The Green Bastard

The demons of the forests and mountains are separate from the race of humans. They emerged in an earlier Creation, made by older gods. The ones that have survived into the age of the current Creation are powerful and strange, but rarely seen. Occasionally, though, the demons grow covetous and lustful. Distrustful of each other, they vent their desires upon humans, who are too weak to resist. When a male demon mates with a female human, the union always results in a child, for a demon's seed is powerful, and the child is always male. These children go by many names, but the most common name, spat out with disgust by husbands and fathers, is Bastard.

I sketched this guy out months ago, but it was only recently that I dusted him off and rendered him up.

If you have the time, please check out the short story I wrote about this character. Link.

Here's a digital sketch of a similar sort of character. I'm planning on doing five of these characters, all half-brothers, as well as the demon who fathered them.

Love it, dude! I really like the render style on the top one, and the design too. The sword and the hand holding it seem a little off to me.

What did you use to make the second sketch though? It looks like graphite to me but then I saw you mention it being a digital sketch...

You already know what I think, but I'll say it here, beautiful stuff mate :)

the character in his face and eyes is what really sells this piece for me, great job man!

Brilliant synopsis to go with this character! Going to read the story now, you've sold me. =^) I am looking forward to seeing more of these, especially the father. I imagine he will be less human in appearance, and very curious to see how you approach his look.

Thanks for sharing yout work!

Guido- Thanks! That hand and sword were a problem area from the very start. As for the brush, it's a custom Photoshop brush that I made using the texture and dual brush options. A lot of people asked about it, so I made a little tutorial on it in this post if you're interested.

Scott- Thanks, man!

Davi- Thanks, dude!

William- Thanks! Awful in a good way, I hope.

Jason- Thank you! I hope you enjoyed the story. His older brothers are less human than him, and his father is the least human of all, as you guessed. He'll look vaguely like this .

Really dig the spiral tusks.!!
