I forgot to add some dieselpunk references so here it is. These will be a mix with the original Janissary references above
Janissary Solder with Dieselpunk twist sounds quite interesting!
I very much agree! Kinda makes me regret I didn't choose Poland with the Winged Hussars!
@rakagami @midnightmoon-shortline Glad you guys like my idea
Just some character thumbnails, nothing fancy yet as these are meant to be viewed small. I wrote each element to combine into a structured drawing. I gave upon B because it's too mecha and would be hard to show some cultural things with that silhuetteI little history about Janissaries: They used a technique called the Ottoman slap against their enemies which caused concussion or even death. They trained on wet marble slabs to harden their hands and get the technique down. Hence I chose to add a mechanical arm so this dieselpunk janissary can slap his enemies into oblivion. Combined with the training this will prove to be a formidable weapon
"Ottoman Slap" sounds like a character from a fighting game like Guilty Gear or Street Fighter.
True, I thought of the same thing lol
Here's some mask and headdress design sketches for the Dieselpunk Janissary. Btw the mask also acts as a gas mask. Which one do you like?
Definitely liking B2, personally. Just catches my eye the most
thanks for the feedback
I like C version, just because of the "hat". I like those 2 different parts of different materials! You can easily combine a Turkish star\moon from B version to the center, and that central rhombus also)Googles makes it more interesting also)
That's a version I considered also, I feel like I want to use the googles for sure. Thanks for the feedback
I also like B2 - maybe you could change the value of the gem on the top, it's a bit distracting in my opinion when the eyes are kind of white, too
Yes, dimming the gem would be a good choice but these are ultimately sketches, not final and probably won't refining these to save time. The changes will be made when I'm doing the turnaround
I just wanted to mention it
I didn't want to come across as defensive lol I replied like that so you don't feel like I didn't care when I won't be making changes on this for now. I value the community feedback
For me B2 is the coolest, mate!Looks really dope, I am looking forward to your progress
Thanks for the kind words
I like B2. 👍🏼 A real eye-cacher.Also I think it shows more obvious the turkish theme, in comparison to A.
glad you liked it
