Great start from everyone so far!
This is an interesting topic. I approached this as if there were many more races in the galactic soviet union. This commander would be a very old, very intelligent humanoid alien. First sketches to explore the idea.
@Parsakoira - great work! almost looks completed.
@jPerols - nice expression and gesture
@Pixeltuner - good start. maybe try to get some more emotion into the character?
starting late , hope I can finish it
Here's my ref sheet for the red commander. Uploading sketch today as well
The Red Commander was a popular dancing bear in the Moscow Circus who volunteered for cosmonaut training. His technical aptitude and dancer's grace with a bear's commanding presence made him shoot through the ranks. Being responsible for the fate of the workers of the Earth and he's hitting the bottle hard.
Alright, I'm goofing off, but I read the subject and really wanted to draw a cosmonaut bear!
The Red Commander was the most popular dancing bear in the Moscow Circus before volunteering for cosmonaut training. His dancer's grace, technical skill, and commanding presence allowed him to shoot through the ranks. Now the fates of billions of his comrades hang in the balance, and the pressure has driven him deeper into the Vodka bottle. Can he pull through with an all-or-nothing shot at victory against insurmountable odds? Do bears poop in their space suits?
Alright, really this was just an excuse to draw a cosmonaut bear. Cary on.
this theme is scared me... but it's funny at the same time I think. and here is my sketch)
Here's mine so far. A bit worried I'm short of the 3/4ths rule, could anyone confirm? TY
hello, heres what i am working on
Went back to the drawing board. I didn't realize the character had to be human based on the brief. There are many good starts. It will be interesting to see where they go.
thats awesome JavierP
Great topic! Just a quicky no time to devote to it I'm afraid
Krill that is sweet, things could go very dune on this one
Hopefully get started on back and front views soon.
I sketched this guy tonight. I'm not sure what he'll be doing with his right arm yet.
That's a mask, by the way.
throwing some values
Some really cool looking designs on here. Here's my quick sketch. A little late in the game.
Some really sweet looking entries. Got a busy weekend, hope I can finish on time.
