How do you do, Kudzu? By the looks of things, I had a pretty clear idea of how I wanted S.C.U.M's arboreal anarchist to look pretty much from the get-go, as my first round of concept sketches don't deviate greatly from her final form. My idea behind Kudzu's morphology was to step a bit into the Uncanny Valley: she needed to possess a sort of delicate, ethereal beauty, while at the same time look subtly unnerving and threatening; as her sinuous, winding vines and leaves appear to have ulterior motives beyond her gentle smile and deceptively vacant look. And once she starts lashing at you with barbs, tendrils and spine-covered seed pods? Yep, time to call this blind date to the abruptest of ends!
