    Hello, final! I may do some digital touch up but it's all acrylic and tangible. I thought I'd try using some of my paints for a change, maybe learn something.

    Hello, process!

    Pencil drawing on chipboard, intending to paint it and possible digital touch up.

    Puts more money where his mouth is: brainstorming/sketchmush

    I have pencil sketches clamoring to get near a scanner but for now here's a fast thumb:
    placeholder of doom
    Trim the wordfat: vampiric disease, souls stored in trees.

    grand topic and strange that... I was thinking of ideas on the thruway this morning and soul collector was one of them. Psychic mind trips powered by my coffee addled brain. Here comes another killer round...

    Sounds like a blast, something perfect for me. Question, are we talking about an evil creature that gathers souls for wicked or selfish purposes or a psychopomp, who takes the souls of the deceased to the afterlife?

    Sweet topic, this is gonna be fun.
    Ok, here's some sketches with my basic concept. I gotta work out the mechanics, but the robot-like Collector relies on the organic host for commands:

    Finished Soul Collector(UPDATE):


    The Soul Collector waits in his lair, lurking in the shadows for unsuspecting prey. His lair is built like a labyrinth, effectively making his victims lose their sense of direction. When the Soul Collector senses body motion, he gets close enough to his prey, where he can immobilize them with his tail stunner. Once the prey is stunned, he begins extracting their soul into one of his multiple soul-preserving containers. The Soul Collector is in charge of acquiring souls for the Omnipotent One, a dark entity that feeds off of souls to sustain it's power. Not much is known on this being, simply because no known human has ever escaped the clutches of the Soul Collector.

    Been awhile since I've been here but I can't pass this one up.

    placeholder for sure.

    *Final*-Oh god this is close...hope I made it in time...



    There are some things that lurk in the dark that are far worse then death himself. One of those things happens to be a soul collector. By nature it is an evil spirit that roams the dark bottomless pits of hell. However it does go up to the surface from time to time to create pure utter chaos. The evil spirit will usually possess a strong willed warrior who fought countless battles. He will consume his soul first then take control of his entire body. From there the dead body will become a haven for infected insects and grubs. These terrible insects or in-fact minions of the soul collector. They not only act as scouts but also are capable of consuming small portions of the soul that they readily bring back to their master. The soul collector will roam the earth as if a plaque going from village to village and wiping out the population. When the soul collector feels he have collected enough souls, he will return to hell and hibernate until he is ready to strike once again.

    Fine - I'm in...must get going sometime I guess
    Okay - first WIP and face study - I'm thinking kind of a soul-smoking death, stoking her soul farm to pull souls like smoke from the charred dead.

    Interesting, i'm going to try my hand at this one.....

    quick sketch

    http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...lCollector.jpg

    Update pencil rough, man yall move fast. I think it's coming along pretty well, gotta figure out how i'm going to do the snakes, i hate that they only make 8.5x11 scanners affordable... : (

    http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ectorRough.jpg

    I had to downsize this one to fit on here, but here is the ink i finally finished, had to do it in two parts cause it's so big then past it back together in photoshop.....Spent most the day on this...lol....I know i'm not super fast like most of yall on here yet....I'm pretty happy with it so far, gotta figure out what i'm gonna do for the color now....



    update...laid down the flats in photoshop/Painter.....Gotta figure out the background, then work on some values...probably won't do to much rendering and keep it simple (cause i'm not good at painting..lol). Let me know if the colors are working ok....it's not my strong point obviously

    http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ollector-1.jpg

    Final for now...still open for critique.....great job everybody,can't wait till everything finished...amazing work from you guys

    LOL. That's Steve Buscemi. Ikuru wins! That guy has that creep factor alright.

    Glad you folks like the topic so far. I'm excited to see what you all come up with! I'll be checking the thread constantly like a kid looking under the tree on Christmas eve.

    Zoroko: The deadline is usually Sunday midnight, sometimes a little past that. Which makes it the 27th of May if I'm correct.

    Rogzilla: Like Stephan mentioned, its pretty open-ended. He could be pure evil, snatching souls, taking them by force by any means necessary. Or he could see himself in the side of the good, collecting wayward souls who missed the soul train headed for soul heaven (or hell).

    AMernazri: Cool face studies

    Deon: Hot 'ugly' woman, if you get my drift. Fabulous!

    Timothee: Very cool contraption for soul storage!

    Peter_John: Stop reading my mind. You might see things in there you probably won't like!

    Bumskee, Jag and everyone who might not have the time to join: FIND TIME! Would love to see your take on the topic!

    All sketches are looking sweet so far!

    'Aight that's enough cheerleading from me. Get to work, ladies

    ah crap ikuru i had a similar thing in mind. I heard soul collector so immediately i thought 'darkness' but then i thought 'nah too typical'. So then i thought 'soul brother' then i was like hell yeah. Then i saw your interpretation then i was like 'fuuu* me'.

    Im in but i dont know with what...thinking...thinking...

    Inner Beauty

    Hi yall, this is my first post in this forums ergo my first CHOW, i hope to make some interesting and helpful friends here
    this is my concept, the characters wears a mask that feeds on souls to grant the user beauty, or so they said.

    Concept:
    Thinking he would gain his desired beauty, the deformed huchback accepts to wear the mask and collect the souls that it needs to make him beautyull, but as he collects souls with the help of the mask we dont know for sure if he is getting prettier but he is indeed getting stronger and faster but with each soul he devour he is also getting hungrier, he continues to feed upon the souls of the living and as if he was a cacoon something starts to break through his skin, is it his beautiful self? or is he becomig something else

    Got kinda sloppy in the end i blame ainting with the mouse for that but oh well here it is

    Final
