Cool stuff man. Really liking the looseness of your work.
Looking for Feedback! Please visit my sketchbook..
Soo, as promised, replies for tout le monde!!!
Yeah I think that sketching is the most important phase. Although I stil think that the image ended up cliche nevertheless. But atleast It got better in terms of composition I think.
Those circles are just articulation. Didn't think of adding wheels, although its a good idea: Ghost in the Shell style
hunchback: Thanks for the kind words. I hope my comment on your work were really helpful
Charles Ratteray: Danke!
Janos: Thanks. Although my sketches are seldom "fast" nowadays
Ricardo Robles: Thanks Ric! Yeah I spose I could've given it some more reflected light, but chose instead to to let your imagination wander. That and the fact that I was too afraid to screw up the shapes o.o
MacTire: Thanks! And again, they aren't really speedy
kischi : Gracias!
knut-: Glad you like them. I study alot of things: biology (arthropods mostly for "crab mechs"), war vehicles, robotics, etc.
May seem like a chore, but I really love learning about such things, and in fact, I usually study much more than what is needed for painting.
Ivan Turcin: Thanks Ivan, and agreed!
biglu: Thanks, glad you enjoy them!
Verehin: I take that as a good sign?!
liquidjack: Interesting that you mention such an old work... I look at most of my old stuff and go "bahhh!" in 0.5 picoseconds nowadays.
But glad you like it
dessinateurimpulsif: Thanks alot man!
LAL: Thanks! Glad you like it!
Fiddzy: Thanks, hope it was usefull
cout<mecha: You are right, its not the most maneuverable design ever.
But then again, I don't think that any Mech could beat a regular tracked tank in terms of functionality: Tanks can travel at high speed, are pretty much all terrain (they can even climb stairs!), and are more durable (due to less exposed moving parts).
So I really just draw those sort of mechs because I love their look
Lateman: Glad you like it, thanks! That abstract part is really struggle. Glad people see it going somewhere!
Seraph Fawkes: Thanks!
Bing!: Thanks for the kind words!
I use textured brushes through the whole painting, from beginning to end. The same goes for plain brushes, particle brushes, etc etc. I have a very organic approach to things too.
T.a.i.v.a.s: Thanks! I just wish I'd improve faster
Rollingman: Thanks glad you like it!
For colors I use various techniques, and none of them involve starting in grayscale: I may start with the white canvas, picking the colors in the sliders (color theory for the win!), I may start with a texture, or I may overlay images\strokes on top of one another. Or a mix of all those techniques.
aLDoDarK: Thanks, glad you dig it!
You should try PS... really the best imaging software around IMO!
Call0ps: Epa! Muita treta na vida a roubar tempo Mas sim, não paro de pintar!
Outro lado do mundo? Não estavas na inglaterra?! (que por falar nisso hei-de te xagar em relação a isso... tou a pensar mudar-me para la daqui a uns mesitos, e opinioes\dicas são bem vindas!)
Que tens andado a planear?
Espero que gostes dos dois biscoitos que deixei em cima!
Yor: Thanks! You will, in due time
loper42: Thanks!, Glad you like it!
RicardoGuimaraes: Obrigadão! Tugas FTW!
Holland: Nailed? Not yet
Thanks for the cheer up!
kingkostas: Thanks! I'm right here! And I'm afraid I'll get a stroke when I check up your SB, if you're still updating at the pace you did when I vanished into the shadows
SnobbyOo: Thanks! Feels good to show stuff actually
Kambei Shimada: Glad you like it!
