Ok, so it's Gods this time, awesome!
My checklist for Godliness for the moment is:

i. has to be of enormous scale, dwarfing the mere mortals
ii. has to hover over things rather than using limbs as a means of locomotion (if you're a God you can afford to use limbs for other purposes, right?)
iii. has to have an aura of awe (aka glowing thingies around it) and striking visual impact to inspire fear/reverence/submission/etc)
iv. has to mix anthropomorphic traits with animal/mechanic/demonic/elemental/etc characteristics (just cause I like so).

With that in mind, I'm thinking of a hovering armless biomechanical torso, with some mutilated bunch of arms/claws coming out of its pelvis, with floating ruins orbiting it, and a glowing rune (CGS logo) beneath it. Does that sound crazy enough?

For now I've been testing my workflow and trying to get the creative juices flowing, by imitating the great HR Giger. This is what I ended up with:


It's a bit too heavily referenced from Giger's "Li I", but it's served me to realize 2 things:
a. Gotta use an 80% traditional media (pencil+paper) and 20% digital approach
b. Biomechanical creatures kick ass.

More scketches comming soon. C&C most welcomed!

Thank you guys for the warm comments! Much appreciatted!
For the head of this guy, I'm thinking of adding built-in foetal incubators on each side, as if its mind were feeding off its own offspring. Think that could work?

Alekzsander: aguanten los sudacas!

Nice sketches, like the headgear especially. Good luck!

Hey Gerardo,

Cool concept for sure. Like the idea of a biomechanical god and the surrealistic approach on your designs. Good luck and waiting for more updates. Cheers!!

Hola GERE!
Remember me? I sure remember you. I just wanted to drop by and say hi. I took your advice and after the last DW I started studding and practicing like crazy. I've basically been working as a concept artist since then and its really been great. So just wanted to thank you for all your support back when I was just getting started.
I really hope everything is really going good for you. BIG HUG my friend!
