"Imagination is more important than knowledge..."
I'm down. This is my first chow.
Lot's of ideas for this one, but sticking with something a little more simple

Thanks complete2! I really like your idea as well. for some reason... the atmosphere of your pictuer made me immediately think of the 360 game Condemned.
here's a new WIP...
dierat as much as i liked the resisting/agony shot... my mind kept creeping back to the post agony image... where he is or might as well be already dead... and now he just "lounges" upon his throne like any jaded/pensive king should do. so i like the way this is going. hopefully i can find time to really work on it before sunday.
zeitgest:the concept of pyramid head man comes from great japan game Silent Hill 2 developed by Konami. Pyramid head character also appeared at Silent Hill movie.
Look here : Red Pyramid

yeah, gotta admit that was the first thing i thought of as well when i saw your pic zeitgiest; really nice concept though- a bit of shape tweaking on the helmet should stop anyone thinking of silent hill!
Manuel Calavera/newman: Ya, I'm aware of the pyramidhead monster from SH2. actually in unbelievable coincidence i doodled a creature purposely inspired by pyramidhead in my sketchbook a few days ago. This time... i was just having problems getting the helmet to look like i wanted to... and therefore began chipping it down to a more simple form... My intention was to have it resemble the hoods from the klu klux klan and also resemble a type of "palace" for the flies to live in... but now with fresh eyes... i can totally agree with you two that it's way too close to Pyramidhead. Ill work on it today after work. Thanks for being straight up, guys.
heres my wip.
MetalMike,i really like your character pose and form.goodjob so far.

kreator, really neat design... and really detailed "wip". I'm assuming the flies come out of the little holes in the stomach?
Here's my design, i hope u likes.
The Fly breeder
Prince Dur'kesh was abandonded from his land by his older brother.
He seeked for revenge and found out about a spell from the ancient times: flies nearby devour upon his flesh. However he also gets to control them.
Now Dur'kesh, also known as "The Fly breeder", uses his power to throw apart kingdoms and kill the unfortunate kings and all their heirs.
Well! When you look at a horse breeder or a dog breeder just walkin' down the street, you don't point at him and say "That guy is totally a dog breeder!" Well, hopefully you don't; if a dog breeder really looks his profession that might be kinda weird. Ahem, anyways... Do our fly breeders need to be spewing out flies from orifices or sittin' in a lab makin' flies do their thing for our concepts to work?
If you guys really have a problem with Poo's concept, you're probably going to just hate mine ;D
"In the year 2550, the heart of what became known as the Synthetic Age, the last of Earth's native species were officially pronounced extinct. In a civilization manufactured from items of quality that at best imitated in a sterile perfection the materials lost to history, the Ling family's fortune tripled in a matter of months from it's black market "originals". The Ling estate had invested much into the bio-engineering of new species, synthesized in their own fashion from the copious remains of insects, which were, of course, the last non-human species when all others had fallen. These unnaturally large insects, bred in secret, produced excellent skins and wings. Sold for incredible sums of money, and gaining the Ling estate much in the way of fortune and prestige, these were marketed as the last of earth's natural materials."
Sha Ling, head of the Ling estate
Crit on porportions welcome; I suck without a ref D:
Hey Complete2, I really liked the Serial killer idea. Granted this post is a little down the line but oh well. Anyway, I thought that perhapes instead of the flies being the purpose of his killings they could be the consequence. His victims attract an unusual amount of flies for whatever reason and the authorities dubbed the killer "The Fly Breeder".
Going to try to get one finished for this week, think I might have enough time to pull it off.
Concept: "She is an Urban demon this one. She has no name, at least no name that human lips can buzz out. She seems to be a form of both retribution and corruption demon. She preys exclusively on the morally bankrupt and corrupt, consuming them completely. But she seems to rebirth their twisted souls as enormous fly pupae after "digestion." I fear to think what would emerge if these pupae are allowed to mature and hatch."
-from the journal of Sister Dolores Pyre

I don't know if my character is going to fly(no pun intended), but here is my final:
He was a science experiment gone wrong. A military scientific team was trying to create a human that could breed virus-carrying flies within it's body. The purpose of this experiment was to have the mutated human sent into hostile territory, and spread the deadly virus to the enemies. The mutant breeds the flies in orifices in it's back, and it has a pair of non-functioning wings. Throughout it's body, openings in the skin reveal acute sensing hairs that help the mutant detect danger.
Unfortunately, the mutant was too unpredictable to use, and it was ordered to be destroyed. Mysteriously, the mutant escaped, and there have been reports of it being sighted in the underground sewage pipes of New York City. No virus outbreaks have been reported as of yet...
This is a wip...(also just a doodle that I may not do anything with)
This is Ross...Ross comes from Palm Springs and is 12 years old...he likes grape soda the most and hates to walk to school. He always flinches his face. He's pretty smart in school but hes not really liked but hes not really disliked either....hes one of those "filler" kids thats just "there"...Nobody really notices him... Anyway he and his mom live in a two bedroom apartment on San Pablo street. They dont have airconditioning and it smells like cigarete smoke. She works at the grocery store. Lately Ross has been taking a biology class in school and is learning about the life cycle, Animals and thier evolution. He likes to bring home jars of insects ...mainly flies and breed them. He just likes to watch them live and mate with eachother every now and then....every now and then he will give them a piece of bread or something to keep them alive...One time he killed one...This keeps him busy when his mom is at work and he cant leave on the weekends. He likes to imagine that one day he will create some giant fly as a result of his "experiments"....or maybe a fly that can talk...something better than where he is... :/
Hey, my first chow
just a WIP, but im having a bit of trouble with my monitors calibration. Im working on a laptop, but when i switch the pic over my other monitor, the colours look a lot more vivid and over bright anyways:
I'll give it a shot, why not y'know? of course I won't even make the polls with this piece of insanity but at least it was fun.

I'm bad at sketchbooks, have a tumblr!
they allow her the flies... they are the only things left that can make her smile.
Hey all, WIP, hopefully almost done.
Nice work by all, Kreator lookin good.
Heres the story
He was the best waiter of all the waiters but due to small mistake he lost his job, and now as a revenge, he breeds fly to distract there business
poojipoo i agree in what your saying, it doesnt have to all graphic and over the top, it can also be suttle. and im not trying to criticise your art in any way. im just saying, a character is as it says, its basicly a characterisation on something or someone, your being asked to point out the obvious, A fly breeder and i just think at the moment, your image only says fly rider. if you want to keep it suttle then maybe give her a bag of fly eggs or something similer just to state fly breeder
Newman: that's great! you really pulled out the emotion from the onlookers via their reflection. and for some reason... the fact the she's in total 80's attire makes it all the better.
