And he Jesus asked him, "What is thy name?" And he answered, saying,
"My name is Legion: for we are many."
So i wanted this to look like a writhing ball of demon flesh, but it developed into this larger dominant demon...
I'm not sure if i want to go with a tonal red overall or a lava burning flesh theme... but that's not very close to the color scheme.
I am certain that I'm going to have one centralized emanation in the center of the lord. A focus holding the power of the demon, which can at-will be shot out or extended like a ray... it will be the CGS logo displaying some immense powery glow... GLOW GLOW GLOW... thank you mr. kinkade.
I might go with a single massive demon lord or a LEGION of demons...
I think given the creepiness of the 'ancient alien texts' and idea behind the name, I'm going to go with the writhing mass of DOOOOOOOOOM....

So I had a breakthrough. I really like the guy on the right.
Here's the problem with the one on the left. Having a mass of multiple demons would be hard to keep under 10k tris and plus it just wouldn't read. Although the center would always be that strong logo orb, there would be no place to focus your eyes after that...
SO... pending any other fawesome thumbnails that i do, which i might have time for at GDC, I'm going to proceed with the large fat demon on the right. I tend to see all the winners in Dominance war with huge ass muscles and guns and armor and pets etc... so i figure...
One final note. I'm happier now with my idea... It's much clearer in my mind... if i go with the blob guy... but... now my name is a bit invalid. Legion conotes a large army, and the biblical reference to the original 'Legion'... so i'm not sure if i can change it...
but... now that I think about it... I kind of like Legion for the fat guy.

no I'm not laughing at your sketches, which I think are really quite fun and nicely drawn, or the fact that you're images are way too big and that you know it too, but that your posts are quite entertaining.
Anyhow, good call on the original idea. It would be hard to read. I think the sketch on the right is cool but I wouldn't mind seeing even more options. your funny. I'll be visiting often.

I'm so busy at work... but i love it.
Unfortunately that's slowing down my DWIV progress.

I added some more sketches and painted them up, but i'm still fairly unenthusiastic with the concept. Oh well... i'm going to model it up and get it done.

I guess I'm just going to do number 2?
I don't really have any more time to do other concepts anyways.
