Draw This Again : Asmodeus by dapper-owl Draw This Again : Asmodeus by dapper-owl
So back in highschool I really couldn't design characters. Like. At all hahahaha. All my boys were pre-pubescent girl-men with same-face. Aahhhh highschool. I did have a thing for way too much detail though, as seen in exhibit a. Recently I've been going through my old characters and redesigning them. This time was Asmodeus' turn, the King of Hell.

Artistically/technically, the newer version is better drawn and better proportioned and stuff, but I definitely prefer the first one for the underlying character design. The first design looks like a potentially interesting character (I have to admit I love the idea of a figure as dark and powerful as a king of Hell presenting himself so austerely) despite the generic anime dude look, the second might as well be a mannikin used to showcase some cool armor/wing design (which is definitely cool, don't get me wrong). I guess I just want to know who's under all that fancy armor.

The second one was really a re-design of the attire and anatomy, not really the posing of the character, so the fact that he's modelling the clothes is completely intentional.

Ah okay. Still, it would be really awesome to see the more direct comparison in the spirit of this competition thingy. I guess I'm just curious what's under the armor. :)

It's a direct comparison of the character design, which was the original intent of the image in the first place. Nothing about my motivation for drawing these images changed between the years, so it fits the spirit of the competition perfectly.

If you want to see what's under his armor you can check it out here: [link] , but these images (as you can probably see why) are not full body costume designs and wouldn't fit the competition, which is why they were left out.

Okay, gotcha.

Those are cool sketches.

The one from Highschool is still pretty good! but obviously the second one is much more developed :)
