Randall Mackey's journal of adventures
Oi, fellow brigands of the pen, brush and pixel! I have been serving in the Army for 7 years now, and am on my way out. I hope to work somewhere in illustration, hopefully concept art for games. I have been drawing since I quit eating the crayons, worked as a professional tattoo artist for four years, and been "allegedly" accused of writing my name on things that don't belong to me in very fancy letters, with spray paint (I am retired, fear not). My other hobbies include video games (lots of Starcraft II!), trying not to get tickets in my Subaru WRX and stacking up more toys and loot to adorn my desk and office. I look forward to forging myself into the next generation of badass production artists! Cheerz.

The only problem for me here is that your design for the first one seems to be really crowded. The whole lots-of-stuff-sticking-out thing could work, but there needs to be a sense of it coming together, otherwise it all looks kind of chaotic and it makes it very hard for the eye to figure out the focal point. I also often get carried away with adding too many bits and pieces here and there, and I've found that coming up with a solid idea and a handful of preliminary thumbnail sketches can help the final product in looking more polished.

thanks for stopping by. At first I thought the picture on the top of the page is a gun. But than the back part didnt fit and I was wondering how possibly could somebody hold it. Next time, place it on orbit or in to space. Will you also post some of your drawings? One can tell a lot from that. Also, put your sketchbook link as your signiture, so everytime you make a post, people can look right at your art work. Keep it up .

Ultra fast craft popular with tuners. Extremely dangerous and hard to handle inside the gravity well of a planet. It is encouraged that pilots only drive under full power well out of high traffic space lanes and outside of the controlled atmospheres. But of course that is no fun, is it?
Also have been converted by small private militaries for super fast attack craft, usually attacking large slow frigates and transports.

Awesome ships and stuff. You need more work on the character renderings though. I suggest doing some fruit studies in PS.
Though the bamboo forest is dense, water flows through it freely.

really good ship/vehicle concepts...But characters require more anatomy study.Your proportions are off, but i think you'll get over the problem only with practice.

I really love the first sketch, you are very good in drawing technical
stuff with details. It looks like your better in technical stuff than with
life drawing,.....The space ships look very professionally done I like
how you show the size of the vehicle by showing some people.

I dig the dungeon raider female!
Those kinds of hard perspective drawings can be daunting so props to ya mate!
However, there appears to be something a little off, not sure if it's a perspective mistake or maybe some missing shades to polish off the look. Any ideas guys?

Your imaginative work is certainly looking awesome; reminds me I need to do more stuff from imagination. I'd also like to see more photo and life studies; I think that would help you get your colors and values down better and make your imaginative work improve along with your understanding. Keep up the good work.

Either captured at birth, or bred (no one knows), these soldiers are enslaved to the Demon Overlords. This allows them a mortal army to dominate the lands of men. Trained and tortured from birth by enslaved acolytes, the boys are forced to withstand horror beyond imagining. Upon reaching a mature age they are built into the torturous suit of armor. The suit is powered by a small ember of Brimstone from Hades itself (center chest). This ferocious energy powers the massive armor, making it run dirty, and incredibly loud. Some of the Brimstone's noxious fumes are channeled into the Mindless one's breathing apparatus, keeping him in a constant trance like state, and inline. It also causes apparitions (such as a puppy, or such) that the soldier thinks will guide him, and permanent insomnia. In a sense, these soldiers are already in hell when they enter combat.
There are two differing sects that argue about whether or not these are actually men. The highly funded and heavily equipped (by the Church no doubt) group or warriors, known as the Paladins rage that they must be purged, and purified through blood and fire. While an underground group of scientists and small religious sects, calling them selves the Sensible, believe that they can be rescued from the armor, and the power of the Demons. Little is known about any successful attempts at removal and subsequent salvage of the "human" inside.
