    Horus... (reeeeeeeally basic wip)
    Attachment 698765

    Didnt want the helmet to resemble a hawk too much as the silhouette would be too unoriginal. Neck guard is a spin on the egyptian crown

    concept: Horus is the philosopher/scientist of the envoy, disillusioned with his own race (no thanks to Set) he constructs a 'vocalisor' to make him the only member able to communicate through speech with the homo sapien. This allows him to become a highly regarded god and gives him some power in the envoy

    Pahavasa is intriguing me the most at the mo' the colours are great. Great helemt design gtgauvin

    Edit: better wip

    Hmm, sounds nice, although I immediately thought "Star Trek"... xD

    If I'm entering I'm either going for Sachmet or for Bastet, I think

    @Posh:
    I know the movie and I LOVED the visuals. For the story, however... xD

    I think I'll be portraying Seshat (goddess of writing, wife of Thoth, Mistress of Books, she who opens the door of heaven, etc). Got some ideas there....

    Some quick notes:

    Migsta: Love the silhouette and the suggestion of details on yours.

    Daestwen: Love the star suit for Nut and the composition of her seeing the planet for the first time. Lovely.

    Posh: I like the snakey tendrils coming off of Isis.

    DarkLogik: No sketch yet, but I like the direction your thoughts seem to be heading.

    Carnifex: Like the first sketch...the attenuated ears particularly.

    Baxter: The helmet is nifty....The hands look a little thick and clunky, but they are aliens technically so who knows what their hands are really like.
    she sings from somewhere you can't see ...

    Done some scribbles, Horus/Re as a tall bloke in armour, with antigravvy tech wing things and a birdlike helmet, Thoth, sitting in some kind of hoverthrone, typing away, brain connected to the information matrix, only ever half there, and finally an idea for the Golden chariot, which carries the sun (energy ball thingie) three "gods", and they are battling Apep, the black serpent, which the envoy had captured previously.

    C&C gratefully recieved

    Here's my Thoth. Took some inspiration from The Predator as well as The Rocketeer for some strange reason.
    Here we go again y'all.

    CKLamb: Yep, I made myself some funky new brushes and picked up some stuff on lighting and using a lower flow setting on my standard brush as well

    What does lowering the flow do?

    It puts less 'virtual paint' on your brush so you can do a lot more with subtle blends and small hue changes for added colour depth. I tend to put it as low as 20 to 30% and put my opacity on pressure sensitivity for that extra control in defining form in a subtle way.

    Naunet (aka Nunet) - godess of watery abyss she's represented as a blue skinned snake-headed woman. Those poor ancient Egyptian folks obviously didn't know too much about high-tech diving equipment

    Lineart and some messing around with basic shading and custom brushes

    Pixeltuner, that's amazing! I can see the Predator influences in it, but it's quite nicely unique too.

Might opt for a second 'character' or a close up of the face from another angle instead.

    Still running over ideas for Isis. I like the concept of the head dress and hanging cloth but the rest of the clothing looks a bit too much like something from a tacky goth clothing shop, pondering what could be used to make her seem a little more regal.

    oki here is the result of my first little go at chow xD
    i have chosen to do toth, quite a bit i want to sort out on him atm, but this was just for mapping out general features. on his staff that monkey nit looking shape near the top.. well its actually meant to be an hour glass, i think im gona fll it with like a acid green bubbling liguide, and have it looking like its filling the staff shaft. and his left hand is typing on a ultra flat screen floating monitor. wanna develop that abit more two. this is the first digital thing i have done without a reference, would love some comments on it as in where i need to improve.
