03 March 2009, 01:56 PM
Hi everyone, just started this thread, will post WIP soon, hopefully I won't let the team down this time around. BTW is it ok that I name the demon lord later on, or do I have to name it right now? I am really not good at picking names :P

03 March 2009, 02:06 PM
First drafts for demon lord, still very rough busy playing around with the direction, will just have to make it up as I go heh, all C&C are welcome ^__^

03 March 2009, 02:11 PM
Hey mate very nice concepts youve made :)

Top right hand one is the best one for me its the most original with no real human features, great stuff!

Good luck with the rest


03 March 2009, 02:16 PM
The one on the top right reminds me of a giegeresque character like "aliens". Very cool concepts, good luck!

03 March 2009, 03:06 PM
cool style

03 March 2009, 07:22 PM
Like the style of work you are doing.Can not wait to see the end product.:applause:

03 March 2009, 02:52 PM
Hi everyone, thanks for all the support so far, believe it or not but it really helps me in taking directions. Here is a quick update on the demon lord, still playing around with all sort of things, will c how it goes as the concept progress, all c&C are welcome ;)

03 March 2009, 03:11 PM
WOW! that is awesome great shape man the concept is really sick, cant wait to see more progress

03 March 2009, 03:13 PM
I like your last sketch, very demonic and inspiring.
You got a nice style too, keep it up!

03 March 2009, 04:01 PM
Yes, really awesome brush work! What color scheme do you plan on implementing?

03 March 2009, 04:28 PM
Well that worked out bloody nicely :thumbsup:

This guy is fire based right ?

I like the wings on the back make him look almost like an angel gone wrong

Nice work this should be a great entry.


03 March 2009, 04:31 PM
Great concept looks sick! Your entry in the mini was awesome as well dude, can't wait to see how this plays out

03 March 2009, 06:12 PM
Wow, awsome concept work. Looks like an original idea.

03 March 2009, 08:44 AM
these are looking great. I really like the arachnid feel to the latest ones.
Will be watching this post for more progress! keep up the great work!

03 March 2009, 11:25 AM
top right one is my fave,really nice form

03 March 2009, 02:24 PM
Nice concepts man!

03 March 2009, 03:38 PM
Great work, can't wait to see the final. I think this one could work for an earth, fire, or ice elemental.

03 March 2009, 03:52 PM
amazing~!! wonderfull shape there XD

03 March 2009, 04:54 PM
Hey man, sweet start. I think that last close up looks delicious, i dont think the entire design in the full image is as thought through and interesting though, to much busy shapes that needs more work. I understand you havent finished your design yet just thinking out loud.. His outer shoulder area and the beasts on his sides could use some work.. Awesome stuff so far, just keep pushing that design and it'll be crazy! :)

Keep it up,


03 March 2009, 06:23 PM
Oh you are Awesome..

03 March 2009, 06:53 PM
Amazing sketches. :thumbsup: Keep it up.

03 March 2009, 07:08 PM
Cool concepts!
Maybe there's a bit too much likeness to the DW3 - 2D-winner .
Anyway good work!

03 March 2009, 02:13 PM
Hi everyone, once again a big thanks for all the c&c and supports, it really helps me in directing the concept as it progress.

Khan, um I suppose you could say fire is sort of like part of it elemental powers, currently I am gonna throw in a couple of other elements play around with it a bit and see where that will take the idea ;)

Frozzt, thanks 4 the suggestions, I definitely will look into those spots, currently the visuals are still drifting , I am still trying to pull it out of the mist heh, so do forgive me if some areas might seem ambiguous at this stage, hopefully it won't look as undefined when it start to take proper form :)

Yakonusuke, I actually only really noticed that when you mentioned it heh, like I said the concept is still in the mist, we will just have to see how it will emerge as the idea start to unwrap itself, but thanks for bringing it up ;)

So, Here is a quick update on the visuals so far, still progressing and searching, looking forward to your c&c ^__^

03 March 2009, 02:19 PM
I really wouldn't like to bump into that... :surprised
Great job overall this looks awesome.

03 March 2009, 02:33 PM
Hey man.. :) No need to ask for forgivness, its your creation to do with as you please, i only try to give som thoughts, feel free to ignore them or if you find them usefull make use of them.

You still have an awesome idea and design to work with, though i feel like it just got noisier and harder to look at, i bet my own personal taste plays in here somewhat. But still trying to keep an objective mind i feel you could work less on the details for now and try to rework and develope on some of your larger forms and the outlying shape of the entire figure. That small close up is so nice and caught me directly, but in the full figure those qualitys fade in all the noise. Looking forward to seeing more.. ;) Keep it up!


