

Artwork by: :iconnelsondaniel:

Be sure to also check out these previous illos by Nelson:

Tempo Slice is owned by :iconshwann: and :iconjohnnyrocwell:


Also, for those of you interested, here's a detailed description of what I sent to various artists (along with several reference images) in order bring Tempo Slice to life.

Tempo Slice!

Brief overview: I want Tempo Slice to be more techy than the rest of the crew but not so futuristic that she wouldn't also fit in during the Samurai period. Think sexy cyber-ninja meets old school Samurai... hence the sleek blacks colors but red Samurai armor.

Personality: Self-righteous
Main Colors: Black, armored gray, and red.
Body: Very fit, long lean
Hair: White with a low braided pony tail and red tips at the curled bangs.
Eyes: Scar over her left eye (a scratch from Soochi)
Headphones: Low profile black/red that connect around the back of her head.
Outfit: Black patent "pleather" with red armor accents on the shoulder and gloves. Not too many accents anywhere else though... kinda want to keep her look edgy and sleek.
Main Weapons: Dual Gunblades... great for ranged attacks but even deadlier when the fight gets up close and PERSONAL!
Back up weapon: Short katana attached to her lower back.

i can't help but stare at her feet. they look like little tags or flaps, or maybe i'm just not getting it. if you fixed the perspective on whats below her knees, this would be even more awesome.

Wow. I've been browsing through all of your pieces (DJ Goh Goh, Tempo Slice, et cetera) and they're amazing! I have to say, I think Tempo Slice might be my favorite. Her outfit is a little cliche, but with the red stripes and the gun blades - amazing! Totally unique. I do have to ask, though, are her lower legs supposed to be so small? Her feet in particular seem very tiny to me.

Glad you dig her! :) And that's just Nelson's unique design perspective... her feet are normal size. ;)
