DWIV - 3D- slangford - Demon Lord

Well, I figured its about time I throw down for one of the fights... and since you guys here a 3dtotal have been so nice, I decided to pledge my loyalty here. LET'S DO THIS!!!

Since I am a monster guy at heart, I decided to go with a demon lord. Most of my designs usually fall into other two classes, but I wanted to do something epic for the war... so the bigger the better.

Here is my first concept.

Nice sketch! Really cool design too. I love the second head/arms in the body too. Not sure if the traced in wings will work out in the end, but it's still just an early concept, and a cool one at that.

Very cool concept. He is absolutey massive. I'm just wondering if his arms need to be a tad bit bigger in mass.

Hello.

Love the hinds legs, its the most dominating part, the arms feel a little bit skinny, or maybe just too overall skinny, ad some thicker parts and keep some the same ?

Concept I

So after my initial sketch, I took a step back and started the concepting phase again.. now knowing what general direction I wanted to go.

Sculpt WiP I

I'm working out the rest of the concept in 3d. Using a mesh made from zspheres, I'm trying to feel out the proportions and shapes.

Maybe raise the back a little. Right now it looks like he will be constantly taking a dump. Other than that, great start on the 3D.

The proportions in general seem pretty weak right now for your Zsphere concept. I mean, the hind section of the original idea was really cool; very monstrous, very intimidating and a nice silouhette. This guy seems almost like a dwarf or midget to that concepts'...normal person. Up the scale man! The bigger, the better!

The left-most guy on your second 2D concept is pretty good too. He seems very proud, and that's intimidating. We need the 3D work to start heading in that direction...
