i sketched 2 characters to give me some directions of where i want to go...i´m into this tribal theme now so i guess my character will have a bit of this tribal hunter attitude...uhm...any comment suggestions is welcome!
I´m not sure they even fit in the fantasy theme actually...a bit too futurstic maybe?
Nice characters guys!
ChaoticKnight - Looking good so far. Can't wait to see more.
DefiledVisions - Awesome character, really reminds me of the Warhammer Lizard Men.
Jason Rainville - Nice concept, I like the design of the mask and the sword, it's very roman gladiatorish.
Gorgoleon - Nice cat man. Maybe a bit more armour would make him a bit more intressting, imo.
pepps - Cool concept, but as you said, they do look a bit too futuristic. Maybe if you give them less gadgets and so. Just a suggestion.
kingkostas - Really great dwarf, I digg his shield especially much.
This is my leviathan - an elemental of the forrest. I'm not so sure if it will be this big or not (guy in his hand), maybe I'll make it a bit smaller. I think the concept is done, now I just have to put it in a pose and fighting some dudes.
Thnx LORD M .
So now we have to make a scene(presenting characters working toghether to beat the elemental leviathan beast?)
Wow man its really enjoying way to practice to imagine and have fun
Nice characters all!!!Lets kill the beast
Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, and also to this crusade thing. I was interested in the idea so i decided to join up.
I have a question about this contest though.
I want to know whether there are any time constraints to this theme, basically can one draw modern character designs and settings?
(Edit) never mind, i checked out some of the rules in the other topics. I'll have to sign up before anything.

DVD-1-one: The signing-up part is pretty informal, usually posting a Work In Progress and/or final piece in here grants you a place in the lists. Just make clear which side (light or dark) you're on This activity is in a fantasy setting, so modern characters and technology are not really allowed I'm afraid.
Ok i will post a WIP now of my ideas.Also i think i will draw some other characters(of you guys) to place them in the battlefield cause we are all against one beast this time
I will think about it and see if i can do it.
I think i will choose the one with the close-up of the creature cause it makes it seem more epic.
wow all these look killer cant wait to see the finished projects, my first time doing anything like this.
Here is my design. According to magic the gathering a cyclops lifespan is 10,000. so I think he could fit into the medievalish times. I have a lot of work to do on my leviathan, went for a rock one. Its tough to make a rock snake like creature thanks to pokemon, so I made him kind of bullish/lizardy. maybe it will be like 4 times bigger. I'm attempting to set up a scene now.
Great work guys! And congrats, yoitsi.
Elemental update. Gonna have the characters climbing on its sholders, much like in Shadow of the Colossus.
long time no see, art crusade!
i am BACK! and i shall have at thee with ... with...
oh blast. im just bored, okay!?
so lets see what i sketch up to this thing, eh?
I still believe
Its Admar Using his magic Axe to kill the beast
Ok i think i am done with this .I have several versions but i think i will stay in the last one(but i will still present all the others in all in one version).Nice works all of you.Lets see who does the most damage now lol
First i will present the all in one
Secondly a small version and then a larger(adjusted to be able to see easily) if you want a bigger version tell me and i already have it
Nice one, kingkostas. I like the design of your beast and how the axe of Admar sparks with lightning, reminds me a lot of Thor's hammer Mjölnir.
Thnx Lord .I think i still need to fix leviathans tale that needs to disappear due to atmospheric perspective(forscience)make me see it as i was focused on colors.
kingkostas, I think that moving Admar away from the center would help making the scene more dynamic. Having elements slightly off center increases the tension, cause when there's some element in the center our eyes tend to be drawn to it and just rest there. Its obviously not a rule, there's a lot of great paintings with the main element in the center, but I think that in this case, it would improve the relationship between Admar and the leviathan with the tension created by having both of them slightly off center
Some WIP shots of my entry

KingKostas: I'm liking where your piece is heading, but if you don't mind me suggesting, add some detail to the lightining cracking off of his axe. Maybe some little whisps and crackles. Also, the background (where the stars are) looks a tiny bit plain.
To really push this one the furthest, I'd suggest to off center the main character and maybe give him a sort of 3/4's angle. That way it really adds a bit of tension between the viewer, the subject and the final enemy of the main guy. Remember that typically the eye follows a circular pattern around your whole piece coming in from a corner and ending near the opposite corner.
Anyway, keep pushing it I say, the deadline is no time soon.
I dunno, just a suggestion I suppose.
c@s I'm liking how this one is shaping up... I can't wait to see all the lighting take effect off the beast. Really push the values there and this piece will be amazing. Light will definitely be your main draw! Keep going with it and you'll have an amazing piece there.
Lord M: I like the sketch alot more so far than the colored piece.
I don't know if I'm looking at it right at the moment, but the way the hand is turned almost looks like the character's other arm is coming out of his chest. Even though I know from previous sketch that he is just looking over his shoulder.
Either way though, it'll be interesting to see what happens on this one.
I'll be getting started on mine very shortly... I'm still in the process of trying to figure out what kind of character I'd like to do.

Thnx for the critiques guys they are precious .I will try to do them if i find the right mood, cause i have some other things to finish now
I like your work c@s and i think it will be great.A scene of a massive battle, nice!!!
see ya all
Cool guys! this is going to be so awesome!
I had a dream this morning lol - half asleep.. like just when you wake up and is like "daaaamn 10 more minutes" .. I saw my Leaviathan haha.
The theme is an elemental Leviathan, but are we restricted to one elemental only? In my dream it was a mixture of fire, water and air..
my start in ps
have some pencilsketches, will scan them when i have the time
Wip image so far. Was thinking of cramming in as many other crusade characters i could but im not so sure if i'l procced with this.
See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
On his shell he holds the earth.
His thought is slow but always kind;
He holds us all within his mind.
Alright, its a bit different from the character I had in mind, but here's my guy. I'm also not liking the approach of my composition wip, I'm feeling too dainty about it. Might try to be violent with it.
I'm in this too! Just sketched out what I want to do, I'll draw my character on Saturday
