    Hello everyone, it's been an awfully long time since I posted anything here, my apologies.

    So to make it up to you all how about I show you what i've been drawing since I last posted...

    Gold_Shrine_dragon_gold.png Gold_Shrine_dragon_diamonds4.png

    Gold_Shrine_dragon_gems.png

    Now don't get too excited, they're not official concept art or anything. But I got fed up of the current shrine designs being nothing more than coloured boxes so I did a few designs for some of them. Hope they make up for my absence a little bit and that you all like them :p

    I also remembered to copy across the Photoshop file for @Antking 's theme last time I loaded up my old laptop so i'll be revisiting that in the near future (i'll have another go at a core design now my skills have improved a bit more)

    In my mean time here is a preview of how it looked up to now.

    Obviously the core and emblem are both still missing at the moment but hopefully i'll be able to work on them when I get some free time.

    And I haven't forgotten about @Evi 's Manavede either :)

    Some more progress on the Manavede.
    Manavede_02.png
    He's missing his mouth full of sharp teeth and some more detailing on his body, but im pretty happy with the overall shape/design now.

    It kind of strikes me as what I imagine my leech would look like if it evolved to a bug form so i'll probably go with that idea and give it a tongue as well as the teeth.

    Changed the colouring a little bit and added a mouthful of sharp teeth (plus a leech inspired tongue). What do you think @Evi ?
    I'm almost considering chopping off the back/tail area and adding an extra abdomen area with a few more legs before the tail gets reattached just to make it a bit longer and more centipede/millipede like.

    I now have a reason to look under my bed for monsters. <8S

    Hm... Try making it longer, and we'll see how it looks. :3

    Well it definitely looked better longer... Although I decided I didn't like the tongue... or the eyes...

    Manavede_04.png

    Here's the "blind" version, which has adapted to the darkness underground by sensing and hunting sources of magical energy (tying into the original idea of it being a magic counter and feasting on imps)

    As an alternative, we have the glowing night-vision eyes (I can't decide which colour I like best):

    Manavede_05_blue.png Manavede_05_green.png Manavede_05_blue2.png

    Which would certainly make for a terrifying sight for the poor imp that digs into a cavern full of neutral hostile ones...

    It does look better being longer. The blind concept of using the scent of magic and magic users is a nice touch too, like the bat's sonar. :3
    As for the glowing night-vision eyes... They all equally creep me out, so more power to you!

    Think i'm just about done with this little critter, been reworking his front legs/claws to better fit the slashing type attacks he's supposed to do, I also added a bit of hair to them to make him that little bit creepier.

    *Looks up*
    Manavede, devour him slowly!
    *Crunch*
    Yeouch! Not me!

    Anyways, I been thinking of requesting another art for a creature (Actually, an Empire unit), but I don't want to overload your To-Do list.
    That and the creature I'd like to request for has a very touchy history that I rather not delve into.

    Hit me, my to-do list is pretty empty right now and I wouldn't mind having a crack at something empire related.

    EDIT as long as it isn't a fairy :p

    Now this is what he'd look like if he was from the Spore game (Thank's Riva :D)

    Oh don't worry, I don't have any more fairy/pixie related things.
    Though the next is still a cute female, so she might as well be a fairy.

    Do or don't, I wouldn't blame you. :p

    If you're bored you could always take a crack at my clockmaker underlord concept.

    That dungeon core could be EPIC

    ;)

    In my mind the dungeon core for that theme would be some sort of astronomical clock, not only tells the time but also the date and the positions of constellations and various heavenly bodies.

    Manavede ZBrush Project, MK. I
    Manavede 1.png
    A full view of my Manavede file [unfinished - how many segments do you want before the tail segment, Evi?] Manavede Head.png
    Manavede Head 2.png
    The head is the most detailed part of the Manavede model atm, with one of the fangs broken off at the tip, magical saliva, and veined tongue. I will keep on working on getting the other segments with individual details... With the permission of Evi and Nutter666, of course :)

    This is an older Manavede female, who had served with Underlord Karnak for nearly 80 years at the time of capture.

    And to think such a concept was born from me just randomly drawing in art class...
    Maybe I should draw the Sinless myself, but that's for another time.

    Well, you easily have my permission, as any suggestions I make are free game to toy around with.
    As for the tail segments, I think it's plenty long enough for now. Growing so large has stunted them, so you won't be seeing super long manavedes for a very long time.
