DWIV-3D-Octogeranio-Untitled

Hi everyone,

well, here I am to join the threedies. I'll try to help with a 3D evil abomination. No name by the moment.

Here I post two primer drawings of this spider-like creature. Seems very cute, but I'm interested on giving him a more rocky looking. Since it is suposed to live in caverns, this could make him mimic the environment. He's also blind and has only a primordial mouth (that will be visible through translucient skin), so a pet with enormous eyes, placed on his shoulder, will guide him in the battle to the happy end of lots of enemies slaughtered (I'm still thinking on the pet-character).

Waiting for adds from the fellows in the thread to improve the desing.

Salu2,

Octogeranio

Good to see another spider-like entry! It looks a little off balance right now to me as the legs are behind the main mass so it looks like it would be constantly trying to avoid falling forwards onto its face. Pretty good aside from that though

Cool. I think he's very compact right now, it doesn't look like he'd be able to properly balance his front torso/head. Maybe give his legs a big more of a wider stance and spread things out a bit. Great start though, keep at it.

you're right...

Yes,

I thought there was something strange but I haven't noticed it. It's necesary to put the legs' insertion of each side closer one to the other, and advance them fordwards a little bit.

To give him a more rock-like aspect I'm also going to add some features like reduced armoring in the shoulders and other places, so that this extra weight will lead to break his no-mouth repeatedily by falling fordwards.

Thanks for the add.

Salu2,

Octogeranio

more ideas, less time

Hi,

here I post some references I'd like to include, since in the next three days maybe I'll be away from the PC.

I'm going to enlarge the abdomen, ending it up in two little pseudopods helping to deposit eggs on the ground. This, aside with redistribution of legs will correct the balance looking.

For inspiration I always go to the classics, and Henson is the most in puppeting. For the armor parts I want something dirty, away from polished metal, and more similar to that of 'skeksis' from The Dark Cristal.


For the pet-guide I have thought in something with a face like 'mystics' from the same film, but with very big eyes, like those of mounts of dark knights from Labyrinth, but in dark evil black. Body, maybe something frog-like.

Only some ideas.

I'll post again when concepts completed.

Salu2,

Octogeranio
