Hey Guys!
So the Newest Crypt of the Necrodancer DLC has been announced! Check out the trailer right here!
I've been working on the concepts and stuff and will be posting them here as they are revealed in the Early Access DLC.

Here's a couple early ideas for What Nocturna could look like! These were super early on but it was really fun to play around with different ideas and lore in the characters. I'm partial too the grubby adventurer in the Batbarian. I also called her Batara, Lols.

Thanks for checking it out! More coming soon-ish!

I like both, but no. 2 is definitely more striking.

jouste responds:

thanks! I agree the final design is fun too!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I preferred the first character. Although the second one still has potential. Maybe it is the body size or the skin color or maybe the ax that I don't quite like. All that I know is that the second image has good elements but they don't quite mesh right and I totally think that the first one needs no change.

jouste responds:

I actually find the first character a pretty boring look.

And I'll definitely agree that there's probably way too much going on in the second image. That's the best part about concept art, you can push things like super crazy and pull them back in the final, or take them out completely! Thanks for the feedback!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

So cool! Interesting takes on the character. I didn't know you did work for Crypt of the Necrodancer! Great work regardless, the bat-theme on the second design is pretty good, I liked the "bat-tle" axe and the shield is pretty wonderful too.

jouste responds:

yeah the shield is actually the one the Death Metal Boss uses. I was thinking about trying to tie in the lore from the later game. thanks for the comment! Great hearing from you!
