Hello all. Kinda new here. This is the second challenge I'm taking place in. The first was for CGSociety's B-Movie Challenge. I've been wanting to get more into digital illustration and saw this opportunity to test my skills and to learn new things.

Here is my workflow page for my god. I like the idea of having the bones and organs on the outside of the body with a wide open mouth to suck the souls outta people. I still need to come up with the bottom half of the character. I'm thinking of not giving him legs at all. I mean he's a god, the souls come to him. Why would he need to walk around, right? Any ideas would be appreciated.

This is the pose I'm working with. The character doesn't have six arms but I want to create a movement within this piece. It's my love for animation. Still working out the bone structure for him since he is loosely based off of the grim reaper of death. I wonder if I should add a scythe or would that be too obvious?

Decided to make his cloak transparent and ghost like. I don't want to hid the bone structure of the spine and tail. I will shape it from all the stolen souls he has taken.

Wondering if I should make his arms more skeletal and boney.

I would say make 1 or 2 sets of them skeletal, but not all 3!

Slowly adding to this piece before I get started with the details.

Starting to play with the overall composition with different brushes and opacity.

Adding a tail to this guy making the cloak a part of the background and playing with the souls.

WIP I'm liking it with the tail showing. I'll be putting more time into it once I finish up one of my other projects next week.

I'm still playing around with the overall look of this guy but the time is coming for me to start wrapping this piece up.

Hey all. Here is another update. As you can tell I was just not feeling the lower torso so I made a little change there. Please feel free to rip me a new one. This is the first digital piece in forever. If you guys see something I'm just totally screwing up on, let me know. I'm off work tomorrow so I'll be able to get alot of work done then.

So how do I submit my piece? Am I automatically entered with this forum?

So there you have it. My first digital piece in awhile. Soul Stealing God of Death, basically I was going for a demonic grim reaper. I was about to give him a scythe but decided against it. I'm no way near these other submissions on DMV but I just wanted to do this for once and hopefully meet some new people. I have to give a shoutout to PavelSokov ( on CG Society for being the only one who even commented on my thread there and suggest that I make a pair of arms skeletal. Click on the name to check out their work.
