View Full Version : DWIV - 2D- jimsvanberg - demon prince

04-12-2009, 05:34 PM
Ok, hi all! This will be my first year to enter DW - I'm pumped ^^ I have decided o go with a demon prince and this is some head sketches. More updates will come of course. Good luck to you all!



I forgot to say so but the "smoke" from his head will be the death/darkness that he possesses. Also I have added some armor/costume sketches. But I have trouble finding something that looks original =/ All comments are welcome here! ^^

I have this idea of a half organic half metal armor with some cloth or leather, but more sketches will be added soon. Stay tuned!

Very cool man xD....
I like the side view... looks very good....Updates please!!

04-14-2009, 11:36 PM
Hey Jim,

Cool start, the sketches and concept look really nice. Like the smoke concept, cool touch for the idea :D Good luck and waiting for more updates!! Cheers! :beer:

Neat idea with the billowing smoke coming out of his head!

04-15-2009, 04:45 PM
Very good update!!!
Keep going xD...

In my opinion, i like the Study 3 from costume.jpg ( cool idea )
And the idea 1 , 3 and 5 from thumbs01.jpg too..

04-15-2009, 07:01 PM
Great start, seeing everyones posts is getting me really pumped for fleshing out my character even more.

I think that the smog head looks really neat, but im confused as to where the smoke would be coming from. perhaps if you had his eyes and mouth glow with some type of inner flame while they are open, like you can see the heat in front of them.

Keep it up, cant wait to see the next update!

Ok, so this is the head if I would choose to do a princess instead of a prince, not really sure yet. I have this idea that I think works better with a woman then a man (first thing in the morning I will sketch it down and post it here) We'll see tomorrow ^^

04-17-2009, 01:06 PM
Ok, so this is an idea for a demon princess that has an abomination as a mount, just standing on the poor bastard :P And controls it either by a) the power of death/darkness image to the left OR b) by chains in a marionette-kind-of-way - image to the left.

I feel this is the most original idea I have come up with... At first I wanted to do a prince but I don't really think this idea goes with a prince. Or does it? What do you think? a PRINCE or a PRINCESS??



04-17-2009, 03:55 PM
And this is the same idea with a PRINCE... Hmm now I just must decid... ^^ Nevermind the crappy pose, just taste the idea ^^


04-17-2009, 05:49 PM
Nice stuff.

I like the princess sketch. Here pose looks very good.
keep it up:beer:

04-18-2009, 03:37 PM
This is cool, I like how the prince/princess are stepping on the poor sod XD either/or is great, you could try doing the prince in a different pose or something, he looks a lil stiff atm, not as full of life as the princess :D

04-20-2009, 03:39 PM
Ok, I have almost decided for a silhouette, and that would be no1 from picture A here below. Big-ass shoulder pads with thin armor on legs and arm. No2 was almost the other way around.


04-20-2009, 09:38 PM
Ok, so now I'm getting somewhere. The shoulder pads needs some work, and I'm not happy with the wing design yet. Also, I don't really have any idea what to do about the pantie-area =/ Two seams like in picture B-2 doesn't really fit, but just skipping them like in B-4 is also not good. Hmm...


04-22-2009, 03:11 PM
An update on the weapon. Made of the same organic matter as most of her armor will be. And a flag with our logo on ^^ I wonder if this is enough or if I have to have the logo on her too... Hmm must check that out asap!

04-24-2009, 09:51 AM
Some face/head studies today. Will also start on the composition for the final image today. :)


04-24-2009, 06:54 PM
Hi, since the design of my character (I yet have to name it) is kinda done I have made three drafts for the final picture. Let me say a few words about them:

1) She is standing on the edge of a ravine, victorious. In the background the smoking leftovers of cities can be seen. In the foregound, the bottom of the ravine, we see hands either reaching up from the underworld OR cheering for her. In this pose she could raise the flag to the sky.

2) She is here riding her mount, an abomination that she has in chains. The landscape is snowy and battles are going on everywhere. In the foreground we see charging troopers (humans?) that are about to fight their last fight.

3) The background is simplified, just some shapes and colors. The focus is on the princess. And she has a (misplaced) pet with her ^^ Bunny? Instead of the pet she could be riding the abomination from picture 2).

Help me choose the best idea plz ^^ All help is rewarded with cookies!

Cheers! //Jim

hey man!!

The idea from the woman looks great too... i like the idea too from the body/armor design

About the pose... i think you can work more..xD ( my opinion =x )
Itīs a princess... so she is strong.... the scene 1 looks interesting in the environment
and i love the movement from the weapon and the hair...

can be a very good scene xD !

04-26-2009, 11:07 AM
Tnx for the coments man :) How are things going with your DW entry?

04-26-2009, 06:33 PM
Hmmmmmmmm... So I was thinking that maybe her powers would show not only through the head, but also through her hands and a little bit in the armor too, something like this sketch. But is it too worn out? Done too many times before?


04-27-2009, 07:26 PM
I have decided for a scene and this is the start of sketch, just trying to get the composition right before I make the sketch tidier.


04-30-2009, 09:42 AM

So this is kinda the final sketch for the main image, next up, color sketches and value sketch. :)

05-01-2009, 10:53 AM
Here are some color sketches I did last nite. All C&C are welcome :)


05-05-2009, 01:25 PM
nice concept...for the color...i prefer the 3, 6 or 9...prefer the effect of the purple nuance...

keep on Teammate!

05-05-2009, 01:53 PM
5 - depth , colors and contrast for my eyes are very good...xD

But i like the 1 , 4 and 10 too

05-05-2009, 08:03 PM
Thanks for your comments guys ^^ But I have decided to go with 12 :P But it will be better in the end. Here's today's progress. More tomorrow nite :)


05-06-2009, 12:06 PM
Looking really cool as always.. I also liked 3 and 6 the most but 12 will do ;)
Can't wait for the final detailing

05-07-2009, 08:41 PM
Tnx for watching mr ^^


05-08-2009, 06:29 PM
Ok, today's update, more tomorrow ^^


05-09-2009, 08:02 PM
almost there.... Not really sure about the red stuff...


05-09-2009, 09:15 PM
Very nice composition. Only one critic, the two soldiers in the front looks very small. Maybe some yellow instead of red will work better.
keep it up:beer:

05-10-2009, 12:49 AM
Hey Jim,

I love your concept its coming out nicely. Its very different from what i do. I don't have a lot of skill in imagination but you bring all out here.. I hope to see the final result.. gl to you man...

05-10-2009, 05:38 PM
Thanks guys :)

Here's todays update, nothing on the main picture today but a modeling sheet for the mount and the concept sheet. C&C are of course welcome :)



05-14-2009, 10:23 AM
