    Wow, really nice design evolution here. This will translate to ZBrush model real well! I look forward to seeing that.

    Weapon_1.jpg

    Well thougth id get the weapon out of the way. The small staff can transform into other weapons due to his inner power death/darkness. i do think the staff could look a little cooler, but due to texture size and the fact the handle wont be the main focus of the finished peice its not really sumat im guna lose sleep over. Ive noticed the handle looks a little short for him to hold but ill lenghten it when i model it, pointless redrawing it. Well hope you like it guys

    nice, clean design. way to prioritize, it'll surely look great without costing too much time compared to, say, a warhammer of epic proportions...

    Well another update. i think he looks much stronger without the hair and tail, they seem to distract me and confuse what im ment to be looking at, with just the mask i can really see alot more of his personality straight away. I am redesigning the weapon and im going to add a few more details and bits of equipment on his belt so its not finished yet. Hope you like it and tell me which 1 you guys prefer, im feeling number 1

    Well heres a rough mockup of my prince with some armor and a weapon, very rough just playing around seeing what i like. i tried to stay away from shoulder pads and armor as best as pos but it just looks better with them. the chains on his shoulders are goin to hook in his skin, the weapon is an axe type. Do you tink its an improvment? i think he looks the part more. i think his belt and down need some work now, maybe some blets and extra equipment. im playing around with the idea of my prince defeating all the previous DW winners but i wont the faces to be skinned and placed sumwhere on him, i was thinkin hanging from his belt but not really sure, any ideas there? thanks

    This is just a pose i had in mind, i think having his little minions around him would look awsome, really help him look like hes a prince of darkness.

    Just an idea for a pedestool. its a giant wave of darkness, some arms and heads showing up.

    It's always cool to see the process shots and concept work for a piece, and you've got some neat stuff goin on here. Kinda seems like your sketches are all very similiar though. Perhaps some more bold or uninhibited design experiments could really help find a cool and effective look and feel. More big/interesting/dynamic shapes in the armour, outfit, weaponry etc. Your last pose, with the weapon and the long head shape, is closer to what I'm talking about. There's some interesting stuff going on there. Even though it's gonna be a 3d character, think about the "composition" of it. Where the viewer will look first (usually the head) and how the viewers eye will travel through the design. The sizes and shapes of the anatomy, armor, etc will create a visual impact, so ask yourself, what sort of visual impact is my design making, and how effective is it? In the early concepting stage, when looking at ideas, the different iterations shoud be blatantly obvious, whereas, with yours, the differences seem pretty subtle. Unless you have something very specific in mind already that you are working towards.

    I'm really liking the minion. Nice anatomy, gesture, silhouette etc. It'll make a good little hellish sidekick.

    Hope I don't sound like I'm bustin your chops. Your workin hard and doin some cool stuff. Just thought I'd throw my opinion out there, for what it's worth. Look forward to seeing this piece evolve and good luck with Dominance War!
