The Old King: In the 4th Realm, there are many differnt peoples roaming and living there. Mostly it's a place where warriors often find themselves ending up in. Essentially it's a wide open marsh detla plain. There are great battles going on, waring tribes, creatures, giants, a few left over Gods and lastly some of the Old Kings. Below is one of them. He rides a horse like beast (as seen above), rules the Southern area of the plain and wishes to rule the whole thing. The armor and sword he was burried with, have deteroriated over time and to make due, he's fashioned new armor out of the different beasts roaming there, namely scarab plating for this chest.
The anotomy is a little wonky...i'll need to fix it before painting.
nice updates. :3 I like your colors a lot ! the one with the horse, yeesh the colors say something to me.
I have a random crit - all your hands/wrists look wonky! Study the wrist and hand, even if it is hella annoying. It will do your figures more justice and believability when they are holding things like weapons and/or just standing (hands can often give off a sense of a figure's personality) ~
naomiful: Thanks. Yeah...i'm seeing the whole wrist thing a bit now. hmm. I gotta keep an eye out for that when I'm drawing 'em.
here's an update.
I wasn't really digging the sketch above so i reworked it. Here's 3 steps.
First: I used a beefier pencil this time and just scribbled until something appeared. Second. I layed my base, this time consisting of a dark orangey-brown (which i'v used on all of the Egyptian pieced, to be consistant). Third. I began painting some of the fun areas first, working from basic local colors to color details.
hi jason. you´ve got an very interesting sketchbook in here. dynamic sketches and nice digital progress. looks like you are putting a whole world together atm. is this stuff personal or for a client?
on the pic with the horseman. wich is one of my favs here , and if you want to finish . please move that feet more down. i hope to see it finished .
yo keep it up!
Thanks GoblinShark. It may be awhile before I go back and finish those two. It was more of a quick sketch type of thing. But, yeah, eventually i try to finish them.
Here's an update on The Old Pharaoh. All that's really left to do is his legs. I wanted to give the sense that his armor, shield and sword are really deteroriating. The guanlet is actually the ectoskeleton of one of those giant scarabs. So with that I'm trying to visually tell his back story; he's been here for ages, his armor is chipping away slowly, and he's killed many creatures here.
Little Enviro update today. This is where the Canyon gradually ends before giving way to marsh-like plains. In the story the main character is traveling down this river and as he finally comes out of the canyon, he looks behind, realizing theres no way back.
Here's another enviro. I've been wanting to do a real epic landscape...but all my sketches so far have felt very unnatural, very unorganic, yeah know. But I think that this sketch may be alright, with some slight changes...so I'm gonna start painted tomorrow.
I kind of lost my rythm that I had for the past few months. I got sick after Memorial Day and ever since I just haven't felt like drawing each night. Tried to do something productive today however.
Update: Below are some silhouettes for the Godess Ma'at. She is essentially justice in the underworld. Usually represented by an eagle or a hawk, she's literally the scales on which the dead are judged. If a person's heart weighs more than a single feather from Ma'at, they go to Heaven. If, however, her feather weighs more, that person goes to hell. I wanted to show her as pure, with some bird/feather like elements in her dress.
Second image is a drawing of Osiris on his throne. Pretty basic.
