art dump: notes taken from polycount sketchbook thread
after a series of still poses it was apparent that anything i do in the rider vein has to be moving and dynamic. i also decided to give myself bonus points if i managed to have one rider killing the other one brutally.
this particular rider is a hybrid of a warrior and master of the dark arts. so i guess that means he's not really a master of the dark arts, more like a dark arts hobbyist. he's sold himself out to some horrible deity and summoned a dreaded "psyclone" to ride from the twisted fields of the dark unknown! these creatures were once dimensional travelers seeking the universe's ultimate truths but after discovering a fraction of it they went so crazy they turned into these wierd bat things! doomed for eternity to be servants of an awful cthulhu like monster and those that worship him!
the rider has also just finished of some guy with a weapon kinda based off a kusari gama.
