Hey all.....just thought I'd add something from my sketch pile. Wasn't really too happy with the result of the body casing.....any suggestions?.....I might just leave it and see how it looks coloured. I was mostly focused on the head and lost a lot of energy doing the body.
here's the original on trace...I had to scan it twice and paste them together
this is the clean up in PS7
overall body colour using hue/saturation
more highlights/two tone shading...fairly simple
a new layer of red paint and white lettering added...the funnest part
detail of paint chipping off
fooling around with the look
