TAP Challenge #77: The Minions

Unread postby sampetersonart » Mon Sep 11, 2017 1:51 pm

Description:
Behind every great super genius is an army of loyal minions. These minions are mindlessly and endlessly devoted to their dear master. They live to serve and only want to make their master happy. They do various duties to help ensure their master is successful with every evil plot. Your job is to design these minions, and imagine what they may look like. Imagine what they do to help the evil genius they serve, their personalities, and use that to inform your design. They are some sort of creature, but if you want to make them quite human-like that is okay to. The challenge is open to you to interpret as you'd like.

Rules and Guidelines:
-This creature design challenge.
-Approach this concept as if you were designing it for a video game or film.
-Any medium is allowed.
-WIPs can be posted in this thread and the final submissions can be posted in the "Finals" thread.
-Due before Sam's on stream review on Monday, September 25th.

I've been trying to make more thumbnails before deciding on a design but I keep getting excited about one of the first 2 or 3 lol. I drew a few smaller minion thumbnails but decided to go with more of a warrior type minion.

Quick thumbnails before bed, thinking choosing between either dark fantasy (souls-like) or cutesy wutesy. I'll let it simmer until tomorrow and decide then.

For this minion i had the idea of a super villain (like in James Bond) , this character would be one of his many servants / minions being sent to do his bidding.
