Only thing is She doesn't look like a demon. He/It does, but she looks human, there isn't anything about here that says Demonic Royal or power. The whole thing comes off more like an Invoker that summons a large demonic shell or protector that envelops her inside of it but she can freely move through, or to me it looks that way at least.

She needs more to show her demonic side too. The sexy fire holding babe coming out of his pants doesn't say that clearly.

But I like the progress.

Thanks glad you like it better! I agree before she was very immobile.

Yeah I can see where you're coming from. I would like to definitely keep her more human looking than demon looking,to contrast the two characters. I did add some armor integrated into her skin (update below) so maybe that's a good compromise? Let me know if you have any ideas on how to make her look more demon looking, while not pulling it too far. Thanks for the useful crit!

Very true - especially in movies

Update:

Ok, I updated the sketch a bit. I changed how she is exposed a bit, and added pincers to cover up her nipples (and to make her pose look more natural). I think it's more tasteful, like almond rocha Ah, I can't think anymore about what I changed, but there might be one more thing I need to go take a soak in the hot tub. I'll work a bit more on this later!

Good luck all!!!!

Hey I think that adds a lot. I was just thinking of adding the stock set of rams horns, but I like where you are heading.

Her shoulders and chest look awesome with those new spikes. The two creatures blend better together now. I think it's coming along

Looks much better. The two are quickly becoming one. The only thing I'm not quite sure on are the feet. I know a lot of people do feet like that, but it's never been a favorite design aspect of mine.

Very cool. Strong concept to start off, gives you an awesome position to begin with. I think you should really play up the fire element across your character, will help really sell the character in the center.

I have to agree with SR_6274 though. I've seen a lot of amazing concepts last year that I kinda thought were ruined by that look. It was kinda funny too, because the image would start loading from the top and you'd think "Wow, this one is pretty amazing" and then by the time the image has fully loaded it looks like the artist just gave up on the concept.

Very nice concept Jensen, although I agree the fire looks a little out of place at the moment. Probably should have other areas of his body emitting flames to tie it all together.

Great looking demon though, I look forward to seeing this progress

Good luck during the next eight weeks!

Haha glad you like it. I wanted to stay away from regular horns as much as possible

Thanks Ichiban!! I tried to integrate them with the fire more. Hope it works 0.0

hey SR! Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I really should change the design. Just for clarification, you mean the feet right (or lack thereof) and not the centaur-style legs? Just wanted to make sure Thanks for the crit!

Hey Puckducker! I agree the fire was definitely on its own. I did a bit more merging, so hopefully it all works a bit more together

Thanks for the crit! Gotta add more flames!

Update:

Ok, so as the suggestions... suggested, I needed to integrate the flames in more. I decided to pop her body spikes a bit more by adding the fire/lava between her and the spikes. I haven't finished it yet, but I'm so tired -__-. Now I have to get going on making those legs not so generic

Anyways, here's the image:

Thanks for the nice words! they mean a lot!

Update:

Ok So I'm going for a bit of a different look for the demon-lord. I did the head first to direct the rest of the body, so hopefully this will work better. I haven't gotten around to the legs or the rest of the body yet, but I'm definitely going there
