    Heavy Artillery

    Hello, hope I'm posting this in the right place. It's a b/w drawing of a large artillery. The gun in the middle can swing up 90 degrees. When the body turns, the font/rear wheels rotate 45 in opposite direction. Comments or suggestions please let me know.

    Thanks, I did it on a tablet pc in Alias Sketchbook program. Draw straight lines and circles, I put ruler and ellipse guide on top of the screen.

    That's really cool. I can't comment much on the art side, being not much good at it, but as a design the only slight flaw I see is the folding gun barrel. The barrel wouldn't be able to sustain the pressure (when firing) of such a large weapon with a join there in the barrel.
    But the design is very good, like something they should have in Halo or Warhammer 40k

    I reject your reality and substitute my own!

    Thanks, I never thought about the firing pressure in the barrel would do to those parts. A bit hard to see, but the actual barrel diameter is the small piece that stick out at the end. It might be ok, but I see what you mean.

    This is really good linework. I appreciate your precision and think that you did a good job.

    The one critique i have is that the 3 dimensional views are a little bit isometric. Maybe push the perspective just a LITTLE bit by using the "Perspective" tool or "Warp" tool (in photoshop). You don't really have to do this, because it looks fine, but it might make it a bit more interesting. Like I said, only a little bit. If you push the perspective too much it looks weird/warped.

    If you really want to blow us away, you should color/render these things.

    Thanks, Sometimes I do go overboard pushing the perspective when drawing small parts. When doing the overviews, I often not pushing it far enough. Thanks for your advice, giving me something to think about when picking a view.

    It would be fun for me to try to do some renderings sometimes.
