    “SygwaldColored”

    Turns out drawing digital stuff from scratch to give him a background is a bit hard when you're not used to it. So I gave him something more subtle using black and aquamarine.

    Let me know if you have any thoughts regarding the color scheme :)

    Trying a coloring palette for an evil antagonist.

    Granted, the selected colors aren't the cliché evil ones which I think it's alright xD

    Cool! I like the deep colors. Also the way he reminds me of the old Mesopotamian kings, instead of the regular ones. Nice work!

    Now having fun making a baddies group shot:

    [​IMG]

    Yep, all of them for one character to kill.

    [​IMG]

    Gonna take me a while :D

    [​IMG]

    Coloring it will surely be an even tougher ordeal I'm betting :eek:

    Having some trouble deciding which one should be the main coloring set:

    [​IMG]

    I originally thought about making this guy wear a crimson armor, but when I first uploaded this...
    “Xemnoth”

    [​IMG]

    ... I gave him golden tones instead.

    *GOLDEN ARMOR*
    PROS:
    - Fancier and Shiny
    - Easier to color
    - Easier for him to be distinguished from other demons and his father.
    - Grants him the (joke) nicknames of 'Goldy' and 'GodlyBoy' by his adversaries.

    *CRIMSON ARMOR*
    PROS:
    - Warrior oriented
    - Enhances his savagery and hostility
    - Easier for him to be distinguished from the main character ZH who wears golden armor

    EDIT

    There is also the possibility of a golden-black armor set...

    [​IMG]

    But it would make him look very similar to his own father's armor

    Hell, it's very tentative too, isn't it? :D

    BLOOD FOR THE BLOO-
    *cough*, excuse me.

    The crimson armor really reminds me of khorne, and the golden one is a little monotone (or monochrome, whatever). Between the two, I'd definitely prefer the golden one. :)
    By the way, do you have any demons who wear black armor with golden edges?

    EDIT:
    Oh hell, you do actually have it :D
    The 'black' color you have there is rather dark gray, or maybe coal of some sort.

    As the ultimate solution, try combining all 3 patterns into one: Black + Red + Gold.

    Hey there, thanks xD

    Yes I've done that kind of color combination before, it's one of the coolest 'evil' color schemes one can pick from
    AbyssalLord

    [​IMG]


    Here's a mixed version of these colors I just tried for the current character:
    [​IMG]

    I've been thinking I could keep the golden version as his 'base form' and when his 'berserk form' is triggered his armor changes accordingly.

    Agree on that!

    The current version of his armor looks gorgeous!
    And in case he looks too similar to his father, you can always add more red xD

    That is also a solution :D

    Ya, I'm evaluating the colors I selected for that character as well.

    Another crazy solution would be mixing both versions (like a joker card)

    A little update. Currently coloring this concept:

    “SgtAllard”

    [​IMG]


    I thought using a mix of blue, gray, purple and golden/light brown at first...
    “WIP1”

    [​IMG]


    But then decided to change color schemes into black, yellow, orange and red (a combination I normally use for evil-aligned characters)...
    “WIP2”

    [​IMG]

    Making some progress and changing a few things...
    “WIP3”

    [​IMG]


    @deepstrasz Aye, the guy on the right is coming from behind the female and commenting her about something regarding the newcomer.

    Just a bit more---
    “WIP4”

    [​IMG]


    Hopefully Allard looks less creepy now xD

    So far so good I'd say.

    This is the same one in my album, the color palette has been completed for each character and background.
    “WIP5”

    [​IMG]

    I added a Torch as one of two light sources (the other one being the moon from above) which served as a reference for me to add and remove brightness accordingly. Still, it doesn't right considering all the colors at nighttime.
    “WIP6”

    [​IMG]

    I decreased the brightness at certain areas and added 2 color masks to simulate the effects of both the torchlight and moonlight. I like how it's turning out.
    “WIP7”

    [​IMG]

    Now on to adding a few more details like blood, raindrops, rainwater, mud, etc...

    And now coloring another character, pretty much expanding the family xD
    “Captain”

    [​IMG]

    “WIP1”

    [​IMG]


    Since this character is pretty much the leader of his own unit and has many decades of experience behind him, I gave him a golden / dark golden tone to most of his outfit.

    On to the next coloring project :)

    “This”

    [​IMG]


    Barely begun. I've outlined each character I'll be working on and made a few changes.
    “WIP1”

    [​IMG]
    I've shown some of these characters in previous artworks, mainly the three at the front who were present in the 'Meeting' scene.
    Foreground: Allard, Aelena, Zeth, Alanah, Eva.
    Midground: Cpt Sygberht, Adrian, Markus, Kaeleb, some Men-At-Arms and some Militia.


    I'm expecting this to have tons of color at the end.

    Took a little break after the WIP3 in order to draw new stuff :D

    “Kaeleb”

    This guy...
    Kaleb
    Is meant to be this one... (and is also present in the previous picture (top left))
    [​IMG]

    There are some references to certain games and movies here xD


    “Relaxation2”

    [​IMG]

    No, I'm not giving him a harem.


    ...A love triangle maybe.


    “Rescue”

    [​IMG]

    Several things are shown here, as they should be since this scene is based on a chapter from the story I wrote some time ago.

    Thanks a ton :D I'm currently coming up with another artworks group (no less than 3 pieces per bundle). This time depicting more demonic antagonists.

    “E-VL”

    [​IMG]


    The one on the bottom right is not complete yet. I'm adding the demon's son ( Captain Xemnoth Grimeye ) on the picture.
