No problem team! Happy to oblige.

Here’s the final in full high res. Let me know if I addressed the eye color issue from before. I too noticed just how dark they were getting. Just one of the challenges of a squinty-eyed, black iris man who’s face is in shadow. Haha.

Thanks so much! Let me know if/when you’re ready to move onto the next king. I was thinking Apsu would be a nice shift in design elements. I can invoice the final hours for Zhoth along with the preliminary estimate for the next king as soon as you’re ready, and will send off the Zhoth.psd once we’re all settled up.

As always, let me know if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

(Long post incoming)You nailed it. This is a fantastic final representation for Khadrius! Seriously though, you really nailed what I was looking for. His resemblance couldn’t have been done better. You found what I was looking for!

I really love the worn look of all the leather garments. So cool! Like you said this allowed us to keep different tones that assist with accomplishing the separation of different pieces.

You fixed the eye! Maybe it was just for my own peace of mind, but now it looks much better. With it being completely black as before I could convince myself that it was just an empty socket. With such a dark character being in shadow though, I could understand how that would be challenging, but I really appreciate that you made the eye stand out more.

The vein condition on his face is intense! So good! I just now looked at the full res up close for the first time. WTF!? Wow dude that’s freaking insane! Hahahaha.

Another thing I just noticed was the expression in his face, while menacing, it also shows the slightest glint of hope, maybe its the way his eyebrows are positioned in addition to this new left eye, I don’t know. Whatever it is, this could not be more fitting for this character. LOL AHHHH YOU HAVE NO IDEA! <spoilers removed>

I cheered when I saw the varicose veins on the fingers of his left hand! YES! So cool. Thanks for doing that lol!

All the little details are too numerous to comment on! All the leather work is great, the pouch, the stitching, the layers, the camera shine. All great. I especially appreciate that you made DIRE BEADS in the necklace. Whhhaaaaaaaattt? Very cool!

Great work Dylan!

*insert segue*

It would be awesome to work on Apsu. But this time I will have to ask that we do Eloden first. The reason for this is that once we have Eloden, we will have ALL FOUR of the main standard-game kings. Apsu is pivotal to the story, as you know; but I’d like for us to get all the standard kings out of the way first so that when we focus on Apsu he is the final king that we have to work on. Another reason we should do Apsu last is because we will <spoiler removed>, followed by the Revenants. Apsu will only be in the limited edition, so if we have Eloden first we will be able to start showing off the game (standard edition).

Send the invoice as soon as you are able. If you are cool with doing Eloden next I will get the contract drawn up. Talk soon!

(Oh, I got my computer back finally! All taken care of.)

Hey team!Thanks for the kind words. And no worries on implementing all the little details. At the end of the day a lot of that stuff isn’t going to be seen by the general viewer. But knowing that it’s there and that it’s part of your story is what makes it all worth it in the end 🙂

No worries on going the Eloden route. I understand. It all has to get done at some point so I’m not picky about where we go next. There’s a few ideas I wanted to kick around with Eloden anyway, so it’ll be a good opportunity to bring those to the fore in the tonal stage.

Talk soon, Cheers!
