That looks like a nice model. Yes, it looks like an anime character or something, but I don't mind. I don't see however how she(I assume it's a she) is supposed to hold weapons with webbed hands. Considering OA has no actual new models, anything is welcome.

do you mean this seriously, as a joke, or as a request for opinion? how long did it take you to make? i'm similarly open to new content.

Actually, I think it's a pretty cool looking model.  How about a male version?

"FPS should be gritty, demonic, serious, dark, and brown, hurr hurr"

(Not my opinion BTW)

I agree that OA needs a clearly defined style so we, the community, can develop and contribute cohesive assets. Do I have a preferred style? Yes, simply looking at my posts reveals that. I am guilty of: "FPS should be gritty, demonic, serious, dark, and brown, hurr hurr" Perhaps it's my nostalgia towards Q3A and Heavy Metal.

Regardless of my personal preference, I can make art in pretty much any style. My hope is for OA to be a beautiful and smooth performing game.

When will she be committed to the SVN tree?

And as far as I can see... there won't be any uproar.

That model kind of looks like Gargoyle and Merman had a baby ,but in a good way. I think you did a nice job fromhell. :)
