POSING TIME !!!
I need to fix on a posing. Which one do you prefer jumpin' one or original/walking one? Your opinion can help!



Quote:
I like the middle compositions better.
Cordero: Me too, miiightyyy god!

Quote:
crash through the pillars
Hula: I imagine, I imagine => here in attachment: imagine this one with da two dragons breaking through it with plenty of rock pieces flying around. I'll just have to paint that.
((o_O) Retreat!!! White flag! White flag!)

Puckducker: I get your point and it's justified, so here I got two solutions, here is mine (but remember that I want to represent something mighty):
-either he uses those big hands to hold the ball? (he may seems too weak to hold it without those)
-either he doesn't because the hair around and his back are strong enough for the job?
A lill' detail: a large mass of hair is quite heavy, think about an enormous one.

Warlock 279: I like the cliff idea too (but Hula's point isn't wrong), about the compo' 5 you're onto the same brainwave than me, I feel less alone, thanks!

Quote:
Yes, crashing buildings would be awesome.
Yeeaaaahhhh puuure awesomenessss !!!
koyima:
Mhhh...hhhaaann, you bre*k my b*lls!
But thanks for constructive comment!

Puckducker, second attachment is an old painting I did a few month ago, it could be an interesting posing too.

Did a posing sheet, I'm still not convinced by the jump, I loose all da weight (lalala ballet! Straight!), or he could be onto a rock that's falling (so I keep the weight thing), hmm he could be above the ball:

Yeah exactly what I had in mind. If you want to have a cool composition why not have him grabbing a ledge or a building with his fist as he lumbers forward between the two beasts... Like he is walking on all four or something...

"Seriously?"

Greek mythology: Iris? Hair symbolic: force and seduction
Bible: Samson?

Usually monks cut their hair (religious symbolistic//offering).

Working a bit onto the gauntlet (g2 & g4 mix, thanks for your votes), wasn't happy with the volumes, it's slowly getting out, I'll refine it more later:

And onto the head too, slowly thinking about the details and trying to define the shapes... I think I'll add some kind of helmet/crown, maybe horns, I'll try to make a complete open mouth with the different parts.
Dinner time?

In regards to the pose, do not use 2! It looks like a super hero pose. In regards to him holding up the globe thingy, be careful he doesn't look too much like a labourer or a slave. He's an effin' god! He would carry the globe like it was nothing. If he did carry something, it shouldn't look like a chore. You could still make him carry something but it should look like he could easily toss it with his weakest hand.

Thanks for your constructive comment mix_mash.
I share your point of view about the infinite amount of strenght he got.
That's why I first wanted that he doesn't hold anything.

But in fact the slave point of view is quite interesting because completly unespected.
Arent't the gods completly bound to their power. They possess the power or are they the possession of it???

Another approach:
Gods can just be the representation of a power, I mean they are the power itself that takes a representation (for the material world).
Neptune or poseidon aren't some waterman with a nice crown and a trident, they aren't the gods of the ocean, they are the oceans ('s powers).

So here we could say that the representation is just a slave of the power itself, just a shell.
I could develop the "doom" approach, the power is something that curse the shell. I also like the weight of power symbolic.

Getting back into the context, in my entry's case (immortality theme), the long hairs of the god "represent" its power, but it's also a curse the shell has to carry (and be proud of). That's why Puckducker's comment is justified imo.
The shell is just a representation (the god's body), the ultimate symbolic can't be represented, it's far too complex and go beyond our limited world comprehension.

Both point of view are legitimate, you decide there is no limits to show something unlimited (he doesn't need to hold it, he's got unlimited strenght and the hairs hold it) or, you decide to represent a limit and you use it as a meaning (he's holding the ball) in this case if the ball represent an infinite amount of hairs and weight, if the god holds it, it means he's got an infinite amount of strenght?
So the limit itself is a pretext to represent the unlimited. Isn't that funny?

I could add it's quite comparable to the paradox of existence, but that's philosophy, not CG. xD

I think I'm liking o2, I'm still a big fan of the potential juxtaposition the wings offer.

Dragons head is looking pretty good, I like those ears. He's looking friendly [mainly because of the eyes I think], don't know if that's the look you're after or not.

Me too Warlock 279, I think it'll be O2, T2 or T3, still not completly decided, but I have to hurry.
Thanks for the dragon, I wasn't really thinking about the eye's expression while doing da work but you're right.

[Edit]
Wings/beard work with T2 too

O2 or T3. Preferably O2 but if you plan to have him carry something (like a planet) then definitely T3

01 or 02 for me
If going with 01 bulky chains that are looped in his shoulders might look cool
