Lost One and Cyclops

Hello again, blogosphere. Here are a few things that I've been working on lately.

Here's the progress on this guy. I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with the design, and I was simply getting tired of painting on this, so I'm taking a short break from it. I'll return to it soon, though.

Here's another form of the same character. I mentioned the concept of Aura's in this game's gameplay a couple of posts ago. This is the main character with a green aura, which roughly corresponds to the element of earth. In this form he has an earthy/greenish skin tone, a more muscular physique, a greater number of more highly pronounced protuberances, and a somewhat exaggerated bone structure (see the cheekbones and knuckles). I'm unsure what to do with the lower body.

Another character from this same world. His name is Oog, and he's a cyclops, sort of. In my initial thumbnails, he only had one eye, but as I painted him I decided it'd be cool to give him a deformed skull with a sunken and atrophied second eye. There are going to be several related characters/creatures with a similar eye arrangement. They are one of the main factions of antagonists in the story.

Coming up soon, another dump of life drawings, and some self portraits.

It's funny too, did you know that oog means eye in dutch?
That's probably why you named it that way, wasn't it?

Thanks, KingAcer!
I'd forgotten where the name came from, but yeah, that is why I named him that. I was heavily into using freetranslation.com to come up with names back when I was first inventing these characters.:)
