Yo guys..Here's my rough concept of a undead warlord.. It's definetely the typicaly badass demonic boss. I think the head looks like diablo, so am not sure if this guy is gonna be the final one but i'm working on other concepts aswell. Just to warm up and throw all generic stuff out now.. More to come soon.. Everyone has such great entries it frightens me actually.. But anyhow, TO WAR!!
CHEERS!

Yeaah!! Way to go Rezeroth!!! Your design is just awesome! :D Can't wait to see more other concepts from you! I like the head on the right side of course, the two that are on the right side of the picture.

Great concept, his shapes are pretty well distributed. I think his torso could be a bit longer, though.

Here's my third rough concept.. i noticed there's a certain trend going on with my sillohuetes.. gotta work on that.. Not much idea for my artifact yet though..
This on was inspired from some chinese opera photo i shot qute some time ago..

02-21-2008, 03:09 PM
WOW... i like all of it.. but i like the 3rd 1 most.. feels very armoured and 'powerful'.. but if u add the head of the 1st and 2nd would be better ( more fully armoured).

lastly i like the name of it.. HAHA Rez ^^ ... u have my support.

Good luck!

Madness is right. That mirror stuff is a good idea. I may have to try that sometime. I'm diggin' your sketches. Love the flags, keep the flags.

02-22-2008, 05:55 AM
For what it's worth ... the first concept reminded me too much of Bigun (http://www.gameartisans.org/dominancewar/spotlights/taehoon/taehoon1.htm).
I do see something really nice however, in mirrored thumb experiment 2.03.

I think i gotta create something fresh the next. All this over detailed thumbs are blinding me, Maybe should have just blacked em out.. This piece is a composition of a few parts that i like from other thumbs. 02 Has shorter legs compared to the others. 03 is just like 01 but trying the flags on him, and 04 has a different torso and head.. Hmmm... Any comments? I wanna design a fat dude next..Hopefully, unless i have a better idea. :D Would prolly colour some roughs too. CHEERS Folks! that's all for today.. Lets hope that i get a nightmare tonight and some cool designs pops up in my dream. Anyway, oh ya is it a MUST to have a description or a story of your character? I noticed that lots of ppl have that..

the porpotion kinda remind me of transformer "megatron"
hehe im so glad im not the only Malaysian in this war xD

Swizzle
02-23-2008, 07:08 AM
Man, this is great stuff. Very interesting to look at.

I think the only criticism I'd have is that it's currently suffering from a bit of Transformers syndromeŚlots of cool details that, when viewed from afar, look a little too noisy. I think getting a few bigger shapes like you have on the hands into the rest of the body would push this from "great" to "holy awesomesauce, Batman!"

SashaP
02-23-2008, 07:43 AM
Reminds me of the Escaflowne Mecha Design. Great detail on this, so much to look at, the orthographic views must be amazing!

ColdKodiak- Yes.. i agree.. im trying to get out of it!!LOL! thanks man!

Calyx - Where's your thread? How did you find mine? lol!! You know you have all my support too kkk!! POST!!!

YongWei- LOL! m'sian,.. great to see you too though i dont know you :P Good luck to you too man!!

Swizzle - Thanks man.. very helpful stuff you mentioned. :D the thumbs are definitely over killed with details but i'm still searching for great sillohuetes so,..bah the details..though it does help suggest ideas to me for detailing still LOL!!

Say..Must our characters have legs? o__O

Cool last rough! I think without legs its even better:)

Rezeroth

CG-Gordon - Thanks.. though i still think he looks very generic. Looks like "i've seen him somewhere before" that sort. T__T working on it.

02-25-2008, 01:17 PM
Great concepts. my personal favs are the first one and the legless one you just created. The spine or tail seems to be a bit less aggressive compared to the overall design. the side head profile also reminds me alot of the robots in Evangelion (not that its a bad thing it just reminds me of it).

as for your first concept i think its totally original! besides the overall look of the silhouette that has slight a reminder of big gun its a great design! I hope you will make a really BIG axe for it ;D

best of luck with DW3!

Rezeroth
02-25-2008, 01:37 PM
thanks guys! Jicks! thanks for the comment, appreciate it! Good luck to you too man! Alright some stuff here that i just finished. I'm still exploring possibilities and am trying to make things look a lil more original. Trying trying... Anyway, enjoy!

It's so hard to be 'original' these days, everything is already done. I like your guy so far though. I like the no legs too. Like a big chunk of floating demonish armor read to rip through anything that gets in it's way!

02-25-2008, 08:52 PM

Nice stuff! I really like the angles you're getting in that profile view. It's very "Escaflowne" (from the anime series) which is awesome since that series had amazing designs. The flags and tassles are a great touch too.

I'll be checking this thread!

Your concepts are fantastic so far! I'm really impressed with how thorough you're being too - I'd have stopped at character concept 3 (which I love) and just gone from there... but you keep on going. Awesome work!

calyx
02-26-2008, 06:00 AM
Lol..how can i not know, hmm? ;) Keep rockin'!

I do have ideas in mind, but before i have some things to show i thought of holding back a thread first. Trying to not be over ambitious with uni work atm too @_@


Btw, that legless character really reminds me of that floaty silhouette thing we did for In-House :3 That reminds me.. Tell you in mail or something :D

GO GO

Okay, here's what i've been working on lately. Been dead busy with my office work so i dont have much time to work on the war, but i pretty much got into this direction. Quite happy with some stuff. So i still gotta work some things out (like fucntion and stuff) I decided to design this undead dude like wearing a Huge massive organic suit with large arms. He will still be the head but his regular arms will extend far out and joins the elbow joint of the massive suit arm.. (its gonna be tough if its gonna be done in 3d especially if rigging is concerned) Oh well, enough rambling.. C&C are welcome, always :Dhttp://features-temp.cgsociety.org/gallerycrits/120647/120647_1205757630_large.jpg

This is looking really wonderful! I hope you have enough time to complete it. In this latest sketch, you've simplified the sword some. I really liked its shape in the previous sketch more - the shapes on teh top echoed the forms on Garabath. As for him, he looks terrific. My only suggestion would be to possibly lenthen the torso a bit. Right now it seems somewhat squashed. But anyhow, still great. Good luck!

QuantumPixel
03-18-2008, 08:27 AM
Super awesome especialy that last finished looking one with the huge draping cloth and scull head with the strait back objects and the evil looking brow so sweet man .. especialy love the arms and how the torso conects to the body .,. top notch top notch.

elhaz
03-18-2008, 09:44 AM
sweet drawings man:thumbsup: luv the tail and the helmet part. i have one suggestion though, it feels as if he is losing the silhouette of the head to all the crazy designs around the shoulder and torso. maybe have his head sticking out more? anyways, this is badass work, keep it up!

Maxter
03-19-2008, 12:01 AM

Walrus- Ei thanks for dropping by. Yea the torso. I gotta agree with it being to short.

QuantumPixel - Thanks man..looking forward to seeind more of your stuff too :D

Elhaz - Yup, agreed on the head. I initially wanted to give him like a dragon head and neck sort of design so that his head could pop out more so that the sillohuete would look better. But i thought that would make it look rather beast like... Thanks anyway. Appreciate that :D

Maxter- Thanks for dropping by :D

Updates.. Rough color on rough character. Trying my best to stick with CGS's colors and i must say its not that easy. Time is really running out, and hopefully i could pump out the orthographics for Garabath ASAP and get started with more finalised and detailed renders. I have yet to finalise the head still. Mainly the detailing, any ideas guys? :D Im really trying and hoping that my chracter doen not look too typical/generic. Im trying to stay away from making him look like the ussual big buff armored guy (no offence) but its just what i want to go for right now.. CHEERS guys!!

I really liked the one at the top page 5 with the banners on the shoulders and the cloth hanging down in the floating pose with the tail, If I could go back I would think that building that style of character would be the direction I would want to go.

its all looking really good tho, keep it up. 16 days left

I like how it's going, because it really resonates your tastes and liking--and for the first time ever appearing before the eyes of the many artists around the world.

