DWIV - 2D- nJoo - Arm of Lord (Abomination)

Here're my final submission for the DWIV, not much update really.
I have a lot of other things piled up so I couldn't work on it too much more, I know the formatting and just putting things together would take me some time, so anyways... here it is~ Thanks a billion again for everyone's feedback and support, it's been really really fun experience. C ya!









----------------------- OLDER STUFF ------------------------------

Decided to put the update all in the first post to make it easier~

Like I said, this year I decided to do the final pose in a different style, this been a style that I've been doing a lot for work and never really been used for and public work. I know most of you probably perfer the painted look, I just got a little tired of the painted look all the time and want to a somewhat cellcut style.

Anyways, this is 80% done for the final pose, I'll be adding moore detail design to the arm maybe and bg,etc. Just don't want to make it too busy.

Also added the tiny sword at the demon arm that's left from the dead hero which was used to seal the demon so the arm can never be reattached to the great demon,etc.
Just something small that I thought was fun~

Anyways I'll be working on the 3view ortho sheet first before coming back to this piece.

Any comment are always welcome, I do like to hear what people think of this style of coloring, it'll most likely cost me since i don't think any of the top 100 DW last year was cellshaded so ya... but still it was really fun! Thanks again everyone!



----------------------- OLDER STUFF ------------------------------




In terms of silhouette it's similar to previous sketch, I wanted to keep a similar silhouette but tweak it more, instead of being horizontal on the shoulder, it's a bit rotated towards the back.

This allow me to incorporate some of the other ideas I like from the first round of sketches.
-the arm holding the demon arm, and somewhat add like a carrying/dragging touch to it.
-the severed end is somewhat like an opened mouth and horn
this way the head can attack as well, also an attack from the demon arm would be more powerful as it swing from the back.

Thanks a tonne for everyone's feedback and also Christie's awesome crits~!

I'm somewhat ready to start the final beauty shot for the char, i'll add the last round of detail touches and design when I start the final design~

----------------------- OLDER STUFF ------------------------------

Here's a walk test from the revised design... its NOT meant to look so clumsy and cute and dumb, but it turned out that way..haha

Anyways, i just did it for fun and to show how the balance between the arm and the body is,etc.




Here're more sketches~



I was having a hard time deciding between the one dragging the arm from behind, and the mid right design from last batch of sketches

Thanks for everyone's feedback, I really took it into consideration when deciding >.<

The arm dragging one would be fun but this sihoulette seems to work better for me and in terms of the overall design how it'd work attacking,etc. I decided to still go with this direction, made more changes and detail to push the design to be a tad unique hopefully.

Any feedback and crit and ideas to push this even crazier or unique would be great!

I'll be posting a test animation of the walk soon~

----------------------- OLDER STUFF ------------------------------

Here goes, I know I'm quite late, been quite busy and never had a lot of time to post my stuff up~ but gonna work hard this long weekend (holiday in korea hehe) to bust this DW out!

Demon - Abomination



A quick description, tho I was busy I've been trying to brainstorm the idea for the DW contest. Unlike last year, I have a pretty set direction I kinda want to go with.

It revolves around the 'severed arm of the lord'
Basically some battle long ago, the arm of the great demon lord was chopped off, while the foolish minion demon began to feast on it, little did it know that the blood of the demon lord is still boiling instead.

The concept are basically this giant arm that's attached to an abomination of demons. I don't want to go with the typical attachment where it's just one arm bigger,etc so the direction is that the arm will go somewhere ontop in an un-natural position.

Also not clear from the sketch, the body I'm thinking of going with a wierd combination of different demons, also the giant demon arm will have a lot more detail such as face,etc that might seem like it's eating the body,etc.

blah blah blah

C/C always welcome!

I really like your first brainstorm and the expression of the arm dragging mock up is just ingenious.

The others seem a bit "been there, done that", while the two I mentioned above are really unique and would make awesome final characters.

EDIT: Ooooh, I see now what you were thinking with the horned design. I have to agree, especially seeing the walk frames, that's the way to go.

Ooh, gorgeous, dude! Good call going with the cel-shaded look. Your gradients here are so snazzy. Are you painting this by hand, or using layer types for glow, or something I haven't tried? I've recently been searching for ways to get this look down myself, but it seems you're farther along than I am and I had to ask.

Now names... first thing I did was look for Greek stuff, cause I think of mythology when stuff about gods and epic battles and stuff come up. Thiole is Devil, Theos is God, cheir is hand, brachio is arm, bellu is beautiful... I figured combining some of these could be interesting. Like Bellucheir has a nice ring to it. "Beautiful hand."

Best of luck! I'll be around.
