One of the most difficult concepts in creating a comic book is bringing a character to life. Most of us have been in our rooms drawing Spider-Man or Batman. The more we practiced the better we got at drawing our favorite comic book characters. But if any of you have ever tried to create your own comic book character you know it is no that easy especially if it is something that has never existed before. For Tim Nardelli creating the Demonolith was one of biggest challenges for the comic book Night Terror.
While Tim was able to conceptulize the look of the two dimensional look of the Demonolith, he needed the help of artist Kevin Cassidy to bring the demon to life. Cassidy who is a senior design artist for Bethesda was able to create a three dimensional look to the Demonolith. For Tim this was important so he could have different angles to put the creature into his comic book. Depending on the panel location of the page it was important for Tim to be able to position the Demonolith in the proper setting for his comic book.
