rough thumbnail sketches

Alright, so in preparation for this year's D-War I've started with some thumbnail sketches to get my brain going.

One of the design that stood out for me was 2-E from the second batch of thumbs and so I've decided to move forward with it.



BATCH 1










BATCH 2









Next up will be some intermediate sketches

more sketches

So for my entry this year I've decided to go robot (last year was a demon warlord)



My concept is a light-weight, extremely agile, Scout class robot that combines machinery, samurai/ninja attire, and the aesthetics of insects, in particular the praying mantis which is something that stood out to me from the thumbnail sketches.


Here's a quick silhouette sketches to establish general feel of the proportion and weaponry:








I liked the elements from 2 and 4 and proceeded to do a rough color concept from it. The CG society logo will be incorporated into the holographic banner on the back. I'm somewhat torn between giving it a real sword or energy based sword.











And here's some variation I've done from the color rough to establish a final design.










So far I'm trying to combine elements from 2 and 3. I would like to get some opinions from you guys.


thanks for looking!

That is some really nice work. Your character development is just sweet!

Really loving the mantis look as well, it is a very interesting design.

Beauty Shot - Thumbnail Sketch

moving onto the final beauty shot of my character now. I've done some quick thumbnail concepts to explore different angles and poses:









I like all of them in their own way. The complexity and time constrain will be a factor in deciding which one to go with (got this thing I call job now...) but I would like to hear your feedback as well
