    that sketch is pretty sweet ... it reminds me of these custom models i once saw online. they were a combination WWII and robotech-ish models, creating some pretty wicked concepts. they might be able to help you visualize your pic if/when you color it.

    if their site ever gets back up-and-running, check out Minion Control (it's not up as of the writing of this post ... it seems to be a little touchy like that).

    Really nice concept...I love it!

    I don't think your illustration quite does justice to the nice forms you have there, though, I'm not sure what's missing, but I think your grid construction lines are a little heavy for one thing, maybe either inking it or shading with a soft pencil?

    I guess I'd look at Feng's stuff and see what he does to make nice ideas like that stand out, then make a few photocopies and try markering it or something.

    nice work, I'd love to see more in that vein

    Hey thanks guys... I love this forum, keeps me truly motivated! Its feedback like this that makes me care enough to keep on working on these kinda pics.

    Odin: Yes, I'll color it and make a more detailed version... once I figure out how to!

    adillon: I gotta check out those robotech/ww2 models you were talkin about.. sure sounds promising

    saturn: I recently found fengs site on the net... already inspiring me, and hey, thanks for encouraging me man.

    Hey that's excellent: really shows it off nicely now

    only thing I'd do is alter the specular highlight on the bombs a little..make it a bit smaller and brighter so it looks more like paint.

    you going to do any more in that style?

    saturn: man I know, the spec is way off but im soooo tired of this pic ... I doubt I'll ever care enuff to fix it. thanks for critting tho.
    Also, yeah, I hope to do more stuff in this style... perhaps some japanese and allied crafts... well see!

    cucaracha: heh, I dont think anyone likes swastikas, but they do, no doubts, imprint a certain heavy evil mood to the entire craft.

    -Theo

    :chug:

    btw, beer is god.

    theo,

    i thought i'd let you know the minion control website is back up. you might want to check out the 'workshop' part of the website ... HERE ... and look under 'machines of war' on page 1, and the 'star wars' on page 2. these remind me so much of your sketch, and i thought they might help you out.
