Dominance War IV - mrgrotey
show user profile  mrgrotey
Did a doodle or two today, this was the only good one, but its clearly not finished yet. I'd like to make the hands less obvious crab-claw-like but that will come with the progression.

Hopefully I'll get past the concept drawing this time lol.

I'm thinking this one will be a Demon Lord with Cold/Ice power of some sort. Ive heard underwater and fire don't go hand in hand.

Let me know any thoughts, its not much but I have to make a start as I missed the start of the comp :s

Looking cool Grotes. You got a lot of different parts going on there. Shells. Crabs. Sideways unicorn horns. Might want to pick 2 creatures to pull from? Just a suggestion. Go gogo

I see you've included your trademark, Mr Grotey : D : D : D

But seriously I'm beyond psyched to see the end result...If you're inspired by undersea creatures, I'd think nautilus shells and those creepy worm things that hang out by undersea lava vents.

Jesse: Yeah I wasnt thinking 'unicorn' more Narwal tuskso as to keep it all in the sea creature theme. And I see what you mean about the seas shell thing but that was mean to be more shellfish plates, but i'll see where this idea goes and I'll try to keep to 2 main influences.

matty: lol ah anoher fronat comp lol you found me out, that was my thoughts on where this would go all along! cheers mate.

mathias: ta v much :)

WC: cheers, yeah tis not too good timing for this round

Update: finished off this drawing but its not a final concept, just a starting point. The weapon isnt final lol, just a moment of sillyness :D

I need to somehow incorporate ice/cold power into him, anyone got any ideas? any weapon idea eother? im thinking like a Thor hammer though I may stay with a mace.

very nicely done mg, although i feel it's slightly confusing on closer look
the left shoulder seems to go nowhere then the left arm is under that not coming from the shoulder area at all
there is a bandolier type thing coming from the center of the chest to his right hip- crustations are somewhat symetrical i think- apart from huge claws on one side sometimes and stuff- should be full of anemonie grenades or something lol
not a fan of the pincers though i gotta say- and how he grips the mace with one i don't know
lurvely head concept though mate- nice dimple in the chin
the feet i don't really dig either- they look like flares on the legs then upside-down flowers- petals spread- for feet
also the right leg looks like it's got reverse joints (like an elephant or a dog if you know what i mean) but the left leg is bipedal humanoidalesque
makes me feel i could probably outrun him on a good day- not what you want for inspiring a sense of fear
anyway- saying all this i have every confidence it'll look great when you're done with it you overly talented monkey you
good luck too

I also am not digging the feet. Kinda look like shrimp tails. Any chance of making his lower half sort of a crab-centaur thing instead of a biped? What about a Staff, if it is ice/cold that you are going for?

joey: haha never thought about that haha

ktonne, great crits. I cant comme-back-atcha on a couple though due to my badly drawn parts ;)

Shoulder: yup badly placed but will improve that for the model.

Bandoleer: this is actually (well it will be) the triangular section you see on the underside of crabs, just a little mor pronounced, as is symmetrical though it could have been drawn better lol

(ignore the red text/lines, they are not mine)

Pincers: there is only one pincer, the right side is a two fingered hand whith shell/armour plate on the upper sections. again will be easier to see in the model/other drawings) but yeah i dont like the left pincer either and that will probably be some sort of ive invoking appendage of some sorts type of thing.

Head: ta :)

Feet: I know what you mean, they are supposed to represent lobster tails in a odd and slightly crap way but I'll probably change them.

Legs: they are both regular humanoid joints but as before the drawing doesn't really show whats going on due to the complexity.

Cheers mate :)

Gnome: I really want to stay awau from centaurs, they seem overdone. humanoids are done ven more but centaurs are a bit out of fashion'ish in my eyes for this comp. you never know i may contradict myself by changing it :)

it seems a bit too humanoid for such an obviously oceanic animal, particularly the face and legs which are kind of innaproprate for such an alien body. What about if the torso rode on the legs of a crab, like a minotaur? with a plated chest that ran under the legs like a lobster? the face could draw on deep see creatures, transclucent teeth on a massive protruding lower jaw, multiple eyes that kind of thing. really go all out alien on it.

yes im kinda feeling it, the horns arnt working for me as agressive enough. Straight out like that. More curve. Also yes the feet, cloven hoof perhaps. Nice ideas , need to define em down a bit.

As for the weapon, an axe made of Ice perhaps
