Figure I will throw my hat in the ring and represent. Concepts will follow.

Update: Feb. 23
Finaly got a chance to start modeling. Working on the high poly version for the normal map. Critiques are always welcome.

Update: Feb. 13
Alright updated two sketches. First is a female close combat fighter and the second is a elemental type being. I made a quick procedural material to show what I was thinking of for the surface of the elementalist. Since the female fighter is more developed, thats the one im going to model.

Alright got some concepts finally sketched. Not really any direction yet. Initially, when I thought of ancient nature spirit/elemental type characters popped into my head - suppose to be the first character in the first image but my drawing skills suck! I dont think its working so im opting for a human character but not really sure on the direction to go.

I would definately appreciate feedback and suggestions on direction. Im looking to get the concept locked down by Sunday so I'll try to get some more developed concepts up tomorrow.

Wow those are some wild looking concepts my fav head definately has to be the head in the top left corner of you're third page that looks great!!

the things in the first page, the elementalist stuff, just fantastic!

cant wait to see some more of you're work!

I like the guy in the top image on the right. my only reservation is they look a little baby faced for a soldier

Angelbait: Thanks for the support! I like that head too, unfortunately I just dont have the time to expand the concept. I kind of limited it down to the two characters on the first page of concepts.

Robert-Fletcher: I know. I blame the baby facedness on my lack of drawing skills:D. When I get to the modeling, I will definately improvise a bit and 'rough' the character up. Im glad you like that character though because thats one that im revising - hopefully for the better.

Thanks for the replies!

I didn't meet my sunday deadline of finishing the concepts so my new plan is to begin modeling wednesday. Updated concepts will go up tonight.

Great modeling..
Thought the concept is good, its very similar to airflow's concept. The head, ribcage and especially the weapon. Im not saying its copied, it just a coindicence I think.

02 February 2007, 07:43 AM
Haha, no worries. I know what your saying - I checked airflows thread out and can see the similarities but I think there are enough distinctions between the two characters :). Plus I think our execution from concept to 3d will be very different.
Though, for the record, there was no copying. Maybe we were just channeling each other :).

Will try to update tomorrow.

Yeha, never meant anything bad about it... Yeah maybey your were channeling, I think he posted his stuff earlier by looking at the image dates... Looks like he has gone in a different direction anyway, so I think your safe :P... I like the looks of his new on and both your old ones..
