First pass, everything starts somewhere. There are things about this one I really like, the shield not one of them.
A new direction completely. They wanted a specific feel I had not been hitting on. With this one, I landed very close to the target. At this point I was keeping the drawing very loose and very light and darkening it on the computer. I was sending versions to Stacy and editing them really quickly to narrow down the direction they wanted.
Getting closer still. The horns continue to get attention and he needs to appear to be fast, so he gets thinned down a bit.
The finalized turnaround with and with out shield. An image of the finalized miniature can be found here.
Some more of my behind the scenes design work crept up in one other place in the MM2. If you look real close at the Genasi you will see armor deigns I created a while back. I am pretty sure I can not share any of that work off yet, but you can get a glimpse of it in the MM2.
