Angel of Despair by AdamRoush
Angel of Despair
The Angel of Despair absorbs the souls of the hopeless and traps them within himself. Most hopelessly give up, but a few try futile attempts to tear him apart to escape.

It was fun to work on this one, and mixing cel shading with painting to give it more depth and dimension. The design took a while to get to a place that I liked, and the rendering took forever. The bloody hands especially took a while to get right, just trying to get them to look right. But I'm pretty happy with this piece.
Mantis by AdamRoush

Cyberpunk warrior #5, Mantis. She doesn’t have arms, but rather a hovering set of robotic arms that follows her chaotic and destructive self around.

I struggled a lot with this one, but I like the outcome.
Scout Final by AdamRoush
Scout Final
UPDATE 11/5/2015: To beef up my portfolio a little, I changed the rendering from the painted look this had before to this cel-shading style, since I like it so much. I also changed the color scheme a little, adding in that off-white instead of the beige it was previously. I think these changes make this image/ design much better.

This is the final design for the Scout, a character design from a personal project I did a few months ago. She's a close-combat battler who fights with her digital gauntlets, used obviously to smash faces. She's light and quick, but packs a powerful punch.

Of the three designs I did, this one was my favorite. It was fun to push the style a little, exaggerate features, and come up with some battling characters.
Skeleton Blademaster by AdamRoush
Skeleton Blademaster
The new challenge on seemed interesting enough to try. The prompt was to design a warrior rising from the grave. I designed a knight who's been dead so long so that a tree has latched onto his skeleton. And obviously, he has to have a fiery demon sword. It only makes sense. 

I only had a few days to work on this one, but I think it came out pretty well. It's pretty rough compared to the last two, but I got a lot more done in less time. Plus, it was also fun to try to figure out underlighting using a cel shading style.

Cyberpunk Warrior 4 by AdamRoush
Cyberpunk Warrior 4
Zephyria. An unhinged, sexy yet dangerous, psychotic banshee. Obviously, the cold doesn't bother her. She loves to kill for the taste of blood. I wanted her design to reflect her raw personality. 

This so far is my favorite design. I've found that exaggerating certain areas helps to draw your attention towards them, and I've been trying [in at least these last 2 designs] to incorporate a personality, and have everything in the image reflect the character's identity.
Not really news, but check out our new game Darkfire Galaxies.
It's still in development, and we're making a ton of tweaks, but it's playable and pretty fun. If I do say so myself.

Otherwise, the car I bought a mere year and a half ago keeps falling apart. If I might recommend, never get a German/ British car. They pretty much just fall apart, especially when bought used with over 60k miles. I went with an 07 Mini Cooper S, which was a huge mistake. While fun, I could've gotten a significantly better car for the amount I've spent in repairs. Learning some lesson the really hard way.

Anyways, needed to get rid of that old journal.
