DWIV - 3D - function - Untitled

Thought I'll give it a shot, don't know how far I'm gonna get though.

I'll probably hop the bandwagon and do demons, and my first thought was gemini style demon children with a pet abomination. But working with three characters is probably pushing it...

Sketches to come later today I guess. Cheers, everyone.

Here's a quick paint of my first idea, though I'm sure I'm going to go a different route.

Sharper teeth and a more serrated Gum Line, ie, distort it heavily so it looks like that bitch of a demon flossed with Daddy Dooms Guitar

I like the colors but more threedy blue on the chick

I kinda like it, especially if the abomination's eyes are sewn shut with the reigns[?], that's especially creepy.

Not much of an update here. Took Sathe's advice; stole Doom's bass strings and gave it to the abomination, changed the red horn/claws to blue. But with the teeth I'll probably end up making them a bit thicker and less evenly spaced vertically on the gums. Then I'll probably add some threedy themed hard armor on the chicks.



I'm still wondering about having three characters though, more characters mean less polys for each of 'em. And also because I'd have two demon princesses as well as an abomination... I hope that's allowed. If not, then I think I'll stick with the abomination.

Any thoughts?
I'm going to sleep. Damn early classes.

Ok, so my earlier concept is out of the question, I've decided to stick with one demon princess with pretty ice/cold powers. Here's a quick sketch:



Haven't had much time to work on my entry, I still have a week left before my spring break starts and I've pretty much done all I can to shoot myself in the foot this term.

I like the ice princess, but I say go for her mount-creature. Looks like it would be more fun than a standard humanoid character. Unless of course you REALLY explore the dragon head shoulder pad thing. If you made it massive and maybe a symbiotic part of her, it could be interesting. Good stuff either way.

it would be cool if the dragon became a part of her; sorta wrapped around her waist or something like that - also might fit in with the icey protrusion design you have going.

khemist000: I don't think I can add the mount, because I'd consider that as an abomination and in the brief it says no combinations allowed. But I have been thinking of the dragon being partly alive and growing out of her back.

Joseph Pomeisl: Yeah, I'll probably have the dragon coming out of her back; maybe have some stunted wings apparent too. :O I could add a tail!

Moved the horn to her right side too, so she can actually look to her left. ^^

Added some rough colors, also a very rough depiction of how the dragon comes out of her back.

Looks good, why don't you make the horn on her head ice as well? it's odd for it to have a different colour and not sure if you're planning on placing the 3DT logo on her chest or on the clothes, but the clothes seem a better choice to me. Ice dragons are so "cool"

miycko: Aha. I dunno why the horn is a shade different.

Moved the logo onto the clothes. Added some headgear. Also lighted the skin and the hair to better match with the whole cold theme. IMO, it still looks really boring, but whatever. Gotta keep moving while I'm still motivated to do so.

That's a really cool idea man; having the dragon form out of her is pretty damn unique if you ask me. I think you could push the sorta symbiotic relationship between them a little harder though; have her skin sort of transition to ice scales in some places besides her arms, maybe give her ice dragon feet or something. But what you have now is very cool and has really nice colors. The legs though are definitely lacking a bit; the balance between dragon and ice demon princess is like 50/50 above the waist, but 0/100 below...
