haha loving these punks, some really nice ideas for accessories.
A bit more tought about the animal symbols idea : maybe the elf could be more associated with all birds (Especially prey bird), the war-priest with all felines (some big and huge lion mane, with a feral look, etc), and the last character related to wolves or maybe monkey (because those baboon in your reference sheet are just awesome haha).
I like the idea of a ''young'' and rebel elf. But I think it would be easier to make them as an united group (instead of one of the character hunting the other). Maybe the war priest is there to ''convert'' the elf to his more powerfull religion? Or he try to learn the way of the wild by living with this elven punk.
I think for now we have a lof of ref for the elven punk-rebel-etc, maybe we just need to find a bit more stuff for the priest and the new character.
For the third character : I think we should do a female. Every high fantasy setting has sexy females .
We have a ranger and a priest, maybe she could be some kind of magic user. Not a weak magician, but a real fury, specialised in close-combat using her magic power.
ok I did a fast concept art for the elf punk, based on the last discussions. I directly painted over the pants of one of the japanese punk girl.
My lunch time is over for now, but tonight will try to find ref for the warpriest!
wow thanks for the link!! just used it to collect new ref
im a bit in a hurry so not a big post of comments (will try to post more tonight)
nice jobs guys, I suggest we try to find a good base for each 3 character for this sunday, so we could start on the real portrait.
I was thinkin Elf ranger = birds, brutal priest = felines, furs etc, maybe the mage/warlock could be associated with reptiles? It could give a nice feminine look, with a lot of pattern, curves and slick look.
gathered some ref :
nice digi sketch ! I like a lot her headgear and face!
I started something more final for the elf portrait since I think the concept is the more defined. I added some stuff based on smokken's silouhettes (especially the feather covered arm). Was talking with Ronaldliu on msn so I sent him the portait to continue it.
I'll continue to merge our different concepts for the warpriest and the mage. I think these 2 needs a bit more concept job before going to the final of the good version.
I think it's important (and fun) that all 3 of us work on each others stuff. So each portraits will really be a true collaborative work
