(NSFW) Kinda, I guess, just to be safe.
Hello, this is my 1st post here. I'm working on a HP Lovecraft themed game called Mark of the Old Ones that is currently trying to get kickstarted (link at bottom).
A little disclaimer, I am a 3D animator mainly but my company is pretty small so I'm currently working as a character artist handling all aspects from concepts to having it prepped to put into the game, and doing concepts I enjoy. Here is the process that I went through to figure out the look for the main character. The only criteria I had to go by is that there is a parasite that is attached to a human and enables him to swing around. In this particular case its a WWI era pilot. Farther down the road some aspects of the character did get shaped by the mechanics of the game engine, mainly the tentacles which had to be able to stretch, bend, and be segmented.
I am not happy how the front side picture of the character turned out for a number of reasons, might fix it up or redraw later if I have time. I need more practice I suppose! There is a finished version of it on our site and kickstarter, but another artist finished the background for it so I'm just putting up my work. All critique is welcome! Also at bottom concept for one of the bosses in the game that I can show. The idea is it's a different evolution path from the parasite but same origin.
