What do you think about this
05-11-2009, 01:37 AM
It kinda hard to read the works, but the design looks cool. He kinda reminds me of and ex-pilot with the goggle he is wearing.
05-11-2009, 11:26 PM
A very unique outfit. Looks like a combination of past and future clothing/armor in one. I'm interested to hear his story.
06-11-2009, 02:12 AM
Thanks a lot buddies,
As soon as I can I´ll type what
is hand written. By now, here´s
a little story of him.
Sorry about by bad english.
He used to be a selfish and arrogant mercenary, part of a deadly
team. They planned to start something really big, but things gone
a bit wrong. The Deadly ones got too much greedy.
The well know military base, Area51, was taken by the group. Lots
of technologies and documents were stolen. Now, they have a full,
highly dangerous, personnal genetic altered army, and total domination,
is what they´re looking for.
Iago disagree of their political thoughts and is up for the fight
aganst this new threat. Te fact is that despite of his arrogance,
he believes on freedom. And he is ready to garantee it to every
single person on this planet.
A mercenary turns into a hero today!
06-11-2009, 03:39 PM
There it is, I hope you like it.
Everything he has, was stolen. That´s way his suit is a great
BTW, I think I´m going for an heroic moment and a dynamic
action scene, where I´d like to show Iago´s agility and flexibility
working together with he´s other habilities...
07-11-2009, 11:02 AM
I like your concept, you had some really nice ideas for his cloth. The only thing that bothers me is the right leg.
Perhaps you should try to make the legs more symetrical, with same shoes on every leg, and perhaps a little aberration on the right one.
And I would draw the legs much longer, at the moment his proportions aren´t right. I made a quick edit on your image, hope you doesn´t mind.
08-11-2009, 03:10 AM
lookin good. i like the idea between the cyborg and post apocolyptic survivor look... if thats what your going for... Good Work, cant wait to see finished piece
08-11-2009, 06:26 PM
I totally agree about the proportion.
Yet, I don´t disagree about the boot,
but I´m trying to avoid symmetrical
vests. Any ideas?
08-11-2009, 09:43 PM
He sound Smart, and is ready for anything. :D
09-11-2009, 05:51 PM
Thanks a lot for all comments,
critics and suggestions, for real.
Here´s a tiny and slow update.
I still have to acquire so many
skills, but I´ll get there!
BTW, I´m going to start building
his heroic scene, where I´d like
to show his agility and flexibility
working on his favor together with
his others aptitudes.
10-11-2009, 04:14 PM
This is what I came up with
for Iago´s Heroic moment.
Still at rough stage, but c&c
are really welcome.
Hope you like it. He´s putting
to sleep his ex-teammate, now
the leader of the dangerous ones...
I think the leader will be a genetic
altered rocky beast or something

10-11-2009, 05:50 PM
Nice angle on the head. :D
10-11-2009, 06:38 PM
Thanks a lot man.
The last update for today.
10-11-2009, 07:27 PM
I like the fact your hero has strong and weak points, I think that's good for a charadesign It gives credit to it. And nice dynamic pose!
11-11-2009, 09:57 AM
Thanks a lot washka.
Soon I´ll update the image.
11-11-2009, 12:46 PM
Ok, I think now I have all I need
to Iago´s scene. Now I just have
to paint the details, refine shapes,
I thought really hard to get here,
but I am pretty happy with the
results until now.
Hope you like it.
11-11-2009, 01:04 PM
I really like the action and energy of this composition (and I'll stay away from the nose picking jokes :D). I also like how you made the hero much beefier than the first sketches.
You could add a little more depth to your scene by having the giant push his left hand even closer to the camera.
You've got great intensity on your hero's face and also good anguish on the giant. This shot really does a nice job of capturing the moment just before the fatal blow that you can feel is coming.
Can't wait to see how it progresses.
11-11-2009, 02:44 PM
He has Akuma, face sweet. :D
11-11-2009, 02:47 PM
I totally agree with AbdulttheNewt. The composition is quite dynamic and explosive. Any idea of what you're going to put in the background?
11-11-2009, 03:19 PM
Thanks a lot for the comments and suggestions.
washka: Thanks man. I wanted him more humanized, you know...
M_Cederstrom: I guess he is a distant cousin of Akuma, haha...
AbdultheNewt: He is grabbing Iago´s right leg, haha... How can I improve that, to make it look more convincent? I think I´ll also try the closer to the camera version you suggested.
zanman:I thought of some smoke and clouds, a very intense sun light and maybe a wall of rocks, like a canyon, with a few secondary characters watching the final battle. What do you think?
I´ve started roughing out the colors, but I guess that I still need to change some details first...
Hope you like it.
11-11-2009, 03:47 PM
M_Cederstrom: I guess he is a distant cousin of Akuma, haha...
That work for me :haha:
12-11-2009, 01:54 AM
Today´s latest update. I am
so tired, gotta go to sleep...
12-11-2009, 07:33 AM
I liked that pulse around the arm, but it seems you've let that idea go...