And hey, it's the black-red scheme too!


Hope things at PF has been well, despite being busy.. i'll see you in a couple of months!

QuantumPixel - Never too late bro :D Thanks for the feedback btw..appreciate it!

bandro - I sure hope it does ><

More detailed design of the head to torso.. I'm working on the Orthogrphics now, and hopefully it's not too much of a pain. Oh, his um.. decorated pubic thingy should be the artifact that binds him to the huge organic arm suit thing.. I'm aware that it attracts quite a lot of attention but at this rate i'm not certain if it's a good or bad thing... o_O?

Man, you are too inspirational for me to put into words. Really, thanks so much for your kindness. I've basically put everything into my folder of infinite drooling. But enough ass licking.

What I like most are your options without branching too far away from your main idea. Really great. Im following you, i mean your thread.

Awesome style & design you got!
One question: "Are you a fan of Kazushi Hagiwara?"
When I see your drawings I'm very impressed!

Rezeroth
03-29-2008, 10:06 AM
jingudyi - Lol.. Five star stories style, ya i like love those works. I find the designs very stylish and exaggerated >< Thanks for dropping by man.

Hydelloon- Hey there thanks for dropping by. No im not a fan of Kazushi Hagiwara. To be honest im not sure what are his/her works. But thanks anyway.. :D

Alright guys.. deadline is extended. Good thing coz i have lots of office work at the moment too T__T but i'll definitely finish this the BEST i can.

Earlier today i was playing around with some montage of smokes to see if i can find anything inspiring. Slowly i found myself immersing in this, um...craze of creating the "soul" for Garabath. I though it could just serve as part of the story telling here in my thread and not for any finalised piece that im gonna hand in (but who knows). I thought that creating his soul in smoke forms would be nice and it helps to suggest more about him being more fire-ish as i intend to make a fire weapon artifact for him.. So making him out of smoke would prolly be wicked. (i hope) Since the begining of the war, i knew i had to design something more than just a cool looking dude. He's gotta have cool details nontheless but the form and structure is really important. I'm trying to make it look timeless, meaning ppl would still be able to see or find something new each time they look at it for years to come or at least till before the next war.. Oh well, enough of rambling. All the best guys!! CHEERS! (BTW, his face is not very visible so maybe u guys could just fill in the blank in yer heads haha..)

Oh god...you just reminded me of how little time i have left. I was still happily sketching *pulls hair

Yay to an update to Garabath! Though the orthographics are a bit difficult to read.. the profile view especially seems quite confusing.. perhaps either separate the arm, or give the body/arm more contrast? And for the front view for example, maybe you could make the cloth behind lighter to separate what is at the foreground and background?

The hand is interesting O.O All the best!


By the way...is it strictly a 1000 x 1000 px dimension for all the submissions? Can it be maybe 1000 x 800 or something of that sort? I've been looking around...

Calyx- Yeap i'll try to fix all that..if i can squeeze in my schedule..my winning pose is still pending T__T.. i dont think its strictly 1000x1000px but i just want to be safe..but my winning pose is not..coz of composition. Dunno.

There are max 1000x1000. so it mean that you can do 1000x700 or 700x1000, but not more then 1000px via both sides.

Well as we all know, the war is coming to an end. Seems like another small chapter of my life had just passed but not empty handed. I learned and gained so much and i could never get this anywhere else or any other way. Being apart of this war was truly an honour. To fight alongside with everyone here at CGS its been rewarding not to mention challenging too..So I came to my end with the winning pose of Garabath. End of War.. I salutes to all Brothers and sisters that came this far together and achieve something more than what we thought we could.Let us pray for the lost souls that could not make it and let us all rejoice for the wonderful,priceless experience that we all obtained along the way... I hope that i could fight this war the next time along side everyone here aswell and with some new recruits then ;)..

*Salutes!

Suhweeeet finish!! You suddenly gave me a kick on my butt to go faster...

