Sorry for the horrid neglect of my SB. School last week was insane! I shall give this SB some serious post love. Here is more of my work from my cgs class.
So i decided to work on the concepts for http://www.gameartisans.org/dominancewar/ Dominance War 3 to help get more into the concepting groove and to get practice in for next year. I plan on covering all four classes.
Here are the first batch of thumbs for my Stalker/Warlord concept w/ an artifact empowered with darkness/void.
Here is my concept so far.
Stalker/Warlord: He or she is part of a mystic society of Buddhist-like culture. They have recently come into posetion of a ultra powerful artifact known as the Negator. The Negator is the embodiment of the void god Eridanus power left on the mortal realm for his own sadistic glee. The Negator has the power to erase one or hundreds of organisms from the physical realm with a single stoke of its blade.
The Stalker/Warlord is called Ecks Gee. Playing on the word Exegesis which is a Buddhist teaching on the emptiness of persons and phenomena is unique to Buddhism, constituting an important metaphysical critique of theism with profound implications for epistemology and phenomenology.
Ecks hails from the SunYata clan (infusing a bit of Feudal Japan into this) Where they teach everything one encounters in life is empty of absolute identity, permanence, or an in-dwelling 'self'. This is because everything is inter-related and mutually dependent - never wholly self-sufficient or independent. All things are in a state of constant flux where energy and information are forever flowing throughout the natural world giving rise to and themselves undergoing major transformations with the passage of time.
This plays off the Buddhist word Śūnyatā.
The SunYata clan teaches this through their own brand of martial arts. In this I figure Ecks can be a Warlord or a Stalker. If Ecks was a warlord he could use the SunYata teachings to call upon the strength of other living organisms that will allow him...almost taping into a life force unseen. If Ecks was a stalker he would use the same concept to be able to disappear and reappear by willing himself.
Now here are some thumbnails. I need to work on my silhouetting a bit more after doing this. Maybe more thumbnails are needed. Also i shall post thumbnails of the Negator weapon soon.
let me know what one you like the best

I like the figure drawing, but the right arm and face look a bit off...the arm for the colours, I think, and the face because the features, the cheek and nose aren't doin' it for me.
But lovely on the back and legs, I think...
thesadpencil: Thanks for stopping by and for the C&C! I gotta get back on that concept work you liked.
Quinn Simoes: Thanks man! i keep em coming!
FedDark: Thanks for commenting!
Santon:Thanks for the input. I think alot of what you commented on is my problem im correcting with trying to keep my eyes on the ref for about 80% of the time and 20% on the painting. So still having that ratio off a bit make some proportions look a lil wonky.
Lander: haha. yeah found me. you are doing quite well in the class yourself! thanks for stopping by.
CGS class work
Drawing a skeleton w/ low back lighting and slight side light from a computer monitor. so trying to get the colors right from dark shadow to bright bone color is interesting. still in WIP stages.
post #98 is brilliant, leave it like it is.
