.::Baterius Guard::. by NightmareGK13 .::Baterius Guard::. by NightmareGK13
one of the two brothers is finished
i don't really know if it's worth coloring the other one or not since they are twins and the armor looks exactly the same
what do you think?

the weapon isn't meant to be as detailed as the other ones since the other ones are main weapons for main characters and they all share something in common

these two dudes are actually pretty powerfull manhandling Ivor, Hubris and Ginevra leaving Éron to fight alone with the unbeatable Baterius.
Being this sort of a body guard they share the same basic design behind Baterius' armor, a crazy helmet like the ones i like with the angel element being repeated more often than in Baterius. The other dragon slayers weren't allowed and often didn't share the same vision as Baterius (one of the reasons the clan dispersed) and didnt like to use the same angel so they came up with the design on the skirt of the guard that is the insignia of the dragon slayers

his armor is black and originally it was meant to be black, but the color scheme pulled me towards a different direction

since i was inspired by mtg a while back and got in a the mood and my friend ~Disolution gave me like 60+ and i bought the ones i missed i decided to add this little quote from my book that i might add onto future deviations.

"If you couldn't see his approach during daylight, what made you think you could at night and inside a cave..." - Ivor, the Blacksmith

wow this fellow looks so intiminating. Love his head gear too. the fact that you can't see his face makes him very mysterious. the colours are fantastic.

estranho não teres posto critique requested oAo de qualquer maneira escrevo-a aqui.

Os vários estudos que tiveste realmente compensaram. A imagem está espectacular, muito harmoniosa entre si em termos de cores porém muito monocromática.

Os reflexos do capacete foram muito bem pensados. A conjugação dos anjos com a "armação" nas costas e a linha da armadura encontram-se muito no tema angélico, o que é interessante, porque podemos ver certos elementos não só como integrantes da armadura como com uma certa conotação i.g a armação = aureola.

Quanto à armadura, é diferente. É muito mais polida e lisa do que se estava à espera para este tipo de paleta. O panejamento embora que não tenhas muito à-vontade, foi um smart move teres deixado a capa em base, por assim dizer e só teres feito mais trabalho cá a frente.
Em relação ao fundo, não sou muito adepta de rachas no chão com lava e por ai mas admito que enquadra-se muito bem no cenário poeirento. Considero este um dos teus melhores fundos ever.
Esta dev facilmente a veria num artbook ou num livrete que vem com os jogos XD
Não paras de surpreender!

Beautifully painted. :D
Nice effects in the background.
Nice color scheme, but I question the whiteness of those angel elements on his armor in this warm lighting.
Another thing that is bothering me is his weirdly-shaped helmet as I'm trying to imagine how a man's head would fit in it. Wouldn't the head look too small if you took off his helmet? You should know better.
It's a nice illustration anyway. :)

i agree on that
the angel part, i wanted an element to brea off the monotony of the monochromatic color scheme, i might have over done it though
i knew someone was bound to ask that question :D
glad it was you since i like debating things with you :P
i made a quick sketch on the helmet and how would it fit
i don't think it's 100% accurate but you should check it here

Awesome!

If I may recommend, you said that his brother was a twin with identical armor. One of the things I love to see are seeminglyidentical characters with small changes. Just change a few small things.

Just a suggestion. XD

You're really improving very fast :)

And now I think of Pyramid Head.
And thinking of Pyramid Head, I start thinking of rape o'clock.
And thinking of rape o'clock, the white female figurines start having a different connotation :D

On a side note, It's amazing how much I dig that grill shadow on the plate, and how when I think about it it makes no sense but it's still awesome!

Great concept! I love it, did you start with grayscale on this one?

I'm just not too sure about the left shield on his arm, it looks like its coming out too much.

Probably just me, but I thought I'll share my thoughts. ;)
