Time for more weekend work. having come back from my business trip in poland, the first i wanted to do in my mind was do another character sketch. But i resisted those urges and went back to doing landscapes as i still have a few on my desktop. i limited myself to only a couple of hours as opposed to the days i invest in drawing something.

This was Valbergsveien 866-868, 8370 Leknes, Norway

You're making some awesome progress here, my dude.
One suggestion would be to make the shadows on the left have more of a blue tint to it, since they'd be reflecting light from the sky.

More weekend work. I was feeling excited to do another figure pic and i thought things were going ok with a low perspective approach. but after spending a day rendering it, i'm not entirely sure whether i want to continue with this.

i might just continue just to complete it and for sake of practice, but i don't feel anything for this pic and i haven;t sorted out the lighting/color/backgound yet.

i had thought to perhaps be a promotional poster for the imperial army in valkyria chronicles or perhaps an image of of a special forces unit in the game, but meh, guess i wasn't trying hard enough. Its probably why i don't make fan art at all. Its surprisingly difficult.

more weekend work. I'm continuing with the picture from yesterday. to hell with canon, i'm doing my own thing now.

Its still incomplete, i haven't got all the details down for the armor (its going to be ornate and/or damaged with scratches and pock marked with bullet holes and such).

Lighting not done as i intend to do it all in one go using lasso/cell shading methods. Will probably stay black and white but its going to be a tough road ahead methinks.

Weekend work and we finish the picture i was working on last week. Since i'm pressed for time (i need to pack my bags for my business trip to poland again) i didn't have time to change things extensively.

If i had more time, i would have expanded the canvas to get more of the battlefield/carnage/figures and such plus get composition to work out slightly better. This is probably where thumbnails come in handy but i just can't work small scale. In most cases my stuff is sort of spontaneous as opposed to planned.

i had hoped not go so comic book sketch like, i should have done more on the damage than leaving it basic scratches and pockmarked. But meh, it works and it conveys the idea well enough.
