Cleaning up


Minions of Cain

The portfolio section of this blog is kinda rubish, so I’m taking a bit of time to clean up some of the stuff that I posted here and get it in my portfolio. The first item is The Minions of Cain. There was always something that bothered me about that image. I’ve updated the faces, changed her pants to a skirt, redid here hair and redid a large part of the colouring. Way better I think.

I finally got around to colouring the Minions of cain. I spend the better part of today working on this, so right now I have absolutely no idea how happy (or not) I am with it. Better let it rest for I look at it again.


Update February 21 – 2010
More than a year later: like the colouring, hate the faces (especially hers). I expect to do an update sometime. Certainly when I start to work on the other band members, which I still want to do.

“The Minions of Cain are a progressive metal band best known for their duo guitar shredding skills”… or something. I came up with that name while playing Diablo II a couple years back. I played that way too much, my wrist still hurts from all the clicking. I’m looking forward to and at the same time dreading the day that Diablo III is released.

As for the drawing: I like where it’s going so far, I’m pretty happy with the poses.


Update October 26 – 2008
I forgot to mention that “Cain” is the main NPC in Diablo: the guy who gives you all the hints and backstory as you play the game. Minions are also a common thing in Diablo: every boss in the game has several smaller versions of hinself running around, his minions. Hence the name “Minions of cain”. I forgot that perhaps not everybody is that familiar with the Diablo.

Also, I’ve made the guitars bigger (as Frank suggests in the comments), I thinks it indeed looks better.
