    Ionic: I really like the orc concept. I like the idea of a weak character who is a summoner.Great work.

    Well you could work more on the elves sketches. My main concern is about the design and concept stage and the time that's left for the finished works.As i see it the elves concepts are done, you could however work on the entire drawing if you want(change pose,expression,etc). But the characters designs are pretty much ready i think.In any case if you are not content with your results you can re work what you don't like.

    I have to read the rules, but i think we need to submit every single portrait. Perhaps we could also add every concept with the two versions as you suggested. i like the idea of the pair concepts on the same sheet(it clearly shows the differences).
    I will check this on the topic thread and then i will post in here.

    Dark Eyes is part of the team now so he will do at the moment two portraits
    making a total of ten portraits that needs to be done for deadlines.

    Cheers

    Hey guys! Thanks for having me.. I'm proud to be part of the team! Let's fall into some rabbit holes...

    I like your idea for a younger goblin, Dimagyan. It goes against the stereotype of a nasty, decrepit creature. In this sketch she is a bit older but the idea has set me on a course... I will probably modify the design to make her more nubile.

    A paladin is a kind of divine knight, so I was thinking that in our universe, maybe an ancient ancestor of the goblins, somehow usurped god-like powers from the elves. They are graceful, honorable creatures, with elemental powers (controlling nature, animals, etc...) I'm thinking of making them armored like a knight, with purplish-gray skin and white eyes.

    I'll post a full armored version tomorrow, let me know what you guys think...

    Dark_Eyes: Good start! that's very nice. I like the idea of a young female goblin. Im not to sure about a paladin class.I like the idea of somehow "divine" character...related with nature something ehtereal and spiritual.but perhaps a more practical kind of outfit it fits better the universe we are building.As have you see it, the magic presence in the concepts we have made so far is not spectalcular, idon't know, i guess we have to see it to check if it fits.
    Remember that the final characters must be in portarait format, that is full frontal figure.(check the link in my first post to read the rules).looking forward for your sketches and ideas.

    Dimaygan: I agree that the paladin idea may not fit... the rules specified that they were looking for us to break stereotypes, so I wanted to pick something a bit uncommon for a goblin. In fact, I was already sketching out this heavily armored version and i realized that it was a bit over the top. (cant help it some times.. )

    soooo... I ditched that one and tried to tone it down, maybe fit it into the other designs. I'm thinking of an alchemist class. Unlike, say the orc summoner, maybe their magic is found in the mechanistic elements of nature (potions, chemical compounds, explosives etc...). Perhaps this is a bit more "down to earth" design wise..

    I just found out I'm house sitting for a friend next week, so i should have plenty of time to knock out some illustrations in a big, beautiful house ... all to myself!!!

    Ionic: Nice stuff... I have a feeling your finals are going to blow me away! I second your idea to illustrate each character's good and bad sides together... Keep it up!

    Dark_Eyes:very good. The alchemist idea is very nice.Regarding the look of the character it doesn't have to be related with the elven and the humans,we need to make all the characters as if they live in the same world, but they don't have to share all the clothes,accesories and style. What we should think is about utility of the design.For instance: the good elf is a priest, so is quite different from the human fighter.Both characters have different roles so they need different designs.
    I like the suit, i don't know if the armour is needed for an alchemist.I think that character could have a less "warrior" look in favor of a more "intelectual","professor" look. Breaking the stereotype of goblins but in another direction.Some ideas.again, nice work.

    Ionic:Great work with the good elf.I really like the colour pallete.

    What do you want to do with the background? thats a good element to unify all of our concepts i think.
    Using a similar pattern and/or colour guides(for instance intense colours for evil and pastel colours for good backgrounds,etc)
    I think that making our backgrounds according to general design idea it would help to relate the characters.
    What do you think, Ionic and Dark Eyes?

    I would start to polish the human.

    cheers

    DIMAGYAN: Visually amazing renderings! but. the evils aren't very evil brother... dirt, grime, scars, overwhelming dread... I totally get the contrast between the characters... but I'm not seeing good and evil... I'm seeing 2 different factions or sides.

    When I think of evil... its glowing red eyes, scars, spikes, angular or gothic designs, malice in the facial expressions. even the vibrant backgrounds are dropping the evil factor... try desaturating the colors and just use accents more.

    love the work as always keep it up guys... gonna work on the elvens now and hopefully get good done, and evil started.

    Ionic:Thanks for the comments and suggestions mate.

    I know what you mean about the evil versions.Perhaps i'm thinking too much in the context.
    My main interest is to make the human character not evil but "bad" to the "player" point of view.In other words as you said different factions or sides.

    The kind of changes that can happen if the player choose to play as the antagonist side of the hypotethical game. As an example: let's say the player start with the good human but in the game began to make choices and actions that led him/her to play for the other side...in this case the player began as a fighter (a peasant armed) and can choose to work for the "royal" army on the other faction. Something along this lines.
    Perhaps i need to put a more malice in his expression and changing more the general feel of the head.

    Mainly i don't want to make an evil human character with body changes trhough magic,etc.
    But for the rest of the characters that's good because we have a priest and a summoner(one could change because of the religion and the other for the source of the magic) For the half elf i want to make something inbetween.I would change the colour of one of her eyes and perhaps the hair(to shown her elf part).Regarding the alchemist i think it could show the change made by "science" at least what represent science in our universe, so perhaps she can change part of her body through alchemy.

    So then we have: Ideological,politic,monetary,etc change(human). Religion, cult, adoration,etc change(elf). Anger,culture, religion, ideology,money,etc change(hal-elf).
    Source magic,cult,ritual change(orc) and Scientific, power thirst change(goblin)

    It's a bit stereotypical i guess but i like the range of posibilities for swaping sides with all the character roster.

    I should writed this before, sorry

    What do you think?
