Heretic...

~update: fixed the BG a little and added some Dumahim (biggest clan in Nosgoth) (=the red dots with brown&black ;) )~(sorry to fill your watch list with this)

My entry for the LOKclan contest :shrug:.
Priestess: "Heretic, welcome to your undoing! Your sorcery is useless in this holy place."
Raziel: "My faith in destiny is all I need to prevail."
ah, I know that by heart now (hopefully a correct version, remember, I'm German :P ) *lol*. The audio file of Raziel meeting the vampire priestess. She got cut from SR1 because of technical probs :( . Looky here: [link] This is my version of her and the temple. I thought a plain white robe would be too boring (even though she also has it in the comic :P) and the vampire worshipers also had red clothes.
I messed up with painting styles here...the chars are too detailed for the sloppy BG :(, but I had to rush so much in the end.
The Kain-statue BTW was an official sketch I drew over *whistles*. The signs are from [link]
Everything else...by me. My premiere on wraith Raziel, the reaver, lighting from below and a large BG. Originally Raziel was supposed ot cover more of the pic, but then the priestess would've been so far away and lost all the details. I also wanted to include vampies and followers, but no time.

PS 7, refs: Raziel SR2 screenshots, Priestess sketch (that's why the anatomy is odd, I tried it without ref).
Raz&;Priestess&Kain (c)Eidos

Details: Raziel [link] priestess [link]

Priestess: "Faith, ha faith left you when you were excommunicated by our lord Kain"

Raziel: "I was executed, not excommunicated you will learn the difference."

(I love his comebacks, so elegant and yet in your face.)

nice :) great idea :)
isolde's avatar
thankies :D...such a pity one couldn't fight her in SR1, would've been fun *g*
qnop's avatar
yeah I think its a pity too, but maybe they will release the opriginal version of SR1 one day if we sponsor them
isolde's avatar
hmm...or some fans will have to program a new level *g* using the existant hidden temple-areas etc. I bet there are many SR fans who can do that...I've seen mods and whatnot for many games...ain't there any for LOK?
(and until then...I'm gonna try to understand 3dStudio Max and hopefully learn something in my studies ;))

So there it is... the final composition. Lovely work on the temple structure, and the lightsource (jaja, das Feuer) makes it all come together.

*Applaus*

:bow: ;) :boogie: eigentlich sollte es da noch mehr Feuer geben...aber dazu bin ich dann nimmer gekommen...*loL*
CreatureSH's avatar
Vielleicht auch besser so - immerhin sieht's so klasse aus.

I think the background looks quite groovy, I like the flame shooting out of the Raziel chap's hand :)
isolde's avatar
thanks :D, the flame is actually the ghost-form of the sword "soul reaver" :), it got "tied" to him when his maker tried to destroy him with it and it broke...
Spaceman-Chris's avatar
that'd be annoying if you wanted to scratch yourself...
isolde's avatar
*lol*! never thought of that. :rofl: aw, well, in the second game he can switch it on and off when he wants to ;) (in the first one it's "off" once he gets hurt in the "normal world")

Excellent!I love how you did the colors, shading and background :nod: the effects are beautiful and the perspective is well done too.The ambientation is truly brilliant ^^ I really like the background, it goes well with the rest of the picture, you certainly put the "work" in "artwork" for this one.
Keep the great work! :D And good luck in the contest!
isolde's avatar
