Hookmen boat sketch

Just a quick paint over of the boat concept, just thought it would be nice to see it in some water... probably wont use this at all but was nice to do..

Hookmen boat

Concept for the Hookmen boat, from the thumbnails i went with a mixture of number 1 and 6 and came with this small rusty old fisherman's boat. I first blocked out a 3d model then took some renders to paint over, not sure if I'm going to work on the back view yet... might just do other orthographic views so anyone can see how the rest of the boat looks.

Hookmen boat thumbnails

Some thumbnails for the boat that the Hookmen arrive on to capture Granger. I imagine the boat to be more of a smaller looking fisherman's boat, all rusty and quite old looking. leaning towards 1,2 and 6.

Crystal Shield

Finished concept for the Crystal shield Granger takes with him to save his daughter. i want to do a back view sketch when i have time to show the arm strap, and also to show that the crystal part at the top can been seen through by the user of the shield.

Samarol rifle

Concept for the Samarol characters rifle, still some things i want to finish up such as the bullets it uses and other things you can see floating around. Last piece of weaponry next, Granger's blood red shield.

Harpoon gun

Finished concept for the Hookmen harpoon gun, pretty happy with how it turned out, still needs some tweaking with some dark areas i think but I'm happy enough to leave it for know.

Emporor Hu's Trasient sword

Emporor Hus sword final concepts, think i want to go and rework the silver part between the blade and the handle.. don't think it quite fits the rest of the design but i need to move on for now.

Unmer seeing blade

Final concept for the Unmer seeing blade. Not really happy with how the blade turned out.. don't think it really looks like metal too much but hopefully ill be able to improve on that later when i have time.

Harpoon Gun- 3d block out

Here i have blocked out one of the harpoon gun concepts. I figured id make multi-sub objects in max to lay down some flat colours onto the model, this will cut down the painting stage a huge amount! i don't really know why i haven't done it before. Pretty happy with how this turned out, going to take some higher res screenshots before painting over this weapon.

Hookmen Harpoon gun

Some sketches for a possible harpoon gun that the Hookmen have. liking the idea more of having pressurised gas to fire the harpoon instead of a normal rifle type mechanism, think it fits the whole theme to the book much better.

Crystal shield

Some shield designs. Liking the first 3 more, not sure which one i prefer may need to to tweak the designs still as I'm not 100% percent happy with them.

Replicating sword

More weapon thumbnails, these thumbnails are for the sword Granger has at the end of the book.

Samarol Carbine rifle

Some more weapon thumbnails for today. These thumbnail sketches are for the carbine rifle that the Samarol characters have. So i tried to add bits in to make it tie in with the characters armour such as the diamond shape. Ive also added a stopper onto the barrel so the Unmer seeing blade can be attached to the rifle.

Unmer seeing blade

Back to working on weapon concepts now, planning to get all the thumbnails out the way this week hopefully. Initially i had idea of having more of a sword for this design but the blade is able to attach to a rifle so i didn't want it huge but something that would still do enough damage if used in close combat. Not to keen on the first few concepts but i think i started to get someone towards the last few ideas.
