Hey everyone,

I'm a late starter here, this is my first time doing Dominance War. Below are some sketches as I'm trying to work out my designs; She is the Goddess of Eternal Darkness. I think it will be a challenge how I can pull this off, to paint darkness without hiding anything in the shadows. Should be fun!

I like the third on the top row, the way she's melting in and out of the darkness :D

Hey Angelo,

Nice start :) Like a lot your concept. Perhaps yo can add a big black cloak to your character for emphasis on the darkness, only a silly idea :D Good luck and looking forward for more updates. Cheers!!

Nice concept! Illustrating your god in a battle against a god of light or anything gives light, could help us to see him/her and also his/her power. Just an idea! I agree that top row-third sketch is the best.

Oh man, being left in the dust here. There are some good ones that are really coming out already.

I think for mine, I had to incubate in my head for a while; I really just couldn't pick a harder topic, lol. Although some of your comments and ideas have been brewing in my head as well. I think the only way that I can pull this off tastefully is to obviously not make the obvious decision and paint everything black. What it will have to be, is to focus on lightplay, making sure that her silhouette will read, use black as a color and not as a shade (obviously).This will be interesting in the next few days and I'm already coming up with a plan of attack. Her design will develop as I go through this illustration.

Also attaching some reference ideas; don't really want to illiterate her whole description. I think if I have to come down to explaining her concept in words, I would've failed as an artist, ha!

Thanks for the comments guys!

Spent some time on this project. I think tomorrow, I will have to sit down and come up with a better plan of attack. Nothing about this just says Goddess of Eternal Darkness just yet. I think the pose is not appropriate, neither is the lighting and composition. Still somewhat in the comfort zone, hopefully I will break that tomorrow. I have a pretty good idea of where I can take itů

Working on redesigning this gal, trying to go for a creeper factor.
