DWIV - 3D - Tekei - Istryne

Latest Image:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, so here's my first sketch.
He's a norm invoker called Istryne that utilizes frost magic. As of now I'm trying to figure out what magical item(s) to give him and I have yet to decide if he conjures his magic with a wand, staff, his hands or something completely different.
Over all I need to make him look more bad ass... I have a feeling this isn't even close to enough.



It's frustrating that all DWs are during the spring which is when we are doing our project courses in school. They do take up most of my time but I really hope I can finish this year.

Anyway, feel free to drop a comment or two. I really need all the help I can get.

Update.
Still not sure how to make him look more ready for war... maybe I don't have to?
Back to school work for a while, will probably update again later tonight.

Oh, and I'm still in need of any comments and critique you guys can throw at me

looks interesting so far. Maybe a cape or helmet, chain-mail etc could be added for extra battle flavor

That's a whole lotta weapon for an invoker! I love the pants, those are awesome. Looks good.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Very kind of you.
I was so tired when I got home from school yesterday that I fell asleep right away and didn't wake up until 16 hours later :O
I will try out some different helmets and see if I find something I like, Beindulin. Thanks for the tip.

If he uses frost/ice magic maybe some thing like the crystal armor on Seigfried in the Soul Calibur 4 videos, looked cool on him. Of course a little less french and more SMASH because this guy is a Troll.

Another Update.
Added a helmet and fixed some other minor stuff during a break in school.
Will fix more when I get home.
