Dominance War - Warlord by nJoo Dominance War - Warlord by nJoo
Hope you guys don't mind me uploading sketches, just thought instead of doing a tutorial, it'd be more fun showing step by step my design phase at the same time have input from everyone (thanks a tonne btw)

I've decided to go with #3 from last batch and also mix a bit from #6 (Thanks a tonne to all those that voted, I'm surprise the #1 and #3 basically tie)


The concept so far is some god of insect, thus the beetle like shell perhaps, it also serves as the nest of the critters. the inner arm have sharp claw which slices the enemy while attack from the main arms will infect and swarm the wound with insect, penetrating the enemy's intestines,etc.

Now that I've kinda decided to go with the warlord , anyone have any suggestion for a name that might go well with the theme?

Also, I need to still design an ancient weapon to go with the concept. Ideas?

Here's my Official CGtalk Dominance War Thread -> nJoo's CGTalk Dominance War Thread

I Think Roland would be great name!! :)

No one want to be friends with a guy whose name they cant prononce. :) i actually think, thats as a previous person said, giving him a name that cant be callled is a great idea, so that he can be called according to the terror he evokes in ledgend; Plauge or Pestilance or Blight.
the gem in my opinion could serve as a variety of purposes. Since we're talking warlord here you might want him to be able to revive the bees as long as the gem is intact.(?) My idea for a name would be Solemnitas or fester in latin; i got fester from the bees in his hive. Think about it. Please , I feel you should be the one to win this.
If I may it's just a little bit too empty a the waist even though there's a "ancient gem" you can't realy see what it is.

Oh well maybe with some coloring it would be ressemble more to some warlord. ^^

I somehow see it letting out swarms of beasts out his shoulders and having it's arms mutating continuously to adapt to the enemys...

Nice concept, maybe you could form something like a blade with the insects.
