.: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 :)
