DWIV - 3D - Cracadoo - Flock

Ok, I'm in.
I hope I'll finish it this time, unlike before. I think I have nice idea. I'll go with Demon Prince, more then half raven, less then half human. It's demon of sorrow, he's having flock of ravens with him. They are feasting on corpses of enemy dead bodies therefore restoring our hero's energy while he is reaping life from other forum's creations. His power is spreading despair and sorrow, his weapon is large scythe.
Concepts tomorrow, my photoshop decided not to work. I'm taking care of it now.
Comrades, take no prisoners.

Loving the idea man! Don't like scythes though, they doesn't look like weapons, even when they are suppose to be just that..

Here is sketch, just to know where I'm up to. Sorry for ugly image, just few minutes scribbling around to get sort of shape.
More tomorrow.
@Kirgan:
I've decided for scythe because it's going along with ravens head somehow. It have similar shape as ravens beak, and will do good in final composition I hope.

I like the scythe as well. Maybe if you curved the top of the wings it would flow better with the scythe?

Thx for reply on such messy drawing guys. Here is new, more detailed one. Still messing around with proportions and anatomy. I want to try to give support for wings flapping on the chest of the monster, but i don't think this will work...
I'm a little worried about Threedy colors and logo, as I don't know where to put them on the character. Only place I can find at the moment is peace of cloth that is covering groin.... He might get belt or something, but I would hate to put too much on him. Anyway, I'll continue drawing.
Tha tha.

My Photoshop is killing me. It have some stupid lag when I'm drawing, so it makes it totally unusable. I'm sick and tired of having it, and I'm gonna go with some alternative. I think i got some program called Photoshop essentials with my graphic pen, so I'll try that this evening. No updates for now, sorry guys.

Wow, looks great so far. Really like the idea of raven-like hands instead of human hands. It adds more to bizzare look.
Looking forward to see how this work is going to be developed.
Good luck!

Last two sketches look good. especially the last one. I'm liking this, and all I'm all for the scythe.

Very cool direction; bird people are always nice fantasy ideas. And your guy has a nice silouhette currently and some fantastic wings. which will of course, be the main draw for the eye. Lookin' good!
