Hi there,
I'll try to work on a demon prince with dark/death power... I still don't have a clear idea but it's time to start so here's my first doodle :)

Comments and crits are welcome.

I love where it's headed. Especially the shoes, maybe go some kind of "twisted hell sultan" style?

NH
03-17-2009, 08:27 PM
Yinn you got it... I was thinking to create a sultan/pacha design inspired by the orientalists paintings. I'll also create a harem for him.
Cool cool ! I am so glad you saw my intentions :)

A little update with levitation and less fat.

I really like it, he has a very evil and sadistic look. He draws up on the idea of a classically evil demon and the idea of a mysterious oriental lord of some sort.

Maybe once you start going more in depth you can do some interesting things with some kind of tattoos or something like that, because I think if he had some armor or dress on his gigantic body it might take something away from it, but if it was just his stomach with nothing else it might get boring.

Keep up the good work, I'm excited to see what it looks like later

Yeah the stomach would be blad with nothing but dont cover it up I think, maybe you could have runes glowing though the skin, as if he's ate them.

And you oculd have him sitting on a palanquin, with demoning servants carrying him would show his position of power more.

yeah thats an awesome idea, if you could pull off like seeing the victims he has eaten through his skin somehow that would be amazing

SpecArs4 and Kharn-ivor , thank you guys for these good ideas.
I agree with your idea of keeping him with no armor... About the tatoos/runs you are right too, but I think I'll go for something more oriental like "henna".
I will also work on his sadic and vicious side... I think I'll develop a female side of him, a travesti... I also think it would be intresting to have this kind of ambiguity visible on/around him, a mix between Androphilia ang Gynephilia...
I will add some further details very soon :wip:

Thank you guys, cheers

Nice job, I think a bit of dapery or jewelery would bring out his character more. He seems like he would be indulgent enough to drape himself in wealth. Good lucK!

Hi there, here is a little update. I worked on the face to make it more human and tried to develop the female and sadistic side of the demon ( some make up on face etc ...). I also inflated him more than before. I think I'll work on a character that can't walk so I can exaggerate fat on him ( maybe only levitate or just need to be carried to move from a place to an other or both, it's still not clear on my mind...). A lot of ideas that I didn't had enough time to develop, I'll probably go further this weekend when I'll have some free time :)

Love the fat man. Maybe make him like Baron Harkonnen from Dune - he was pretty fat and levitated all over the place.

NH
03-19-2009, 08:19 PM
@Chachi: sure ! Drapery or jewelry will come very soon I already have some ideas, i'll post them as soon as I can. Thanks a lot for you support and advices.

@Intervain: Thank you, I really want to make something different that common demons... I hope I'll succed. thanks again

@SpecArs4: Yeah it's called Henna in arabic at least, stay tuned for more oriental stuff :)
thanks for your advices and support.

@solblomma: You are welcome ! Don't hesitate to criticize too. Thanks

@BaronImpossible: Man you damn' right ! A mix between Baron Harkonnen and Jabba will fit perfectly to my demon, I'll try to develop this... Thanks ! Oh I like the good job you are doing with your character :)

SpecArs4
03-19-2009, 08:19 PM
Very cool, i think i like the original face though, this one seems a little to harmless to me compared to the original one

good luck!

Yone
03-19-2009, 08:38 PM
Great demon concept.

I love the very decadent look he has. It would be great to see him floating with a body that is just to heavy to seem believable. I think that you need to make him a bit more decadent and evil. He has got an air of Jabba the hunt.

Looking forward for more posts.

Hi, this is a speed 3D sculpt of the demon to help me visualize the face better. This a "human" version, I'll try to create an other beastly one, I'll probably make some changes on the horns too... I still don't know how but I'll give it a try :)

Comments and crits are welcome

NH
03-22-2009, 11:43 AM
@SpecArs4: I am still not sure with the face, but I think it's important to keep some human properties on him... I' am trying to find a balanced level between human/beast design. Thanks a lot mate !

@Yone: you are right ! More evil would be great, I am working on this. As I said before to my mate BaronImpossible I am trying to mix between Baron Harkonnen from Dune and Star wars Jabba the hunt. I think it could be interesting. Thank you for your support !

@Ferx: Heu Ferx thank you for your support mate! I need some tequila to work faster :D
Cheers mate :beer:

@whiterat: Hahaha... Meatloaf!!! you damn' right hahahaha I didn't saw it ! Thank you for your support :)

Thanks again ! :)

03-24-2009, 06:11 PM
Nice concept! me too liked the levitation idea.. suits perfectly for this character, i can imagine this character being in air and just moving his head from left to right and if he would have been a demon lord then he could have summoned some demons by just blowing the smoke out of that hookah kind of thing.. :wise:

Great going.. Nice sculpt of the head and among those face sketches, 3rd one is good but i also liked those interesting antenna kind of thing on his head.. was wondering what it might be :curious:

Hi ! This a speed lighting test. I added the first harem girl too.
The demon is still not the final one, I'll probably start working on jewelry and tatoos and add some other girls then I'll back on the demon character design.

C&C are welcome

NH
03-26-2009, 06:29 PM
@namnocilis: Thanks mate ! About the strange antennas :) It was a try with some encent stick on the head. Don't ask me why because I don't know. It was a strange idea that came to me from nowhere... :D Cheers

@StefanoDubay: HAHA don't worry my friend, the logo will be there ! :twisted:

Like Intervain i'm not fan of the shoulders pads. I think you can only wear him with tissues and jewels, just my mind ^^

Ferx
03-27-2009, 09:58 PM
Hey Nabil,

Really cool updates! :D you are working hard for sure , great!! Agree with the shoulder pads, and I miss the horns of your previous versions, perhaps yo can give a try again with that type of cloths and jewels. If you can, search for Moebius (Jean Giraud )concept art for "Dunes", really inspiring artist ( one of my favs :D) he has a incredible touch for outfits and cloths, maybe can be useful like reference, only a comment :) Great work and waiting for more updates! Cheers!! :beer:

NH
03-29-2009, 10:49 AM
@neobear : thanks mate :) shoulder pads are gone :D

@ferx : Hey buddy thanks for the advice, I already studied the references of the big master Moebius, he's an an source of inspiration for me too.
Giraud's design are inspired from this culture with a SF touch. My goal is a little bit different I'll try to design real oriental stuff directly based on my childhood memories and my north african culture ... my designs will also be based on the orientalistes paintings...
Cheers buddy :beer:

All crits and comments are apreciated !

solblomma
03-31-2009, 09:32 PM
Personally I would go for A or C.

Those have the most characteristics of something that is not a necro-undead-skeleton demon, which I think is a pretty fresh take on the whole demon-thing. #C has a bit of a pig/swine-feel to it as well, which would be suitable for a guy with that kind of body.

Good work!

Hey! Yay, sweet. I use to have a thing for drawing fat creatures, soo much fun! :) Maybe i need to pick that up again.. Anyway, cool stuff so far. I like the full figures that are more simplyfied more than the ones with lots of smaller curves. I think you succeded in doing the bigger shapes better that the smaller curves. Maybe use some reference if your not already doing that and be a bit careful of overdoing the smaller shapes. I think the last face designs you did was quite good, though still a little bit goofy, but its on the right path definately! ;) Keep up the good work, looking forward to see this awesomely fat guy developed further!

Hi, I started working on Iblees's (the final name) spell of death... I already added in some of my sketches some arabic calligrams, I'll push it further soon with more floating words around him.
The most important one will be the one above his head. It will sometimes indicate his thoughts and some times his feelings (yep this demon has feeling :) )
This calligram is the way to keep dominance on his slaves in order to maintain them under his control... a kind of powerful hypnotic spell that is enough dangerous to kill when prince Iblees wants to.

DeadInTheAttic

Really painful. But a nice idea and a focus on our team.

My first thought was about some devils of the game "Dungeon Keeper", fat, nasty creatures. Ugliness outta hell ;)

Perhaps you might setup something like a cell or temple in which this one is hanging 'round. You might also use some chains additionally, which pull his legs, stomach and so on.

NH

Hi, here's a new update. I came back to the horns, added some harem girls and I started modifying the clothes of Iblees... and I came to a new version with a huge fat on the floor. Actually it's a mix between my first sketches and the latest version of my demon. I still don't know if I will keep it or not.
What do you think folks? A or B ?

corspufo
04-14-2009, 09:49 PM
actually, I think I liked it a little more without the horns. The normal head gives you the human relationship, while the grotesque sagging fat says evil. I think it speaks more to the viewer than adding horns. Also, more hooks and chains would not be amiss. I know you're going for symmetry at the moment, but it's almost TOO symmetrical. I like the idea (fat anythings are always cool) and I'd love to see this to the end. Keep it up.

