I like this topic!
So I decided to give it a little twist. some evil company (or the government) has decided we are simply too many people in this planet, and has engineered a pest controller for this job. A little girl immune to poison so that she does not have to wear a mask will not raise suspicion.She carries the poison in her backpack, and she just goes around killing people.

a little sketch I did so the idea starts taking form, sorry for the crappy pic!

Pest controller / robber. Maybe he's a legitimate exterminator or maybe it's just a cover. So far I'm liking my color thumb, but I'm still trying to come up with his face. The scene has him changing attire in an alleyway, and there should be sufficient props in the final that make his character clear.

Here's what I have so far. Any critique would be helpful, this lighting is tough to figure out. It's in the evening when everything has a blue haze, and the lighting is low contrast, so it's a little difficult to look at I think.

Looking good guys! Here's my character so far, very early stages. I took the advice from the last challenge about needing more details and thinking through those more and have tried to incorporate that into this character, although there will be even more details not shown here yet. I also want to design the giant pests that she has to fight, as well as an environment for them. I really enjoy this challenge.
Oh, and this is my first time attempting to design a gun or having someone holding one really that I can recall, so sorry that it's so simple lol.

Hey guys,
I saw that stuff is going on here, so I wanted to participate!
I'm going to try to make something creative out of this, but this is all I came up with for now.

I'm sorry guys, for trying to cover up my uncreativity with detail. I mean she's maybe some modern gladiator or some shit, but nobody would think of an pest controller. Maybe, if I manage to finish this in time, I'll start a second one, that makes sense.

Took a more concept art approach to this. I need to work on drawing more concisely, I think I lost a lot from the original gesture

I hurt my hand, so I will not be able to finish this (or draw anything for some time)
This is as far as I got... pretty much nothing to see.
