    CHOW 462 Heaven's gate guardian

    CHOW 462 Heaven's gate guardian

    Character of the Week #462
    Heavenís gate guardian
    Deadline - Monday, May 7th
    8AM GMT


    As Cerberus guards the gates to hell, so too does this holy being defend the entrance to heaven
    from any that would force their way into paradise.

    The guardian is a truly fearsome and intimidating warrior who carries a massive key that unlocks the gate he protects. It is said that one of a pure will and untainted soul could take the key from him and enter heaven.
    Many have tried since the dawn of time, but so far none have succeeded.

    Remember many are many faiths with varying interpretations of paradise in the afterlife. The guardian for Valhalla (Norse mythology) would differ greatly to the guardian of Aaru (Egyptian) the realm of reed fields ruled by Osiris.

    Here is the wikipedia page on different heavens:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven



    • Male or female human or humanoid
    • Suitable to the heaven they guard
    • Intimidating warrior
    • Carries a key




    The Rules:
    - FINALS: Must post in finals thread before the deadline
    - KNEES UP: Must show at least 3/4 of the character, from at least the knees up.
    - FRONT VIEW: Must be able to see the front of design. No back views without a front.
    - WIPS: Must show at least 2 work in progress shots either in the wips thread or finals thread.
    - READABLE: Design must be readable, as in a 3D model could be made from your image.
    - ONLY ONE: May only submit one entry. No multiple submissions.
    - 3D: Must be originally created models, excluding primitives. 3D paint-overs permitted. If you choose to use 3D in whole or in part you must show a screenshot of the model in 3D software with final entry.
    - UNACCEPTABLE: These are not permitted: Photos, photo paint-overs, photobashing, pre-made or purchased 3D
    models
    , rushed works/ rough sketches.
    - NEW USERS: Must submit entries by 6pm GMT on due date, due to conceptart.org's moderation process:

    - DESIGN: Design your character for the brief, not your personal fetish. Nudes without some design are not permitted.
    - READ: Read through the threads; there may be answers to your questions already posted.
    - FUN: Have fun!

    Still missing his wings and a key of some kind. Was thinking of giving him a keyblade, but that might be a bit on the nose.

    (Honestly though, I feel like I'm moving further and further away from the brief, but I was kinda having fun with this guy...)

    @anc... I think that grass would probably be better if it's smoke/clouds....
    @puthakyun... don't feel inadequate, your artwork is just as good
    @mariofernandes... very peter mohrbacher, I can't wait to see how this evolves

    @edgarej.. thank you for your comments
    @anc.. cool concept and rendering. I agree with edgarej about the clouds/smoke
    @puthakyun.. your concept reminds me a bit of the dracula movie armour with a splash of tron. The face is looking of though like a mix between front and 3/4 prespective:
