Hello there; :D

I'm glad to join this challenge, so much fun! :applause: . I'll be designing a Demon Lord...An unusual one. it wont be too human alright but hey i need arms or legs i guess... I'll process towards nothing to full figure so it might be a while before getting the full armored or textured or detailed figure. I haven't decide which element it has yet, but its either fire or darkness. Can't go wrong with those :p . Feedback me and i'll make my demon cook cookies for you with fires of hell? :surprised

First sketch;

03 March 2009, 04:01 AM
I think its good to get away from the whole human thing. It might be a cool to check out some descriptions of old demons. They get kind of nasty, but that the point. good luck!

03 March 2009, 08:11 AM
hi frog; I understand what you are saying but i usually put that as a last resort or something maybe i should check it out. I've something in mind.If that wont work,I might switch for looking preferences ;) and thank you!

03 March 2009, 08:18 AM
Here's another sketch. I'm going to move towards it(4 leg,mask,etc). Hmm maybe mask is not fancy but i got a general mask love which i can't explain why...Lol. critics and comments are most welcome!

03 March 2009, 01:09 PM
The first sketch page was better.. I like the savage type and the portrait that you though it's not like demon lord. You can build up something with them.:)
The four leg version is not that original. And it may be hard to make it look different..:hmm:

I know your style well.. If you find a good concept, you'll ROCK :beer:

03 March 2009, 03:05 PM
Hey jack :D

Thank you!

I agree with you on savage one :) . I'm going to hybrid my designs so it will different if not i'll make it :D.

C'mon u gotta join too!:buttrock:

03 March 2009, 03:10 PM
Hi! :)
Yea that Savage is looking really nice and vicious. Also like that not demon lord, has some personality.. maybe a pet/summon and its master or even a mount. Keep it going! Good stuff..


03 March 2009, 03:29 PM
Heya FrozZT; :D

Yep! it is vicious :D. It will represent my demon lords aggressive side, hehe. I'll combine it with another head i've done.


Creepy,emotionless and somehow seems cruel lol :D

So it has 2 heads and 4 legs. I'm working on it now. It'll be better to show it than describing it. lol hold still!

and thanks FrozZT :wavey:

03 March 2009, 08:24 PM
About to be Final silhouette...waiting you're critics :love: (

I've Drew from side because its hard to understand otherwise :D

Basic anatomy...I've put muscles as default...It may change.I'm planning to put armor. It won't be naked...Unless u want to, lol

Hands may change. I've put them for grabbing,casting spells but they're small cylinder limbs and they altogether resembles hands so its an illusion. See? no human parts :p (

It's more than 20 feet tall. I took 20 feet as a default. Demon has long neck so it should be more than 20 like giraffes.:wise: (

Mask and hairs makes me feel that it belongs to a royal family. It's emotionless and from high its looking down at you without emotion.

I'll modify his neck and back curve into more a more curvy state. It stops after his tail and animal body.

Wing-like things on his lower body back is like a chimney constantly releasing it's inner fire of hatred against any living things so its glowing from the inside.

There's an eye placed into its neck cavity. It has 2 purposes. First is it belongs to Amranoth's servant down there :D . Yes it has a very limited visual view...Luck you!
Second is the eye itself is a ''weapon'' casts a portal to hells magma from deep
and fires with the pressure of the magma. It flushes away with high velocity.

Yes! it's the weak point!(don't tell it that i've said.:p (

Finally down there is its servant if you have any request or appointment from royal Amranoth you either eradicated with its fire breath or you'll be on hold within melting stomach waiting room!:twisted: (

See? Demon Lord barely taking an interest in fighting with their own hands. HA! :p (
Sorry about self sarcasms lol.

As usual C&C's are MOST welcome!

03 March 2009, 11:58 PM
I really like this.

The highly visible anatomical structure leads me to think of its skin being slick, maybe sticky and porous, seeping noxious fluids and such. Maybe experiment texturing (him/her?) with liver spots and discolored areas where flesh is corroding.

I love this, can't wait to see what develops.

