It's my first time to participate in Dominance war,so I am excited a lot!
I've thought about the concept for my god, and I finally created this!
"God of Rebirth"
Now, I can not expect how I will develop my concept, but I will do my best!
Good luck guys!

Cool theme, sounds very necromancer like, reanimating dead things. You could illustrate that quite well an example could be if they were going through a dead forest having the plant life being brought back to life as they walk by.
Look forward to seeing this develop.

phoenix-06: Thank you for your comment. It really helped me to develop my concept.

Now, It is a story or description for God of Rebirth.

He is God of Rebirth. Exuviating his old skins, he revives with his new body eternally.
(His multiple layers of cast-off skins surrounding him hint how he is old).
He is the only one who can touch and hold the' Sandglass of Life', controlling time of
all the living in the world. At the moment he turns the Sandgrass upside down,
dying nature begins to be rejuvenated and the polluted universe starts to do 'big bang' again.

And this is my rough rough sketch... now I am working on the detail design for the god and
his sandglass...If you have some ideas or comments on it, feel free to say that!

That is one of a cool sandglass. Possibly the right arm could be either thinner or the big fold turned into hanging flesh. Keep on sketching!

i really love the idea of your god!! is wonderful idea!! keep it up! cant wait to see another update!

03 March 2011, 07:02 PM
yes, this is a very unique god, I look forward to seeing more, if you're ever having trouble coming up with sketch ideas, sometimes what helps me is to look through anatomy books and look at the bones of the hand, for example, or the legs or shoulder blades, and pick shapes out that look interesting.

First, thank you, Derrik Song, Pixel- Chick and Darkonerster.
your comments helped me to develop my rough ideas a lot.

These are my detail design for God of Rebirth.

This is how God of Rebirth looks!

I tried to make a variety of headdresses for the god. Because he is God of Rebirth, I
chose 'plants' as a motive. To make the images, I experimented with roots or leaves...etc

These are sandglass concept images showing how death and birth coexist with each other...
Any comments are welcome and thanks!

Very original and interesting idea with great potential. Like the emphasis on the old and new skin over the god. My concer is that perhaps is to much skins over the character that puts a bit busy note over him. Maybe the body of the god only wit a new skin coming from the craked old skins. Only a comment :)
NIce work and waiting for more updates. Cheers!!

oo. I love the concept of the shedding layers visible at the same time.

Hello again

So far, I have not posted my work in progress due to my school project.
However, now, I am going to speed up again!
This is my final sketch for my character. After composing this character and environment,
I am going to colour them.

04 April 2011, 01:52 AM
Now, I am painting it!

04 April 2011, 03:04 AM
welcome back! the outline and the color look good so far, it will turn out a great stuff at the end, this is one of my favourite concept idea.

04 April 2011, 12:40 PM
Liked composition and colors, looking forward progress

04 April 2011, 11:39 PM
Thanks, Derrick and Jesusguijarro!

04 April 2011, 08:14 AM
What I've done so far...

04 April 2011, 06:08 PM
Beautiful colors and lighting, also the concept is really original.
Keep it on.

davidramonilustracion, thank you for your comment!
This is what I've done so far, and now I am working on the details and BG...
If you guys have any idea for my progress, please tell me about that!

05 May 2011, 08:05 AM
I changed the BG- particularly the sky...

05 May 2011, 08:47 PM
Approximately... we have a week to complete our gods.. we are almost done, guy!
This week, I've worked on the BG and done colour adjustment...
From now, I am going to finish the modeling and concept sheet and still fixing somthing wrong in my image.

05 May 2011, 09:45 AM
Lappixx0, when I first looked at this I thought what a great concept, and with the postings you have been making you've really executed the idea well. Awesome! I think the colour adjustments you've been making have been spot on, and it could be worthwhile playing with the curves or levels before the final submission to see if you can eek out any more. Who knows?
Can't wait for the model sheet and the final piece if you get time to do anymore.

Thank you, budley. as you suggested, I played with the levels and curves and could find something interesting!

This might be my final post for DW5 (but until the due, I will keep revising something...)
I am very happy with the experiences that I could see a lot of talented artists' works here and it really helped me to learn a lot... good luck, guys! :)
