Hey Polycount peeps!

LATEST UPDATE - Warlock Cursed Dreadwood Set - FINAL IMAGES

Steam Workshop if you'd like to rate it up http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile...e&id=111317354











~ Original Post ~

This is a team effort between myself: REKLAS (Justin Messner), Screwonhed (Jeff Seaman), and jwest (Jesse West)

The 3 of us will be creating a set for the Warlock titled...


~ Cursed Ritual ~
Forever on his quest for arcane knowledge, Warlock must don ceremonial garb to handle some of the rarer tomes he acquires or he may become consumed by the dark magic that surround the the foul and accursed texts.



Initial General Direction Idea (REKLAS)




Head and Shoulder Designs (REKLAS)




Belt Designs (REKLAS)




Head Designs (jwest)




Bracer Designs (Screwonhed)




Urn Designs (Screwonhed)




Stay tuned for more concepts as we iterate on our ideas. Please post your thoughts and feedback as we would love to hear it.

Updated with higher res Urn Image

Thanks guys.

@erradler - Word. Some sort of skull-esque urn with glowing eyes & mouth would be rad.


Here's more Belt/Satchel Designs. I'm thinking about going with number 8.

My favorites from the last pic's are 6 and 8 because it looks cool how the scrolls are put in vertically in the bag

This is looking awesome guys! Clean designs and great presentation. Subscribed!

Shoulders 1
Head 1 (from head-specific designs)
Bracer 2
Lantern 3
Bag 6 (the book on the outside makes more sense since it could take more wear and tear being less protected, whereas the scrolls are more fragile and need to be protected more inside the bag)

The sharp angles for Brace 2 and Shoulders 1 just look wicked. I'm pumped to see how this comes out.

@Mike.j.c. - Noted.
@Rik - Good point about the scrolls and book.


Here's some staff designs. All of which would have the Warlocks ball of fire particle orb thing within the top of them, just imagine it. I'll detail out a few of these.

The scroll and rope in that last one came out nice. Also my picks for the staff are 1, 10, 11, 12, and 17 is really interesting.

Good stuff. All the concepts have been pretty solid so far. From the staffs, I like 11, 14, and 17.

@Screwonhed - Should probably note that those urns are numbers 4, 5 and 6. If we could animate that urn jaw opening and closing between urn 5 and 6 that'd be awesome. Haha, probably not though. Urn 4 has an interesting shape and might look cool from the top.

@SgtNasty - Thanks a lot Noted.


I think a bit more orange glow showing from more of a top-down in-game view would be nice.

Urn designs continued...

@$!nz - Thanks.

@Rhinokey - Hahahahahahaha getting called out Jessie. AGREED! Step your game up! ;) lol oh man.

@TMiuccio - Thanks. Yeah we're all working with the original color palette and aren't planning on altering it too much so he will still resemble the warlock at a quick glance while playing the game. He'll just a more badass enhanced version.

Working with the first design, making a low poly to test and make sure I can skin it correctly. Made two variations of the shoulders.

So after some modeling test we decided to push the design a little more. So here is some quick concepts I put together. Let me know what you guys think.
