OK, I thought a bit about our concept:
-First I'd say, that we should go for a horror-stlye. That means: Medieval fantasy characters mixed with modern horror-elements. For example: Canibal witch-->Mix of Freddy Krueger, The Witches, Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Maybe we cann add a chainsaw to a character or something...
Also I saw that it seems kinda "cool" to use japanese elements. Dunno why, could be cool but could be not. Let's keep ours "american"
-Second: I saw some teams doing postapocalyptic sci-fi fantasy but I thought it should be more "oldschool", medieval fantasy... ???
And at least, here is my first sketch stuff for my witch. This is the evil version
Oh, one last thought: Speaking of fantasy and horror---> Army of darkness/ Evil Dead??!!
Ok here are some WIP's and thoughts
First of all, the finished outlines, ready to color...
Little explanation to the characters:
Good witch(left)--> Very old Gipsy witch, travelling from town to town telling people the future with her crystal ball.
Evil witch(right)-->She is hungry, she needs human flesh! She rides on her rusty rifle (uses it like a broom-->boomstick--->Evil dead)through the night to shoot some people for dinner.
My thoughts on the setting: Characters facing each other, landscape/background changes from a pleasent to an unpleasent mood. (From light to dark) I had some trouble with the colors to fit together but I think I got it now.
For that I made some color keys
Used this first color key to change my "already thrown in" colors.
Next time I'll show how it fits together with the lineart but it needs some more work until than...
Note: Maybe add some ravens/crows to the evil side(?)...
I asked myself what's the reason for the evil version. Why the friendly old witch changes into an evil bitch witch? Maybe one solution could be, that every year to "Walpurgis"-Night the dark side raises in her and she becomes very hungry. She has a huge appetite for human flesh than and takes out her rusty rifle, to shoot some tasty boys and girls...
Now work goes on...
Ok so Guntrouver and me decided to do some brainstormin' and I'd say we came up with some interesting attempts. We had Elf Brawlers and Knight dudes and all the cool things on a paper.
Then came the thinking. Maan, which one am I gonna take ? We decided that Guntrouver would do a witch character and I thought that a troll character might be a good idea.
An evil, degenerated troll though.
And a light, quasimodo-style juggler.
I think the sketches were a good start, but along the way, things didn't seem to work out how I thought they would be. I screwed it, to be more precise. At 1 o' clock in the morning, I realized that I was somewhat stuck with a a bad coloration and I didn't really know how to do it better.
Screw that, I thought, and the next day I started all over again and decided that I wanted to do a different race.
A friendly Ent guardian and an evil daemonic Ent.
And thats the background:A healthy forest on the left that turns into a deserted, wasted landscape on the right.
After scanning and mashing them together, I started coloring them via photoshop and also added some textures until I ended up with the final piece.
I hope you like it !