03 March 2009, 12:13 AM
This is looking very nice! Definately god-like... And very unique :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 11:58 AM

Thank you man! :) . Yes there are 2 or 3 textures I've had in mind. First was that fleshy thing. I was going to put armor but since its looks very organic,concept that is , it'll hold for now.
Second is pimped skin like specular black and motifs around. Royalness with its skin.

Third is bony structure not exactly an exoskeleton but still exaggerated chest bones and joints.

Thanks man :) critics really pumps me up.


Thanks man! that's my plan :D

Thanks guys for the comments :bowdown: (

03 March 2009, 02:02 PM
Thank you for commenting my entry. :)

That's some freaky demon lord! It has so many interesting features.
His skin gives the feeling of an earthworm, slimy and translucent. I like it.

Rock on! :buttrock:

03 March 2009, 09:14 PM
Heya Izuael; :D

I'm glad you like it man! :D and you're welcome :)

i'm not sure what the hell i'm going to do about skin and texture:D , Should i put armor on it? :\

I will be doing some variations. We'll see about it. I'm curious too. lol

Yeah! :buttrock:

03 March 2009, 09:34 PM

Yeah! :buttrock:

An armor might be cool, since he's a demon lord he might have adornments to just show off? But I guess he don't really need an armor for protection, he's so powerful!

03 March 2009, 01:04 AM
:D thanks Izuael!

Some adornments can be a nice idea ill focus on it very soon. I can't put much armor though. I don't wanna end up with a bulky demon lord with tons of metal(or whatever :P ) :D because it looks 'kinda' (royal) delicate and i want to keep it that way.

Thanks again man those critics really help.

03 March 2009, 01:11 AM
Another update;

Some painting study. I've put icon on forehead with some other marks but i don't know if its a good idea.

03 March 2009, 03:04 AM
This panting look like very nice!:thumbsup:
The icon located place look like not bad.
Is your fire around your character body or launched from body?

03 March 2009, 06:07 AM
Very nice! I love the 'savage' face design too!

03 March 2009, 10:19 AM
Your painting look realy good! I love your color style,

same thing that I d like to know is "where your fire from?"
Can fire burn its hair? I worry about it.

03 March 2009, 10:46 AM
Looks nice for a colour study Akiman.. :cool:
But i'm not sure about the mask. Maybe you should show us one of your cute demon faces :)
If you'r insist to put the mask, the marks is fine as well..
And i also think that he/she doesn't need armour for protection. I'm sure it'll look so powerfull, so the armours should be designed for esthetic reasons..
Much more marks are waitin' for us eventually :drool:

Keep it up :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 01:13 PM
Really nice effects and color palette! Look forward to see more!

03 March 2009, 04:48 PM
Great work! This is really coming along nicely - I'm not sure about the tail though.. seems a bit plain compared to the rest of the design maybe?

03 March 2009, 03:55 AM
i like the eye design on his body, look unique, cant wait to see more development, keep it up.

my DWIV entry (

03 March 2009, 09:45 AM
The paint study is awesome, but the marks in his mask don't work for me. Gets a bit cluttered.

I had an idea that the CGS logo could be branded on his behind, because how powerful he might be, he is probably serving someone himself. :buttrock:

Keep it up!

03 March 2009, 12:12 PM
I really love this concept and the posture of the hands acts as an interesting focal point. I think a side view of the lord will be stronger because it shows more detail and the front on view is a little difficult to understand. If you decide to keep the team icon on its forehead, maybe you could turn its face toward the viewer? Love your use of color in the recently uploaded study.

Keep it up!

03 March 2009, 12:47 PM
Really cool concept I love it

03 March 2009, 12:44 AM

Yes man.
''Demon Lords can manipulate their inborn fusion of power (Fire/lava or Ice/cold or Death/Darkness) to a spectacular degree''
I'm just showing off its inner fire. There will be more elements with its skin so stay tuned!

Thank you! me too!

