A wild new post appears!

And a wild new post appears where I show some stuff from a bit before the 30daysRPGchallenge, and a few extras from that.

A book cover for Blitz by Alexej Pehov. It's either a re-release or it's for a specific country, because you can find an alternate cover for it online.
A process of my zombie, and a line version of the final one from the RPG challenge.

Testing a brush for lines. Luvd it!
Luv also playing as Makoto in Street Fighter 4. For some reason, I find her to be a decent pick for beginners. You can do damage without relying on huge combos.
Sketch based my friend Robert's character, Splinter. He has a wig here.

Grandmaster study, after Brad Rigney's orc.

30 day RPG challenge - Week 4

The final chapter is here. In this one I focused more on the villains, then brought it back to the heroes for a final look at their aspect and skills. The gist of the story is that the group arrives near the assaulted city, with the flying fortress looming overhead. They find a lot of undead on the ground, and it seems a lot of the city's population is converted too. Someone knows of a secret bandit hideout and they suspect they will find some survivors there that could also lend a fighting hand, but as they arrive there, they are ambushed by more undead. After surviving that, they find the source of the undead plague and deal with it.
Following this, with the help of their transporting jelly they head upwards to embark the flying fortress, while fending off dragons and other flying terrors, and land to meet the master of that place and defeat him.

With this I conclude the #30daysRPGchallenge and I must say it was an interesting journey and I've learned alot, discovered some things that work for me technique-wise, and also made some friends.

Thanks to the people who started this initiative, Henry Tan and Fredrick Willy, the man that particulary inspired me to start it, Rudy Siswanto, and the many others who have done it alongside and contributed to the inspiration: Lius Lasahido Leo Ren Agus Yunanto Hendry Iwanaga Josh Corpuz Billy Christian and many others, as well as a reminder to my Romanian pals to keep at it Liviu Boar Andy Thomas Butnaru. And many thanks to the many people who have added me and showed their appreciation for this, it kept me going! : D

Let's get into it then: 

22 - Mythical Creature - Not so mythical after they descend from the floating fortress and terrorize the cities.
 23 - Stronger Normal Enemy - Looks like our faithful Royal Guard got corrupted somehow! Someone must be turning undead in the area!
 24 - Bandit lair - Old thieves hideout. The heroes are hoping to find people hiding there and maybe recruit them for the cause, but all they find is more undead.
25 - Stronger Boss - Tuonela, Necromancer Consort. Dispatched on the ground to divide and conquer.
26 - Skill/Spell cast - Multiple Arrows. The heroes go airborne to embark the flying fortress, as dragons and other creatures are circling around and attacking.

27 - Ultimate Weapon - A magical cannon, foreign in aspect, appearing to have ties to ancient godly beings. Very high damage, but it takes a few seconds to shoot, in which the user must not be interrupted by attacks. It also takes a long time until it can be fired again, and it requires a very rare type of ammunition. At the moment of shooting, all sound is muted, and time is briefly slowed until impact after which devastation roars!

28 - Ultimate Armor - Another relic of a past conflict where gods descended to wage war against the world.

29 - Godmode - The main character in his final form, ready for the final battle. The weapon as depicted in image #1 is a lightsaber kind of thing where it has a shorter core that goes in that sheath, but when it's released using those gloves, it's engulfed in white flame and even able to take different shapes. This is an upgraded version to the initial one.

30 - Last Boss. Since I made the concept for this villain in #2, I went out and made an illustration of the final battle here.

That's it, thanks again to everyone for checking and giving your feedback, and above all, thanks to Henry Tan for giving me this prize, I love it, apparently I'm first to finish this.

30 day RPG challenge - Week 3

Still going at it, it's week 3 and I got to flesh out some interesting concepts as well as transition into the final showdown area. The order of the topics had a knight and a king before the moving forward into a new area part, so wanting to be done with last week's birds and snakes, I made it so the king, along with one or maybe a few knights, escape the capital city from a terrible danger and intercept the hero to tell him about it and summon him there. They end up there to see the area assaulted by a floating giant structure. Presumably an army has also descended to do some damage.

15 - New Armor - A Not-So-Pop-Culture reference!
16 - New Weapon - Something for the elven sidekick! 

17 - Local Solider. Tales of the hero's resolve in the bird/snake conflict spread around, and an envoy of escapees from the kingdom's Capital come searching for help. The kingdom is in devastating trouble. 
18 - Local ruler/king. The hero is led to an encampment where the frightened King awaits to tell about how the Capital is being taken over by a dark force. He is ashamed for fleeing, but it had to be done. 
19 - Home - The Town Portal location. A place for rest, stash loot, craft. Cross-section. Not alot of experience with this subject, but learning.
20 - New Area - The team approaches the Capital and the final chapter starts.
21 - Secret Level - Portal into Jelly Land where the team gathers power-ups for their transporting friend. 


Final week incoming, was fun so far. Check the hashtag #30daysRPGchallenge on Facebook to see more people doing it!