03 March 2009, 04:38 PM
Wow! Great concept!! Can't wait to see more ;)

03 March 2009, 01:52 PM
ow, man.

You really have an inspiring progress. I'm walking every step with satisfaction. its concept, yes, I think something really destructive.

Very good concept and impressive designs. I like and continue posting. congratulations!

03 March 2009, 01:59 PM
wow , this demon lord doesn't need any abilities , his look is enough to get anyone a heart attack :twisted: , anyway really unique concept , keep it up :buttrock:

03 March 2009, 04:05 PM
Holy crap! That's a nasty looking fella! I like it very much :)

03 March 2009, 04:29 PM
awesome detailss XD wheee, looks very strong, cant wait to see the coloured version XD

03 March 2009, 04:38 PM
woah! kickass concept.. :buttrock: i can't really think of anything to crit.. may be because i am dazzled by the very look of it :eek:

03 March 2009, 04:55 PM
Amazing concept man. I love every bit of it. He looks viciously evil!

03 March 2009, 07:15 PM
wow great work man!
still a bit hard to read but very promissing man!
Keep up the great work!

03 March 2009, 10:02 PM
pretty nice concepts :thumbsup:
i keep an eye on it :)

03 March 2009, 03:18 AM
good stuff, your demon lord look very powerful and i feel that he got the power to destroy everything on earth! lol just i wish to see more structure on his body, keep it up!

DWIV entry (

03 March 2009, 03:33 AM
That thing is hauntingly evil. o_o .. Scary stuff! It almost reminds me of a gigantic, murderous centipede.

03 March 2009, 03:52 AM
neat, reminds me of the final illustration of dante's inferno so you're on the right direction :D
check it out if you havent already may give extra inspiration (id doesnt really looks like you need any tho :) )

03 March 2009, 06:05 AM
Wow, that's scary good. And just plain scary, too! It fits the description to a tee: Giant, powerful, and not possessing too many human attributes. Keep going with it, it's looking great so far! :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 04:22 PM
Hi everyone, thanks for the supports and the c&c it really makes me tick ;) Unfortunately I wasn't able to make much progress this weekend, long story, never the less I managed to play a bit with the design now I am thinking of whether to keep the original head or move along with the new head, all suggestions are welcome, thanks ^__^

03 March 2009, 05:42 PM
I like more first idea with 3 heads together, it's bestially XD
great work, man! very well.

03 March 2009, 06:01 PM

Oh my god. t nearly makes me speachless.
I just can say, that i like the three-head version better.
Its now far beyond my own skills and I am sure, it will improve even more!

so long

03 March 2009, 07:04 PM
I am choosing the first head design, don't like the second 1 very much. Keep the three heads dude!

03 March 2009, 03:44 AM
me too, the first one is better i think, those three head look scary, should go for it!

my DWIV entry (

03 March 2009, 03:34 PM
Hi everyone, sorry about the delay, have been stuck in a couple of business, glad I am finally able to breath for now heh. Thanks everyone for the c&c really appreciate every bit of it. Here is a quick update on Akuma, still morphing, transforming, taking it final shape as the muw ha hah hah hah.......errrr.....ya; once again looking forward to hear from everyone ;)

03 March 2009, 03:59 PM
holy sh**!!!


03 March 2009, 04:42 PM
Awesome now I see where this one is goin' great job

03 March 2009, 04:56 PM
cant wait to see that thing finished holly sh**!

03 March 2009, 07:33 PM
WOW!!! looks soo good, nice job!!

03 March 2009, 08:05 PM
:bowdown: to this supreme satanic majesty! are you planning to paint hundreds of lost souls in all tht mist ???

04 April 2009, 10:34 AM
Hmm. I just wonder, whether it might look to similar to one of the last years winners post, the one with the female in the heaven (the demonic mist around her with all his heads and mouths).
But really persuading design.

04 April 2009, 01:27 PM
Hi everyone, really sorry about the delay in update, unfortunately I had many things that I have to deal with recently, but am glad I can finally breath again for now heh. Also thanks everyone for the supports, really appreciate it, and it means a lots to me in the design progress. Never the less here it is Akuma reincarnated, hopefully now it won't look like last year's winner anymore heh, below are possible suggestions for its lesser demons which forms part of its army muhha ha ha ha ka...<caugh caugh>.... um ya. Once again all c&c are welcome ;)

P.S: Sorry about the rough scan :P

04 April 2009, 04:04 PM
Hi everyone, another quick update on Akuma, not sure which color scheme to go with, all suggestions are welcome

04 April 2009, 05:02 PM
this is insanity! this is madness! :eek: wow! love the last update.. awesome!
both the color schemes are good! but i prefer the Second one with bluish tint.. because i felt the first one looks more like halloween :D Great Going! Keep Rocking!

04 April 2009, 06:08 PM
I just pissed my pants! That is wicked man! I would just run if I saw that thing on the battlefield :bowdown:

04 April 2009, 07:14 PM that is AWSOME! I totaly dig that one. That is sooo wicked.

Im not sure about the color scheme. Im a bit oldschool when it comes to hellish creatures, so I would go for the fire. But namnocilis is kind of right with the Halloween feeling. Maybe its just to much yellow. I go for the blue as well, cause it is very sinister. Reminds a bit of Minas Morgul in LOTR. But Im sure you find the right tweak when you decide to go for a lava like coloring.

Thumbs up man and all the luck. I watch that one closely.

04 April 2009, 07:32 PM
Excellent mate ! it is a really rich demon

04 April 2009, 08:11 PM
Amazing man! About the colour scheme, lots of people are going for the fire-orange scheme, so if I were you I'd go with the second one.
Keep up the good work.

04 April 2009, 09:22 PM
I could not foresee that you would change your concept just by the hint of a similarity to the last year's winner ;)
But hell, it looking gorgeous.
As already written, most people decide to go for black-orange (I also added such an element to my illustration ... ehm ...). But perhaps blue is a bit to "good side of the might"-like. Ever tried greenish colour?
And I also think, the sideshot makes most obvious the front-back part of this creature, but perhaps you should add something more dynamical, outstreched arm, cape, leaning forward or something like that.
But really cool stuff. I wonder what's going on in your head, dude ;)

04 April 2009, 01:25 AM
:cool: The style is cool, keep updating

04 April 2009, 05:55 PM
amazing update, i like the second scheme, but both look tits magoo!!! keep it up :bowdown:

04 April 2009, 08:10 PM
simply insane! amazing... incredeble... in fact.
i'm like a hot color in flames... but... wow!
you know what u making... congrats!

04 April 2009, 11:58 PM
Insane stuff! I hope your final will look a bit like the first picture you posted.. the black/white one with fron view.. it had a really nice sense of scale and impact.

Keep it up!

04 April 2009, 03:08 PM
Hi everyone, thanks for been so patience, really sorry about the major delay in update, have been caught in many things.....long story. Never the less, here is the update on Akuma, will make more progress as I go on, hopefully will still be able to make it on time, all c&c are welcome .

04 April 2009, 02:52 PM
强。。。。。! 好强的设计。看来,魔兽的胜利是指日可待的啦。加油!

05 May 2009, 01:57 PM
Hi everyone, it been so long since I've had time to deal with this,thanks to Alien King, now I find the strength to come back to this battlefield again. One week, is all that left, so I am gonna just go ahead and unwrap every thing as quickly as I can, here is the update on akuma, with color suggestion, the structure still need a bit of adjustment, but I will probably get that sorted on my next post, all C&C are welcome, and to all my teammates, good luck with this final stretch.

05 May 2009, 07:00 PM
Nice :) I think the blue-red colors work well. I don't think you should add more colors to it.

05 May 2009, 04:08 PM
Hi everyone, thanks for the c&c so far, here is a quick update on Akuma's victory pose, all C&C are welcome

05 May 2009, 02:46 PM
Hi everyone, time is running out, so I will try to update as often as possible, here is a quick update on the character sheet, hopefully I will be able to fit it onto 1200X1000..........eventually :P

PS. sorry about the image size, forgot to reduce it before I post >__<

05 May 2009, 03:48 PM
Hi everyone, a quick update on the character sheet

05 May 2009, 04:22 PM
A turn of event, Akuma didn't make it way through the hellgate, but something else did...........

05 May 2009, 05:21 PM
update on character sheet and victory pose

05 May 2009, 03:33 PM
made some adjustments to the final image, still a bit uncertain about the position of the logo, seem to look better on the right part of the arm.....hmmmmmm

05 May 2009, 02:08 PM
This is probably the final image, although it really was a rush for me, but I enjoyed being part of this :D

05 May 2009, 04:29 PM
Another update on the character sheet, looks like I am gonna work til the last minute :P

05 May 2009, 08:14 PM
Whew, finally caught up in time, here are everything for the finals, and finally I can get a break for a while, so until next time, enjoy everyone, and thanks for all the supports ;)