Thanks! im not used to paint like that much but since you guys like it i'm going to give best i can! :arteest:

Thanks dude!:beer: (

I will practice on the mask, partially showing some of the head. I'm studying on the armor right now. Its a bit bulkier than i thought. I'll upload it when i'm done.:thumbsup:

More is coming! thanks! :D

I agree with you moly. I'll start to study on that eventually. Thank you for stopping by :)

Thanks man! i'm glad you like it. :D

Yeah man. It does clutter a bit maybe i should lower the marks i've put. I've actually put the mark behind the study i'm working on :D . I'll try to finish it asap. My work trips up me much though.

Thanks seg :) My next armor-skin study is from side view(like 45 degree). Roger, keeping it up!

Thanks man! These words really motivating me :love:

03 March 2009, 04:07 PM
Interesting concept.I'll keep an eye on this one.

03 March 2009, 04:57 PM
Thanks pr0wler!

I'm trying to put next phase asap so keep in touch :D

03 March 2009, 05:05 PM
I like it...totally diferent of the tipic demons,,,good evolution...keep it rockin. :thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 07:51 PM
Hi stridiggio;

I'm glad you like it! I'm trying to do an exceptional one. Not totally but in a way :D

03 March 2009, 10:00 PM
hey, really like your take on the demon lord! still got that demonic feel but it doesn't stick to any conventional shapes or silhouette! maybe fill out more of the space with the tentacles or maybe a pet cleaning its horns or something - just to show how regal he is, needs some sort of slave creature...!?


03 March 2009, 09:00 PM
Hey lefoosh;

Actually on profile concept (one of the updates.) there's a creature head at front of him. It's the servant. If you mean as another creature all by himself , i might try to do a couple of designs but im kind of behind of the schedule. So I fear that there wont be much time for the beauty shot. I'm about to finish armor and skin concept so please drop by and leave a comment when i do.:D

04 April 2009, 09:21 PM
Hello folks;

I've finally manage to finish this :D !
Full body shot. Armor and skin phase.I've put a human again for the seeing the size. In this shot handlike extensions are inside of its body.
I'll be very glad if you share you're thoughts with me about this one :D . Cheers!

04 April 2009, 03:38 AM
Nice Akiman, i like the pallette in it. I'm not too sure about the two heads ATM, but that's just me. I think you could use the mask material on some other part of the character to make it stick together better.
All in all, its a solid design and a very good rendering. Keep it up.

04 April 2009, 07:05 AM
Thank you GaeasHerald :D

I dont plan to remove the head but if there will be other critics about it Ill look into it. Thanks for dropping by :)

04 April 2009, 11:21 PM

I'm scribbling around... I'm trying to make armor from exoskeleton.

I'm putting it to daylight for more visual :P and different atmosphere.

Have you got in trouble while looking the previous entry? it was too dark at my monitor at work but not at home and office monitor is kinda screwed up :D

04 April 2009, 03:54 AM
i love the moody side view!

04 April 2009, 05:12 AM
that is awesome, my only concern is the patterns under the horns are making it cute.

04 April 2009, 11:12 AM
Unusual looking fella :) I agree with yahyaehsan. Those patterns add some cuteness :)

04 April 2009, 08:59 PM
Thanks man :D . I'm glad you like it.

I see you're point. I think i'm going to remove them.Thank you!

I think i'm going to remove the circular thing under horn but u think whole circular patterns make him cute?

04 April 2009, 09:36 PM
Hello guys; :wavey:

I've been busy lately because of work and social life related stuff. Work is at ease for now. Schedule is tight but i'll try to catch up. I'm trying to finish character sheet now. Any kind of c&c's greatly appreciated.

04 April 2009, 04:29 PM
hey man glad to see u're back I really like the colors on the third from the last image and I really like the pose on the second from last.:beer: nevertheless a very nice character reminds me a little bit of aku from samurai jack.goodluck!!!:)

04 April 2009, 12:36 AM
very interesting model ,good luck ;)

04 April 2009, 04:48 AM
That full body shot looks awesome, like the color alot, not really sure bout that long-neck head sticking out like that though, looked vulnerable to attack. Keep it up man!

04 April 2009, 08:21 PM

Hi man :D . I'm glad i'm back too. Thanks for your kind comments :) . Aku XD yea i see you're point long neck and horns hehehe.