Garabath looks friendlier than i thought though XD He looks more 'alive' too, if you know what i mean. Got to get back to Aveolae now!

Oh, hey, you managed to get it all done. Nice work! It's all nice, but I especially like the model sheet - so clean and it showcases all the detail on his body and his great silhouette really well. Great job!

Ay Walrus!! thanks for dropping by man! I really dig your final..the concept is really fresh and unique.. awesome man!! glad we are fighting this war on the same team.. *bows and salutes!

Yes!Great work and awesome character Rezeroth
In the winning pose the space between his left arm(for us) and his body is filled by almost the same color as his arm which makes it a bit more difficult to read.
Some parts of his body(his legs and esspecaily his leg near us, his arms) seems a tiny little bit less worked out as the central part of his body.
Maybe that's because you've used less outline here.

I like the way your outlines work with the colors and the fact for exemple you've used an outside-outline for the shoulders made him pop out more.
Maybe a subtil outside-outline all around him could make him pop out more.
That would be my 2 cents.
Great great work and another great warrior on our battlefields!!!
Good luck!

Great job there!! Wow, the details sure are INTENSE! The modelsheets seems a little overkill but the final picture, with the nice complementary combination of colors it did help a lot to define the details. Do you have a larger resolution of the model sheet? I really would like to see more details, especially on the head. : D I also think adding some particles aside from the glowing petals might help enhance the mood a bit, it looks slightly clean at the moment with just smokes.

Once again, beautiful work. Haha! You gotta do more works like this!!

Incredible work, man. Sorry for not comment before, but anyway, you it doesn't seem I could help in anything, your ideas for design and execution are fantastics. I hope you can stay among the winners in the 2d category. Congratulations for this quality job and for finishing your entry!

OKMER - Yes i agree with ya.. There's definitely problem here and there especially about clarity and readability T__T Thanks man!! Yes im still a sucker for painting with outlines so yup, i'm trying to look for a painting style that would compliment my lineart but not kill it..if ya get what i mean lol!

jingudyi - Thanks man! good luck to you too!!

JeffZugale - Badass yes.. i like attributes like that.. ;D badass/hardcore/exaggerated/cool lol... but i guess my final piece did make him look friendly :D

hampsty - Harlow girl crazy about hamster ;P thanks for dropping by..Really appreciate that. Yes most of the stuff are overkilled by details ever since the beginning..sigh..Failz.
Thanks for the comments and i am still learning alot from peeps like you and Calyx about color and painting so... *Bows LOL!! Been busy ay?

jramauri - Thanks man..thats way too flattering..Im still learning myself so i often see lots of mistakes in my work and hoping to work harder. Thank you so very much :D

Hey warrior Mun! :D

Well..yeah, Aveolae sure did, but i think your Garabath final colors...wow, you've improved a lot! You've been doing a lot of coloring back there now, aren't you :3

I've some nitpicks..but again, it could be just me so.. aips. To make him more menacing you could have given stronger lighting contrasts, and that you gave a backlit source it could have been very dramatic :) The tail could also be less sharp, and could do with more tones to suggests it is curving towards or away from the camera. I like the burning leaf things, but it looks quite..'soft', it could be more badass without it i think :D Perhaps sparks of fire or something of the sort to replace them.

All and all, still a strong entry..though in all honesty, i feel you could have pushed better than this >:)
Am still very proud of you, mate!

Waoh...Seriously. YOu are one bad-ass artist from our country..

Young blood is always surprising us!..

I really enjoy the final killer pose which you did.



Wish i can visit your studio someday... haha. Do arrange an opening day for your studio. I really wonder what kind of monsters is hiding inside the studio.

Good luck in the result!~..

Looking forward to your next artwork!

JediHindu- LOL! It was freaky indeed.. 2 months of war and not even in the running would be dissapointment.Not so much about winning or loosing. Just a sense of accomplishment i guess.. Im glad you made it in too man! It was really great to go through your thread as it was awesome to see the explorations and stuff.. Oh, Paul Richards is not with Raven anymore? and he's one of our judges.. LOL! This is really gonna be great!!
