Sunday Art Dump 12th of July

Oh Snap! Pretty pictures arriving on time this week!

Now over the last week I have continued to focus on the Ophidia, mostly because I like the character but also because I find him an interesting challenge. How do you put normal clothes on him, how do you make him look more sapient and less monstrous and what pose looks awesome as a miniature?

First up I have some sketches. The first is just a different angle on the big guy and the second is a sketch of some clothes.

Out of all of these I think the bottom pose is the most interesting.

Here I look at some possible poses for the miniature. I know I need to look at more reference (reference is king), but when I doodle these I tend to be at work where looking for references of giant snake-people tends to be frowned upon.And finally we come to a set of 3 images that I have been playing with this morning. 3 different styles of clothing roughed out over the top of a side view of the Ophidia. Mostly I was just seeing how the clothes changed the look of the model and how he would wear clothes considering his lack of legs and his large spines on his back.
