A design for a faction symbol for the heroic Acolytes in the upcoming 'Countdown to Ragna Rock' comic.

Basically, the idea is supposed to invoke the fact that they're on the side of the angels, hence the wing-like protrustion from the symbol. Of course, the 'A' stands for Acolyte, so no further explanation needed there, right?

The text is basically a hand drawn version of the 'Nosegrind Demo' font, with a couple of tweaks here and there. I used a few Gradients here and there, as well as the Plastic Wrap tool. Of course, you can see an unaltered version of the symbol to your left.

Also, if you look really carefully, you can actually find all of the letters that spell 'Acolyte' in there! (A couple will require your imagination, so go nuts.)


Design and Concept by Ryan Joseph Rodriguez
The Acolytes, 'Countdown to Ragna Rock' (c) Outlaw'd Studios.

Your line art would make a great cartoon. So detailed but simple. /thumb up

Thank yew. =)

If you wanted to have a sneak peek as to how those symbols came about...

...then here's a little scrapwork concerning insignias, pointy things and my frequents bouts with insanity.

Here's another, this time, for the bad guys.

Image

A bit jaggy, I know.
The design basically comes from a stylised version of Zanmato/Inferno's heads.
I showed this to a friend of mine, and she found it rather creepy and evil-looking.
...mission accomplished! =)

I figured it was high time to introduce you guys to some of the villains in the CTR universe. And who better than the resident insane pyromaniac (and the first villain to make an appearance in the comic), Inferno?

Codename: Inferno
Real Name: Unknown
Age: Unknown
Origin?: Unknown
Team: Shadow Guild
Notable Powers/Abilities: A purely pyrokinetic being, Inferno's very body is aflame. Is capable of launching fire-based projectiles from his body, and uses jets of flame and his own thermal heat to fly. Occasionally carries a morning star like weapon made of rock and magma.


BIO:

If Inferno isn't setting something on fire and laughing gleefully at the resulting chaos as said object burns to the ground, it's a miracle. Inferno is extremely insane, and, as such, extremely dangerous, as he is a clear-cut example of power in the wrong hands.
Never content with anything unless it's on fire, Inferno is a one man(?) engine of destruction, if not, at the very least, one that's described as 'a few fries short of a Happy Meal'.

In his own, twisted mind, he's just somebody looking for a bit of fun. Unfortunately for everybody else, that idea of 'fun' involves laughing hysterically as people run around screaming as they go up in flames, cities and neighbourhoods reduced to smouldering ash at his hands, and, most annoyingly, his habit of cracking fire-based puns and jokes as the world burns around him. This makes a lot of people bitter at him, but they're just spoilsports, according to Inferno.

What really chafes him, however, is whenever he looks for a good time, an Acolyte or two would be there to dampen his fun. In particular, he despises Commander Blaze for humiliating him a good while back.

While Inferno commonly goes off and does his own thing, he serves the Shadow Guild and therefore answers to a higher authority. One which doesn't actually mind Inferno burning things, just as long as said things being burned aren't what he's looking for. Sadly, a bored mind and the mentality of a kid with a magnifying glass on a hot summer day has wreaked havoc on quite a few missions, quite to the annoyance of his superiors.


COSTUME:

Inferno's costume is slightly reminiscent of a German trooper's uniform from WWII, with the obvious omission of details such as the characteristic helmet. His boots glow with magma, and many portions of his body are exposed just to demonstrate how 'hot' he is. The shoulder vents which fire jets of flame occasionally are really just for show- in peaks of anger, these vents will spew flames furiously.

The Shadow Guild insignia adorns his vest.


But, just to show that he has a sense of humour, he actually stuck several 'smiley face' buttons on his suspender guards. He pretty much figures you'd need some cheering up whilst being roasted alive, anyway.


PERSONALITY:

An insane, cackling loon with a German accent and absolutely no regard for human life, Inferno seems to find humour in everything, up to the point where he doesn't take anything seriously. Or, at least, it seems that way until you really tick him off, at which point he's more focused and tends to really turn up the heat. *groans*

He tends to make insane wisecracks as he goes about his business, mostly bad fire puns and jokes. Really. They are -awful-.

He hates the Acolytes and would like nothing more than to see them burn, but Commander Blaze really gets his goat.
Aside from obvious jealousy that the leader of the Acolytes is a rival fire-wielder, Blaze has also humiliated Inferno in the past, which can possibly explain why he's so unhinged nowadays. He seems pretty wary of Crystal, as water can cause devastating damage to his own body.

Inferno's weakness is his inability to focus- any task at hand, no matter how simple or complex, can quickly turn to "SET EVERYTHING ON FIRE" in two seconds flat if he becomes bored with his assignment. He isn't incompetent, mind you, but once it enters his mind, he has extreme difficulty getting back on track. He can be outwitted in this manner, but defeating him can be a chore.


QUOTES:

"Ze name is Inferno, and I'm here to turn up ze heat!"

"BURN TO ZE GROUND, ACOLYTES!"

"Look at zem run! Of course, when you're dis hot, I guess zey can't help it! AHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!"

"Commander Blaze! I vill reduce you to nothing but ASH!"

Couple of new concepts to palm off here.

Image

Concept Art for Abominator.

If he was a toy, he'd have a hell of a lot of gimmicks, namely:

- Detachable right arm shoulder guard, capable of acting as a 'riot shield';
- Left arm fires like a grappling hook;
- Detachable mines on left arm and knees;
- Pushing back on his right arm and pressing a switch allows the right arm to punch with severe force.

His gigantic right arm's hand can be altered to become a chainsaw. Though you can't see any articulation lines of the sort here, it's done by pushing the segmented pieces that make up his palm together, and folding each finger to form each tooth of the saw blade. A little concept can be seen in the upper left hand corner of the pic.


He has the personality of a serial killer with the mannerisms of a trophy collector. Has a sense for business, too.



Image


Concept art for Scorn.

As you can tell, he's not the least bit happy to see you. Or anybody, for that matter. His life is pure hell, as unleashing his blades causes him pain. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your POV), said pain serves to drive him into a rage that allows him to attack with lethal force and unpredictable motions. He can also pulls these blades out from his body to act as swords or (if he opts to pull out blades from his exposed rib cage) bloody boomerangs. His blood is corrosive to human touch.

...despite that, he tries to pass himself off as an ordered being to find peace within himself. Sadly, it only takes a small suggestion that he doesn't like to have him drop this facade and get pissed off again.

...he also suffers from chronic migraines. A lot of them. Having annoying team-mates certainly doesn't help.

Oh hai

I used up the last two hours of my life drawing a fictitious girl walking in a fictitious park looking at a fictitious bird perched on a fictitious bush using a not-so fictitious pencil on some not-so fictitious paper while being bored out of my not-so fictitious [SIZE="6"]mind.[/SIZE]

With that said. SCREW the rules with regards to this pik-chair.

Some concept sketches for Commander Blaze.
I thought he looked too uptight in his superhero outfit, so I gave him a casual look to make him more or less, 'one of the guys', which he really is supposed to be off the field.

...extra comments arise from boredom and insanity. Enjoy.
