Some artist friends and I did a sort of round robin with character concepts, where we roughed out a bunch of ideas then passed them along to see what would happen with the final product for a Guardian design. The only thing we all were in immediate agreement on was crazy antlers.
So my initial brush sketches where I tried to get an idea for the silhouette:
and then Alyson Phillips ended up doing our final Concept image for the creature, which I then have modeled. This is the base mesh, the UV's our laid out. All it needs is texture which will come in the next week or two, hopefully. Barring any outside work.
