Title: Gamosh-Ra Demon Pic
Post by: Seeker on 24 October 2012, 12:31:29
Asleep in the Ronoth Forest I am beset with nightmares.  There is something unnatural about this place.  Visions of demons riding the storms, everything cold, consuming the very heat around it.  I wake with chills.  An Omen?  I pray not.

Wow! A hulking mass of muscles and charred skin, for sure. I like the patterns on the charred skin. I wonder if the thick blood seeping from gnashes in the skin might be made a more blood-red (they look a bit orangey). What are the dollops of red on the shoulders, coming out of the gray things?

The mouth is truly terrifying! Can the eyes be a bit larger? Perhaps they can remain pupil-less, but the poor guy looks a bit blind with his eyes no bigger than slits.

I really like the lightning in the background! And I like the textures on the demon's form. Nice work!  :thumbup:

Indeed, a very cool picture and aura +1, Seeker! I like to have a monster when I need one - be it in a Places entry of some mysterious location or a Santhworld foe to put an end to the players aspirations... *hehehe*

I'd also agree with Rayne about the eyes - this is a point you can definitely do some more according to the description:

With eyes a bright white/yellow light lightning they indeed are a very fearful sight.

Even a Photoshop effect might be an option here, like rendering filter --> lighting effects to make the eyes really shine out of their slits. But the rest is pretty cool and makes one keep a bit of a distance...

 :D  Looks like my third mother in law.  Not sure if I agree with Rayne on the colour coming from under the skin.  Could be monitor settings.  Looks deep enough red to me.

I'm a tad colour-blind, so the difference for me is that it's either dark or light grey... ;)

Unfortunately some things came up and I have no been able to get to this.  Feel free to leave it out or post it with the expectation to update the picture.
