Dan Simmons - Hyperion Cantos - Aenea and some other characters

One of the things I liked about Aenea's story was her period studying under a cybrid copy of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright. 
So here we have the wonderful Mayan looking concrete blocks from FLW's Ennis House, used in lots of sci-fi, like the original Blade Runner.

So much of the time Aenea carries great responsibilities for someone so young, much like Frodo Baggins in Lord of the Rings. Her pose is almost rigid like the background blocks. I was looking for her to almost seem like an Egyptian figure.

Early attempts.

The plan Aenea is working on is a copy of FLW's Fallingwater.

Meina Gladstone CEO, checking Ouster movements. Safe pose on one elbow!

Sargent Gregorius is a minor character I have made almost look like a Gurkha here. He has a great set up of tactical pouches!
