Hi everybody!

Since the concept idea is so general. I have hard time with deciding which god of ... i should go. So im going to make some fast paintings to wander around. I have trouble of keeping simple sketch "simple" at the start(then i got bore or ideas i have wont satisfy me then i know i need to be more fast XD ). So i might touch up idea sketches a bit more than usual so my apologies.

First strike!

god of death or decay or somethin

God of death 2 ( or war?)

Hi all;

Well it looks like a mediocre design but with detailed design, aggresiveness and with more muscularity, It might look good. i think ill do a fast to see... more fast than this one >___<

Oh wow you work fast! That's a great painting!

His right arm is too long though and the knee armor design is too simple I think.

I love the chains! How did you get them to turn into perspective? I have chain brushes, and I set them to "direction", but they just follow the direction while lying flat on top of the image. If I want them to turn into perspective, I have to select parts of them and use the transform functions on them.

How did you do it?

Thank you!

Maybe his ankle area a bit long, Since i didnt use any refs i make mistakes a lot like that :\ needs more practice. Agree with the knee armor and the general. I like the helmets simpleness maybe shoulder a bit too but in general armor is too simple for a god ofc or thats the general idea now. Well kratos was a god after all with naked body but i think i should exclude it from this...

Dude chains are flat :D . Mine set to the direction too. Only stuff i did was Masking the chain for opacity so marking that the chain is behind more than other chains and making the chain surround from behind not front. That might not make much sense tho since my english sucks every now and then ^^ ,
But you can set size jitter for pressure and use brush or pen tool to fake perspective scaling. Hope that helps.

Oh and ive used bevel and emboss just tiny bit. like %6 opacity or something. Cheers!

Another god of death Sketch, Always a fan of eva proportions ^^ . This was actually my first idea. Now i may mix first and last design together in a sense of way and yeah i skipped mediocre god of war cuz i got this vision you see. Any comments and critics are greatly appreciated!.

Nice butterflyish character! I like the eyes in his wings. Looking forward to see your final illustration. Keep it up, good luck!

btw. 5th sketch is my favourite also (and 4th, it's the same guy i think)

DeathMetalDan
04-20-2011, 06:43 PM
#5 is probably my favorite, but maybe not the most original among your concepts. It looks like you'll make a pretty sweet character no matter which you choose, so good luck!

Akiman
04-21-2011, 08:29 AM
Hi all!

ersinerturk; Yep thats influenced from butterfly ^^ . Very short life span of some butterflies is makes kinda nice irony too. Yeah i like 4th 5th too. But feedbacks kinda not appeared so i had to base on previous reply feedbacks and my friends. :(

DeathMetalDan: Thanks Dan :) Good luck to you too!

Hey you are full of cool ideas and sketches :D Like your approach for a god of death, but maybe you need to put a bit more personality in the character, only a comment :). Good luck and waiting for more updates. Cheers!! :D

I like the character, reminds me of Mothman. One thing, I think the tone is a bit dark to see the details, perhaps some reflected light would help. Nice work, keep it up.

Akiman
04-22-2011, 03:00 PM
Hi all;

Ferx: Thanks ferx! i try to ^^. İ could add more personaliy but that might end up being too cartoonish even now it kinda looks like. But im going to beauty shot cause im out of ideas while doing sheet work. Maybe i might come along with good ideas while making beauty shot. Only back side left anyways.

opsite: Thank you! I hope its unique too even though ive no idea about it :) . One thing i dont like about color tone is the god is black so its becoming harder to detail while holding the dark mood.

BaronImpossible: Thank you! I dont know about mothman :( . Yeah tone is dark maybe my monitors alpha is too bright. I might have to check. What gamma are u working with? . I'm scared bout reflected lights... I've tried to make details because of how big this guy is but ending up a painting too complex and hurts the eye, Feels like i dont know where to look . Im kind of stucked there... Any ideas? Btw ure work is very impressive gl in the contest ^^

Hi Atilgan,

I see you started on the 6th design. I also like the 5th design but its your preference that makes it good. The background needs to be added then you have something almost complete. Looks very unique and wicked, can't wait to see more take care for now.

Akiman

Jesus; I actually try to complete the clean one ^^ but ill try to put some dirt on it :)

Love how the city is looking , color is pretty dramatic too, but I think the smokes are pulling to much attention from the god maybe if you fade them a bit, just a suggestion .

The value really strengthen your composition, but I'm a bit worry about the saturated blues you have in the sky, the color seem too cheerful. The previous painting where you have those faint blues, I think that palette works better. And if you have more space to the left, it'll help your composition to have more "breathing" space.

Well done, you almost reach the finishing line. I'm just at the beginning. :surprised

Hi Akiman, I really like what you're doing with the bg now, looks great, nice contrast, looks evil!
How are you going with your character sheet?

Akiman
05-08-2011, 11:27 AM
Hi Randize ; Thank you :) i tried to darken them a bit. See if that helped. Maybe i should desaturate them a bit too.

Hi jsn ; Thank you :D . I had started to paint back of the character but now ive focused on beauty shot. I'll start on back today. I think i'm about done with the beauty.

They all look really nice ! My only suggestion would be (maybe) to seperate the background and the main char a bit more in the illustration.Maybe desaturating the distant objects or adding some fog would help.
Again, i love the first image in the workflow sheet ..especially the colors of it. Good luck !

like your works, the light cycle behind the god is very special design. Carry on.

PavelSokov
05-13-2011, 05:37 AM
Oh man, this is beautiful!

I love the depth, the scale, the volume, and I especially love the dynamicism of the debris, wind, light and the fire.

Gotta love the fire on top of the ring! And the god rays are a nice touch too!
I agree with the previous Poster, it can't hurt to select the background and try and see how it looks less saturated.

Akiman
05-14-2011, 10:31 AM
yigit; Thanks yiğit! I'll try to do something about it ^^.

Echolee0515; Thank you! Thats kind of a Halo, to make a relation with the god concept from a far and hes using it for changing dimension. But i couldnt put it anywhere. Character sheet too small as it is already imo. Thanks for coming by ^^.

PavelSokov; Thank you! Sure ill try to desaturate them a bit in a few days.

The god of death?! when i saw him, he sent chills down my spine!
This is literally the apocalypse.
Even if i prefered one of your previous design, this one is really well done too.
And from my point of view the colors tone of the team are obvious on the character sheet.
So i think you did a good job :thumbsup:
