dw5 wip3 by sandara dw5 wip3 by sandara
the final composition sketch... now i'm not sure which one to go with. the legs or the tentacles.. what do you guys think?

info :

Dominance War V has rolled round again, and i'll be taking part. i've made a little DWV folder here on my DA, and i'll be dumping in my wips as i go along.

the theme this year is "Rise of the Gods". so we're supposed to design a god. mine's god of change. or metamorphosis. or mutation. i haven't decided.

my chosen forum is CGhub, same as last year. my thread is here :

The tentacles make it seem more like an alien than a God in my opinion, so for that reason I'd go with the legs.

I prefer the tentacles. I think they make it a more dynamic image. The legs are kind of static and lack motion while the tentacles are all about motion.

As far as design goes, the legs hold stronger in the painting. There is also strength and understanding of destruction from it.

I think I like the one with the arms more, but not the back legs. Combine the tentacles in the back, maybe? Cuz THAT would look cool! :la:
I really love your work... Could you give me a piece of your talent and inspiration? I could really use both... T_T

Well to suite the purpose I would say legs, seems more intelligent/ god-like. The tentacles are awesome, too, but gives more associations to aliens attacking me thinks.

I would totally go for the legs.

It really does make it look more powerful. The tentacles, although threatening, make it look smaller and not as impressive.

Also, I don't know why tentacles make it look "old world". Old gods and monsters had legs, and usually lots of them. Tentacles remind me of a modern day alien stereotype.

More compositional wise, I'd go with the Tentacles. The main reason why, is that the first composition, everything is too vertical, too straight up and down. With the Tentacles, we get some horizontals playing in the field which breaks up the space better. I think It would be awesome if you could combine the two in some sort of way.

The legs feel stronger, more bestial. They force the focus up, towards the smaller figure, giving that figure more power. The tentacled look feels a bit more relaxed, there isn't the tension that draws you in quite like the angled legs do.

The tentacles seem more devastating.
The Legs give him a sense of power? if that makes any sense.

Tentacles seems the more balanced picture, but legs makes more sense. Oh! But with the small 'body' at the head as the focal point, tentacles work best, I think. Looks more like it's in command of all rather than dragging the rest of the body along as he speeds forward.

Both concept images are stunning. The top one would be easier to put some more detail in the legs. The tentacle one seems like it's missing the same rich details that you have on the base of the creature. If you go with the bottom one, maybe make more scale pikes on the tentacles, or the end of the tentacles like spears. :nod:

I vote for tentacles. It's scarier, more.. traditional. Tentacles coming out of the sky.. I'd bow down, pray and change my undies.

It's incredible either way, however:

If you're going for God-like, the legs give much more emphasis to power. On another note, the tentacles make it seem far more like an alien than any sort of God.
Hope that helps. :)

The tentacles remind me of War of the Worlds. I think you should use the legs. Love by the way.
