.:Ogol:. by NightmareGK13 .:Ogol:. by NightmareGK13
Ah i missed doing a Dragon Slayer
this is a redesign of Ogol

since his original design was based on medievalish elements and gladiators, i went with the current flow and decided to make a redesign of him
although i am happy with the helmet, im not so sure about the rest.



i prefer some elements of the new one but there's something more eerie about the older one
not sure what though

if you guys can help me out ill be thankful ;)

his stance came out of nowhere, it's very hard making up a stance for a character like this and make it look original and not something out of soul calibur :XD:

the helmet was redesigned by me and a good friend of mine from college, we actually made up the designs while going home from college on the train :P

ah good times and yet more to come this year

that being said
ill re paste the info on Ogol
"Ogol, older brother to Ogor. Pretty much like his brother little his known about him, and like him he was born a member of the Dragon Slayer Clan. Where, under the tutelage of Baterious grew into a strong warrior. His rough appearance doesn't fully portray the power he has within, stories tell that this warrior took down a fully grown alpha male dragon from the mute plains with his bare hands. His weapon was built by himself when he was exiled for (like his brother) disrespecting Baterius, on the execution plains. The blade was built using the blade from one of the guillotines laying around, the handle, some stories say it was ripped off from a cursed treent and ointed with dragon fat to prevent it from combusting. The hay in the middle can be lit on fire and be replaced anytime. His brother however had a more severe punishment and both his eyes were mutilated by Baterius leaving him blind. Ogol uses his mask not only for protection but to bulk him up has he claims and to hide something no one knows about. Both brothers are now much loyal after that incident and are two of the few which remained under his service."

oh well cheers ;)

Really nice looking barbarian/gladiator combo, but maybe some chest protection to give him a heavy look along with his axe

nice idea, ill try it out next time i illustrate him
doesn't mean it will stick, but i like the idea so ill see what i can come up with

the original design was to show more of his own musculature instead of resorting to armor to do so
showing off more skin and more muscles means he's more fearsome than if wearing armor,
still ill look into the breastplate idea

I don't know, but i dare to say that is one of the best character remakes you have done.
The textures (axe, fur, metal) are very well accomplished. I think the only problem is the closest hand. It seems very big.
But like i said, one of my favourites redesigns :)

I think it looks great but the background could use some light or something. solid colors are kinda bland but then again I do that too from time to time

Por uma razão qualquer não consigo comentar o teu mais recente journal (nem no teu profile sequer >_>), portanto, se não importares, comento aqui =D
Aqui vai!

- 1st part - agreed.
- 2nd part - agreed.
- Cursing at companies who should realize internet is exactly THE reason why where you live doesn't matter at all, because 'hey! e-mails exist! and facebook! and skype! and etc!' - agreed.
- Cursing at too much boobs and art-my-ass deviations - agreed (I don't go to the main page at all).
- Cursing at the ENORMOUS and INCREASING LACK of QUALITY of Daily Deviations these days - completly agreed.

E tenho dito.

imagina, tens a cena pra comentar e quando carregas lá pra começar a escrever, fica maior, aparecem os emoticons ao lado e não sei quê, né? Comigo isso não acontece, só em comentários de deviations :XD:
Fascinating, I know!

It's strong overall - I SERIOUSLY recommend outlines to bring a more solid form to the overall design. Solid black outline, add it, I promise it will improve it overall.

im opened to that suggestion and i even tried it
thing is
it doesn't really work out

it may work with a different painting style, yours for instance, but on this im not really feeling like it works
one of the issues i find most pressing is the fact of the skin, where i made a crucial mistake

i dropped the outlines a while ago, but i used to use them quite oftenly, but as i searching for new things i felt the need not to implement them any more
