DIGITAL ART – Scorpio Dagger Concept Design
A scorpio dagger design (and new portfolio piece) I've been working on for quite some time now.
While it’s causing an extremely high amount of damage,
the dagger also injures the bearer in doing so. It has to be treated with caution.
With great power comes great responsibility.
The first thing I did was drawing all those tiny silhouettes in order to get a clearly readable shape.
I mainly focused on a general dagger form combined with the aesthetics of a scorpio.
After that I tried to get a better understanding of the actual application and drew examples of holding the dagger and also some other weapon variations.
When I finally picked my favorite silhouettes, I created some rough sketches which were the base for the following line drawings and my final value painting.
I also did some material studies / spheres of leather, stone and metal (steel / iron)
Finally, I created several different color schemes. Which one do you prefer?
