because i am me and Looooooooove to give the harshest of crit (not really LOL, but i don’t beat around the bush to much LOL)
i don’t know if i feel the same emotion in this work as your normal stuff, but hey its a nice quick model so far, and fills the total purpose of my concept art.
in my eyes he is a lonely somewhat depressed military captain or a highish rank.
his race is scrawny, they do not look built for battle, their armour is thin and does not protect much.
their necks are longish and forward leaning partically to counter the balance of their helmets, plus coz it makes them look more vulnrable.
infact they are like marilyn manson aliens with helmets LOL.
but the emotion i was trying to portray was
hopeless, lonely, out of place, lost…
some kind of battle that should not happen, yet is captivating.
but enough of that creative artistic analysis BS LOL.
i just felt that your image portrays the character too strongly, as if he really is a warrior, and he is strong without weakness. things like the size of the armour, the thickness of the arms, neck…
p.s. my imagination has the helmets with only 4 points out the back, however since all of this is just conceptual from my POV whatever people come up with is great, i am always very interested in what flavours others put into things.
keep it up, i’ll keep the concepts pumping, and keep seeing the adaptions rolling out. infact if people take my ideas and change them, add their own style, perhaps cartoonify somthing, change the proportions, change the meaning… then all the power to them, i love it.
seeing my concepts built by other people is a kinda strange thing for me, because there is always “the way i would have done it” but seeing them all come out is great.