Hey my friend. Thank you so much for the feedbacks. It was really useful. :D You are so right and I will do what you said. You encouraged me and made me sure about my first sketches because I was'nt really sure about the new concepts and reactors!!! :))



And about the iblees! I think the A pose is better than others. because it has a floatin feeling in the air like a JINN in my mind! Oooo! I can read the arabic word: "JINN"! It can be useful for spelled weapons! :D But for more fatness, use more round shapes and fat wrinkles for the body and neck and other parts, Make them more bigger with more fat :P:D;)
And the camel is so original! But make it more fat for more harmony with fat iblees.

I prefer your latest concept over the others, I really liked your hyena creature a lot, but I also like your mutated camels, keep up the great work man.

Tres sympa comme taff!

Looks really nice I like the idea of character, tattoo etc...

Your camel concept looks nice. Also it looks like this big piece of skin is pretty heavy and make him unbalance.
I will for sure dig the concept. Camel is such a funny and great design animal as it is that I am sure if you push it further you will end up with something amazing.

Bon courage!

hey NH nice concepts. a very narrative character.:thumbsup: If you would make those animals extremely skinny, your fat dude would become even fatter and your scenario more grotesque..

good luck

Hello

the concept is cool, your drawing skills are awesome, and the last one has so very much atmoshpere.
But i wouldn't set him into the desert. Maybe some kind of basar would be nice, on the streets lots of corpse and between them the last survivors, who knee in anxiety and awe for him.

so long

It looks cool but I think I'd like to see your character in a different setting (not the desert, if he's in the desert), I'd also like to see his arms relaxed, maybe holding a staff or something. Why is he holding his hands out? (just curious)

@MR: haha some Dali style ? I could be a nice idea yeah ! I'll think about it.
Thanks for your support dude :beer:

@ DarkBlueArt: thanks buddy for your kind words :)
Your suggestion of the bazar is really interesting but the corpses and all the staff around would take more time to paint :D... anyhow I'll think about it ;)
Thanks again ! :thumbsup:

Hey Robottank good to see you on my thread again :)
About the hands he is holding them out like this to attack his ennemies... it a kind of invocation. He join his hand to have the henna cgs logo launch his death spell.
I already doodled a little thing about the henna tatoo :)

About the desert... I am still not sure but I will see if I have enough time to design an other environement.

Thanks buddy for following my work and for your advices :beer:

It's looking good. A pity we can't see more of the fat man but the alien camel things are great so there's no lack of interest. I like the reflected light from the sand, that's the sort of nice touch that can elevate a painting.

A couple of things. The stance of the main camel-thing. There's something wrong with the positioning of its front right leg (to our left). It's too far back and bent in like that makes for instability. It's probably meant so that it's taking a step, in which case a well-placed shadow darkening might make things better, although I'd try angling it out more and bringing it forward.

Also, each of the small camels is positioned equidistant from the main one. It makes the composition look a bit artificial.

Coming on great, though.

Hey BaronIpossible you are right, my wife also told me the same thing, I didn't placed the shadow yet but even with a good shadow on the right leg I think that I'll probably modify it a little bit to make it work better :)
About the small camels you are right too, I'll fix this soon... I am thinking to add more camels and maybe a kind of army ... so I'll for sure change this.

Thanks a lot for theeese precious comments and suggestions :thumbsup:
Cheers buddy :beer:

Wow! I can see the warm colors. Nice start for the illustration.
The mood of color is the first thing that I can imagine. But I think we should try another things about our works. I always think like that! But about this piece I'm not sure! Because it has an eastern and hot desert atmosphere. But if you have the time try another colors like blue or some light yelloe with white .... That's just a suggestion. :D Not necessary!
But this is the color that every one expect about the concept ;):thumbsup:

And I just can say thank you so much for the supports and feedbacks. they really help me :D cheers

nice composition, although it doesn't seem to focus on your character, but rather a group of gatherers passing through, or an army of some sort. I like your character a lot and I wish I could see more of him and less of that camel creature. Your character is huge, but seems rather small in the compositions entirety. I think I liked your first color version better, only because the camel is smaller, character looks bigger and the image seemed more focused on him.

Very cool your last image, I really prefer when your caracter is floating in the air. It is unexpected for this king of character.
I hope you will still finished you image. Good luck

I still like your first composition the best of the three, this new one doesn't display your character very well..

Hey dear Nabil. How it's going my dear friend?
This is very dynamic and I'm agree with robotank and maybe a little more zoom to see the JIN in better view or direct your attention on the JIN and fade the back a little more. But the time is short. What about the final illustration? I really want to see the completed one.
Keep it up my dear friend.
Best wishes:
Alireza
