well... I`ll start then.
hi all, I am a newbie here, I am in not for the prize or something, I just want to learn a lot from you guys, so comment and critique are much welcome...

Latest:
Final touch 3.0, added some detail on cloth and the sword.......

http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs45/f/2009/123/b/8/b8f15498eabc1032069ce84fa68764b8.jpg





here is some ideas that flies over my head, some demon prince with brute strenght that can break anything, include any anti-demon seal or magic, he is holding two big weapon in his hand, I am planning to make him a beast minnion pet XD

the concept:
Aranos was a one of demon prince who get through from the dimension hole, aranos was human who cursed by a great mage in the ancient time because he tries to broke the God law, to be a most perfect human in the whole midgard, in other word, he tries to be a new God in midgard, and so, seven great wizard fought him and when the 7th day come, Aranos was defeated after killing the other 6 wizard, the last wizard, put three seal in his chest and curse Aranos to be something Inhuman and powerless and send him to another dimension, but instead, Aranos became a Humanoid demon, (this is the reason why Aranos still having many human characteristic) the wizard doesnt have enough power to curse Aranos to be some brainless stupid creature, but the three seal did make Aranos quite powerless for some thousand year.

When the Dimension door was broken, it also makes Aranos`s seal broken, and then Aranos regain his 30% power (that power is enough to destroy 5 earth in one single blow) and then broke through the dimensional gate to get revenge to the Human race ( bonus: machine race will be destroyed too)

Aranos`s magic power is still sealed, but he has a massive monstrus strenght in exchange, and then Aranos modified his muscles and body shape, so that his half human-demon body can use the massive demon strenght, for example ,huge palm and foot, and some extra muscles in the torso and some other place.

Your sketch style for the concept is very nice and those twin axes look nasty. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of those...

Good luck! :)

Still sketching for looking a good shape, I like the head shape, I put the emblem in the head because its suits him, rmm... but maybe I`ll make another option or sketch for the emblem / head, and I need some more tweak on the armor..... maybe I`ll draw more sketch...later

nice second armor...but maybe look a little too much like the world of warcraft armor tier set.

continue on this way you rock!

wenart

yes, I use the warcraft style for brainstorming on armor lol, actually this is my frist time using this way, maybe I should back to my old style T_T

excellent design bro. Keep it up. he surely look badass.

IMHO aku pikir mgkn lbh baik klo desain awalnya ga terlalu detail/tight kaya gitu. soalnya buat progressingnya mgkn bakal lebih susah krn room buat explorenya udah makin dikit krn smuanya dah detail. ehehe just my opinion.
ama aku pikir DW lbh berat fokusnya ke pengkonsepan karakter drpada finishingnya. jadi bisa dimanfaatin bgt bro bt maksimalin konsep desainnya lbh matang.

wenart
03-18-2009, 06:04 AM
its ok, dah kebiasaan cara kerja gini soalnya :p
en ini bukan finalnya, masih terbuka untuk perubahan2 kan dah dijelaskan hehe, dibuat detail2 soalnya enjoy nya tersendiri waktu bikin detail2, hehe..

Nice start. Good exploration. The head armor looks like it's part of him. Try some roughs with that applied to the rest of the body. See if you like that direction. Good Luck.

Great design! I love the organic armor and insane level of detail. My only critique is that the design for the back looks way too much like the original Doom's Cacodemon. It's the first thing that came to mind when I saw it. I figured I'd give you a heads up before you take your design further.

This is the guy I'm talking about:

03-18-2009, 10:25 PM
Working fast! Yep, this looks great, no crits (apart from, practically speaking, I hope he picks up his robe before running else he'll fall flat on his face)

Digiegg
03-18-2009, 10:26 PM
daymnnnn dude... that looks sick!
only thing I would say is that the should armor could use some edge.
Like have it flare up like the other designs you had. I think it makes a great balance on that design.
I love it though. great job

wenart
03-19-2009, 01:04 AM
@fdiskart: many thanks :) I never played doom before, but when I googling it, yups, there is some similarity with the things, maybe I should edit it

@baronimpossible: many thanks, anyway XD I am sorry btw what is "picks up his robe" mean? sorry my english is bad T_T

@digiegg: many thanks XD

Super cool! Yeah, Simon is right, the front robe/cloth would make running difficult. Maybe it could be shorter, or placed on the side so that it doesn't bother. Minor crit anyway.

