.:Baterius:. by NightmareGK13 .:Baterius:. by NightmareGK13
the backdrop is still a work in progress
the character should be finished by now

i never really had any decent depiction of this particular character, despite the popularity level that i think he has, mistery?, helmet? don't know what it is but many of my colleagues and friends find this the most intriguing and the character with the most detailing storyline

i'm not happy with it and im not too let down, this is the result of a very stressfull week but i still had to do something, i needed to finish it, i needed to feel realized, and now i'm free for tomorrow so i can take the most important exam of my life, and this really is true not just me over reacting :XD:

i stll don't think this is his best depiction ever and i will most likely head on to new ground and try and really portray this guy
maybe an action scene? been dying to do one of those

the former versions can be found on the following links

early 2008 - [link]
early 2009 - [link]
late 2009 [link]

~cheers

comments and critiques are always welcome, on anything at all, keeping in mind i'm trying to come up with a better solution for the background, so any ideas for this i'll be glad to hear about them :D

maybe its the light but his leg-armor(for lack of a better word) and boots look boring in comparison to his upper body. as for background ....he looks like he could be standing on a cliff over looking a battle field?

very elegant, nice work

I have come to recognize the signiture helmet that you give this guy. which I like very much. Love the faces on the shoulder pads too. A person would definatly look twice while passing this fellow on the steet. Also Liked he colours used. gold and silver work very well together. Plus the hints of red in the cloth. nice work buddy :clap:

Outstanding painting quality and character design. :clap:
I personally prefer a black backcground to a white one, especially for this type of character.
The pose might not be the most successful thing as it's hard to tell whether the figure is standing or jumping. If it's your way of showing exaggerated perspective, the difference of the foreground and background should be more dramatic as well as the lighting. This type of pose would probably be easier perceived if the viewpoint was somewhere above or below the character (but then you would have to deal with foreshortening issues). I also encourage you to create an action scene, you've already tried something new with the background in the previous version of Baterius, which was rather successful.
Other than that, I admire your creativity and efforts on improving each character design. Keep experimenting and good luck. :)

how can the knight see with that little statue in his visor/face ? lol

Otherwise its reallly cool painting
I think the armor needs abit more shading as the left arm with those spiky heads,doesnt look quite right.
And the hand holding that kick-ass axe(?) needs abit more detailing ;)
I guess the cloak needs something as well...

I dont know much about digital art yet,so i cant say much else
