Modanung outdoor proposal

I'll use this base plus my tower proposal to create something for close-to-the-temple zone and temple entrance

3rd concept (less Dragon more snake)

i believe this will work better with the 2d walls
to blend the snake into the wall a little better, maybe add some brick textures on the bottom of the neck and have it fade into a more smooth surface.
ill try something like that
EDIT: A thought just hit me! Why not make the snake into a mini-boss or enemy? It would be fascinating to see it writhing inside the wall trying to bite players as they walk by. Smile

this image is Just For Fun!!!!!!<----

By the way Axl, that lamp is looking MUCH better since you fixed the perspective. :)

Oh, and Len, the snake is definitely pulling together! I must say I like this version quite a bit!

I am currently undecided on the outdoor entrance and will wait until I can judge it in a more artistic rather than conceptual manner.

Honestly - I would see that snake emerging from the floor.

(two screen shots from Secrets of Evermore)

I found a monster which look surprising like the original concept, while i was playing Secrets of evermore.

snake boss from Evermore (nothing like the original concept)

Well, ive never seen Evermore before, the Snake was intended to be just a statue in the entrance from the original concept :) , like this

Image

As you can see i wanted to form a Snake head with the two snakes at the entrance like this

ImageImage

I really like what do we have right now, your contribution has been really positive it gives life to the whole thing.

But still I would like to see options like two snake heads statues in the temple entrance as i imagine from the beginning.

lol, i must be going insane for some reason i was thinking monster :oops:
it should be easy to adapt
Image
(super quick concept) only in the real one ill have their mouths open

i can also have them twist around a poll or have it closer to your original image
ImageImage
i can also have the snakes bodys threading in and out along the out side of entrance

Yea, I had that planned. This was a very early concept.

some time ago i made sort of "snake staff"...

maybe there can be some columns with snake around them on both sides of temple entrance...

Len, I was the one who suggested it be a monster/boss, so you were not totally off. Indeed I think it would be great to have a snake monster/boss within the dungeon. However, right now our focus is on the main entrance.

Also, I really like your concept Yosuhara! I do think that would fit quite perfect.

About as far as i can open the mouth without staring over "I'm lazy".
Only problem is a snake's fangs usually do not come out of that skin thing in their mouths unless its fully open. :?

keep in mind that ancient cultures where often somewhat off with their depictions
