    The terrible Twins are at it again....


    Destroyed a certain sketch for the WIP sorrdy.

    I selected a variation on the fourth rough concept.
    I decided to make Dan take a distant onlooker non dominant perspective and focus on the villain action.

    Afterall, everyone know's who Dan is allready ;P

    When I read the potential titles, the Twins just jumped out at me and I immediately got a Sci-Fi vibe off of it. Being a good artist I did 4-6 thumbnails for each of the titles, but in the end I ended up back at the twins. I like my layout, but now that I'm finished I don’t like that Dan is facing away form the viewer. I basically had to choose between Dan interacting with the Twins, or looking at the viewer. I think I made the correct decision, but it still would have been nice to show his face.

    Dan is primarily based on WW2 Fighter pilot uniforms as well as old school diving suits. I researched many of the more subtle details like the white piping to ensure they were accurate to the 50's fashion senses (and not to the 30’s or 40’s, after all, the future shouldn’t look like last decade…). Among the many facts I discovered while doing my research was that it was fashionable for 50s cowboys to cross-draw instead of side-draw their pistols. So while Dan will be lasing everyone in sight when he draws his weapon, it is accurate to the era.

    When I started in on it I was thinking I’d go with really basic shading, something that looked like it was designed for old school printing equipment, but as I got a bit further into the research I realized they weren’t as ‘primitive’ as I though, so I had to beef up my shading.

    I had a complete blast participating in this CHOW!

    Hmm, this isn't showing up in the preview. I'll try actually posting it to see if it works.

    Trying to get it to look like a pulp cover: faded simple colouring, years of wear and tear (hopefully the actual required designs aren't too obscured). Sergeant Dan was designed with the Biblical 'Daniel' in mind, while the Valkyrie is an attempt at something of an angelic cosmonaut.

    "Sergeant Dan and The Bat-Men of Thorium"

    Decided to go with Sergeant Dan and The Bat-men of Thorium...
    I had Frazetta in mind when I did the illustration.

    I think I could have made everything a little more dynamic and worked out the composition thoroughly before jumping into painting. Would've liked to polish it a bit more too but jumped in pretty late in the game.

    Awesome chow...I learnt a lot participating in this
    Great pieces everyone!

    Went with the Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon sci-fi theme, and reasoned that a Valkyrie "from the Void" might be quite different than what we're used to seeing.
