    Wow definitely intimidating

    So I rediscovered conceptart.org recently and finally decided to participate in 1 of the weekly competitions so I have done a few quick ideas and have taken the last one and restructured it to be more aggressive and asymmetrical so as to look "unperfect".

    I didn't spend a lot of time today. ^^; And I just got a cleaning job, so I don't know if I will make the deadline. We shall see, and there's always next time, if this one doesn't work out! X3

    Albino-Z: Great piece, great atmosphere I'm not so sure about the Hell-part on this one though. It reads more like a Satyr or forest-king this way and I think you could push the design of the character (there's almost none now) a bit further instead of spending ages painting demons around him

    GEB: I mostly like the webbed design of the skin and I can see why so many people like this design even though it's not very original. (no offense, but there's a definite Kekai vibe going in the plated armor and stuff) Also: There are some serious anatomy and proportion issues though. Arms are too long, legs too short and the fact that he's looking dead straight at us is weird since his body is on a slight angle.

    Sorry about being a dick

    Ha ha ha!

    To unlock the mistery of this strange abbility to move the head at opposing angles to the body, google neck...

    I appreciate that the proportions are not wholey human... but he's not human. I think it's probably because I've posed him. You might try this with yours

    And thanks for the Kekai compliment

    I am equally sorry for being a dick

    Pixel: I would normally avoid "defending" a piece (as I find this role non-elegant) but I believe we share quite different views on design and that could be an interesting discussion in a thread like this one. Designing a character for me does not mean cluttering his form with loads of stuff so he does not feel empty. A normal human body can be a valid design choice, sitting (or being connected) to a live throne is design, having bloody feet is design and being indifferent when surrounded by all those creeps is contrast by design also. I find the disconnection of pose/surroundings and form a very simplistic way to view character design and I understand that this view can be highly personal and far from the industry demands, but for me artistically truer.

    I love you both guys

    Geb: I actually meant that the head would be a tad more interesting if it's slightly off kilter instead of staring dead ahead at us And about the proportion thing, I guess he would be more imposing if he'd have more impressive longer legs to go with his longer arms. And touche about the posing, I'm just more concerned with design 3333

    Albino: We don't necessarily have different views and please defend yours because they are as valid as anyone's You choose to define your character by context (something I mentioned earlier in this thread in response to someone else) which is a perfectly good way of doing it and something which I advocate. I'm just saying that the context doesn't read as 'hell' to me at the moment even though I love your piece. I'm not saying that you should go all fire and brimstone, just more darkness or some implied things on the character.

    My King of Hell WIP 1

    Ok guys, I know im late...and the amount of awesome talent out there makes me almost not want to post this..but then that's not the point of this community..so here goes...

    This is my version of the King of Hell..I know there isn't a lot going on..I want to add more dangerous and mean looking things to this relatively docile looking king of mine, but I can't decide what exactly, without it looking cliched...for now this is all my brain is coming up with right now... :|

    Ha ha I'm only fucking with you, but seriously you should pose that guy its a bit dull as it is. I reckon the flared lower legs are a bit of a let down too it just doesn't suit the rst of it.

    OK fucked around with stuff a bit. The blades a bit shit still trying to think of something cool to go there.

    Might try some crit in a sec

    Wow, brilliant round so far! Particular favourites are VegasMike, PixelTuner, albino-Z and trevor, but there's a really high standard overall.

    I decided to go for the Queen route, since lasses seems to be a bit under-represented. I'm sure Hell is fed-up of a male ruler by now

    Not sure if I'll finish this up. Just felt the need to get stuck in.
