AVATAR – 2d – washka – ‘The Sacred Path’

Hello, this is my first post on threedy forums and it's my first contest.
I've started to work on the concept i'll post a first description soon.
Good luck all, have fun with your work!

[Edit]

Ok, so here is the conceptual idea:

A young god descends to the underworld using its personal mount, a crow. He wants to get a powerfull artifact, an old powerful warrior god's chest armor, sealed on a well protected sanctuary.
The problem is that there are powerful guardian monsters, sort of demons, keeping the place. So the young god will take the form of an elder priest to deceive the guardians...

He needs the chest armor because the powers of the old warrior god remain on it.
Why does he need power? His lover has been taken by another bad god (maybe an evil war god), and this one want her to marry him using force if necessary, poor goddess...
The big guardians will be chained to columns, the chest armor will be on an altar one the center of a wide place.

I'll try to make some research and documentation now, maybe some sketches too.
I'm sorry with my bad english, not my mother tongue.
Cya

[Edit]

I made some sketch test, but the previous concept with the sanctuary is not giving me enough inspiration.
It's too complicated for me, every times the scenery takes too much space and the main character is erased.
So first I'll try to focus on the main character, the avatar.

Concept 2:
A young god incarnated as a warrior descent to the underworld because he is the only one amongst the gods who can claim for an old powerful legacy remaining there, but shadows are waiting for him in the darkness...

I had some old sketches...




[Edit]
From now, I'll use attachment to show my last changes:

Ambiance

I've decided to work on the second pose, I'll get some more detailed sketches next time.
I've tried to get a preview of the scenery ambiance, composition and lightning test:


Will you find the three monster moss hidden on the swamp?
I'll need some more documentation about mangrove swamps and wet atmosphere.

Thanks a lot Munkybutt, if you practice enough, I'm sure it's only a matter of time that you get better than me, keep going on and sharpen your observation senses.
I got a drawing teacher on my school and I'm always fighting with him because i can't accept my own mistakes, but I still have so much to learn... That's how you grown up, accepting your own mistakes and hunting them, and if you can't always track them, sometimes others can help you.

I've been working on the shape and details of my avatar's sketch, I'll start the painting process soon adding some more volume and texture.
But first i need to work on the sketch of the scenery, I have already got some swamp documentation and inspiration for my hidden monsters.


[Edit]
I've been working a bit on the composition of the scenery.



I've also started to paint the face of my character, cleaning my sketch.



Next time, I'll try to get the whole body cleaned.

Thanks a lot Munkybutt, -IdanI-, and penguins, i truly appreciate. Now I'll need to surpass your expectations. (O_o) ...

Bad news for me:
I need to stop my painting work for a while because i got an important 3D project to finish for my studies, but I'll be back on the end of January / beginning of February.
But I'll continue to watch over your threads to see the advancement of your masterpieces, don't worry.
