+DS Concept+:: Fast Avenger by Droemar +DS Concept+:: Fast Avenger by Droemar
"Uh, Vin ... Can I ask you a question?"
"Y-Yes?"
"How were you ever bullied before we met you?"

This is strictly concept art for Daemon Soul, and quite a successful experiment. First off, I used pencil line instead of ink, a most difficult, teeth-gritting ordeal for me, who praises Streamline in the highest name. Pencil has a nice transperancy to it, though. Seconds, I changed my brush to a "curry brush" [link] , so it behaves more like a natural paintbrush with perpetually perfect flow. I usually color with master opacity and flow set to about %30, which makes for a very blended, smudgy look. Good for subtle shadows, not fur. So the curry brush let me do fur a lot better. And it challenged me to use my tablet with more precise motion. Minimal use of the smudge tool, too. I think I learned some new stuff about lineart and coloring here, and the experiments shall continue.

Um, as for the character, I was really trying to get color scheme down. I don't think this is what I'll be going with color wise, but the markings on the quills, horns, etc. turned out nice. Vindex in his normal wolf form just has a crappy pose that I wasn't able to save with painting. That's why it's concept. Vindex as a character is a very meek and shy fellow, mistreated on the streets he grew up on. And his warform is not a "you wouldn't like me when I'm angry" thing; Vindex changes his appearance, not his mindset. He doesn't like to look mean and scary.

lovely texturing...you really see every bit of fur...your practice is really showing!

nice composition...

it feels a bit flat though...i feel there could be more varied tones, unless of course that's the effect that you were going for...
