DWIV - 3D - Khemist000 - Birthmother

Heres a couple of concept scans of the general direction I think im heading. Still not a 100 percent on the design, but ill try and hammer it out with some more concepts. It will probably be a really really tight fit on the polycount (if I can make it that far ) but we'll see. Just wanted to toss the sketches out there and see what you guys think.

The basic premise is that she is the Demon Queen and responsible for spawning new demons. Shes a massive creature with her whole midsection basically housing the demon fetuses in egg-like translucent sacs. Her hair is more like living tentacles as they are akin to Medusa's snakes.

that is one ugly ....(censored)!!! I´d say you should melt together the upper torso with the worm stuff a bit better...or on the contrary, make it like it´s just hatch like aaa....aaa...you know, like a butterfly from that thingy inbetween the worm and the butterfly (sorry for the bad english...what´s the word I´am talking about???)
edit: it kinda looks like the 2nd thing I was talking about, I just didn´t notice it for the first run...

Maybe if the embryo sacks were more and went lower, like a huge beer-belly, and the tail end were shorter, like a throne/cushion more than a tail. In the end a lot of the focus would be on the embryo's/character so the tail would get cropped anyway - if not the scale of it just might not show any of your work in the final shots. Plus, you'd save alot of tris. Really neat idea!

It IS ugly! I have no idea where this character came from, Im normally not that dark and twisted, but its really grown on me and Im running with it. I will definitely play with the design to incorporate both sections a bit better, and emphasize the stomach / embryo sacs as much as possible. thx for the feedback.

Have any of your relatives (or maybe you) ever listened to heavy metal of the early 90s? Or late 80s? You were tons of the shirts back that time with the album covers of the different bands, with pretty similar graphics
Maybe some of these burnt onto your pupil

Here are some TERRIBLE scans of some more concepts. I really like where this is going and cant wait to start modelling and sculpting.

The main change is bringing her bottom half into more of an octopus-like base and losing the tired worm-tail theme. Also expanded her midsection to include tons of embryo egg sacs making the overall fatness of the character to be more menacing and gross.

CnC always welcome as is utright bashing and hating.

Let me know what you think.

That is disturbing. And totally cool. Are those tentacle flails in the bottom picture supposed to be her arms? If so, I think it might be cool to give them some more arm-like structure. For example, they could be normal arms (with muscles and elbows and such) down to the forearms. Then her forearm muscles splay out into a bunch of tentacles instead of hands. Similar to your earlier concepts.

EDIT: I guess you have that already. I just kind of missed it amongst the scribbles and sketchiness (and as you put it "terrible scans")

Thanks guys.

Buzzy: I definitely want to push the "arms " a bit further as they are too "tentacly" for me still. I really dont want to go down the road of normal hands as I want this to be as disturbing as possible but not really sure yet. maybe Ill keep very normal like hands, but made out of tentacles? More sketching to do!

Looks great. The only thing I see is that the face reminds me a lot of Venom with the way the mouth is and the way the tongue sticks out. I know this is only a rough sketch, but you might want to make sure it is different from him.
