                  I thought for at least 20 minutes about the theme for this one, and that's a long time for me. This is what I've come up with so far. I'll be building some sort of story around it, no doubt, so it's still pretty loose.
                    
                    Norms: Clericon. My character, as yet nameless, was born with the power of the evil eye. When prepared, he can conjure such terror from his gaze he can stop a man's heart and strike fear into the most powerful of demons. Combining with <insert name here> of the parasitic race <and another one here> his power has been increased a thousand-fold. Now he can take on entire armies or even, just possibly, bring down a Demon Lord.
                   
                   I'm counting the parasite as the Powerful Magic Weapon, on account of there's nothing to say it can't be, well, a parasite.
                   
                   This WIP of a WIP of three concepts of a sketch (or whatever we have to do) is a quick bit of fooling around, to give the idea. This is nothing like he's going to look :)

My idea for the final piece, which may not come across in the concepts, is that the parasite enables him to project a huge ghost-image of his face - and his Evil Eye - in the air above his head. I guess I’ll include some special upward-reaching tentacles for that, because in such matters tentacles are essential.


#3

Wow, very Cthulian. I love it!


#4

You got the same idea … almost.
Hell, and I thought, this idea would be unique.


#5

I dig the tentacles. Looking forward to seeing where this goes…:arteest:


#6

waw… nice idea, I love this one :smiley:


#7

Hey Simon,

Your idea sounds really cool, like the parasite idea, and the simbio relation can have great potential :smiley: All the best and looking forward for more of your sketches!! Cheers!! :beer:


#8

Sweet Simon! Good sketch and promising idea. Plus, shrimp-squid critters definetly suit you in these character-based challenges :thumbsup:. Now go bring us a gold medal mate!


#9

Great concept, i really digg the “demon on my back” type monster your have there.


#10

that s totally sick man… love the idea… pirates of the Caribbean influenced?


#11

Cheers guys, I’ll try and get a few more concepts done today or tomorrow. Titan - I’m embarrased to admit I’ve never seen PotC - maybe I should now! My inspiration was actually a book I read ages ago, one of the Thomas Covenant series, in which one of Covenant’s foes - called Kasreyn of the Gyre - had a parasitic creature called a croyel attached to his back which enhanced his powers.


#12

looks great man…keep pushing the concept…


#13

Scary stuff! Great concept! Keep up the good work;)


#14

OK, here’s a second concept. Much the same as the first, really. It needs a bit more dynamism. My next one will have tentacles wrapped around his legs as well as the bandages. I also had the idea that the parasite-projected face could be made entirely of tentacles although I don’t know if I’ve got the willpower to do that (not to mention the character profiles and whatever else).


#15

Awesome, will follow this one for sure!
Composing the big face out of tentacles sounds like loads of work…but maybe it’s worth it?


#16

Great design!


#17

Hey Simon,

Cool sketch. The concept of making the parasite face wiith tentacles is really original :smiley:
Great work, looking forward for more updates! Cheers! :beer:


#18

Very nice designs. The second one looks even better to me. Very demonic :slight_smile:


#19

Really nice Simon, keep bringing it to life.

For me the idea with the projection is great… like it… But I don`t know if it would be better with tentacles. :shrug:
