Sci-Fi Barbarian by DKDevil Sci-Fi Barbarian by DKDevil
This is a sci-fi Barbarian that I worked on lately. Its made out of a variety of shapes that I've done with alchemy over the past couple days. It also has quite a bit of photoshop work in there such as various shapes and colors. I'd love input on this, I know its simple, but its still awesome.


Big thanks to whoever made the circular pattern brushes, I got them in a big brush pack that gave no credits so I have no idea who made them.

EDIT: Changed image slightly (Added a glow to the lights)
Also I now know where the arcane circles come from! They're from Obsidian Dawn, a digital arts resources site! you can get the brushset directly from them here [link]

EDIT 2: Made the watermark less intrusive.

EDIT 3: Made it EVEN LESS intrusive.

EDIT 4: According to ~Increality The circular brush on his chest and arms were made by David Levy of Steambot, it's featured in his Gnomon DVD.
I have since made my own similar custom brush that you can see on parts of Resonance!

Done with Alchemy and Photoshop CS4

Looks like a mechanical version of the Walker Warrior from Sanctum 2, and that's a good thing! Love this design!

I did design bosses for an indie game called Cross Fate in this style. Should be able to find it with a simple google search (its a mech fighter with anime style characters). And that project is still moving along very smoothly.

This walks the line between abstract and representation - it's like the *idea* of a robot, as opposed to the robot itself. Very, very cool.

That's the idea! The shapes are also vague enough for most people to have slightly different interpretations. Sometimes makes working with clients a bit of a chore, because they might see the head where I see the shoulder (more obvious on my other images in this style).

Glad you like! :D

I don't think it took particularly long. Probably about 3 hours of focused work. XD Glad so many people like the result though.

How did you make it in only 3 hours? It has a lot of detail! Did you make this in photoshop cs (insert # version here)? If so, can you recommend me any sites that gives tutorials in making artwork as detailed as this in a quick amount of time? I know how to use photoshop, but I don't have the creative suite version, I can use the cs version on my school's computers. I'll try to squeeze some time in to practice between work and classes...

I actually make a bunch of components using alchemy (get it at al.chemy.org) and then toss those into photoshop. I transform, duplicate, and move them around as much as I have to to get to a decent composition.

After that its just a matter of painting the neons (I like custom brushes for this), messing with the colors and effects.

Of course my more complicated ones can take more than a day, but its relatively simple.
