Dawngate Skin - Experimental Petrus by nicholaskole Dawngate Skin - Experimental Petrus by nicholaskole
Yay! Work is becoming unsecret :)
This is a skin design, part of the work I've been doing for EA/Waystone Games for their MOBA project Dawngate.
Petrus is a shaper from the high society of the West, who used all his art to replace his lost arm with something stronger. His in-game base version has a giant stone arm, but before he crafted that, he experimented with living tissue (from a creature like Vex) to create a twisted iteration. I proposed a few different arm designs and themes for him, and included some of that exploration above- stay tuned for more Dawngate concepts!

Wow! Awesome artwork, he looks sort of what I imagined an NPC, I've been working on for my ongoing D&D campaign, would look like. My villians name is Dagon Beastclaw, he's a Necrophage Malarite who has a graphed Shoggoth Arm.

Is it wrong when I say that every line you draw is perfect?

Ooohh, pretty cool! I'm sure the stone arm is great, but this version is neato as well. Man, I'm glad i didn't have to make that choice! :)

Pity, it's a MOBA, not a proper RPG... :(

I agree- would be lovely to just lean in and make a straight up rpg, but we're doing a lot of lore stuff- so it's fun!

Well, idk, maybe the gaming has changed, what worked back then just isn't feasible anymore... But one can't blame the developers for going with what's popular, cause an unprofitable game = dead game.
From what I heard, it's bad management that undermined copernicus, not bad art. Dev teams just have to make it real... :)

Exactly! We're just trying to bring whatever we can to the project we're on- and if we love that old RPG flavor, trying to bring some of that to the MOBA space. Hopefully people dig it!

I love seeing the different concepts of this guy.  The 14th-century European influence in the sleeves makes me happy for reasons I can't explain XD

Who cares about socially acceptable when you could be wearing clothes like that?  LET'S SHIFT SOME FASHION PARADIGMS!  WOOOOO!  (Ain't wearin' no corsets, though.  Not happening. )

Great concept! But will this be one of those MOBA's where the perspective is such that you can't really see any of the great character art?
