Haven't taken part in a cg challenge in a while, so when this popped up I found my self saying..
(see the forum thread for the work in progress)
Its sort of a fanart contest based on the release of World of Warcraft “Legion”
Prizes include an Oculus Rift, The Art of Blizzard Entertainment books, WoW: Legion T-shirts, Sketchbooks, Amazon Gift cards and more. Enjoy! More details here
heres my work so far..
I started with the idea of doing a mini Wandering Isle
(turtle with a forest/cabin on its shell)..
Got a lot of great inputs from @dark_minaz
the turtle in my sketch was looking too cute.. less legion.. so after looking at several refrences of the game, happened on the idea of making it a dead/skeletal part of a lair.. ie: an environment that grew around the giant carcass of a turtle..
anyway looked at some refrences of turtle bones and skulls ..
and finally started modelling this snapping turtle skull.. will add horns etc and make it more legion
some layout progress... actually starting to feel satisfied with it a bit.. now to WoW it up.. with glowy cracks and green/blue goop and flames..
