Here I am posting some gesture drawings from ref I did two nights ago. I was sleepy, they turned out kinda crappy but still quite fun to do.
I’m coloring the demon series but also working on a parallel personal portfolio project, which will be my version of an old anime TV show I loved to watch (and still do), called Space Adventure Cobra. I was thinking Thundercats or Mazinga Z but Cobra has a wider set of different subjects to work on, so.
I’m not going to follow the anime style, just the main idea around the characters, creatures, vehicles, etc.. It’s going to be challenging but surely quite fun to do.
Below the naked girls you’ll see some thumbnails I did the other day. I wanted to try digital thumbnailing but there was a blackout so I went to the balcony for good natural light and started to sketch a la mechanical pencil. His name is Ben and is supposed to look friendly. He is Cobra’s domestic bot.
Anyways, some greetings for you:
Kaffinated – I’ve never read The Hobbit, but the thing about the cave and the loot is that it is the common setting to illustrate Smaug, at least is what I could see in most of the illustrations I checked online. Then I read a bit about Smaug going to the Lonely Mountain and that’s when I got the idea of him at the top of it, with clouds around, etc. I might have hurt some loyal Hobbit fans but it was all done for the sake of trying something new (it’s my second dragon design ever, I think). And with the skin/scale tone, I agree 100% with you. Good call. I will go a bit further and add more detail for sure. Thanks a lot for the suggestion!!
Nubb – weeehaaa, thank you man!
krossj – thank you!
artiphats – haha, oh wow, thank you so much for your words, and thanks again for your DEEP votes!!!
Quinn Simoes – thank you man, I’m glad you like it
Can I just say AWESOME, I come here far to seldom but I always get blown away, I love the level of detail you put into your pieces and I love the style! Just keep em coming!^^ Also I love your sense of gravity, its really nice!
thanks for your post luness. nice updates. post 141 is cool, nice you decided to do that in color, but maybe it could use more shadows, more contrast in light/shadow?
for your sketches, i really like that drawing style yur after, as i told you before. as for a crit, really, maybe you could push the contrast more... maybe you could do a piece with only blacks and whites? would be cool man! cya!!!
