Trying to compete once again
A quick idea sketch before work
I went from violin to lute got inspired when I saw the back of what would appear to be most lutes they have a bunch of segmented looking pieces which got me thinking. I tried referencing Arabic and medieval clothes but it comes off more Arabic than anything else, and she is holding the case for her lute and it would seem I forgot to render it oh well I'm sleepy. I think I might call it quits on this one and go practice more tho. Any comments critiques are appreciated.
cool stuff guys, this is turning out to be a pretty interesting topic
heres some ideations from me. goin for a dj/b-boy sort of dude. gonna give him a dune-buggy/golfcart thing equipped with vinyl decks and mounted machine guns hope that counts as an instrument/weapon?
A bit of update, cleaning ups and lines. Will have to do the character sheet first before colouring and polishing this one. I always missed that step. Heheh.
I'm thinking, how he gonna hide that jumbo keytar when he supposed to go stealth?
Sooo many cool entries! I'll try to comment later, but I got to go now.
Keep it up guys!

Hmm... gone kind of cyber punk... I think I'm going to fix a bayanet to the guitar or summint. I'm having trouble with the face (I always do) if anyone's got any suggestions.
PixelTuner, I like the ref, a really bizzare mishmash. It doesn't scream dystopian future at me though. Maybe a bit more tech... or less tech might help.
Mcreation. Nice ideas. I like the thumb on the far left of that page too. Good simple pose. Maybe focus on the character before jumping in wit ha whole scene.
Mat Kaminski, I likr the sound gun. V badass.
Barefoot, yeah noise marines are cool! deffo feeling that influence.
VictorQ and Witcrack, lovely.
Some blogging - http://tomercs.blogspot.com/
mcreation- Thanks for the suggestion! I decided to go with that scabbard idea. Makes a lot more sense, haha.
Anyways, linework is done. Currently laying down some color palettes to see what I like best.
Throwing around some ideas, still have a bunch of notes to add in, also trying to stylise a bit, (longer limbs, smaller trunk etc) except I dont really know how yet lol. Instrument is churiken cymbals.. Not sure if I like them yet.
one more wip for today focusing more on the character, had some problems with the arms location, and i continue to think, that maybe they are not correct yet...to all how comment about my work, my thanks, i read and apreciated it...see if tomorrow i give my opinion on a few new ones
Alright, here we go! Colors have been applied, along with a few textures. Threw in a quickie background...
Just have to get to work shading, and I'll be done!
Some cool designs coming up. Cant resist doing a wastlander.
It's been a very long time since I've posted on here. No idea, if I'll be able to finish before the deadline as I'm moving this weekend. I sure hope I can.
Great to see that this is all still going on, and some brilliant ideas thus far.
heres a sketch of a kinda cartoonish guy, exaggerated proportions a bit in neck and head area(big neck, small head-) not sure it works though, probably doesnt work but its worth a shot.
"Art is never finished, only abandoned." Leonardo Da Vinci
theres alot of doom axing going on.
DUKE- I like how it is building, he looks like an old guy from the Rolling Stones already.
Witcrack - I think the legs are a little too long, the knee position seems ok, but the shins and feet are too big. The head seems small aswell. I really like the character though, seems like a cocky bruce campbell. rock on.
Herah - YES! awesome idea, love the bells on boots aswell. I get an instant recognition of the character. I think the strong geometric angles make this quite dynamic. Im not good at those at all so good start dude.
Lagarto - Persevere with the violin, you have put together a really good, dunesque, solid character. No crits or suggestions as you are doing great already, make it work but give yourself a break. Violins are TOUGH!
VictorQ - Real solid, tank girl vibe. flesh this out, its looking good. Seeing the back is really cool aswell. I also like the concept, alot.
Sorry if I missed anyone, just quick comments really.
Im thinking of a drone instument that could expell toxic gases as part of funeral,pilgramage type thing. Got other instruments in mind, will sketch those out too.
Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.
Figured I might comment on some works!
Pixeltuner Looking good as always! The head looks quite big though!
Barefoot I think that you have a solid idea. I'm looking forward on seeing how you turn that bagpipe into a weapon!
Lagarto Really nice pose going on, and that face is very authentic!
Ironbyte Awesome axe and headpiece! I do feel like her upper body is in movement, while the lower is static. Maybe that's just me.
Tomercs You can never go wrong with that mohawk. It feels as the back of the skull is way to large though? The face needs to be more proportional to the skull I think.
Dranyer I'd go with two as well. Looks a tad like Scarecrow!
lancer_idenoure Digging the direction and loving the monkey!
blazingdimensions The neck area works, but I don't think that the head does. Might be the floating hat!
PlasmaErnst I liked the first one a lot! It looks like the second one's junk is hanging out :'(
VictorQ Love it!
There's so many great entries, keep it up guys! Sorry if I missed you.
Here's how mine currently looks, fixed the fact the he almost fell over.
UCT - Thanks, I first thought of a harp idea that could be a bow an arrow. So then I started thinking of Native American ideas when I first started to sketch. As it developed though, it started to take on more of a 'rocker' look.
You, are totally right, it is starting to appear like Keith Richards.
With yours is that some poison gas that he is able to release with the press of a key? Or sequence of key strokes?
