Archon by Raelsatu Archon by Raelsatu
Archon Lucien as a younger angel, treading the line between righteousness & corruption.


A character/scene I've been working on this past month. The character is inspired & based off of the angel Archon Lucien from Darksiders 2.

Modeled in 3ds Max, rendered with Octane, color-grading/post-work in Photoshop. Didn't get around to full texturing this time (again), and there are some unfinished areas that I may finish & update.


Surprised & honored by the DD. I appreciate the support, and input of the artist/viewers.

Very nice...bueno ¿puedo decirlo en español? ¿puedes entenederlo? Bueno...olvidando el tema de lenguajes, me gusta mucho esta escena, los colores me encantan,también me dan mucha curiosidad las sobras de ñas alas y del rostro.
Siempre me han gustado las imagenes as, honestamente, el color del fondo y tambin del alto personaje con alas, adems de la sombras, me sorprende el tamaño y el color que le das a la vestimenta y a la estructura del fono n.n Me encata, s en serio, 1000% honesto, me fascina esta epica, magica y bella imagen que subiste mi amigo, te quedo genial! ;)
P.D: ¿Tienes ms imgenes parecidas? jajaja n.n

It was teh damn pool that corrupted him.
What keeps pissing me off is that all of the angels are so much "weaker" than the demons. WTF? Seriously.

Now that I'm learning 3ds Max, my appreciation for 3d work has expanded. Not only do I think this unfinished piece is great, it inspires the shit out of me. I can't wait to get home and practice practice practice!

I'm glad you enjoy the piece. =} (I agree that learning the ins & outs of something makes it more appreciable, at-least subjectively)

I'm not an expert, and that is why I need to ask: why did you render it with Octane?
Raelsatu Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013   Digital Artist
Because I enjoy Octane's real-time interface & shaders, it provides relatively fast unbiased rendering using the GPU, and produces physically accurate results with ease. Not to mention it cost $50 when I originally bought it.

As for the noise.. that would be a byproduct of statistical variance, due to using an unbiased render kernel (PMC in this case). I could choose to let the render sit for another day or two to gather more samples, reducing the noise, but it doesn't bother me much. People complaining about it is secondary to me. (This part isn't directed specifically at you.. it's just for reference)
