This is my last update and I really had fun with it.

With this project, I have learnt a lot especially on the hard surface modelling and sculpting skills, and I am really happy with the outcome. It also made me explore more with Z-Brush and lighting. I hope you enjoy my work!

I sculpted and posed the character with Z-Brush and rendered the images with Arnold. 

Here is Dale without the coat.

Almost finished with the sculpt, will be finishing the coat and posing the character and the next update would be the final!

I have added most of the big shapes for the suit, will be adding the final details and shoe later, and will move on to the face and hair as well.

I added some details on the face and the overall body, will be cleaning up the clothes, jacket and hair in the upcoming two days. 

Pose-wise, since she has the ability to manipulate the elements, I think posing her like a witch or mage engaging in a battle would be nice. I will try to make the pose more dynamic to maximize the advantage of the design being so lengthy.

As the original concept does not show the design underneath the jacket, I decided to design it myself and use it as reference. I think a thinner robotic suit fits the character more so I went with a simpler design underneath the jacket. 

And here are the current reference I have, might have more as well later

Here is the refined body, I personally prefer doing a more anatomically correct body before moving on to the clothes. Although it has a longer body than a normal woman, I still tried my best to incorporate real-life anatomy into this sculpt since I believe a good base model is always important before moving on to further part of sculpting.

I will be moving on to retopology and cleaning the unwanted details and create the clothes and gear.

Update - 13 Jul 2021

This is the concept I have chosen.

Here is the base mesh for Dale. She has a more stylized leg so I made it longer than the typical female figure.
