So, I was planning on drawing more of a dwarvish character, but I got sidetracked into reading about Japanese weaponry and the history of Middle-Earth on Wikipedia. Reading about Japanese weaponry and mythology led me to draw this character. He's an Oni, an ogre-like being of Japanese folklore. The third eye on his forehead really isn't a traditional feature of Oni, but it's a common feature for gods and demons in Buddhist cultures.
On to the next drawing!
Worked a bit more on the face. I'm not sure with her skin color and color scheme. I think it's probably better to give the good version normal skin color, and some bright spring color scheme, and give the evil version pale skin, dark color clothing. But that would be too ordinary, something people expect to see. I feel that maybe, I can give the good nice vibrate color clothing, and the evil side pale skin, dark de-saturated clothing plus some vibrate red.
Moai, I like your orc, he goes pretty well with my assassin in style~~~
Burtzum, your ideas on Dwarf head structure are very similar to mine, as may (or may not) be evident in this sketch.
A dwarf! Like I remarked in our conversation today, his body is nice and Japanese, but his head looked like it came from somewhere in the former Soviet Union...Oh well!
So, yeah, I'm gonna be gone this weekend. I won't be uploading any sketches or chatting in Messenger, but I will probably have internet access for at least some of the weekend, so if one of you could post any decisions or major discussion points in this thread, I'd appreciate it.
flourine: coming along nicely! love her make-up. her hair seems a tad high (the front part that is pulled tight against her scalp). Really digging the colors.
burt: Nice facial studies! Funny... he looks like someone I know
moai: totally like the japanese demon guy. His horns reminds me of this deer thing with horns or fangs growing out of its face, don't remember what it's called. I really like the costume you have going on on the dwarf.
I'm working a different version of my character...then I'll alter the one I had and make her the evil side~~~ Hopefully we will all have a character by the end of this week, so we can working on bring them together.
I like this strait up human, love the color, love the shoulder plate. even at this early stage, I can see some personality showing. Is he gonna be a paladin? one of those lawful good kind? or Ranger, the chaotic good?
I really don't think you need to add animal/creature elements just for the sake of make him look weird. Let the boys worry about being weird, LOL. Maybe it's the helmet and armor, he feels really Aztec/central American to me. I think we need to start thinking about how to bring our characters together, either by color scheme, small accessories, or recurrent patterns. Especially we're doing a band, so maybe we should give them something similar.
Oh well, everything is looking preeeeee~~~tty good so far.
