Rothos – Current
Thanks Trekkie and Nug! @ J3loodT4lon – How’s this…?
Love it 🙂
Great work ams!
Here’s myself as a vigilante archer from hawk007’s contest:
I like this one the best, though you should go back and edit it to include
behind the head. As of now, it looks as if he is just wearing a strip of cloth over his head. You put that shape and scale it to fit the area and it will finish off the hood for you.
Finished another character last night, a Minotaur named Kathos.
I am also working on fleshing out my universe, and have a little teaser for you guys: The world map.
Assuming you still take requests, I am curious to see what you can make my character Hexblade look like 🙂
Just finished up a new character model. Let me know what you guys think.
Here are a couple more characters I created last night/this morning. Enjoy and please leave comments!
Updating the original post to include these new characters.
One of my personal favesâ€¦THE HUNTSMAN! Â
This.. this is amazing! Absolutely love this one ams. Keep up the great work!
Honestly haven’t taken the time to look through the entire post, but what I have seen is absolutely fantastic. Even used an item of two for my characters! Keep up the great work dblade 🙂
Love the sword on Ignastus. That’s obviously not the only thing, but It’s a cool sword.
Thanks Hawk 🙂
If you look though, Drakon, Ignastus, Arcaniss, and Falcon all have multiple details in common:
- Eyes, whether they be blue, green, purple, red.. They are all the same style.
- No other facial features other than eyes. (Ignoring the shits-and-giggles face portraits I did of Falcon.. Consider those ‘non-canon’)
- They all have some form of cloak.
- All have the same dragon tattoo and runic tattoo.
- They all posses the same sword, whether it be drawn or in its scabbard.
- They all have a hood attached to their cloaks, though in Falcon’s case he may or may not have his pulled back. (Haven’t decided on which model to use)
I’d say, personally, I think the third one is the best. Having wings behind a cape doesn’t really work (as naturally they’d need to be in front of the cape and the cape would just get in the way during flight). I like the fact that the cape and the hair together give a sense of atmosphere to the picture even though there’s no background. Their movement suggests that there’s some sort of wind blowing on the character, which always says badass, because when ever you see a badass character with long hair they’re having it blown in wind, right?
I agree, I feel the hair gives that “I’m a badass” feel to it that the hood doesn’t. However, in terms of the cape, it is actually only over the one shoulder:
Going off how that cape is placed, I personally don’t see it interfering with the wings at all.
Okay so I was up a long while last night working on another character. I started off with the character Arcaniss and started editing it, changing the skin color and some of the major details that set my characters apart. One thing led to another and I ended up working in the turned male body, which was a bit of a struggle for me as I haven’t really worked with them that much. I personally think he turned out fantastic, but I cannot decide on which version I want to set as his ‘classic’ model, for lack of a better term. So I decided to post them all here and get your guy’s opinions on them. Without further adieu, meet Falcon:
And for shits and giggles I decided to see what he would look like with a face. Now I refuse to alter the eyes at all, as they are kinda a signature in my opinion for my characters. So with keeping that in mind, I was limited to certain noses and mouths, as they would need to match well with the eyes, and this is what I came up with:
Updated original post to include a new character: Arcaniss
I haven’t figured it out just yet, I decided to go with this:
Still, if anyone is able to figure out how to do what I was asking in my original post, please comment here.
You don’t have to keep going back and adding new pictures to the same post you know. People usually do a post for each picture, or for each series of pictures if you have like a team or something
Yeah I know, but I find it annoying when I try to look through other peoples projects and I have to fish through 28 pages to find them all. I try to keep them all on the same page to make them all easier to find. I could always go back and rearrange them into whatever groups I may put them in.
Very cool and original stuff you have here! Very awesome considering you only started last night. A couple things I’d say, thought. First of all, I think you could shade (as Herr D said). Just use the thing you used for the sword, and change the side and color of it. It’s kind of hard to explain how to do, though, so just go look around the forums to see works others have done. One other thing, too. You may have wanted this, but I saw that the knees were blank on the guy on The Group. To do that, just put knee pads over it (unless you wanted it, of course). Otherwise, the rest you’ll learn from experience (well, the knee thing you probably would have, too). Great job so far!
The program is actually very easy to work with, time consuming but easy. But to be fair though, while I did intend to leave the character’s knees visible, it was only my second creation and I was more or less just messing around. In terms of shading.. I’m scared.
I have never really been good with shading, usually because I can’t figure out where I need to shade. I did read the first tutorial that one guy posted about shading, but as I said earlier I haven’t found parts 2 and 3 yet.
Oh and uh.. updated original post to include another picture: Ignastus
Edit: And yes, I intentionally left him without a mouth 🙂
