Mark- awesome thumb for the spider assassin, that lighting is killer!
And fantastic enviros Adrian! You know how much I love the forest one but I'll say it again XD
Here's my first set of thumbnails for the evil deer/elf! Jessi and I briefly discussed what kind of magic he used, and came up with a bowl of trapped souls - that he uses to make himself more powerful, perhaps?
I think it's obvious which one is my favorite. What's not to love about a pair of marble slave girl statues with soul-spewing action!
Edit: Forgot to add the chain that linked them.

Adrian... I need your speed, you MACHINE I love some of the clothing pattern detail you are incorporating, let's be sure to get that into the finals, too.
Sentinel, I said so on MSN, but I also think the top left is PERFECT, the composition is stellar. Excited to see how you work out the rest of this.
My thoughts on composition for the Evil Human Knight (the King) based on traditional royal portraiture. His robe would be all trimmed in animal furs and his throne will have various skulls and monsters carved into it and a deer head mounted on the top. And the Good Arachnea Assassin... in a church! The evil clergy doods will have a bound lynx or some other animal they are about to molest, and the spider assassin is coming to the rescue all quiet and stealthy-like.
Jessi - those are PERFECT! The one of the Arachnea assassin is going to be so badass with all that stained glass and how it casts light. And on the one of the evil Knight - from your sketch, it gives me the impression his cape is a quilted material. I don't know if that's what you were going for, but I think it could look really lush if done right. Super excited to move on with these!
Awesome attack boards Adrian!! That second one is especially vicious - and would be a really cool move if we ever got to see this turned into a game I also agree with Jessi about the detail in the evil elf's costume, we seriously need to do some embroidery and elaborate fabric patterns.
I'm currently working on some thumbs for the good and evil version of the Fennec Fox, but I took a short break to try out some lighting on the evil elf thumb. I know you were going to try working from the sketch Jessi, so I didn't get too elaborate. Was just trying to figure out how the bowl as the primary light source would affect his face since I'm not 100% comfortable with this set up, and I'm all about the faces