You could try folding his two outer fingers, like he is bracing for the punch!
uuu realy cool buddy :), an idea from me you can make the scene darker and the hole in his hand to have some strong light, the same for those lines on the hand, plus you can make highlights on the monster body where that light should be casting i think it will make the scene look more dramatic (hope i spell it right :) ), aniway this will be a cool scene, good job
12-11-2009, 12:45 PM
i agree wth everyone about the bg. and i like j.b.'s idea too.
when i frst took a look at this page i thot that u made a goku and space ghost fusion lol.
but hes looking great right now.
for bg , may be show them fighting on dojo grounds or near ruins.
12-11-2009, 02:19 PM
aby arty: Haha... Thanks man. I guess I´ll keep the ruins as bg.
J.B.: I agree. Since I´m not a pro, I´ll take care of the GI at the end. And the hole will have a really bright shine, great idea.
hulahuga: After of taking care of GI, will be SFX´s time, haha...
Thank you all for your great and kind suggestions, and for keeping motivating me, really.
Here´s another update. Slowly, but always, that´s what I say! Haha...
Hope you like it.
12-11-2009, 02:46 PM
I really like how this is coming along. One composition (again, me with the depth comment) suggestion would be the coincidental line between his left leg and the giant's shoulder. I'd recommend bringing the knee in front and pushing the shoulder behind.
12-11-2009, 03:02 PM
Great tip! Thanks
I´ll make it better, but
here´s a last update by
12-11-2009, 06:06 PM
This guy kind of "ate" some alien technology, hehe...
PS.: Gonna be out for a few days, because of work.
15-11-2009, 11:08 PM
This is looking really good. I can't wait to see the final.:D
16-11-2009, 02:31 AM
Hey!! Good to see another brazilian around here =D (eu acho q n pode ter postagem q n seja em inglês, intao lá vai...)
I really like the bad guy design! The whole scene has plenty of motion, which is good!
Are you using tablet or mouse? Turn on the 'pen pressure' setting on the brush options if you're using a tablet, if not...you're doing pretty well with the mouse! ;)
Try to play with colors...I agree with JB as to put a darker background, and try to do your best when it comes to the lighting sources...I believe a light source coming from above and from the bad red guy would be very nice!
Overall, great work so far ;)
17-11-2009, 02:15 AM
Thanks guys for all the compliments and critiques. I´m
surely learning a lot with you. Resenhista, good to find
a BR fellow around here, too. :D BTW, I´m using a tablet.
A pretty cheap one, but it´s a tablet, ;P.
Here´s another update. I went back to shaping with B&W.
Gone really hard into shadows and now I´m coming back,
detailing with highlights and midtones. It´s a rush,
since I´m at novice level, haha... :wall: :smug:
Hope you like it and hope I´m still able to finish it
in this century, huahuahau...
nice, this is coming up great, with your talent i'm sure you will make the cash to buy a better tablet, mine is on the way to meee :D hope this week i will say good bye cheap crap tablet :P
17-11-2009, 11:32 PM
keep up the good work
18-11-2009, 11:34 AM
J.B.: Thanks. That was kind of you. Wich cheap crap one do you have? Mine is a trust (aiptek´s chipset). :drool:
animationutz: Thanks man. As I always say:"Sloooooooowly, but always", haha... :dance:
Here´s another lil update. Worked on the neckerchief and started to
define the left arm. Did some changes on the nose, also. Hope you like
it. See ya.
nice foldings you did there, my tablet is an Aiptek 14000U, i also have an old Wacom Volito2 but you can't call that a drawing tablet because of the amount of pressure you have to aply to stard drawing :), now i'm waiting for an intuos3 large, yesterday left San Francisco :P still some days until it gets to me...
18-11-2009, 03:46 PM
Nice high light on the face. :D
19-11-2009, 02:15 AM
I´m concerned, because things
are going so slowly... Another
20-11-2009, 03:21 AM
Yay! Today was a producent day.
I´m pretty happy with the results.
Did some changes on his vests.
Here´s the update.
I guess the blurred non-defined
fur from the previous image, was
more realistic. What do you think?
20-11-2009, 04:57 PM
ooooo I liked that fur...If you could mix the 2 you posted above, that would be awesome!
But I think his face is still too dark...the whole picture in general, but that may change when you'll do the coloring ;)
Great character designs nonetheless!! Keep it up! =D
21-11-2009, 02:20 PM
Looking at my reference images, could
check out that llama´s fur is really thin
and defined. I have changed few things,
including the right hand, face and leg´s
21-11-2009, 02:22 PM
Still a big work waiting for you on the hands :), care with the shoulder posing. Keep it up, nice work so far!
24-11-2009, 11:35 AM
Unfortunately, I won´t be able to finish
this painting, so I´m officially leaving the
Thanks a lot for all the kindness, tips and
compliments. I hope I can see you again
God bless you all.
24-11-2009, 12:07 PM

God bless you man ;)
24-11-2009, 12:32 PM
Sad news - please finish and share later. This was coming along very nicely. I'd still love to see the completed work.
24-11-2009, 01:33 PM
Yee, no good.. I like last one, and the end seems to be close
25-11-2009, 08:49 PM
