I say Q4, make it so! lol Sorry for that Capt. Picard moment. Or go with Q3 and the little guy holding headphones close to his hears and the big guy portion holding up a boombox, 80s style.

And I'm not just saying that to get you to "visit my thread and tell me what colors look best" :P

Cheers~

I agree with the paintover of Joseph,
for me, I've a preference for B3 because I think there are too many similar concepts for this edition of DW ... even if your concepts with the two characters were interesting.

I like B3 and B4; the tail coming from the back helps with the silouhette. It gives him some kind of hunched over appearance, which emplies more mass. Bigger = more imposing, so I like that.

Unfortunately I can't say I like the mini demon idea Warlock. It's a cool concept, but now that it's in 3D, it looks pretty weak. Like how moms carry babies on their chests with those harnesses - he just looks 'in the way'. He looks like a deformed version of the guys on the 'B' side - like a conjoined twin. And those people....they never...work....right.......*

*so not PC, my bad


...

Anyway, nice to see some life back on your WIP thread! I know you were working on something, but the waiting is what kills ya. Totally worth it though; man, were you busy.

Buzzy - Haha, yea, is totally creepy in that kinda way.

Joseph Pomeisl - Yeah, I like what you're thinking there. Gonna grab so of those ideas I think. I need to be careful tho, don't want to get to "creature from the black lagoon" looking with it, and need to keep some of the demon elements for fear of having him fall out of the demon lord class. Thanks for the suggestions.

Novian - I like Q4 in concept, but he ended up looking a little cumbersome in 3D. I'll have no such part of your colors...DOH! Too lait. ;p

Holo - Nope, no dropping out here, I'll be there at the deadline...somehow...just not sure how yet. How do I join this 3DT LW user's club? ...I feel left out.

chris_solo - Yeah, that's kinda what put me off my idea a bit to be honest. Seems like everywhere you look this year, its four legs, or four arms or some combination there of. Guess the extra 1k in the budget was an excuse for extra limbs or something. The traditional bipedal humanoid is kinda in the minority.

VinsanityV20 - Haha, ya, that's not very PC, but I won't hold it against ya. I did actually have the conjoined twin thing in mind.

Actually, wasn't too much work to be honest. They're all derived from the "plain demon" just a matter of tweaking some loops and then tacking on the new parts.






Alright, looks like I'm going with B3/B4...I guess that may have been the direction I was leaning already. Thanks for the imput guys, it really is very much appreciated.

I'll be back, in a day or two, hopefully, with the first real update, only a month or so late to be getting started. ;p

Feel no pressure, its the enemy of time.

Glad youve got your concept sorted, I think your right with B3, although Id consider frog references for the legs as the war seems inundated with hoofs and they dont realy sit well with your aquatic chappy, in my opinion. Youll get the low, creepy look I think your after without compromising the upper body hopefully.

ha ha, I agree!
yeah, I look so much this year and maybe I think my project is really simplistic to other side ... but as said Pierre de Courbertin (a french sportsman) "the important thing is to participate!"

Glad to hear you're moving forward with the B3/B4! Now, I will patiently await more WIP shots to blow our minds

Right on, really looking forward to seeing some of these designs knocked out. Good strong concept, so I hope you get the chance to get your character done for the deadline.

Steamtrooper - Thanks. Usually I like the pressure, seem to get my best work done when the pressures on, but not so much this time. Seems everyone's liking the webbed feet, so I'm putting my faith in the masses and going with 'em.

chris_solo - Thanks. I know what ya mean, mines feeling really plain and cheap compared to a lot of the entries. Too late to do anything now, gotta roll with what I've got right?

VinsanityV20 - Nothing mind blowing yet, sorry.

Puckducker - I'll get something done, maybe, don't know how good it'll be tho.

Joseph Pomeisl - I gave the fin/wings I good hard look, and I kinda like them, but I couldn't find a way to work them into the design that I was comfortable with. Added the slits in the side, like you' suggested, I'm thinking of them as gills. The spur on the leg like you had inspired me to do spikes on the back of his legs instead, and those will probably get the webbed treatment in the end. Do plan on doing the hands/feet that way you had, because they look cool that way. Thanks for the ideas.



Holy jumpin' monkeys, its like almost a real update!!! I don't usually sculpt much [due to hardware limitations] so this is really just to get some of the design elements sorted out before I start poly modeling.

I know what you're thinking, I used the same Giger-esque ribbing everyone else is using. I have a slightly different take on it in mind for the final tho, so we'll see if that plays in my favor any.

Anyway...without further-ado, the first real WIP image...
