Felina Haynesworth Revisited

Here's something I cooked up over the weekend while I was thinking of new ideas. It's just a simple portrait-like sketch of Felina Haynesworth, an Unreal Tournament 2004 skin I released about 4 years ago. It's been a while since I put anything Felina-related up on the web, but I liked this sketch so I thought I'd show it. I have more, but for now this is the only one I'm willing to show. Maybe I'll put others up later. ;)

I found it interesting (and pretty awesome) that even after all these years, some people still have an interest in her. Some have asked if I'm planning on putting her into UT3. I looked over the character models that had been released thus far, and many are gorgeous. I mean really, really gorgeous. Felina in UT3 might be awesome, but I'm not sure yet if I'd be willing to invest the time necessary to make her, especially with the expectations that'll no doubt fall upon me with it. o_o

Any thoughts?


  1. Tj Tj Tj. Guess who this is. :-)

    It's MrHappy from Truespace. Way way way back in the days when you worked at Kanomi. :-) Been a long time. Good to see you still drawing and doing your thing. How have you been. Drop me a message at

  2. As always I love to see your artwork! I think that you are and amazing artist! Keep up the wonderful work!

  3. I might be late to the party but dude, Felina is just...Wow. I got her back when you first released her when she was just a marygold model edit, and just loved her to death. Today I still wonder if you'll ever make that voice pack for her if you haven't already, and use her rather regularly on my team ( in her pink outfit for its...MANY...Bonuses :P). Heck I would love to see her become more expanded on via your artwork as your drawing skills are just awesome. If anything I say don't forget about her, because after all this time I know I haven't. ;)

  4. Glad you guys like her. :)

    I have a bunch of other drawings of her that I haven't uploaded, mainly because they're meant for a project I haven't had time to finish. Others have been bugging me to put up more art of her as well, so I might do that when I have more time.

    Sorry, no voice pack... As much as I wanted to do it, the voice talent pool around these parts is kinda slim, and I'm pretty picky about my projects lol. Accent, voice tone, and character would all have to be just right. Even considered paying a professional to do it. So it might come in the future, maybe with UT3 if I can get around to it. Big "maybe" on all of that though. haha

    I see it's been a while since my last update... I really should put something else up. :)

  5. Hello there, I hate to resurrect a long ago blog, but I thought it'd be worth invested at least just a look. I know you probably have stuff in real life and other works you're dealing with, but since Marygold was ported to UT3 a while ago, I was curious if you had tried dinking around with a Felina skin for the new model. Felina was amazing in UT2004, and I'd love to beat down some Necris alongside her. :P

  6. Hi there, no worries about bringing up an old 'thread'... these blog posts shouldn't sort by last comment ;).

    I've taken a look at the Marygold model a while back, but to be honest with you I haven't tried putting Felina's skin on it. There's a couple reasons for that, but the main reason is that I've been toying with the idea of rebuilding Felina completely for UT3 instead of just a skin, and I just haven't had the time to do the project. I've gone so far as to create several prototype sketches, but I haven't had the time to build the model and learn a sculpting package to add the necessary (or unnecessary?) details.

    The other reason is that Hide (the guy behind the model) is notoriously difficult to get a hold of. It's not as big deal since it'd just be a skin this time around (no modifications to the model like the UT2k4 version), but I'd like to up my game a bit and put out a completely new version if I can.

    So... it's still a "maybe" on a UT3 version, but thanks for your interest! Hopefully I'll have time for her soon. ^^;

  7. It would be awesome to have life breathed back into Felina and have her updated. I'll be keeping an eye out for anything in the future.
