Concept Sketch: concept sketches

this is my character for the challenge. he's an enhanced mech/man that is able to suck the souls out of his victims. he can be sent to any time period to find his victims.

Concept Sketch: chimera

the soul that the main character is sent for is the soul of a chimera (the mythical greek creature). he has to capture it's soul no matter what. the task is even more daunting since the chimera possesses three heads and my concept allows for the soul taker to collect all three souls of the heads to complete his mission.

this is the sketch of the ram head which is the middle head. he has 2 sets of horns.

Concept Sketch: the body sketch

here's the chimera's body sketch. i tried to integrate elements of each creature into the body...but i'm still trying to flesh out what is what. the forelegs of the chimera will have the lions paws and the hind legs will have a goat's hoofs. the tail is more lizard/serpent like and the torso is a mixture between lion and ram...but moreso of a lions.

i'll try to post the comp. sketch ASAP.

Concept Sketch: rough sketch

Line Art: completed comp

here's my complete line art that i'll be using. the "machine" is taking the souls out of the chimera. it has already taken the serpent and the ram leaving the lion for last. all done is ps7.

Coloring WIP: adding souls

i started a soul layer around the machine. he is inhaling the lion's soul while previous trapt souls are keeping his arms powered/mobile. still tweaking this area.

Could yu put pictures with a higher resolution....these are very small..?

Maybe you're a little bit too far of the term of the contest....machineflesh....?

Coloring WIP: heads detail

just working on the body of the chimera. primarily focusing on the creatures heads. i decided to move the serpent head because it looked too awkward...will have to add it in later.

thanks 0-2

goli-i think that it's not too far off of the theme machineflesh because the character is the machineflesh. he's been given the technology to steal souls to enhance his physical prowess. the illustration might seem far off because he's not showing enough of the machine aspect yet. but he is a machineflesh that has stolen the chimera's soul.

thanks for your feedback.

I really like the mythology meets, technology idea, keep the ideas coming, youve shown a good progression and some definate thought has gone into your idea beore youve started. Keep it up.
