Concept Sketch: concept sketch

"For now I find this power gained is more unto a curse.
My spirit burns with every spell and each irreverent verse.
Despite this strength and knowledge earned, I have paid a heavy toll,
Never should've traded power for my own immortal soul."
- C. Vincent Metzen

Master: Necromancer.
Servant: Summoned dead.
Secondary Master: Death

He summons the dead to serve his purpose, he is their master, and they are his servants,
yet, as he summons them one by one, a part of his soul leaves him behind,
a part of humanity in him vanishes, and he becomes one of them,
the price for his addiction, is his life,
he cannot stop himself from these dark arts,
and so, his spirit and his flesh becomes dead,
and death becomes his new master.

okay, this is my 1st try at a cg talk challenge, so im kinda figuring things out.

some more info on the necromancer in the concept sketch. in some places there will be flesh visible as these parts become undead. some of his fingers will only have bone left. the large hand on the right is a gigantic rock minion that he is summoning from the earth. it will be made out of rock.

oh yeah, i ran out of space on paper, so had to do pic over 3 a4 pages. haha. thats why its kinda got seams!

im really an amateur, and my main goal is just to be a little better than what i was at the start.

one question, only milestones have to be submitted. other pics we just post here ourselves, like when i make a small update? is that correct.

This looks really cool. Very cool idea. I like both your ideas for 3d and 2d, you are very creative. Someone should consider hiring you.
  03 March 2005
I like the idea so far.

As for your question about milestones.. hmm.. I guess you choose which one you send. Maybe very small changes can only be posted on your thread while bigger (but not necessarily less frequent) updates and changes can be submitted.

Your chocie i believe.. But keep in mind ''better safe than sorry''

The heart of challenge is to push the artist beyond their current skill level.

This is my first challenge as well so don't feel out of place. As long as you keep active then your on the right path.

Good luck

Line Art: basic lineart

did a basic lineart today. the whole image at the moment is around 6000x5000, and im posting it in 800x600, so a lot of detail is lost. haha. anyway, im not entirely sure what the necr will be wearing. but ill start with the hand 1st, and then hopefully something will come to mind. also thinking about background, and maybe i will insert ghosts or spirits flying about. who knows? no me!

Concept Sketch: layout change

ive decided to put the necro on the hand. this seems to create a more centralistic effect (if there is even such a word). now everything revolves around the necro and hand at the same time. previously it looked a bit off balace. also, the hand will be bound to his legs, and faces of previous souls who lost their life in the same way will be seen in the hand itself.

Coloring WIP: starting the hand

i looked for a colour for the hand, and also put in some details. there will be more places where the flesh will seen, also, im gonna make a finger or two show some bone. then thre will also be faces in the skin of the hand.
