The God of the Sea! I'm going to start the challenge by creating a painted concept to base my final character on. Here is the sketch I've developed for Poseidon. I'm going to post the painted concept in the coming week. Feel free to post any comments or critiques.

cheers, enjoy.

I've decided to take my concept for Dominance War in a new direction. I realized i needed to go more toon/humorous with my character. It just suits my personality to make if funny. SO, I gave the "God of the Sea" a receding hair line and a strap of "ninja throwing star fish" along with a "jelly fish shooting gun". Yeah, pretty sweet. Chip in with your own ideas to add to this character I'd love to hear what you guys think!

Nice one Klaus! I like the new direction. Maybe you could incorporate a Swordfish/Narwhal designed dagger instead of a plain knife somehow?

Your new design sounds really fun and it probably won't be breaking the rules like your first one.

"Additionally, NO real/known gods (Allah, Brahman, Elohim, Jesus Christ, Waheguru, etc) or current fantasy gods (from Dungeons & Dragons, etc) can be used for this challenge. You must invent a God from scratch and from your imagination."

Just don't name him Poseidon.

The angry starfish are great, those should definitely be in the final model.

thanks for the tip CrimsonKing001! Do you know how to change the name on the thread?

I love the idea for the sword fish dagger! I need to keep sketching some silly weapon ideas, I'll post some updated sketches on his weapons soon. Here is the start on his base mesh.http://plaidklaus.com/dropbox/God_of_the_Sea-01.jpg

Just ask an admin/mod to change the title (pm him)
And I'm really happy you changed the design because this looks like real fun :D
I also love the funny concepts like ninja throwing star fish, etc.
Can't wait to see more

Thanks Zykras! Does it matter which Admin? I don't really know any of them personally.

I'm excited about the new directions as well.

I asked "Kirt" to change my title because he opened the threads for this Dominance War but I guess you could ask any admin (Just tell him what to change and link your thread in the pm)

good illustration pal! ... just to say, maybe you can rescue the trident in a shape of bayonette for the main gun of this god.

PEace.

Not a bad idea on the trident, I'll have to try to see if I can work that in. Thanks!

Had a little time to model today. I knocked out the hands and side fins. I'm up to around 3,000 tris so far. Not too bad, but I could probably save a few in the hands perhaps, I may need them. I'll post more later.

Harr very cool illustration. I really like how the old man with the fork turned out so far. :D Imho he still needs something on his head, in this case maybe a head-sucking octopus :D

Here is an update of the character model. I've blocked out the fish and tools, but he still needs a gun. Going into Mudbox soon and posing him up!

I fell in love with Mudbox once again. I'd been using Zbrush for a while, due to it being what I had access to software wise. Now that I'm teaching I got a free copy of Mudbox (after not having used it for 2 years). HOLY COW! That program has leaped MILES ahead of Zbrush in simplicity and tool scope. It is by far the leader in my opinion. Anyway, I just spent about an hour or two getting my feet wet in the program. I'll try to push this model a lot in the following week!

hope you guys dig the update.
