04 April 2005, 11:06 AM
what's up dude,

cool sketches. Ooh, action scene... i love it. Your piece has a lot of potential to have a really nice mood and expressive gesture. Keep it coming. I'll keep my eye on this.


04 April 2005, 08:30 AM
just stoppin by to see the progress!:D
it'll be great! keep up!
tx for viewing my thread!:)

04 April 2005, 04:09 PM (

Just finished the main characters concept! still have to do secondary characters and background final sketch...

04 April 2005, 04:54 PM
Funny- I was looking at your image at almost the exact moment you were posting on my thread
I really like your drawing, you have a nice way with the pencil (can't think of a cool way to say that). I'm curious how you'll paint it, I'll be checking back.

04 April 2005, 05:11 PM
This is looking cool!! Although his left shoulder/arm seemed alittle out of alignment?

THE Wizard
04 April 2005, 05:49 PM
OK, this looks good, but I think you should make guy's shoulders a little more wider... You know give him more muscles and that'll turn him into the kick - demon - ass - slave... Girl's fiiiine:twisted:

04 April 2005, 05:59 PM
nice sketches, i like this piece. and i also think that making the shoulders wider could work pretty well. it would make him more dynamic and more powerful. and im not sure about his right knee (left side of the picture) maybe it should be more to the left (our left) and also the foot of the same leg. but that depends on the ground you are going to put there.
good luck!

04 April 2005, 04:14 PM
thanks to all for your comments, people u pointed out good stuff...
that left shoulder doesn't look good!

04 April 2005, 06:17 PM (

Final concept. lets see if i can finish this...

04 April 2005, 06:23 PM
oooh...this is looking interesting with the background. Dude, can't wait to see this in colour and what kind of lighting you are going to use. Now i'm excited... keep it coming.


04 April 2005, 08:02 PM
Hey man, Thanks for posting on my site... I was hoping that people could relate to my concept and get a good laugh out of it. I like your concept too! I can't wait to see the colors!


04 April 2005, 09:18 PM
:drool: O desenho está mesmo lindo!
I agree with the others - colors and light will make it a beauty!

Good luck!:thumbsup:

THE Wizard
04 April 2005, 10:04 PM
OK this is looking good, but there's just one little thing I think you should keep an eye on. The girl looks to calm, like there's nothing going on, and on the other hand her servant is all pumped up and ready for battle. So my point is that I think that you should change a little body expresion or facial expresion of a girl...

04 April 2005, 12:18 PM
cant wait to see it coloured, she looks as nothing can harm her.. she's powerfull! i love it!!:applause:

04 April 2005, 03:37 AM
Isto é só pessoal de Portugal!

Keep up! :D

04 April 2005, 03:18 PM (

Line art? i have no time, to much work.

04 April 2005, 03:23 PM
thanks u all so far for critiques... u were very helpfull in the development of this artwork

04 April 2005, 03:23 PM
looks excellent!

04 April 2005, 05:19 PM
nice shading. cant wait to see it coloured!!she reminds me a little like tifa from ff7. i love it!:thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 05:38 PM (

hi people
got some time eh! eh!
workin on colours now...trying to get a good mood and the light... now starts the real work :)

04 April 2005, 06:16 PM
Good luck! The mistress has a fantastic facial expression :D Good composition. I ll be watching your progress :)

04 April 2005, 09:17 PM
Dude, i like that "line art". It's very readable and simple. Okay, colour WIP. Like the colours, especially on your two main characters. Good contrast to the green environment and it complements it too. I like that little open space you got there. It shows and gives more idea of the depth of your environment.
The expressions on your Demons are a little repetative. I would suggest to change some of them. Maybe some with just a grim or scary looks with saliva coming out of their mouth, hehe.
Anyway, can't wait to see the detailing on this. This is looking good. :buttrock:


04 April 2005, 06:44 PM (

ive been workin on first demon and tree, give him a bit more detail and colour

04 April 2005, 06:51 PM
To Archie:

Thanks for the sugestions u made on my work, you are quit right!!! already changin demons expressions...


04 April 2005, 07:14 PM
great painting, sorry for not having read the story, but wouldnt a more medival style of clotes fit the girl? she actually looks a bit "pasted in that scene" to me with her sporty clothes...

keep it up mate, great actionpacked work, looking forward to your progress!

04 April 2005, 07:36 PM
hey lookin great!

04 April 2005, 07:46 PM
nice idea and I like the colors .
any way good luck .

04 April 2005, 07:52 PM
nice coloring on the creature. i actually like the clothes of the girl. it fits to the atmosphere of the image. but that's just me...

04 April 2005, 08:41 PM
some serious colouring skills, man. i love it:bounce:

04 April 2005, 09:25 PM
Wa sup bro,

Nice, looking good. The details are coming along nicely. Well, how bout some saliva coming out of their mouth or one of them just finished eating some wondering traveler and you see the blood and pieces of the skin and bones, MUAHAHAHAHA.

Pardon my obcession with blood and gore :D


04 April 2005, 03:40 AM
Great sketches. Good to see some color coming into play. A thought - how about some more attackers? Awesome! Keep going! :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 06:56 PM
Funny, I've been picturing brighter greens on the trees (too much drooling over Goro's forests, I guess :D ). Still, you're just starting on the colors, I'll check back later to see what's on your mind. Good idea lighting up the balls like that. :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 03:33 PM (

i just finished first stage of colouring the demons more near, i'm workin on the lion head, here is some details of how its going... the background(forest)stays for last!

