    HULK STAND VERY STILL.

    Err, very, very early progress but progress nonetheless. Peace and love tree friends.



    Edit: Corey, yeah a cluster of small birds, not crows though, they are evil mutha's. Would an owl be too played out? Mmm...yeah, scratch that.

    Thats cool, but personally i think you could [This comment has been removed for vile suggestions]


    On his armour- I would reverse the direction of the plating on his arms so it points towards his elbows instead of his wrists, this would be more practical in terms of how it folds to protect the arm, and also means he would be able to punch his arm through someones torso and have it hanging there impaled as the scales fish hook the corpse.

    I reckon he would look good with some piercings and muddy bits, and a bit of necrosis around the areas where the armour has embedded itself into his flesh.

    ..And dont google search necrosis if you've just eaten.


    CK- A small flock would be cool, I for one would be running in adorable fear if someone summoned a bunch of sparrows to come fly round my face and peck at my soft bits.

    I like that he is homoerotic, it certainly gives him a 'new' quality that one may not expect to see in an orc- he is strong yet soft, its a nice juxtaposition, and makes him look more burdened than if he was like GRRR I AM MAN. That demon on his chest is looking fierce though, in a good way, if he was a bit ' hello sailor ' we would have more of a problem :p

    Yeah, Monday is the last day. Don't forget your character description too. Hope the family emergency thing turns out okay for you. If you need me to do anything just ask.

    Any ideas for the final presentation yet? Also what sort of size do our final images need to be? and are we all going to have our character portraits sized to the same height so they line up nicely?

    Oh, and another question, with the descriptions are we going to have them incorporated as part of the image,presentation or just written up in the final post?

    I agree. I think we need to get it sorted quite soon so we know what we're doing for our presentation so that its not all left til the 31st.

    I'm finishing off the dark elf tonight and starting work on the backgrounds so hopefully by tomorrow evening they'll be done so I just have to write up the descriptions and put my finals together. Hows yours going?

    Thanks corey, much appreciated. This is where I am on the dark portrait, the monitor im on is completely different to my mac at home so this might look completely out of whack so let me know:



    Need to sort out the legs and refine a little bit and ill be done, same with the light portrait. In terms of presentation, I think we just need to set a height for everyone to stick to and write the character descriptions within the post, not as part of the portrait, otherwise we are bringing in Graphic Design/Typography issues that we don't need.

    My main is finished, I'm just trying to finish off all my extras. Haven't started on my character descriptions. It's going to be close for me.

    Hey nim, looking good- can we get a little wildness in the hair/some rugged manly body hair/blood on the evil, and some roughness/dirt and scratches on the good? just to roughen him up a bit, he is looking a little too clean and futuristic atm.

    I alspo suspect it may be hard for people to tell which of these is good and which is evil without reading the description, Ideally I would round out some of the edges on the good, as the shapes there atm are evil..but it is evil armour, perhaps put a cliché holy spotlight on the good, to make his half lighter? or make the castle in the background of the evil in ruins/smoking? Evidence of a battle at his feet, lots of blood spatter?

    Go wild, really emphasise it. At the moment I'd be prone to thinking the evil side was good because his organic shapes are softer!

    Ill work on it a bit if I get a chance. I don't agree that the evil side looks good though...at all.

    Edit- er, sorry didn't mean to sound like a dick, stressful weekend, my bad. Thanks for the comments, I'll see what I can do

    I've finished both characters, I'm doing the backgrounds now then need to write the descriptions. I'll post what I've got by the end of tonight!

    Are we still going for the 750 px height for the finals?

    nimzicki: Your character is looking good and the colours look fine to me overall, though you could maybe play around with the colours in one of them using colour balance and hue/saturation in photoshop to create more of a contrast between the two versions? This would be a quick way of making the different versions more apparent.

    Its ok

    I may not have been clear -

    The good side has sharp, straight lines and cool colours, while the bad has more of a soft focus ' orky gonna give you some fiine lovin' thing going on, his evil demon eyes are warm, looking almost like candlelight, I cant help but think of him as a misunderstood hobo hero, who just happens to have a crazy demon posession. If i saw both on a battlefield i would be more scared of the armour guy, because he looks well protected, the 'evil' version looks a little exposed by comparison. I think shifting his pose to be more confident and 'dont mess with me' would help there, but obviously theres no time for that now.

    Bear in mind im incredibly picky, i've repainted my own good mage 8000 times because i've got stuck in a dumb perfectionist loop, so take this as an outsiders point of view more than anything else D:.

    Don't get me wrong, I understand where you are coming from, just been staring at it too long I think, appreciate the suggestions, hopefully I'll have time to amend things.

    Again, sorry for being a bit short, not at home and a bit stressed. Whose going to do the final submission? Midnight Monday hits corey last but he might be working the night shift again.

    Well, seeing as CK has more characters to juggle, it seems fair to let him have the extra time, but if everyone is done by a reasonable time i can make the post.

    Actually, letting me post it would allow me to work up until the last second, which I definitely need. I just need you all to post everything properly here, so I won't have to fumble around with extra work. Tonight (early tomorrow morning for you), I'll make a post here outlining how I would like you to submit your final work, wips, and descriptions to this thread.

    One last thing, for the character description/bio, my first impulse is to say DON'T write it in third person. He, she, it..etc. If you can come up with a clever first person narrative, please do. Try to get in your character's head. Write it from a neutral standpoint, as in neither good nor evil. This would be right before or during the event of our brief story. IF you can't get something going then by all means write a standard 3rd person.
