Soloria by DNA-1 Soloria by DNA-1
Concept art from a scrapped MOBA game. Soloria, our Outlaw Gunfighter hero unit, was shaping up pretty well, and we were all starting to think of her as a possible face for the game, probably because of her eye-catching red palette and unique theme and origin. You don't see a lot of Mexican-themed heroes in MOBAs, and we were hoping to be the first. (Just think of all the cool possibilities for skins, starting with a Dia De Los Muertos!!) Man, I'm sorry this game didn't make it.

Artistically, I was trying something really different on this title. Sort of a photo montage/ photo texture thing to give the characters a more realistic vibe. Definitely learned a lot, and I'm sure I'll continue using these techniques in the future.

Fun fact: my favorite touch on this design was a suggestion from our producer. It's the period-accurate silver dollar trim on her sombrero.

Great take on an iconic beautiful symbol I've often seen in Chicano tattoo art, the sexy bandita! A Dia de los Muertos skin would have been rad for her, dropping the face veil I'd hope.

Thanks! I guess this would be our answer to Miss Fortune. :) Any MOBA's going to inevitably invite comparison to LOL, since it's the current best in breed.

Too bad it didn't see the light of day. With characters like that it would be one nifty game I can say.

Yeah you were right about face of the game. That lady has something about her. Mysterious, badass and beautifull.
