very early concept stage of 'Syness'. Still playing with height, and what exactly he should be/do. But I was thinking perhaps changing his color, and adding some shrubbery all over him so he would be vegetation geared.

Monkey, You should make the broken chains on his arms longer and get them whipping around in an action pose when you do the model. Make it real dynamic looking that would be awesome looking.

you wrote down exactly what I was going to attempt to do for the main action shot.
I have a pretty good idea of what it will look like, just hope it turns out nicely.

Been away for the weekend. Time to get the ass in gear and post some sketches!

Still trying to flesh this giant out.
I know this so far:
- Giant
- Vegetation
- Will be inspired by Medusa / Centaur
- 3 legs
- wood like skin
- will still incorporate chains
- will still incorporate glow
- his back will be like a mountain slope
- artifact will remain in his stomach

here are some sketches. It goes in order of how he has evolved so far starting with a typical type of character.

unfortunately I can't draw at work other than in my sketchbook, which I am...but I can't post any images.

but, I was thinking of the story line behind Syness (jot / quick note form).

SYNESS : The Earth giant

- formed by vegetation and great magic thousands of years ago.
- Earth giants roamed the world in herds of 5-6. It is believed that their numbers reached the thousands before nearing extinction.
- Syness is the last of his kind.
- He was captured by dark magic of some sorts and held captive within/blending in as a mountain side (reasons for his chains). Maybe captured in previous DW's by an enemy.
- His artifact has been switched on (by one of our very own CGTalk warriors perhaps?)
- While in his deep slumber and captivity for thousands of years, his powers have been able to double. He has grown stronger now that he has been switched back on (nature and industrial working together?)
- Now he walks with CGTALK and its deep ranks to battle in the 3rd Dominance War.

I like it loads. I think you shoudl scale it down abit more, so that his strength is more important than his mass. Also doing textures for huge objects are dificult.
Great concept man.
*(GOZER)-During the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex Supplicants, it chose the form of a giant SLOAR...
