Dominance War V - 2D - Pavel Sokov -God of Nullity

God of Nullity.

Thank you all for your help!


“...As The Screams Of A Thousand Suns Cried Out, Someone Heard Their Call, And From Their Suffering and Death, A Child Was Born...”


My god isXrilias, the God of Nullity. He is everywhere but no where, a mere bad thought in your mind,a tear on your cheek.Nullity is the absence of all matter, and the God’s main goal. He will not stopuntil every molecule has been perished, including his own. That is his ultimatevision of peace. But he is not destined to succeed because he cannot destroyhimself. He comes to the bitter realization of his eternal loneliness afterwiping out every other molecule in existence. The pain won’t ever stop, asXrilias is filled with regret. Maybe he has the power to bring everything back,to restart the universe? Maybe this isn’t the first time this has happened…

Hmm...

Maybe no legs? Just kind of a hanging torso sort of thing, like an upside down version of his head spikes, the whole thing held up by the wings. You could make him the god of gravity if you put a recessed pool there and had it flow [B]up[\B] to his mouth.

That dudes head just screams scary, a black hole in his face is rather creepy looking but I think maybe his head is a little large in comparison to the rest of him. Maybe keep the hole the same size but decrease the heads size by maybe 50% maybe 30%.

I really really like this character concept.

God of Nothingness
God of the Void

That would be awesome
Kind of like Exdeath

Killer Flea

Thanks so much for the suggestion! I might go with no legs, I am really considering it!

Phoenix

Thanks, I am really glad you find the head scary. I will try to make it smaller and see if I like it. Its on a seperate layer so it would be real easy.

Wolf

I think my head is a lot different then that!

Tahry

I am really feeling your names! You got them from the emptiness of his head right? It's like a black hole in space kind of.

Whats exdeath btw?

Now lets consider the following choices:
  • 1. God of Emptiness
  • 2. God of Destitution (synonim for above)
  • 3. God of Nullity (the state of being nothing)
  • 4. God of the Void
  • 5. God of Power
I would really pick God of Emptiness, but it sounds awkward so I am really leaning towards God of Nullity.
I want this god to make people feel empty, and pointless. Suddenly people don't notice them anymore. Their mother doesn't recognize them. They can feel themselves slowly..dissapearing?
And nobody knew they ever existed.

Scary, no?

Nullity. Very cool name. I'm glad I could help.

Exdeath is the antagonist from FFV and wishes everything to "return to the void". Here's an except from http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Exdeath

Exdeath's ultimate goal is to gain complete control over the infinite power of the Void, a sentient force that lives solely to consume all in its path. He proclaims that he wishes for control of all dimensions, which would cower over the power of the Void, but in the end, Exdeath himself is consumed by his power and turned into a nihilistic demon. In the final battle, he says that once he uses the power of the Void to erase everything, he will go on to erase himself, so that nothing will exist.


I don't know if you'll want anything like that for your character but the drawings you did reminded me of him.

Awesome concept! My idea for the topic would be God of Dying (as it would devour souls of dying ones) or God of Nullity as you incline to. I would keep the waist belt in the design and as my personal suggestion for the legs - make each muscle a head/soul just like the one or similar to in the belt/waist on your second concept. Good luck!

Why is my thread title not updating in the Dominance War forum view?

Tahry:

That character sounds badass, but I really don't understand what is going on with the concept art for him. Very unclear. But I admire his ambitions! To destroy every piece of matter and then to destroy himself. Badass!

Darkonerster:

Thank you for the suggestion, I will try it out and see if I like it. Got a lot to think about.

I feel strange that I am the only person that skipped the sketching stage. I mean I am satisfied with the top half of my God, do I still have to sketch other ideas if I got it right on the first try?

I worked a bit more on my modeling sheet today. The graphic design of my page is really bad. Do we get evaluated on such things as the quality of graphic design on our modeling sheet? If so I will come up with something better.

Those sketches keep looking better and better!

I doubt you get evaluated on the modeling sheet. It is just a requirement for wip I bet. If you go for the 2D then most likely the composition, colour variety, silhouette, pose and indication of some emotion (like what feeling you want to carry over to the viewer) will most likely apply to the final picture.

Can't help it but in my personal opinion it might be better to move the logo elsewhere or implement it in a different way as at the moment it looks like a badge or a badly placed tattoo.
Keep up the good work!

DUDE that's exactly what I was thinking! He's got the same 'vibe' as good ol' Pyramid Head. I think its the way the head is tilted down towards the chest, and looks heavy and 'uncomfortable'. I am loving that head design! I agree that maybe just a torso and head would look good.

Am I stuck with my placeholder of a thread title? I want it to show "God of Nullity"

Darkonerster:

Hey thanks for the comment!
I don't really want the logo there either but I am not willing to use the black,red and white colour pallete so I must implement the logo somewhere. I could not come up with anything but the chest. Which is kind of dumb because Gods don't have tattoo parlors.

NavigatorJones:

Thank you! I am really glad he has a creepy vibe like pyramid head. That is a really interesting creature. I am proud to say though that when drawing my character I forgot all about him until you guys reminded me.

Here is an update. Legs finished, new abs, and new scales on the arms. Let me know what you think!

I like that anatomy, and the helmet gear, but it looks a bit too much like a warrior rather than a god. Perhaps when you put him in an environment that won't be a problem.
 
Old 03 March 2011   #14
That looks soo cool. Its design looks aggressive. Probably God of Nullity might not longer be a suitable name though unless you would for example enlarge the black hole (aka mouth) about three to four times. As a suggestion God of Evil, God of Hell or God of Daemons would sound more suitable should you keep the cool aggressive alien/mutant like design. Good job!

I have been looking at the forum and have noticed something:
Sometimes people's gods don't look like gods but more like minions.
Other people's work has a sense of epicness that lends itself well to the idea of gods.

Am I losing this sense?

I need to regain that feeling to have any sort of success. I wad thinking doing something with the environment that shows epicness. Like him smashing a planet (I reserve this idea, march 23d, 2011), or maybe mountains flying around him or giant serpents flying about him like in the cg society logo?

But then I lose the name "nullity" and "emptiness".

I'm in a tough spot it seems. Does anybody have an idea of what to do? I am thinking of changing the name after I decide something epic to introduce like the planet smashing to "god of power" or "cosmic god"?

Maybe scrap the entire concept and start from 0?