Can't wait to see the axe design. All sketches have been brilliant!

oh I see >.<; I get it now, thanks, yups, maybe that robe is a little bit too long for running, exept if he flies or something XD, thanks for the critique :D

crazy details youve got going here mate ^^
nice stuff:thumbsup:

rubbergumlovinbear
03-19-2009, 07:21 PM
wow, this design is great. I totally enjoy your attention to all the details and the armor design.
it's hard to pic a specific weapon as all of them look badass, but I think the swing axe fits your concept best - as a demon he should somehow act/behave a bit snake-like if he is wearing this logo on the forehead...
i'm looking forward to see more!

Gyorkland
03-19-2009, 07:38 PM
I would use the sword axe, make it dual and add them a huge razor on the bottom so he could make some sort of power wave with them, besides it would create a nice shape when holding them down, but thatīs just me.
Looking great by the way the weapons, all of them.

Abarsai
03-19-2009, 07:56 PM
Hey Wenart!

I love how your developing this concept! I would love to see it as a 3d model :)

As for the weapon ideas, I really like the Dual Hand Axes, especially if their scale were very large!

My other preferences would be the axes. They seem fitting for your sharp silhouette of Aranos!

just my 2 cents! Keep up the great work!

Ben,

03-19-2009, 08:05 PM
I like the work you've done so far, my only crit would be the lower body. A lot of people are commenting on the robes, but I think you should re-think the legs as well. He looks like a dangerous guy, but with HUGE feet like he has, he wouldn't scare anyone trying make his way around!

Keep up the good work!

wenart
03-20-2009, 12:37 AM
@Abarsai: many thanks, but my 3D skill is zero XD, double hand axe... ok one vote for it XD

@Gyorkland: many thanks, some razor in the back is a good idea...one for it too XD

@yakonusuke & kblackwd : many thanks :)

Updated the weapon:

Dark Ygdrassil, is one of Aranos creation once he was a human, he tries to exchange the old ygdrassil that maintain the balance of the earth with the new one, but since he was defeated, that artificial yggdrasill is useless now, but Aranos still can use it as his weapon, because its have a big magical power, its a good weapon since Aranos magic ability is sealed.

Cool stuff going on here, that's one massive dude. I like the flow in his armor.
Sword looks cool, but maybe the blade could be more interesting, intricate patterns and so on? Just a thought.
Oh and when I look at the front view, it kind of looks like the face of a cat in his chest. :p

Keep it up! :buttrock:

03-24-2009, 12:58 AM
Hi! Very cool stuff... I think you do have a well done design, and well thought out forms and composition. Though he doesnt really look alive, his muscles and limbs just doesnt look natural, flexible or movable. Might just be me really, but thats my gut feeling. Kind of couldnt tell if his chest is bare or if its the actual armor. But hey its a demon prince right, i guess they can look a bit how they like. I'll be fun to see how you proceed with this. Keep up the good work!

many thanks XD yups the body muscles and limbs are totally abnormal, I already explain it in the concept in the first page, this chara modified his own body, the chest part is bare, maybe its look like armor because I sketch it using pencil without using opacity >.<;, sorry, my bad :(

Nice choice on the colors and the background fits well and at the same time doesnt take away from the character at all.

Hello dude. First of all, great work :)

I just think that the character is a bit too "classical". I mean that he's a bit like a "sargeras like" or something like that :l

In my opinion, you should add more little details who can give to this character more impressive personality :) I'm not saying that your character isn't cool, that's not the point and it's only my opinion :p

I don't know if I'm clear xD

04-16-2009, 06:03 PM
I hadn't realized you were already into colouring Wenart, it's coming along very well. If I might suggest, some cooler tones in the background could help to balance the pallette a bit and create some contrast with the foreground.
Keep it coming!
