Let's do Doom extra: Baron of Hell by Mechanubis Let's do Doom extra: Baron of Hell by Mechanubis
Something I cooked up during our company's christmas party, with me being such a light of the party and all. Very quick scetch.

I don't consider this to be part of the Doom-thing I have going on, it was merely an idea that I drew down about the head of Baron of Hell. I love Doom 3's version of Hellknight, so I wanted the keep some of that feel with the good ol' Baron.

I'm gonna do a fullbody scetch shortly. Need to tweak the horns some.

Why was he not be in DOOM 3!! Waaaah!  He would have been a more dangerous opponent then the Hellknights, in matter fact it should have been the Baron of Hells to come out of that Hell portal, not the Hellknights.  This is very good headshot drawing of the Baron of Hell, it rivals against my verisons of the Baron of Hell.

You made him into the badass he was meant to be... :iconbadassplz:

I like the idea of the Baron of Hell having four horns instead of two, it makes him more intimating that way...

Thank you :3 I am actually leaning towards having 4 horns again, but I still need to do some scetching before I can start the 3D models this december (wooo). I personally liked the Hellknights a lot in Doom 3, but I can't deny that having a Baron or 12 stomping about would have been the tits <3

aww Thanks :hug: That would be badass to have the Baron of Hell being the previous doom game

I have a suggestion, why not try to make the Baron of Hell having hind quarter legs  like the previous versions of himself in DOOM 3 and the original doom series. You can either go for the DOOM 3 hellknight feet style, or the cloven hooves with fur, some fur, or no fur at all. Or whatever you want to do! :)

That could work. And I could actually experiment with fur a bit, although maybe not on the Baron. Thanks for the suggestions :)

Welp... Maybe you should give the projectile weapons a go ;) Barons are quite easily downed with some skilled DB-shotgun action.

thank you so much mate, really appreciate it XD. i shall, im thinking of starting to do 3d modelling and stuff. any tips or anything?

3D modelling is fun as hell, although it can get extremely frustrating in the beginning. So my advice is to be prepared for some serious rage-time when you start learning whatever software you choose. But just keep doing them, at some point you'll notice that the software has stopped working like an ass and you'll be free to express your imagination to the fullest.

Also, allways start working with as few polygons as possible. Seriously! The fewer the better. Only ad divisions once the lowpoly looks good. My life would have been so much easier had I followed this advice in the beginning.

I think those are the ones to beging with.

It's because I'm way too awesome for a mere mortal to handle. At least that's what I tell to myself before I go to bed every night and cry relentlessly 8B

It should have over 5k, at least.
The coloring/shading is superb, as well as the concept!

Im dissappointed in the fact that hell knights weren't horned,
and that Barons of Hell weren't included at all. :(

Awww. You flatter me ^-^

I actually really like the Hellknights design in Doom 3. It's a very iconic game-monster. But it truly is a shame they didn't include Barons in the mix. Or arachnotrons. Plus the mancubus looked rather silly :C

It's okay.
It makes me think of Resident Evil, though. xD

Did they include Pain Elementals?
I know they have Cacodemons, but I didn't see the former anywhere...

I'm wanting a devamp of Doom3 as if it were made just like the previous 2.
I'd like to see the new monsters remade to fit the old games more.

It definitely feels like they went the way of RE more, with the human monsters besides the 3 zombies.

Sadly the Pain Elementals were not around. I'm guessing this is because limitations in the tech didn't allow them to have more than a few enemies on screen at once, so the Elementals would have exhausted the engine like a motherfucker, spewing out more enemies as it goes. I'll propably give a stab at the monster in question next.

I'd be up for another Doom anytime now. Just fast paced run-and-gun against dozens upon dozens of monsters simultaneously. Although I'm pretty confident that Doom 4 will in line of most modern shooters with limited weapon capasity and very unorganic gameplay. Luckily we have Brutal Doom and Painkiller, and Bulletstorm to lesser extent <3
