I am going to do a Darkness/void warlord. Female human character.
Her weapon is some kind of morning star/whip full of negative energy. As soon as an ennemy is wounded his body collapse into dark energy, feeding the weapon and making it stronger.

Heres my first concept with some quick sketches.

Thanks guys for your comments.

heres an other update.

A rough sketch of the base design. Will probably add some elements, do more research, thumbnails... But I think the main base is there.

Mmmm, curvy. :drool:

Lookin' sweet! The only thing that's bugging me at this point is the gauntlet things; they don't really fit with the repeated shapes on the headdress, corset or shoes.

Thanks for your answer. yeah you right, I will put more consistency to my design, and dig more to this type of repeated rectangular shape.

I like the whole female warlord theme and how she has those smoke pillars extending from her back but I have a little problem with her figure; she seems a little short and the triangular wings near her shoulders are a little short IMO. Overall, nice!

For the shoulder part I wanted to have a smaller piece at the front. But I guess because this is not well defined, it does look wrong. About the face, after relooking at it I think there is more a problem on how I sit the head on the neck, but I will correct that on a more advance sketch.
Thanks for your comments.

I like the overall design and I'm interested by gauntlet things but I'm not sure about the Morning Star that she wields on a chain. I quite liked the original concept which was in the initial sketches (bottom left).

but I have a little problem with her figure; she seems a little
short

Maybe make the legs a little smaller?

Dneg-ed.

the main base is there. You can add details or whatever but this character design is very strong right now, don't toss it out please!

CharlesVarenne
02-24-2008, 09:50 PM
thanks ed for the comments. An other friend told me that the legs were big as well. But I like it this way. Perhaps I will make them thinner, but if I do it will be a tiny bit.
For the morning star I have to have this type of weapon for my final picture that I thought about.


DDS: thanks, no worries I like this design as well so I will keep on digging it.


Oki, about the concept heres more explanation. She has this weapon which each time she wound someone kill him by putting his body into a dark hole ( or something like that) and the weapon absorb this dark energy. After that she absorbs the energy of it to use it for being faster, stronger, more resistant etc... The things is this dark energy is so powerfull that she has to leave some getting out (a bit like a steam cooker) or the energy will destroy her from inside.

When she wound an enemy you will have his body smalling in part in a similar way as the energy around her hand (from the pic on the same post). Thats explaining the design as well on her armor.

So heres a first clean up, more details pic.

Oh no dont tell me it has a Xena feeling. I cant stand this series and design."just teasing:scream:" . But as it is video game design yes it probably has this feeling anyway.
Thanks for the comments:)

cool looking concepts.

An other update. I push up the design further. I am still thinking about different concept. Will probably make more thumb and research for the weapon later.
I am thinking as well on changing her race. Perhaps like a vampire or demon woman.

Yo Charles. She looks scary. Even scarier with a demon face! The only thing I can mention is her breast area. Her right breast looks a little small. This might be fore-shortening perhaps...

CharlesVarenne
03-04-2008, 01:36 PM
thanks darknight...hum je vois ou sont tes preocupations...:)

Yeah her breast is a bit off but I will correct that later. I am using this more as a sketch to push up my idea.
I think I will go for some head study later to show more that she is a demon/vampire.

CharlesVarenne

Some head studies. Tell me which one you prefer. After I will make my choice and push it further. Next will come some weapon studies.

Thanks

#4 and #6 looks pretty good but are you trying to go for a young look or a old lady look? If your try to go for a young look.. I suggest getting rid of that crease that goes from the mouth to the nose. Cheers

They look all the same to me. Only kidding!

3 & 4 look great.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

Darknight you seems to be my biggest supporter lol.
As you both prefered the 4 and I like it as well I will go for the number 4. Also i added details picked up from the number 1 and change a bit the eyes.

The tattoo on her face and arms is the trace of the Dark Energy she absorbs from the dead bodies of her ennemies to become stronger . This Dark Energy is so intense that it creates some black crease, then flood into her veins and skin.

Even if some gets out from the chimney on her back (the chimney are link to her body to avoid the Dark Energy to completly destroy her by letting the extra amount to get away), it is so intense that it still damages her body.

when a saw the first sketch of the woman i see a curious, but cool, thing:
I think that the flaming balls in the back of her armor was some king of pumpkin (like the pumpkin head of a haloween)

when you clean the drawn you show balls, not the pumpking that i loved...

you understand my Tarzan english??? :) (sorry)


good concepts! :)

I will add some details a bit later for sure. Now I am just blocking the main shape. All the decorations and details will come later. Probably not pumpkin though :)

A little research on the weapon. Still, it is the main shape, all details will come later.

Hi there,

I decided to experiment with an other character. It will be an evoker/summoning.

The number 3 is the Evoker.

She can summon a demon from the sea.
The other numbers are some sketch test drawing for the demon. So far I will go for the number 4 I think.
I will push further the story later as well as some sketching for the artifact.

I will choose later which one I prefer between the Warlord and Invoker.

dude these sketches look good.

I really like you woman character - nice skills.:thumbsup:

CharlesVarenne
03-22-2008, 06:50 PM
thanks darknight

So I finaly had more time to finish and push my concept drawing and get my final idea.
My final character will be a Darkness/Void Humanoid mutant invoker character.

Her weapon are some kind of whip.
The primary color one create darkness around her by destroying the color.
The black and white whip creating void by destroying the light and substance.
This power is so strong that it gets into her body.
Only her back chimney allow her to not being selfdestroy by getting rid of her excess power.

The drawing is not completly finish i need to put all the ornament on the armour, chimney, do more research on the whip and the glove-whip.

I am wondering if I should keep the primary color or if I should cheat and get a different color close to the primary color. Because for now the primary color are going to be quite ugly for the final pic I think.
I was thinking as a solution to mix the white and black from the right arm with the color.
The white and black spreading into her left arm and mixing with the color. So like that only a small part of the arm will have pure primary color.

Final design, I will now move to the final picture.

I got rid of the whip and put some spike instead.

I am now working on my final image.

On the floor there is some rest of the metallic creature. She is now fighting against a fire Warlord.
I have done some change of the design a bit as well.
