.::Raziel::. by NightmareGK13 .::Raziel::. by NightmareGK13
remake of the Evil king of Amaldan
here's the link to the previous version

there's a big portion of his story on the link provided so that won't take much space of the little box here

for some reason i believe im lacking something, i am however pleased how this character turned out, i finally broke the chains t the dark crystal plate he was wearing and developed something of my own
i need to work more on the backgrounds im giving my characters because i think it's such a nice adition as well as the character itself as a background as =saejinoh suggested on the august edition of imageFX

let's hope you guys are as happy with how this turned out as i am

also i do request critiques so if you feel comfortable to criticize, do so because it's a major help in improving my art :P

~cheers

p.s. also happy birthday dA ;)

[EDIT] added the cape belts :P

ahah thank you for that :XD:

don't really know when it will be done since i have a lot of projects in hand, but when i do ill try and make it far better than this one :D

and it's hard since i consider this to be still one of the best paintings I've done

you're very welcome =3

I also think, that its going to be hard to top it, cause its a really great picture and I don't know what you can make better
but I think, that even a little improvement is a success

it's pretty cool, but like you said too, try to keep away from that style and content too, because a lot of elements are from la2 armors :D
i played a lot la2 like 2-3 years and i never thought drawing something from it lol )
but anyways cool drawing :)

what kind of elements?
(just realized this wasn't jamahadr)
which makes it different
some if not a great portion of the armor was designed by me
i may have used some elements but they we're modified nevertheless

Wow - Amazing colors! I really love the way you set up the background.. I mentioned you do wonderful close up portraits.. so it is awesome to be able to see pieces of both distance & close-up working in harmony.

the gold embellishments against the black armor always makes a cool impact. I like the white parts in his hair that give him a more unique and classy look. Well done buddy. :XD:

I like him :) Is he a vampire or a demon? He reminds me of my Vampire OC Raziel. The colors are very good.

NightmareGK13 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009  Student Digital Artist
no nothing like that he's just a human
Raziel you say
no pics of him in your gallery
coincidence the main villain in my book is also called Raziel

Sladin5Ever Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
yeah I moved accounts and never actually had a picture of him (never had the motivation to XD) And another coincidence, the main villain in my novel is named Raziel (he's a normal human but can use the elements). I'll have to post that story in my gallery soon. It would be very scary if they were somewhat similar just not by name o.O unintentional of course

well you go first tell me whats he's like mentally

He's kinda on the crazy side. He uses catch phrases when using his powers (Flame Thrower, Rockslide, etc). He is the leader of a group called the Devil's Advocates (kids/adults that use their powers for evil purposes). He killed his father to obtain all of his powers, but since his twin brother Jaren is alive, some of their father's powers transferred to him. Raziel was not happy so he has tried killing Jaren to obtain the powers that he believes he should only have. Um...the book is all about people with powers and the main character, Rocky (that's my nickname; the story takes place in my hometown with my friends in the book) was targeted by Raziel so that he could have Rocky on his side (Rocky is a special case in which I call an In Between (group of people; Good, Evil, Normal, In Betweens); could be Good or Evil)

I think that's about it. Of course he looks nothing like your character so that's good XD

-Your painting technique is very nice in the upper half of the image, which is so incredibly detailed. The lower part looks like it's less finished (this includes the ground and Raziel's left leg).
-I would add brighter highlights on his right hand since it's closest to the viewer and ought to stand out the most (especially when it is the most important aspect of the pose).
-Wondering if those two swords would look better in the foreground instead of a background, if that changes anything.
-Some highlight on his hair would be a nice addition.
-I can't figure out in what direction Raziel is looking. He seems to look at the viewer considering his right arm position, but the enlarged version of him is looking somewhere to the side... :confused:

Great improvement again, especially on Raziel's face and his facial expression, which is far more convincing on this version. Black armor suits him better and contrasts with the golden elements. Keep up your impressive work! :D

- i completely agree i think i blew it completely on the legs :\ also they had problems since day 1 as for the ground i was really tired i might add some extra detail to the ground but im not that keen on going back to him although this piece certainly deserves it
- i think addind brighter highlights wouldnt look that good and it would look as if the hand was not a part of the body and the piece of armor but i can always take a look into it when i revisit the floor
- dont think so :XD: how would i place them on the foreground? in front of the character would definitely ruin it
- he already has, i didnt add more to emphasize the highlights on his hair
- he's looking slightly to his right (our left) more towards his hand than the viewer exactly.

thank you :aww:
very pleased you liked it :D
and definitely will :D

first off...you can clearly see how much youve improved between the two versions...so congrats on that...XD...
secondly the bg thing is workin for you...i like how you make it work still includin the white blank areas...
like i said before tho..as a personal pref. im not a fan of bgs that are just a bigger/lower opacity version of the same face on the character....
sayin that it still roxxer enuff for me to fav it...XD...
really diggin your colour choices and the metal effects look spot-on...
nice skin colour as well...
cool sword design...
also lovin the pose...the ' hand-of-death ' thing works really well...XD...
sw33t work d00d3...keep it up...XD...

This looks extremely better than the old version - design, detail, and execution. I love the stance and the sense of power emanating from it. Overall, great work! :D
