Olidammara and Hextor

Forgot to post Olidammara when I finished him, so here's both at once! Olidammara is the trickster god of rogues and bards. It's been a while since I actually did that one, so I don't have a whole lot to say. I really love some things about him, but am pretty ambivalent about others. Not my favorite, but not bad, either.

Hextor, on the other hand.... He's the god of tyranny, chaos, and evil things like that. This was somewhere in the realm of 12-15 hours in photoshop after the drawing was done. Pretty much a straight shot, too. I started yesterday afternoon and finished at 7am today. Hextor is specified as having 6 arms, and is traditionally made to look like some sort of goblin or big blue orc-thing. I wanted to go more of an oni-inspired direction, because I think it's visually more interesting and it'll give him and his brother Heironious a much more east-vs-west contrast in the end. Not all of his armor is Japanese inspired, for the sake of aesthetic chaos, but the over all shape is based off of a ronin type of costume. The arrows are because his symbol/insignia is a fist holding six really evil-looking arrows.

I love these! I'm thinking you should make these into trading cards. The lighting on the clothing is super great. What medium did you use?

These are all 100% photoshop over pencil line drawings :) I definitely want to experiment with different sizes and types of prints, I was actually thinking that they're just about the perfect size and shape to print mini-cards--those little half-sized business cards :D
