View Full Version : Dominance War 5 - 2D - God of Corruption

03 March 2011, 11:42 AM
Yeah, been thinking about this a lot last few days and have finally decided to go with a God of Corruption. Last DW I did a lot of hand sketches but this time around I think I'm gonna go the digital path and start with general silhouettes.

EDIT: Final face design + skin test.

Phew, finally, something to show! I have some other ideas I want to explore but for now this is what I've been doing.

Forgot to post the 'idea' behind this. D8!

Therimus, God of Corruption, passes over the world on his floating, organic throne, his corrupted heart pumping sickness and sin through the veins of his being and into the atmosphere, tainting the air and anything he touches.

Decided to give the throne a rest for now and started on some face/torso ideas.

D8 that headdress just about killed my hand...

those two mask versions are meant to be half bone, half muscle, but it's hard to see at this res ><...

Oh is one is goin to be cool! You are going to have to use the second head from the first image with the crazy unsymmetrical head ornament.
I love everything about that head!

03 March 2011, 10:06 AM
Didn't get a huge amount done today, but have started on torso and armour ideas XD

PavelSokov: Thanks man! I am kind of happy with that one too, might explore it some more.

and one more...slightly changed the hip armour on that top one.

Liking the torso anatomy so far. I like the head alot but you may want to continue with the asymmetrical style through the body as well. For instance his left shoulder could be larger and disfigured to balance out the larger forms on the right side of the head. Very cool though, looking forward to more.

Madbot: Thanks, that's a good idea! I know I wanted his throne to be asymmetrical, but I was as yet undecided about his body/armour. Will def give that a go!

03 March 2011, 07:45 AM
I'm definately struggling with the throne...the scale of this is something I've never really done before, so if anyone has any helpful tips with regards to, well, "filling space" without having to into huge detail, that'd be much appreciated XD. Also tried a quick new chest design at Madbot's suggestion.

03 March 2011, 06:23 AM
Nice sketches so far :)

Like the idea of the organic throne with snakes. Like the symbolism of snake - poison - corruption in that concept, cool.

Good luck and waiting for mor updates. Cheers!!

Ferx: Thank you :D

Phew, my brain was fried for a week, but I have a new graphics tablet now and I'm back into it XD.

Started on the snake, and some new armour and a colour test. Gold is hard to do -_-

nice progress, i like the snake design! just my suggestion, maybe add the snake elements design on the main character face, it make the design consistent look.

my DWV entry, god of war (

04 April 2011, 06:56 PM
Nice design of the snake , really cool :D Agree with the need of consistent look on the design, and perhaps is a good idea to make the face of the god a bit on a snake style, only a comment ;)

Good work and looking forward for more updates. Cheers!!

04 April 2011, 08:30 AM
Thanks for the tips guys!! Will give it a go!

04 April 2011, 10:55 AM
Love that snake design at the moment, and yeah I would definitely like to see the head go in that direction too. (BTW thanks for thanking me in the update - glad you found the advice useful) :cool:

Np Madbot :)

Made a start on the new head designs, though admittedly not a huge amount got done! I was pretty tired when I finished and I think my brain ran out of ideas.

3 i'm not sure about. That was the last one I did and I dunno...I worry it looks too much like the unmasked predator XD
I wanted to keep his eyes forward facing and of a single pair, to distance him a bit from the "dumb beast" that he controls. Also I know i've only done these in front position, but when I get around to the side drawings you'll see his teeth/jaw protrude a bit more than a human's.
Gonna do a skin test next (and more faces if I can think of any). Initially I was going to give him greyish skin, but I think I'll compare that to the snake skin and see what it looks like. Maybe give the snakes some bone items....we'll see...

Really spectacular those last snaked heads, also the mouth looks terrible.
See you.

04 April 2011, 07:05 PM
Number 1 out of the 3 heads is my favorite, looking good!

04 April 2011, 05:32 PM
Cool head studies, like version 1 and 3 :) For sure that teeth look dangerous :D

Wating for more updates!

04 April 2011, 04:40 PM
Hey guys, thanks!

So, I've decided to get this dude out of the way so I can start on the throne because I just know that's going to give me pain. I've got a final version of the face, and some skin tests. Keeping in mind that whatever skin I use will be applied to the rest of his (unarmoured) body.
Also cleaned up the headdress for the character sheet and beginning the same process of the rest of him. And now I'm gonna collapse XD

04 April 2011, 06:44 PM
I like his teeth, and the overall head with its ammonite-type structure, just not sure about the snake head 'eating' his hair...

04 April 2011, 12:22 AM
Baron: ohh, you make good point, it's not his hair but rather the whole thing is muscle tissue and bone, but if it's not obvious then I def need to work on that, thanks! As for the eating, it was pointed out to me that it was like the Ouroboros, which at first I didn't like, but I figure given what that image represents, having a 'corrupted' image of that fits in with the concept. It's choking on it's one tainted flesh XD
