TAP Challenge #84: The Desert Oracle

Unread postby sampetersonart » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:37 pm

Description:
The challenge for the next 2 weeks is a character design for "The Desert Oracle". This is a guide and leader of a desert dwelling people. The Oracle is looked to for guidance, wisdom and leadership. They are believed to have a certain level of clairvoyant ability and are an important figure in their society. Your challenge is to design this character, keeping in mind their desert environment, their status in society and what the people in that society may be like.

Rules and Guidelines:
-This is a character 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, January 15th.

Progress. The desert priest is a halfgod, his father an indian god, his mother an egyptian princess.
His headdress has egyptian influences. The jewel set in the headdress at the location where his third eye is.
It also indicates status referring to his position as king priest.
Next neck collar, body, robes, etc,etc.

Rough paintover to generate some ideas on attributes. Obviously not posed yet. Truth is doing all this in 3d might be a bit timeconsuming so i might do some photobashing on the jewelry to save time since the end goal is 2d concept art rather than a 3d character. But we'll see.

Some head sketches from my sketchbook.
I'm going for more of a tribal/native look.

Heyo! Not sure if I'll finish by monday. This time I started with a digital sketch and then went pencils, which was interesting.
Edit: updated with color progress-- got most of the important stuff done, but I'm going to have to finish it later-
Edit: updated to final version-- still needs some touchup lines

Sam tweeted that he wouldn't be able to stream today, so you probably have another day if you need it! Nice progress!

Awesome. Thanks for letting me know. One more day gives me enough time to give the final piece a more illustrative quality.

Last update for today. Might make another version tomorrow but I'm satisfied enough with this one in case I don't make the deadline with the other version.
