LXD - HERO - Lord Xanadu

Feel free to get your Olivia Newton-John jokes out of the way if you need to
I do alot of character sketching so I thought I would challenge myself to not just do a character but also an intricate environment. The first sketch is my idea for the hero to be in a dappled jungle/forest scene in kind of a you're-gonna-get-it-now pose but on the subtle side.

The second one I comped together some reference and part of the original sketch to give myself a sense of scale and shade value. I had originally intended to have sort of a path of destruction through the forest and nothing else but now I'm thinking I may have to at least put a silhouette of the monster in the distance. and there is an indication of another dead/dying guy in the left corner.

Great scene!

It remindes me of Doom.

I really like the composition and will skip the ONJ jokes (I was going to make fun of his bunny ears and do a "little rabbit foo foo hopping through the forest joke ).

You've set yourself quite a task with the background, but I think you're on your way to a very cool image. Any thoughts on the what you'll do for the monster silhouette - humanoid, dragon, beast?

Heh no not half rabbit Those are kinda horn like protuberances from his helmet. He is a cyborg sorcerer so i wanted him to have a fairly outlandish outfit. You can see the most outlandish version here,

LXD1

And a simpler 3D version here

LXD3D

The simpler version will be what I am going to use most likely. I did the really detailed one mostly as a test. On the silhouette, I am probably going to keep it very vague but I'm leaning toward some sort of ogre-ish type guy.

Sorry about the bunny comment - didn't mean to derail. I'm looking forward to seeing the ogre-guy make it in there. This will be a pretty cool departure from your other LXD treatments.

Afraid I have made very little progress so far, still working on my composition. I can't paint unless I have lines to paint inside of so I am lining out the major elements and refining the hero on different layers. This is them all mashed together.

Looking very good. I like the layout and the tree work - can't wait to see it with some color. Have you thought about doing any quick color sketches? Or are you just going to go for it?

I probably should try to a quick color version, so I don't get stuck obsessing over one little spot before I get a better sense of where it's all going. Still have some elements I need to add also, like now I'm thinking of adding some bodies or something on the road, and still have an injured guy to add.

Slowly, but always, remember?

Great scene, by the way.

Ok, well I didn't make the deadline. You would think a month would be enough for "Speed Painting" but I guess not for me But I have had fun working on it, it's been quite awhile since I tried to do some straight up painting and not coloring line work. I'm posting what I have so far just for fun, any comments are welcome. I mocked up the back ground some, so you could see the atmosphere I was trying for, but there is still quite a bit of work to do. I'd say it's about half done right now. I'm going to keep at it and see if I can get it to turn out.
