Avatar - 3D - Creator - Meduru the Betrayer

Hi there,

let me introduce you to my avatar character Meduru.
He is one out of 15 dark priests with the assignment to control the population of northern realm, reigned by the mad lord Hamar.
Dark priests are very mighty mages who are capable of using dark techniques and also form the elite units of the northern empire.
Meduru is till now the first dark priest who betrayed the lord.
Because of war he was able to escape in the border areas between the northern and the southern realm.
(This is the idea till now. Details will follow with the progress)

So yesterday i startet the first concept, that you can get an idea how a dark priest looks like.
Anyway i hope i will be able to finish this ^^. I'll do my best.

First off I really like the concept art. It's going along pretty good, but one thing kinda bugs me. One of the things I really like about your character is his face. In your sculpt he is kinda losing the smoothed over, amphibian face, mainly in the chin. I think his torso might be getting a bit too bulky also, mainly in the waist.

Great concepts! His stomach seems to be pushed back alot, which affects his pose alot. Perhaps you could help that by thin his torso a bit. I think you should continue to make your model similar to the first concept.

Thanks hulahuga.
Well the problem on making his torso thinner is the anatomy. It wouldn't match the rest of the body. But i will go back to zbrush and work over the model a bit.

Cool!
I like the composition and the angle . There is one thing that I noticed and that is that the ears are straight, which they aren't in your concepts
Also maybe you should add some more stripes to his clothing. :P

Excellent work, man. The contrast in the wood texture looks a little too high, though. Doesn't quite fit with the rest of your colors. Something with an older feel, perhaps?

thanks for the comments.

@hulahuga: Thanks for youre accuracy of observation.
But i don't reference completely my concepts and i think i will animate the ears within the morphing anyway. I also will overwork the cloth when i'm done with the rigging.

@Jibberwocky: Thanks.
Well i also will correct the textures after i'm done with the rigging but i will consider your suggestion.

But for now i think i will focus on the environment to get a better picture of the final image.
