Hope your all well! So about a week ago I decided to enter this contest but was drawing a blank on what to sculpt. I have always been a huge fan of Mile Teves concept for Darkness in the epic 80's fantasy movie Legend, so I decided to use that character for the competition. While I will deviate from Teve's original design, he gets full credit. I hope this is does not break any rules??
Anyhow, here is a shot of Darkness from the film to refresh your memories:http://http://s1058.photobucket.com/albums/t414/clappy71/?action=view¤t=Darkness-36.jpg
The story line is as follows (straight from Wikipedia) : "Once, long ago in a world of unicorns, fairies, goblins, and demons, the Lord of Darkness beseeches Mother Night for her protection, lamenting his isolation, exiled underground by an unseen force. He senses the presence of two unicorns who safeguard the power of light, and bids his goblin servant, Blix, to find and destroy them. They are to bring him the horns, to create a lasting darkness and ensure that sunshine never returns."
So I have completed the initial basemesh for the characters in Softimage and have started to sculpt in the anatomy ( I stress "started"). Here is the progress so far:

Next steps: get some clothes on this beast! Ooo and he needs some gangly gross nails...
