Looks like I'm not the only one who is familiar with the NES Metal Gear. Excellent stuff, especially the marker and Gouache renderings. I'd like to see more Wheeljack drawings though, along with other lesser-known Transformers.
Ahh we have responses! Thanks for stopping by all!
KonnA: I love all the Metal Gears but MGS3 just struck a chord with me at the right time. I'm not too fond of MGS 4 and MGS2 was in my opinion the worst out of all of them. Even worse than " Snakes Revenge". That's why I dont' draw Raiden. I'd draw other characters though if you have any suggestions.
sodAp: Thanks Man!
FightingSeraph: Yes it is up to us to keep the NES Metal Gear Flame Alive! Glad to see you like some of my work here and I too would love to see some more Transformer pics but I disagree that wheeljack was one of the lesser know characters! ( I'm biased you see) I think we need to see more Huffer, Ironhide and Brawn drawings personally.
A couple of turnarounds and another MGS 3 image. Also I included a bad page of me just sketching with a Wacom. I'm having a hard time getting comfortable with it but when at first you don't succeed.....
Here are a few more pages from the ol Sketchbook. I became a Dad in 2009 so sketching was not a priority at all. Thankfully things have settled down a bit and I have been able to pick up a pencil again and this is what I've managed to cook up. I went to a figure drawing class a couple of weeks back for the first time in about 6-7 years and BOY was I Rusty! I only put up one quick sketch from that session but I intend on going to a few more sessions in 2010. Also, I have a page in here from the Draw what everyone else looks like thread. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...152123&page=43
Awww...your drawing of Mysocksrock is a lot better then mine. Though I have nothing to complain about, because you probably spent a lot more time on yours, and you are a wonderful artist. It was an honor to have lost a duel to you, good sir
GogoJoJo: I did not know that it was a competition but I accept your compliments and salute your cordial manners sir.
UmpaArt: Thanks Man. It's nice to hear that I d the MGS stuff justice. A high compliment indeed. When are you going to give MGS a shot? I'm not sure if there was a Wheeljack in Twisted metal but the one I take my name form is a G1 Transformer. He's depicted in my Avatar.
These drawings look great. The zombie girl in #108 is badass, and some of your characters have great poses. The last head in your last update is very well-done also, in a very elegant and effective way.
Some of your characters' hands seem a bit small, especially obvious on the muscular warriors - they tend to have large, powerful hands like laborers, and it's not uncommon for artists to exaggerate them even further for the strong man type characters. Keep up the awesome work!
