Still supporting old design...
Armor looks cool, but the plating around the neck is... unfitting.
The stripes on the lower section of his helmet are missing, those are very important.
No need for tattoos, Vandheer favors simplicity I think... No need for things as jewels, cool looking tattoos, or clawed boots... But the armor looks badass :)

Tell me how to upload pictures from my PC then I will post one of my drawings.

And are those holes in his neck and arms?

I think i need to do a painting of this, cause i think the sketch is too vague.

I think the plating around the neck is the best part. I hate those mouth stripes on the old mask, i think they are much better suited for the eyes.
He hasn't got tattoos, its all armor, just badly drawn.

I'll be honest to say that I hate the old design. I did my best to make it look cool in Armed with Wings 3, but I've been trying to redesign Vandheer for years. I should post up some of the concepts.

I think i'm finally happy with this design.

I'm sorry, Daniel.

I can't really see the picture of Vandheer.

All I can see is a frog which is frozen in a cube of ice.

Would you mind to post it again, please?

I would like to see it and give comments. :)

Anyways this is my ideal of Vandheer:

Took the pics with my mobile.... Would have used a camera though I couldn't find one :?
Will try to make a better one.

-- Mon Mar 07, 2011 6:14 pm --

7 big changes, that's all I can count.

Can you figure them out?

-- Mon Mar 07, 2011 6:39 pm --

Sratch that. 9.

And Dan you said that you hate the old design. Was that the reason why you decided that Vandheer dies in the end?

Personally he looks more like what I would imagine a water master to look like, but that's probably just me.

I hate the design because I made it in 2007, and I've become a far better artist than I was back then. Nebula has been through hundreds of designs and yet even he isn't finished yet.

look
Image
This is Vandheer as we know him. His design doesn't reflect any particular culture, his mask looks like shreeder. It dosen't scream king, it dosent scream power, nor respect, nor danger ect...
I've managed to make this Vandheer cool because 1. In AwW hes a silhouette. So a lot of the details are lost, the player can interpret him just like how a book reader interpret characters in novels. 2. I've created the right attitude for him, smug, full of himself, condesending ect.

The design itself could be so much more.

Vandheer is suppose to be a Warrior King, someone who has achieved nearly god like status and as such, his design should reflect that.
His mask is now nearly blank, very godlike. I've covered him up more in armor, this adds a lot of mystery. Claw feet are like dragons, dragons are fierce creatures (part of his armor). Horns on his mask are similar to the old design, only longer.
I've got this cool thing going on with his arm armor, notice how his armor turns into his hand. All the weird stuff like that + the claw feet make it questionable if hes even human (which would be very scary for his people, few would dare to deny him).

Observe some of my favorite pieces of art.

hmm....I think the guy in second picture is lone warrior ( the one who kneel on the ground )..............
Nononono, his hair style doesn't look like this..
Network and Nebula...it seems that I mix them up.
Anyway, Network looks great....You know....those smoke around add some mysteriious effect.
Daniel, Looks like you are absessed with Network / Nebula.

Good pic.

About Vandheer.
The stripes on his face are not actually stripes just.... How can I tell.... Let me show u.
Image

So there. I can't tell you what they are... layers? I can't explain with my English knowledge.
Anyway these and the spiky hair are needed. I mean who cares about their hair when they have a world to rule...

As to the armor: I would imagine he doesn't think he needs it. You said it, he is the most powerful man in the world. They look cool on his legs, but anywhere else it just doesn't suit him. Noone would be able to lay a sracth on him anyways.

He looks a lot like a godlike being, even without the extras. Everyone thinks so after they played AwW 1.

-- Tue Mar 08, 2011 1:21 pm --

And most importantly: Even if the gap on his helm looks wide, Vandheer Lorde's eyes cannot be seen. Even if you use a flashlight, it will remain dark. That's just how it is...

Armed with Waffles, I understand that you've made a connection to Vandheer, which is great. But the design is lacking, thats all there is to say.
My characters constantly change. They will continue to do so until i'm satisfied.
This is Vandheer Lorde. I'm quite happy with this design.

I know... I fall in love with characters from games and anime so easily. But you character designs are so very uniqe. I mean a warrior-king with a helm, badass superpowers, a rebel swordsman with cool looking hairstyle, long uniqe robe, and scarf, Blackmist...
They are special. Their looks, their attitude, and their story. And if we don't know their background we can always use our imagination. This universe you created is far more exciting than anything I have ever seen. It deserves much more. To be a film, a non-flash game or an anime. I got Vandheer vs. Armed with Wings Round 1, Round 2, Leo vs. Vandheer Round 1 done in my head already. Working on Network vs. Armed with Wings. Also I made up stories of things that happened before the rebellion, or while Armed with Wings was on his way to defeat Vandheer.
And see, that's the best. The story may have been finished ( wich I doubt) but it hasn't even begun yet.

Thanks man. I really feel like my job is done when people connect with my work. While i'm at it, thanks to all the forums members here, who love Armed with Wings so much.
I'm glad this forums loves my original work rather than my old sprite work (Power Star, All Star Adventure ect).

Try and chuck Nebula in your story, I'm intrested to see how people fit him him based from his look.
