Here's Snively and Lien-da as they appear in the Archie Sonic comics. Sort of, considering how the art styles shift between issues and artists :D

Making these was quite a few lessons in Blender and my own ignorance, but I'm resonably happy with how they came out.

Can anyone recognise their poses from somewhere?

I am forever mystified as to how this bitch even has a fan-base. 

Lien-Da is the most selfish, remorseless, power-hungry, idiotic, uncaring bitch in leather clothing that I have ever seen in my life! 

All she cares about is power and becoming Grandmaster of the Dark Legion and she constantly tries to gain that position she doesn’t deserve when instead she should accept her place at the table and just put up with it. Whenever she’s on page, her dialogue consists to me of “Waah I want power! Waah, I hate being second in command! Waah I deserve to be Grandmaster!” and I just groan whenever she opens her trap. I especially can never forgive her for what she did to Dimitri. Disabling the poor man and stuffing him in a box and leaving him to die? That is bang out of order and unforgivable, especially as I LIKE Dimitri! You can imagine how happy I was when Lien-Da taking Dimitri’s place came to bite her in the ass in Issue 211…but she somehow survives being blown up, making her a victim of survivor’s guilt and making me hater her all the more. 

Now I know a power-hungry villain can be interesting and cool to watch but here’s the thing…Lien-Da’s NOT interesting. She’s completely flat outside of “Waah I want power!” and her back-story does not justify her actions in anyway, it just makes her EVEN MORE unlikeable! Her back-story is pretty much “I’ve wanted power all my life and I’ve been cheated out of it and I’m pissed about it”. How is anybody supposed to find that sympathetic in anyway? It’s not sympathetic at all, it just further justifies why she’s such an unlikeable character. Nothing’s interesting about her and nothing in her back-story justifies her actions or makes us feel sorry for her, it makes us hate her even more.

Another reason I hate her is that she thinks she’s deserving of the position of Grandmaster and yet she hasn’t got the skills to be a Grandmaster. She can’t fight and she has a poor weapon. Seriously, a whip? Is that it? It’s not a good weapon at all and Antoine quickly renders her weapon-less in Issue 198. And whenever she’s in a mission, she’s just sitting around barking orders and when the going gets tough, she legs it. Yeah, how exactly is she deserving of Grandmaster again? Lien-Da is a terrible excuse for a leader so no wonder she doesn’t deserve the position, nor does she ever get it.

So that’s Lien-Da. She’s a villain with no motive other than mindless, rapacious greed, she’s a poor excuse for someone who deserves to be a leader and she’s just annoying as hell and the embodiment of unlikeable. Thank GOD Thrash the Tasmanian Devil got rid of her in “Endangered Species”! I hope she NEVER comes back after that…

You'd be surprised at the characters that people like. Or not :D

It seemed like they were starting to build her up starting around the Eggman arc until the Endangered Species a little. But I guess she's toast now.

Subjects? Sub-ordinates? Mooks?
acurate term would be unlikely allies.

your models are fantastic! i was wondering if your ever going to give any of them out for public use, and in what file format?
JoeAdok Nov 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
At some point yeah, probably as .blend files.
SilverStarlite Nov 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
 look foreward to that then ^^ also, if you do sonic comics stuff, you should do one of Lara-su at some point if you haven't already.
