Weekly progress. Still a few areas that need addressing before getting into the final render: Skin tone for one, the Ylem staff details, and the circular pattern on the leg. I want to put some real intricate effort into it’s design so I’ll handle that bit separately and apply it to the fabric once the material rendering is complete.

Of course if I’ve missed anything else just let me know.

Will be sure to have the high king Apsu wrapped up by Friday 🙂

This is so cool! I like the adjustments; very nice. I like what you did for the staff and the “pimp cane” (its some kind of tuning device I’ll try to find what its actually called). The galaxy energy swirling around him is cool, I like how you’ve included those bands of blue energy. Looks good.

Really liking the eyes.

Only a few things to mention that I can see.

  • Are you going to have his ear showing out of his hair at all? Like perhaps just in part?
  • Before I noticed you had some leather straps holding the pimp cane to his side. What do you plan for the cane being attached to him?
  • I like how the cane looks, I like how the staff and the cane have similarities. We don’t need to change that. I’d like for us to still add some strange symmetrical ornamentation to the bottom end of it though; something like this image, see at the bottom end of the cane?

  • Perhaps also on the top of the cane (although his hand will still be covering it) we give it the suggestion of a handle there as well.

Is this background something you made or is it a placeholder?

Awesome work man!

Yessir! The ear (or at least a part of it) will be included in the final.

I’m doing those straps on a separate layer and re-designing them so they’re more functional than the previous version. But rest assured, they’ll be there.

We can do that. I’ll be sure to include a flourish of some kind for the bottom, and hint at a handle up top.

The background and floor are both just placeholders like the previous kings. Though I like the color on both, so it might be something to keep in mind when we get into doing his environment.



Stay tuned for EPISODE # 064 – Eloden Orthographic Final which will be posted soon!

Thank you for stopping by!