04 April 2005, 06:57 PM
Guess who decided to update their piece :eek: FINALLY, hehehe.
Nice, very nice. Looking good there. The details on the characters are looking great. Now bump up the contrast on your environment. Right now it seem to just have on value range.
Nice one on the tongue sticking, hehehe. Still no blood though :sad:

cheers :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 01:22 AM
I believe that the lightning is incoerent. Each character seems to have a different spot from where light comes. Lacks lightning connection! :D

Keep up, this image as really potential.


04 April 2005, 07:10 AM
i´m sorry about the light, but im building some shapes first, i not workin on the light yet, there will be some spot lights... but thanks for the advise|

04 April 2005, 01:52 PM
whoa! i missed a lot! i love it cus it has a lot of colours and they all fit in perfectly! cheers!:thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 03:04 PM
Olá Tiago, gostei muito do seu estilo de pintura e desenho. A composição da cena está muito boa.


04 April 2005, 04:10 PM (

Almost finished Narashima, next the Tami and some lights... here is some detail of Narashima, i'm workin in a bigger resolution than this, but with this picture u can see some details!

04 April 2005, 05:52 PM
Very nice details. I dig the colours too. It's just looking a little flat on the upper body part. You need to put the stomach area in shadow a bit and pull out the chest area up front. The right shoulder needs a bit more shape too. The face looks really nice though and the expression on him KICKS ARSE :thumbsup:


04 April 2005, 07:16 PM
hiya Grafik!:)

sick details! the colours look great! keep up cant wait to see it all finished!:thumbsup:

05 May 2005, 01:22 PM (

Color update - just finished details on the characters, lights still at work i'm gonna work lights and background at same time... lets see if ive time till the deadline :)

05 May 2005, 07:31 PM
It's looking really good man. Just keep the updates coming. I'm liking the details. They are looking good. Now how bout some texturing on the skin :D


05 May 2005, 07:55 PM
i looks amazing grafik! keep up the good work! lol:thumbsup:

05 May 2005, 10:49 AM (

Colouring texturing and details...finaly i got some time to work on this pic, now its progressing more fast

05 May 2005, 08:05 AM
Great work, no crits as this is a awesome work

05 May 2005, 05:57 PM (

small update off some details notin much.

05 May 2005, 05:59 PM
looks pretty greatastic!

05 May 2005, 03:24 AM
whoa... the environment is lookin great bro. Just a couple of suggestions, how bout adding other kinds of exotic plants to give it more colours on certain areas. It's a little too green all around. Oh and the creature in the middle that's holding a the spikey bat weapon, you might want to overlap it with the one on the foreground. Other than that, it looks great and i like where your light source are.

The Story:

Narasimha - The Demon Slayer, must protect the child, she is the key for the Mandara Gate.

Hiranyakashipu – Lord of the Demons wants to open the door between the two dimensions, he wants to slave our planet, so he can became Lord of the Universe

Tami – since little she showed strange powers, as an orphan Tami was a troubled child, people were scared of her because of her powers

Narasimha and Hiranyakashipu are from the dimension Ambarnath, home of Gods and Demons.

Since the birth of mankind the Gods and Demons travelled between the two worlds using Mandara Gate, the Gods wanted to help us evolve, but the Demons wanted to destroy us and rule the planet, seeing this the Gods fought with the Demons and closed the Gate sending off the key to Earth, Gods and Demons nevermore passed to our dimension. Thousands of years passed…

Tami is going to class, the other kids are making fun of her, calling her weird… she runs away to her secret place, there she hears no one…

Someone is using the door to Earth, Hiranyakashipu Lord of the Demons sends hordes of his demons to the door to capture the key, the Gods know Hiranyakashipu plan, they must prevent Hiranyakashipu off acquiring the key, Narasimha is ordered to serve and protect the key.

Narasimha founds a child alone crying, he goes to her when their are attacked by demons, scared Tami runs for the Gate, demons follow her as Narasimha tries to protect her, they all enter the Gate back to Earth and the Gate closes again…

Tami is not afraid of this battle, she and Narasimha fought many times the demons, they want to capture her and take her to Ambarnath, to Hiranyakashipu Lord of the Demons. God Narasimha serves her, a God at her command, she knows is power, many times he protected her, the demons don’t stand a chance against “The Demon Slayer”.

05 May 2005, 03:25 PM
I forgot to say... :D
the some of characters are based in Hindu mythology!
Hope u like people!

i want to give some thanks to all who watched and helped in the develop of this illustration specialy to Arch80 andCalisto, thanks people!!!

05 May 2005, 04:10 PM
it looks amazing, very atmospheric!:)

05 May 2005, 03:44 AM
I really like the composition... The trees are incredible! I think the only areas that bother me are the hands of the giant.. the left hand fingers look bigger than the right.. and the little guys in the foreground need some work where the legs meet the bushes.. it would look cool to see some leg color in the bushes so that they don't look like they're cut off.. other than that.. looks great!!

05 May 2005, 05:38 AM
great work.:thumbsup:
nice comp and lighting.:applause:
will u add more texture to the characters? especially their skins.but not to will make good harmony to the scene.
good luck.:wavey:
