This piece was inspired by Gears of War, but isn't really related. Mainly I was just trying to use brushes that I suck with to push my skillz. 4 hours in CS1. C&C welcome : )
shit is cool man especial the graphic integration with the illustration. My crit is that the bullet that is to the far left and half cut off to me makes it seem like the bullets are raining in form off the page somewere and not from his gun. Other than that the motion to the legs and the overall feel flows pretty well together
he seems to be missing a neck, as if his skull is growing from his clavicles. i guess watch for that next time. nice render though.
ZOMFG CRIT MY SKETCHES FTW!!!
thanks dudes - much appreciated!
The bullets were not intended to look like they are coming from the gun, just a graphic element. Otherwise they would be just shells : ) And yeah Black Mesa is a HL2 reference, just thought it sounded cool...
