So finally time to make a thread! been looking around until now and really psyched!
…handling excitement… (((( /x¨D\ ))))
had a hard time with ideas but went from throwaway sketches to ps now and have my first candidate but I’m not very sure about how fitting he is even though I like the concept. will try and do more candidates for great cgtalk dominance! Ü7
Artifact Weapon: Vegetation - Viral hawthorn root
doesn’t typically hit the spot as an artifact since you’d expect a distinguished object… I wonder what judges will think about that… (opinions? :0)
wonder if my viral plant thing is “magic” enough too.
[b]Story :D:[/b] So this guy is the general regent of a cornered nation that lost their icons of sovereignty in conflict already. [i]Our broken empire lost its posture among its rivals when suprised by the living machines. Crippled, to have our long chastised enemies exact submission in return. Our armies are spent and spent again by others, reluctant to spend their own blood to repel the new threat. Our since stringed regent will now gamble the fates of his exhausted people to seak out the agressor and means to forsake his fidelity and abandon his post, now sure to be merely symbolic in the obvious lack of proper indenture. His one sorry bet is to give his body to an unrequiting parasite, long rightfully forgotten in the deepest of our forests. A living, growing weapon from before the old world, once used by our ancestors to conquer any people fearing first for their skin before their nation, and never touched since for it's nature of stinging the hand that weilds it. Such stung that it has its victims spread it further or in return by giving them their remaining vigor in twenty or a fiftyfold while taking their sanity before offering their figure to the landscape for keeping. The General Regent has bared his bones where they are shallow and invited nature. Now we're all forced to put our hopes on the strength of his composure to dominate his mind as he engages the only instrument to oppose an army demanding the means of but one mans body.[/i].. ...ooor something! well there was my pretentious atempt at a story x¨D [img]http://nim.pansarvagn.net/pub/pics/DominanceWarIII/nim%20%28erik_j%29%20-%20DWIII%20entry%20cand%201%20-%20Regent%20-%201.jpg[/img] the main vegetation elements I've wanted to use are buds and hawthorn-like branches (they grow into a caesarian crown from his shoulders btw) and clothes should be inspired by withering leaves of sorts (don't know what that on his chest is). c&c pl0x :V btw. I was out gathering reference material in the nearby foliage today, will photo it and post tomorrow when more light reaches my room... right now I have tiny spiders drawing lines between my furniture x¨D\\ Good luck everyone! :0//
