Sup!

Super stoked about this, cannot wait to see what people make, this should turn out to be an epic challenge. :)

Only a couple rough sketches, still gotta make a load more and iterate a lot but just wanted to make a thread. :)

edit: removed junk

Still haven't decided on what weapon type I want to do, will probably end up going with mace but still have a lot of exploration to do. I'm just gonna be spamming these crappy sketches before even starting any real concepts, just to get some shapes going in my head.

Let's do theeeeeeeees!!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

    I'm a fan of the first design. The skulls style really sells its for me.

    I like the design of the angelic one, but it doesn't look weaponised enough...

    Got a feeling about this rough one, may go further with it and give it a real design.

    ...Or just scrap it and keep going, most likely :)

    Was hoping you would be in, looking forward to it fletcher :D
    Latest is much better than your first crop, maybe make the axe part heftier, and exagerate bits of the skull, like the teeth or something ?

    I. Can. Not. Wait. For. More. Progress.

    Periods for emphasis. Love your work!

    The very first concept you made with the crazy unique looking skull is by far my favorite thus far.

    oh Fletcher you sexy beast, I was just waiting for you to enter, your drawing style matches the Darksider universe so well.

    as for your sketches so far, I love the design, however I think they could handle getting even bulkier, as for now your axe feels like a one-handed weapon.

    I like all of them except the first 2. Their sillouettes don't compare with the other ones (which are pretty awesome)

    Cheers guys

    @ pulyx

    Yeah, I don't think so too, I don't think they even slightly interesting, Just wanted draw some quick shapes to get my head around some things. :)


    @ Zpanzer

    yeah, I agree, I'm not really fussed about the handle at the moment as for the most part, it's not really going to be a hugely interesting part of the weapon, no matter what design I eventually go with, just throwing together quickies. :)

    Cheers for the feedback!

    I started iterating on the last one a bit, turned back into a hammer as I wasn't really too fond of how generic the axe looked. I'm thinking demonic/darksiders core:

    still need to clean up the design (that spiky tongue thing just seems like it would break off if you hit anything with it) and add more twisted demonic organic like bits, although I like the skull and the idea of making one so I don't really wanna get rid of it. :/

    I like the tongue spike. A lot of medieval war hammers had armor piercing spikes like that. :)

    Latest concept looks great. Maybe remove the spike coming out of the top of the skull in the middle of the hammer head? Might give some nice negative space in that area.

    Unfortunately it didn't turn out too well, just seemed good in my head. :(

    Well here I am:

    edit:
    well, may as well show the one before as well:

    Crow temple yo.

    Very rough because today has been pretty much just constantly painting over things instead of committing to an idea and polishing it. This is just where the PSD ended up at 2am :p

    But I am starting to get on board with crow temple more, I like the style and I think there are some interesting possibilities.

    I even tried to make an axe from this where the blade was the wing, but it didnt work too well, may try it again. Too tempting to go with very symmetrical shapes as it helps (at least for me) maintain a cleaner design...

    bleh, I dunno, I'll come back to this fresh tomorrow. Either way, I'm pretty stoked about crow temple possibilities, I just need to remain very faithful to the style...hmmm...

    I wish I was as good at painting and design as the rest of you guys, just looking in other peoples threads and how easily they come up with such great ideas is a bit overwhelming. :)

    EDIT:

    AUUURGH, Another idea too late at night to bring to fruition.. >_<

    Cool ideas! I really like the folded wings blinding the skull in that 2nd to last one. Really awesome detail.

    I actually like the bottom design the most. It got a nice flow to it overall.

    That's badass, mr Fletcher! My vote definitely goes to the crow temple one. It would make a good fit for the game.
    Maybe you could try pushing the crow skulls' silhouettes a bit more, but not much; you're on to something really good here. :)

    Fletcher the bottom one looks badass, and what's up crow temple buddy! I'd say keep drawing for one more night until you're happy with the design. I'm looking forward to your stuff man.

    Yeah I like the bottom one a lot but the second I started putting colour into it, it went out of the Darksiders style and began to look more like a weapon from Diablo.

    I like the possibilities of Crow temple designs and think it should end up a lot more interesting. I'm hoping to get a solid design down by the end of today and then I can start fiddling with some stuff in 3d. :)

    Thanks for the feedback guys, hopefully the next pic will be a finished-ish concept.

    Shaping up great Fletcher. I prefer the crow one myself. Maybe you could mix in some crow's feet around the hilt or pommel?
