Hi Everyone!

This is my second DW and I hope to improve my skills with all of your comments. I've decided to go with an abomination mutant type of character...I have a basic idea in mind but I wanted to explore silhouettes to see what might happen! Here's a sheet of small roughs I've been working on:



Let me know what you guys think and thanks for stopping by!

I like the one that looks like its pointing its meaty fist at the word "silhouette" down the bottom :D

Here's a bunch of rough ideas I want to incorporate into the demons...nothing too concrete at the moment, just exploring.

Last year I actually did a demon...Whoops! I didn't know they couldn't be demons but I learned a lot! Here's how he turned out...

Here are a couple of other demonic creatures I have been working on recently to hopefully spark some ideas!

I'll have some more refined character designs soon. Looking forward to your feedback and thanks for taking a look! :)

Holy crap! That was a cool demon you did! :) A bit shame you were year too early ;) Good luck this time.

Your final pieces are good, especially the first - love that armour (the other two are still good but could do with some tidying up). I'm not keen on the silhouettes because I think they look too tree-like but I like the centaur guy bottom left of the last lot of sketches. Good stuff, hope to see more.

Great thumbnails! Love the shape of your blade thumbnails, and the 4-armed one looks menacing. For the silhouette ones, I'm partial to the 2nd one in the bottom row for its unnatural asymmetry.

The demon from last year is really cool. I'm looking forward to see what you are going to do this year!

Thanks for the feedback so far...Let me know which ones you like!

Navigator Jones, Namnocilis: Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully this latest post will allow you to choose between them more clearly.
Martin Nielsen: Thx!
Baron Impossible: I appreciate your feedback...the tree like designs were mostly scribbles just to spark some ideas. Let me know what you think of these more refined concepts and thanks again! You work is amazing!
Nightblue: Thanks let me know what you think of these!

Awesome work! I love your Demon from last year.

#9 in your thumbnails is hilarious. It reminds me of a little devil baby.

I like seeing your character development sketches as well.

Great work, I love the way you show your idea development. I'd have to say that I like 7 & 14. They are the coolest designs to me. Looking forward to seeing more.

Great Work!
I love how you show the development. I like very much the asymmetry in all the thumbnails, I'm inspired to play with it in my own design.
Keep the good work!
Best

I really dig the demon in red. I hope the final piece for this challenge will have such movement in it. Looking great so far.

I'm probably the last person to find out about this program but i thought it might help my teammates in generating interesting shapes and sihouette studies. If you haven't heard of it the program is called Alchemy and can be found on their website: http://al.chemy.org/
Check it out!
Xillion: Thanks, I'll make sure to maintain the energy from the piece into my final.

You should attach this beast to a female warrior or a demonic overlord or so.
The chains in the hands this character controls this beast.
Just an idea ;)

I like the dynamics of his hand shaking the earth.

it's alright, but I'd like to see a more diverse character..your creature is cool but has a shit load of ridges and teeth/bones. maybe throw in some metal or mech parts, wires, chains, or whatever to balance it out..(just a thought).

Thanks for the crit...I did go a bit over board on the teeth and spikes!...I need to add more materials like you said...some metal or armor for sure to break up the textures.

DeadInTheAttic: I've been thinking about giving him a master or some kind of pet...thanks for the suggestion!

nellement: Thanks!

More feedback would be great, I'll have more characters to show soon!

ROBOTTANK
04-10-2009, 03:21 AM
hey, you know what would look cool and interesting is a pet that crawls under that face (left hand), and it could look like a bottom jaw or something..

vegasmike
04-10-2009, 10:14 PM
Here's another idea, a samurai like demon prince. Not sure if it's human/alien like enough to be called a prince so if not he's an abomination...Are you guys feeling this more than the others? Maybe he could ride the other guys back...

I do like it but this competition is way too flooded with characters that look like that (alike). Either, everyone has the 'same' idea or their spinning off one another. but yeah, it looks cool. great work man..

Yeah I'm having a hard time finding a unique angle for these guys...I'll keep plugging away until something really sticks, I have a feeling it will be a combination of all my ideas...thanks again for the feedback! Here's another quick rough of a centaur like demon.

I much prefer the last one, the centaur creature - I'm not a fan of monsters with their anatomy switched round but I guess that's just personal taste. The last one has a good stance and the antlers are cool (bigger = cooler in this case, I think). If it were me I'd add another three pairs of legs and give him half a dozen riders, but that's because I'm weird.

Hey B.I.
Thanks so much for your input...I'm really impressed with your work so far and your oppinion is greatly appreciated! Keep up the inspiring work...

I keep trying to find an original angle for these demons...it seems like the easiest way to go is to add more limbs or lots of eyes. I want to go for a parasitic/symbiotic thing...a combination of the ideas...

So heres an update...Im getting sick of this guy!

not bad dude, I really like this one, I also liked the centaur a lot. (this new guy could look interesting with those moose type horns)..

NavigatorJones
04-15-2009, 02:06 PM
I agree with ROBBOTANK - most people go for goat horns, or bull horns, moose horns are more interesting!

You have a lot of very strong character designs here. I find it hard to favor one over the other! Great work! Keep it up!

numabrush: Thanks man! I checked out your art blog...awesome work man, keep in touch and thanks for the feedback!

navigatorjones: Thanks, I think the moose horns are going to make it into the final...

robottank; Thanks...should have the final six concepts wrapped up soon, your feedback has really helped!

Here's an update on the centaur demon...let me know what you think!

Hi folks! I've been developing the Demon Characters and have set up six designs for consideration. Please let me know which of them you like.... or parts you like that could be included into the final character design. If you have a cool name for any of them I'm all ears and may use the name if you don't mind. Thanks for your help and feedback!

Thanks for the feedback NavigatorJones!

Ok guys! I took everyones feedback on Deviantart (plus NavigatorJones!) and tried to fuse all the best qualities from the concept sheet into one supreme demonic abomination. Here's a rough for an Abomination General...This is a commander of lower abominations and demons against the humans and mechs in the Dominance War. I want him to be a "boss" character who can destroy any foe, commanding respect despite his abominable status. He is a fusion of demons... His arm is a demon/dragon head with a hunger for blood and destruction. His Mount is a demon beast stitched to the torso of a fallen demon lord reanimated...he is undead and will attack until every last piece of him is defeated. Let me know what you guys think....still rough!
