Let's do Doom pt:8 Pain Elemental by Mechanubis Let's do Doom pt:8 Pain Elemental by Mechanubis
I really struggled with this one. I did like 20 different scetches before getting the result I wanted. I kept the creature as spherical as possible without making it look boring, so I went for a skull-like formation, with eye-like boneformations on it's frontal backplate. I also added a discusting looking pouch to it's buttocks, where it keeps all the lost souls before spitting them out at the player.

I feel as if they had brought the pain elemental back in doom 3,
this how it would've looked.
Great job!

maybe you should give him those two tiny arms he has in doom 1 and 2? :)

I wholeheartedly recommend you install the Brutal Doom mod. It improves the Doom-experience by 327 percent.

I imgine it having three mouths, one in the front, one in the left side acting as his left  arm, and other in right acting as his right arm, but this looks really cool!! :happybounce:  I might do my own version of the Pain Elemental soon...

I recommend. Pain elementals are the boss :3 Thank you very much. I like this one myself, although I gotta change the shape of the skull. Now those "calluses" look way too much like weepy eyes.

Looks more to me like a Zerg creature rather the original Pain Elemental.I think this change was a bit too drastic,although I have a hunch this rendition was based from the Doom 64 version.

You're actually not the first who've mentioned about the Doom 64's design. I did give it a glance at some point but didn't base this design on it. I mixed the shape of a skull with the tortoise-like, retractable head of the Pinky Demon.

Thanks for the comment. Cheers o/

I did try putting the lost souls into the image, but I couldn't come up with a satisfactory design for the little buggers. I'll redo this image after I design them, and make the eye-shaped bone formations a little more subtle.

Thanks for the comments o/

Very hellish, it has a certain Joe Mad feel to it which is always a positive aspect. It almost looks like its weeping with its sad eyes.

True thing about the "eyes". Although it was intentional, it sorta annoys me now. Have to work a little on that :/

Thank you very much :) I was actually worried about the whole cacodaemon-resemblance, consider the fact that they're both sperical, floating bastard. That's why gave my version of the cacodaemon more dinosaur-like head and some tentacles, so I'd have a little more elbowroom to work with this bad boy. Thanks again for the kind words and the faves ;)

Itīs still a nice drawing. Iīd put some more scales on top of them. That means if I was able to draw digitally as nice.
Have a nice evening, sir.

Mechanubis Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I think I'll just reshape the large scales. I don't want to cluster the damn thing with unnecessary details. The mouth/abdominal legs is where all the tinydetail-action is :P

Why should you draw digitally when you can get kickass results traditionally? Although digital is far less expensive in the long run. And easier 8B

I will indeed have myself a nice evening, thank you. May your evening be splendid as well. Cheers o/

Moar praktize. Or a Wacom Cintiq. I have both, and I can quarantee that the hand-eye coordination will come quite naturally in a few days. Although I strongly recommend that you don't start with heavily detailed stuff. Just blocking shit down is surprisingly fun digitally and then adding the details. Has quickened my process immensely :3
